Bridal Shower Games are a fun part
of the lead-up to your big day. Of course, be prepared to
be embarrassed - there's no way you'll avoid that! :)
The bridal shower (sometimes called kitchen
tea) is put on by the bridesmaids to prepare the bride for
her impending marriage. Tradition has it that a bride would
be preparing to set up her own home for the first time, and
so her bridesmaids, friends, mothers and relatives would 'shower'
her with homeware type gifts.
Obviously, in this modern age, it's somewhat
rare to find a bride-to-be who is still living at home, so
while the tradition is not necessarily appropriate these days,
any excuse for a good party and lots of cool gifts is always
welcome. After all, you can never have too many kitchen goodies!
Also, it's a great opportunity for some female
bonding and perhaps learning a few pearls of married life
wisdom from the ladies who have already been married.
Here's a couple of example bridal shower games
you might like to play:
How well does the bride know the groom?
In advance of the bridal shower, ask the groom 20 or so questions
about himself. At the shower, have everyone ask how well they
think the bride knows her groom. Have them write down how
many of the questions they think she will get right. Some
question ideas are: "What was his first pet and it's name?".
group, color, and so on." "How old was he when.... he had
his first kiss, etc."
Another fun bridal shower game is:
Famous T.V. Couples
Write down the last names of at least 20 famous T.V. couples,
and your friends and family have to figure out the first names.
Give them only about 5 minutes to guess the names. Then read
the first names and the T.V. show that they were from. It's
a fun game to play! Whoever gets the most wins the game.
These 2 are just a SMALL selection of fun bridal
shower games you might like to use. To see the full list,

Did You Know?
The chief bridesmaid is usually a sister or close friend of
the bride. However, if she is already married herself or if
the bride is a widow and is re-marrying, her title becomes
Matron of Honour.
