Many women who are planning to get married are as excited about planning their wedding shower party as they are about planning the wedding itself. While a marriage ceremony and reception can be very stressful for a bride to plan because it usually requires meeting the expectations of a large number of people including the groom's family, a wedding shower party is a low-key bash with friends, so the bride can really relax and enjoy planning a wedding shower party. In fact, planning a small, fun wedding shower party can be a great break from the hectic process of planning a wedding ceremony and reception.
Planning a wedding requires making hundreds of decisions about everything from the flavor of the icing on the cake to the color of the engraved border on the invitations. Planning a wedding shower party only requires choosing a few snack, decorations, drinks and activities. The only decisions a bride to be needs to make about a wedding shower party are fun decisions like choosing what champagne to serve, whether to play panty hose or not, and whether the party should be on a Friday or a Saturday. Once the bride has picked Veuve Cliquot, decided to serve it on a Friday, and chosen to play the funny panty hose game, she can just relax and enjoy talking, laughing, and joining her guests as they sip from their stemware and play panty hose.
Not every bride decides to play panty hose, but even those who do not choose to play panty hose specifically usually decide to include some kind of games in their wedding shower party planning. The funny panty hose game is a very popular choice for a wedding shower party game, as any guest of any age can play panty hose very easily, and it does not take a lot of advance preparation to play panty hose. However, some brides to be choose to include quite elaborate games which require buying prizes, creating game boards or puzzles in advance, or even hiding items and creating clues for a fun treasure hunt style of activity.
How elaborate the games are depends solely on the temperament of the bride, and many women enjoy planning very elaborate activities. However, many other women choose to take a more relaxed approach to their wedding shower games, and simply decide to play panty hose, pass the carrot, penny for your thoughts, or other games which are easy to plan, explain, play, and enjoy.
The kind of wedding shower games you choose to play depends on your own temperament and tastes, but also on the size of your party and the guests you are planning to have. For example, many brides use their wedding shower party as a chance to get to know the women in the groom's family. If this is the case, you will want to steer clear of any game which can get racy or embarrassing, like the easy to play purse game, and will want to opt for safer fare like the funny panty hose game.
If, on the other hand, your party will be mainly for you and your friends, you may want to include some more outrageous activities like pass the carrot. Whatever your wedding shower party style, planning to play a few games can really get everybody in the party mood.
