We don’t have bridal showers where I am from. We have a kitchen tea (a non gift giving event) which sometimes has games (but some don’t) but mostly its a bit of bubbly and some finger food and lots of laughter and chatting.

Other ideas- you could have a garden party or a morning tea. Could you go wine tasting?

Honestly I know OCD can be hard but I think on this occassion you need to suck it up (for lack of better words) because it would be rude to have a get together and not at least offer some light refreshment.

Good luck

How about having just a bridal tea instead? Without all the games?

I’m not sure about the food part – but you can totally skip the games. My mother and I HATE them~!! We’re not doing any.

You don’t have to have a shower… you can turn it into a pre-wedding celebration.  That way it’s hinted that there are no gifts (since showers typically can be a gift giving event).  Also as far as food, have some snack type items and some punch and you don’t even have to eat (you can mingle and keep a drink in your hand).
