How to Throw a Lingerie Shower

How to Throw a Lingerie Shower

Lingerie showers are quickly gaining popularity as a more interesting and intimate option over the traditional bridal shower. Unlike the bridal shower, a lingerie shower offers the opportunity for close friends and family to spoil the bride with just that – lingerie! As she enters this new era of bride and wife, she needs the lingerie to go with it. For some brides, this may be their first time owning nice lingerie! So, rather than opening a new crockpot or hand towels, the bride can look forward to opening gifts of luxury, like ouvert panties, three-piece lingerie sets, bralettes, silk chemises, and more, all of which can be found in our 2024 Bridal Guide. Depending on your crowd, she may even receive some sexual wellness products. If you’re tasked with the responsibility of hosting a lingerie shower for the bride, Journelle makes it easy.

Decide Your Date & Time

Begin by coordinating with the bride-to-be to find a suitable date for the lingerie shower. Consider her schedule and the schedules of the guests. Once you've settled on a date, choose a theme that reflects the bride's personality and preferences. Whether it's vintage glamour, beachside chic, or cozy and romantic, a theme will help guide your decor and activities.

Organize Your Guest List

Work closely with the bride to create a guest list that includes her closest friends and family members. Keep in mind the size of where you will be hosting and the intimacy of the occasion when finalizing the guest list. If you’re looking for a space to accommodate your party and help host your lingerie shower, Journelle provides private events at our SoHo or Chicago store locations. The best part about hosting your lingerie shower at a Journelle store is that the booking fee and guest fees are given back in the form of a store credit, so you can host your shower and buy lingerie in one.

Consider using online invitation platforms for convenience or opt for beautifully designed paper invitations for a personal touch. Be sure to include the date, time, location, and any special instructions or requests, such as lingerie sizes or gift preferences.

If hosting at home or a venue, create an ambiance that reflects the chosen theme of the lingerie shower. Consider using soft lighting, delicate fabrics, and floral arrangements to set the mood. Decorate the space with accents such as feathers, pearls, and lace to enhance the romantic atmosphere. Keep guests entertained with fun and interactive activities that center around lingerie or making the bride feel special. We’ve created an easy, fun, and interactive game here to help break the ice. Don't forget to have plenty of photo opportunities to capture memories that will last a lifetime. Lastly, no party is complete without delicious food and drinks.

Encourage guests to wrap their lingerie gifts creatively, adding an extra element of excitement to the proceedings. As the bride opens each gift, have guests share why they chose their particular piece, adding a personal touch to the celebration. Designate a friend or hire a photographer to capture candid moments throughout the lingerie shower.
