Not a fan of bridal shower games that make your 12 year old sister’s eyes get big?
Here is a list of 9 entertaining bridal shower games that are safe to play with all ages!
Display 5 baby photos of the bride and 5 baby photos of the groom. Give your guests a piece of paper and a pencil and have them vote/guess who is in the photos. Have them “grade” their own papers. Winner gets a gift.
This gets really fun when you play it like bingo.
ROM COM QUOTES
Super easy! Give a copy of the game worksheet to each guest and have them fill out as many movies as they recognize. The most points wins.
(Answers: 1. New Moon; 2. Notting Hill; 3. City of Angels; 4. The Notebook; 5. Dirty Dancing; 6. Say Anything; 7. Jerry Maguire)
LOVE SONGS – WHO SANG IT
Every guest gets a paper… Play 12 songs from your phone and they have to write down who sang it.
Here is my list of songs so you don’t have to make one…
I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston
My Girl by The Temptations
I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing by Aerosmith
Love Story by Taylor Swift
You’re Still The One by Shania Twain
We Found Love by Rihanna and Calvin Harris
Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis
I Wanna Know What Love Is by Foreigner
Cheerleader by OMI

Bless The Broken Road by Rascal Flatts
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye
BONUS – The Power of Love by Celine Dion
Print out the 50 wedding related phrases below. Cut them up, stick them in a jar and pass them around. A guest pulls a word out of the jar and has to describe the word without saying anything on the paper. (Ex: if the phrase is “bridal shower” the person can’t describe it by saying “shower” or “bridal”.) Once the phrase is guessed, it’s the next person’s turn.
Bride & groom
Walk down the aisle
From this day forward
Husband and wife
To have and to hold
Love at first sight
In sickness and in health
Happily ever after
Taking the plunge
From this moment
Here comes the bride
Going to the chapel
Maid of honor
Toss the bouquet
Cutting the cake
Father of the bride
Mother of the groom
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride
Pop the question
The big day
Tie the knot
FAVORITE MEMORY OF US
Guests write their favorite memories on these cards. The bride reads them and has to guess which guest wrote which memory. This is a fun keepsake for the bride!

VOW MAD LIBS
Ask the guests for words and fill in this mad lib letter to the bride! Have the bride’s maid of honor read it out loud to everyone!
“We are [adjective] for [bride’s name] and [groom’s name]. The are the most [adjective] [plural noun] and we wish them nothing less than [adjective] [noun] for the rest of their lives together. My best advice? Don’t forget to [advice] before you [verb] and [advice] after the [noun]. We wish you [number] years of happiness and [adjective] [noun]!! Just a reminder, the secret to marital bliss is to always [verb] [adjective]! Love you, [your name].”
A CUSTOMIZED POEM
Get a pen and a blank sheet of paper. Starting on one side of the room, as a guest to write one line of a romantic poem dedicated to the bride and groom. Then, fold the paper down so that the next guest can’t see what is written. The next guest also writes a line…it continues this way until the paper gets all the way around the room!
You will end up with a disjointed, hilariously un-rhymed poem for the couple! Read it in your most theatrical voice!
TELEPHONE WEDDING TOAST
This is a twist on the classic telephone game! Have the first guest whisper a well wish that they have for the bride to the next guest (something like “I hope you both eat a lot of chocolate every day”). As each guest whispers it to the next guest the phrase will change and you will end up with something so silly!
