3 choice meal sounds delish! and I think it would be very weird to bring toilet paper (or other) to a party for a gift basket!

I would go with the choice of meal.  Those options honestly just sound better than a pasta/salad bar to me.  And I’d say pass on having the guests bring the necessities.  I feel the same way as your aunt and sister… I hate when they ask you to bring diapers + a gift at a baby shower.  And honestly, if you happen to get 50 bottles of Dawn from your 80 guests, what are you going to do with it all?! It’ll take over your whole house!

Honestly, I think it’s kind of weird. Are you really going to want to lug home dozens of rolls of toilet paper and paper towels? If I was invited to a shower with that request I would probably think that the couple had no business getting married if they needed their guests to supply them with “tushy tissue”. 

As for the food, either option sounds fine but if the 3 selections are cheaper and budget is a concern then go with those. FWIW, prizes don’t have to be anything crazy. I’ve hosted many showers where we gave out small potted plants or B&BW hand soaps. It’s a prize so not every guest will get one. Just those who win the games and your hosts can decide how many of those there will be.

I think it’s cute… But I’m not the best barometer. I like participating in things like that and unless it’s blatantly and outright offensive, I probably wouldn’t find it tacky. I would just read the invite, stop by the TP aisle at Target, and call it a day. I don’t think your closest friends and family will be scrutinizing your every move and weighing it for tackiness. I love bringing things to a party!

Half of the fun at bridal showers IS the games so I wouldn’t necessarily cut out those with prizes. As you mentioned it doesn’t take expensive prizes to appease the ladies, just something small will do.

I don’t know how I feel about bringing paper goods to the party. While I understand the whole diapers at a baby shower thing, how many rolls of TP and Paper Towels does one person really need? I find it a bit odd but would comply, of course, if it is what you wanted as the bride.
