So, your man proposed, you said ‘yes’ (with tears running down your face but, like, elegantly), had your wedding photoshoot, and it’s time to throw a bridal shower party. The question would be… where?
Although the responsibility of planning a bridal shower should fall to your bridesmaids, it doesn’t hurt to drop a few hints about where you’d like to go. While on a hunt for unique venues around Klang Valley, we came across several beautiful places which have the potential to hold a picture perfect, intimate bridal shower.
Here’s a list of eight venues that not only serve delicious food, but are also suitable for a bridal shower, in no particular order:
1. Bo All Day Dining, The LINC KL
Bo All Day Dining is a diner hidden in the heart of Kuala Lumpur (KL), offering excellent hospitality and a wide variety of delicious dishes in a gorgeous tropical garden setting. The decor screams old-school glamour without being overly pretentious, with a design concept heavily inspired by Malaysia’s rainforest. You and your bridal team can channel your inner ‘Audrey Hepburn’, dress up, and be seen here.
It’s not hard to decide what to eat here because the menu is kept focused and consistent. However, if you still require recommendations, try the 10” artisanal wood-fired oven pizzas and Bo’s Signature Rotisserie Roast. Reservation is highly advisable as the restaurant usually gets packed with the brunch crowd.
