I don't remember if I ever told y'all about this when it happened, but last year I attended what would have simply been a mediocre bridal shower if not for this HORRID game...

Let me set the scene: Bride-to-be has been opening gifts, we've had food, cake, etc. Brides entire family (the women) are there, mother, grandmother, little cousins, and the rest of us. Floating around previously was this pillowcase with a couple of markers that read 'Pillow Talk' in big letters...PEOPLE WERE ASKED TO WRITE ON THIS PILLOWCASE THINGS OVERHEARD ON THE WEDDING NIGHT. After she had opened all the gifts, they handed her this pillowcase and she had to read it all OUT LOUD - in front of grandma and the 12 year old cousins. 'Oh it's so big'...well, you get the idea.

I swear, it was the tackiest thing I've ever seen. Please, if anyone ever suggests this game...take the pillowcase and put it over their head! It was AWFUL!!!

Anyone else have horrible shower story, or has this sort of thing only happened to me?

I have HEARD of a game worse than that...

Pin the MACHO on the MAN... sort of like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but not suitable for Grandma or the 12-year old...

OK, I do have to admit that the game shouldn't be played with kids around. I have seen at bridal showers when someone writes down things the bride says when she is opening gifts, then later reads them as "Things Said on the Wedding Night." I frankly think it's hysterical. Future brides say funny things when they open presents "wow, look at this cute little thing" or "goodness, how am I going to unwrap that, it's so big!" or "I can't wait to use this nifty utensil".

As to pin the macho on the man, I think it is required for the bachelorette party.

I have been a bridesmaid 10 times, and have done countless other showers so I think I have seen it all.

I've heard of a list made like that...my sister-in-law had the misfortune to have that game played at her shower. Both she and her mother were as red as some of the lingerie she received!

Have you ever had to dress someone up in toilet paper to look like a bride?

Best costume wins?

I hate that one!!

I'm also horrible at unscrambling those dang words they give you!!

I guess it depends on the composition of the attendees. There are some things that I would do with my close friends and co-workers that I would NEVER do with family in the room.

I recently attended a baby shower with lots of fun games - the best was where they melted 10 candy bars into diapers and you had to taste/smell/look at them to figure out what kind they were. It was GROSS!

my aunts kept saying that the number of ribbons I broke while unwrapping the boxes was the number of children I would have. It was funny the first time, but after 30 or so gifts, it got really stale.

Bachelorette party games
Quote this post and reply to it Post#8 @ 10-04-02 , 09:51 AM


In May i planned a bachelorette party for my friend the chaplain (don't even try to figure why the chaplain has nasty ol' atheist like me for a friend..)
ANYWAY--i planned a "Playgirl" scavenger hunt--except the thing on the scavenger hunt list were things like: a Volkswagen, a cowboy boot, etc. So they had to go through all these copies of Playgirl and find the stuff.

Another one that i DIDN'T do: (but the woman who suggested it swears its funny)
Tie pantyhose around the persons waist. Drop an orange down into the toe of one of the legs of the hose. Then the person, using their body, has to swing the orange to hit some kind of a target.

Mars, the orange game (we call it the apple-pantyhose game) is the BEST game EVER! It is always hysterical.

I have to add that I really, really do not like the "Make a Bridal Dress out of Toilet Paper" game.
