Hey, you know what sucks and isn’t fun at all? Showers. Not the personal hygiene showers, those are awesome. (And don’t worry Boyfriend, I partake in them on a fairly regularly basis.) I’m talking about the You’re-Getting-Married-or-are-Preggo-So-Here’s-Some-Present Showers. Ugh.
I’ve sat through a few of these bad boys, and I know that since I’m in my mid-twenties, even more are coming up. So I’ve designed some FUN games to make them more interesting. (God, I hope someone lets me plan one of these someday…) Today, we’re going over Bridal Showers.
Game 1: Pin the Veil on the Bride
Supplies: One reluctant bride, a crap ton of veils, duct tape.
Directions: Blindfold guest. Spin her in circles. Hand her a duct tape veil. Shove her in the general direction of the bride. Watch the magic.
|Yeah, that's me in the pink dress. Obvi.|
If I’m playing, she should probably wear goggles.
Game 2: Guess the Bride’s Weight
Supplies: One super reluctant bride, one scale, lots of bloodthirsty women.
Directions: Everybody yells out what they think the bride’s weight is. Bride
is forced gets on scale. Winner gets a cupcake. Everyone else gets to speculate whether or not she will fit in wedding dress.
|Everyone knows women's shoes weigh 5-10 lbs. Each.|
Game 3: Marriage Length Pool
Supplies: Paper, Pencils, Honesty.
Directions: Guess how long the marriage will last.
Game 4: Sex advice from Mother of the Groom
Supplies: Mother of the Groom (the older and more Christian, the better), sex advice, garbage cans.
Directions: Invite mother of groom. Invite her to share sex advice. Make sure garbage can is near bride.
So, what do you guys think? Am I onto something? Stay tuned tomorrow for baby shower games – I have even better ideas for those!!
[Update: Part II is here]
