demo a dessert. it is easier for them to plan if they can do all the food and not worry about dessert, and you take care of it. i made a trifle. it was quick, showed quite a few products, and was good to sit in the fridge for a bit while they ordered, ate, and did games. if your bride is a picky eater (mine was a very picky eater, and i knew that since she was my college roommate), work with her on what you'll demo to make sure she likes it! don't use triplicate order forms. either use the one that is floating around on here with two boxes labeled 'for bride' 'for self'. it is much easier to keep track of what is the bride's and what is the guests. I plan to print out the receipts from P3 and highlight what goes to the guest separate from what goes to the bride. This will make things easier for the hostess when $1,000 worth of product comes to her door. offer their biggest wish list item (bamboo knife block, anyone?) at 1/2 to the first person who wants to buy it for the bride. I didn't have any takers but the host & another cousin went in on it together for a wedding gift. encourage people to shop for the wedding as well as the shower. put the wishlist on your PWS or send it out by email to anyone who wants to see it ahead of time/can't make it to the party. make the wishlist in microsoft excel and print out mailing labels (using mail merge) for each product (category, item #, name, price) and put them on notecards. I wanted to cut out pictures from the catalog and just didn't get around to it. the little notecards i made were just fine. i color coded them by category. have fun! i'm on the lookout for another bridal shower because this one was a blast!
