Summertime is fast approaching and you know what that means: Wedding season. If you’re a maid of honor or bridesmaid weddings equal buying a new dress, pitching in for the bachelorette party and finding trendy bridal shower games and gifts.
One section of the party that guests either love or hate is the games. It’s hard enough as the maid of honor to host and try to get different groups to socialize. So make it easy on yourself and bring in some fun and trendy bridal shower games and gifts that everyone will love.
Use one or all of the games listed below to break the ice among guests and include some unique and one-of-a-kind products prizes to make this a bridal shower they’ll never forget.
Goal: For each guest to find as many items as possible in their purse that match a pre-planned list.

How to Play: Set a timer for 10 minutes and watch the guests scramble through their purses and try to add up the points. Once the time is up, yell hands off the bags and start to call out numbers to see how many points people have. Tell the guests to keep their hands raised if they have a certain amount of points.
