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!

Blindfolded Bridal Shower Games

Fooling around in the dark takes on a whole new meaning with these bridal shower games. You will need a blindfold for all them and some sporting guests with a great sense of humor. These games work well with any age group. Blindfolded Bridal Shower Game #1: Lets Wash Some Dishes Doing the dishes is

“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.

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.

Wedding Taboo Game

This is the popular game Taboo, but with a bridal twist. Create game cards using 3×5 cards cut in half, or print them off, 12 to a sheet, on your computer. Each game card should have a main word at the top, this is the word the team has to guess, and 5-6 “taboo” words at the bottom, these are the words the player can NOT say while giving clues to their team. Example: Main Word is “Bride”, taboo words can be female, dress, bouquet, veil, and white. Main word is “Cherish”, taboo words can be vows, treasure, care for, bride, groom, and song. You want to make enough for each team to do at least a few rounds each.

There is a paid to print version of this game available, so if you are not up to making taboo cards by hand, or you have more than a few guests, you many want to try that instead (check out the fee based, Wedding Taboo Card Game).

Divide your guests into teams of 2-4 people. Taking turns, each team gets a chance to earn points. On the team’s turn the hostess gives one team member a taboo card. The top word on the card is the word their team needs to guess in 60 seconds or less. The words listed below are words you CAN’T say when trying to get your team to guess the top word. The rest of the team members shout out their answers trying to guess the word until they correctly guess it or time runs out. Correct guesses in 60 seconds or less earns the team a point.

Depending on the number of teams, and the time you want to spend playing, you can play for a set number of rounds (highest score at end wins), or until one team hits a set score. This is a very entertaining game that gets your guest involved (and laughing out loud!). Great game for co-ed showers, too.

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

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).

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!

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!

Bridal Shower “Kitchen Raffle”

Inform guests on your invitations that there will be a raffle at the shower and each ticket will cost them a small kitchen supply item (You can change this to fit any theme – honeymoon items, beauty products, etc…). Guests can then buy as many raffle tickets as they want with products like bottle of spices, measuring cups, spoons and kitchen towels.

As your guests arrive “sell” them their tickets and give them one ticket for every item they bring, placing half in a jar or bucket and giving the guest the other half. Some guests will end up with 1 or 2 tickets, other guests may end up with 10 or more tickets, but the bride-to-be will walk away the winner with all her soon-to-be much needed kitchen supplies.

You can easily print your own raffle tickets on your computer or buy a full roll of “real” raffle tickets online or at a party store. There are also sites that you can use to print an unlimited number of cute raffle tickets for your guests, so if you looking for something quick and simple you many want to check them out. (check out the “pay-to-print” Bridal Shower Raffle Tickets Generator).

Once all the guests have arrived and “purchased” their tickets shake the ticket bucket up and get the bride to be to pull out the winning number (or numbers) and award a prize. You can easily draw a as many winners as you like to hand out door prizes or favors.

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.

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.”

“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!

Dress The “Bride”

You need at least 8-10 guests for this bridal shower game. The more the merrier. Divide the guests into teams of three or more and make as many teams as possible. Give each group 2 rolls of toilet paper. Instruct them to choose a “bride” from amongst their team and make her a bridal dress or wedding gown – using ONLY the toilet paper! Depending on the group you can make it a timed event (no more than 10 minutes), or just wait until each team is finished.

After the “brides” are dressed let them model their gowns to the Wedding March so that the real bride can choose a winner. You will be surprised how interactive even the shyest of guests will be when they are trying to help their team make a better “dress” to win.

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!

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.

“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.

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!
