A great way to kick off these bridal shower games! Make sure the list of forbidden words isn’t too long and that there will be plenty of ties it’ll come up in conversation.

What You Will Need: Get a bag of cute plastic rings, if you can get assorted shapes, they can show off each other’s rings and have fun with them anyway. A writing board, coloured chalk or markers. Stores like “Itzz A Party” or “Party Place” have tonnes of options.

How To Play: Make a list of four or five words that the guests are not supposed to say. If they do, the one who catches them steals their ring. The one that collects the most, will be the winner. Words like the bride’s name, “groom,” “wedding” etc. can be a lot of fun. The winner gets a little something, a gift card from a nice store is a good option.

Make it interesting by probably adding a sheet of interesting stickers that the guests can stick while they sign.
