Bridal Shower Games... Something Different?

Recommended Posts

I am confident that all you creative ladies will have some suggestions for me. I am hosting a bridal shower for my sister in about three weeks and am trying to come up with some games that aren't standard (i.e., toilet paper bride, memory game etc)

 

They need to be for all ages young and old - we are about 30 people ... sitting at tables of 4-6 ppl.

 

I have already done a "how well does the bride know the groom" trivia where I asked her FI questions that she will have to answer.

 

Any suggestionshuh.gif??smile03.gif

To play on the "how well does the bride know the groom" - i video-taped his answers and played the video and paused after each question to make her answer - it was a HUGE hit!

 

-bridal shower bingo was a huge hit too, and made getting through present opening a lot easier (guests filled in a blank bingo card of what presents they thought she'd get.....as she opened presents they marked them off until getting a bingo)

 

-I also bought a bucket of household items, windex, sponges, air freshener, etc...and made the guests guess the total cost of all items. I gave the bucket to the bride as a present since they were just moving into a house and figure'd she'd need the supplies :)

 

-I found a few other cool ideas - one of them was getting pics of the bride at all different ages, and having people guess her age (her mom has to help with that).

 

-We also framed pictures of the bride & groom and asked people to guess how long they were dating when the pics were taken.

 

those are a few more ideas wink.gif

Awesome ideas Josie! I love the photo ideas - I am certainly going to steal those - and I am doing something similar with "guess the gumballs" since my sis is addicted to gumballs!

 

THANK YOU!

at my cousin's shower a few weeks ago we played Wedding Pictionary. The bridesmaids split us up into groups and had us pick wedding-themed items (walking the aisle, first dance, something blue, the garter, cutting the cake, etc.) to draw, it was pretty fun.

That sounds really fun! I'm just remembering that I went to a bridal shower where they played bridal balderdash - and there were all these different stories about the bride & groom (outrageous, funny, drunk stories, or just really funny moments) and the guests had to submit either one TRUE or FALSE....then we had to guess which ones ACTUALLY happened, and which were just made up.

It turned out really hilarious!

We played a game at my friends shower and it was fun because it was a male/female party and everyone was able to play even kids. You buy 5 gifts, out of those five gifts one is something thats funny like a toilet bowl scrubber. Everyone writes there names on 3 pieces of paper and you collect it in a bowl or bag. As the names are being called out they get to choose a gift until all the gifts were taken, then for the remainder of the game people steal each others gifts. So if the gift you want is already chosen you get to steal the gift from the person who has it. Wehad a blast b/c the person with the toilet bowl scrub pretty much had it for the whole game. Hope this makes sense, if not let me know I will try to explain it better.

    • Hey guys. New to the forum. I have a question. Need some advice. I booked my wedding through destinationweddings.. booked grand Bahia principe san juan in Puerto plata. Deposited and all that .. hired a photographer who is also a friend who is coming with my group along with his wife as guests.  I tell the resort because I wanted to clarify I dont really need the photographer that is included in my package I'm paying for.. They are now charging me 500 dollars for my photogrphaer / friend to take pictures on my wedding day even though him and his wife are both guests of the hotel for the whole 7 days. Has anyone heard of this before? Any advice how to get out of it I have fought with the resort wedding planner and the travel planner but i havent got anywhere so far.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm already spending 1500$ in extras, 1700 on package and bringing 24 guests for 7 days and me and hubby staying 10 days. I feel like they should not be charging me for this
    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
