A bridal shower prayer has been a part of the pre wedding experience for quite some time. This tradition has been losing it’s popularity in recent times. It is important to remember that a wedding is a spiritual connection and prayer is a positive thing to implement in pre wedding events.
Respectively, the prayer should take place before the meal. The hostess of the bridal shower usually gives the prayer. If there is someone more comfortable with saying the prayer, then they should say it. For example, if the mother of the bride-to-be wants to say the prayer, she is more than welcome.
