Bridal Showers don’t have to be all about tea and gift unwrapping. There are many ways to have bridal showers be more interactive so the guests can get to know each other. We collected a list of fun bridal shower activities that are a bit different and a lot of fun.
Out together a DIY perfume making station for the guests to try their hand at mixing their own perfumes. You can also print out cute personalized labels for them they’re done and make for a great favor for guests. There are numerous places online where you can order these easy-to-use kits. We recommend The Fragrance Shop and Vetiver Aromatics.
For brides with a green thumb, having your guests plant their own adorable succulents is a relaxing and fun activity. Succulents are great because they’re low maintenance and don’t require large pots. Have paint and ribbon for the guests to decorate their pots as well. We recommend Simply Succulents and Succulents and Sunshine.
Get extra crafty with an afternoon of scrapbook making for all the guests. Stock up on supplies and have a creative afternoon for guests to write memories and advice for the bride. Ask the guests beforehand to bring their favorite photos with the bride or anything else they want to include in the scrapbook. At the end, put the book together and give it to the bride as a super meaningful gift!
Bridal Field Day
For brides who love keeping active and the outdoors, why not plan a field day with games like ultimate frisbee, tug-o-war, sac race, and yard bowling. Finish off with a water balloon fight. This is a great way for all the guests to get to know each other. It can even be combined with the groomsmen for the ultimate wedding party afternoon. Just make sure to tell the guests to dress comfortably.
Last but not least, this bridal shower activity is for brides who love to bake. Bake a bunch of cupcakes and let them to cool. Buy colorful frosting and cute decorations for the guests to get creative with. Make sure to take a lot of photos and then enjoy over a cup of tea!
