I love showers. I love the games and the food and the celebrating of a marriage or new baby or whatever. I know that there are many women who don't care for showers or games, but I do enjoy them so I was thrilled when I got the chance to throw a shower for my sister. I took my time looking up ideas for all aspects of the shower, pinning my favorite ideas, pulling everything together and putting it into one cohesive party. One of the major parts of a shower is the games. I found several ideas that I liked. I used ideas from Wedding Bee and Elegant Labels and I changed them to fit my ideas for the shower. I planned 4 games for the shower. We only had time to do 2 of the games because my sister's mother-in-law to be had plans for after the shower and asked me to cut it short. But I thought that I would go ahead and share all 4 with you so you can use them if you want.
The files are word documents so you should be able to change them to fit your needs. I edited the documents to take out the names. You can put in names for bride and groom. These are for personal use only. Please keep my web address on them when you print them so I get my credit and other people can find these printables if they want them.

Bridal Shower Things
This game was kinda an extra game that I planned if we had extra time. It would have been more of a game for people who wanted to hang out after the present opening when the people who have plans left, but it just didn't work. The way I planned this game was to make a cross between The Game of Things
and Apples to Apples (Two extrememly fun games). The materials needed for this are small strips of papers for people to write on and pens or pencils. Everyone gets several strips of paper. You announce a category such as things you don't do at a wedding, things you say at the altar, things you see when walking up the aisle, things you don't say to your mother in law, things you don't do on your honeymoon, etc. I had planned to write up a list of categories but hadn't gotten around to it so I was going to wing it. Everyone writes up a response to the category and passes them to the bride. If you have a small group you can play like things and go around the circle guessing who wrote which response (let me know if you are interested in more info on that way of playing). If you have a larger group play like apples to apples and the bride picks her favorite response. I wasn't planning to do any prizes for this game, but you could award points and whoever has the most points gets the prize.
What about you? Do you like bridal shower games? What is your favorite or least favorite bridal shower game?
I am thinking about making up a simple bridal game kit to sell on Etsy. Leave me a comment if you would be interested in this so I can get an idea of the possible interest.
