Just curious…has anyone been to one of these “green” showers? I love the idea of saving paper and not having everyone stare at me for an hour unwrapping gifts. What exactly does the invite say that tells guests to bring gifts unwrapped? Thanks!

Yes I definitely think alcohol may be the best solution to this problem!
I just feel sorry for the drivers who will be limited to one drink!

Yes, it gets crazy, insanely boring.
I felt like I was being held captive at the last shower I attended, it dragged out soooo long. It was the reason I only had like 10 people at my shower – I just don’t enjoy them!

My first shower had about 45 people, and man, it was loooooooong.
We did play one game during the opening. They sent a list of questions to DH, and he answered them. During the opening, they asked me a question. If I got it right, I got to open a gift, and if I got it wrong, I had to put a piece of gum in my mouth.
It was fun, for a few gifts. When I opened the rest, pretty much everyone just sat around and watched. Not exciting. They did do the cake cutting during the gifts, so that broke it up a little bit.

Thats a good idea- to do the cake while opening gifts.
Im wondering if there is any way to get around opening the gifts…I mean 80 is a lot of people…

Wowsers! I think I’ll have maybe 10-15 ladies MAXIMUM at my shower. Apparently I don’t know enough females. 😉

Haha, we are Greek and do everything on a large scale, lol.
I’m having a party with my best girlfriends on a smaller scale, but we have so many aunts, cousins, friends of family, etc. that really would like to be included in something like this- also my wedding is in Greece, and for the people in the States who won’t be able to make it- well, they would at least be able to come to the shower! 🙂

I like watching the opening, but probably wouldn’t enjoy the doing.
