The bridal shower is one of the very few wedding-related events where the bride isn’t involved in any of the planning. The crucial job of planning the bridal shower is usually left to the bridal party, as well as sometimes the bride and mothers. There’s no doubt they want to make this day a special event for not just the guest of honor, but also all of the other friends and family members in attendance.

To help get the planning started and ensure that the bridal shower your planning isn’t boring, here are some fun games and stunning decoration ideas that will wow all of the bridal shower guests.

Bride and Groom

1. He Said, She Said

For this classic game, brides will pull sentences out a bowl and read them aloud to the party, says Janessa White from Simply Eloped. "The guests will then have to guess if that's something that the bride or groom said. This is a fun way to see if your guests really know you!"

Coasters

2. Advice for Bride and Groom

These fun coasters, serve as both cute decor items and an activity for guests at the shower. You can even have guests read their tips out loud, which could make for some funny moments.

3. Find The Guest

Find the Guest is another great game to start the mingling at a bridal party, says White. "While everyone knows the bride, chances are that not everyone knows each other. This game is simple to set up and play, all you need is a bingo-like sheet filled with fun facts each guest."

Bar

4. Create Your Own Cocktail

Ask guests to create their very own signature cocktail at the shower, with the bride taste testing each one to choose the winner. The grand prize can be a featured spot as the signature drink at the wedding reception!

Paper

5. Ice Breaker

Bridal showers bring lots of different ladies together. "Get each girl to write down her most embarrassing moment. Put them all into a bowl and get the bride to pick them out one at a time and guess the gal whose embarrassing moment it is--this is a great way to get everyone involved and get the party started," says Sinead Starrs of The Lovely Little Label.

Puzzle

6. Puzzle Play

Scatter puzzle pieces on each table and have guests work together to complete each one. You can have the puzzles work with your bridal shower theme, or just choose ones that complete cute (puppies, babies) or pretty (flowers, tropical locales) pictures.

Centerpiece

7. Flower Arranging

Set up a floral station with some vases, cheap flowers are other accessories and have guests "compete" to find out who can create the most beautiful centerpiece. The bride will make the final pick, with the winner going home with a small prize. Best of all: Those arrangements now serve as decor for the party!
