What is a Bridal Shower Bonnet?

The bridal shower bonnet is a very simple item that, as its name suggests, is used as a hat. The bridal shower bonnet is made during the party itself, while the bride-to-be is opening her presents.

The maid of honor collects ribbons, bows and other items used to decorate the gifts for the bride-to-be. With the help of a paper plate, tape and scissors, she makes a bridal shower bonnet. It is flashy, colorful and fun.

According to tradition, the bride-to-be puts on the bonnet in order to have some fun pictures once the bridal shower is over. The bridal shower bonnet can also be used during the wedding rehearsal dinner.

Traditions have changed a lot and the creation of a bridal shower bonnet is far from mandatory. Still, this item can add to the fun of the party.

How to Make a Bridal Shower Bonnet
The maid of honor works on the bonnet, as soon as she receives materials from yet another gift package opened.

Ribbons and bows get glued to the cardboard plate. The order and arrangement is entirely dependent on your creativity and inspiration at the moment. There are no specific rules concerning the shape of the bonnet.

Two holes should be punched on the sides of the plate. Pass long ribbons through those in order to be able to tie the ‘bonnet’ on the head of the bride-to-be. Now you are ready to start taking pictures.

You can make the task easier by starting at the center and adding more elements in a circular fashion. You are free to experiment with colors, patterns and textures. The final result should be jolly and very fun. Another element that you will need is the bride-to-be’s sense of humor.

The bridal shower bonnet used to have an important role in the past but today it acts mainly as a souvenir. The bride-to-be can keep it at home as a symbol of friendship and the good time she had during the party.

The bridal shower bonnet can come in innovative forms and shapes. Add flowers or other materials to it to make it even more fun.

Has the bride-to-be received many presents? You can create several bonnets – one for the future bride and the rest for her bridesmaids. The first one needs to be most impressive, while the others can share a common element. Have all of the ladies wearing their bonnet and enjoy the party.

A bridal shower bonnet is a fun addition to the party. Though this item is traditional, you can enjoy modernizing it and coming up with something unusual and abstract.
