Going to a bridal shower and don’t know what to prepare? Here’s some tips on choosing bridal shower love poems and quotes. You can also find some famous quotes on this page that you are free to use for yourself.
There are two things that I always prepare before going to bridal showers. One is my gift and the other is a lovely poem for the bride-to-be. Bridal showers are about making the bride-to-be feel loved, surrounded by lady friends who care about her. Gifts of all types are showered, but of course, most importantly, the bride-to-be would also appreciate the thoughts and wishes of the people close to her.
If you have already decided and bought a gift for your dear friend or family member who is about to get married but you still haven’t thought of a short wish, it’s probably time for you to consider some love poems and sayings intended for bridal showers.
“Friendship is…the sort of love one can imagine between angels.“
- C.S Lewis
Choose a Bridal Shower Poem Based on the Party Theme
If you find yourself having quite a difficult time pondering on what to write as a poem for the bride-to-be, check out the bridal shower invitation and find a phrase or a line that mentions the theme. For example, the host may have indicated that the pre-wedding party has a garden theme or a lingerie theme, so you may also want to make some bridal shower poems and quotes based on that. Remember, it doesn’t have to be serious and you can use an original idea if you want to.
Having a theme in mind can help when writing a poem, this will guide you on your message to the bride-to-be. One tip when writing down poems and quotes is to use some verses, rhymes and of course a little creativity with your words. Although you can find a lot of poems and quotes online, its a totally different story if the words are straight from you and based on your personal relationship with the bride-to-be. Think of the times you spent together and the happy memories you have.

Poems and Quotes of Love and Romance
Of course, poems about love and romance are a good choice for weddings – especially if the bride-to-be or the bridal shower host is planning to make the party a little formal, you may be asked by the host to give a reading of a love poem for the soon-to-be bride. You can always find the best love poems and quotes as well as romantic verses online though. To make your own, work on what you have. Sentimental love poems and quotes for brides can also be a good idea. If the party has a bridal shower poem game, then you don’t have to worry if you have come to the party prepared.
