10 Bridal Shower Games and Activities
Bingo Gift Game
Download and print blank bingo cards for each guest. Have the guests fill in the blank squares with wedding gifts they think the bride will receive. During gift opening, guests mark off their bingo card as gifts are opened. The center square with the heart is a free space. Give guests a small sheet of heart stickers or a pen to mark off the squares. The first guest with five in a row wins.
Take this classic game to the next level by having guests pair up and play against another couple. The twist: Tie the couples' hands together to make it harder to play. The couple that wins continues on to play the next couple. Last couple standing wins. Download signs for each of these games.
Romantic Movie Quotes
Download and print the game worksheet which features quotes from popular romantic movies. Give a form to each guest along with a pen and have them fill out as many as movie titles as they recognize. The highest number of correct answers wins.
(Answers: 1. New Moon; 2. Notting Hill; 3. City of Angels; 4. The Notebook; 5. Dirty Dancing; 6. Say Anything; 7. Jerry Maguire)
Ball and Chain Game
The old ball and chain: Teams pair up and try to get foam balls and chains from one bucket to another. The hitch is that you can only use your knees to transport the balls. The couple with the most balls in the bucket at the end of a minute wins. Use spray-painted foam balls and string to create the balls and chains.
Married or Not Married?
Download and print the list of celebrity couples. Give each guest one of the lists and a pen and ask them to guess if the couple is married or not married. The guest who gets the most correct answers wins.
Wedding Catch Phrase
Guests will need to think quickly on their feet as they try to get through as many wedding words as possible before time runs out. The team with the most words at the end of two minutes wins. Before the shower, download, print and cut out the wedding catch-phrase cards.
What's in the Bag Memory Game
Fill a purse or tote bag with items that the bride might pack for her honeymoon (15 to 20 items). Download and print the "What's in the Bag" game cards for each guest. Have the hostess take out each item one at a time from the bag to show the guests. Once all items have been shown, quickly hand out a card and pen to each person and give them one minute to write down as many items as they remember. The guest with the most correct answers wins. Present the filled bag as a gift to the bride-to-be.
He Said/She Said
Download the editable game card for this fun game. Have the host of the shower interview the bride and groom in advance. Ask the happy couple to answer a series of questions to help generate the quotes for the list. Once your document is created, print a copy for each guest. Set up a station for guests to fill in their guesses of who said what. At the end of the shower, tally up the answers and see who has the highest amount of correct answers.
Memories and Advice
Create a sweet memory book for the bride-to-be. Set up a photo area where guests can have their photo taken with the bride or other guests at the shower. After taking a photo, have the guest fill out a card (download and print before the shower) to insert into the book. The guests can provide a piece of advice for the bride and groom or share a favorite memory. The shower hostess can have the photos printed and add them to the book after the shower, next to the written message from each guest.
Try a fresh take on a classic game. Download and print the memory cards that are all about marriage. For a new twist, hang the cards on twine/string on an empty wall and have guests take turns going up to the wall to try to make a match. If they make a match, they hold on to the pair of cards. The couple with the most cards in the end wins.
