Games People Play

Most of the women who attend a bridal shower have at least one thing in common: they are all there to celebrate the bride get ready for her wedding. When you have that many women, some whom may be meeting for the first time, bridal shower games are the way to go because not only do they get conversation started, they can also help increase the enjoyment of the party.

Three good bridal shower games to get your party guests talking include:

Eat & Tell - Set up a buffet and for each food item type on the table, label them with different topics such as high school, college, first kiss - etc. For each food type a person has on their plate, they have to reveal something with regard to the topic mention (e.g. tell the story of their first kiss, what was their favorite activity in high school and what did they want to be when they were college, etc.)

Play Detective - as guests arrive, give them a note card with the name of another guest. The goal of the game is to discover fun events, information and stories about that person without actually talking to them. It can be hard, especially if some of the guests don't know each other, but it can be fun to discover one anecdote about the person on their card.

Old Fashioned Truth or Dare (Sans the Dare) - Let everyone have a drink and some snacks and gather them in a circle either in a comfortable area or around a table. For this bridal shower game, the idea is to have fun and laugh, not to really embarrass anyone or reveal deep dark secrets. Some great questions to get the game started are:

  • Describe one of your most embarrassing moments.
  • If you were a character in Veggie-Tales, what vegetable would you be and why?
  • If you could describe yourself in one word, what word would that be?
  • Cast yourself in a Disney movie - who would you be and why?
  • Can you answer the question: 'how many hairs are there on Chewbacca?'
  • Do you have a tattoo? What is it?
  • What's the goofiest thing you've ever done at work?
