I honestly wouldn’t worry about it too much. With a room full of girls getting ready for a wedding there will be a lot of chit chat and gossip. I would just make sure you have food and maybe some mimosas.

have someone pick up a stack of magazines (allure, instyle, cosmo). They are always nice for the girls to have to read when there is down time. Honestly though I think with everyone in the room there will be plenty going on. You may even be grateful if there is a lull in the activity!

I think magazines and maybe TV would cover you!  But I think there will be so much excited chatter, there won’t be time for anyone to get bored!

we had 1 stylist for myself for 6 ladies.  It took a while of course and more people arrived as the morning went by.  It was fun since someone brought a ipod speaker, mimosas, bagels, fruit and snacks.  We had breakfast as well as lunch while we ate, dressed, took photos and generally organized.  I wouldn’t worry too much, you’ll be too excited to be bored!

We all did a good amount of just waiting around, but it was fun to just relax and watch the girls get prettied up! It was during lunch time so those who were just sitting there got to eat, and we had a good time talking and gossiping.

Food and drink. That’s all you need. 🙂 Trust me, everyone’ll be so excited about getting ready and about the wedding that no one will be bored.

We’re planning on bringing along cards as well as the mimosas and food. lol. Playing cards is almost a tradition in my family. Almost every single family get-together I can remember has had a game of cards. I’ve been doing it since my grandmother had to sit beside me and tell me what to play and when. 🙂

We had hair and makeup at my house and we also had breakfast brought in. So when the girls weren’t getting hair or makeup done they were eating or hanging out, watching tv etc. Some even ran by the mall lol Serving breakfast was the best thing though! I must have!

One idea I thought about (but didn’t happen because my brother’s had football on) was to have some bridal movies on or at least available for them to watch if they wanted to watch them… i had the wedding date, runway bride, bridal wars etc. 

But really i don’t think you need to worry about it too much.. we spent a lot of time just relaxing and enjoying time with each other!

Oh and the boys had to wait around between pictures and the ceremony so we gave them so poker chips and cards and they loved it!
