Bridal Showers at Nia

Host a Bridal Shower at NiaBridal Shower

Someone that you care about is about to make the plunge. You want to throw a bridal shower for them but you’re unsure of where or how to begin. Whether those bells are for you, a good friend, or a relative, one of the fun lead-up events to a wedding is the bridal shower.

For the bride-to-be, a bridal shower isn’t just a party, it’s a day she will remember forever. That said, the event doesn’t have to be over-the-top or overly expensive to be special. Instead, get creative. Tapas at Nia is a great way to do that! A tapas style luncheon or dinner allows your family and friends the opportunity to get to know one another before the main event. Served family style, tapas promote interaction and conversation among your guests. If she’s a party girl, plan a “cocktail hour shower” with girlfriends, martinis, and passed appetizers or appetizer stations. Tapas is a perfect solution for either type of bridal shower.

Just because you’ve been deemed shower hostess doesn’t mean you have to do everything yourself. Let Nia help you with all of the little details from decorations to music. Conveniently located in the heart of Chicago’s “Restaurant Row” Nia is easily accessible from the loop, by public transportation and the expressway making one less thing for you and your guests to worry about. Get ready to relax, share food, laughs and good company in a memorable setting at Nia.

    • Bachelorette Party at Nia

      Bachelorette party

      Wedding season is here! Now get ready for billowing white tulle, open declarations of love and lets not forget the best of all, bachelorette parties. So if your Best Friend Forever will be tying the knot soon, see her off with something classy, definitely not trashy.

      Where to begin? Our suggestion: throw out any and all ideas involving strippers, rubber penises, Life Saver t-shirts, and scavenger hunts involving the acquisition of men’s underwear. No good can come of these things. You want the bride-to-be to have a night to remember, fondly

      Don’t schedule the party too far in front of the big day, but don’t wait until the last minute, either.  a good time frame is anywhere from six weeks to a month before the wedding. A bachelorette party scheduled too early can feel anticlimactic, whereas one scheduled right before a wedding can bump up against the bride’s nerves, and might interfere with pre-wedding dieting or exercise. (We are not endorsing bridal boot camp or any crazy weight loss practice that has its own show on E, but you know we all know people that do the whole pre-wedding diet thing often, so it would be wrong to pretend it didn’t happen.) And forget the whole night-before-the-wedding thing. Nothing worse than being hung over on a day you know you’ll spend being stared at by people and photographed.

      Be sensitive to other people’s budgetary constraints, and don’t make the bride pay for anything. According to the Knot, while it’s customary that a host pays for a bridal shower, the attendees pay for the bachelorette party themselves — and the bride doesn’t pay for anything. If you are the one organizing, the event, do make sure attendees know this, and of course be sensitive to what they can afford in order to avoid any type of embarrassment or hurt one’s feelings. A wedding party consisting of mostly 24-year-old recent college graduates with roommates aren’t going to be able to afford to spend the same kind of money as a group of 32-year-olds with professional degrees and condos. And don’t force anyone to be there — the wedding party is already expending considerable time and cost to help the bride celebrate, and costs can really add up.

      The bachelorette party is supposed to be a time for the bride to hang out and relax with her girl friends, and unless the bride specifically requests that the theme for her party be An Evening of Cocks (because some ladies really love that stuff, and more power to ’em), try something different. Instead, get creative. Tapas at Nia is a great way to do that! A tapas style luncheon or dinner allows th bride and her friends the hang out before the main event.  If she’s a party girl, plan a “cocktail party” with girlfriends, martinis, and passed appetizers or appetizer stations. Tapas is a perfect solution for either type of party. And if strippers are a must, our private dining room is completely private and has a seperate entrance.
