Unless you're planning a weekend getaway or you've got something super fun planned, chances are you wouldn't actually put your guests through a round-the-clock bridal shower. In case you've heard of this theme and aren't sure what it would entail, here's an explanation (and some inspiration).
"Guests are assigned a time of day in their invitations, and asked to pick a gift from the registry that the bride and groom would use at that time of day," North Branford Patch reports. "For example, 11 a.m. might mean brunch – so a waffle iron would be an appropriate gift."
This is not only more fun for your guests (whoever gets the late-night hours is bound to take a bit of extra liberty with their gift), but it could also provide some direction to those who aren't quite sure what to bring.
In return, you could prepare bridal shower favors for each guest that are also based on a specific time of day. Mini purse shaped manicure sets are perfect for those leisurely Saturdays - as for happy hour, consider throwing in a personalized stemless wine glass.
