A Bridal Shower

Sorry that this won't be a very picture-friendly post. I've had a weird day and I want to put out some ideas here.
My exam this morning was rudely interrupted not once but TWICE by a bomb threat. Oh sorry, maybe that wasn't clear enough: a suicide bomb threat.
Some jerk-faced-pain-in-my-derriere phoned in a bomb threat this morning so 6 questions in to my exam, we were ecavcuated outside. After about 15 minutes, we were ushered back in. Apprently no bomb was found.
No more than an hour and a half later one of the professors asks us to put down our pencils and listen to what the nice police constable has to say.
I'll paraphrase here but it went a little something like this:
Hello, I'm police constable (insert name here). We've reviewed the recorded message of the phone call. It was made at a pay phone just around the corner from here, at just after 8:30 am this morning (*ed note: our exam began at 8:30). Upon review the caller identified the bomb as being a suicide bomb in the Frontenac room (*ed note: the room we were all sitting in). So if you could all please leave your exams on the table, gather all of yor personal belongings, and make your way to the door single file, a police officer will be searching your person and your bag before you leave.
So we left. Exam cancelled. Thank goodness I was literally TWO SENTENCES away from being done when we were escorted out.
No decisions have been made yet as to our fate regarding this exam....but if I have to rewrite*t's going to go down. I'm too ready for my summer vacation to have to think about an exam redo.
Anyway, my friend Marion is getting married! And as a member of her bridal party I get to help plan for the bridal shower!
I'm currently looking through invitation designs and google searching game ideas.
Here's what I have so far:

The obligatory bow sun hat. Will buy a wide brimmed sun hat.

Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Divide the guests into two or more teams of at least three people each. The teams are given rolls of toilet paper, and each team chooses a "bride." Give the teams 20 minutes to create a wedding dress on their "bride" using the toilet paper. At the end of the allotted time, vote for the best wedding dress and the funniest, and give prizes to the winners.

Trivia! Have some questions about the bride and or groom ready to be asked and see how many people "really" there about to be wed friend. (questions can include things like, how they met, what was the first job that the bride held... you get the idea)

That's all I've got so far...if you have any suggestions please pass them along!
I've obviously also started looking for cupcake recipes. I have two so far.
