If you are a bridesmaid, perhaps you may consider creating a gift basket of fabulous wedding and romance movies. You can use the poem I wrote below to go along with it (just substitute names in the parentheses). You can have each bridesmaid read a stanza and hold up the movies that go with it. Many of the movies I found on DVD for under $5 on Amazon. You can also save money and just print out pictures of the movie poster images or DVD covers in color ink on cardstock. Guests can then vote for their favorite of all the movies or guess which one the bride likes best! Follow it up with a bridesmaid sleepover or get together and have a movie marathon!
Chick-Flick Bridal Shower Poem!
And I have a lot to say
So (bride’s name)
Listen to my advice
And you will have a perfect wedding day!
No Dirty Dancing
when you and (groom’s name)
Have that first dance
Remember (name of father), the Father of the Bride
Reserved his dance with you in advance.
Don’t be the Runaway Bride
And leave too soon!
Don’t escape Before Sunrise …
because (family member or friend) is planning on
partying till the next afternoon!
Please don’t make us try on
that don’t fit right!
Just choose what you want,
Because there is no way
We are wearing it after the big night!
We don’t want any Wedding Crashers
So we hired security
Both (male) and (male) promised,
“Nobody’s getting through me!”
Please don’t let (friend’s name)
attempt to step in as The Wedding Singer !
Even though (he/she)
Thinks (he/she) is
(bride’s favorite singer)’s
Have great aim
when you throw
that beautiful bouquet,
We all believe in Love Actually
And (single female friend’s or relative’s name) will tackle anyone who gets in her way!
We know (groom’s name) will think
When his Pretty Woman
walks down the aisle
You won’t have to Say Anything…
He will just know by your smile.
You are destined to be,
A stunning Princess Bride.
Just know your Bridesmaids
Will be standing
proudly by your side.
Follow my advice
and you will avoid
Follow your heart
And you and (groom’s name)
will live happily Ever After !
