Every bridal shower I’ve been too has always played bridal bingo. But, I love it! I’ve also been to a few where they make a questionaire about the bride and/or couple and see how well the people in attendance know the bride or couple.

I love the Marshmellow game! You get a bag of small (or big if you want it to be extra funny) mashmellows, and make a quiz of 25 questions for the groom. You have him answer all of them, and you then read the questions for the bride. Every one she gets wrong, she has to put a marshmellow in her mouth and hold it there until the quiz is done! It’s a little silly but gives the bride a game to play too! Also, make sure some of the questions are just goofy so that it’ll be almost impossible to get them right! Good luck!

I really don’t like, “How well do you know the bride?!” games because I’ve been going to showers for my husband’s friends’ girls.  I can tell eveyone about partying with the bride and all her answers to never-have-I-ever, but I always feel left out of “What street did she grow up on?” 

I really like games that involve dress-up and things.  The toilet paper bride is always a good one. 

March is perfect for a May wedding.  Have you picked a theme? I recommend coming up with a short list of brainstorms and asking the bride what she would like the theme to be and work from there.

I hated this game at the bridal shower that I went to but mainly because I screwed myself over.

You by a roll of string and everyone that comes in needs to choose and cut a piece of string.  Then as soon as the party starts everyone has to introduce themselves.  They take their string and begin to wrap it around their finger and they have to keep talking until the string is completley wrapped around their finger. 

I hated this game because I thought was something like “biggest string wins” and my string was literally about 3 feet long 🙁

This might seem a bit lame, but the guests loved it.  When I was opening gifts, a BM had a timer going (set at about 5-7 minutes) and when the timer goes off, whoever gave the gift I was opening got to pick a prize.  I was told that the guests loved it because they didn’t have to get up and do something.  Also, the prizes my MOH got were awesome, she got the nice soaps and lotions from Bath and Body and real potted flowers.
