Bridal shower games

Thanks!

They are all horrible & everyone hates them. The only one that is acceptable is BRIDAL bingo. Instead of #s you fill in the grid with types of shower gifts (toaster, cookbook, cash, Home Depot Gift card etc). Each card must be unique. Then you have prizes for whoever gets 5 in a row. That is the only way to make guests care about watching somebody else open presents for a long period of time.

Itís not that long of time. This will be shower #3 so most of the gifts are gone from her registry and so I put down gift card suggestions to a few places. Itís going to be private in a restaurant and yes there will be wine!

Then give out random prizes or have raffle tickets for prizes. Don't subject people to games.

Their wedding is in Maryland and people are going to need to travel and book rooms for that, I donít know why youíd think itís for people who didnít make the cut of a shower theyíd have to travel four hours to get to.

OK. . . logistics. But don't expect guests to move about to play games in a restaurant. Stick to bridal bingo. It's unassuming.

Theyíre games you play while seated. Iím not breaking out the ole cornhole board for it or anything.

My family loves games and the bride fits right in.

Another vote for no games. Manufactured fun isn't fun.

See I won at the last shower we all went to, well not the last one but the one before that, and I scored a nice merlot wrapped in a really cool looking quality cotton dish towel.

First I liked winning and second I liked my prize. Just yesterday I was putting away my valentine decorations and pulled out st pats and in that box was the dish towel from my cousin. It made me think of her and that day from last year.

No offense but Iím glad all you ladies arenít coming to my shower. I didnít ask yes or no to games, I asked for game ideas.

Look if you & your crew like games, play away. Do realize that many people hate them, as you have seen from these posts. Because it's in a restaurant keep movement to a minimum to avoid annoying other patrons.

You can easily play a version of the newlywed game. Ask him some Qs. Then get her to guess what he said:


1. Where was their 1st date?


2. What's her favorite food/color/movie etc.


3. Where were they when they 1st "made whoopie"?


etc.

We’re going to have the restaurant all to ourselves. I rented the place out for the afternoon and they won’t start serving dinner until five.

We’re fancy game players
