The only one I know about for mine so far is that everyone is bringing a pair of underwear for me and I have to try and match the pair with the guest who brought it. So my Maid/Matron of Honor will mix them up and I will see if I can guess who brought which one. It will be funny because I know some of my friends and family will bring wild ones to try and throw me off.

I like the game of who knows the bride or couple the best! That one is fun because I get very competitive and hope that I know the most about them! lol

Does drinking mimosas count as an activity?

Honestly, I think shower games are not neccessary.

Let your guests mingle, enjoy the food and drink and watch the bride open the gifts.

I find the “need” to entertain guests unneccessary.

As a guest at a shower, I’m perfectly content to chit-chat with others, eat and drink the provided food and watch the bride. Short and sweet.

At my friend’s shower we played pin the tattoo on the groom. It involved a life size poster print of him shirtless, with copies of his tattoo for people to pin on while blindfolded. 😋

Frankly, I’ve always enjoyed the toilet paper bridal gown contest too. It gets pretty ridiculous.

Bridal taboo…the showers I attend usually have competitive people. Also not sure why people like this but pass the boquet..kinda like musical chairs but with a boquet… Seems childish but ladies seem to like it..lol

I had a couple for my sister’s bridal shower that I felt were fun and different. One was sort of an easter egg hunt except using plastic diamonds from the dollar store. I hid them around in somewhat obvious places, but also in tougher spots (behind a picture frame, etc.) and at first I am sure everyone assumed they were part of the decor. Then I announced it was a hunt and whoever found the most would win a prize! They were like 6 year olds hunting down chocolate eggs haha.

I aldo did a ‘guess how many days since their first date’ because they have been together for 13 years so it was a tough one to do quick accurate math for unless you actually knew how long it had been and when they started seeing each other. One girl guessed within 8 days! (The total was 4,708!). This was a good one because they could write their guess down whenever they had a chance and add it to the mason jar instead of having to pay attention to a silly game.

I also did two more classic games, how well do you know the bride, and then a famous couple game where you write the corresponding partner with the female counterpart, but I found them annoying personally haha. I just know games are expected and they were kind of fun in a way for killing time I guess!

We did bridal shower bingo to make the gift-opening portion more interactive. Some of the ladies really got into it. My great-aunt kept trying to cheat. 🙂

My Mother-In-Law also organized a mixer/icebreaker-type game. When people walked in, they were handed a card with name. Each name was half of a famous couple (like Fred/Wilma or Brad/Angelina) and you had to find your “other half” and then turn in the cards for new ones. Whoever got the most matches won. Our guests seemed to enjoy it, and it helped people socialize since our guests came from many different social/family groups.

You could also just watch a funny wedding-related movie together like, “Bridesmaids” or “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” while people chomp on appetizers and drink mimosas!

I also always enjoyed the toilet paper brodal gown game. I had it at my shower and it seemed everyone enjoyed themselves.

ucsadie:  There’s no need for games, especially if none of them sound too fun to you. My SIL’s bridal shower was a nice brunch where we all sat, ate, talked, and opened gifts and presents. SIL told her proposal story. My best friend’s is tonight and I know there will be games… I’ll come back and post if there are any good ones!

I hate, hate, HATE bridal shower games.  Before going forward with one, make sure the bride actually wants them.  I think they’re horribly awkward and uncomfortable, and do my best to avoid participating in them.
