The origin of the custom of bridal showers is probably one of the most selfless thing I’ve ever read about friendship. This tradition is said to have started due to the dowry practices imminent before. For when a bride-to-be is poor and her family does not have enough money for a dowry or when a father refused to give a dowry because he did not approve of the marriage – that’s when the friends would swoop down and save the day coming with gifts that will allow the marriage to happen. Right now, bridal showers simply celebrates your relationships with your entourage with a simple meal (compared to bachelorette parties which means a whole night of partying). But given that opportunity I love how our bride, Katie, made sure that the girls in her life are treated specially with this amazing museum bridal shower in pink. The centerpieces, the table setting, and the favors are all so delectable and pretty that it might even be perfect for a wedding too.
