A collection of fun Bridal shower entertainment, games, and activities could be the answer to your bridal shower’s itinerary. It could take your pre-wedding event to a whole new level while keeping your guests engaged and entertained.
Your bridal shower entertainment can be customized based on the event theme, duration, guest list, budget, and most importantly the preferences of the bride-to-be.
There is a plethora of creative and unique bridal shower games and activities that you can choose from on sites like Etsy or other outlets without sacrificing a huge cost.
Various types of Bridal Shower entertainment
Bridal shower entertainment games are generally of two types, multiplayer/ interactive and single-player/ non-interactive. When multiplayer games encourage mingling team spirit among the guests and act as great ice-breakers, single-player games bring a much more personal touch and involve more thought and precision.
It is much better to include a mixture of different types of games appealing to different age categories, bridesmaids, and the bride-to-be herself. This will create a more inclusive, relaxed, and connected ambiance.
It is paramount to ask for the bride’s entertainment preferences first before coming to a conclusion, as it’s her special day after all!
Here are 10 bridal shower entertainment games and activities to pep up your shower
1. Wedding Edition Pictionary
It is a game played just like the regular Pictionary but you could incorporate pictures relating to the couple and their wedding. You may also add a quirky element by providing the participants with a tube of lipstick, or even a hair liner instead of pens or pencils, and asking them to draw only using their mouths when their hands are tied back.
This is a great interactive team game that would surely bring loads of laughter with the added element of lipstick.
2. Cold Feet
In this game, toy rings placed in buckets or bowls of ice water have to be pulled out using just your toes, in a particular time frame. The person who pulls out the most rings is the winner. This is a challenging single-player game where the guests could immerse themselves in a new experience.
3. Bridal Shower Mad Libs
Inspired by the well-known Mad Libs game, it is a fun and easy bridal shower game. There are many amazing printables you can find for free or even by purchasing. It’s hilarious and would sure to crack up everyone present at your event.
4. Paper Bride
This is a game in which the guests are divided into teams and one member from each team should be outfitted as a model. The rest of the team members will construct a wedding dress using only toilet paper or maybe newspapers. They can even use accessories like glitter, paint, colored pen, etc to add more elegance and creativity to their paper bride’s dress. The bride will then pick her favorite.
5. Wedding Ring Thief
This is an interesting, classic, and fun game that spans throughout the entire bridal shower. Each guest is given a plastic ring to wear at the start of the bridal shower. Whenever the chosen taboo words like “bride”, “wedding” or “love” are uttered by that particular guest, the person who hears and catches him/ her first can steal the ring. Likewise, the guest who ends up with the most rings at the end of the bridal shower wins.
6. Date-Night Jar
For this bridal shower activity, you could pass some cards and pens around to the guests and ask them to pen down some of their personal favorite date-night ideas. The paper notes can be put in a cute jar and given to the bride-to-be as a keepsake. She would have a wide variety of date-night ideas to choose from in the future. It would also add a romantic touch to the event’s atmosphere.
