There's something to be said about the never-ending party - you don't come across it often, but every once in awhile, you strike the perfect balance of levity within a group that encourages everyone to stay for awhile. Perhaps bridal showers in particular are taking a turn for the lengthy, as weekend-long soirees seem to be one of the next big things.
"Many Maids of Honor are deciding to take the bride even further away and arranging a weekend trip for the girls," EasyWeddings.com reports. "Usually more sedate than a hen’s party weekend, bridal shower weekends tend to be arranged around an event such as a spa day, a show or exhibition, or a shopping trip. Another great option is to stay at a winery for the weekend."
More than just an afternoon's worth of fun, a weekend-long shower needs to be centered around activities that gladly take up everyone's time. Even a trip to a cabin or beach-side villa could be well worth a few days' time without needing to be overly structured.
Of course, you'll need bridal shower favors that answer the call of such a memorable affair. Miniature flower pots may be the perfect emblem of slow, steady progress, or you can turn it into an affair of its own by offering everyone do it yourself bridal shower favors that all of you can work on together.
