Wait, so you can plan a fun bridal shower centered around… lemons? You bet! A bridal shower with lemon theme is fun, on-trend, and is perfect for spring and summer. Why do people love lemon themed showers so much? That’s easy: lemons are delicious, lemonade means summer, and a poppy color palette of bright yellow makes everyone happy! :) And really, lemons look so lovely as-is and really add to the decor of your space.
And remember, troubles drop like lemon drops when this theme is involved. :)
It is super-easy to plan with these fun, creative lemon bridal shower ideas we found for you including but not limited to: lemon bridal shower invitations, decorations, party favors, bridal shower games with lemon theme, prizes for guests after said games, guest book ideas, and more.
Let’s get this party started!
Lemon Bridal Shower
First things first: pick a date! Lemon bridal shower ideas typically follow suit with spring and summertime, so choosing a month during these seasons is the best time to host a lemon bridal shower.
After choosing a date, pick a location. Where do you envision hosting the shower?
Where to Host a Lemon Wedding Shower
The festivities can take place anywhere!
Popular venues include:
• your home
• a banquet hall
• a garden / outdoor space, weather permitting
• the bride’s favorite restaurant
• a tea room or cafe that offers event space (lemon goes great with tea and scones!)
The bridal shower will typically take place on a Saturday or Sunday as a luncheon from 12-3 pm or 1-4 pm.
Once you find the perfect location, book it!
Wow, you’re doing great. Are you a lemon bridal shower expert? :)
Next: you’ll want to create a guest list and send invitations.
From there, we’ll move on to decorations, food, favors, and more to make this a pretty, perfectly-squeezed lemon bridal shower.
Lemon Bridal Shower Invitations
Send lemon bridal shower invitations to guests approximately four to six weeks before the event. This will set the tone, color palette, and theme of your wedding right off the bat, making planning the rest of the details extremely easy.
Look for bright colors of (obviously) yellow, paired with green.
You can go with a lemon bridal shower motto, such as: “She Found Her Main Squeeze” or “Love Is Sweet”. Or just go with lemons.
Citrus Greens Invitation
These stylish lemon bridal shower invitations are by Susan Moyal and look absolutely beautiful, especially when assembled with the yellow striped envelope liner, the front-printed lemon envelopes, and the pretty lemon backing (optional). These are for Minted, so as a bonus, you can get free envelope addressing done with your order, which will make everything look so beautiful! See it here.

Have Guests Fill Out Lemon Recipe Cards
Include these recipe cards in the invitations when you mail them out. Ask guests to fill them out and bring them to the shower with their favorite recipe written on the card.
