Quick Virtual Wedding Shower Games

Guess the Memory

This is a great game for recalling your fondest memories with the bride.

It is wonderful for bringing the group closer together!

Instead of the guests winning points, it is all on the bride to guess correctly whose memory she is part of.

How to Play Guess the Memory

Each group member anonymously shares their fondest memory with the host. 

An easy way to do this is to have all members send the written memory to the host via a Google Doc then the host compiles all the memories together on one sheet that they can read from.

If this a last minute shower, have the the guests message you their memory privately in the comments section of Zoom.

Next, the host reads one memory and the bride guesses whose memory that is.

Required Materials

How to Play Truth or Dare

Each member of the group chooses either truth or dare, or you let them spin this wheel to choose their fate!

Depending on where the wheel falls, they either have to answer a question or perform a dare.

Bridal Bingo – Four Fun Versions

A timeless game, bingo can be played from anywhere and on so many different topics!

You can organize this game of bingo before the event or if you are in a rush, have the I do crew create their own boards.

We’ll explain how below.

How to Play Bridal Bingo

There are four ways to play Bridal Bingo.

The first version is pretty casual.

Distribute bingo cards which include words that will probably come up in conversation while the bridal shower takes place for example ‘bride’, ‘groom’, ‘I do’.

Check out these cards as an example.

If you can’t get hard copy bingo sheets to the virtual bridal shower gang before the party, there is always digital files!

The second version of Bridal Bingo is more structured.

Distribute your pre-prepared bingo sheets by post or electronically.

Ask the girls to get the bingo cards out and the host calls out questions, then the guests look to their bingo cards for the answer.

For example, “The name of the bride’s first pet” or, if you want to include the whole wedding party “Someone who hates eating tomatoes.” 

Since the latter version is more personal, it is one of the better bridal shower game ideas for getting to know all the women attending the wedding.

The third version is a huge cheat option used by teachers who haven’t prepared an assessment!

The host writes/types up at least 16 words associated with the wedding couple or the group on phone notes, a Google Doc, or Canva and displays it via shared screen.

They then ask guests to draw a table with nine boxes, three up and three along.

Next, the guests choose nine words from the 16 on display and adds each word to a box.

The host reads out the question to the answers in the box and the guests score it off if they have it.

For all three options, whoever scores off a vertical or horizontal lines shouts BINGO and if they get every item they shout HOUSE!

You can also make this one of social distancing bridal shower games that involves booze – this is our fourth and final version of Bridal Bingo.

Make the bride’s ride or dies take a sip whenever a word is said throughout the virtual bridal shower or down a drink when one standout phrase like ‘wife’ or ‘Mrs.’ is mentioned.

Required Materials

Generic bridal shower bingo sheets or unique bingo cards created for each member with facts about members of the bridal party.

The conference calling app, Zoom is the most popular option for hosting a virtual party as it has lots of features that are great for online group events.

Before the bridal party, log in to Zoom and get used to the basic features such as accepting guests to the party, muting guests, commenting, and sharing your screen.

If the virtual bridal shower is to last more than 40 minutes you will need to have access to a premium Zoom account.

Other free options which are similar but don’t offer quite as much functionality are Google Meet and Signal.

You can share the Zoom wedding shower link to the before the event takes place and also tell the guests what resources they will need such as access to Zoom, pens, paper, alcohol, and any dress requirements.

It is handy if you have a partner who is helping you host the virtual bridal party because they can gather answers from the comments, add up scores, and let people in when the inevitable happens and WiFi cuts out for some guests.

Give all of the guests your number and the helper’s number just in case there are any entry issue!

Another useful tip is to have scoring resources created beforehand so you or the helper can quickly count up marks and announce winners.

Depending on how many games you are playing, you may need several score sheets.

Also, prizes! You will need to think about what prizes people can win and how they get them.

Finally, some things will go wrong so don’t stress too much about it!

Have a list of must-do virtual bridal games and a separate list of games you could do if there is time that way there won’t be a lull.
