                I’m definitely not a bride who love attention on herself. I am definitely commenting to follow. I guess the bride could introduce everyone to each other, say maybe something about each person (an interest they may have that they know another person in the wedding party has so that way they can find something to talk about) Maybe some of the bridesmaids are outgoing and can just make good conversation on their own. I’m usually the type of person that if I don’t know someone, if its a smaller group of people I’ll just ask them questions myself maybe about their job or family or even how they know each other.  Another idea could be put some questions in a glass and pull them out one by one and have everyone answer the questions? When my bachelorette happens I’ll do my best to make everyone as comfortable as possible.

@mscuppycake:  How many people will be at the dinner? If it’s not too big, the bride could send out an email with a quick blurb on everyone and how she knows them?A friend of mine did that before her bachelorette, but there were only 9 of us.

OR you could ask everyone a “fun fact” about themselves, type them all up and put them in a bowl and have people guess what everyone’s “fun fact” is?

What about a little “guess how many _____ are in the jar” type game?  Have everyone write down their guesses.  Could be lollies, M&M’s…whatever.  You could even do a lolly one and a chocolate one so you have two winners.

The “guess the baby photo” is always a cute one too.  Gets people looking at each other and talking!!  Have them send their photos ahead of time and maybe just print them as small squares on an A4 paper that people can then tick off themselves – or pass to the person on their right as you let them know the results!

I’d probably take something along that people could sign or write a little message onto.  Maybe a white vase or something a bit different?  Would be a cute keepsake for the bride.

Not sure how casual your meal is but some colourful paper and glittery pens usually go down a treat for people to have a scribble on!

Any ideas for a bride who doesn’t want too much public attention?


Seriously, that sounds like me… And, I def would not have wanted any games at dinner. I just wanted to relax and have flowing conversation…. The people I cared about, some delicious food and tons of vino! Anyone can have a good time with those things alone. : )

There was one game I heard called two truths and a lie. Each person has to say two true things about themselves and one lie and the rest have to guess which one is the lie. It works when people don’t know each other well and can be a fun ice breaker.
Also, never have I ever, which is more of a drinking game (although what can’t be turned into a drinking game?) If you’ve never played it basically each person says “Never have I ever ___” Whatever they haven’t done. If you have done that whatever it is you take a drink. (Never have I ever kissed someone on a dare! Never have I ever been drunk in public! They can get much worse, it could turn too embarassing) Or you could just do old fashioned (or not so old fashioned) card games. You could do charades, pictionary. My friends and I have a lot of fun with “cards against humanity”.

I second “2truths” and “never have I ever”. Both are great for getting to know people and can be played while eating. If you aren’t drinkers you could play never have I by giving everyone ten Hershey’s kisses (or whatever candy) and have them throw one in a vase when they have done the thing. Whoever has the most candy left at the end if the game (therefore the most innocent person) gets the vase filled with candy.

2 truths is great – i actually played it with some of my students yesterday and they loved it. You could also do a drinking game, like every time the bridensays wedding, married, fiance’s name, you all have to take a sip. That works best if you don’t tell her to begin with.
