|ICE BREAKER BRIDAL SHOWER GAMES|
WESTCHESTER COUNTY & HUDSON VALLEY WEDDING GUIDE
Ice Breaker Bridal Shower Games
Ice breaker games are perfect at bridal showers where not all the guests know each other. They provide a way for the shower guests to learn about each other while having some fun.
Famous Names Bridal Shower Game
Supplies: Adhesive backed name tags for each guest, bridal shower game prizes.
Before the shower, write the name of a famous person or character on each name tag. As your guests arrive, attach a name tag to each person's back - but don't let them see the name on the tag!
As your guests mingle, they should look at each others name tags, and provide clues (without naming names) as to who that person is supposed to be. Try to have each guest give one glue to each other guest as they mingle - but don't be too obvious.
Some ideas for names to put on the tags are:
After everyone is seated, go around the room and have each guest guess their "personality," with a neighbor removing their nametag and handing it to them after they guess. You can also ask them to tell what the "dead giveaway" clue was if they get it right. Award prizes to the guests who guess correctly.
Belling the Guest Game
Supplies: Bells (or other tokens) on ribbons that can be worn like necklaces (you could also use mardi gras beads or fake Hawaiin leis in place of the bell necklaces), bridal shower game prizes.
As each guest arrives, give them a necklace to wear and explain the following rules:
No one is supposed to mention the bride or groom by name. If someone catches you using their names, she gets to take your necklace.
The guest with the most necklaces wins a prize.
Pin Collecting Game
Supplies: clothes pin for each guest (preferably decorated in the wedding's theme colors or with other wedding related decoration), bridal shower game gifts
As each guest arrives, give her a clothes pin to attach to the hem of her skirt or the cuff of her pants. The rules are that no one is allowed to cross her legs or ankles.
If a guest notices anyone sitting with her legs or ankles crossed, she has the right to snatch the clothes pin from her hem or cuff. At the end of the shower, the guest with the most clothes pins gets a prize. Everyone's pins should be collected and given to the bride.
Alternative: instead of losing a clothes pin by crossing their legs or ankles, the rules can be that the pin is lost by using the bride's or groom's name out loud.
