It doesn’t matter how well your
guests know each other and how many you have, you should always
incorporate some bridal shower party games to keep them entertained.
Ideally, you may want to go for a mixture of icebreakers and other
fun bridal shower party games.
Written games are just too formal so keep these off your list. Instead,
go for games that have the guests yelling out answers. Make sure
you play some music too. Avoid games that touch on personal topics
and are embarrassing for the bride and guests.
Here is a list of some bridal shower party games that you could
play with your guests
Bride’s Words - This is an “Adult only” game so
make sure there are no kids around. When the bride opens her gifts,
write down everything she says as she does… without her knowledge.
After she is done opening all the gifts, announce to the guests
that this is how she will describe her wedding night and read out
What’s Next - For this game, you will need to draw up a list
of some popular phrases and quotes. To start, you read the beginning
of the quote and let the guests complete the rest of it. For example,
you could say a ‘stitch in time’ and somebody will call
out ‘saves nine’. The person that gets the most number
of correct answers wins.
Spice Guess - For this game, the guests will have to figure out
the name of the spice by tasting it. Put some spices in unmarked
containers and let each guest taste a bit of each. The guest with
the most number of correct answers wins.
Advice Galore - For this game, have all the guests sit in a circle.
Each guest has to tell everybody about the best and the worst advice
that they have received from their mother and grandmother. Write
down all the advices… the good and bad ones. At the end of
the game, the guests vote for the best and the worst advice. The
winner of the best advice gets a prize.
Clothespin Game – There is only one rule for this game and
that is no one can say the word “Bride” throughout the
event. Make sure to hand guests a clothespin as soon as they enter
the venue. If a guest hears another guest using the word buzzword
“bride”, she gets to keep the clothespin of the buzzed
guest. Bear in mind that you can use any word besides “bride”.
The guest who has the most clothespins at the end wins the game.
The Memory Game – This bridal shower party game will test
the memory of your guests. Put at least 15 to 20 wedding related
items on a tray and cover them with a tissue or a piece of cloth.
All the guests are supposed to sit in a circle and the tray is placed
in the center for two to three minutes without the cover. Recover
the tray and take it away. Each guest should them write down, as
many as they can remember seeing. The guest with the most correct
answers wins the game.
