10 Bridal Shower Themes for Summer

10 Bridal Shower Themes for Summer

These summer bridal shower themes are perfect for sunny weather and relaxed days.


Berry Season

When you consider bridal shower themes for summer, there are several things to think about. You need to find a party that will fit the relaxed vibe of the season, be enjoyable in warm weather and, of course, a theme that the bride will love. These 10 themes all fit the bill!

First, summer is the season of berries. We love this Strawberry Shortcake-inspired bridal shower (also seriously perfect for ’80s kids) with lots of berry treats and pink decor.


Nautical Nights

If you live near the water and the bride loves seafood, plan a simple evening on a shaded patio eating local seafood and admiring the view. Bonus points for East Coast prep decor at your clam or lobster bake.


Citrus Shades

From fresh lemonade to Key Lime pie, citrus flavors go hand in hand with enjoying summer’s warm days. Adopt a citrusy color palette and serve lots of zesty sweets.


Backyard Barbecue

Especially for a couple’s shower, there’s nothing more laidback than a backyard barbecue with a hot grill and a cooler full of cold beers. Put out a nice spread of burger and hot dog toppings, turn on some good music, and have a great time.


Decor In Bloom

Brightly colorful flowers are perfect for the summer season. This awesome cake topper features a garden of flowers in vibrant hues. If you aren’t hosting the party in a garden, create your own with paper flowers and hang them around the room.


Mimosa Bar

Summer bridal showers are the perfect excuse to indulge in a little daydrinking (and when “little” becomes “a lot,” just remember that Uber exists for a reason). As the hostess with the mostess, create an unparalleled mimosa bar, complete with different fruit juices and frozen fruits to keep the champagne chilly in each glass.


Scream for Ice Cream

The best thing about bridal shower themes for summer is how fun they can be! Why wait for the neighborhood ice cream truck, when you can create the ultimate ice cream cones in your own home? Design a bar with yummy and unique toppings and several flavors of ice cream to cool off at a party on a hot day.


Lawn Games

From croquet to oversized Yahtzee, find some dappled shade and play some lawn games. This activity goes well with a brown bag-style picnic or a backyard fête.


Fun Fiestas

Decorate your back patio with papel picado, paper lanterns, colorful flowers, and delish Mexican food for a fun-filled fiesta bash.


Spa Day

Warm summer weather can sometimes be hard on your skin. Indulge in a spa day either at home or at a local salon and treat yourselves to facial masks and pedicures. These photo props are hilarious and very cute. Use them to create some memorable snaps of the party.
