Fun Interactive Bridal Shower Games

I have found over the years that when choosing bridal shower games it is IMPORTANT to pick games that include the whole group and focus more on fun than individual talent.

wedding shower games

Games of chance and relationship building games tend to go over better than games that require a particular skill.

Of course, it all depends on your guest list. (There are times when the latter games work well also.)

Below are some bridal shower games and activities you can use to add fun and lasting memories to your next wedding shower.

Some will make you laugh. Some will make you sigh. And if you're the sentimental type, a few may even make you cry as you reminisce about the years and events that led the couple to this special day.

Printable Bridal Shower Games

Coed Wedding Shower Games

Bridal Puzzle

Get a copy of the bride's engagement photo or any other fun picture of the husband and wife to be. Have it blown up to the size of a sheet of paper at a copy store or on someone's computer. Make as many copies as you want teams.

Instructions for this game can be found on our baby shower games page under the title Baby Puzzle. (Just replace everything noted as 'baby' with 'bridal couple'.) 

Pack Rat Paradise Handbag Scavenger Hunt

It is incredible how much stuff some women can carry in their purses and pockets. Find the ultimate pack rat at your next bridal shower by composing a list of everyday things and more obscure things that you might find in a woman's purse or pockets. 

Assign each item a point value and copy a list for each guest (or each team if you decide to play the game in teams). Set a time limit and let the search begin. The individual or team with the most points wins. 

Note: Make your own list or use our printable version of the Pack Rat Paradise Game 

To view this printable page, you will need Adobe Reader installed on your computer (the latest version is recommended). 

You can get your free Adobe Reader here (a new window will open so you can download without leaving this page). 

Who Am I?

Send a 3x5 card to each of your guests along with their bridal shower invitation. 

Instruct them to type out a memory they have shared with the bride without including their name.

At the shower, have the bride read the cards aloud and guess who each was written by.

Imagine the nostalgic atmosphere it will create.

Note: The cards would fit nicely into one of those small photo albums and make a lovely keepsake for the bride. 

Back to Back Memory Game

Back to Back challenges your observation skills and is a fun game to play at a shower or any other gathering. 

Bridal Shower Bingo

Make blank bingo cards, replacing the word 'bingo' with 'BRIDE' and indicating a free space in the center. Before the bride begins opening her gifts, pass out the cards and have your guests write down (one item per square) things that might be in the packages. As the bride opens her gifts, participants can cross off items on their cards that match. First guest to get a 'bingo' (or 'bride' in this instance) wins! 

Printable Bingo Cards 

There is another fun bingo style game on our Party Games Page called Handbag Bingo. It is a unique variation and a lot of fun. 

How Well Do You Know the Bride? 

beautiful bride

Hand out the quiz, "How Well Do You Know Me?" to each of your guests and the Bride-to-Be. Have the bride fill in her answers at the same time as the guests. When everyone has completed the quiz, ask the Bride to read her answers. The guest with the most answers matching the bride's wins! 

Note: Some questions will be easier to answer by friends and some easier to answer by family. Ultimately, though, you're looking for the person who knows the bride best. 

If you would prefer a multiple choice bridal quiz try How Well Do You Know the Bride? 

Bridal Captions Game

Gather a good selection of pictures of your Guest of Honor and mount them (one per page) in a scrap book. Pass the book around throughout the evening and have your guests write captions under, above or around the photos. 

Alternate Idea: Have each guest bring a recent photo of themselves to mount in the scrapbook. Ask them to mount their photos and write words of wisdom, sayings, advice or anything else that comes to mind around these photos throughout the evening. The completed book will make a cherished keepsake and be a lasting record of all those who attended the shower. 

Bridal History

Have each of your guests bring one wedding photograph. This may be their own wedding photo, their parents' wedding photo, their grandparents' wedding photo or the wedding photo of another relative or friend. 

Create a numbered list to give to each of your guests. 

As the guests arrive place their photos on a table or some other flat surface where you can put a number below each one. (Don't write on or place anything on the photos themselves. You don't want to damage them.) 

When all of your guests have arrived give each one a numbered list and have them guess the year each wedding took place.
