This is bridal shower Jeopardy! Well, I’m no Alex Trebek, but I have some tips and tricks for a fabulous jeopardy game that could be played during your bridal shower.
In this article, we will explore how Bridal Jeopardy works. We will go over different game styles with categories and questions. You will also receive a free downloadable and editable Bridal Jeopardy Game.
What is Bridal Jeopardy?
Bridal shower Jeopardy is just like the television game show. Players will answer a series of questions worth money (in our case, points or prizes). The person who has the most money at the end of the game wins.
How to play Bridal Jeopardy?
Questions are divided into categories. The easiest question will start at 100 points ranging up to 500 points. Teams answer the questions. Questions will be about the engaged couple. At a bridal shower, more questions are about the bride.
- Break up the room into three teams.
- Provide each team a buzzer, you could use an app. I like Trivia Bowl Buzzer.
- Present the Jeopardy game
- Figure out which team goes first by a coin toss or pick a number.
- Assign someone to keep score.
- The team with the most points wins.
Bridal Jeopardy Format
There are different ways to play bridal Jeopardy. It could be played on a physical board or there could be an electronic Jeopardy board. This article will give examples of both. You will be able to download a free bridal Jeopardy game from Bridal shower 101.
Bridal Jeopardy Board Examples
The board format is easy for crafty ladies. All you will need is a piece of cardboard and some decorations. Glue envelopes to the board. You could put the question and answer cards in the envelope. Label categories and each envelope, the points that the questions are worth and then you are done!
Digital Bridal Jeopardy
Bridal Jeopardy could be made in several ways. The easiest way is to use Microsoft Powerpoint. You could make a chart and label them with the categories and the points. Have each point block link to the appropriate question slide. On the bottom of the question slide, have a link to the answer slide. On the answer slide, have a link that brings you back to the slide with the game board.
The Host for Bridal Jeopardy
The host of the bridal shower is usually the host of the game. One of the bridesmaids could co-host eh game. It is important that someone has all other questions and answer on hand.
Categories and Questions
Categories could be vague but questions could get personal and specific. Be sure as the points increase, the question difficulty increases as well.
Questions are decided from the couple and facts about them. There could also be entertainment questions on popular culture. There are soma great question ideas from the He Said, She Said blog post.
- How old is the bride?
- What is The Bride’s Favorite Color?
- How many children does the bride want?
- When is the bride’s birthday?
- What is the wedding date?
- What is the wedding theme?
- How many bridesmaids are in the bridal party?
- Where is the honeymoon?
- What the name of this song….
- Finish this lyric ….
- Who sings the song….
- Where did the couple meet?
- Who takes longer to get ready?
- Where was the proposal?
- Where was their first date?
In Bridal Jeopardy, Double Jeopardy Questions is either the team’s total points or 1000 points, whichever is greater.
The last question of the game. This should be the most difficult question of the game. Here are some examples…
- What is the official/unofficial wedding colors?
- Name the person that is marrying the couple?
- What is the wedding hashtag?
