I recently went to an engagement party where the Maid/Matron of Honor made the FB and FH sit back to back on chairs. They each had a shoe in their hand the FB had the Husbands shoe , the FH had the FB’s shoe.

Game ItemsBride  & Groomb)   2  chairs  c) brides  shoe d) husbands shoe

Objective:  People ask the couple questions and the FB or FH raise the shoe if it applies to their partner


Example:  Who was the one that gave the first kiss?                (ONe or two shoes will go up)               Who  was the first one to say I love You?                Who was the first one to fart? (this is a funny one)

you can make them as conservative or as humoristic as you like depending on the crowd.

I don’t know about your friends, but I always tend to enjoy myself more at these things if they’re less structured. It sounds like you’ve got a bar and a pool, really, what more do you need? 🙂

Will everyone know each other? You could do a mixer at the beginning to do names or something, or consider name tags.

For decor… have you considered purchasing (or making if you a DIY girl) a colorful array of party poms/pomanders??  They’re available for in tons of colors, sizes and prices on the esty website…. check it out here: 


This is a great (non-corny) way to decorate and change the look of the house/area for a party!  Plus you can’t NOT like the fun colors.  Go crazy!!

I may be a little immature, but my BM’s and I decided that for the upcoming co-ed shower, we’re going to pit the guys vs. the girls in a competition.  The games we’ll play are “Minute to Win It” games because both Fiance and I happen to currently be obsessed with that show.  Our favorite game is “paper dragon” which involves party streamers! (website: http://www.nbc.com/minute-to-win-it/) Before the “competition” starts, all will agree upon a bet (If the boys win, then the girls have to

 I’m going to let them decide how risque or goofy they want this bet to be)

I think it’s a great way to entertain ourselves (and as the drinks start to flow, I”m sure the more entertaining it will be). Also some guests have never met each other, so it’s a great ice-breaker prior to the wedding. 

Winner of each individual game will likely get some sort of prize (gift cards, etc).
