3 Easy Ways to Make People Uncomfortable at Your Bridal Shower

3 Easy Ways to Make People Uncomfortable at Your Bridal Shower

No girl sets out to have a flop of a bridal shower, but it happens anyway. There are certain traditions and elements to the bridal shower that should be at least nodded at if not followed to the letter. And if you’re looking to make your guests squirm, just try something a bit taboo. You’ll be guaranteed to have an uncomfortable afternoon or evening.

Throw Your Own Shower

It’s an old tradition that has a solid foundation. In fact, it’s a rule that shouldn’t be broken. Your bridal shower should be offered by a friend or a distant relative – aunt or cousin, not sister or mother. A wedding shower got the name by being the time to “shower” the bride with gifts for her new life as a married woman. Inviting people to your own shower is a bit beyond tacky to hideous.

Play Embarrassing Games

A wedding shower is usually a nice affair, even if it’s casual. It doesn’t have to be a sit down lunch, but it shouldn’t involve games that are more appropriate for a bachelorette party. The exception to this is a lingerie shower, but be very clear about the type of shower you’re throwing. If you invite everyone to an afternoon at your house for a bridal shower, they are expected doilies and serving pieces. If you want to shower the bride with something naughty and include some naughty games, have a bachelorette party instead. Please.

Play the Part of the Blushing Bride When You’re Nowhere Near Blushing

We love brides of all ages, shapes, sizes and families. Of course your friends support you and love you and the shower is the perfect time for them to show you this. Don’t make it hard on everyone by hiding something your friends and family are already aware of. Don’t play innocent if you’ve been living together for eight years. If you’re a second time bride, consider your registry with care. If you’re pregnant and hurrying to the altar, don’t make the baby taboo – everyone wants to be happy for you in that regard, too. Making a subject off limits or play acting just makes everyone more uncomfortable trying to share your joy.
