It sounds like the time table really got pushed up! I’m sure you can pull it off, and dont feel guilty about putting school first!

I do think you shoudl register her! Its a good idea to do it as a courtesy to other guests. I don’t think you need to buy her a gift since you are already going through all this trouble to set up the party for her. I think she’ll understand if you don’t and she will appreicate if you do decided to give her someting.

I think there a bunch of games online that you can select, I would keep in mind the people that are invited you don’t want to play games that are inappropriate for the audience. That being said  I’ve never been to a bridal shower with games :/ so I don’t think I can help you much there.


From my understanding the bridal shower is a little more formal than the bacholerette party but that can depend on the bride. If you have a guest list of moms, mother-in laws and little sisters then that would indicate a more formal type of  shower and if its mainly friends then I would infer it can be a little more informal. I would ask your friend to see what she had in mind.


Also, I don’t think you have to run the whole show during the shower, but you will be responsible for basically everything post-shower for example making sure that you have provided food and appetizers, making sure that if someone has a food allergy you can accomodate those individuals, make sure everyone knows that time and place of the shower that will be held etc, you want to make sure you have music (and games if you like) so that the guests don’t get bored. The most I think you would have to do during the shower is indicate transition points for example telling everyone its time to move into the living room because you will playing games or telling everyone to help themselves to the food/beverages.

I hope that helps!
