I’m hosting a bridal shower and I wanted to know what the rules were for favours/prizes. There will be some traditional shower games (hopefully the fun ones), and I wanted to give out prizes, but do I set it up such that everyone gets a prize, or that only the ‘winners’ get prizes (ie. best toilet paper wedding dress, winners of bride/groom trivia, etc.)?
I was thinking about having culinary themed prizes – measuring spoons, pink salt, etc. and then edible (and homemade favours), but are those incompatible? Do people expect to come home from a shower with something more substantial than a delicious bag of treats?
One shower I was at, everyone won a prize (ie. if you had already answered a trivia question and won, you couldn’t collect another prize, but someone else could) and there were no favours. Another one I went to, I honeslty can’t remember if there were games, but everyone left with quite a substantial favour (more substantial than my ‘prizes’). Do you have to have prizes when you have games?
