When planning a bachelorette or bridal shower, one of the most exciting things to plan is the games! We’ve rounded up our top 12 favorite games to play at your upcoming bridal party. They are sure to be a hit and get everyone laughing!
21 Questions is a great game to play with your bridal party. It’s very similar to Truth or Dare, but it has a lot more structure and doesn’t require you to be daring (unless you want to!).
The basic idea of 21 Questions is that one person asks another person 21 questions, and they have to answer them truthfully. The catch? The first person can only ask yes/no questions—no “why”s allowed!
Here are some ideas for questions:
- What’s the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?
- Has anyone ever told you that they love your smile?
- When did you first realize that [bride] would make an awesome wife for [groom]?
Truth or Dare
Truth or dare is a classic game that can be played by anyone of any age. The objective is to ask your friend a question, which they either have to answer truthfully or do something silly (dare). It’s a great way to get to know each other, and it’s also an excellent way to get to know the bride and her bridesmaids!
For example: If one person dares another person, they have to make out with them for 5 seconds. If someone asks another person something that is too personal or embarrassing, then he/she has two options: answer honestly or take off an item of clothing until their clothes are entirely removed. This game isn’t just for adults though—children love playing this too!
THE WEDDING DATE GAME
The Wedding Date Game is simple but super fun! Your wedding date game will be like this:
- You’ll need a piece of paper and pen for each player.
- You’ll need to write phrases like “Your favorite thing about your partner” on one side for the bride, and “Your partner’s favorite thing about you” on the other side for the groom (or vice versa).
- Don’t tell anyone what they’re writing! It’s a guess-and-check sort of game. The Bride & Groom must sit back to back, facing away from each other so that only their backs are visible from either side of them. They must then write down something personal about themselves that no one else in the room would know—and it has to be something real, not made up!
The Snatch Game
I have always thought this was the best bridal party game to play. It is played with two teams, and each team takes turns answering questions about the bride and groom. The team that answers the most questions correctly wins!
The questions are usually about:
- The bride’s wedding dress
- Where the couple met
- Things they have in common (such as their favorite food)
Is it the Bride or the Bridesmaid?
Is it the bride or the bridesmaid? is a classic game that can be played with any number of people. The rules are simple: You get to see two outfits, one on each girl in your party, and your job is to guess which one belongs to whom.
The key here is that you need to know what your friend’s taste is like so you can figure out if she’d wear something stylish yet comfortable or frilly and full of sparkles (or something else entirely!). This game will help you figure out whether or not these friends are alike—and how much they know about each other’s style preferences!
Dress Up Relay Race
One bride, one bridesmaid and one maid of honor are needed for this game. The bride wears a wedding dress and the two other women each wear a dress or skirt. The bridesmaid and maid of honor each wear a veil as well.
The bridal party lines up at the starting line in single file with the bride at the front and each guest wearing a veil (or hat) on her head so that she cannot be seen by anyone else in line behind her. At the start signal from your officiant/celebrant/party hostess, all three women begin walking toward their goal: tag teaming an unsuspecting victim (someone who isn’t part of your group) without getting caught!
This is an easy game because it requires no skill—just speed! Each player tries to reach her goal first; but if another player tags someone else before she reaches hers, then that person becomes “it” instead (and you can keep playing until everyone’s had enough).
Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Game
Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Game: This is a great game to play with your bridal party and guests. You will need 2 rolls of toilet paper, one for each team. The goal is for each team to make it look like the other teams’ wedding dress is covered in toilet paper by using only the TP that they have on their own person!
This game can be played with or without a wedding dress, with or without an actual bathroom, and with or without toilet paper (if you don’t want to use real TP). It’s an easy way to get everyone involved in something silly while also strengthening bonds among friends and family members!
The Newlywed Game
The Newlywed Game is a classic game that can be played with your bridal party, or even on its own. This game involves two people who are not related to each other and have just gotten married (or will be married soon). The bride-to-be and groom-to-be should sit next to each other, blindfolded. A person from the bridal party will ask them questions about themselves and their relationship. The newlyweds answer these questions from memory, without using any notes or gadgets. This game is sure to bring laughter in any environment! It’s also super fun for guests at weddings because it gives them a chance to learn about their future spouses before they walk down the aisle!
The Shoe Game
The Shoe Game
- A large room, preferably with lots of furniture to make it easier for people to maneuver
- A blindfold for each person in the party (you can make these out of a bandana and some tape, or buy some at the dollar store)
- Enough chairs for everyone in your party.
Have everyone put on a blindfold and walk around the room several times until they’re familiar with their surroundings. Then have them sit down and take off their shoes before blindly walking around again! Once they’ve done that, have them sit back down while you collect all of the shoes together in one place so no one knows whose is whose. Then ask each person to guess whose shoe they think is closest by placing it next to his own pair (if he wants to). Then give away prizes for whoever guessed correctly first or most often!
GUESS THE VEIL!
- How to play:
- Each person will sit in a circle.
- The bride-to-be is in the middle.
- She puts on her veil and then takes it off.
- Then she passes it around the circle, letting each person feel it briefly before putting it back on her face and taking it off again.
- How to win: You must guess which veil is hers! The veil should be made of silk or satin, so look for something soft that feels different from cotton or woolen materials. It’s also a good idea to make sure that your friend wears makeup so you can tell whether those are her real lashes underneath all those veils!
Pin the Ring on the Finger
The game is played using a ring, a blindfold and a poster. The participants take turns blindfolded and try to pin the ring on the poster. The person who gets the closest wins. This game is great to get everyone interacting with each other.
HAVE FUN PLAYING GAMES
- Have fun!
- Be creative! Make it fun, memorable, and exciting for everyone involved: the bride(s), groom(s), bridal party, guests, and even the wedding photographer.
It doesn’t matter what you do in life, or which road you take, there is always going to be one thing that is true: time waits for no one. We hope that you make your time count with these games!
