Hi, I haven't read all the posts, so sorry if I am repeating myself.
I hate the games too! What I have asked my friends to do instead is come up with non-cheese ways to give away gifts. I mean there have to be gifts. There will be about 10 gifts to give out, and they will do something like hiding tokens or whatever under a few plates, or under chairs, and then whoever finds it, get to choose a gift. Also maybe have a notepad handy, so taht the guests can write their name along with sme "marridge advice" and then do a draw. These advices you can use in scrapbooking too later on. Bridal showers are meant to be cheesy, so whatever you do will be great:).
