Bridal Shower Games!

This post is all thanks to my little sister, Lauren.  We played some amazing bridal shower games at my shower this weekend....and now my sister is going to share them with all of you!!!

We played "Why do we do that?" - a game of bridal traditions (many are from a LONG time ago so it's harder than you may think).


We also played Famous Marriages match where you have to match the famous couples...we added bonus points if you got their names correct as a way to solve any ties. 


Oh, and bonus points for people who knew which of these couples Mr. J.G. and I had dressed up as for Halloween...



I kept telling him to say "LUUUUUCCCCYYY you've got some 'splaining to do!" and speak in Spanish all night while acting like I was crazy.  He said the acting like I was crazy part was easy...

Then we played a cute Candy Match game where you had to match candy games with parts of a wedding...some of them you have to say out loud to understand...(Twix, etc.)


All three games were super cute and very PG (we had grandparents there, ya'll).  Do you want your own set including answers/further explanation????  Well thanks to Lauren they're all yours!

Click here to view the PDF file and print your own copies!  The answers are also in the PDF link - woo hoo!

I highly recommend printing them onto card stock - that made it easy for us to write on them in our laps!  Enjoy!

P.S. have you liked me on Facebook yet?  Do you want to?  It would make my day...seriously.  Check out my Facebok page here: http://www.facebook.com/JanesGirlDesigns?ref=hl

  4. Organizing a bridal shower is challenging but it is totally worth the effort! We got the bride a personalized 'born to be bride' beer mug with her pic printed on the front. Found a terrific web page that lets you personalize your own personal tank tops, cups, post cards lots of other amazing stuff.

  5. One of my good friends forgot to get the invitations out in time and it turned into a huge problem! For some truly fantastic gifts you may choose to take into account some thing a little a lot more customized such as creating your own personal t-shrits with customized sayings. We discovered lots of excellent themes on this website if you're seeking for ideas:

  24. Thank you so much for these. The one with the traditions brought me back to my own wedding. My husband and I made "Guides to Wedding Traditions" for our bridesmaids and groomsmen so they would know why they were there.

  25. Interesting stuff. =) I wonder about some of "Why we do that." I'd read in more than one history book how people would bathe once a year, usually in May. Father, mother, then children oldest to youngest. "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water" came from this because at the end the water was fairly filthy. Anyway, by June the brides were still pretty "fresh" smelling, but they carried flowers to cover the odor that had appeared.

  26. Thank you! Cute, clean, fun games. I really appreciate these.

  27. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  31. These are so cute and the whole party looks like such a blast. I like the candy match one, but do you think it would work with non-native English speakers? Half my family is not from here... I may use this game here http://www.bridalbananas.com/bridal-shower-bingo instead. Do you think it'll still fit in with this type of theme?

  50. Excellent ideas! I just organized a wedding bath for an mature new bride and could not come up with any activities that weren't "childish" This would have been so helpful! These activities are wonderful! I'm definitely pinning for use in the future! Thank you so much for sharing! Bridal Shower Game Ideas
