We all know that weddings are expensive, not only for the groom and bride, but also for their entourage and guests. Clothes, gifts, transportation and accommodations are just some of the guests’ financial responsibilities. Because of this, some do not bother planning or attending the bridal shower or bachelorette party especially if it is expensive.
However, you can have a bridal shower without breaking the bank. How about doing it at home? With just cheap snacks, cool music, and fun games, everybody can have a good time!
Below are some fun games that you can try:
Story Telling. If some girls attending the bridal shower do not know each other, one way for them to relax is to have a story telling. Gather all the girls and each should take turns in telling a funny (but not too embarrassing) story about the bride. This way, they will get to know the bride better, and at the same time, know what each of the guests’ relationship to the bride which will make them feel closer to each other.
Another good idea that is workable at a bridal shower party would be to collect an advice bouquet for the bride. Construct paper flowers or flower origami with pipe cleaner stems attached. Make sure all party guests have written their advice on that flower origami and present the collected advice bouquet to the bride as a surprise.
Question and Answer:
This is a game for the guests to determine how well they really know the couple or the bride. Prior to the party, make sure to ask the couple or the bride some information like their first date, favorite color, theme song, or where they first met. These questions will then be asked to the guests invited to the bridal shower. You might as well add harder questions or naughty inquiries to the guests if they are so much close to the couple. This game is simple yet creates a fun and exciting atmosphere for everyone involved. Another option to this game is just ask the groom some questions about him or their relationship and let the bride answer them.
Design a Wedding Gown:
Divide the guests in two or more groups. Each group must choose one member to act as a “bride”. Then, using toilet paper, newspaper, or scratch papers, each group must design and dress a wedding gown for their “bride”. The real bride will act as a judge and choose the gown she likes best.
Planning a fun but the cheap bridal shower is easier when you are creative and resourceful. You should bear in mind that the means to a wonderful party is putting all your heart into. Having this kind of party should be an exciting and enjoyable for everyone involved. Don’t let financial issues stop you from having fun.
