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. We know you think (Groom's Name) has a really CHARMIN personality, and in physique, might be BRAWNY, you may soon find out that he is no MR. CLEAN.

He will always be there to SNUGGLE with, and be a best friend to fill your life with extra ZEST. When you are together you will find JOY, so remember your PLEDGE and give him your ALL. May your marriage be filled with a BOUNTY of love and stand HEAD & SHOULDERS above the rest.

Lucky Penny

This game is the perfect door prize game, and usually a nice surprise for the winner. Take a penny and tape it under one of the chairs your guests will be using. Don’t let on about the penny until after all the guests have arrived and are seated. Then ask your guests to look under their seats. The guest who finds the lucky penny taped to their chair wins a prize!

For a more personal touch you could use a small photo of the bride, or of the couple, to tape under the chair. For a themed event, use an item to match the theme such as a flower for a garden party or shell for a beach themed shower. Just make sure that you can’t see the item taped under the chair until they are looking for it or some of your guests might catch on.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

“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.

“What Not To Wear!” Gift Pass

Play this game just like “musical chairs”, but with a funny twist, and instead of the guests moving, they are passing a gift box instead.

Before the party buy a pretty corsage and wrap it in a gift box. Tell your guests that whomever is left holding the box at the end of the game has to wear whatever in inside the box for the rest of the party. Naturally, everyone will assume it is something embarrassing and will do their best to pass the box quickly!

Have all your guests sit in a circle and hand the first person the “gift”. Start the music and have your guests it until the music stops. When it stops whomever is holding the gift is “out.” The last person holding the gift box is the “winner”.

Have the winner open the box, and then wait for the huge sigh of relief (and laughs from the other guests) when they realize it’s a lovely corsage!

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!

Let ‘er Rip!

Take a roll of toilet paper and walk around the room offering it to each guest. Ask each guest to tear off as much paper as they normally use at one go. This will result in a riot of laughs as each guest is too shy to reveal such a personal thing and wonders what the others think about her. Be prepared for a rousing round of comments. Some guests may be offended by this, so if this seems a bit too personal for your group you can also just give each guest the same amount of sheets without asking this delicate question.

Once all the guests have their share of paper, ask them to create a “gift” for the bride using the toilet paper. You will be surprised what some women can come up with. The most creative gift, as chosen by the bride, gets a prize!

The Cinderella Bride

This is best played at a co-ed shower or “couples only” shower where the women will be with their husbands or boyfriends. Have all the couples get together or pair all the people at the bridal shower so you have a team of a man and a woman.

Have all the men leave the room, but don’t tell them anything about the shoes yet or they will instantly look to see what is on their partner’s feet ruining the game. While the men are gone have all the women take off their shoes. Each woman will be putting one of their shoes in the center of the room and the other shoe to the side in a pile (we are only using one shoe here). When this is done and the pile is nice and mixed up have the men return. Explain to them that just like Cinderella, their women need their shoes found, and it is up to them to find it.

When the whistle blows, the men need to pick up the shoe that they think fits their partner and put it on her foot. If it doesn’t fit, or is not hers, they need to put the shoe back in the center and get another.

Most men don’t know which shoe is their wife’s and that creates for plenty of confusion and ruffled feathers! Even guys who do know their wife’s shoe find it difficult to pick the right one from amongst so many, and the guys who pick shoes randomly will cause problems for the rest of the men.

This is a really fun (and funny) game that most women will get a kick out of (pun intended).
