Now that it’s May, if you’re a twenty- or thirty-something you’re probably finding yourself in the middle of Bridal Shower season. If you’re in the bridal party, you may even be responsible for planning one of these bridal showers. One of the most popular bridal shower games these days is the Bridal Shower Question Card Game. Why? It’s not overly embarrassing, it’s low energy, and it kind of reminds all of us of those quizzes we used to love taking online. Today, I’m compiling all of my resources for the bridal shower question game in one place. This post will answer:

What is the Bridal Shower Question Card Game?
The Bridal Shower Question Card Game is a game used at bridal showers where you ask the groom a series of approximately 20-30 questions before the shower and then ask the bride those same questions during the shower and see if she can come up with the same answers the groom did.
This is a great game to get to learn more about the couple that’s not super over the top or interactive.
I was first introduced to the Bridal Shower Question Card Game by my friend Marie. Above you can see photos of what her Bridal Shower Question Game Cards looked like. You will see from this post that you can dress the cards up, or dress them down based on your needs (and the amount of time you have).
How do I execute the Bridal Shower Question Card Game?
- Choose a list of 20-30 questions about the Bride and Groom’s relationship, the Bride, or the Groom.
- Ask the Groom these questions ahead of time.
- Decide what’s going to happen if the Bride gets a question right or wrong. If she gets it right, she might just be safe, she might get a piece of candy, get a dollar, or she might get to take a happy-face photo with the card. If she gets it wrong she might have to add a(nother) piece of gum to her mouth, eat a Bertie Bott’s jellybean, get a pie in the face, or she might have to take a sad-face photo with the card itself.
- Transfer the questions and answers on to cards to be read during the bridal shower.
- Sit the Bride down in the chair of honor and read her each question asking her to guess the Groom’s response.
Feel free to spread the cards out among the guests so everybody gets a chance to participate.

How do I make my own Bridal Shower Question Card Game Cards?
Making your own Bridal Shower Question Cards is very easy. The only things you need are card stock in a color that matches the Bridal Shower colors and a marker. If you’re looking to jazz them up a little bit you can buy ribbon, stickers, glitter, or watercolors to match them to the bridal shower theme. Here are a few ideas I came up with when making my own:
If you’re not into the DIY scene, you can use these pre-made Bridal Shower Question Game cards for your own shower. They are the size of half sheets of paper and have the 30 questions listed above on them.
What is another idea for a Bridal Shower Game?
Another favorite bridal shower game is the “What’s in Your Purse” game. The premise is that you come up with a list of items that everybody might be able to find in their purses. Right before the game starts, everyone grabs their purse, and then the game facilitator reads out a list of items. The first one to find the item in their purse wins. It’s also pretty low key, no one is put on the spot, and it’s always kind of fun to see what kind of treasures you can find in your purse. You can learn more about the What’s In Your Purse game here.
