Glad I could help.  My sister used to sell discovery toys (it’s a home based selling company like Avon) and she used a similar game as an icebreaker at parties.  I tried to adjust a lot of the questions to fit it being a bridal shower.

@ames12708:  You posted your example card while I was typing my response, so yes, now that I have read the example, I can see how it could work as a type of “bingo”  and it makes more sense.  The verbal description was confusing, and it’s hard to offer suggestions when you don’t fully understand how something will work.  I don’t think you are being entirely fair to the Bee’s who asked questions about the format.  I for one like to understand something before I answer.  I am sure others feel the same.

I am sure with 80 guests present, you can come up with at least one question regarding each guest and how they tie to you and your Fiance and your families. (Sorry if these were already mentioned, I can’t remember them all)

What year did Bride/Groom gradute

What was his/her college major

What did B/G want to be when they grew up.

What was B/G favourite movie as a child

Where did B/G go on their first date

What instrument does/did the B/G play

What food does the B/G refuse to eat

Who introduced the B/G

Who did the B/G first tell about the G/B

Who said “I love you” first

What was the B&G first song they danced to

What was B/G first broken bone

My only concern would be if there may be more than one answer to some questions (who was in the room when B/G were born etc), and someone has to vet the cards before announcing a winner. 

Best of luck at your shower, I hope you enjoy it!

@nikkialys:  These are good ones, and less specific, but harder to audit on a bingo card for a win maybe?

I’m sorry that Im not much help but I really like the idea and I would have fun playing this game… Just a word of advice is to make sure all the questions have answers… Like if you ask to find someone who has been married 30+ years… Then someone should be there who has been married that long… I’m sure you already knew that though… Also I find that older people leave these parties early so you may want to hand out the bingo card early so there’s a lot of time to play

@Take The Reins:  That’s why I suggested doing a trivia game and an icebreaker game seperately.  It seems like it would save the OP a lot of trouble to just choose between one or the other.

I love this idea! It’s harder then I thought it would be to come up with some questions!

-Find someone who knew the bride/groom at age ____ 

-What’s the bride’s favourite song?

-Find someone who brought ____ with them to the shower (a gift/food/something in their purse)

-Find someone who drives the same color car as the bride

-What is the groom’s grandma’s name?

-How does Bride like her coffee?

-Find someone who was at Bride’s high school graduation.

-What is the bride’s favourite book?

-Where did the bride and groom go on their last date?

-What are the colors for the wedding?

This sounds like a fun game! I went to a bridal shower where we had some of those “find someone who….” related to the bride, and there were other questions like “find someone who grew up in Alaska” or “find someone with 2 children”, so that other guests could get to know each other. It was nice to have some questions related to the bride and groom, and some related to helping the guests find common topics for conversation! I hope you have a beautiful shower!

@ames12708:  I wish I could play. Lol I’m gonna brainstorm some questions for you. Im not very good at this stuff but I really like nikkialys suggestion about trying to find someone in the room who has the same favorite food as you or has your same middle name (if its common) etc. I think that doing it that way will still have the game revolve around you but the guests will have to walk around and talk to people.

I guess I am confused when the people throwing the shower told you no one likes going to showers and playing games….why you would then decide to play a game? Clearly logic isn’t ruling right now. And I suppose I am a ” bad Bee” now for saying that, but c’mon.
