Fun Bridal shower Game

Have guests write a wish for the bride, and have her read them out loud.  After she has read all of her wishes place the well wishes in a bucket. The bride can select one of the wishes and that guest can win something special. The bride then has all of her wishes to hold on to later to remember her special day.

Having a bridal shower at a restaurant

You may think having a bridal shower at restaurant will be more expensive, but after you buy all the food and drinks, it might end up costing only slightly more. To save even more money, plan a brunch or breakfast bridal shower. Breakfast is typically less expensive, and can still be super delicious. Remember, the restaurant does all the cooking and clean up, so you can sit back and enjoy the bridal shower along with everyone else.

Check out how delicious Lindsay’s Breakfast menu was: 1st Course Choices: Fruit, Arugula Salad, Greek Yogurt Parfait 2nd Course Choices: Apple Walnut Pancakes, Eggs Benedict, Weekend Omelette
