Ladies, I need your help! I just got married in October and am now the Maid (am I a Matron now?) of Honor for my best friend. She is getting married in May and I figure I need to start planning her Bridal Shower soon. Is March or April a good time? Also, please let me know, what were your favorite parts of your shower?
Mine was little lame. No games, no fun. Just presesnts and food. My best friend is SUPER girly and needs it to be amazing. Her brother died a year ago and I want to make sure this is the best time of her life, she really deserves it. She will have a lot of people at this party, her family is huge. Please, give me ideas!

Every bridal shower I’ve been too has always played bridal bingo. But, I love it! I’ve also been to a few where they make a questionaire about the bride and/or couple and see how well the people in attendance know the bride or couple.

I love the Marshmellow game! You get a bag of small (or big if you want it to be extra funny) mashmellows, and make a quiz of 25 questions for the groom. You have him answer all of them, and you then read the questions for the bride. Every one she gets wrong, she has to put a marshmellow in her mouth and hold it there until the quiz is done! It’s a little silly but gives the bride a game to play too! Also, make sure some of the questions are just goofy so that it’ll be almost impossible to get them right! Good luck!

@MinnesotanInDC: We did the same game at my sister’s party but we did bubblegum! It was helarious!!

I really don’t like, “How well do you know the bride?!” games because I’ve been going to showers for my husband’s friends’ girls. I can tell eveyone about partying with the bride and all her answers to never-have-I-ever, but I always feel left out of “What street did she grow up on?”
I really like games that involve dress-up and things. The toilet paper bride is always a good one.
March is perfect for a May wedding. Have you picked a theme? I recommend coming up with a short list of brainstorms and asking the bride what she would like the theme to be and work from there.

Thanks ladies! The marshmellow thing could be fun, she is goofy and will do anything I tell her to.
@MrsBroccoli: Hm, crap. I hadn’t even thought about a theme.

I hated this game at the bridal shower that I went to but mainly because I screwed myself over.
You by a roll of string and everyone that comes in needs to choose and cut a piece of string. Then as soon as the party starts everyone has to introduce themselves. They take their string and begin to wrap it around their finger and they have to keep talking until the string is completley wrapped around their finger.
I hated this game because I thought was something like “biggest string wins” and my string was literally about 3 feet long 🙁

This might seem a bit lame, but the guests loved it. When I was opening gifts, a Bridesmaid or Best Man had a timer going (set at about 5-7 minutes) and when the timer goes off, whoever gave the gift I was opening got to pick a prize. I was told that the guests loved it because they didn’t have to get up and do something. Also, the prizes my Maid/Matron of Honor got were awesome, she got the nice soaps and lotions from Bath and Body and real potted flowers.
