All my bridesmaids (4 people) are spending the night at my parents house the night before the wedding because:
A) My parents house is literally within walking distance of our ceremony/reception
B) 2 of my bridesmaids are driving hours to be with us for the rehearsal and needed a place to stay anyways
C)I didn’t have a bachelorette part, so this is kinda going to be that.
What do you guys think we should do? Any fun wedding related games you would recommend? I’m looking for games that aren’t drinking games because I’m wanting to make sure my sister feels included (she’s 16 and we’re all 21-22), and we’re not big drinkers anyway.

@MiraJo: Will/did you have a bridal shower? I’m thinking of bridal shower games. You know, games like “how well do you know the couple?” for your girl friends and “how well do you know your fiance?” for you. And then of course, the toilet paper bride contest, and the like. Those kinds of things!

this really is a game that the Maid/Matron of Honor should be doing but maybe you can make it work.
put a large piece of paper on the ground. then everyone stands in a circle around the paper.
you can’t move your feet but have to write things on the paper about the bride. the leader of the game writes down what the girls say outloud. then after 5ish minutes. the leader will say:
ok, here are the things that bride will say on her wedding night.
ie. that’s crooked
or you could ask each of the girls to bring a new pair of undies(the bride’s size) that define their personality. the undies are all hung up and the bride has to guess who brought them. then the bride gets to keep all the new underwear.

@pengoala: No I didn’t have a shower of any sort. It wasn’t super important to me and my Maid/Matron of Honor is a very busy girl so I told her not to worry about it.
What’s to toilet paper bride contest? That sounds interesting….
@ajillity81: The undies sound like a cool idea, but I’m worried it would be awkward for just 4 people lol

@MiraJo: *Any* shower game with only 4 people might be kind of lame :-/ Why not just do what you’d typically do with your friends staying over? Cards Against Humanity is a really fun game, or you guys could kick it old school and play Truth or Dare.
I’d get some popcorn, or maybe some wines and cheeses. Bed Bath and Beyond has little fondue pots that are pretty cheap. Like horror movies? Those are always fun at a sleepover.
I think you’ll have an easier time thinking up stuff to do if you focus less on it being “wedding-related” 🙂

@badabing88: Yea probably. Heck the girls are going to be spending a good part of the day helping me decorate the venue, so maybe I should give them a break from wedding related activities lol
