When it comes to the bridal shower, it can be a stressful ordeal to figure out how to keep your guests entertained while celebrating for your big day. So how do you pick which activities will be a hit with the crowd? Here are a few of our personal favorites from our own brides who threw successful bridal showers that will definitely get a few laughs!
Object: Get a bingo with wedding themed cards
How to Play: Create bingo cards, but replace the word BINGO with BRIDE along the top margin. Instead of numbers, list facts relevant to weddings or the married-couple-to-be inside each square. (Examples: where he proposed, location that they first met). Follow traditional bingo rules: the first guest to mark off a line horizontally, vertically or diagonally wins a prize.
Object: Whoever has the most unique items in their purse wins!
How to Play: Before the shower, create a list of standard items you might have in your purse — start with the basics (a compact, credit cards, keys) and work your way up to more random or risqué objects (condoms, dog treats). The host calls out the items on the list and the first guest to pull the object from their purse wins!
Wedding Rom-com Charades
Object: The rom-com version of charades.
How to Play: Create a list of classic wedding rom-com movies. Then split up the list amongst the two teams. Players pick a card from the pile and act out a scene from that film without speaking a word, while their team members try and guess the answer within a minute time limit!
Taste the Wedding Cake
Object: You get to try wedding cake possibilities and guess the flavors.
How to Play: Set up a cake bar complete with bite-sized cake pieces (mini cupcakes, cake pops or cut-up pieces of regular cakes) and know all of the flavors. Each player is blindfolded and walks down the table with one of the hosts, who notes the player’s flavor guess. The player takes sips of champagne between bites to cleanse the palette. Whoever guesses the most flavors correctly wins a prize!
