Love is in the air! We were asked to come up with fun games to play for a bridal shower. Well, challenge Accepted! So we immediately started brainstorming on the perfect game that is done Think Outside The World style. We like to take things to the extreme and find some sort of way to incorporate technology in everything we do. So, we created a customized Virtual Scavenger Hunt that featured several things that represent the happy couple (for example, their hobbies, favorite snacks, places they’ve worked, etc.). The person who found the most things and answered the questions correctly using the Virtual Reality Goggles won a pair of virtual reality goggles and a throw blanket.
We believe in simple, affordable games with giveaways that made sense. So we stumbled across the following gems we found on Pinterest: Find the Groom, Creative Date Night Ideas, The Sweetest Taboo, How Many Kisses, Disney Love Songs, What’s On Your Cell Phone, and “Put A Ring” on It Ring Toss.
Find The Groom
- Pictures of Men (Magazine Cut Outs or Printed from computer)
- Picture of Groom
Consisted of filling several envelopes with a pictures of random men. Only three envelopes had a picture of the groom. The envelopes were placed under each guest’s chair. The objective of the game is for each guest to look under their seat to find the groom and the first person to get the groom to his “wife to be” is the winner.

Creative Date Night
- Mason Jar
- Popsicle Sticks
- Ribbon/ Fabric
- Hot Glue Gun
Grab some popsicle sticks from either the Dollar Tree or your favorite craft store, a mason jar, decorative fabric and colorful fine point markers and have each guest write a create date night idea on a popsicle stick. When the happy couple is looking for something fun to do, they can enjoy a new activity suggested by you. Credit for the idea: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/32440059794263936/
The Sweetest Taboo
- Pearl Necklaces
- Necklace Stand
Each guest was given a pearl necklace upon arrival. The only catch, they could not say “wedding” or “bride” otherwise she would lose her pearls. The winner with the most pearls, won the necklace stand that the pearls were placed on before the guests arrived. Credit for the idea: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104779128807997900/
How Many Kisses?
- Hershey Kisses Candy
- Mason Jar
Fill a mason jar with kisses and have each guest take a guess. The person with the correct guess (or the closest guess), wins the jar of kisses. Credit for the idea: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/406801778822512193/
Disney Love Songs*
The bride to be loves Disney. So we thought it would be cute to incorporate this game on a worksheet that was placed on the table as other guests were eating. The winner with the most correct answers won a disney frame. Credit for the idea: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/44121271326959636/
What’s on your cell phone*
This was another game we included on the guest worksheet. Everyone has a cell phone and many different things on it. So, the person with the most points won a cell phone ring stand. Credit for the idea: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/27584616446393109/
Put a Ring on It Ring Toss
- Mason Jar Lids (3)
We found some clear bottles and gold rope from Dollar Tree. Wrapped mason jar lids with the gold rope to create the rings. Set up the bottles on the floor and the two guests who could “put a ring” on three bottles, each won a bottle of wine that was donated for the event.

*Often times there are moments of awkward silence at bridals showers so we created a worksheet for guests to fill out as they waited for others to arrive or while they were eating. Thanks to everyone we mentioned above for those awesome ideas.
We absolutely enjoy creating unique memories for our clients and we wanted to share with you some simple ways to do that without breaking the bank and losing your mind.
