#1: Honeymoon Bag Memory Game
In this article by Kim Stoegbauer for diynetwork.com she gives us several very fun options for bridal shower games, but our favorite is the “what’s in the bag memory game”. The idea is that you buy a cute bag that is then gifted to the bride and fill it with fun things to take on her honeymoon, like sunglasses, a magazine, some sunblock, silly lingerie, whatever you like. Then you have the contestants look at the bag and study it for a few minutes. At this point, you take the bag away and give everyone a card to write down all the items they remember being in the bag. The person who has the most correct items wins. It is lots of fun and you end up with a great gift for the bride. See the details on this and other games by reading the full article here.
