As promised (a day later than promised), I’m back with more details on the Bridal Shower. Since this party was all about my sister Katie, and Sex and the City I wanted some games that she’d appreciate. The first gave is a tradition at just about all the bridal showers I’ve attended. We call it the chewing gum game. I’m not sure who invented it but it wasn’t me. Basically, you get a list of trivia questions about the brides fiance. He answers them to the best of his ability and then the game is that you ask the bride the the questions and if she gets an answer wrong she has to take a piece of bubble gum. The trick is to as a few easy questions but a lot of quasi-vague questions so that it’s harder for her to get a lot right. My sister did pretty well. In real life she would’ve failed with 8 wrong out of 20, but really, only eating 8 pieces of gum is probably a record from what I’ve seen. I credit it to me being an nicer sister and to Katie who knew we’d play it and probably quizzed her fiance for hours so as to not fail. Here’s a sample of the questions I asked in case you want to do a similar game. And for some background, he fancies himself a baseball player, and he was an Army-brat so he moved around a lot, so I kind of aligned the questions with that in mind, but some were pretty generic so that anyone could ask them/answer them. Firsts and favorites always make good questions. I’ll keep his answers to myself and for the sake of his privacy 🙂

What country were you born in?

From this list of 30 questions I picked my top 20 favorites and asked those to Katie. The next game we played was based on Sex and the City. I first gathered a ton of Sex and the City Style trivia but I wanted the game to be for people who watch the show. So I broke it down into 4 categories: What Else They Were In, SATC Locations, Who Said That, and Spell the Designer.
In case you want to play the games, I have all the questions and then the answers are at the bottom of the page. The only thing I didn’t write out the answers for was for “Spell the Designer” since it kind of gets ruined when I ask how to spell it, in print form. But, all you have to do is get a list of designers and spell away. That part is pretty simple. I gathered around 30 questions, give or take, and I narrowed it down to 20. I personally used the first 5 questions from each category, plus 5 designers to spell (I used Dolce & Gobbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin, Herve Leger, and Louis Vuitton). So without further adieu, here are the questions, and the answers are after that!
