  • I am in the middle of planning a Bridal Shower for my sister. I would start off with a guest list and invitations and gather everyone's addresses. If the Shower is further away go to a party store and start to price out all the items you will be needing as far as decorations, plates,utensils etc. Then make a list of the food you will be serving. If money is a problem, I would start to buy things little at a time instead all at once so that way your not breaking the bank..Figure out how many games you want to play at the shower and for example if your playing 3 games, get 3 little prizes either from the dollar store or even Big Lots has really nice things that are not expensive. Good Luck!

  • Maybe you could have a fun, party planning party...Get a few girlfriends together for a pot-luck of sorts only, instead of bringing food, everyone can bring decorations, door prizes etc. Then you can decorate and set the party up together. This can be a fun way to make the party nice and spread out the cost. Pick a theme first so that everything coordinates. With everyone contributing ideas it should be a great party. You can still ask the guests that did not participate in the planning to bring a pot-luck dish to the party too.
