Introduction Your guest are going to love you! Including funny games at a bridal shower is something everyone can appreciate! So this guide has everything you need to host some really funny games. Want to take the average bridal shower game to the next level? In addition to basic game instructions, well also show you how to incorporate a bridal shower piñata into your festivities. Since bridal showers tend to be classy affairs, we assume youll be using a pull-string piñata. No bats or blindfolds required. Even the fuddy-duddies can play! And trust us, even the stodgiest of guests cant wait to see what falls out of a piñata! For some very creative ideas on how to include your guests in a piñata surprise for the bride, visit www.pantypinata.com www.pantypinata.com Create Laughter. Break the Ice. Honor the Bride.
Pass the Bouquet Version One: Game is similar to musical chairs. Everyone sits in a circle. Hostess hands first person a bouquet and starts the music. Guests pass the bouquet until the music stops. Whoever is holding the bouquet is out. Last person holding bouquet wins a small prize. Version Two: Instead of a bouquet, hostess wraps a corsage in a gift box. Guests are told that whoever is left holding the box at the end of the game has to wear whatever in inside the box ALL NIGHT. Naturally, theyll assume its something embarrassing and will therefore pass the box quickly. PIÑATA TWIST: Instead of being out, whoever is left holding the bouquet, gets to pull a string!
The Newlywed Game OBJECTIVE: See how well the bride and groom know each other. Or, actually, see how well the bride knows her groom (because shes guessing what hell say, even though the truth as she remembers it might be a little different!) BEFORE THE SHOWER: Ask the groom 20 or so questions about the bride and their relationship. AT THE SHOWER: Ask the bride the same questions. Remember, shes trying to guess how her groom would answer. PIÑATA TWIST: Let the bride pull a string with every correct answer!

Great Newlywed Questions to ask the Groom Thanks to: http://www.endlessgames.com/instr/newlywed.pdf for inspiring these great questions!
Memory Lane OBJECTIVE: Guests share funny stories of the bride. HOW TO PLAY: Guests write down a funny memory they share with the bride. Put memories in a hat. Bride draws a memory, reads it aloud and guesses who penned the memory. Hostess would be wise to keep the guest list in mind when giving directions to this game (Grandma might not appreciate stories about Tabletop dancing!) PIÑATA TWIST: Have guests tie their memories to small gifts, which they put into the piñata. When the piñata is opened, the bride can hold up each gift, read the memory, and guess the gift-giver.
How Much Has She Been Talking? OBJECTIVE: Guests get to learn a little more about the bride and the wedding she has planned. AT THE PARTY: The host gives everyone (or teams of two) a noise maker. Host reads the question aloud and the first person to buzz in gets to guess. Person (or team) with the most correct answers, wins a prize. See the next page for great questions to ask the bride in advance of the party. PIÑATA TWIST: Guest with the correct answer gets to pull a string!

Lucky You! Prior to guests arriving at the party, tape a variety of items to the bottom of different party items. For example, you can tape a coin to the bottom of a chair, a stamp to the bottom of a vase, a photo of the bride to the bottom of a dessert plate. Early in the party, ask everyone to look under their chair. Whoever finds the coin, wins a bridal shower gift (i.e., scented candle, bookmark, book, frame). Let guests know that there are x# of prizes to be won, they only need to find the rest of the items you have hidden throughout the party. When someone finds a hidden object, they need to call out and the gift will be awarded! PIÑATA TWIST: Tell guests that the piñata is full of treats for THEM. When they find a hidden object, they get to pull a string.
Sign Your Name Shower hostess provides a pack of Thank You Cards and asks each guest to write their own name and address on the stamped thank you card envelope. Then, raffle-style, the bride mixes them all together and picks a bridal shower winner to get a memorable gift. And the bride gets to take home pre-addressed Thank You cards! PIÑATA TWIST: Draw envelopes and read the names to see who gets to pull a string next. Thank You!
Lingerie Surprise! Before the Shower: Hostess asks guests to purchase a pair of panties for the bride. Each guest is asked to tie a message for the bride to the pair of panties, without signing their names! At the Shower: Guests sneak their gift into the piñata. When the contents fall out, the bride can hold them up, read the message and try to guess the giver. Hang panties on a line for a pretty and unique shower decoration. PIÑATA TWIST: Use any of the games weve shared to determine who gets to pull the next string!
