I really like the TP wedding dress game. Where you break the guests up into teams and have each team make a wedding dress for the “bride” of that group out of toilet paper. I’ve seen some really creative dresses come out of that! lol

And I LOVE the “How Well Does the Bride Know the Groom” game. The groom is asked a bunch of questions before the shower (name of the street he grew up on, first job, etc) And the bride is asked to guess his answers correctly. If she misses one she puts a big ol’ piece of double bubble in her mouth, the more she misses, the more gum she has to add. Pretty funny.

Also advice for the bride is really cute. Not really a game, but I’ve seen and heard soe really great suggestions/advice come out of this. Make little cards that people can fill out for advice to the bride about marriage.

@Evie19: Yeah, i would love for each guest to bring in any gifts unwrapped and I can thank them at the door personally and privately.

Also, my SIL read out loud her advice cards. It was really great and a few of us cried during the readings.

@Evie19: Wowza! 80 women! You could always read just a few of them ;o)

My friends threw me a small intimate lingerie shower. It was so much fun. I was surprised by them to have a Pure Romance consultant show up and we had a fun time listening to all the ways to spice up a marriage….lol Then we all went out to an awesome martini bar. Favorite shower ever.

@Evie19: Yes it totaly will be your favorite! We only had 8 girls at mine and I loved it. It was so comfortable too.

Eh, don’t get all ‘noided out about the boring factor, everyone knows what a shower is all about. If they weren’t prepared for all the gift openening they wouldn’t come. :o)

I get ‘noided out about redundantly saying “Thank you, I love it so much” or something equally cheesy every time I open a gift. Also I am not good at hiding my emotions. If I get something ugly I won’t be good at concealing it.

@Evie19: I like the crying….it shows you have a big heart :o)

And yes… I cn’t stop laughing at the total awkwardness that will ensue at every shower I have to endure. At least 3 more. :/

Please shoot me.

@Evie19: What’s wrong with crying whilst thanking people? Everyone will just think it’s sweet. πŸ™‚ 

Also, if you are really worried about not faking it well, practice in front of the mirror. πŸ˜›

I love the dressing up game, though I haven’t been to a shower before. We played it in high school once just to make “fashion” with garbage bags instead of toilet paper.

I also love the advice idea. And the “how well does the bride know the groom”

I like the bride answering questions about the groom.  I was Maid/Matron of Honor for my sister and I wanted to record her Fiance on video for the answers but because he was in India was hard to get organised but it turned out better in the end!

My younger sister and I turned it into a who wants to be a bride game (who wants to be a millionaire template) complete with the noises etc from the real tv show for the questions asked and noises for when she answered a question.  We plugged the computer with the template on it into the tv and put it on there so everyone could see and my younger sister quizzed my other sister on the questions pretending to be the host of the show – was a lot of fun!

I love the questions about the groom.  My cousin had so much gum in her mouth for every wrong answer.  It was really funny.

I also enjoyed playing bridal gift bingo.  Our family was a riot during it.
