Naturally, the point of hosting a bridal shower is to support the bride_to_be with good wishes, gifts, a fun time, and the company of her closest family and friends. But why not use it as an opportunity for the guests to have fun too? Organize one or both of these bridal shower activities that can be played while the bride is opening her gifts. It will give the guests something to talk about together and help to break the ice among guests that don't know each other well (such as friends of the bride and her family). Plus it will add excitement not just for the bride, but for the guests as they watch her open up each successive gift. One of these games will give guests something to laugh about, as well.
Traditionally: Historically, a bridal shower has been an all_gals fete of the elegant, ladylike variety__such as a luncheon, brunch, or tea__that celebrates the bride (with gifts and games) before her wedding day. You pick a theme and a DIY bar (make your own mimosa, waffles, or flower crowns, for example). And everyone gets the bride gifts__usually things from her bridal shower registry to help her start her new home, like kitchenware and linens. (See: Not a bachelorette party.)
