    I hosted a couple of baby showers and there was one thing that went over really well and kept people’s attentions while opening gifts. I would set a timer for 5 or 7 minutes (just gauged based on how many gifts there are), and whenever the timer went off, the person whose gift was being opened got a prize. I find gift opening time can get a bit boring, so it kept everyone happy and paying attention.

    Oh my mom did one for me that was fun but sort of embarassing. It would only work if your bride is a good sport πŸ˜‰ My mom emailed Darling Husband a list of questions about our first date, favourites, etc. Every time I got one wrong I had to put a piece of giant gum in my mouth. I’m not sure if that’s the same as the “how well does the bride/groom know the other”, but I liked the twist with the gum. It was pretty funny πŸ™‚

    The only bridal showers I went to were when I was very young and don’t really remember much about them.  The only game I remember playing was the bingo one.  However, I love playing the “how well do you know bride/groom’ type games.

    @bakerella: I’ve totally seen and made a bride do the gum thing! It was hilarious. And we used bubbalicious for our bride, so it was EXTRA HUGE! It was really ridiculously funny!

    We played a game at my best friends bridal shower that was fun–it may be too much prep work for a short game but I thought it was entertaining.  πŸ™‚

    You get a number of balloons (people can just think they’re part of the decorations).  In all the balloons, put pictures of famous hot guys (assuming it’s not a same sex wedding), and one picture of the groom.  So, at some point during the party, make the annoucement for everyone to grab a balloon and pop it.  And whoever gets a picture of the groom wins.  

    It’s sort of a quick game, but it’s cute.  πŸ™‚  At my friend’s shower, her Mother-In-Law actually was the winner, and her reaction when she found his photo was really cute.  

    That one’s good though, just to add something fun and quick to the party.

    We played the gum game at my shower too, and it was so much fun.  I was getting cocky, because I got about 5 in a row right.  For everyone I got right, I got to open a gift.  For everyone I got wrong, I had to chew the gum.

    Gum tip #1 – Please pick the same flavor.  Mine was a bag of assorted flavors, so I was chewing watermelon, pink lemonade, grape, etc. Yuck.

    You have to play this one too!  While opening gifts, one person records all of the things the bride says while opening presents.  i.e. “I love it” “This is just what I wanted” “How cute!”   And then read the list at the end saying this is what the bride will be saying on her wedding night.  I got some plates and remember saying “It’s so heavy”  and some other things that really made me blush.  Very funny!
