Looking for unique bridal shower games? You’re in the right place!
In this post, we are sharing 13 of the best unique bridal shower games.
Unique Bridal Shower Games
Bridal showers are always so much fun. You get to pour the champagne, enjoy delicious treats, and celebrate the bride-to-be with her closest family and friends.
That being said, one of the best ways to ensure a fabulous bridal shower is by including unique bridal shower games.
What Are Some Fun Things To Do At A Bridal Shower?
Although you don’t need to play bridal shower games to have a successful bridal shower, it definitely helps and we highly recommend doing so.
Bridal shower guests typically consist of close family and friends of the bride and groom.
That means that not everyone at the shower will already know one another – it also means that you generally can expect to have guests of a wide range of ages.
Doing fun activities and playing bridal shower games are the best ways we have found to break the ice and get guests chatting and learning fun tidbits about the bride and groom.
We have included all of our favorite bridal shower games in this post. Several of them have printables that you can download for FREE to use at the bridal shower you are throwing.
Bridal Shower Game Ideas
#1 – Guess Their Age
For this unique bridal shower game, you will need to get assistance from the mother of the bride and also the mother of the groom.
What you do is ask each of them to gather 5 to 10 photos of the bride and groom at different ages in their life ranging from birth to current.
Number each of the photos and place them around the bridal shower.
Give each guest a slip of paper and pencil to write down their guesses for how old the bride and groom are in each of the photos.
The guest with the most correct answer wins!
Interactive Bridal Shower Games
#2 – Put A Ring On It
This is a fun and unique bridal shower game, it’s called “Put A Ring On It”.
As your guests arrive, instruct each of them to take a plastic ring.
Let them know that throughout the shower they are not to say “bride” or other wedding related word(s) of your choice. If they hear someone say “bride” or the word(s) you’ve chosen, they can take the ring from that guest.
This game is a lot of fun, it’s interactive, and is played throughout the entirety of the shower.
As the shower is concluding, you will ask the guests to count how many rings they each have. The guest who has the most rings at the end of the bridal shower wins this unique bridal shower game!

#3 – Toilet Paper Game
If you are looking for a creative and competitive bridal shower game, you’ll love this toilet paper dress game.
To play this game, you will need to divide your guests into teams.
Depending on the size of the bridal shower you will have different numbers of teams each consisting of 3 to 4 people.
Each team is given 5 to 6 rolls of toilet paper that they must use to create a wedding dress on one of their team members – so each team must choose one person on their team that will be wearing the toilet paper wedding dress.
Let your guests know that they will have 10 minutes to create a wedding dress out of toilet paper on their teammate.
Set the timer for 10 minutes.
At the end of the 10 minutes, the bride-to-be will select which toilet paper wedding dress she likes the best. Whomever she chooses, that team is the winner!

How Many Games Should You Play At Bridal Shower?
When it comes to playing games at a bridal shower it truly comes down to personal preference. We recommend playing 2 to 4 games – depending on the length of the bridal shower. It’s always better to be prepared with a couple extra games and not end up playing them than to wish you had another activity for your guests.
