One of my favorite bridal shower games is “Guess What the Groom Said.” Keep reading to see how to play Guess What the Groom Said, plus tons of ideas for questions to ask!
Wedding season is upon us and I already have a handful of wedding invites for the summer. Because I know I’m not the only one, I thought I’d share some wedding guest-related content as well as bridal party content. These are the years when we’re all attending bachelorette parties, baby showers, engagement parties, etc.!
First up is my favorite bridal shower (or bachelorette party) game: “Guess What the Groom Said.”
How to Play Guess What the Groom Said
It involves quizzing the bride-to-be and comparing her answers to the groom’s. It’s kind of like the Newlywed Game. You take a list of questions and email them to the groom. Then you just read off that list and quiz the bride to see if she guesses the correct answer.
You can find printables on Pinterest and Etsy for these or just do what I did, and send an email to the groom and print the answers to read yourself.
The questions range from simple like asking about their favorite food to funny and also sweet when you get to hear their responses to relationship questions.
The game is an easy way for all the guests to learn more about the couple and they can partake in guessing too.
Plus, even though some of the questions and answers can be funny, it’s not an overly embarrassing game so even a more shy bride will enjoy it too.
Can you play this game at a Bachelorette party?
We played this game at the bridal shower, but it also works for a bachelorette party. If you decide to play this at the bachelorette party, you could challenge the bride to have a sip of her drink every time she gives an incorrect answer.
Questions for Guess What the Groom Said
Here’s a list of questions you can send to the groom. You can cut questions that end up having boring answers or any ones that you think the couple wouldn’t want to answer. Or add your own too!
Questions About You (the Groom):
What’s your favorite food?
What’s your favorite movie?
What’s your favorite band?
What’s your favorite restaurant?
What’s your go-to alcoholic drink?
What was your first job?
What’s your dream vacation spot?
What’s the best gift you’ve received from the bride?
What chore do you hate the most?
Are you a morning or night person?
If the bride were to throw out one piece of your clothing, what would it be?
What’s your irrational fear?
If you could have any pet animal what would it be?
What’s one thing you cannot live without?
What’s your go-to karaoke song?
*When asking the bride these questions, phrase it as “What’s the grooms favorite food?” and so on.
