Unique Shower Ideas?!?

Recommended Posts

I love love love wrapping gifts and doing funky techniques with paper and ribbon, I'd be really sad if I couldn't do something super fun for a good friend or family member.

 

I'm not big on the "OMG its MY day and forget everyone else's feelings" stuff, but seriously, it is about you at least a little bit LOL especially at the bridal shower. If you want a dry shower, do it! If you want a signature cocktail, do it! If you want wrapped presents, do it (I would). No need to justify your choices if your gracious and grateful to your guests! Which you sound like you are, you seem very normal, I didn't mean to insinuate otherwise LOL

 

Good luck!!

I agree with most everyone on here.  I would be very offended if someone told me how to wrap the gift i bought them!  Usually at baby or bridal showers I've been to, people play the bingo game during gift unwrapping.  When guests arrive they get a blank bingo card and fill in the blanks with gifts they anticipate the bride will get (tuperware, utensils, blender, ect).  Then as you open your gifts people can check off the gifts they got right, until someone gets bingo!  I like this idea, because not only does it give guests something to do, they have to pay attention to you opening your gifts!!!  I'm sure there are other games/ideas out there, but honestly opening gifts is an expected part of showers.

Thanks girls!  I agree!! I bought this up to a co-worker too and she couldn't believe it! haha.  She said she had been to one shower like that and it was a baby shower where the girl was about to pop LOL.  I'm definitely going to do the norm, and maybe we'll do bingo or something.  I'm really not going to worry about anything too much and just let my mom and MOH decide whatever/wherever!

When my best friend got married her family shower had almost 150 people attend so the bridesmaids unwrapped the gifts and displayed them on the table. I had never heard of anything like that but it actually worked very well and given how many people attended it would have been hours to unwrap them all!

I've never even heard of that! Interesting concept, but I agree, kind of rude.

 

I have been to a few showers were the bride (or new mom) opened the gifts while the guests were playing games, etc. That way they guests weren't so "bored" and the bride doesn't usually play the games anyway.

Maybe that's a possibility for you.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
