#7: He Said, She Said

This game will reveal all the bride’s secrets and will let the guests guess how the bride and groom’s love story truly unfolded.

How to play: Make the guests guess the important facts of the bride’s love life with questions like, "Who said I love you first?" or "Where did they go on their first date?" You can make cards with the questions or if you are short on ideas, you can get some custom-made cards available on Etsy!

What you will need:

1. Cards with questions

2. Pens and pencils. You can also play it without the cards if you simply ask the question to the party and make them shout out their answers

#8: Save the Date

Keep your guests on the move with this amazing bridal shower game as they run back and forth to guess the correct dates of the bride and groom’s most memorable moments.

How to play: Give the bride a list of important dates of significant events in the couple's love story (date of their first date, date of their engagement, etc.). Make cutouts of these dates (several of each date) and place them on a table across the room from the bride. Have the bride call out the event and watch the guests scramble to find the correct date and run across the room to give it to the bride first! 

What you will need:

1. Paper to make date cutouts

2. A list of the events that are important to the bride and groom

#9: Pin the Moustache on the Groom

This is an old classic but nevertheless one of the best bridal shower games. The game will make sure that your party stays lively and interactive.

How to play: The guests are blindfolded one at a time and asked to pin a moustache on a printed cut out of the groom’s face. But you will have to make sure that the groom does not already have a moustache!

What you will need:

1. An enlarged printout of the groom’s face stuck on a firm cardboard

2. An easel to prop up the groom’s face

3. A printed moustache with pin attached

#10: Pen a Poem

A bride in love will never get tired of hearing romantic poems. But having your guests blindly thread together a romantic poem might test that theory!

How to play: Hand out a sheet of paper and pen to a guest to write down any line of romantic poetry, either self-composed or from a famous poet which they feel is applicable to the bride. Each guest will fold the sheet over so the line they wrote cannot be seen by the next person it's passed to. We promise you'll get a disjointed, funny poem about love which is sure to make the bride and your guests smile.

What you will need: A sheet of paper and a pen and your imagination!

Measurement Guide and Size Chart



Taking Your Measurements


Wearing the undergarments that you will wear with the dress, wrap the measuring tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust.


Stand up straight and bend to the side, the crease created is your natural waist. Wrap tape around the narrowest part of your natural waist.


Stand with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and seat.



Ordering the Right Size:

Compare your three measurements to the size chart above. We recommend ordering the largest of the three sizes. Our size chart is standard, meaning, it fits one general body type! With the wide variety of body types, it is rare to find an exact fit, therefore, alterations are recommended to achieve a perfect fit!

If you have any questions on what size to order one of our representatives would love to assist you in the process. Reach out to info@kennedyblue.com or chat online M-F 10am-4pm CST.
