Bridal Shower Prizes
One of the hardest things about coming up with prize ideas is that you typically don’t know the guests you’re buying prizes for. Not to mention the age range of guests that attend a bridal shower can span several generations. You can have young cousins or nieces all the way up to great-grandmas.
So deciding what to purchase for people you don’t know can be a challenge. You want to choose something they’ll like – but what is that?
Well, you’re in luck – because in this post we share the best bridal shower prizes that are sure to wow your guests.

Bridal Shower Prizes FAQS
There can be some confusion when it comes to shower prizes so we’ve included some FAQS to hopefully help answer any questions.
How Many Prizes Should You Buy For A Bridal Shower?
The number of prizes you should buy for a bridal shower comes down to the number of bridal shower games you intend on playing. For example – if you’re playing 3 bridal shower games – purchase 3 bridal shower prizes. We do recommend purchasing at least 1 additional bridal shower prize than the number of games that you’re playing. Sometimes when you play games there will be a tie even after the tiebreaker questions. That way if you do end up with a tie (which does happen) you will have a prize for each of the winners.
How Much Should You Spend On Bridal Shower Prizes?
How much you choose to spend on bridal shower prizes is really up to you and the bridal shower budget you’ve set. Very nice bridal shower prize ideas cost around $20. However, this amount is not set in stone and there are several game prizes you can purchase for $10 or less.
Keep in mind, even if you’re playing bridal shower games – you do not need to purchase bridal shower prizes. They are a lovely touch, but not necessary.
What’s The Difference Between Bridal Shower Favors And Bridal Shower Prizes?
The difference between bridal shower favors and bridal shower prizes is that shower favors are given out to each of the bridal shower guests. Shower favors serve as a little thank you to your guests for attending the bridal shower by sending them home with a memento.
Bridal shower prizes are given to guests as a reward (a prize) for winning the bridal shower games you play. Shower prizes typically cost more than bridal shower favors as there are fewer of them to purchase. However, neither shower favors nor bridal shower prizes are a necessity. If your budget doesn’t allow for these little extras – that is totally okay.
Bridal Shower Prize Ideas
Regardless of which shower prizes you choose to hand out, I’m sure your guests will love winning them! Remember, everyone at the shower is there to honor and celebrate the bride.
Winning a prize is simply an additional little perk that they weren’t expecting but are sure to appreciate!
Candles, gift cards, water bottles, spa gift baskets, and coffee mugs all make for popular bridal shower prize ideas. Creating DIY bridal shower prizes are also a great option. Try not to stress too much over bridal shower prize ideas. I know that can be easier said than done, but do your best!
Have fun picking out these little extras for the bridal shower and celebrating the special bride-to-be!
