Let’s talk about panties! Because I got a crap load of them at my shower and they’re all adorable! It was all part of a game/poem that my hostess’ read to me. It was so fun to open each pair as they read each stanza, and I think it was a real-crowd pleaser as well!
I LOVED the games at my shower—they were so fun, but at the same time didn’t put anyone on the spot. I thought I’d share what we did for those who are interested and those planning a shower in the near future!
The first game was on-going throughout the shower. When you arrived you were asked to pick up two clothespins and place them somewhere on your clothes.
If you said one of the three off-limit words, someone could steal your clothespin and whoever had the most on by the end of the afternoon won a prize! The three hot words were “wedding,” Mr. Sword’s real name, and “Chicago.” I thought this was hysterical because my family often complains about how often I talk about Chicago while in Minnesota. For example, someone will say, “The traffic is so bad today!” And I’ll say, “Well, you should see the traffic we have in Chicago. Chicago is way worse.” Needless to say, I lost my two clothespins right away and then spent the rest of the afternoon saying Mr. Sword’s name and Chicago quite frequently!
The second game was the panty poem which has been featured on WB before by Mrs. French Bulldog and others! I won’t write out the poem again as it’s pretty easy to find online if you search “panty poem,” but I will show you all the beautiful panties I received! I love Victoria’s Secret underwear, do you?
Panty 1: Bridal White—First Night, Panty 2: Sexy lace panties for Honeymoon, Panty 3: Red—Valentine’s Day, Panty 4: Leopard or Purple for 1st anniversary
Panty 5: Pink and Blue for first baby, Panty 6: Sexy full cut pair for 25 years, Panty 7: Big Giant Pair (granny panties)
Here’s hoping I never fit into those! I have a big butt already but YIKES! At least they’re granny panties in my favorite color.
Finally, the third game we played was a concentration/memory game. Our hostess’ split us up into three groups to make it more interactive. I’m going to write this one out because it’s not super long, and there seem to be a few variations of it online. This version was perfect for us!
Candy Match Game
Butterfingers = First Date Interaction
Hugs = Warm Embraces
Pay Day = Wedding Ring Purchase Date
Twix = Bachelor Party Pranks
Mounds = Gifts
Hot Tamales = The Bride
Sweet Tarts = The Bride and Groom
Lifesavers = The Parents
100 Grand = The Reception
Skor = The Honeymoon Night
Starburst = Groom’s Honeymoon Reverie
Baby Ruth = 9 Months After the Honeymoon
This game was amazing because when you matched a set, you got a full-sized version of the corresponding candy bar. I LOVE sweets and luckily for me I had bridal luck on my side as I kept winning candy bar after candy bar. I tried to give a few away, so I didn’t end up eating them all, thankfully!

Ok, I promise I’m done talking about my shower! I’ll be back to regular wedding planning stuff next week.
First up, I was able to check out the Cinderella shoe line at DSW so I’ll fill you in on whether or not those shoes were fit for this princess!

What games did you do at your shower? Did you get panties or candy bars like me? Did you experience any “bridal luck?”
