The Complete List of Ideas

If you just want to browse around at all the games available, have I got a list for you! The games are not in any particular order, not even alphabetical. Some are competitive, and some are just activities that make the event that much funner. Pick and choose to meet your needs and make a very special day for the bride-to-be. Go to Bridal Shower Game Ideas for the complete list.

Why do we have showers? 

As one legend goes, years ago in England there was a miller who couldn’t afford to get married to the love of his life. The townspeople, having great respect for everything the miller had done for them, decided to “shower” the couple with all the necessities needed to start a new life with his bride.

Another is said to have grown out of earlier dowry practices, when a poor woman's family might not have the money to provide a dowry for her, or when a father refused to give his daughter her dowry because he did not approve of the marriage. In such situations, friends of the woman would gather together and bring gifts that would compensate for the dowry and allow her to marry the man of her choice.

My favorite explanation of why we hold showers is that it may have been derived from the custom in Victorian times for the presents to be put inside a parasol, which when opened would "shower" the recipient with gifts.
