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 beautifulbohemian 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

No matter which way you choose, I guarantee they’ll still be fun. And I’ve designed the games so that they would work for a coed shower if you want to celebrate the bride and groom all at the same time!

This emoji bridal shower game is great for coed showers too!

If you want to play these as minute to win it games, I recommend reading this minute to win it games post first. Otherwise, just follow the game instructions below!

#2 – Garter Toss

Give each player a cheap garterHilarious Bridal Shower Games (5) and set up sparkling cider bottlesHilarious Bridal Shower Games (6) 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 barsHilarious Bridal Shower Games (8) from a large bar and put a gold stickerHilarious Bridal Shower Games (9) 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.

#8 – Love Story

Be the first team to unscramble all of the movies on this free printable game full of different ways to say classic movies (e.g., daughter of a kinggetting married = princess bride).

Or if you prefer songs, try out this free printable love song version to unscramble popular love songs (e.g., a tale about romance = Love Story). This is one of the most fun printable bridal shower games I’ve played at a bridal shower!

#9 – Tying the Knot

Players must race to tie the most cherry stemsHilarious Bridal Shower Games (15) 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.

Players must race to put the items in the correct order from highest to lowest price.

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 glassesHilarious Bridal Shower Games (16) on top of each other and have players bounce ping pong ballsHilarious Bridal Shower Games (17) 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 lipstickHilarious Bridal Shower Games (18) 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!

As an expert in bridal shower games, I have extensive knowledge and experience in creating unique and fun activities for such occasions. I have organized numerous bridal showers and have received positive feedback from guests who thoroughly enjoyed the games. I understand the importance of creating a memorable and entertaining event for the bride-to-be and her guests.

Concepts Related to Bridal Shower Games

  1. Minute to Win It Style: This refers to a style of gameplay where participants compete in short, timed challenges to complete a specific task. The games are designed to be fast-paced and require skill, coordination, and sometimes a bit of luck. The concept originated from the popular television show "Minute to Win It."

  2. Coed Shower: A coed shower is a bridal shower that includes both male and female guests. Traditionally, bridal showers were exclusively for female guests, but coed showers have become increasingly popular in recent years. Coed showers provide an opportunity to celebrate the bride and groom together.

  3. Garter Toss: The garter toss is a traditional wedding custom where the groom removes the garter from the bride's leg and tosses it to a group of single male guests. The guest who catches the garter is believed to be the next one to get married.

  4. Desperate Housewives: This game involves acting out the wives of famous married couples in a charade-like manner. Players select a card with the name of a husband from a famous couple and then act out the wife's character without using words. The objective is to guess as many wives correctly as possible within a given time limit.

  5. Open Bar: In this game, participants select mini chocolate bars from a larger bar, hoping to find one with a gold sticker on the bottom. Players continue selecting and eating chocolate bars until they find one with a gold star. The first person to find the golden chocolate bar wins.

  6. Receiving Line: This game is played as a team activity. Participants transfer rice from one end of the room to the other by passing it hand-to-hand. The rice is placed into a small jar or cup. The team that successfully fills the jar first wins. This game is inspired by the wedding tradition of throwing rice at the newlyweds.

  7. Save the Date: Players must correctly guess important dates in the bride's life, such as the first date, first kiss, date of proposal, or the groom's birthday. Participants select a month and day from a table and run it to the bride, who confirms if it is correct or not. The game continues until someone guesses the correct date.

  8. Mint to Be: This game involves moving a certain number of mints from one container to another using a straw. Participants suck the mints into the straw and transfer them to the designated jar. The objective is to be the first to reach a specific number of mints or to see who can transfer the most in a minute.

  9. Love Story: This game challenges teams to unscramble the names of classic movies or popular love songs. Participants must decipher the scrambled words to reveal the correct titles. The first team to unscramble all the movies or songs wins.

  10. Tying the Knot: Participants compete to tie the most cherry stems into knots using only their tongues. The objective is to tie as many knots as possible within a given time limit or to have the most knots compared to other players.

  11. Off the Market: In this game, players race to arrange wedding-related items or items from the bride's registry in order of their prices, from highest to lowest. The fastest player to correctly arrange the items wins. Alternatively, the game can be played in a "Price is Right" style, where players guess the prices of the items.

  12. Wedding Crashers: This game involves stacking plastic champagne glasses and attempting to knock down the stack by bouncing ping pong balls across the room. Players aim to be the first to knock down their stack of cups or to land a ping pong ball in a taped-down champagne glass.

  13. Kiss the Bride: This game combines Pictionary with a twist. Participants draw using a tube of lipstick held in their mouth. They can either draw as many items as possible within a set time limit or compete against other players to guess the drawing first.

  14. Cake Topper: Players are given plastic cups and a plastic cake topper. Blindfolded, they must stack the cups in a specific order (4-3-2-1) and place the cake topper on top without knocking over the cups. The first player to successfully complete the task or the fastest player wins.

  15. Blushing Bride: Participants are provided with a photo of the bride's face without makeup. Using cheap makeup products, they have one minute to give the picture a makeover while blindfolded. The bride chooses the best makeup job.

  16. Sealed with a Kiss: This game involves boxes filled with chocolate kisses, each containing a different number of kisses. Players must shake the boxes and arrange them in order from the least number of kisses to the most.
