This is the fourth bridal shower that I hosted, the first one was for my college then colleague and a friend, Jean Bernales-Notario. The second bridal shower that I hosted was for an old colleague, Christine. The third one was last November (2010) for my friend and colleague, Clarinda Santiago-Ang. Now for the fourth (and hopefully not the last), we threw a bridal shower for the future Mrs. Wenning, Ms Marie Fe Domingo.
You could say that I’m no amateur when it comes to throwing bridal showers but I guess I should give a disclaimer that all the things that I know was from the books I’ve read or from internet. It took a lot of research and knowing your friends (attendee and the future-bride) to know what type of bridal shower will suit them. By the way, as of this writing, I have not yet had the chance to host a bridal shower where we rented any stripper, so I can say that it’s always safe fun! 🙂
Now, for the recent one that I hosted, I would consider Ms Ae (our supervisor) as a very conservative type of person. Instead of giving her a real stripper/dancer, we opted to simply set her up. She was thinking that we rented a male dancer for the night, but we really did not. It was really funny and I had stomach ache after that. All in all, I guess the guests and most specially the bride-to-be really did enjoy the shower party. Here’s the outline of the party, we can do this as well, if you want.
I. Scavenger Hunt
