I had a friend recently get married here in Paraguay. We threw a bridal shower for her, but it wasn't your typical bridal shower. Paraguay's bridal showers have a unique spin to them. First of all, the bride-to-be gets dressed up for the party.

She is given a boquet of carrots, celery, and other veggies. Then her friends begin to dress her up like a clown bride (watch out...can be scary). Very humiliating, but my friend took it all in stride. At least they didn't put makeup on her like some do.

We then played some action games like...Ring on a String race. We had to use our nose to push the awful roap burn!
There were also funny party hats and masks for all to wear. Lots of fun!


  1. Looks like fun. Over here they make the bride do embarrassing things around town too.

  2. I've seen that too, but my friend was lucky and got off easy. :)
