If you’re planning the bride’s shower party, then this article is for you! We researched the most-played games at shower parties, and we’re sharing our favorite ones with you. Here they are…
Bride vs. Groom Trivia: Write down all the questions you can think of about the groom, and call him before the shower party to get the right answers. Then, ask the bride these questions and see how many she gets right. You can also ask guests these questions about both the bride and groom and see how well they know the bride and groom.
Look at the Bride: Prepare questions about things guests can physically observe about the bride, then type them on a piece of paper. Questions like, “What color is the bride's shirt?” “What color are the bride's shoes?” “What is the bride wearing?” “What color are the bride's eyes?” Let the bride stand in the center of the room for 30 seconds, and ask the guests to observe her. Then, have the bride leave the room and pass out the sheets with the questions and let everyone start jotting down their answers. Let the bride return to the room when the time is up and answer the questions with the bride's help.
Recipe Share: Not exactly a game, but something fun to discuss at the shower party. When inviting guests, let each one of them bring their favorite recipe to the shower. Have them right it on a piece of paper and give it to the bride. It’s a cute way to introduce her to different dishes she can make with the hubby.
A Video for the Memories: This is more about fun than it is about being a game, but it’s a shower party must-have! Set up a video camera and ask each guest to share a favorite memory of the bride and groom while recording themselves on camera! Make sure the camera is set up in a different room than the one the party is being held in, so that the bride and groom will get the DVD as a surprise!
Who Am I: Write down names of famous couples on cards, one name per card. Make sure you have at least one card for each guest. Then, tape one card on the back of each guest. Have each guest ask the other guests "yes or no" questions about whom they could be. Questions can be, "Am I a man?" "Have I been married before?" "Am I real or make believe?" The object of the game is to find whom the other half of your couple is. The couple that finds their better half first is the winner!
Toilet Paper Bride: Have your guests split up in to two teams. Each team picks one model to represent it. Supply each team with several rolls of toilet paper. The goal of this game is to outfit the model in toilet paper with everything a bride would need on her wedding day. The teams will need to make a toilet paper wedding dress, by wrapping the model in toilet paper and make a dress. The model will also need a veil and a headpiece!
