What is a Lingerie Bridal Shower
A lingerie bridal shower is similar to a traditional bridal shower but more intimate.
It’s a gathering of friends and close family to celebrate the upcoming wedding of the bride and groom.
Where a lingerie party differs from a traditional bridal shower, is primarily when it comes to gift giving and games.
Instead of traditional bridal shower gifts, guests bring lingerie items, sleepwear, or intimate accessories for the bride.
The idea is to shower the bride with a collection of lingerie for her honeymoon and married life.

These are are few of our favorite locations for a lingerie party:
Hosting a lingerie shower in someone’s private home can lend itself to a more private and intimate party.
Restaurant or Tea Room
Consider reserving a private room in a restaurant or tea room for a unique and elegant setting.
Depending on where you go, some locations will even offer special catering services for your event.
Some lingerie boutiques offer space for private events. This can make for an ideal setting for a lingerie shower. Plus, guests can browse and shop during the party!

Lingerie Party Invitations
Like other bridal shower invitations, be sure to include all the necessary details on the invite.
This is especially important with a lingerie-themed shower.
You’ll want to be specific in your instructions and be clear about what is to be expected.

Decorations for a Lingerie Party
Your chosen venue can help to dictate the type of decorations you will choose.
How you decorate in a private home or hotel suite will be different than say at a restaurant or tea room.
However, there are some staple decor ideas for a lingerie party that are a must regardless of location.
This “Ooh La La Balloons Banner” is a fave.

Lingerie Bridal Shower Games
Every bridal shower needs a couple of games to add to the fun!
You can always opt for traditional bridal shower games OR you can spice up the event with lingerie-themed games.
One of our all-time favorite lingerie games to play is the “Panty Game”.
Prepare to laugh A LOT playing the “Panty Game”.
For this bridal shower game, each guest is asked to bring an unwrapped pair of panties to the shower for the bride-to-be.
This pair of panties needs to reflect the personality of the person gifting the panties to the bride.
At the shower, the bride will then try to guess which guest gifted her what pair of panties.
Tip: If you plan to play the Panty Game, be sure to send out instructions for the game with the invitations. This game does require guests to bring a specific pair of panties with them.
Lingerie Party Favors
Although providing party favors is not required for a bridal shower, they are a lovely gesture!
These simple gifts are a great way to thank your guests for attending the bridal shower.
You’ll want to select a party favor that the majority of your guests will love and enjoy.
Here are a couple of our favorite lingerie party favors:
Hair ties are always a great party favor! These Oh La La Scrunchies will match seamlessly with a lingerie shower!
