What is a bridal shower without any
bridal party games? It’s just a dull, lifeless party that
everyone has gathered to to celebrate the bride’s upcoming
nuptials. However, if you’re the hostess and you want to liven
up the party, make sure you add some bridal party games.
Seven Bridal Party Games Sure To Keep Guests Laughing
Bingo Bridal Shower – For this game, you will need markers,
bingo boards and some prizes like candles, soaps etc.
You can start by creating or buying a blank bingo board. Each guest
gets a board and they have to fill it in with the names of the gifts
they think the bride will receive. Now, as the bride opens the gifts,
the guests will mark off the items on their bingo cards. When someone
gets a bingo, they win a prize.
The Thread Of Life – This is another one of the more interesting
bridal party games. To play, you just need a spool of thread.
Pass the spool around so that each guest breaks off a piece. Remember
not to tell them what the thread is for or how much they should
break off. Now each guest has to talk about herself as she wraps
the thread around her finger. The rule of the game is simple; you
can’t stop talking unless you run out of thread. The person
who manages to give the maximum facts about herself wins.
Making Memories – For this game, you will need scissors, markers,
magazines, photo albums and pictures of the bride and groom.
The guests should be put in teams; each team gets all the supplies
and they have to make a collage that revolves around a time in the
couple’s life. For instance, dating, honeymoon, careers, hobbies,
etc. The teams can cut pictures from the magazines to make the collages.
When everybody is done, you can pass the collages around and the
team with the prettiest, funniest and most creative collage will
get a prize.
The Happiness Recipe – For this game, you will need pens,
stationary and a box.
To play this game, each guest has to write down her answer to what
makes a happy or good marriage. When everybody is done, all the
papers should be folded and placed in the bowl. One guest will then
take out all the sheets one by one and read the answers; some will
be funny, some heartwarming while others may be pretty outrageous.
The World Chain – To play this game, you need a bunch of guests.
Everybody has to sit in a circle and start the game by getting one
person to say a word that describes a wedding. As you go around
the circle, each guest adds her own word to the chain and repeats
the entire sequence of words from the first person onwards. Play
the game till you go around the circle once, Very few people will
remember more than 5 words so the person who can get the most number
of words right is the winner.
Purse Treasure Hunt – This is a very easy and fun game; you
will just need some small prizes. As the name suggests, the game
has to do with the purses of your guests. Ask all the ladies to
put their purses on their laps. Yell out the name of a random item
such as can opener. The first lady to find that item in her purse
gets a prize. Start with the simple and most obvious items but then
go to the crazy things that normally wouldn’t be in a purse.
Honeymoon Rambling - To play this game, you will need some markers
and some paper.
Each guest gets a sheet of paper and a marker. Have the guests place
the sheet of paper in front of them and try to trace their right
hand on it without bending their knees. One person has to record
everything that the guests are saying. You’ll find that your
guests are saying all kinds of things such as “No way”,
“This really hurts”, “I can almost reach it”
and “This is easer than I thought”. Once everybody is
done, announce that what they said is what the bride will say on
her wedding night and then read out all the responses.
