Bridal Shower Game ideas...

Here are three bridal shower game ideas...

Kitchen Gadget Memory Game
Beforehand, attach with embroidery floss a variety of kitchen tools or gadgets to a heavy-duty apron. For example: whisk, measuring spoons, spatula, tongs, kitchen towel, serving spoons, etc. When it is time to play the game, take the bride into another room and put the apron on her. Bring the bride back into the room and have the guests look at the items on the apron for about 30 seconds. The bride then leaves the room. The guests are given a minute to try to remember and write down as many kitchen tools or gadgets as they can recall. After the time is up the bride comes back into the room and the guest who had the most correct answers wins a prize. All of the items and the apron are given to the bride as a gift. (Variation for Baby Shower: Attach baby items (rattles, bottle, ointments, etc. to a baby blanket.)

Door Prize
I like fun, fast games as much as the ones that require a little time and thought. As the guests arrive ask them to fill out a piece of paper with their wedding date or, if they are single, their birth date. The person with the date closest to the bride's wedding date wins a prize. (Baby Shower variation: Have guests mark down their birthday. The guest who has the birthday closest to the mother's due date wins the prize.)

Who Am I?
Each guest is given a 3x5 card. The guest is asked to write down a memory they have of the bride. Do not include your name on the card. Collect the cards and then have the bride read each card and guess who wrote that memory. This is a wonderful game because it gives the bride a stack of memories and also allows "strangers" at the shower to get to know how others know the bride. This game also lends itself to tender moments as the guests share their sweet memories of the bride with the group.

More game ideas posted tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing all the fun shower game ideas!! One of my sons is getting married in Sept and one of my daughters is getting married in March..sooooo, I can use all those cute ideas! How thoughtful you were to put all the special time and energy into the prizes, wrapping them and coordinating all the color and ribbons too. How sweet!
