Don’t Say Bride or Wedding Game
Supplies: Clothes pins, necklace or bracket and listening skills

Just like Don’t Cross Your Legs, the Don’t Say Bride or Wedding game is an active background game that can be played during the shower.

Don’t Say Bride or Wedding Game Play & Rules
Each guest receives a clothes pin (bracelet, necklace, maybe add a mini veil for fun) as they arrive and explain to the guests only once: If you catch someone saying the word ‘Bride’ or ‘Wedding’ you get to take their clothes pin (or item used). The first person to say, Can I have the clothes pin (name of item) receives the clothes pin/item. We recommend (but you can change the rules): The guest can only loose one clothes pin per violation. So if the player had 4 and says bride, she can only loose 1 pin and now has 3 clothes pins.

Often you will have someone say “You said bride or You said wedding give me your clothes pin”, when they just said the words that can not be said right there! The guest with the most pins at the end of the shower is the winner.

Game Decision:
Decide before the wedding shower whether someone can steal all or just one clothes pin if they hear a person say bride or wedding.

I like the idea of one at a time because it keeps more people in the game, however when someone has 5 or 10 pins it is pretty impressive to see people work hard to try and trick that person into saying “the words that can not be said.”

Change the word (to suit your event) and play at Baby Showers or any social gathering.
