26 Sweet Songs to Play at Your Bridal Shower

These tunes make for the perfect soundtrack to your pre-wedding event.

Your bridal shower usually consists of a relaxing afternoon with your closest female relatives and friends. Fun, low-key games with light snacks rule the day – at least until it’s time to open gifts. All parties need music, but you want the soundtrack of your day to match the atmosphere of the event.

While in theory, putting on commercial-free streaming radio seems like all that’s needed, using a playlist curated specifically for an event means only appropriate songs will be included. This is not just in reference to songs that are explicit, but rather music with content that does not fit the occasion. Club music or punk rock is more than likely to sound out of place, and a somber breakup song could really kill the mood!
