You and your besties are absolutely going to love these!

1. Wedding movie charades

We’ve all played dumb charades at some point in our life. This is just the same, only that this time you’re only allowed to give wedding related movies to the other team. And there are just so many of them! It is a great way to insure that everyone participates and gets the party rolling!

You can start by handing out ‘He Said, She Said’ cards to all your besties, mentioning some cheeky facts about you and your fiance. And let your friends start guessing! Throw in some true facts, some lies, some totally crazy stuff and we bet, it’s going to be a laugh riot!

3. Two truths and a lie

‘Two truths and a lie’ is the best game to play over snacks and drinks. It is especially fun if all your girls do not know each other all that well. Everyone has to come up with three statements about themselves - Two truths and one lie. And the others have to guess what’s the truth and what’s the lie! An easy game that also serves as a great ice-breaker for the girl gang.

As the name suggests, words of wisdom is a game where one gives some friendly wedding- related advice to the bride-to-be. But with a quirky twist! It involves all your girls writing a short and fun tip (read: how to seduce him in bed!) on a piece of paper. The bride has to later guess the propagator of the advice.

7. Ring-O-Mania

This one can be played throughout the bridal shower. All you need to do is, decide on a word that no one should use through the course of the evening. It could be anything! As the guests enter the room, hand them a pretty ring. But they’ll have to give it away if they happen to use the  ‘forbidden word’ in a conversation. The ones who still have a ring on by the end of the night, win!

10. Find the guest

This one’s an ice breaker for all your girls who are meeting each other for the very first time. ‘Find the guest’ is a fun bridal shower game that involves a list with one dirty or fun detail about each of the girls.
