Bridal Shower Games

Being a host of a bridal shower demands that you organize lots of things. You’ll be responsible for sending out invitations, orchestrating the surprise, planning the food, making favors, and so much more. And for a little entertainment for your guests, you might even consider adding some games to the party fun.

While some people may feel a little shy about participating in games, it’s a great way for guests to interact and will make for lots of laughs and even a little friendly competition. Some of these games have been around for decades; others are a little more modern.
Remember to encourage all your guests to partake of the fun, but never force anyone to participate. Some people just rather not be involved in such activities and the last thing you’ll want to do is make them feel uncomfortable at the party.

Toilet Paper Wedding Dress – This is, by far, one of the most popular bridal shower games on the planet! For this game, you’ll need to divide guests into groups of 4 or 5. Each group will choose a model and will be given about 3 or 4 rolls of toilet paper. (The 2- or 3-ply brands work best.) Then everyone gets to work making their wedding dress creation from toilet paper. Anything goes, including veils, long trains, toilet paper flowers, etc. The bride gets to choose the winner. Allot at least 20 minutes for this activity and be sure to have the camera ready because this is a great photo op!

Famous Couples – This is sort of a trivia game and may attract more participants since it doesn’t involve getting up out of a chair and being silly. Provide your guests with a list of names that are one half of a famous couple. These can be Hollywood types, politicians, cartoon couples, or any others. Try to come up with a few that might stump all but the best trivia expert. Collect the papers, tally up the right answers, and have small prizes available for the winners of this or any other game. (Allow for a tie.)

Wedding Couple Trivia – This is also a trivia-type game but it’s specifically about the bride and her husband-to-be. Before the shower, take some time to gather information about the couples’ relationship – where they met, where they’re going on their honeymoon, where did he buy her ring – and formulate questions from this info. The winner is the person or persons who get the most questions right.

Word Scramble – Give guests a long list of scrambled words that pertain to weddings, such as “cetirepon” for “reception”.  Give them 2 or 3 minutes (depending on the length of the list) to unscramble as many as possible. You can do a similar activity by making a word search puzzle using the same words, but not scrambled.

First Dance – Hand guests a piece of paper and ask them to write down their name and the first song they danced to at their wedding or – for the single ladies – a special song that they may have shared with a boyfriend or that has had a significant meaning in their life. Then read them out loud and have the guests write on paper who they believe matches the song. This one works best when most of the guests know each other well.

The Spice Game – Choose 10 spices from your spice rack and cover the names on the outside of the bottle with paper. Write a number of each. Put them on a tray and pass them around to guests. They must identify the spice in each bottle. If you’d like to make it really tough, don’t allow them to smell what’s in the bottle but merely to identify the spices by sight. Consider giving the winner a bottle of an often-used spice as a prize.
