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.

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!

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!

Bridal Shower Games That Dress The Bride

Every bride wants to look like a princess on her wedding day. So what better way than to ask her closest friends to help her get dressed! Here are some bridal shower games that dress up the bride for her big day. Perhaps the look created may not be exactly what the bride had in

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.”

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.

“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.

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).

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.”

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.

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.

“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.

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!

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!

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!
