These hilarious bridal shower games are ones that all of your visitors will love! Definitely a number of the most unique and fun bridal shower games available, along with ones you’ve probable in no way played! Forget the loose printable bridal bathe video games and try those ones out instead.
The word “bridal bathe” inspires a fun photo of the soon-to-be Mrs., surrounded by way of balloons, gauze decorations, and her woman pals and family as she carefully unwraps a pile of presents.
You know you’re officially a grownup while you’re past excited to unwrap that barely-too-expensive pasta bowl set which you hesitated to place to your registry due to the fact you didn’t suppose anyone would virtually purchase it!

May your marriage be filled with lots of laughs, love, and happiness.
1. He Said, She Said
How to Play: Hand out “He Said She Said” cards and guests can guess fun facts about the couple, like who said “I love you” first, who is more forgetful and who is the better dancer. You can make your own cards, or you can find some beautiful options on Etsy.
2. Find the Guest
Chances are some guests will be meeting each other for the first time at the bridal shower. “Find the Guest” is one of the bridal shower game ideas that also serves as an awesome icebreaker that will get the girls to start interacting!
Every guest gets a checklist where they have to find someone who has a certain characteristic. Circulate the room to find another guest who…
- Has been married ten years or longer
- Speaks a foreign language
- Has won $50 or more in the last 12 months
- Has more than three kids
- Is wearing blue shoes
- Has more than three pets
- Vacationed within the last three months
Here’s an actual game card you can get ready-made on Etsy. Everyone will have a ball chatting up the room to find out who wears contact lenses, who traveled over 50 miles to attend the shower and if anyone doesn’t have a Facebook account.
3. Pass the Love Story
The Gist: Each guest gets their chance to exaggerate the “story” of how the couple met and fell in love.
What to Prep: All you need is pen and paper for this one.
How to Play: The host starts it off by writing a line at the top of the piece of paper about how the couple met. For example, “Tess and Toby met at the office.” She then passes the piece of paper to the next player, who writes a line to follow that one. Once that player writes their line, their job is to fold the paper over so only their sentence is revealed to the next player. After everyone has contributed, the guest of honor should read the final piece aloud to the group.
4. Man vs. Clock
In this version, one player will be trying to beat the clock for each game. So for instance, they will have to try and get the task accomplished before minute run outs. If they do, they win a prize. If not, let someone else have a shot. If you go with this style, I recommend choosing a different person for each game.
5. Head to Head
In this style, you’ll pick two players for each game who will be going head to head against each other playing a game rather than trying to beat the clock. So you’ll give each person the items necessary to play the bridal shower games, and they’re competing for head to head. The first person to finish wins the prize. Again, rotate through pairs for each game, repeating players as necessary.
6. Team Competition
In this style, you’ll split your group into two (or 3 or 10 depending on the number of guests) teams. For each game, teams must choose one player to compete for head to head in the game with the other teams. So for instance, each team will be given supplies and the first team to finish will receive 10 points, the second team will receive 5, etc. This works best if you have quite a few people and is a good way to get everyone involved cheering for their team.
7. 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 co-ed shower. If the event is in the couple’s hometown or clues like, “This is where the couple had their first date” or “This is where the bride and groom shared their first kiss” are usually a fun place to start. Up the fun factor by booking limousines to take everyone around town and having a cocktail waiting at each stop.
8. Toilet Paper Design Contest
This one is a side-splitter for sure. For this party game, divide everyone who wants to play into two teams. Each team then chooses one girl or lady to be the “bride.” The rest of the team then has to design their bride with toilet paper.
You can cut it, color it, roll it, (clearly add balloon boobs to it too) whatever you can imagine, to create the prettiest dress at the party. The only rule is that you can’t use scissors or tape. The bride-to-be then gets to decide the winner to award a prize.
Yes, the above picture is of Love & Lavender’s own Meredith (far right), the eve before one of her friend’s wedding. Sorry, no professional photographers here, just a bunch of women in a hotel room the night before the big day. Let’s just say we got very little sleep that night.
9. The “Guess How Old” Game
This game is actually more sweet than silly. The bride creates a collage with photos of herself at different points throughout her life. While her guests ogle at her adorable baby and growing up pictures, they can also take a guess at how old they believe she was in each picture. Whoever guesses the most ages correctly wins a prize.
10. Wedding Crashers
What it is: This is a wedding twist on the game Mafia, which isn’t yet a thing (call me, Hasbro), but I’m making it one now because Mafia is hella fun and I’ll take any excuse to play it. This roleplaying game (read: no prep needed) of deception, mystery, and revelations (!) normally involves a moderator who designates part of the group to be mafiosos and part of the group to be innocents. Instead, we go with The Betrothed and Wedding Crashers. So clever, we know!
Rules: First, select a moderator. Then, everyone gets their designation as either Wedding Crasher or Betrothed by drawing cards (or straws, or however is easiest) secretly. Everyone closes their eyes. The officiant alerts all the Crashers to identify themselves to each other silently, and to pick a Betrothed’s wedding to crash. Then, everyone opens their eyes and the moderator announces whose wedding has been crashed. Players can then accuse anyone of being a Crasher and a vote is put to the group as for whether or not to “throw out” that person. Rounds continue until the Crashers are eliminated or until they take over the party by the majority.
Pros: No prep needed for this game, plus suspicion and mystery make for great gameplay.
11. Garter Toss
Give each player a cheap garter bridal shower games and set up sparkling cider bottles bridal shower games on the floor in front of them. The first player to toss, fling, or otherwise throw the garter and have it ring one of the sparkling cider bottles wins.
12. Desperate Housewives
Write down the names of husbands of famous married couples on index cards (e.g., Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban). Players have to pick a card then act out the WIFE (not the person on the card) in charade form (no words, just acting).
Go through as many as you can in one minute and the person who gets the most in a minute wins. Don’t you just love my little sister’s acting out of Blake Lively (star of Gossip Girl) and Nicole Kidman in Bewitched?
13. Bridal Shower Grog
What it is: This is less a game and more an excuse to get silly and tipsy. The real story: I had a grog-inspired activity at my wedding, and it was great.
Rules: In the military, there is a gag tradition at dinners and events called a grog ceremony, where they ceremoniously add liquors into a punch bowl, with each liquor representing something about the unit or troop (“Red wine for our time in France in World War II!” “Sake for our service in the Pacific Theatre!”) and then everyone toasts with it. It gets often a bit gross—but that’s the fun of it. At ours, the members of our wedding party each added one ingredient to the bowl and gave a mini-speech as to how that ingredient represented love, marriage, or their relationship with us, the couple. While we cheated, using a predetermined punch recipe for our wedding, you could stick with the hodgepodge juice approach for the bridal shower.
Prep: Ask all the guests at the party to bring a li’l something to contribute to the punch bowl, along with an explanation as to how it represents their relationship to the couple. (Note: A very little something, depending on how many guests you have.) Then, everyone toasts the couple! Some ingredient ideas: Champagne, because the bride’s got a bubbly personality. Aperol, because the honeymoon is in Milan. Kombucha, because the couple brews their own. Strawberries, because they’re an aphrodisiac.
Pros: Shared hardships, like drinking from a tub of unidentifiable booze together, bonds people. Also, who doesn’t like to play with their food (and drink!)? This puts a whole new twist on bridal shower games, for sure.
14. Receiving Line
This is best played as a team game. At one end of the room have a bowl filled with rice and on the other side of the room an empty cup or small jar. Teams must race to transfer the rice from the bowl, passing the rice hand to hand, to the other side of the room and into the small jar. The first team to fill the jar wins. This one makes one of the best wedding shower games since rice is such a big wedding tradition!
15. Save the Date
Before the party, ask the bride for a couple of important dates in her life (e.g., first date, first kiss, the date he proposed, his birthday). For this game, cut out the months of the year as well as the numbers 1 – 31 and have them sitting on a table.
For each round, tell the players that they have to be the first one to come up with the correct date by picking out a month and day and running it to show the bride. The bride tells them correct or earlier/later and they have to continue running back and forth from the table with the calendar dates to the bride until someone gets it correct. You can either do this once or a number of times with various dates.
