friends and family to create something memorable for their marriage.
Create a wonderful keepsake for the bride and groom by making a time
capsule that they can open together on their 1st, 5th or 10th wedding

tight. Decorate the box in the Bride's wedding colors.
Either on the top of the container or on two tags that are attached to
the container write the date of the Bridal Shower and also the same date
plus a year, 5 years or 10 years.
At the Bridal Shower have pretty note cards or
pieces of paper placed around the shower so that guests can write a message
to the Bride and Groom to be read when the time capsule is opened.
Along with the well wishes from the guests fill the
container with items from the shower, receipts, pictures, wrappings, the
This is similar to doing a recipe shower,
however this will give the bride great advice for her wedding and
marriage. Buy three different colors of index cards - the pastel colored
cards work great for this activity.
In the Bridal
Shower invitation send 3 of the cards, one of each color, to the invited
guests. If the card
colors are Pink, Blue and Green ask the guest to write advice on the
cards following these guidelines:
On the Blue Card write: The most disastrous
thing which happened either before or during their wedding - and what
they could have done to avoid the disaster.
On the Green Card write: The worst fight they
have had since being married and what could they have done to avoid
having it happen.
On the Pink Card write: The funniest thing that has
happened to them as a couple - either during their wedding, honeymoon or

when the guests arrive have them place their three cards in the box.
This activity gives the bride a lot of great advice and also some wonderful
and funny stories to
help her through her wedding and marriage.
Bless the Bride with a blessings book. Before guests arrive to the
Bridal Shower set out pretty colored and patterned paper with pens and
markers in several areas of the Bridal Shower location. Ask guests
as they arrive to create a page of blessings for the Bride. Have
them write their blessings, advice, toasts and well wishes for her and
her marriage. Then ask them to decorate the page with the markers.
After everyone is finished place the pages in an album or book and
present it to the bride as her last gift to open.
1st Christmas Together
This is a fun Bridal Shower activity at any time of the year ... but
especially if the bride and groom will be married close to Christmas.
Cut pretty paper (the thicker the better) into strips about 1" x 7" .
Ask the bridal shower guests (these can also be sent out to out of town
friend and relatives that won't be able to attend the shower, but would
like to bless the bride in some way) to write down a blessing for the
bride and groom. Give them about 5 minutes to write down their blessing.
(Mark a space of about an inch on each side of the strip and tell them
not to write in those spaces. This will allow enough room for the
strips to be placed together as a chain without covering up what was
When everyone is done ask someone to read the
blessing that they wrote down. When she is done reading their blessing
ask them to form it into a loop (provide tape). Then ask another
person to read their blessing. After they are done they take the
first loop and link their piece of paper through it - then form a loop
and tape it. A chain will begin forming and at
the end will create a wonderful garland to bless the couples first
Set out two scrapbook pages and let the Bridal
Shower guests decorate them and fill them with blessings for the Bride
and Groom. Provide fun stickers, cutouts, markers etc. Give the scrapbook to the Bride as the last present she
opens. This is a great start to their lives together.
