Bridal Shower Games

“Maid-of-honor” can be a pretty high-pressure position. Arguably the most time-consuming duty of a maid-of-honor is planning a bridal shower. How do you get so many different people together and manage to keep them entertained?

One fun and easy way to have a good time at a bridal shower is by playing games. These can range from mild to risque, but no matter what you play, it’s important to simply have fun.

Below, we’ve outlined a few popular games that can be played with any number of people!

Purse Raiding

Purse raiding is like a scavenger hunt, only every item could be in a guest’s purse or bag.

Create a list ahead of time with items you would expect to find in a purse. This could include lipstick, car keys, or a wallet. After you’re through with the basics, work up to more difficult items, such as a camera or dog treats.

Whoever has the most items from the list in their purse or bag wins!

The Newlywed Game

Before the bridal shower, ask the fiancee questions about their relationship, such as “Where did you meet?” or “What’s your biggest pet peeve?”

At the shower, put the bride in the hot seat and have her answer the questions. Make sure to record a video of this one—it can end up being the best moment of the shower!

Two Truths and a Lie

One of the best parts of “Two Truths and a Lie” is that it takes no preparation or props. Just your imagination!

Each guest at the shower will introduce themselves and share three experiences they’ve had with the bride. Two of them are true. It’s up to the group to determine which is a lie.

Sometimes, the truths can be even crazier than the lies!
