Ferncroft Country Club, Middleton MA - Bridal Shower Photos

A bridal shower is a gift-giving party held for a bride-to-be in anticipation of her wedding. The custom originated in the 1890s and is today most common in the United StatesCanadaAustralia and New Zealand.

The history of the custom is rooted not necessarily for the provision of goods for the upcoming matrimonial home, but to provide goods and financial assistance to ensure the wedding may take place.

Men are typically not allowed at these functions. But recently more men have been attending. - Wikipedia
