Let’s face it, every bridal shower should have a few good games up their sleeves. I’m sorry to say, cupcakes and champers isn’t going to quite cut it. Here are some fun games that will have everyone having a great time!
1. The Mr & Mrs Quiz
Before the bridal shower you have the groom fill out a questionnaire that you have prepared on the bride, himself & their relationship. Keep in mind, that the funnier the questions are the better. Then, during the party you ask the bride to fill out the same questionnaire & guess what he would have answered.
Some questions to ask: How did you meet? What’s your favourite body part of your partner? Name one thing he/she would save (apart from you) in a fire? What’s his/her most annoying habit? Favourite film/book? Most embarrassing thing that ever happened to him/her?
2. Scavenger Hunt
This is a good one for a venue bridal shower! Break the ladies up into teams and give them a list of things that they need to bring back by the end of the party. If you thought scavenger hunts were just for kids, think again. You can make a scavenger hunt as x-rated as you want, depending on the personality of your bride-to-be. Some fun treasure ideas to include: a stranger’s business card/phone number, a lemon – may the best team win!
3. Taste The Cake
The hosts will set up a dessert buffet with samples of cake and sweets and know all of the flavors. This can include the ever popular cake pops and cupcakes as well as macarons and jelly beans. Each guest will walk down the dessert buffet, blindfolded, with one of the hosts guiding them, and make a guess at each flavor. Drinking champagne after each bite!
4. Dress The Bride
Split up the girls into groups and give them a collection of items to throw on the bride before she goes out on the town. Think: glitter, lays, signs, necklaces, veils, gloves, feathers, etc. Don’t hold back, and be sure to take lots of pictures!
5. Post-it Note Games
Give everyone a post-it note and pen. Each lady writes down a sweet / funny / drunken / embarrassing memory they have of the bride. When everyone is done, place all the post-it notes on a wall or table for the bride to read one by one. As she reads them out she has to guess who wrote it and explain the story to the rest of the group.
