What’s even more fun than attending a beautiful wedding? Partying with the bride-to-be at a shower with some of your closest friends — and no bridal shower is complete without “engaging” activities and fun games. Check out these bridal shower game ideas to celebrate the pending nuptials of your favorite bride-to-be.
It’s All Fun and Games
Use games at a bridal shower to amp up the fun and get everyone laughing. The Name That Cake game has 50 sheets per pack and offers a lighthearted look at the wedding’s culinary centerpiece. This fun question-and-answer activity shines a spotlight on different kinds of cakes.
If you love word puzzles, try your hand at bridal word search game sheets. Give guests a limited amount of time to find the words and offer a prize to whoever finds the most within the allotted time.
Then, bring out the How Well Do You Know the Bride Game. Complete with 12 scorecards, this game has topics such as the wedding, her family, her favorite things, and more. This game pack is versatile enough to work for a bridal shower, couple’s shower, or bachelorette party.
Keep The Fun Going With a Combo Game Pack
Can’t decide which games to play? Order a bridal shower game kit that includes five games for up to 12 players. Help guests get to know each other with icebreakers such as shower gift bingo, a bridal gown that requires guests to pin on a flower while blindfolded, the ring box surprise game, a word game focused on weddings, and a special bridal shower edition of charades. Play all these games or only select a couple and save the rest for another shower you host.
Don’t Forget the Prizes
While you may have favor bags for all your guests, be sure to set aside some extra-special gifts for those who win the bridal shower party games. A personalized travel mug, hot chocolate drink mix, and candy jars are just a few premium prizes you can offer to the winners. If you want to really up the ante and urgeincentive your guests to play with gusto, throw a gift card to your favorite restaurant into the prize bag.
Create a Playful Atmosphere
It helps guests get in the mood for games if the venue is festively decorated. Mylar balloons featuring bridal imagery or shaped to reinforce the wedding theme add visual punch to any shower. Latex balloons also offer a splash of color. Create your own photo booth with a bride and groom photo stand-in. This is especially effective for a couple’s shower. Or, bring in another standee, such as a giant glass slipper, a diamond, or tiles that spell “I do.”
Pom poms made from tissue and accordion lanterns create a beautiful look when they hang from the ceiling. The pom poms even work well sitting on tables. Banners with sweet sayings will also help build the right ambiance. LED lighting and chandeliers create an upscale look that brings a feeling of sophistication to the shower. Help guests find their way to the party with a personalized yard sign.
With multiple party games, beautiful decorations, and enticing prizes, you’re sure to have a shower that honors the bride-to-be and provides loads of entertainment for her and her guests.
