Walking up the aisle, exchanging marriage vows, pronouncing I do, then dancing and eating, and mingling with all of the guests is the simple part. Everything that comes before that well, those are the truly giant to-do things. The couple to-be is given engagement party ; theres a dinner run-through ; and then you marry' ceremony, reception, and the dream takes on a life of its own. The bride is on a ferris wheel of parties, but the one party that's solely for her' the one where she will be able to kick off her shoes and relax' is her bridal shower.

Maybe the girls would enjoy a guessing game whereby they'd each guess how many duplicate marriage gifts the bride had received and the one who won would get a toy duplicate of one of the gifts. Planning a wedding gown is a delightful game too. The girls do pin-up drawings of a wedding outfit on wrapping paper tissue and parade them around. The winner is decided on by vote and she wins a lipstick or some other sort of cosmetic. bridal bouquets The bridal shower is a gathering of close, good, mates : a soppy journey of fellowship from past times into the future : a time for plenty of guffaws, cuddles, kisses, and tears : a time that only girls really understand and one that should be particularly memorable for each one.
