View Full Version : Bridal Shower without the Bride?

Has anyone ever done one? Ever been to one?

My beloved brother is getting married in June and most of the people from 'our side' can't make the trip (he's 5 states away) for both the shower and the wedding. They're going to the wedding and wanted to be a part of the shower. One family in particular is like a second family to him, very close friends since childhood. They want to be part of it but simply can't make the trip twice.

So we'd like to do an 'absentee' shower. I need some ideas on what to do! We're not really game people, but would love some special touch to make it memorable. We'll be videotaping so the bride and groom can share from afar. :D

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions! Even a link to your favorite wedding/shower site would be helpful!
