The First Kiss Fun Bridal Shower Games: This is a fun game and can be a great ice breaker for the guests who do not know each other. You can start this game by asking the maid of honor to tell the story of the first time she was kissed by her finance. The other guests can contribute as well. To make it fun you can have a panel of guests who will rate the best kiss story. The one who gets the highest points turns out to be the winner. Here you need to keep in mind that the maid of honor should not feel embarrassed.
Paper Bag Peek-A-Boo Game: For this game you will need some paper bags. Hand out one bag each to your guests and ask then to cover their face with the bags. Then the host will start by asking the guests to remove one thing at a time. You can start it with watch, earing..etc. Then move on to clothes and other things. The smart ones will be smart enough to take off their bags over their heads and see what others our up to and have a hearty laugh on those who innocently keep removing their accessories and clothes. The one who does not take the bag off, will get a nice gift for her innocence.
Love Will Melt Your Heart Bridal Shower Games: Prepare ice cubes by placing a heart-shaped candy in each cube before they freeze. Then drop each ice cube into a dixie cup and distribute to guests. Instruct them that, without touching the ice cube itself, they can use any body part to warm the cup to try and melt the ice. The first person to melt their ice cube enough to retrieve their candy wins the game. Hilarity ensues as guests use various body parts to try to get their ice to melt. Game can run simultaneously while food is served, etc.

Safety Pin Bridal Shower Games : Though it sounds easy but its not. For this game you will need a bag of rice, some safety pins and a blind fold. First fill a large mixing bowl half full with rice (long grain works best) mix in about 50 or so small to medium safety pins with blind fold on have each person try to grab as many pins they can in a 30 second time frame.

Some Bridal Shower Etiquettes:
It is customary to throw the bridal shower four to six weeks before the wedding.
Do not forget to invite the mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom to the bridal shower
It is a general practice to invite the sisters of the groom as well
This is an important point to keep in mind. The people who are not invited to the wedding should not be invited to the bridal shower.
These days it has become trendy to have couples shower. But do remember this can double your guests list and can move out of your budget.
Also don; t miss the bride's closest friends and coworkers. She might miss them through out the shower party.
