How To Make A Bridal Jeopardy Game
If you enjoy crafts you can create a poster board for the jeopardy game. There are many beautiful examples online to emulate.
Glue envelopes to the board that holds the question and the answer. Or design one online to be compatible with cell phones. There are a lot of apps that you can download to link to your game and operate as buzzers.
There should be multiple categories to choose from, ideally 3-5. Since it is for the bridal shower they can be geared more towards the bride instead of the groom.
Fun Categories To Include:
If you have a fabulous bridal shower theme, you can play off that, or go for some of these categories:
- All About the Bride
- Love Songs
- Fun Facts
- Romantic Movies
- Wedding Traditions
- The Couple
- Love Stories
- Famous Couples
- What Did The Groom Say?
- Famous Brides
- Name That Cake
- Places They Have Been
- He Said/She Said
Typically the host of the bridal shower is also the host of the Jeopardy game as they most likely created it. You can split up duties, though, or even co-host.
How To Play Bridal Jeopardy
- Split into teams based on your group size and provide each one with a buzzer. You can determine which team goes first by drawing lots, rolling die, picking a number, etc. Someone should be assigned to keep score.
- The easiest questions will be worth the least amount of points, while difficult ones are worth more. Points usually range from 100-500 points.
- Every team will choose a category and point value for their round. Whoever buzzes in first gets to answer the question. If you get it correct then you earn those points. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins a prize.
- Double jeopardy is when the question is worth either the team’s amount of points or a total of 1000 points, whichever is more. Final jeopardy makes up the last question of the game and should be the most vague and difficult one to answer.
Bridal Jeopardy Questions
You can do it the original Jeopardy way, by reading the answer, and having guests reply with the question…or just ask the questions and the guests can give the answer.
The categories you use can be more general but the questions should be more personal. The higher the points the more difficult the question.
Here are some category and question and answer examples:
