You'll want to think about your guests, their level of fitness, and their comfort levels when planning this event. It works best with a tight group of friends, and when people are pretty evenly matched. This type of shower is usually in addition to _ rather than instead of _ a more traditional shower.
Tally your resources. Who's contributing to this thing, financially and time and effort wise? Do the couple's mothers have strong opinions (or money) to contribute? It's not unusual for moms to have a bunch of thoughts, so it's wise to check that out in advance. Beyond that, what can all the wedding party members afford to do or contribute? If no one's around to join you on craft nights, you may want to rethink those elaborate DIY favors. If all of the wedding party is on tight on budgets, don't try to rent out the Ritz_Carlton for an afternoon of oysters.
