Many people are familiar with many different wedding shower games and activities, but most are ephemeral experiences, fun while they last but forgotten once the shower has ended. However, if you include crafty games and activities as part of a wedding shower, you will be able to create a special keepsake for the future bride and groom which will help keep this special day alive in their hearts all year. One of the easiest, most fun, and liveliest productive wedding shower games or activities is getting everybody together to help create a calendar for the new couple.
Before the shower, go out and buy a blank calendar which will give you plenty of space to add your own special touches when you create a calendar with the entire wedding shower party. A good calendar for you use when you create a calendar for the new couple will have no strong visual style, so that you can customize it as much as possible. When you create a calendar for the bride and groom, you can really make it fit them and their style. If you know what their home is like, you can easily create a calendar for the couple which will match their color scheme. If you don't know what their preferred colors are, or if they don't have a strong color scheme, you can create a calendar with things that you can guess that they would like based on their personalities, their dress sense, and everything you as their friend know about their personal tastes.
You may feel overwhelmed by the idea of making a calendar at first, but the longer you consider how you could create a calendar for the soon to be newlyweds, the more approachable the task will seem. Once you get the activity of creating a calendar going at the party, everybody will be helping with their own piece of it, so it will not take too long to get everything done. Before the wedding shower, get everything which you will need to decorate the calendar. Some common supplies which will help you and your fellow shower attendees create a calendar for the couple include a variety of pens and other drawing and writing instruments, stickers which are appropriate for the couple's tastes, and other such embellishment tools. Explain to the other guests what the project will be, and ask them to bring any cut-out pictures, words, quotes from books, or other items which they think would suit the project. Between the whole lot of you and all of your guests, you as a group will be able to create an unforgettable keepsake for the special couple.
Once the shower has begun, find twelve guests and get them each started decorating a month of the calendar. If there are more than twelve guests at the party, set people up in teams, or break the calendar up even further and tell people to do a week and then pass it on. Encourage people to write personal notes on days which are special to them and to the couple, and you will create a calendar for the lucky twosome which will help them remember these priceless events for years to come.
When you create a calendar for the couple who are getting married with all of their friends at their wedding shower party, you create a huge, tangible wish and blessing from all of you. Creating a calendar tells the newlyweds in a unique, unforgettable way, that you all wish them a wonderful and special first year of marriage.
