The Chef’s Apron

Buy a nice apron and pin as many kitchen related utensils and things on it that you can. You can buy new kitchen items or use borrowed items, you will just want a nice selection of items like ladel, strainer, measuring spoons, dish towels, etc. When the bride arrives ask her to wear the apron and walk around the room for a couple of minutes, this is a nice time to have guests mingle and talk.

After a 10 minutes or so send the bride to another room to remove the apron (she can come back so as not to miss the fun!) and give your guests paper and pens. Ask the guests to write down as many things as they can remember seeing on the bride. The player who remembers the most number of things wins. You will be surprised how many people can’t remember what they saw on the apron even after talking to the bride for a while.

If you choose to buy a new apron and new utensils to pin on the apron, this makes a great bridal shower gift for for the bride, too.

Advice To The Letter

Put down the bride’s name vertically on paper cards. Ask each guest to write out a piece of advice (only 2-3 words each), beginning with the letters in the bride’s name. The advice can be risque or pragmatic. Of course, the more risque is it the more fun everyone has! Get the bride to read out all the advice aloud and share a few good laughs.

Example: Andrea
A: Always say “I love you”
N: Never go to bed angry
D: Don’t forget the sexy underware
R: Read Cosmo for advice
E: Eat in bed
A: Act naughty!

To add a bit of competition to the activity turn it into a fun contest with everyone voting on the “Best Advice”, “Most Creative”, “Funniest Advice” etc. Give a small prize for each winner.

At the end collect up all the advice pages and put them in a book or memory box for the bride as a great reminder of her shower.

Taboo & Tokens

Select a word that is considered “Taboo” for the duration of the bridal shower. “Bride”, “Marriage”, “Love” are all possible taboo words. As soon as a guest arrives at the bridal shower, tell her what the taboo word(s) are and give her a “token”. Safety pins, plastic bracelets, even a small ribbon, anything that can be passed around easily makes a perfect “token”.

If a guest hears another guest using the taboo word, she can take a token from her. The guest with the maximum number of tokens at the end of the bridal shower wins the game.

For a themed shower you can use a “token” that is related to it. So if you are having a Hawaiian bridal shower theme, get leis to use as tokens. For a garden theme bridal shower you can use flowers as tokens and so on.

This is a great ice breaker game as it gets guests who do not even know each other talking and trying to get token from people they have never met.

Memory Game With A Twist

Put 15-20 wedding related items in a tray and ask the bride to walk around the room with the tray for a couple of minutes. Most guests who are familiar with the game will get clued in and try really hard to memorize as many items in the tray as they can. Now the fun begins!

Ask the bride the leave the room and then tell the guests to jot down whatever they can remember about the bride’s attire! Most guests would be reviewing the contents of the tray in their mind. To be suddenly asked what the bride was wearing will throw them off completely. Great to see most of the women fail completely and some even come up with completely outrageous suggestions about what the bride is wearing.

It is best to play this game at the beginning of the shower rather than towards the end and a great way to get people mingling and breaking the ice.

Needle & Thread

Ask the bride to leave the room for a few minutes. Get one of the girls to hold up a needle. Ask the bride to come back into the room and try to thread the needle. The girl holding the needle needs to keep moving it around a bit so that the bride cannot thread it.

The fun part is when the bride leaves the room; tell all the guests that the conversation about to occur between the bride and the person holding the needle, actually is the conversation that will occur between the bride and the groom on their wedding night! Between all the “stay still”, “I can’t get it through the hole!” and “darn, missed again!” that goes on, the laughter will hit an all time high.

Of course, the poor bride won’t have any idea what the big joke is until you have all had a blast! Just make sure she is an easy going gal or she may get embarrassed.

Introducing “I”

Once all the guests have arrived get them to sit in a circle so that they can all see each other. Let the bride start the game by saying her name and an adjective describing herself. However, the adjective must begin with the same letter as the name. So the bride can say, “Hi I’m Susan and I’m Sweet”. The next girl has to introduce herself similarly AND add the bride’s introduction as well. So she says, “Hi, I’m Angela and I’m Assertive and this is Susan and she’s Sweet”. The next person introduces herself and the two before her and so on and so forth.

It can be pretty difficult to remember all the names but everyone makes an effort so they end up remembering more than they otherwise would. You can also adapt the game to a theme shower by asking the girls to use adjective related to the theme. So for a garden theme party, Susan would be someone who loves Sunflowers and Grace could be someone who loves gardening.

The Worst Chore?

This one can get really funny, but some maybe offended so be sure to consider if this is too risque for your guests. Give each guest a piece of paper and a pen. Ask them to write the one household chore they hate the most and list three reasons why they hate it so much. So if you hate doing the dishes, give three reasons why (such as: it makes me wet, my hands get too dry, it’s smelly).

Take back the papers and read aloud the reasons EXCEPT replace the hated household chore with the phrase – “I hate sex because…” Extremely hilarious. Your guests will be laughing, as well as blushing, and the joke for once will be on them NOT the bride!

Naughty Bridal Bingo Charades

Another variation of the classic charades game combined with the popular bridal bingo. Make bingo cards with risque words like “oral”, “tongue”, “blow” – depending on how far you want to take things. Write the words on slips of paper and put them in a bowl. Give each guest a bingo card then ask the bride to pick a slip of paper from the bowl and enact the words instead of calling them out. Have the guests try to guess the words, once the correct word is called out have the players cross the word off their bingo card.

The first person to get a bingo wins, but of course, nobody needs to complete her bingo card or win; the idea is to get the bride to go through the entire list of words. Just make sure the bride is open to this type of fun, as it can be very embarassing for some.

Classic Bridal Shower Memory Game

Place 15-20 small items on a tray and cover them with a cloth or napkin. Place the tray in the center of all your guests. Uncover it and let the guests look at it for two minutes. Cover the tray and ask all your guests to write down as many items as they can remember. The guest, who remembers the maximum number of items, wins.

For a themed shower: Select items that relate to your bridal shower theme to place in the tray. So if you are having a beach theme bridal shower, you can put a pair of slip-ons, bikini bottoms, a beach ball, shells, oysters, flip flops and other beach related items in the tray.

Bridal Shower Household Poem

The bride is seated in front of the party so everyone can see her. A good time for this is right before the presents are to be opened and everyone is seated around her. She is then told that they have a poem for her that will be read by the hostess. The poem is written with a nice selection of brand name household products in it and while the poem is read, the bride opens the “gifts” that corresponds to the poem, revealing the brand names that fill in the blanks.

Type up the poem, substituting a number for each product name. Wrap each household product “gift” individually and number them to correspond with the order they appear in the bridal shower household poem. Have the hostess read the poem and when she gets to a number have the bride open that numbered gift, filling in the blanks of the poem. You can also just have the household items unseen in a box to the side and while the hostess is reading the poem have her (or a helper) hand the bride the household products unwrapped, one by one, when she gets to it in the poem. Make sure the timing is right on this so that the household items aren’t brought out before it’s read.

We have two versions of the poem for you to use, but you can change it to add or take out any products or well wishes you want to make it more personal.

Bridal Shower Household Poem – Version 1

Dear (Bride's Name),
As you prepare for marriage, and are so filled with JOY, we wanted to let you in on a little SECRET.

Pass the Bouquet

This game is played like “musical chairs”, but instead of the guests moving, you pass a bouquet of flowers. You can use either the bride’s favorite music for this game, or just use the wedding march song to really get the “wedding” feel.

Have all your guests sit in a circle and hand the first person the bouquet. Start the music and have your guests pass the bouquet until the music stops. When it stops whomever is holding the bouquet is “out.” This keeps going until there is no one left. The last person holding the bouquet wins a prize.

Note: The “bouquet” can be substituted for anything you like, such as a garter, a photo of the bride and groom, even a small wrapped present (which you can use as the prize at the end).

Bridal Accessories

Take a roll of toilet paper and give a bit of it to all the guests. You can vary the amount of paper you give to each guest at random. Then ask the bride to stand on a low stool or small table and let each guest “make” an accessory for her – from the toilet paper!

Guests can make toilet paper earrings, bracelets and bangles, necklaces, a wedding veil, and perhaps even a wedding ring. Get the bride to model her bridal outfit and take lots of fun photographs!

Who Am I?

Make a set of ID cards with the names of famous “wives”. They could be actors, politicians, singers or anyone in the news. If you are having a theme bridal shower, use names of famous wives related to the theme. The famous wives don’t always have to be “real” people. They could be famous fictional and cartoon characters as well.

As each guest arrives at the bridal shower, tape the ID on her back so she doesn’t know who she is. The game is that everyone has to guess their own identity by asking the other guests yes or no questions. They could be questions like “Am I fictional?”, “Am I living?”, “Am I an actress (author, singers, etc)?”. The others can only reply with a simple yes or a no. The first person to guess who they are wins! You stop at the first winner, or can keep the game going for a second and third prize, or until everyone guesses who they.

This is a great way to get your guests mingling and will help even the shyest of guests break the ice since they will need to find out “Who Am I?”

Free Printable Version Available

We have a free printable, “ready-to-play” version of the “Who Am I?” Famous Wives game available in our printable bridal games section, as well. If you don’t want to use name cards or make up your own names this printable makes the game super easy and quick to get going. Perfect for last minute.

“Postage Paid” Bridal Shower Raffle

Buy “Thank you” cards for the bride to use after the bridal shower. Set up a small table or area where you can place the stack of “stamped” envelopes from the cards. Supply some pens and a large bowl or bucket as well. As guests arrive have them put their name and address on one of the postage paid envelopes and place it in the bowl.

During the event (or at the end) have the bride mix up all the envelopes in the bowl and pull a winner for a prize.

After the party present the bride with the thank you cards and stamped, addressed envelopes. This is a great way to have a door prize contest that also give the bride a gift that is much more appreciated than you would think.

Note: You can place stamps on the envelopes after the raffle in case a guest messes up while writing you won’t lose the stamp. Just make sure to place the stamps on the envelopes before presenting them to the bride as a gift.

Guess How Many

Get a large bag of candy and a big see-through jar or container. You can use a jar filled with jelly beans, Hershey kisses, gumballs, or even funny shaped sweet tarts. Fill the container with as much candy as you possibly can. Make sure you count the number of pieces of candy as you put them in.

As guests arrive ask them to look at the container and write on a slip of paper their name and how many items they think are inside. The guest who comes closest to the actually number wins!

If you place a mix of candy in the jar, not only does it give a nice assortment as a prize, it can also make it much more difficult to guess how many are actually inside the jar. Try mixing miniature candy bars with M&M or red hots and it will really be a challenge!
