It’ll be similar to a baby shower… open gifts, play some games, and have some snacks.  I’d wear a cute dress or skirt and be ready for some photos.  It sounds like you may be getting a lingerie shower.  Most showers I’ve been to the bride to be gets things off her registery like linens, kitchen ware and such.  Typically you’ll get at least 1 or 2 lingerie items… but you may get more!  Just enjoy the day!  Hope you have a great party!

And you usually get gifts both at the shower and then at the wedding. So think of it as a bonus gift – not a replacement gift!

Yes, definitely dress up – and don’t feel too overdressed; you are the bride – you should be the best dressed 🙂

Be prepared to open all sorts of lingerie in front of the guests and ooh and ahh even if it’s not your style 🙂

There will be food and likely a game or two… and don’t forget to say a public thank you to your Future Mother-In-Law and the guests in attendance.  You might also want to bring Future Mother-In-Law a gift as a thank you for throwing the shower.

Yeah, you’ll get gifts at the shower and at the wedding… so that always helps fill your home!  My shower is in a month so I’m looking forward to a day of being showered with my favorite ladies, silly games, and lovely gifts.  It’s a great time before the wedding to see everyone and have some girl time!

My mom is sponsoring mine.. it’s next weekend.

We are having it at 1pm and serving lunch.  We have three very fun games planned.  One is bridal bingo, which is standard, the other is the toilet paper dress game.  You give each table 3 rolls of TP, and 20 minutes.  They select a model from their table, then create a wedding dress on them with the TP.  Then the bride gets to judge the winner.  The third is the memory game.. where you have items on a tray, and you try to remember what they are.. but my mom has thrown in a twist.. while they are busy memorizing whats on the tray, she’ll be asking questions about what I was wearing!  Sneaky.. Anyways, after that, we have cake and open presents.

I’m wearing a wrap dress, flats and a cardigan. But that’s just me 🙂
