Dispensing with them entirely. 😊


Go rogue. Play bingo if you must. But I would be edgy and say we’re not doing it.

I find people generally do not do or enjoy these games. The one that I think is the least boring is the shoe game when the groom makes an appearance.


At mine we did trivia about the dog and then the MOH asked my husband a bunch of questions and I had to try to guess his answers. He was very good at that - have creative and witty and cute responses - so it was fun.


I’ve done these at friends/family showers: Guess the number of kisses in the jar, Mad libs, who knows the bride best, what did the bride say vs the groom say

Lol I was just responding to the question


No games is my favorite game.

Bridal bingo. Give all your guests a blank bingo card and let them write in possible gifts. Then they can check them off as you open them. First to get 5 in a row gets bingo. We had a few cute prizes to give out and it gave everyone something to do during the present part which is the most boring.

I’m not big on games either but my mom set up a matching game for everyone to play while they ate. She printed a bunch of photos of me and my now-husband on a sheet and then scrambled the captions on another sheet. Then the guests had to guess which was which. Whoever got the most right, won. I liked that one bc it was personal but passive and didn’t require much planning besides printing more things out.

Find the Guest is an ultimate icebreaker. Another is Who Can Make the Best Cocktail. Lastly Interactive Scavenger Hunt.

Im 29, husband is 28. We just recently got married. Ive been unsure if i want kids my whole life but as time has gone on, ive felt more of the desire. My husband definitely wants at least one child.

She didnt recommend i go to a clinic or freeze my eggs. I dont want to rush into motherhood but i also worry about waiting & the risk that poses

How much would you spend on a bridal shower gift for your fiancés cousin?

Curious if anyone has tips on negotiating with a venue?

We toured a new venue (just starting booking in August) and really love it. They said in their initial email that they were running a booking special discount for October 2022 but then later clarified that it was a mistake. We’re now a little weary of working with them and don’t feel comfortable paying the same price for a new venue with no reviews as some established ones we’ve seen. Planning to try to negotiate on price before deciding

My husband and I eloped but are planning our formal wedding in Spring 2023 - this was the right choice for us for many reasons that I don’t need to detail haha. Anyway, we just found a great deal for our dream honeymoon, but the catch is that the trip would be this fall.

Would it be insane for us to do our honeymoon before our formal wedding but after our elopement? We would still do something smaller after the wedding next year!


Anyone else oscillate between getting annoyed with the big crazy weddings on Instagram and also feel a twinge of jealousy? I should probably block/unfollow all those accounts, but its hard not to check


Anyone else feeling super overwhelmed with the initial steps of planning? I’m struggling to pick a venue because that contributes so much to the rest of the day (if their food is good, how far will guests have to drive, does the town have nice hotels and airbnbs, does it 🤢 “represent us as a couple”, is it not too expensive). Any tips on how to drown out other peoples opinions as a bride who is very worried about making her guests have a good time?

Wow. People really do act weird around weddings, don’t they? I am about 2 months out and the weirdness has really started to materialize.


How do you work with a planner? We hired a planner for our 2023 wedding, but I feel like we are waiting for her to make moves and tell us what to do. Vendors are booking up but I don’t want to annoy her because I know she has 2022 weddings. I have no idea how to navigate this relationship.


My partner and I are in our late 30s and planning on a small courthouse wedding in 2022. Most of our friends (with kids) want us to have a vegas style joint bachelor/bachelorette party.
