Bridal showers can be awful and awkward. We've talked about all the ways to avoid the awfulness. Bridal showers can also be wibbly wobbly and timey wimey if you steal this Doctor Who bridal shower idea from Tribesmaid Charlieheart.

Check out some of the Whovian party details, with TARDIS blue accents, Dalek centerpieces, and an appearance by a weeping angel (of course)…

Decorate with TARDIS blue table clothes and brightly colored hanging pom-poms.

Decorate the tables with golden stars, and space-y starbursts, with centerpieces made from champagne, flowers, a TARDIS…

…and plush Daleks.

TARDIS string lights are a must-have.

Of course the lights guide the way to the yummy snacks, accented by the TARDIS Teapot.

Finally, remember to bring awesome props like this Weeping Angel mask.

  1. I am torn between blurting "Rose, you are FANTASTIC." and "ALLONS-Y!"

    ….I need help. I NEED A DOCTOR.

  2. This is so cool!
    We had a sci-fi/fantasy/geek themed shower just about a week ago, and I modified a TARDIS blue dress to look….well, a little more TARDIS-ish. We encouraged people to dress up and had a costume contest. My mom, who hosted the party, also made a geek trivia game. It was a couple's shower, so it was more like a backyard hangout than it was a traditional bridal shower. My uncle dressed as Stan Lee, and my fiancee had wolverine claws…and grandma didn't even bat a lash. We had a blast!
    I'd love to see more shower stuff like this!
