Bridal Shower Bingo Free Templates

Bridal Shower Bingo

Here are some free downloadable bridal shower bingo templates you can use to play this easy game at a bridal shower.

This ‘Find the Guest’ themed bridal shower bingo template is the perfect game to play if members of the bridal party don’t know each other because the game involves getting to know other guests.

To play this version of bridal shower bingo, you’ll have to get to know other guests and find out facts about them. If one of the facts matches one of the phrases in a bingo box, you can tick off that bingo box.

This customizable bridal shower bingo template has empty boxes, so it can be used to create a bingo game that’s unique to the bride and her bridal party.

How to Play Bridal Shower Bingo

The rules of bridal shower bingo are similar to the rules of a traditional game of bingo. Each player needs a card (such as the templates listed above) and something to mark the card with, like a pen or stamp.

The card will list certain phrases in boxes. In traditional bingo, the boxes contain different numbers.

The aim is to cross out five boxes in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. In a typical bingo game, somebody will be the nominated ‘caller,’ and they will call out the numbers or phrases. You should then mark the box that contains that number or phrase.

The game continues until somebody has five boxes marked in a row. That player will call ‘bingo!’ to win the game. Traditionally, the winner of a game of bridal shower bingo receives a gift.

Bridal shower bingo follows similar rules, but there are a few versions of the game that can be played differently.

‘Find The Guest’ Bridal Bingo

Unlike traditional bingo, ‘Find the Guest’ bridal shower bingo involves walking around and talking to other players. Each box in the template contains a description, such as ‘is not a drinker’ or ‘has a tattoo’. The center square has no description and is automatically included in the final count.

Here’s how to play ‘Find the Guest’ bridal shower bingo:

  1. Each player starts with a bridal shower bingo card and a pen.
  2. Players should walk around and mingle with other players.
  3. Each player should ask other players questions about themselves to see if the other players fit any of the descriptions on the bingo card.
  4. If another player does fit the description, cross out that box with the pen.
  5. The first player to cross off five descriptions in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row should shout ‘bingo!’ and win the game.

To make the game more challenging, add these extra caveats:

  • The winner has to not only have five boxes in a row marked, but also to know the name of which guest fits the description. This caveat helps guests get to know each other more quickly.
  • Players can only use one description per guest. So if a guest has a tattoo and is also younger than 30, only one box can be ticked off for them. This caveat makes the game more difficult and last longer.

Gift Unwrapping Bridal Shower Bingo

This bridal shower bingo game uses a blank, customizable template to allow players to fill in their own boxes.

Here’s how to play gift unwrapping bridal shower bingo:

  1. Each player starts with a blank bridal shower bingo card and pen.
  2. Each player should write the gift they gave to the bride in the center box.
  3. Players should guess which gifts they think the bride has received and write them down in the bingo card’s blank boxes.
  4. As the bride unwraps the gifts, players should mark any presents that they correctly guessed.
  5. The first player to cross off five descriptions in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row should shout ‘bingo!’ and win the game.

Bride and Groom Facts Bridal Shower Bingo

This version of bridal shower bingo is played in the same way as traditional bingo. You can create a bride and groom facts bingo sheet using the customizable template before the bridal shower.

Here’s how to play ‘bride and groom facts’ bridal shower bingo.

  1. Before the bridal shower, the bride should fill in the customizable template boxes with facts about herself and the groom.
  2. Each player starts the game with a bridal shower bingo card and a pen.
  3. The nominated caller shouts out facts about the bride and groom.
  4. Players should mark any facts that appear on their bingo cards.
  5. The first player to cross off five descriptions in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row should shout ‘bingo!’ and win the game.
