A bridal shower is an important ritual in the wedding planning process. Spice up the party with printable shower games showcasing your guest’s knowledge of the bride and groom. Whether the games are thought-provoking or hilarious, use a few action-packed activities to shower the bride with your well wishes as she prepares for her walk down the aisle.

Bridal Shower Bingo

Featuring words associated with weddings like honeymoon or ceremony, bridal bingo tests your knowledge of weddings. Print out a list of 50 words related to the wedding for the bingo caller to use. Cut each of these words individually. Place them into a hat. Pass out bridal bingo cards (see resources below) with the wedding-themed words placed five rows across and five rows down. When playing the game, follow the traditional bingo process, calling out a single wedding term, until a guest completes a line diagonally, vertically or horizontally.

Know the Bride Game

This game tests each party participant’s knowledge of the bride. Separate the guests into two teams. Print out a list of the questions about the bride (see resources below). Have the maid of honor call out the questions to the teams. After answering the list of questions, the team who knows the most facts about the bride wins.

What’s In Your Purse Game

Print out a list of items typically found in a woman’s handbag (see resources below). Pass out the list to each bridal shower guest. Award each guest a point for each item on the list that matches the content in her purse. For example: one or two points for lipstick, compact or tissues. The guest with the most points wins.
