Whatever bridal shower party game you choose, make it interactive. It is a lot more fun to hear people shout out answers, because the wrong answers can be a source of extra fun!

For instance, charades is popular and easy to do. You don't even need any supplies. Just think up some wedding related themes for guests to act out.

Another easy game is the bridal version of hangman. A chalkboard or dry erase board or even a large artist sketchpad is needed. Decide on the wedding related answer you want and draw your blanks so that guests can start guessing letters from the alphabet. The twist to this game is to draw, instead of a hangman, a bride with all her accessories – dress, veil, etc.

And speaking of bridal accessories, a few bridal shower party games stem from this. The toilet paper wedding dress game has guests breaking off into teams to create the perfect wedding dress made out of toilet paper.

Another game has the guests using common household kitchen items to make a wedding veil. Kitchen items commonly used could be plastic wrap, aluminum foil, cheese cloth and garbage bag twist ties. Or, have a variety of craft items handy for teams to make a wedding veil like some of your leftover ribbon and tulle from the shower decorations.

The bride gets to be the judge for both the toilet paper wedding dress game and the wedding veil game.

One traditional icebreaking bridal shower party game is a guessing game. When guests arrive, the hostess writes down the name of a famous person on a name tag and puts it on their back.

The object is for the person to figure out who is on their back. They have to mingle with other guests and ask ‘yes' or ‘no' questions until they figure out the answer. A fun twist to this game is to make it about famous couples. The premise is the same, but once the guests figure out who they are, they have to try and hook up with their"mate" before anyone else does. The first "couple" to check in with the hostess wins a prize.

When guests arrive and they don't know one another, things can be a bit quiet and awkward. With the right bridal shower party game, everyone will loosen up in no time. When the guests start chatting and interacting like old friends, then the bridal shower is a definite success.
