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!

“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.

Give a Gift, Get a Gift!

You will want to get a few small favors or prizes for this game. While the bride opens her presents set a timer to go off at a random time (your cell phone or an egg timer is perfect for this). When the timer goes off, the person who gave the gift that the bride is currently opening wins a prize. You then reset the timer for another random amount of time and do it again. Do this over and over until all your prizes are given out.

To keep things fair and exciting don’t let the bride, or other guests, know what time length you have set each time, and make it different each time (4 minutes, 2 minutes, 8 minutes). The length of time set on the timer will also depend on how many presents the bride will be opening, if she only has 5 presents a timer set for 10 minutes might not work, but if she has 30 gifts a timer set for 1 or 2 minutes will make the game end very soon.

If you don’t have or want to use a timer you can also randomly select numbers or pull numbers out of a hat to see which present will be the winners. Make slips of paper with the numbers 1 – #PRESENTS on them and draw slips for how ever many prizes you have to give out. So if you pull 3, 6, 10, 18 then when the bride opens the 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 18th gift those guests win. You will want to keep the numbers a secret so the bride doesn’t know which gift will be a winner either.

This can be a fun and exciting game since the guests will not know when a “win” will happen, and it keeps things more fun during present opening. You’re guests will love it.

Bridal Shower Gift Bingo

Another version of the classic bridal shower bingo game many people have played. The gift version is very popular since it is so random and it gives your guests something to do while the bride opens her presents.

Make a set of bingo cards with 25 empty spaces. Fill in the spaces with names of presents the bride may be getting instead of numbers (nightgown, blender, necklace, gift certificate, bubble bath, etc). You will need to make one bingo card for each guest playing, and make sure the gifts are randomly shuffled on each card.

Many places have software you can use that will randomly create an unlimited number of bingo cards for you, so if you are not up to doing each one by hand, or you have more than a few guests, you many want to try that instead (check out the fee based, online Bingo Card Generator).

Hand out markers or pens to your guests to mark the cards. As the bride opens her presents the guests can tick off the present on their bingo cards if they have it. The guest who gets a complete line filled in and has bingo first, wins.

Name 4 Things…

Tell all your guests you have a quick game to play to get the party started. Give each guest a scrap of paper and a pen (or pencil) and ask each person to write down 4 things they think the bride should bring on her honeymoon. When everyone has written down 4 things time is up.

Finding the winners is simple… it’s anyone who wrote down the “Groom”!!

You can hand out small prizes to anyone who answered correctly by mentioning the groom as one of their 4 items, just make sure to have enough prizes for everyone. You might not even need any prizes, you will be surprised how many times this game gets played with everyone forgetting to mention the groom as a needed honeymoon item!

Fish Out The Rice

Get a 5-10 pound bag of long grain rice and some small safety pins. Pour the rice into a large bowl or jar and mix in the safety pins. Now there are two ways to play this game; play it straight, or for fun, make it a gag game.

Play it straigh: Mix the safety pins well with the rice. Each guest needs to fish out as many safety pins as she can in a span of two minutes. It sounds easy but if you actually try it, digging through rice hunting for a safety pin is very difficult. To really make it challenging have the player wear a blindfold, too. The player who finds the most in two minutes wins.

The gag version: Tell the guests they need to find the safety pins BUT don’t put any pins in there at all! Just for demonstration sake, sneak a pin into the bag, act like you are fishing around and “find” the pin. Then let the guests take a turn each. When the first few guests can’t find a single pin, their reactions will be worth watching. Of course, after 2-3 guests, the rest will catch on. For being good sports you can give prizes to the ones who “played.”

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!

Co-ed “Find Your Groom”

Since this game requires ladies to be familiar with the man they are paired up with it’s best played at co-ed “couples” showers where the ladies will be coming with their husbands or boyfriends.

Get all the guys at the party to roll up their pant legs till their knees are showing. Have the men sit in chairs in a row and blindfold the bride. The bride’s job is to feel the knees of each of the men and then guess which is her groom! After the bride takes a turn you can allow all the ladies to have their own turns to find their significant other, too (just make sure to have the men switch places around between turns).

This game is funny enough in it’s own right that a winner is not needed, but if you want to choose a winner you can play it round robin style with the ladies taking turns until they miss and the last one standing is the winner, or you can play it timed with the fastest correct guess getting the prize.

Be sure to note that you need to be sure that the bridal couple is absolutely ok with this game. If necessary, run the game by the bride and groom and get their “ok” before you play it. Since there will be a lot of friendly contact you don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea, and you certainly don’t want to be the cause of any arguments occurring later! Might even give them an excuse to practice at home before the party!

Two Truths & a Lie

When your guests have all arrived and are seated have each guest introduce herself and then tell the group three things about herself — two are true, one is a lie. The rest of the guests must each guess which statement was the false one. After each guest has placed her “bet” on which was the lie, the “liar” must confess to and reveal which it was. Sometimes this game can get a little naughty, so be sure if it’s not appropriate, to lay down some ground rules first to keep things clean.

You will be surprised how often the true statements are more outrageous then the actual lies, and it creates perfect opportunities for story swapping and getting to know each other.

Some guests may be shy, so when it’s there turn advise them to just choose 3 “themed” statements. For example, “My first car was a white Honda, My first apartment I had 8 roommates, and My first job was a donut taster.”

Classic Bridal Shower Bingo

Make a set of bingo cards with 25 empty spaces. Fill in the spaces with wedding related words instead of numbers (veil, gown, groom, diamond ring, flower girl, etc). You will need to make one bingo card for each guest playing, and make sure the gifts are randomly shuffled on each card. Make sure to hand out markers or pens to your guests to mark the cards.

Many places have software you can use that will randomly create an unlimited number of bingo cards for you, so if you are not up to doing each one by hand, or you have more than a few guests, you many want to try that instead (check out the fee based, online Bingo Card Generator).

Write the words on sheets of paper and put them in a bowl. The bride will be the bingo caller and remove the sheets from the bowl one by one and calls out the words. Guests can tick off the words on their bingo cards. The guest who ticks off all the words first, wins.

For a themed shower: Choose words that are related to your theme to put on the bingo cards instead. If it’s a beach themed wedding you can use words like “ocean” or “shells”, for a garden party “daisy” or “roses”. You can adapt this to pretty much any theme with a little bit of creative thinking so that your bridal shower is a hit!

Bridal Shower “Play Dumb” Charades

This is a bridal shower prank that is a variation on traditional charades, but with a risque twist that will leave your guests laughing. Have the bride play first (don’t worry she will be the only player!) and assign her a movie. The idea of course is to assign her a “naughty” movie like Basic Instinct.

Secretly let all the girls know that they are NOT supposed to get the movie right and to “play dumb.” When the bride starts enacting her movie instead of guessing correctly have your guests make suggestive remarks based on the bride’s actions and let the fun begin as the bride blushes!

Spice Things Up

Get 8-10 assorted herbs and spices and small bowls to put them in. Make sure to use some easy spices everyone knows (cinnamon, basil), as well as some harder to guess spices. Number the small bowls so the guests know which one they are guessing. Then just line the bowls up on a table or tray and have each player smell and look at each spice to guess what it is. Give your guests paper and pens to write their answers on and have write down what they think it is. The player with the most correct wins.

To give the game more challenge you can have them guess by smell alone, just wrap aluminum foil over the tops of the bowls and poking some small holes in it so just the smell comes through. Without the visuals sometimes this game can stump the greatest of home cooks.

For a little fun with the bride, during her turn have the guests start making suggestions that lead the bride completely astray! Most brides really goof things up though they may know the contents perfectly well!

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.

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.

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.

“Guide The Groom’s Broom!”

Pair up the guys and gals at the bridal shower to form couples or have people select a partner. If it’s a large party you can have the bride and the groom play this one alone, though at that point it’s just hilarious for the guests and more like a comedy show.

You will want to get a roll of toilet paper and a broom with a long narrow handle that will fit inside the hole of the toilet paper roll. If you only have one broom each couple can take a turn, or if you have a few brooms to use all the teams can go at once.

Blindfold the “groom” and ask him to hold the broom between his knees. Let the “bride” hold the toilet paper roll between her knees. The groom then needs to guide the broom into the toilet paper roll – with only the verbal help of the bride of course – no touching allowed.

If you are playing one at a time just make sure to time each teams turn, quickest time wins, or if playing all at once the first “broom in” wins!

This is a perfect game for a co-ed shower since many people will come as a couple and you will have pre-made teams, but it also can be played at a women only party, just have the teams choose who will be the broom and who will be the roll.

The analogy of a wedding night in progress will have everyone in stitches! On a side note this game could embarrass a few brides (or guests) so make sure your group is up for the fun and the bride is ok with this type of game.
