Before your bride-to-be ties the knot and whisks away with her special someone, the bridal shower is a chance to celebrate with closest friends and family. Opening gifts is a main focus of the bridal shower, so why not organize a fun and interactive game to break the ice?
As you gather around and watch the bride open her gifts, bridal shower bingo is the perfect way to liven things up, interact with other guests and be a part of the process.
Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered with our guide on how to play bridal shower bingo, including free printable bingo cards!
How to Play Bridal Shower Bingo
- At the beginning of the bridal shower, distribute bingo cards and pens to each guest.
- Instruct guests to completely fill in each box of their card with potential bridal shower gifts the bride may receive. Even if guests share or overhear ideas, each card will differ and vary based on the placement of the gifts on the bingo card.
- When it comes time to open gifts, have the guests gather around the designated gift-opening area and focus on the bride.
- As the bride opens a gift, guests will cross out their card if it matches. The first guest to get five correct gifts in a row, vertical, horizontal or diagonal will call out “Bingo!” and win a prize.
