Wedding season is starting up and before the couples' big day, comes the wedding shower! To help you prepare for the party of the year, we at Sylene put together some ideas to incorporate new lingerie for the bride. Lingerie showers are fun for the bride, but they are also a perfect way to get to know the other bridesmaids and break the ice before the big day!
This first game is a bridal shower classic. On the invitation, ask each guest to bring a pair of panties that represents themselves or their relationship with the bride. As each guest arrives, pin their panties to a clothes line. The collection of lingerie will add a cute flair to the party decor! After a couple glasses of champagne, have the bride guess who brought each pair. As each pair is selected, the guests can share their funniest or craziest memories with the bride.
If the bride has a lot of friends or family who can't make it to the shower, a Panty Piñata is a great way to let long distance friends send their love. When you send out your invitations, include a request for anybody who is unable to attend to mail a pair of panties to the host with a signed note attached. You can find all kinds of pull-string piñatas on amazon like this cupcake one! On the day of the party, fill your piñata with the brides' new undergarments and candy or chocolates she likes. The bride will love to feel as if all of her friends are present when she sees all the panties and notes!
If you throw a bridal shower with grandmothers or the bride's soon-to-be Mother in Law in attendance, lingerie games can get uncomfortable. Using "Linens and Lace" as an alternative theme allows family to opt for sheets or towels without fully excluding lingerie gifts from your girlfriends.
This next idea has to be is one of the most clever gifts for a bridal shower! The idea is to write a poem that goes with an assortment of panties. Below is the original 'Panty Poem', but feel free to write something original that will be specific to the bride! Attach a notecard with a couple of lines that goes with each pair. You should include a pair in her wedding color, a red pair, white, frilly, animal print, black, pink, floral...etc. The bride will love this gift because she is now fully stocked for her honeymoon!
The bridesmaids have a secret to share about our little bride / She is obsessed with underwear and that we cannot hide. So for our little panty queen we gathered up some twine and working as a friendly team we made a panty line. (Bride's name) these undies are to last you all throughout your life and (groom's name) will be pleased to say he has a sexy wife! So listen up to hear about your lifelong panty plan. These underwear, we have no doubt, will last your whole life span! The first are for your wedding day, of course they are pure white. We know (groom's name) will shout, "Hooray!" when he sees you on that night. The next are for your honeymoon, they're sexy and all lace. We hope you'll leave your hotel room, 'cause (honeymoon destination)'s a gorgeous place! On Valentine's you'll wear this pair before you hit the bed, 'cause Cupid's arrow in the air shoots tushies that are red. After a year has passed you'll face anniversary number one. With these you'll surely have a blast 'cause leopard's so much fun! Then when the time is right for you and don't be saying, "Maybe". You'll wear your little pink or blue in honor of your baby. And when your years of wedding bliss become the big 2-5, don't worry - you'll just slip this on to keep the sparks alive. When finally you're old and gray, with these you can't go wrong - 'cause sorry (Bride's name) but at that age, you just can't wear a thong!
