Hosting a bridal shower is no easy feat — from planning the menu to keeping track of gifts, it takes organization and detailed planning to pull off a seamless and fun event. With all the planning involved, it’s easy to put games on the back burner.

But the games you play at a bridal shower serve more of a purpose than having fun. They’re an opportunity for guests to bond and learn more about each other, the bridal party, and most importantly, the bride.

Here at Destination Brides, we love learning more about brides and giving each bride an opportunity to tell her story. And a good game of Jeopardy is the perfect way to do so. So we’ve created a *free* template you can use to host the perfect game at your next bridal shower. Plus, we’ve compiled over 100 questions you can use to fill the board.

How to Play Jeopardy at a Bridal Shower

First, it’s important to make sure you have access to a large screen, like a television or projector. You’ll also need a way to get the game on your screen, whether it’s an HDMI hookup to your laptop or casting from your phone. While setting up, make sure nobody sees any of the answers to the questions.

We recommend splitting everyone into 3–5 teams to play the game. You can create teams based on people who know each other well, or mix it up and let it be a mingling opportunity. Have the teams roll a dice or try to guess a number in your head to determine who will go first.

One way to play is to give each team a buzzer so they can buzz in when they know the answer to a question. However, this can get pretty chaotic with a large group. An alternate method is to let teams take turns picking a question and trying to answer. If a team misses the question, the next team can have a chance at answering it.

Delegate a bridesmaid to keep track of which questions have been answered and how many points each team has. At the end of the game, the team with the most points wins a prize, like mini lotions or $5 Starbucks gift cards.

You can make changes to the game for extra personalization or added fun, like adding Double Jeopardy or having a Final Jeopardy round where teams can wager all the points they’ve earned on a major question. It’s your game — play it how you want!

How to Use the Template

Below you’ll see a link to a Google Slides presentation with everything in place. To use the template, go to “File,” then “Make a Copy.” This will allow you to edit your own version of the template.

First, edit the title slide to include the bride’s name. Then, decide on five different categories to use for the game. We’ve added some category ideas down below for inspiration, or come up with your own! If the bride has a favorite movie or band, for instance, you can add trivia on that topic.

Now it’s time to go in and add questions. Click the link for each question. At the top of the slide it should have the category number, which you can edit to match the category’s name, and the question number. This will ensure you’re placing each question and answer in the right place.

To present, click the “Slideshow” button in the top-right corner of the screen. This will take you to the title slide, which you can keep up while you get everyone into teams and explain the rules. Click anywhere on the screen (or use the left arrow key) to progress to the game board.

When a team picks their question, simply click the number of the question to jump to it. Once a team guesses the right answer, you can click “Reveal Answer” to show the correct answer. At any point, clicking “Back to Board” will take you to the main game board.

Make sure whoever’s running the presentation is careful where they click so nothing gets revealed prematurely!

Finish That Love Song Lyric

The game is simple: guests receive the beginning of a song lyric and have to say what comes afterwards. You can give bonus points if they sing it, or make it a requirement.
