    Bridal Shows

    First you'll need a wish list from them so it can be entered into the gift registry.

    How I always do my Bridal Shows is make up index cards with each item from her wish list and paste them onto a fold out board. I've decorated the cards and the board with wedding stuff. If there are items such as the Oven glove I add 2, quickut, etc. I also make up cards worth cash such as 5,10, 15, $20 and add this to her show total of money to spend.

    At the Bridal show I have each person go up and choose items to purchase for her, write them on their sales receipt and on a sheet for her (so she knows who it came from).
    This way there are not 2 food choppers, bowl sets etc.
    (After the show you'll need to update the registry!)

    I make finger foods such as strawberries decorated as tuxedo, mini ham puffs, tuxedo brownie cups, brunch stuff, Bridal cake etc.

    I'm sure there are game ideas on this board. I like to ask the Bride to leave the room and ask questions releated to her such as what color shoes is she wearing, does she have earings on etc. Something related to her!

    They are very much fun

    Good Luck!

    ok so now i am really freiking out!! the lady called me today and asked if she could do a bridal /catalog show!! all of her family lives out of state and she just moved here like a month ago and knows nobody. she wants me to mail he r a bunch of catalogs so she can turn around and mail them to her family and get them to order that way. i thought maybe the gift registry would be easier. when i mentioned that she said just about everyone has a computer so she would only need a couple catalogs to show the bride and those that dont have a computer. i am just really getting a bad feeling about this. it seems so complicated. waht do you think? can you do a bridal/catalog show and it be successful?i wish she would just do the cooking class part of it....at least then i would have a clue as to what is going on with her!!
