Oh, Wedding Mad Libs is a hilarious game that's sure to have everyone in stitches! Basically, you take a story about the bride and groom but leave out some keywords, like nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Then, the guests fill in the blanks with their own wacky and wild words, creating a totally new and absurd story that's completely unique to your party.

The best part about Wedding Mad Libs is that you never know what you're going to get! With all the silly and ridiculous words that guests come up with, the end result can be super funny and unexpected.

Bridal Pictionary

Here’s another awesome wedding shower game that's perfect for anyone who loves to draw, guess, or just have a good time! Essentially, you divide your guests into teams and give each team a stack of cards with different wedding-related words or phrases. Then, one person from each team has to draw the word while their teammates try to guess what it is before time runs out.

Another great thing about Bridal Pictionary is that it's super fast-paced and exciting! You never know what your teammates are going to draw, and the pressure of the ticking clock makes it even more thrilling.

Bride Trivia

Bride Trivia is a super fun bridal shower game but it’s also about putting your knowledge of the bride-to-be to the test! The game involves creating a quiz with questions about the bride's life, personality, and relationship with her future spouse. Then, the guests get to answer the questions and compete to see who knows the bride best.

One of the most exciting aspects of it is that it's not just fun, it's also a great way to learn more about the bride and her life. You might discover some interesting facts or stories that you never knew before!
