Looking for a fun game to play at your upcoming bridal shower? Read on!
Bridal showers can be really enjoyable to plan, from the fun, bright pink decorations, to the amazing and thoughtful gifts that are put together by your family and friends. However, while you may have your color scheme picked out and your table decorations ordered, there is still the task of choosing what to do once everyone at arrives at your shower!
One trend that has become very popular for bridal showers in the last few years is playing games as a way to entertain your guests and have some fun at your shower. Some games are designed as a way to get to know the bride and groom better or learn more about them as a couple, while others act as a fun way to give everyday housewarming gifts to future brides in a unique, creative way.
If you are planning a bridal shower

Two simple, yet romantic bridal shower gifts for the new bride.
Now that wedding season is just a couple of months away, you may find yourself with a handful of wedding shower invitations for all of the Summer 2014 brides in your life. While bridal showers are a great way to kick off wedding season and get excited about the nuptials that you have ahead of yourself this summer, it is also a great chance for family and friends to give helpful gifts to the new couple in order to help them prepare for their new life together.
However, if you are struggling to find a gift on the couples registry that is romantic and personal, why not craft a gift of your own? DIY bridal shower gifts are a great way to show how much you care for the couple, and also to express your excitement for their wedding in a much more personal and heartfelt way than a regular registry gift.

Animal prints are still popular themes for bridal showers and bachelorette parties. I wanted to share some adorable pictures from a zebra print bridal shower that took place a couple weekends ago. One of our girls planned and decorated for the party. It was a success to say the least. I think she has a happy bride on her hands so far, which is great. We don’t want any bridezillas on the loose!
Zebra Print Dessert Table. - Silver Foil Curtains, Black Plastic Table Skirts & Black Plastic Serving Trays were all used to put this look together.
One of my best friends and coworker got married in Cabo last week! She planned her wedding in only four months and it turned out phenomenal. She had, of course, been planning to be married for some time, but the idea to make it a destination wedding was a bit more last minute. Her sister-in-law, another one of her friend’s and I had to quickly scramble to put together a beautiful bridal shower in only a few weeks. The bride was insisting that she did not want to trouble anyone, but she is so amazing and totally deserved a special gathering with close friends and family before her big day. Not all of us were able to be there so we felt it was important that we have a pre-celebration here. We made sure to send her off with tons of love and well wishes.
This past week, MSNBC featured an article online about a growing trend for engaged couples around the country. The “Man Shower” as it has been dubbed is quickly catching on as to-be-grooms realize the wedding preparation does not have to be all about the bride. Putting together a “Man Shower” can be fun, new, and quite easy!
These days, future brides, and even couples, are looking for something a little different to celebrate the upcoming union. Finding a special way to honor the happy couple can be a challenge; hopefully these ideas will strike a chord or at least inspire some new ideas when hosting a bridal shower.
Bridal showers traditionally are composed of a group of women who gather to honor a bride-to-be. There is usually some sort of food spread, from a full meal to simply cake and punch, gifts to be given and a game or two to be played. Sometimes, though, it is fun to shake it up a bit and throw a thematic shower. Check out a few of our favorites!
