The bridal shower is a party thats hosted by your BM’s, a family friend, co-worker, etc that everyone comes to to "shower" you with gifts.  You can do a theme party (kitchen, round the clock, etc) or just have people get together and eat lunch and open gifts, play games, etc.  Anyone invited to the shower needs to be invited to the wedding.  You can do women only or a co-ed shower.  You can do games at the shower that are traditional (toilet paper bride) or you can do stuff that isnt as traditional like bridal bingo, a crossword puzzle about the bride and groom, or theme related games.  If you do games, make sure your hosts have gifts for the people that win.

An engagement party is just something where your family and friends get to gether to celebrate your engagements.  Gifts are not necessary.

The bachelorette party is anytime before the wedding, mine is 1 week before, where you and your girlfriends go out and party 🙂  You can do a traditional bachelorette party or something low key, just dinner and hanging out.  I dont know that games are usually played at a bachelorette party, it just depends on what you want to do.  I am doing dinner then a slumber party so we will be playing games, but stuff like Girl Talk, Mall Madness, etc.

Id definetly recommend Mindy Weiss’ book, "The Wedding Book".  It has anything and everything you want to know about weddings, parties leading up to, registering, etiquettte and more!  Its only $20 at the bookstore and its huge!  Good luck with everything and have fun!

Oh I forgot, usually the bridal shower is 1-2 months before the wedding.  Make sure you are registered before the shower invites go out.  This is the only time its ok to list where you are registerd on the invite, other than word of mouth or on a wedding website.
