Perfect Games for Blushing Brides
fun, simple, well planned game can be a great icebreaker, put people at ease, create a little laughter, and keep guests entertained while the bride-to-be is opening her gifts.
You can save time and money by choosing printable options or customize your choices to fit any theme. And, if you are tired of the typical, you can add a fun twist to traditional or popular games to make your bridal shower entertainment a little more creative and exciting.
No wedding shower would be complete without bridal shower games, but choosing the right ones is not always an easy task. After all, you don't want guests cringing when you pull out your box of pencils or newspaper wrapped prizes.
The Purse Game. This game is always a great choice because it is easy to play and does not require guests to do anything uncomfortable or embarrassing, although you could add a few more personal items to your list if you know your crowd would appreciate the humor. Simply comprise a list of items that you would expect to find in a lady's purse and assign a point value to each object. These could include such things as nail clippers, a specific color of lipstick, credit cards, blue pen, or hair brush. You may also want to include less typical items like pepper spray, toothbrush, flashlight, tape measure, bra, or even a form of birth control.
Guess the Price. Assemble a basket of typical household or grocery items and ask guests to guess the price of each item, and then tally the amount. The person or team with the total closest to the actual amount wins. With a little more time and some extra creativity, you could even turn this into your own version of The Price Is Right.
Name that Spice. Add a little flavor to your kitchen-themed shower by creating a tray of various herbs and spices. Ask guests to identify each item and discover which lady is the most “seasoned” chef. You may even want to put each spice in a sealable container and award them as the winning prize.
Cook-Off. This is a great activity for a kitchen shower and will keep guest busy the entire afternoon or evening. Assemble an assortment of ingredients, divide guests into teams, and ask them to create their own recipes. Each team can have the same ingredients or you can vary the items so you have a variety of masterpieces. Of course, the bride-to-be will be the judge, determining which team wins this Great Wedding Cook-Off. Remember to ask everyone to write down their 'recipe' as they go along so they can pass on any successful creations. If you do not have enough space in your home, many supermarkets rent rooms with large kitchen facilities.
A simpler, but equally fun, alternative is to have a wedding cake decorating contest. The cakes can be made ahead of time and teams can work to come up with the most beautiful, extravagant, or outrageous, cake design.
Bride and Groom Trivia. Test your guests knowledge of the wedding couple by asking them questions about how the bride and groom met, where they went on their first date, where the groom proposed, the bride's first summer job, or favorite foods. You can even add a twist by asking the groom a list of questions ahead of time and then testing the bride to see how well she knows her soon-to-be husband.
