How To Play Bridal Shower Bingo
Wedding shower bingo is fun and it’s easy! The center square is free! Have your guests fill this in with the gift they brought.
They’ll have to earn the rest of the squares. Fill each one out with questions that only your close bridal party will know the answers to. Fun examples include “The Bride’s College Roommate”, “Unhealthy obsession with shoes”, or “Where the newlyweds are going for their honeymoon”. Each player writes down their answers. Then, the host reads the answers out loud as players mark the ones they got correct.
Markers can be as simple as a penciled in checkmark or you can get creative by providing stamps, stickers, or ornamental markers. Whoever gets the most questions right, wins!
A variation of this game also starts with placing your name and the gift you brought in the center of the board. Rather than having the bride or host fill out the rest of the square with questions, the squares are filled with a list of all of the gifts. Each player takes a guess at which guest brought what gift. Once everyone is done filling in their guesses, each guest announces out loud what they brought. Again, each player marks off each time they were right. The player with the best guesses wins!
Perfect Way To Help Guests To Know Each Other Better
Bridal Bingo is a great game to break the ice. It doesn’t take a long time to set up – thanks to our handy printable cards – and takes very little thought to play.
As long as you get the questions right, your whole party will have a great time with this game. Using inside jokes and making the questions about your guests makes it personal. This causes people to reminisce and laugh at the good old days.
If some of your guests aren’t familiar with each other, this game is a great introduction. Swap out questions about the bride and groom and replace them with trivia about the guests. Your party will have a great time guessing which clue matches their new friends. Either way, It gets your guests talking, and who doesn’t love to scream “Bingo!”?

Although many of the modern variations are a little more popular these days, many brides prefer the traditional version. This is played like normal Bingo. You can replace the word “Bingo” with the word “Bride”. Players only need to complete a single horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line to win the game.
Each square can contain a number, or, each square can contain facts about the bride and groom. In both cases, the host shouts the numbers or facts until a player wins!
Your guests will have tons of fun with the classic version. Winning is purely up to chance, so there’s no need to worry about the maid of honor winning every time because she happens to know the most about the couple or the other guests. Everyone has a fair chance of winning and guaranteed fun!
