Here comes the Bride! Or rather, the bride-to-be. Bridal showers are a primarily Western world tradition where a woman is “showered” with gifts to celebrate her soon-to-be married life. Often times, the event is filled with fun and games and is hosted by the bride’s maid of honor. Many of the gifts are purchased from a preselected registry made by the bride and groom. This helps ensure that the gifts they receive are just what they need to help transition into their new life together. The most popular shower gifts are kitchen items and china, signifying the tradition of a husband and wife joining into one home.
