Game – Dress the Wedding Guest

I think everyone knows the game where you split into teams and make a wedding dress for one of your team members out of loo roll.

I like to add in white bin bags and newspaper. At the end a team member ‘explains’ the dress (i.e. explains the inspiration), and you can invent a designer name. The bride-to-be can pick the winner. (Hopefully she won’t be biased if she participated).

As a slightly different alternative to this, on my friend Robyn’s hen do in April we played ‘Dress the Wedding Guest’. We split into teams and were given:

  • 1 Barbie doll (or pound shop alternative);
  • A selection of coloured tissue paper;
  • 1 childs hair bobble;
  • 1 piece of lace fabric;
  • A roll of sellotape; and
  • A pair scissors

I think we had about 15 minutes to create our designs.

I was genuinely impressed with people’s creations, and it was a great game to play if you have a large communal area to yourselves. Also it’s very mother-in-law friendly game. Unless you’re me and my friend Jane, and you’ve had a couple of glasses of wine. In which case your entry will end up being called Chlamydia, and have a nipple exposed. (Inspiration  – Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction, Super Bowl 2004).

And surprisingly Jane and I didn’t win. These lovely ladies did:

The winners! (the doll was actually dressed as a bride, which was allowed in the rules of the day)

The winners!
