Although games at your bridal shower aren’t a must by any means, they’re a tradition for a reason—they help your closest friends and family members get to know one another while celebrating the happy couple. If you’re searching for bridal shower game ideas ahead of your event, we’ve got you covered.
Where Were We?
Hang up roughly ten numbered pictures of the couple on various trips or in different locations. Guests can write down where they think each picture was taken, and the person with the most correct guesses wins a small prize.
Find the Guest
Find the Guest is a game that also serves as an awesome icebreaker to get guests interacting. Each attendee receives a checklist of characteristics—like who has been married ten years or longer, speaks a foreign language, is wearing blue shoes, etc.—and must circulate the room to find a guest who matches each one. Everyone will have a ball chatting up the room and finding out more about your nearest and dearest!
Play a music-matching game that pulls wedding songs from the couple’s extended families. At the shower, display wedding photos from the couple’s parents, grandparents, aunts, cousins, and siblings. Then, have guests try to match the photo of each couple with their first dance song. Play a slideshow with the correct songs (shortened, for time) and award the guest with the most matches a musically themed gift.
Interactive Scavenger Hunt
An interactive scavenger hunt will get guests up and on their feet while getting to know one another better in a relaxed yet competitive setting. It’s an especially good idea if you’re hosting a coed shower. If the event is in the couple’s hometown or an appropriate location, clues like “This is where the couple had their first date” or “This is where the couple shared their first kiss” are usually a fun place to start.
