I am not a fan of shower games. I don't know why - I just don't really like them. To me, they feel like forced fun, which is never fun. However, the other night I was lying in bed and my mind started to wander. I love to look at people's wedding pictures was my first thought. Then I thought of all the people I know and how I have never seen their wedding pictures.
So my idea is - what if the host of the bridal shower asked everyone to bring their wedding album and they were displayed at the shower? Or perhaps, everyone could bring their favorite wedding picture to the host, the host could display those and then the guests could guess whose wedding it was? It wouldn't necessarily have to be a picture of the bride or couple. It could be their flowers, their favorite wedding detail, their bridesmaid's dresses . . . If a guest isn't married, they could bring a favorite wedding thing that they have seen recently.
I think it would be a fun way to break the ice and hopefully not weird. The other idea I had (as I was writing this post) is what if each guest wrote on a small card their favorite memory of their own wedding day? Or their favorite memory of their child's wedding? (or a sibling or friend's wedding if they aren't married)
I don't know if people already do these kinds of things but I think it would be fun. Especially for the bride ;)
