First, you’ll have to secure a venue where you can celebrate. It is often one of the hardest things to assure because venues are usually booked. So you have to be on top of things and book beforehand.
Next thing to keep track of is when you’ll have the bridal shower. You’ll have to make sure that the date is perfect for everyone. If one can’t go, it’s best that you find a mutual day because the bride will probably want all of her closest friends and family to be there.
