Bridal Shower Games

Fun bridal shower game ideas

Bridal shower games always play a big role in the bride-to-be's last night out with the girls. Depending on who is coming to your event, wedding shower games can range from tame and safe to wild and racy. If you're expecting a mixed age group or some guests on the conservative side, it's best to play it safe. That said, if the shower party is made up of an intimate group of friends, don't be afraid to let your hair down and have some fun with your bridal shower ideas.

Classic Bridal Shower Game Ideas

Icebreakers help get conversations started between guests who are meeting for the first time. Consider some of these classic bridal shower game ideas:

  • Two truths and a lie. Have each guest introduce herself and tell the group three things about herself: two of which are true and one of which is a lie. Have the other guests guess which one is a lie and give a prize to the guest who spotted the most lies.
  • The spice of life. This is a great game for parties with mixed age groups. Pass around bags of unmarked spices and have the guests smell them and guess which spice it is. Whoever gets the most right can keep the spices.
  • Toilet paper wedding dress. Split the guests up into two teams, and have one team member pose as the "bride." The other team member makes wedding gowns out of toilet paper by weaving it around her partner. Prizes can be awarded at the end for best (or worst, or most outrageous) dresses.
