Did You Know?

The bridal shower was an age old tradition that is practiced by many cultures across the world. In India too there is a bridal ceremony exclusively for the bride where the elderly women folk come and bless the bride. The more popular Bridal Shower as we know today, is popularized by the American middle class of the 1930’s, where friends and family of the bride used to visit the bride and shower her with gifts and money, mostly in order to pool in and support the wedding and share the burden of costs with the bride’s family. Bridal shower basically originated from the medieval dowry practices and cultures across the globe have always had such a ceremony with local iterations. But the crux has always been to support the bride’s family through community pooling of resources for the wedding. Britain had its own iteration called the Bride Ale, where the bride made beer a day before her wedding and sold it for a very high price to the guests. With changing times and more economic stability, the practice of community support has diminished, but the tradition still continues. Whatever the reason is, it’s always good to have a great time with the girl gang, and as the bridal shower is the last all-girl get together before you wed only makes the party even more special.
