8 Popular Bridal Shower Games to Entertain Guests

Bridal shower games are a great way to create a fun and carefree atmosphere. They are also a great way to introduce friends and family – the same people who will be mingling at the upcoming wedding! Here’s a list of 8 popular bridal shower games to entertain guests.

Bridal Bingo

Create bingo cards with wedding-related items or words instead of numbers. Hand out the cards and have guests mark off items as the bride opens her gifts. The first guest to complete a row shouts “Bingo!” and wins a prize. (Ps. May I suggest these delicious-smelling candles?)

Toilet Paper Wedding Dress

Divide guests into small teams. Provide each team with rolls of toilet paper. In a limited amount of time (e.g., 15 minutes), teams must create a wedding dress on one member using only the toilet paper. The bride then judges the dresses. The winning team will be the team that ‘designed’ her favorite dress!

Who Am I – Celebrity Couples Edition

Write down the names of famous celebrity couples on separate cards. Attach a card to each guest’s back without revealing the name. Guests must ask yes/no questions to figure out who they are, based on the clues from other guests. The first person to correctly guess their celebrity couple is the winner.

Advice Cards

This is less of a game, but will still entertain your attendees. Provide guests with advice cards and pens. Each guest writes down marriage advice or well wishes for the couple. Collect the cards in a decorative box or binder for the bride to take home as a keepsake.

Ring Toss

Set up a ring toss game with plastic rings and bottles. Assign different point values to each bottle based on difficulty. Guests take turns tossing the rings and scoring points. The guest with the highest score at the end is the winner!

The Newlywed Game

Prepare a list of questions related to the couple’s relationship and preferences. Ask the groom these questions before the shower. During the game, have the bride guess her partner’s answers. Each correct answer earns a point. Whoever has the most points at the end wins!

Purse Raid

Create a list of items commonly found in purses. Assign point values to each item based on rarity. Guests earn points for each item they can find in their purses, and the person with the most points wins a prize.

Guess the Love Song

Create a playlist of popular love songs. Play short snippets of each song, and guests must guess the title and artist. The person with the most correct answers wins.

Beyond having a fabulous theme, these games add a touch of entertainment to the bridal shower while creating lasting memories for the bride and her guests.
