I've taken to skipping bridal and baby showers b/c I cannot STAND those stupid fucking games.
Thank goodness we don't have baby showers, and that our hen nights usually just involve a load of girls getting drunk.
That's what our bachelor/bachelorette parties are for.
Is a bridal shower different than a bachelorette?[/quote]
Yes. The bridal shower is usually a lunch, with ALL the women involved (grannie, mom, mother-in-law, etc) and is the giving expensive presents part. The bachelorette is the going out and getting drunk with penis straws and tiaras part. *gag*[/quote]
We usually just give presents at the wedding for the married couple. Our grannies get dragged into the evening do with the penis straws too, but usually go home a bit earlier.
