Roll of Sharing Icebreaker Game
The object of the game is to get people to tell
the group about themselves. After everyone is seated in a circle
start the game by bringing out a roll of toilet paper. Without
telling them what the game is about ask the shower guests to pass the
roll around the circle and "take as many sheets as you think you will
need". Each guest must take something from the roll.
When they are done explain that they are to share one thing with the
group about themselves for each sheet of toilet paper they have.
This is a fun game and gets really crazy for the ladies that take 20 or
Skittles Icebreaker Game
This is played very similar to the "Roll of
Sharing" game above except instead of passing around a roll of toilet
paper a dish of skittles is passed around the group. Tell the

they chose. Example: Green = Personal, Yellow = Interests,

Song Lyrics Icebreaker Game
Choose well known songs about love, weddings and marriage. Write
down several lines from each song on a piece of paper and then cut the
lyrics in half. Mix up the lyrics and place them in a bowl or
basket. As guests arrive for the bridal shower have them choose a
piece of paper. Tell them they must try and find the guest with
the other half of the lyrics.
Icebreaker Bridal Ball Game
Buy a pretty blow up beach ball (preferably pink
or pastel colored) and use a permanent marker to write different
questions all over the ball. While guests are sitting in a circle
have them throw the ball to one another and when they catch it which
ever question their right thumb is touching is the questions they must
answer. The more questions you can fit on the ball the better!
The questions you write on the ball can be:
General questions about the guests:
What color is your car? Where do you work? How many years have you
been married? What is your favorite color? Do you have any
scars? What is your favorite restaurant? etc.
How well do they know the bride:
When did you meet the bride? Funny story about you and the bride?
What is the bride's favorite dessert? Where did the couple meet?
Wedding related: Why does
the bride throw the bouquet? Why is the wedding ring worn on the
left hand? What toast would you give the bride? Who is the
Name Tag Name
Fun and silly and very simple to do. Buy
large nametags and on each one write a wedding related item. (See
list below) When bridal shower guests arrive at the party give
them each a nametag and tell them that from now on they will be known by
that name. They must respond to that name and only call others by
their nametag name. Each time they mess up and call someone
by the wrong name they must place a coin (penny, nickel, dime or
quarter) in a cute piggy bank for the bride and groom.
Instead of making the guests give coins to the couple give each
guest several Mardi Gras beads along with their nametag. When they
mess up they have to give the person who caught them one strand of their
beads. The guest with the most beads at the end wins.
List of names you could use on the nametags:
Marry, Cake, Party, Flower, Diamond, Ring, Rose, Gardenia, Veil,
Bouquet, Petal, Dove, Rice, Honey, Moon, Toast, Kiss, Garland,
