Before we share ideas for the wedding shower, we would like to throw some light on how the concept actually evolved. The tradition originated before the 1900s, inspired from the dowry rituals. A bride was given gifts by her friends to offer as a dowry to the groom, if the family of the bride was poor and could not afford to give a dowry. Also, if the father of the bride disapproved of the marriage then the friends of the bride stepped forward.
