For the first variation on this game, distribute the bingo cards and pencils before the bride begins to open her gifts. Ask all of the guests to fill the center square with the gift she gave to the bride _ that's her free square. Then, tell the guests to fill in all of the other squares with possible gifts the bride will receive. Even if guests talk out loud and overhear ideas from other guests, each card will look different since the placement of the possible gifts will vary on each card.
In some cases, it's appropriate for all guests to pick up a portion of the costs for a shower. For example, an invitation to a restaurant bridal shower might read, "We'll celebrate with a Dutch lunch (entrees cost about บ), followed by cake and champagne in the garden." A spa invitation might read, "We've got the room reserved at XYZ spa. Call the spa directly to book your appointment. Instead of a present, please bring ษ to pay for the bride's treatments and send her on her way with a deluxe spa gift certificate."
