The Memory Game SUPER FUN IDEA!

Have a person from the bridal shower or the mother of the bride bring out a platter of kitchen items. Tell everyone that it is a memory game. Walk slowly by the guests. Then have her leave the room. As soon as she has left the room, have everyone write down what she was wearing! It is a twist and will surprise them all because they were concentrating on the kitchen items not on what she was wearing!

Spice It Up! IDEA!

In 6 small tupperware containers, have spices labeled A B C D E and F. Have each guest guess what spice is what!

Ice Breaker IDEA!

After the majority of your guests have arrived, have each introduce themselves one-by-one with an adjective describing themselves. They also have to introduce the previous guests on down to the beginning. For example: (First guest): My name is Susan and I like Strawberries. (Next guest) My name is Michelle and I like Mushrooms, her name is Susan and she likes Strawberries. (Next guest) My name is Rebecca and I like Raspberries, her name is Michelle and she likes Mushrooms, and her name is Susan and she likes Strawberries . . . etc. It is a lot of fun and by the end of the day all will know each other's names!

ALTERNATE Ice Breaker Game is to have ready-made labels to adhere to the guests' backs as they enter the party. Each label should have a famous bride. They are encouraged to ask other guests "YES" or "NO" questions but the limit is three so they have to talk with others. The object is to discover their Famous Bride Identity. You can make these up or order up some from BrideBingo where they are stylish and classy, readymade for you to play!!

Famous Wives... IDEA!

A great way to kick-start a shower. Prepare ahead of time by writing the name of a wife who is a famous person, singer, actor/actress on a 3x5 index card or piece of paper. As each guest arrives pin one of the "tags" on her back without her knowing her "secret identity". The task is for the guest to find out who she is by asking others questions which can only be answered with a yes or no. This is a great way for guests to get mingling right away so they can learn who they are. First one to learn their identity is the winner. You may want to lengthen the game by offering second and third place prizes.

Quotes to read aloud at the shower: (print this game - text only)

Designed Printable Version - FREE pdf!

The following was adapted from Speaker's Sourcebook II by Glenn Van Ekeren:
Love at first sight is easy to understand; it's when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.--Sam Levenson

What you are as a single person, you will be as a married person, only to a greater degree. Any negative character trait will be intensified in a marriage relationship, because you will feel free to let your guard down -- that person has committed himself to you and you no longer have to worry about scaring him off. --Josh McDowell

Secrets of Loving For two people in a marriage to live together day after day is unquestionably the one miracle the Vatican has overlooked.--Bill Cosby

The kind of marriage you make depends upon the kind of person you are. If you are a happy, well-adjusted person, the chances are your marriage will be a happy one. If you have made adjustments so far with more satisfaction than distress, you are likely to make your marriage and family adjustments satisfactorily. If you are discontented and bitter about your lot in life, you will have to change before you can expect to live happily ever after. --Evelyn Duvall and Reuben Hill

When You Marry Marriage -- as its veterans know well -- is the continuous process of getting used to things you hadn't expected. --Tom Mullen

The middle years of marriage are the most crucial. In the early years, spouses want each other and in late years, they need each other. --Rebecca Tilly

If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married. --Katherine Hepburn

The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing -- and then marry him. --Cher

Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry. --Tom Mullen

"When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions. They are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part." --George Bernard Shaw

A Wedding Joke - 2 Brooms

Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married.
One broom was, of course, the bride broom. The other the groom broom.
The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress.
The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo.
The wedding was lovely.
After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride broom leaned over and said to the groom broom,
"I think I am going to have a little whisk broom!!!"
"IMPOSSIBLE!!" said the groom broom.

Are you ready for this!!?
