Our Take: If you're one of those people who traditionally takes over the bridal shower duties, assess your boundaries and capabilities. What are your financial (and time and effort) limits? Make your line in the sand and stick to it. Communicate what you can and can't accomplish__to the couple, family, other party members, or anyone else who might fall into unreasonable and over_demanding zones. Enlist help when you need it, whether it's making favors, hunting down RSVPs or doing food prep. And yes, it's probably still best not to invite people that aren't invited to the wedding, because ouch.
Another variation on Bridal Shower Bingo is to instruct guests to fill in the bingo squares with possible descriptions the bride will give to her different gifts as she opens them. This will force guests to pay close attention. As they catch a description on their card, have them write down the related gift in case there are any questions after the presents have all been opened!
