Bridal Shower Games Help Make Memories

Fabulous food, fun and fellowship at a Bridal Shower are expected, however, you can put a new twist on things with some exciting games.

1. Bridal Pictionary - Give each person a paperplate, some crayons and a blindfold! Have each person make their best attempt at drawing a picture of what they think the bride will look like on her wedding day. Make the picture as detailed as possible with veil, train, jewelry, etc. Give everyone 2 minutes or so and let the bride-to-be select which drawing is a close resemblance. Winner gets a prize. The pictures will be hilarious and the bride can keep them to look back on for years of laughter.

2. Bathroom Tissue Fashion Show - Select teams of 2 parties each and give each team 2 rolls of bathroom tissue. Each team is responsible for designing a wedding gown made of tissue and one person from each team must strut their stuff on the runway of sorts. Accessories are allowed (earrings, bouquet, headpiece) but they all have to be made out of tissue. Play some lively music for the big reveal. The most creative team wins!

3. Who Knows Me Best - The bride-to-be can work on this one with the hostess ahead of time to choose several questions that only those in the know will have the answers to. The more outrageous the questions, the more laughter resounds. Answers can be in a multiple choice format to help participants along a bit if you like. By the end of this game, everyone will know the bride-to-be a bit more than before.

Wedding prep can be stressful. Let the Bridal Shower be a time to relax, kick your shoes off and just have fun. Provide disposable cameras for photo ops. Video taping is also a plus. Planning a Bridal Shower?? Try this website for assistance.

One more idea for those planning a wedding ~ instead of putting disposable cameras on the tables and getting a roll of film of the same people my husband and I purchased "X" number of rolls of film and asked specific people with good cameras to take some candid shots for us. We ended up with a great variety of photos of different people. We still put 5 cameras on the tables and I wish we wouldn't have.
