While a bridal shower traditionally is thought to be the perfect time to immerse the bride and her closest friends and family members in feminine fun, if the bride likes outdoor activities then a camping bridal shower theme would be  a great idea.

Bridal showers have come a long way since days of old when bridal showers were viewed primarily as a vehicle for the bride-to-be to receive gifts to help provide a dowry for her if her family was unable to do so, or just to give her a good start with household items since housekeeping was the main role of the wife in those times.

As the role of women and wives has evolved so has the purpose of bridal showers.  Today, bridal showers have morphed into a rather festive way for the bride’s female family and friends to grab some girl time before the Big Day, often embracing  specific unforgettable and unique bridal shower themesfrom lingerie parties to cooking classes together, or a sophisticated high tea, a swanky champagne brunch, a casual and hilarious afternoon get-together, and even  movie-star-themed bridal showers.  Another great bridal shower theme would be a celebration of  ‘The City of Love’ – Paris, as we featured in 22 chic Parisian-themed bridal shower ideas

Here are 4 creative outdoor bridal shower themes, reblogged from the knot:

Four creative outdoor shower themes tailor made for every type of bride—plus the registry picks to help pull them off.

By Sarah Newell

The bridal shower is one of the first events leading up to the wedding where guests will get a sense of your style. To make sure it’s a really personal day that reflects your tastes, we dreamed up four different themes for four very different types of brides—and included Macy’s wedding registry items and fashion ideas that’ll help you pull them off. Find the one that speaks to you below, then share it with your bridal party to give them a hint at the type of shower you want.

  1. 1. The VIP Bride: Parisian-Themed Brunch

    VIP Outdoor Bridal Shower Theme

    For the bride-to-be who always makes a (very glamorous) statement when it comes to what you wear and how you entertain, you can’t go wrong with a sophisticated garden brunch with a chic French accent.

    The Details

    Think: A delicious spread of pastries, scones and quiche laid out on long tables set with gold-rimmed fine china and coordinating gold flatware—and a bubbly bar (yes!). Whether you splurge on real champagne or go for more affordable sparkling wine, just keep the bottles on ice along with decanters of different juices so guests can mix up their favorite concoction. And you’ll want to keep your coffeemaker brewing a delicious French roast to serve with all of those yummy pastries. For favors, colorful macarons make the perfect sweet ending.

    What to Wear

    Instead of an all-white ensemble, a graphic black floral print dress fits your glam vibe. And your look wouldn’t be complete without diamond studs.

  2. 2. The Freestyle Bride: Craft Beer Tasting Shower

    Free Style Outdoor Bridal Shower Theme

    If your tastes lean more boho and eclectic, you’ll definitely want a more laid-back shower that caters to that artisan spirit. A craft beer tasting held in your honor is right up your alley—especially if the brews are local.

    The Details

    To give the backyard a rustic feel, decorate the tables with lots of mixed metal and wood accents and vintage-style touches—nothing too matchy-matchy. When it comes to the beer, pick a variety of beers from local breweries to make sure there’s something for everyone, then keep them over ice in a galvanized party tub. And don’t forget the food: A buffet of cured meats and artisanal cheeses lets guests graze while they taste the beers. Cap things off with a homemade waffle bar set with toppings like fresh fruit, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and powdered sugar for a totally customizable dessert. A fun photo booth equipped with a variety of props and a selfie stick lets guests commemorate the evening. Send them home with custom-labeled beers as favors.

    What to Wear

    A flowy, polka-dot jumpsuit channels your bohemian spirit while still looking dressy and special enough for the occasion. Pair it with wedges and your signature mix of jewelry.

  3. 3. The Style Setter Bride: South Beach–Inspired Pool Party

    Style Setter Outdoor Bridal Shower Theme

    This bride-to-be’s always ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest trends, with a style that skews modern. You’ll want to celebrate with a stylish Jack-and-Jill poolside fete that includes the boys.

    The Details

    To set that slick South Beach tone, stick with a black-and-white palette with a few vibrant pops of color and make sure you have a DJ (or playlist) ready with all the latest summer hits. A bright croquet set—a retro throwback that’s cool again—will be irresistible for guests, whether they’re actually playing a game or just using them as photo props. For the menu, chips and salsa, fish tacos, fresh salads and coconut shrimp skewers are fitting for a by-the-water party. And don’t forget the frozen cocktails: Keep the margaritas or pina coladas coming with your trusty blender. And for dessert? Ice cream and spiked ice pops.

    What to Wear

    A black-and-white mixed media sheath is totally on trend—and perfect for a little poolside dancing.

  4. 4. The Girl Next Door Bride: Backyard Barbecue Shower

    Girl Next Door Outdoor Bridal Shower Theme

    For the bride who embraces tradition—but is by no means old-fashioned—you’ll want a twist on a classic shower with lots of thoughtful, personal touches. Why not throw a casual barbecue featuring favorite family recipes?

    The Details

    Grandma’s famous pulled pork (cooked up in the slow cooker) can be the centerpiece of the afternoon meal, with a make-your-own sandwich station. A range of salads and grilled veggies helps round out the menu. To drink: Sweet tea served in a fun mason jar–style punch bowl—plus some bourbon to spike the drinks. You’ll want to dress the tables with bold, colorful dishware that sets the preppy tone. Instead of focusing on just one dessert, why not have the family bake all of the bride’s favorites? (Another way to personalize the day? Ask guests in advance to bring their favorite recipe card that you can put in a book for her.) Then send the bride off with a sentimental finale like a slideshow playing highlights from her life, from childhood on through her relationship with her spouse-to-be.

    What to Wear

    A classic white shirtdress gets an extra-feminine touch when it’s made of eyelet lace. Finish the look with gold wedges and a sweet accent like a gold initial pendant.
