Rachel Torgerson of "The Knot" suggests that bridesmaids incorporate a few classic bridal shower games into the party as ice-breakers for guests who have never met one another. Additionally, even if games aren't your speed, bridesmaids should plan activities that encourage guests to socialize and have a great time. These include games such as "Bridal Shower Bingo" and "Two Truths and a Lie."Continue Reading
To play Bridal Shower Bingo, create bingo cards but replace the word bingo with bride along the top margin. Instead of numbers, fill each square with facts about the soon to-be-married couple, for instance, the name of the place where the couple got engaged or where they will go on their honeymoon. Then, simply follow traditional bingo rules; the first guest who marks a full line gets a prize.
While playing Two Truths and a Lie, guests must decide what is fact or fiction while practicing their wedding poker faces. Each guest introduces herself to the group and tells three stories about the bride, two that are true and one that is a lie. The person who correctly guesses the lie gets a point.
The best activities to plan for a bridal shower are activities that honor the bride. Popular ideas include having guests bring a picture of themselves with the bride to put into a photo album or making a bridal scrapbook.Learn more about Weddings
