A few days or weeks before a wedding event, the bride and groom will be asked by their closest friends to be present at a place. Then, when he arrives, he will be surprised by the atmosphere of the location which has been decorated in such a way and the appearance of his friends that is unique. After that, the friends will give him a challenge or a quiz relating to his relationship with the prospective groom or household in general for him to finish. If it fails, he must receive penalties such as lipstick streaks on the face. That's the bridal shower scheme that lately is widely accepted by a bride-to-be from her friends.

Most of them celebrate at the cafe, but not a few of them are willing to book a hotel room in Jakarta to hold the event - then continue to spend the night together. But, do you know how this bridal shower celebration began?

Based on World Bride Magazine article, the term bridal shower became popular in the United States at the end of the Victorian era. Not much different from today's celebrations, women from middle to the upper class of the period will hold a bridal shower party for their friends who are about to get married. Exchange of ideas about domestic life that will be lived by the bride while eating food is the agenda of the celebration. Then, friends of the bride and groom will put the gifts they have prepared in a paper umbrella, then "shower" the bride and groom with the gifts. This activity is known as a bridal shower — showering the bride and groom with gifts.

However, a different story about the bridal shower celebration came from mainland Europe, precisely in the Netherlands, in the early 16th. Once upon a time, a woman wanted to marry the man of her choice. However, the father did not approve and did not want to help him buy dowry and hold a marriage. At that time, women need to provide dowry as compensation for themselves which will later be a burden on the husband's dependents.

To realize the desire of the woman, her friends, and some family members together to buy dowry as well as household items. These items will later be handed over in the bridal shower celebration. Not only women who do not get the blessing of their fathers, but women with financially insufficient will also get dowry and household needs from their friends in this celebration.

That's the beginning of the real story of the bridal shower. Interesting, isn't it, knowing the background of one of the pre-wedding celebration that is now bustling by women for their bride-to-be friends?
