    So my mom and sister want to throw us a coed shower/pre-wedding get-together. FI isn't in love with the idea and but is okay with it if we don't do games because then it's like a party!

    My mom on the other hand understands this but just loves doing games. So my sister suggested we could either pull the girls away for a game or two.

    I thought we could do lame games like door prize or people talk about at the weddings where the dj says everyone stand up and then asks questions about relationships to eliminate people and then the couple married the longest gets a prize...

    My mom thought that to involve the guys, since we are doing a mexico themed party that maybe we can have a pinata for them filled with guy stuff

    So questions are?
    1. What do you all think about the ideas already and if we should do any games

    2. What advice do you have to make it a little more interactive?

      Well, I hate games but a few wouldnt kill ya I suppose. How about something for the guys like a putting contest with one of those indoor putting machines? Or darts?

      Can you play a newlywed type game for fun? Involves everyone.

        well you can fill the pinata up with all sorts of adult stuff. the bridal shower i photographed this last weekend had a peni-ata filled with condoms and candy... you could do a pinata in the shape of some breastessusss for the guys and fill it with... OH WAITTT.. brilliant idea.. little bottles of booze. THE PLASTIC KIND of course so they wont shatter.. put condoms and candy in there as well

          I threw a Jack - n Jill Party for my best friend and her husband and to help ease things along, we had music, drinks and our two games were

          1) the match game - we had great questions and people loved it. The best being "when I walk up his _____ is on my _____ we got some really creative answers!
          2) put a number or shape under a few chairs and if they are sitting on that chair they got a prize - not to girly and not to long!

            I know a couple friends of mine did a "tool" party. Since the guys never get anything fun. They also had a pool/bbq party and said it was tons of fun!

              I think it's so sweet and fun that your mom & sister want to throw you guys the shower! I say let them run with it and plan whatever they want and play whatever kinds of games they think you and your guests will love. Your mom & sister should love the vote of confidence from you guys, and even if they cover the party with games, it'll only be what 2-3 hours of your FI's time. And you can make it up to him that night!
