So here is your role to help save the day! As a maid of honor and giving your best friend support means that you are available with suggestions, and contribution to the auspicious day. But enough of that, you have to plan out two pre-wedding parties for the bride. First a bridal shower, second a bachelorette party.

Its Party Time!
Plan out the parties, arrange party favors, and invite all the guests. When this is done, think of some games to play. What better then planning a surprise party for the bride? Here are a few suggestions for games you can play at the bridal shower.
Start with a few trivia games with the bride. Let's say, how well the bride knows the groom. All the bridesmaids and the maid of honor ask random questions about the groom, and the bride has to answer them. Every wrong answer given by the bride will cost her a penalty. Maybe share a secret perhaps. There is no end to the party and games when you are having fun. Next game could be a truth or dare. But, the bride is the only one there being asked the questions and dares from all the guests. Try to have fun with that, and let's see how many questions the bride is willing to answer.
Another fun game could be bridal bingo. It's just like regular bingo but instead of numbers the bingo card has list of presents the bride is expected to receive. Mark off any presents that are on the card as the bride open ups her presents. There is no end to the fun, these are just suggestions, maybe you, the maid of honor can think up of fun and interesting games that'll keep the guests entertained throughout the night.
