an idea that someone had for their RSPVs (I think) was for people to draw pictures of the bride and groom and that seemed kind of cute and fun

otherwise if you have good food and drinks I am sure that just conversation will take up plenty of time and be amusing enough!

I agree scrapbooking and bingo are better left for the baby shower IMHO Wink  At mine I had never been to a bridal shower before but I didnt know what to expect...I had a ball we only played two games.  One was a drinking game where the host had secretly interviewed my hubby and asked him several questions.  All the guests had one or two questions and they all asked me them.  If I got an answer wrong--of course I had to take a shot ;(  I shouldve made them take a shot for every answer I got right--Ode to Hindsight lol...

But for a more classy event you could change the sot to something else...dunno what off the top of my head though ;(

We also played the timeless pin the (whoo whoo) on the stud.  This was after we were all good and tipsy plus the spinning around made for some really funny tries.

Again this could be modified to pin the diamond on Audry or something a little less risk-que!!!

I've been to plenty of showers without games, and we won't be having them at mine either.  Just good food, cake and presents.  People should be able to occupy themselves with conversation... although I do like the idea of passing out cards or pages for them to write marriage advice on...

My friends had RSVP cards for their wedding, with which they asked their guests to make an artistic impression of the bride & groom on the back of the card. 

The cards were displayed at the wedding, hanging by strings, above the guest book.  It was pretty cool!

Note, these pictures weren't taken by me... but another friend.  This is her flickr site. 

This is the card my boyfriend made, on the left.  Apparently, it was a popular idea, as seen by the card on the right!  Smiley

I've been to showers where the host would come up with a list of WIERD stuff a chick might have in her purse and whoever has that stuff gets a prize.

you could have a cupcake decorating ...party?  activity? 

but get a bunch of plain cupcakes, a few different kinds of frosting, and a bunch of different/wacky toppers and sprinkles... you could also have a contest for best design, though i don't know if that would count as a game Tongue

I love games!! But thats just me! Im not really into the really dirty stuff.. but there are games Ive played before at bridal showers, that are clean and fun such as

We re-arranged a bunch or words, and you had to spell it right within a time limit.. eg  EIAA RGRM = MARRIAGE. There are a ton of fun, non sexual activies to do/play online.

If there are to be NO GAMES WHATSOEVER.. my aunt has this thing where they do tea parties  and then someone comes and does a skit about the guest of honor.

So it was my mom and her friends birthdays together, and they were both flight attendants, so everyone was to dress like they were traveling.. they came with suitcases etc .. all out!! The living room was set up like a plane, with all seats facing forward to a stage area, to see the skit.  Her nephew came out with an air hostesss uniform and a wig, and began to go through pre-flight safety instructions. It was hysterical! Then 2 other friends came on to do a skit about the guests lives.. when they met their husbands, bringing kids to work.. basically funny stories that really showed.. OMG that is soo her!! it took up the time, and then everyone got to chatting and reminiscing. Younger kids hanging out with older aunts.  Was pretty cool

These were the actual RSVP cards, sent in the wedding invitations.  At the bottom of the RSVP card (which included a SASE for the guest to return the card), the bride and groom had written something like, "Please include an artistic impression of the bride and groom on the back.  Your art piece will be displayed at the wedding reception."

The wedding party helped string up the drawings, hung above the guest book, at the reception.  Everyone got to see the great talent of the other guests as we arrived!  Some pieces were drawn on the card, some were printed, some were glued.  It all depended on the guest.
