So I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor for my sister’s wedding, and we are hosting a JOINT bridal shower for “A.” and my OTHER older sister “N.” “N” just had her baby in March, and “A” is getting married in June, and since we have relatives traveling in for the shower, and “N” couldn’t travel over the winter before baby was born, we decided to do a joint shower.
Now, they are both very excited for it, but I’m having trouble planning it. Would you guys integrate games? How do I make them both feel like they are the center of attention? Any ideas??? HELP!

Yikes, that sounds rough! I think it’s awesome that both girls were willing to share the lime-light, but that will definitely make it hard for you to plan! And you don’t want one girl to be more the center of attention than the other!
Maybe it would be helpful if you had bride-specific games and also baby-specific games, and so that when you play one game, the bride-to-be will be the center of attention, and then when you play another game, the new mom will be the center of attention. I’m not really sure how it would work to try to have them both be the center of attention at all times.
Also, when you do gifts, maybe have them take turns, like have A open a gift, then have N open a gift, and vice-versa. Definitely don’t have them open gifts at the same time because then the attention is torn, and you don’t want one getting more attention than the other.
