Bridal showers are an enduring tradition, bringing family and friends together to celebrate this important transition in a woman’s life. There is usually one main shower, organized by the Maid or Matron of Honor with help from the bridesmaids and women in the bride’s, and sometimes the groom’s, immediate family. Sometimes it’s not convenient for everyone to travel (such as if the bride lives far from other family and friends), in which case local friends may organize a second shower. And of course co-workers will often throw one too. Whoever is looking for ideas and venues for trendsetting Raleigh-area bridal showers will find them here at Weddings Magazine.
