She said it’s supposed to be fun, but I don’t understand the point of it. Has anyone ever had to do this? Also, I’m supposed to come up with a poem to put on the shower invitation telling everyone to wear old bridesmaid dresses. Does anyone know of any poems I could use?

hmm. have you asked her what someone should wear if they havent been a bridesmaid or do not have an old bridesmaid dress still around? i’ve never heard of that kind of theme. i figure just a glam shower (aka wear fancy dresses) would be easier. unfortunately i’m terrible when it come to poetry. i would just rhyme lines.
best of luck!

FSIL had an ugly bridesmaids dress party, but I do not think that’s what your friend is going for. lol/ Def talk to her about the pp’s (very valid) points!

It’s time to celebrate X’s special day,
so come and celebrate in a most festive way,
dig into your closet and grab your best bridesmaid frock,
‘cos a-showering we will be, so get ready to rock!

Yeah, youd definitely need to clarify whether she’s looking for a fancy dress party or an ugly bridesmaid’s dress party. If people get mixed messages that could be a bad scene. Especially if she has a close circle of friends and the person who chose said bad bridesmaid dress is in attendance.

I think “bad bridesmaids dress” theme would be awesome and way better than “where a respectable beautiful bridesmaids dress”. I can see people having a lot of fun in thrift stores trying to find the most hideous ones.

Ms. Meowerson – LOVE the poem!!
I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on. I think it’s supposed to be an ugly bridesmaid dress, and I think there’s going to be some kind of game. She doesn’t really say many details. I guess I’ll find out in a couple of months when we have her shower.
