Bridal Shower ThemesWritten by Samantha Taylor

Room-of-the-House Bridal Shower - Similar to "around-the-clock" theme listed above; this theme requires each guest to bring a gift in relation to a specific room in house. One guest might be assigned kitchen; while another might receive bedroom. Each guest would have to choose their gift pertaining to room on invitation.Stock Bar - This theme requires each guest to bring wine, beer, spirits or liquor; which couple can use to stock their bar at home. You may want to assign each guest a different kind of liquor to ensure that couple doesn't end up with 10 bottles of tequila!
The you choose will have a great impact on success of your bridal shower. Make sure theme is suitable for personality of bride; otherwise she may be disappointed with outcome. Also take into consideration types of gifts couple could most use. If they already have a stocked bar, a "stock-the-bar" shower won't be a helpful theme. The outcome of this shower may determine whether or not you're ever asked to throw another one. But remember, above all, have fun!

Once you've jotted down your ideas, you'll want to express them in a smooth and flowing manner. You may want to start with past memories and work your way to present instead of jumping randomly from topic to topic, as this will give impression that you took little time to prepare your vows.Incorporate common expressions of love such as "I love you" or "I can't live with out you". Once you have completed your vows be sure to read them over 2 or 3 times to ensure that they convey exactly what you want your partner to know. You might want to have a friend, family member or your wedding officiant to read them to ensure that they are appropriate and meaningful.
It's important to personalize your wedding vows and make them unique to you and your fiancée. Wedding vows are meant to convey your feelings of love. They explain why you're choosing to spend rest of your life with your partner. Regardless of what you write, your partner loves you and is going to cherish your wedding vows as long as they come from heart.
