Worried about planning elaborate bridal shower games to play with your guests? If you are hosting a bridal shower, you are probably busy enough organizing invitations, food, decorations, and house cleaning. Here are 5 great bridal shower games that require little to no preparation on your part. Even if you’ve played them before, they are definitely “repeatable” and always a lot of fun.

1. Toilet paper wedding dresses

Preparation time: None

Supplies: Toilet paper rolls

Organize your guests into groups of 4-5. Give each group a roll of toilet paper. Tell the groups that they have 5 (or 10) minutes to dress one member of the group in the best possible wedding dress, made using only the toilet paper and whatever else they may have in their purses. Then set a timer. When the time is up, ask each well-dressed guest to model their dress. Ask the whole group to vote for their favorite. The winning group receives small prizes or goes first in line for a snack.

2. Another set of toilet paper

Preparation time: none

Supplies: 1 or 2 rolls of toilet paper

Pass the roll of toilet paper among the guests, instructing each to “cut as much as you think you need.”

When everyone has their share, walk around the room and ask each one to share a tip for newlyweds for each square of toilet paper. Award the person with the best advice, funniest advice, or most advice.

3. Bridal Shower Purse Set

Preparation time: 10 minutes.

Supplies: Paper and pencils for each guest.

Before you shower, make a list of 20 to 25 items that women carry in their purses. Be sure to list common and uncommon items. Assign a point value to each, giving rarer items more points than ordinary items. To play, give each guest a sheet of paper and a pencil. Say each item on the list out loud, along with its point value. If the guest has that item in her purse, score the corresponding number of points. When you finish reading your list, each guest adds their own score. The person with the most points is the winner.

4. How well do you know the bride?

Preparation time: 10 minutes.

Supplies: Paper and pencils for each guest.

Before you shower, make a list of about 20 questions about dating. Include information that most guests will surely know, along with information that only a few will know. Include questions such as: “Where did the bride and groom first meet? When? What is the name of the groom’s dog? What is the bride’s middle name? Where are they going on their honeymoon?” and so on.

Note: Show your list of questions to the bride ahead of time, to ensure that there is nothing that might be “uncomfortable” for her or any of the guests. This can even be done right before your shower, so you can quickly change a question or two.

To play, read each question, giving each guest time to write an answer. If guests don’t know the answer, encourage them to guess. These guesses alone can be fun enough to make the game a hit! When you have asked all the questions, ask the bride to give you the answers. Award a prize to the winners.

5. Were you paying attention?

Preparation time: 5 minutes.

Supplies: Paper and pencils for each guest.

Before the shower *, take a few minutes and make a list of things that guests should be able to notice about the bride if they are paying attention. Write questions like: “Was the bride wearing a necklace? What color are her shoes? How many rings is she wearing? Is she wearing lipstick? And so on.

Halfway through the shower, ask the bride to leave the room. Give guests a pencil and paper. Ask your questions, allowing enough time for guests to write short responses. Then call the bride back to the room. The correct answers will be very obvious! Award a prize to the winners.

* Or, write the questions quickly after the bride arrives, so you can tailor your questions more precisely.

There are many, many other great bridal shower games to play, but few are easier than these. So relax and enjoy the role of the hostess of the bachelorette party!
