Love Story Mad Libs
This Mad Libs activity is a classic party game that many people enjoy. Have the bride and groom fill out a Mad Libs-style questionnaire about their love story before the shower. Ask questions such as, “Where did you have your first date?” or “What’s the craziest thing you’ve done together?” At the shower, hand out the questionnaire to guests, read out the questions, and ask them to come up with answers.
Bridal Shower Bingo
Who doesn’t love a good game of bingo? Just print out pre-made bingo cards that have bridal shower-related words such as “bride,” “groom,” “wedding,” etc., and hand them out to guests. Throughout the shower, guests will mark off the corresponding square on their bingo card. The first one to get a straight line or a full house can shout, “Bingo!” and win a prize.
DIY Flower Crown Making
Flower crowns are perfect for a bohemian-themed bridal shower. Set up a flower crown station with fresh flowers, greenery, and supplies such as floral wire, tape, and ribbon. Have the guests make their flower crown, and the bride can choose the best crown. This activity is perfect for the bride who loves nature and creativity.
DIY Lip Gloss Making
Looking for a bridal shower activity that will have guests puckering up (in a good way)? Look no further than DIY lip gloss making! There are many homemade lip gloss recipes to try, and everyone can mix up a batch of glossy goodness. Plus, you can customize the colors and scents to match the bride-to-be’s favorite shades and fragrances.
Forget traditional selfies; a photo booth is a must-have at any party. Set up a photo booth with props such as comically large sunglasses, colorful hats, or balloons, and let the guests snap their photos. The bride will appreciate photos of her guests at her bridal shower.
Guess the Bride’s Age
“Guess the bride’s age” is a bridal shower activity that guests will love because it’s a fun icebreaker.

The guest with the most correct answers gets a prize.

Not only will she find words of wisdom, but she will also feel the love and support from her friends and family.
