Bridal Shower 101: Game On
Play together, laugh together, and get the inside scoop from the bride's great aunt--bridal shower activities break the ice and give the party a lighthearted spin.
Veteran shower-goers know that you can have too much of a good thing, so limit the selection to one or two.
- Whose Bride is This Anyway? How well do the guests know the bride or groom? The person who scores highest wins a prize.
- Bouquet Bonanza. Guests compete to see who can create the most beautiful/amusing/thematic bridal bouquet using craft store materials supplied by the host: colored tissue paper, chenille sticks, floral tape, ribbons, etc. The event is timed and voting is by applause-o-meter.
- Thanks for the Memories. Ask guests in advance to decorate a scrapbook page (mail blank pages with the invitations) illustrating a favorite memory of the bride or groom, a special childhood photo, or a recipe for a good marriage. Let each guest make a presentation, then bind the pages into an album. Have extra blanks and art supplies on hand for those who forget to bring a page.
