Ellie Morgan of Chattanooga, Tennessee had her wedding shower set until the pandemic hit. She had to be resourceful when coming up with ways to keep the festivities going.

Rather than canceling this traditional event, her bridal party threw her a drive-through shower. Guests drove up to her driveway and, while keeping a 6 ft. distance, gave Morgan bridal shower gifts.

“They would just drive up and hand us our gift out of their window,” laughed Morgan. “We would open the gift in front of them, take a quick picture beside their car, hand them a cookie and a squirt of sanitizer and send them on their way!”

Morgan states that the best part of her drive through wedding shower was getting to seen her family and friends again, even at a distance.


So there are still ways to pull it off! A drive through bridal shower is just one way to still have an amazing event in the mists of everything. It proves that no matter what, love will prevail!
