Going to the Chapel – Left / Right Story Game

($$$) This is a FREE wedding shower game

The Left/Right story game is a well known bridal shower activity that is easy to setup. All you need is one copy of the “Left Right Bridal Shower Story” and a prize for the winner. It’s a cute game many people have played, but it’s one of those well loved activities many have come to enjoy at a shower. Best of all, no one will know who will end up the winner until the very last second so it’s exciting.


Print out one copy of the “Going to the Chapel” left/right story. Have all your guests stand or sit in a circle, just make sure they are close enough to pass to each other. Give one player a wrapped gift for passing. If your prize is too heavy, fragile, or awkward to pass, you can also use a token of some kind instead (like a napkin, a flower, or every a picture of the bride) and hand out the prize at the end. The gift can be anything, but it should be fun as it will end up being the prize for the winner at the end.

When your players are ready the story should then be read. The hostess is usually the “Story teller”, but anyone can do it. Every time the story teller says “left” the gift is passed to the left, when they say “right” the gift is passed right. The person holding the gift at the end of the story is the winner and gets the gift!

To make it much more fun, and funny, have the story teller read the story really fast without stopping to let the players catch up. This will make it a mad dashed passing of the gift that will have people in stitches.
