    I enjoy them when I am close with the bride! If it’s some random invite I don’t go and just send a gift because I know I won’t enjoy myself!

    That’s an interesting question! I always go if I can, but I never thought about whether I enjoyed it or not. 😉 I guess I enjoy them more if I know a lot of the bride’s other friends?

    i like them if i know the bride, we don’t play silly games, and opening presents doesn’t take a bazillion years.

    i’m going to keep that in mind when I have my shower…. hopefully the hostess will ask me what i would like at that party. 🙂

    I hate them! Maybe I wouldn’t if I went to more with my friends – but I’m the first of my friends to get engaged. So thus far it’s been family, family friends, etc. And I hate the games. So much. They need to die.

    I love showers!  I guess I am just a huge nerd that thinks the games are fun.  I know lots of other people don’t like those sorts of things but I guess I just find it fun.  Bridal AND baby showers.

    Except that stupid clothespin game.  That one drives me crazy!

    No- but they aren’t as bad as baby showers!

    part of the reason I am eloping and then having an at-home reception is so no one can throw me a shower!

    No i think they’re verrry boring.  And I really hate the games that sometimes you have to play.

    I enjoy them, but sometimes I think they can be very boring for guests. I think it is a good idea to do like a gift bingo or something while the bride is opening her gifts, so that way the guests stay interested. Sometimes the couple drags out the gift opening sooooo much though… But I do hate when there are a million different games. I think limiting it to like two MAYBE three is plenty.
