The Best Bridal Shower Games

These bridal shower games are ones I put together for my little sister’s bohemian bridal shower , right before her beautiful bohemian wedding ! We’ve always been a creative and game playing family, so I wanted to come up with bridal shower games that people had never played before!

I was right.

These games are ones that no one in the room had ever played before! And I dare say, it was the best bridal shower ever.

We paired these fun bridal shower games with this printable bridal shower game called love story and had one incredible afternoon.

People are still talking about how fun these games were! And about my gift for my sister – these date night cards (one date for every week of the year!)

How to Play

All of these games can either be played minute to win it style or just pick and choose a couple of games from the list to play with your guests. If you’re looking for something less active, you might want to check out these bridal shower

Hilarious Bridal Shower Games

I’ve included 16 different bridal shower games that incorporate something wedding related. Pick your favorites and go with those.

Fill a bowl with candy fruit rings bridal shower games and give your player a chopstick bridal shower games.

#2 – Garter Toss

Give each player a cheap garter bridal shower games and set up sparkling cider bottles bridal shower games on the floor in front of them. First player to toss, fling, or otherwise throw the garter and have it ring one of the sparkling cider bottles wins.

#3 – Desperate Housewives

Write down the names of husbands of famous married couples on index cards (e.g., Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban). Players have to pick a card then act out the WIFE (not the person on the card) in charade form (no words, just acting).

Go through as many as you can in one minute and person who gets the most in a minute wins. Don’t you just love my little sister’s acting out of Blake Lively (star of Gossip Girl) and Nicole Kidman in Bewitched?

Game Tip!

Make your list based on the guests attending the party. If it’s multi-generational, I recommend sticking to very famous people, not just younger generation ones!

#4 – Open Bar

Before the party, pick out a couple of mini chocolate bars bridal shower games from a large bar and put a gold sticker bridal shower games on the bottom. Then lay them all out in either lines or in a group flat on a surface.

To play the game, players must pick one mini candy bar and if there’s not a gold sticker, eat it. Players have to continue picking candy bars and eating them until they find one with a gold star.

#5 – Receiving Line

This is best played as a team game. At one end of the room have a bowl filled with rice and on the other side of the room an empty cup or small jar. Teams must race to transfer the rice from the bowl, passing the rice hand to hand, to the other side of the room and into the small jar.

First team to fill the jar wins. This one makes one of the best wedding shower games since rice is such a big wedding tradition!

#6 – Save the Date

Before the party, ask the bride for a couple of important dates in her life (e.g., first date, first kiss, date he proposed, his birthday). For this game, cut out the months of the year as well as the numbers 1 – 31 and have them sitting on a table.

For each round, tell the players that they have to be the first one to come up with the correct date by picking out a month and day and running it to show the bride.

The bride tells them correct or earlier/later and they have to continue running back and forth from the table with the calendar dates to the bride until someone gets it correct.

You can either do this once or a number of times with various dates.

#9 – Tying the Knot

Players must race to tie the most cherry stems bridal shower games into knots as they can with their tongue, either in a minute, or compared to their competitors. This is one of the games that would work as great bachelorette party games too!

#10 – Off the Market

Purchase a handful of wedding related items or items off the bride’s registry (and give them to the bride after) and make sure you know exactly how much each one costs.

Either time them and see who can do it in under a minute or see who can do it the fastest, no matter how long it takes.

Either way, I’d let someone do it first and then have the other player come in next so they don’t get any hints.


You could also play this game Price is Right style instead! Have people guess who much each of the wedding related items is an the person who is the closest without going over wins a point – most points wins a prize!

#11 – Wedding Crashers

Stack plastic champagne glasses bridal shower games on top of each other and have players bounce ping pong balls bridal shower games across the room to see who can knock down their stack of cups first.

Alternately, you could tape down one champagne glass per player and have players try to be the first to bounce a ping pong and land it in the cup.

#12 – Kiss the Bride

This is a game of pictionary where the person drawing is doing so with a tube of lipstick bridal shower games that they can only hold in their mouth.

You can do this one of two ways – either have one person draw and try to go through as many as they can in a set amount of time like a minute or you can have multiple people trying to draw the same thing to get their team to guess first.

Either way is hilarious. And this one is at the top of my own personal bridal shower games list!


Check Dollar Tree or another dollar store for cheap lipstick that you don’t mind getting ruined. Or ask friends and family if they have any they no longer wear – just sanitize it beforehand!
