Now I know you’re thinking, “What the heck is a lingerie shower?!” It’s a southern tradition to send the lucky bride into married life with a  trousseau of beautiful lingerie. Similar to a baby shower, all of the girls get together for some nibbles, a few fun games and a delicious cocktail or two. The bride-to-be is showered with some classy, and maybe a few naughty, gifts. More recently, the lingerie shower will be on the day of the hen’s night, giving family and older friends an opportunity to celebrate the bride as she heads into married life. Such a fun tradition!
