@DamaskBride47:  OMG! just pick a theme and google that type of shower and the results will poor in. Plan for a meal or light snacks and finger foods if you prefer. Opening gifts. Make sure that someone is writing down each gift and who it is from, that way the thank you’s will be a lot easier to write.

Also a very helpful trick if you are having a large shower. Give each guest an envelope to self-address when they arrive. Use it for a door prize of some sort and this way, you wont have to fill out the addresses of all your guests. This is pretty normal at all the showers I have attended.

Skip the games and making dresses out of toilet paper nonsense…guests hate that kind of thing  Just sit, eat, chat, open gifts and go on your merry ways.  Try to keep it to less than 2 hours.  If it goes longer than that people will get bored.

Bridal showers are the epitome of feminine sensibility and taste,  ostensibly, what we would do if no man was around to watch us!  Delicate finger food, champagne punch, worldy advice, bawdy humor, gifts, great outfits and fun.  Honestly, and I’m not a fan of favors and all that at weddings, but I feel women tend to appreciate and notice things like that at a shower.  They’re just fun!

@OctBride-2012:  Yes! If you skip games and keep it floating for 2 hours ill be glad to sacrifice a Saturday afternoon.

@DamaskBride47:  You can go with your colors and/or theme if you have one you can also just go with white decor.  If you have a Party City in your area they have tons of shower decor.  Also check Pinterest or just google bridal showers for ideas. 

If you’re registered make sure you include that info on the invites so people will know where to look for what you need.

Mine was pretty laid back and simple.  Fmil and my bm’s planned and I helped out a little bit by choosing prizes and favors.

My shower was help in a park ‘shelter’.  We had about 30plus people total… about 20 adults, the rest kids.  We had some music.  We started with apps  and coffee. Then a few games: bridal word scramble, purse game, tissue paper wedding dress game, etc.  We had food, which fmil made (rice with chicken, salad and re-fried beans). Then opening gifts and then cake.  We also did a recipe card things as well.

oh, there were some guys there too and they mostly hung out in the park with the kids so uw ladies could have our fun.  AND we didn’t do a theme or antything.  It was basically just pretty colors: tissue pom poms in pastel colors, marshmellow centerpieces and white table linenes with blue square overlay.

And it went on for a few hours…people didn’t want to leave LOL>
