6. DIY Bridal Shower Pinata

Pinatas are popular for parties and events. Not only are these very fun but the people playing can also win prizes and treats. For a bridal shower you can make a wedding theme pinata like this one. It is glamorous and shaped like a wedding cake. If you like crafts, you can have a go at making a similar one yourself. There are tutorials for this online.

7. Advice for the Bride Book

Another fun activity you can have at the bridal shower is advice for the bride. Each guest writes down their own piece of advice and the bride-to-be can read it after the shower. Not only is this a great and easy activity but the bride can keep it as a memory to. You can do this with any plain book and just decorate the front.

8. Stylish Bridal Shower Bar Idea

Consider having a bar area at the bridal shower. It will make the shower look extra special and you can serve a mix of drinks both with alcohol and without. You could create a bar like this one. Have cute chalkboards on the wall over a table and have drinks on the table. We love the sign “eat, drink and be married”.

9. Unique Kiss Game Idea

If you want a unique bridal shower activity, then this could be what you are looking for. This is a picture with the words “kiss the miss goodbye.” Each guest then kisses the picture and signs their name. It is like a creative and quirky guestbook. The bride can also keep this as a memory to.

10. Cute Tea Bridal Shower Favors

A popular bridal shower theme is afternoon tea. Afternoon tea showers include pretty decorations, cakes and tea. For a shower like this one you could give out cute tea favors like these. Each teabag has a sign like “love is brewing”. We love this unique idea.

    The picture of the Love Hula Hoop sign is actually my image, not the site you credited. If you can change the credit to the original source, you can keep it up! Otherwise I would like to ask you to remove it. Thanks!
