"There is no remedy for love other than to love more."    Henry David Thoreau


The wedding shower originated with a Dutch maiden who fell in love with an impoverished miller. Her friends showered her and her groom with so many gifts that they could forego her missing dowry.

Showers traditionally occur from two months to two weeks before the wedding, and can be anything from an informal luncheon, to a buffet dinner at an elegant restaurant.

The get together known as the stag and doe, or bachelor/bachelorette party has become a celebration of the end of being single. It usually consists of the immediate wedding party and very close friends of the bride and groom. The best man or maid of honour is usually in charge of coordinating the event.

This event should be a fun and memorable evening and should be suited to the style and personality of the couple.
