How to Throw a Lingerie Shower

Are you tasked with throwing a lingerie shower for the bride-to-be? Here is all the info you will need to throw a great one!

What is a Lingerie Shower?

First, you need to know what a lingerie shower is! In the most basic sense, it's a party where guests shower the bride with gifts of Bridal lingerie. It's sexier than a bridal shower and is usually held in one location, unlike many bachelorette parties. (In fact, many bachelorette party festivities include a lingerie shower component!) A lingerie shower can be as classy or sexy as you'd like--just make sure the attendees are all on the same page!


Pick a Venue

Many Lingerie showers are held at people homes.  This can be a great money saving option!  If a private home is not available, a party room at a restaurant will work great also.  Pick one of the Brides favorite restaurants and order her favorite appetizers for snacking.

Invite Guests

Whether they're paper invites or an evite, make sure you let guests know it's a lingerie party, and to bring a gift for the bride-to-be. Ask the bride for her bra and underwear size in advance and include the sizes in the invitation. That way all of the guests will get something that actually fits her! If you have a specific type of gift, you'd like them to bring (whether it's themed or related to a game you're playing), let them know!

Get the Bride a Gift

You sent out the invites, now you've got to get a gift for the Bride yourself! Get a couple cute panties and a fun bedroom game, make sure it's something that the bride (or groom!) will love. The goal is to stock her lingerie wardrobe for the honeymoon and the newlywed life. If the bride-to-be is sassy, you can even include some more risque items like gummy undies for the groom to wear! Don't forget to put it all in a package the bride will love to unwrap...


Bachelorette Party Gifts for the Bride

Plan some Lingerie Party Games

A lingerie shower is centered around the gifts, but the lingerie party gifts themselves can be a game! Try one or more of these lingerie shower ideas to spice up your party:

  • Have each guest bring an unwrapped pair of underwear that showcases their personality as their gift. Have the bride-to-be pull out each underwear from a box or a bag and guess who gave it to her and why. A the end of the game, she gets to keep all of the underwear!
  • Play "Lingerie Shower Bingo." Create a Bingo sheet with words like "Cute," "Sexy," the fiancé's name, "honeymoon," "wedding," "newlywed," and other phrases commonly used in your friend group. As they're said throughout the party, guests can mark it off on their sheet. The first to get a BINGO wins a prize!
  • Take a break from opening gifts and test the bride's knowledge of her groom! Ask the groom the questions on this groom quiz game in advance, and then quiz the bride during the party. Does she know how he'll answer?

Prepare the Menu

Have some small treats and drinks available for guests. We suggest champagne and easy finger food. Think small quiches, fruit and veggie trays, and mini cupcakes. Want to go a bit raunchier? Top the cupcakes with mini pecker sprinkles.


Pick a color or theme and add some basic decorations to the home or party room! Go as simple as themed tableware (plates, cups, napkins), or decorate the entryway and create photo backdrop wall. Drape feather boas around other chairs for a sexy vibe that doubles as a fun party favorWe love photo backdrop wall and photo props to encourage lots of group shots!  The Bride will love looking at these photos long after the party is over.

Lingerie Shower Supplies

Outfit The Bride

The Bride will be the center of attention, so make sure she looks the part! Pick out a satin Bridal sash that complements her outfit and a matching Bride headband. She can re-use the items for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and the rehearsal dinner!


Once the party begins, try to relax and enjoy yourself! Assign someone the task of writing down who gives what lingerie party gifts to the bride so she can enjoy herself and write Thank You notes after the party!
