There’s a discussion thread on the HWTM Facebook discussion board that I’m hoping some of you might be able to help with if you have any bright ideas… it’s something that comes up often actually – the topic of what types of games (if any) should be played at bridal showers & bachelorette parties (or baby showers)…and I have to say it most often seems to be discussed with a hint of dread.
Here are the exact questions:
“I’m responsible for two games for a bridal/bachelorette shower, and I would like to opt not to do all of the games that have been done before, i.e. birdal bingo, what’s in the bride’s purse, toliet paper bride. The shower is lingerie themed and in a hotel room. thanks for any ideas…”

“I need help with this also!! I am throwing a “stay-at-home” bachelorette party and I can’t find ANY games that aren’t super boring or stupid. Please help!!

When it comes to baby & bridal showers, I usually prefer to go the “activity” route instead of the game route, but the “Bridal Shower Games” book pictured above actually has some cute ideas… like the TV twosomes idea where you match the TV wife with her co-star mate (also something that you could do with real-life celebrity couples). The pics above and below are from a bridal shower I co-hosted last year, where each guest created a scrapbook page for the bride using a polaroid shot taken at the shower and a variety of markers & scrapbook stickers/embellishments that were made available to them.
If you have any ideas for Amanda and Jordan, please post them under this topic at the Facebook page! Thanks!
