Bridal shower games are an addition you’ll certainly want to incorporate into your bridal shower planning. Not only are they inexpensive entertainment, but they’re a great way to get (and keep) everyone involved in the day, especially at some of the less exciting moments (such as during gift opening which can tend to drag on). They’re also a great way to bring guest together, inspire conversation, and they’re just plain old fun.
Setting a game at each place setting is a great way to ensure every guest gets a copy of the game. We’ve included a number of attractive options on this list so not only will the games provide entertainment, but also serve as an element of decor. If the group isn’t really the game playing type but you still want to provide an activity, we’ve included items such as advice cards, recipe cards, and date idea cards for this reason. If you still want to name a winner, read through the submissions and have the bride choose her favorite submission.
If none of the games on this list meet your needs, you can shop additional top-rated bridal shower games here.

1. He Said She Said Bridal Shower Game
Great for both a bridal shower or a couple’s shower, this game gets to the heart of a bride and groom’s relationship and shows just how well guests know them. There are 50 sheets in each set, making it a really reasonably priced game to play even with a big group. The high quality card stock keeps it looking very sophisticated and professional and not cheap at all. The clean and cute design is great for just about any theme of shower, especially garden or tea parties.

3. Better Together Five Bridal Shower Games Set
While there are only 12 sheets in each order, the five games in one make for a great money saving option when it comes to bridal shower games. This set would look great set out at each place setting, with a very attractive and neutral design. The folded sheet includes both games about the attendees and about the bride and groom, so there’s something for everyone.

4. Avant Garde Ball Toss Bridal Shower Party Novelty Favors
Different than the standard printed games, this interactive game is great if you have a mixed guest list with grandmas, aunts, moms, and co-workers in the mix and you need something that’s tame and appropriate. Depending on the color of the card, guests will be asked to answer questions about the bride, bride and groom, or complete a dare. The inexpensive price tag makes this one an easy choice.
5. Letterpress Advice for the Bride & Groom
If you’re not interested in playing an actual game but want to give guests some type of activity to complete at the shower, advice cards are a fun option. Each guest can jot down their personal advice for the couple for their new adventure together. These high quality cards are really gorgeous and worth the slightly higher price tag. You can set these out at the shower or send a card ahead of time with the invitation and have guests bring their completed cards to the shower. If the bride likes to cook, include these coordinating recipe cards with the invitation so each guest can provide a recipe. Compile each recipe in a recipe book for a gift to the bride that she will cherish forever.
Price: $10 for 10
6. Bridal to Be Bingo Sheets
Bridal bingo is one of my personal favorite bridal shower games. It involves a little bit of creativity from guests and allows them to become a bit more invested during gift opening time as they wait to see if one of their bingo squares can be marked each time the bride opens a gift. Each guest will fill out their own bingo card with whatever gifts they think the bride will receive. Make sure to have a gift on hand for the bingo winner – a bottle of wine or a fun cookbook are both great options.

7. Date Night Idea Cards
If recipe cards or advice cards aren’t your thing, help guests inspire the bride and groom with some awesome date night ideas. Guests can get creative thinking of some really fun and unique activities. We love the idea of collecting these date cards at the shower in a fun gold jar like this one. The bride (and groom) can take this home and grab a card any time they’re in need of some date night inspiration.
Price: $9.99 for 12 (17 percent off MSRP)
8. What’s in Your Purse? Bridal Shower Game Cards
What’s in your purse is a way to get everyone in attendance involved in a game, gaining points for each item that they have in their purse. The more common items have less points associated with them, with the more unique items being worth a higher number of points. Whoever has the highest number of total points at the conclusion of the game is the winner. This same game comes in a number of versions and designs so if this look isn’t your style, you can check out the other options.
Price: $10.99 for 20
9. Guess the Dress Bridal Shower Game
Everyone wants to know what the dress looks like, which makes this a really fun game for guests. If they know the bride well, they might be able to get pretty close. Of course no one will guess the exact design, so the bride can still keep her dress a big surprise if she chooses. This game card is available with an African American model as well as a Caucasian bride with blonde hair if one of those more closely resembles the bride you’re hosting a shower for.
10. How Well Do You Know the Bride? Bridal Shower Game Cards
This Andaz Press printed game is all about the bride and who knows her best. It asks some basic questions as well as some hard hitters about the bride with the winner of course being whoever has the highest number of correct answers. Each sheet measures 8.5″ x 11″. While we love the faux burlap design, Andaz Press has this same print game available in a slew of designs. You can browse all of their bridal shower games here.
