Bridal showers are pre-wedding activities that celebrate the brides upcoming nuptials while also letting wedding guests mix and mingle with each other before the big event.
Traditionally bridal showers are hosted during the daytime and guests are invited to enjoy food and cocktails while they watch the bride open gifts that will help her get ready for newlywed life!
If you’re the host, it’s a great idea to have games and activities throughout the bridal shower to pass the time before the gift opening begins. Bridal shower games will get guests to break the ice and talk with each other while also giving them the opportunity to learn more about the bride and groom. This may be the last time many of the guests are in the same room before the ceremony.
There are lots of bridal shower games and activities to choose from, just make sure to select ones your bride will enjoy! An extroverted bride may enjoy a game of bridal charades whereas a more relaxed bride would rather set up a flower crown bar in the backyard. Activities also help make the time fly by.
Bridal shower games and activities don’t have to break the bank in order to be fun. In fact, our bridal shower printables are completely free to download! For example, these advice and wishes printables give guests the opportunity to pass along advice and best wishes to the bride and groom as they embark on their new journey together. Older guests in particular will enjoy passing along wisdom to the happy couple!
