Bridal Shower Bingo: A Rowdy Afternoon of Frolic

Fun Times with Bridal Shower Bingo

Bridal Shower Bingo

Bridal shower games are probably my favorite part of the wedding marathon that brides subject themselves to in the months leading up to their big day. They’re inexpensive, fun, and provide a great bonding opportunity for the women closest to you. You don’t really know your Great Aunt Sally until you’ve seen her viciously plotting against your Maid of Honor in a lively round of bridal shower bingo. Bridal shower bingo really brings out the competitive side in many women you wouldn’t expect it from – even a poised afternoon tea can get a little rowdy with the addition of a few cutesy prizes. The competition inspired by bridal shower bingo isn’t negative, however: quite the contrary. Bridal shower bingo is fun, and it breathes life into an ordinary celebratory bridal get-together. The multiple winners and excitable participants keep any hard feelings at bay (unlike strategic and cutthroat gaming scenarios like family “Risk” or “Monopoly” night). Finding great bridal shower bingo games isn’t too difficult, but you might want to skip trying to make them yourself. A few hours struggling with clip art and Microsoft word functions will leave you frustrated (and sporting an inferior product). Bridal shower bingo is just what your shower needs for an unforgettable afternoon.

Things to Consider for your Canine Ring Pillow

Canine Ring Pillow Tricks and Considerations

Canine Ring Pillow

Though most couples tend to designate cute human relatives to fill the role of “ring bearer”, some believe that the only young face they need in the wedding party is covered in fur. A canine ring pillow allows you to designate that most honorable of wedding party tasks to the friend you can always count on – your dog. The difference between a normal ring box or pillow and a canine ring pillow is the fastening mechanism. While young children have to hold a normal ring pillow, a canine ring pillow either fastens to a dog’s collar or has a long enough ribbon that your dog won’t have to hold on to anything.   Pooches of any size can enjoy the convenience of a canine ring pillow; just make sure they’re sized correctly. Take the measurements of a canine ring pillow and try to visualize how it will look attached to your dog on your wedding day. Smaller dogs may be dwarfed by a canine ring pillow that is too large, and sliding may be hard to avoid if it’s heavy around your dog’s neck.   Be sure to designate a bridesmaid or groomsman to be the dog’s handler for the day. You may think that you can keep track of your dog before and after he walks down the aisle, but the last thing you want is your canine ring pillow wrecking havoc through the pews!

Why a Restaurant Wedding?

Selecting a venue for your ceremony and/or reception is usually the first step for a couple looking to piece together their wedding day. The venue will dictate the style and the details of the wedding – so where should you start? I suggest finding a restaurant for one or both of your venue needs, and here’s why:   No Vendor Hassle
Shuffling 200 different contacts and vendors in the weeks leading up to your wedding is enough to set anyone over the edge when they’re trying to plan a wedding. When you choose a restaurant as your ceremony/reception venue, however, you’re guaranteed that at least the food will be there on time. Restaurants also often come with lists of vendors that they work with frequently, so you’re close to guaranteed to be working with someone familiar with the conditions of the venue.

No Décor Worries
Restaurant come with décor (hopefully), and if you pick the right restaurant, you may not even need to add anything of your own at all. Most venues that are familiar with the wedding scene will often have selections of linens, simple centerpieces (like candles or paper goods), and will know how to arrange seating for optimal visibility and aesthetic joy. The lighting will also already be arranged in a way that suits an event. Easy as pie! No Wait Staff Hunting
For weddings hosted in blank or unfinished spaces, many couples forget that someone really should be running around putting things together before everyone gets there. Hiring a whole private wait staff can get expensive, and you really don’t want another thing you have to add to your list of “things to worry about” on your wedding day. Restaurant package deals usually come with a trained and capable wait staff who are more than familiar with the flow of a wedding.

No Difficult Parking
It may sound silly to worry about parking convenience in the midst of bigger considerations, but this really is something you should consider. Many non-restaurant venues (such as state parks) will actually charge for parking, and you don’t want your guests climbing steep unpaved lots to get to your out-of-the-way venue. The logistics of paying for guest parking ahead of time can be frustrating, and you really don’t need the added stress. Restaurants are usually good about ample, easy parking – check it out ahead of time! No Clean-Up
I have a good friend who was a maid of honor in a wedding recently, and the bride confided this to her about her proposed post-wedding clean-up: “People who love me will stay and clean.”
Please don’t expect your guests and/or bridal party to do this, especially if you’re taking off right after the reception concludes. Restaurants will take care of the cleaning for you, and you don’t have to saddle grandpa with a broom and dustpan at 2am.

Why you need a Bridal Hankie

A Bridal Hankie for the Big Moment

Bridal Hankie

If you’re getting married, chances are pretty good that you’re going to cry. The marriage ceremony is an intensely emotional experience and crying is part of the day – don’t be caught without a bridal hankie! Your bridal hankie will be your beautiful little companion throughout the day and will probably show up in several pictures – find something pretty! Finding the right bridal hankie isn’t difficult, but make sure it’s more than just a rag or tissue. You want your bridal hankie to last the entire night (hopefully longer!) so find something that’s built to last. If you’re looking for a gift for a bride in your life, think about a bridal hankie. Often, brides won’t think about a bridal hankie as a day-of necessity, but they will be glad when they have it! Brides – keep your bridal hankie tucked away somewhere accessible. Most bridal gowns don’t come with pockets (unfortunately), so you may have to improvise. Think about designating your maid of honor or husband-to-be to carry around your bridal hanky until you need it. Imagine how sweet the moment will be when your new husband hands you your beautiful bridal hankie to dap your tears at the altar.   You might also consider tucking your bridal hankie into your glove or the strap of your dress – just make sure it won’t fall out or shock any guests when you whip it out!
