The possibilities for the shower location are really boundless, but it does depend on your budget and your guest list. Most traditional showers are held at someone’s home, which is great (and free!), but it’s not the only option.
You could also see if a favorite restaurant has a private room or section-this is a good option if you want the atmosphere to be fun and informal. They’ll most likely either let you use the room for free with the purchase of a certain amount of food. Or, apartment communities often have a common room that they will rent out for a small fee, usually between $50-$100.
This is a good alternative because there’s usually plenty of space and it is often decorated beautifully. If you’ve got a larger budget, you can look into renting out a small event venue; this can go anywhere from $300 to $5,000. If you are renting at a nonpeak time, you will often receive a discount.
