How To Match The Bridal Shower Game To The Crowd

  1. 1. ==== ====For more bridal wisdom CLICK HERE!!!www.bridalwisdom.com==== ====You know its inevitable--bridal showers have gifts, food, and of course, games. For the mostmemorable and enjoyable occasion, match the game to the crowd. Youll get the bestparticipation--and a lot of laughs.Sometimes the guest list will determine what kind of game to choose.For the long-time friendsWhen the guest list is mostly long-time friends of the bride-to-be who also know each other well,choose a game that encourages reminiscing or awards in-depth knowledge.Game: Who knows the bride best?Prior to the shower, the bride-to-be fills out a questionnaire of twenty questions, some easy, somedifficult. For example: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? What is yourfavorite place to eat lunch? Give the same questions to each guest and have them fill out whatthey think her answers are. The one with the most correct, wins!For wedding party participants who dont know each other wellThese more introductory gatherings generally go over better when embarrassing moments areavoided. Choose safer games that allow the participants to get to know each other. This will helpmake everyone more comfortable on the wedding day.Game: Who am I?Ahead of time, write down the names of famous people on adhesive name tags. As each guestarrives, stick a tag to their back without them seeing it. Guests find out who they are by askingothers yes or no questions.For professional colleaguesEven though the bride might be blushing on her wedding day, you dont want her to do so at anevent involving work associates. Choose a game that challenges everyone to show their "smarts."Game: Purse scavenger huntMake a list beforehand of common and uncommon things that can be found in a womans purse.Assign each item a point value (uncommon items should have a higher point value). Divide thegroup into teams of two or three, and have them grab their bags. The team who racks up the mostpoints wins.For familyHeres the group who will want to celebrate all the bride-to-bes milestones--birth, baptism, batmitzvah, graduation. Pick a game that highlights the familys many happy memories.Game: Wise OnesAfter everyone has arrived, ask each person to introduce themselves and offer a nugget of adviceon how to have a happy marriage. Assign someone to record the tips, and compile it later as a gift
  2. 2. for the bride.Game: Guess Who?Ask everyone to bring wedding snapshots of themselves or earlier generations, putting their nameon the back for identification. Then, everyone will try to guess who brought which photo and who isin the photo.For college buddiesTime to bring out the stories youll never repeat in front of the groom! Guests at these gatheringswill want to let their hair down a little and have some good-natured fun.Game: Bridal roastGuests take turns telling outrageous stories about the guest of honor, they tell about how they firstmet her, or tell about the most fun they ever had together.For religious groupsThese more wholesome get-togethers are woven into the fabric of most churches andsynagogues. Its the time for your spiritual family to offer their special congratulations. A game thatcapitalizes on the groups fellowship would be appropriate.Game: Happy WishesOn index cards, have the guests write a happy thought or useful piece of advice. Have them sharethese nuggets of wisdom while also saying on what occasion to remember the words. Examplesmight be wedding night, first anniversary, first child, first fight, first house.Sometimes the bride-to-bes affinities suggest the tone of the party.For an artistic crowdIf the bride-to-be has a lot of artistic or crafts-oriented friends, get them on their feet and workingwith their hands for your party game.Game: Wedding DressAt the party, divide the guests into two or more groups of 3-5 people. Each group must choose amodel for their wedding dress (mothers of the bride and/or groom work wonderfully). The goal isfor each group to design and fashion a "wedding dress" out of toilet paper. Once the groups arefinished, the bride picks the winner. Great photo opportunities!For a more cerebral affairWord games or memory games are fun when the bride-to-be is Summa Cum Laude from Harvardor practices medicine when shes not planning a wedding.Game: Memory GamePlace fifteen to twenty small wedding related items on a tray and cover them with a lace napkin.Put the tray in the center of your guests and uncover for two minutes. Cover the tray again andask the guests to write down as many of the items as they can remember. The person whoremembers the most, wins a prize.Game: Observation.This is best about 30 minutes into the party. Have everyone sit in a designated area and handthem a piece of paper and pen. Then ask the bride-to-be to leave the room. Now have each guestdescribe on paper everything they can remember about what the bride is wearing. Give them 5minutes, and then invited the bride back in. The winner is the person that remembered the most.For sports lovers
  3. 3. If youre more likely to get the bride-to-be hockey tickets than wine goblets as a gift, choose agame that allows for a rip-roaring good time.Game: Toilet Paper and StickDivide the guests into teams with all but one member holding a toilet paper roll between her legs.The last member places a broomstick or pole between her legs. The goal of the game is for eachmember to walk (more like waddle) to their teams "pole" and place the toilet roll onto the pole(without using any hands). The first team to place all rolls onto its respective teams pole wins.For already-marrieds, or those with small kidsLet the new moms and newlyweds coo about their situations when the party guests are mostlystarting their own families.Game: Moms AdviceHave each guest tell the best and worst advice they received from their mother or grandmother.Award a prize to the person who gives the best advice and a booby prize to the worst advicereceived.For sophisticatesElegant party games that remind one of fine dining or haute couture will make a splash with thiskind of group.Game: The Spice GameGet as many spices together as you can and place them in unmarked, but numbered jars. Passeach one around the room and have each guest write down what she thinks it is according to thesmell. The one with the most correct wins the collection of spices.Games like the above will be sure to make your bridal shower memorable. Dont forget to providethe appropriate bridal shower favors as well.
