Today I attended a Bridal Shower for a cousin of my husband. This was the first shower I had been invited to in many years and I am aghast at how they have changed. There was one game, lifting the plate and seeing who had the groom's picture and two door prizes.
There were no get to know you games that helped the guests mingle and find ways that the knew the bride and groom. I know the games are hokey, but they are a way to make the day fun and possibly make a new friend. When I inquired, I was told that wasn't the way it was any more. I must say it was a snoozer of an afternoon.
I have to plan and execute a Bridal Shower in the early fall, the bride-to-be was at the bridal shower I attended to day we had the following text message conversations.
I think she thinks I am kidding, but I am not. The idea of sitting at a table staring at the person sitting across from talking about absolutely nothing important, just seems like the waste of a day! She doesn't want to have a traditional shower, I think bowling would be a great way to have some fun and celebrate her! Really I do, I know you agree, right? Maybe a Zumb-a-thon
