I attended a 4 hour bridal shower

...and all I got was the opportunity to address my own thank you card envelope!

Seriously, 4 hours is way too long.  If you're going to have 50 guests at a shower (too many in my world, but whatever), you need to start opening gifts almost as soon as the shower starts.  We were 90 minutes in before anyone asked the bride to start opening, and even then it took about 30 minutes to get to it.  About an hour into the opening everyone quit paying attention and had their own conversations and I felt kind of bad for the bride.

So, PSA - if you're having a huge shower, start opening earlier and move quickly.
