Just smile and say thank you! You won’t be as awkward as you think!

shorebride105:  You sound just like me! My shower was this past weekend and I was so nervous about this, because I’m awkward and I didn’t want to come off as being a weirdo or ungrateful. I was pretty much slamming sangria once the shower started and my Maid/Matron of Honor knew to keep my glass full lol. It was all a whirlwind, but I just made a point to say thank you and hug everyone individually after opening their gift. My mom said I did great haha.

I am glad that I am not the only one who has this worry. One of my family friends showed me this bridal shower bingo game that she had enjoyed at a shower she attended. Guest get a blank bingo card and fill in each square with gifts they think you might recieve and attempt to get a bingo as they mark off squares as you open gifts. I am thinking of having my Maid/Matron of Honor have this game for the guest to play so people will also be focused on their Bingo cards.
