20 Of The Best Free Printable Bridal Shower Games

There's mingling and opening gifts, maybe a nice lunch (or brunch) at a bridal shower. But what should occupy the other hours?

Bridal shower games are a great way to have guests interacting with one another while also passing time. You don't want to spend hours opening gifts that we all know are on your registry, right? 

Some themed entertainment can rack up costs. So instead of dropping serious dough, spend money on decorations and use these 20 free printable bridal shower games for your upcoming event. 

1. How Well Do You Know The Bride?


A post shared by Joy Co (@joycoevents) on Jun 5, 2019 at 8:00pm PDT

It's reason to believe that you know the bride-to-be invited you to the wedding, but you must know the bride to get an invite to the bridal shower. Put these friendships and family members to the test by seeing how much they know about her.

4. Find The Guest 

Whether the guests are from the bride's hometown, university, or are her colleagues, it's likely there will be some initial awkwardness when everyone meets. Ease this social situation by incorporating a game that forces guests to mingle with one another.

6. Bridal Raffle Tickets 


A post shared by Kimberly Hidalgo (@kimhidalgo) on May 17, 2019 at 9:04am PDT

While the tickets may be free, the cost of the raffle prize may not be. This is a fun idea (or game) to hand bridal shower guests as they walk into the celebration. A side note: the raffle could be a service or funny to-do and doesn't have to be costly.

7. What's In Your Purse?

When it comes to women's purses and handbags, it's always a mystery. It can even be a wonder to the person who owns the handbag! This game is a creative outlet to create some laughs and maybe more organized wedding attendees.

8. Wedding Word Search 


A post shared by Celebrating Digital (@celebratingdigital) on Dec 21, 2018 at 7:06pm PST

Ever since we were children, there's been something so satisfying about finding words in a classic game of word search. But instead of searching for fish and Denny's, make the words related to the bride or wedding themed. If looking to personalize a word search to be bride specific, try using sites like Discovery Education.

9. What Did The Groom Say?

What if we're all up to date on the bride, but we know very little about the groom? This game will put your shower attendees up to the test as they write in their answers.

Just like the game What's in my Purse?, What's in my Phone? is a digital take on an organizational mess. This can be raunchy to funny and everything in between, and it's a sure way to get to know your guests better.

11. Bride or Groom?


A post shared by GB (@selfieframesca) on May 25, 2019 at 12:22pm PDT

You know the bride, you know the groom, but can you tell them apart (and no, not by looks)? If this couple is a true match made in heaven, it may be hard to tell the two apart. And this game will break down hobbies, favorite things, and personal facts, so the guests will need to distinguish whether it was the bride or groom that fits each claim.

12. Over or Under

With a wedding, there's a lot of dates to know and numbers to memorize. This game will help the bride figure out which family members and friends are keeping track alongside her. 

(Download here)

13. Advice For The Bride

A great game for those shower attendees who have already been married. Marriage is no cake walk, and while the bride should be very excited for her and her partner's next adventure, she should know some crucial pieces of advice from her favorite people.

14. Bridal Shower Word Scramble


A post shared by Handmade Boutique (@wistfullymodern) on Dec 5, 2018 at 8:16am PST

Those who are awesome at Scrabble may just be masters of Bridal Word Scramble too. The ability to put a puzzle together by simply using just letters will be sure to impress the shower guests. 

(Download here)

15. Does The Bride Really Know The Groom?

Oh, what a tables have turned moment. We're tested to know the bride, and the groom, and the differences between the two, but does the bride even know the groom? Only downside is if this game doesn't go well, a lot of friends and family will find themselves questioning the happy couple.

16. Bridal Shower Scattergories

Most people remember owning or having a Scattergories at home growing up, and to some, it might have been their favorite game. While the themes in the traditional board game can vary from beach to automobiles, why not create themes that speak to an "everything" wedding?

(Download sample for free, or purchase from Etsy)

17. Guess The Dress


A post shared by LHM Weddings (@lhmweds) on May 24, 2019 at 12:56pm PDT

A small heads up, there's some drawing involved in this game. Give everyone a white colored pencil and have them go to town drawing and guessing what the bride's dress will look like on her big day. (Those who went dress shopping with the bride, politely excuse yourself.)

(Download here)

18. The Price is Right

With the amount of items a bride and groom have to put on their registry, they've become real pros at accurately guessing the price of home decor and kitchenware. Not only can you put the bride to the test, you can see how much or how little you know about products on the market. 

(Download here for a sample, or purchase from Etsy)

19. Bridal Bingo 


A post shared by Hello Hazen (@hellohazen) on May 18, 2019 at 1:30pm PDT

If the bridal shower is a mixed group of women (regarding age and where they met the bride), Bingo is a classic game staple that's loved and understood by all. Best of all, there are many versions of wedding bingo, so your party can find a version that suits them.

20. Help Her Write The Vows

Depending on how personal the bride is, this could be a fun game to play with everyone at the bridal shower. Even if it's not writing the vows verbatim, it could be nice to mention something you like about the couple together. This way it gives the bride an outside perspective on what makes her love so special.
