Bridal Shower Games

I received a lot of questions about which games were played and some of the guests wanted to know if there was a list of the answers so here you go! We played 2 quick games at the shower. One I saw on Pinterest a long time ago and pinned it to my wedding board. The other one was  newlywed style game that I loved!

Game number 1: He Said… She Said…
The idea of the game is to guess who posted what on their Facebook Page.
I’ll let you have fun guessing but the answers are at the bottom. Even Ryan and I struggled with a few.

  1. I’m so glad you shared your Newlywed game answers. What a fun idea! Some of those are difficult questions! I’m going to see how well Bill & I do with them. I bet we won’t match as many as I think we should after so many years. It’s all about what comes to mind immediately and you guys did really well!
