I’ve been planning my best friend Jackie’s bridal shower for over a month now. One of my biggest concerns with bridal showers (and baby showers) is the games. Listen, I’ve been to my fair share of showers and most of the time the games are REALLY cheesy. So I wanted to be sure that I didn’t host a bridal shower with cheesy games. I’m so thoughtful aren’t I?
While perusing the internet machine in an attempt to find some “cool games”, I stumbled across the idea of Bridal Mad Libs. Ummm how fun?!?!? I haven’t done Mad Libs since I was a kid. This would definitely be fun!
Now, the key to Mad Libs is reminding folks of how nouns, verbs, and adjectives are used in the English language. If you aren’t a teacher or a communications professional you will need a little refresher (I PROMISE you). Remember: nouns = person, place, or thing, verbs = actions, adjectives = descriptors <-- you like my mini refresher course there?!?!
Also, you need to decide how you want to play the game. Do you want to have people interview other people like we did back in grade school? Do you want them to be funny? Do you want folks to answer them on their own? My choice: let them be fun if folks want to be fun, let them interview (one person, one time) if that will help a group of people who don’t know each other mingle, and let them answer on their own if they don’t want to do the interview thang. Just make it fun and give them options.
When everyone has completed their Mad Lib, take a moment to review them and pick out some of the funniest and sweetest to read in front of the entire group. Then be sure to give them all to the bride, as a memento, before she leaves the shower.
I, OF COURSE, put together a Mad Lib for you use and customize. I printed these out on white 5.5 x 7.5 card stock I picked up from Michaels (you know, my favorite craft store). I will tell you these print better when you PDF them. Otherwise Microsoft Office gets all weird and throws some of the lines off. Also, please note that I would probably change some of the spaces where I included adjectives and nouns. I did them late one night and once I started reading through them and tried to fill it out at the shower, it was harder than I thought!

I used various, non-standard, fonts throughout the doc. Here are the fonts you’ll need to download if you want to use those that are pictured (they are all free):
Let me know if you use them and if you do the funny ones, because honestly, that was the best part!!
