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.
Guess like the bride: Everyone gets paper. You pick either the bride's name, the groom's name, or their last name. Write it vertically down the left side of the paper. Let's take "Brianna" for example. Everyone chooses one word for each letter of the name that has to do anything wedding/marriage related. Example, B=Bride, R=ring I=icing, etc. The bride does the same. The bride then reads off her answers and anyone who matches the bride's answers gets 1 point per correct match. The person with the most points wins. Note: Give a hint to the bride that she should be tricky and think of creative words to stump people!
