Easy Bridal Shower Games that are Actually Fun
Worried about finding entertaining games for the bridal shower you’re hosting? Fear not! These simple games are easy and will put your guests at ease.
The best thing about being the bride at a shower? All the swag, of course. Now you can benefit from the bride’s haul by playing a round of gift bingo. Each guest can fill out their own bingo cards with the gifts they think the bride is most likely to receive.
What’s In Your Purse?
When you need easy bridal shower games, this one should top the list. For once, you have an advantage to not cleaning out your purse! For those of us prone to carrying “Mary Poppins” bags with anything and everything contained inside, this game is an easy win. Provide a checklist and accompanying points and the gal with the highest tally wins a prize.
A childhood favorite, Mad Libs are great for a bridal shower icebreaker, because they aren’t embarrassing or over-the-top. Partner with another guest, fill out the form, and the funniest result wins!
Mingle to Win!
Bridal showers often bring together groups of people who haven’t met before. Encourage work friends to get to know high school pals by playing this questionnaire-style game. Pretty soon everyone will be amazed by Aunt Jean’s lottery win and your mom’s thirty years of marriage. We bet you’ll even learn a thing or two about your own nearest and dearest!
For easy bridal shower games, don’t make things more complicated than they need to be. Rely on classic icebreakers like “Two Truths and a Lie” or create simple trivia questions about the bride.
The Newlywed Game
This version of “The Newlywed Game” requires the groom’s participation ahead of time on a questionnaire. Or, if you are hosting a co-ed shower, this can be a fun game for everyone to join in on together.
When it’s a beautiful day, why not take the party outside? Spend the afternoon playing lawn games, sipping lemonade, and thoroughly dominating your opponents. You can make it casual, or turn it into a tournament-style competition, depending on your crowd.
