Finish The Love Song Category
This category is great for getting everyone singing along to some classic love songs.
The best way to do this is to cue up the songs on your phone or another device so that you can play the song and then pause it when you want the team to continue the lyrics.
If you are unable to do this, you can simply write down or read out the portion of the lyrics. Below are some examples.
- “If you’re lost, you can look and you will find me…” Time After Time – Cindy Lauper

This is because it is unlikely that any team will be able to guess the actual number completely accurately.
For these questions, you will need to let multiple teams answer in order to know who is the closest.

Frequently Asked Questions
Bridal shower jeopardy is simply a version of the popular TV game show Jeopardy that was formerly hosted by Alex Trebek.
There are a series of categories that contain questions that are worth different amounts of points. There are generally three teams when playing jeopardy.
Each team should have a buzzer so that they can buzz in to answer questions.
If you don’t have buzzers you can use hotel bells, squeaky dog toys, or even cheap percussion instruments.
How Do You Play Bridal Shower Jeopardy?
Anything that makes distinctive sounds will do. You can also download buzzer apps onto phones which works well.
You should aim for there to be at least 4 – 5 categories of questions all of which relate to weddings or the couple that is getting married.
Each category should have 5 questions in it that range in difficulty. The easiest question should be worth $100, while the most difficult question should be worth $500.
Obviously, the monetary value doesn’t have to be real, but giving out funny prizes can make the game more fun.
Each team should take turns answering questions for the dollar amount from the category of their choice.
Once the chosen question has been read out, any of the other teams can buzz in to answer the question so it is important for teams to be quick if they want the points.
If the person who buzzes in gets the answer correct, they get the dollar amount on the question added to their total.
The team with the highest amount at the end of the game is the winner.
However, if the person who buzzes in gets the question incorrect, they lose the dollar amount that is on the question from their total.
At the end of the main rounds of questions, the teams can choose to wager as much as they want from their total dollar amount for the final jeopardy question.
The team with the highest total after the final jeopardy question is the winner.
With bridal jeopardy, it is unlikely that you will be giving away hundreds or even thousands of dollars as a prize.
Instead, you can have some fun wedding-themed prizes available for the team that wins at the end.
Making a full jeopardy game board and setup can be very time-consuming and difficult.
Not everyone will have the time to put this much effort into a single game for a bridal shower. Thankfully, there is a simpler way to play if you need to.
It is possible to get pre-printed game cards and ask the bridal shower guests to fill out questions and answers while the bride opens gifts or is otherwise distracted.
This is a great option if the bridal shower is being organized by one person who might be feeling overwhelmed.
In order to have a successful game of bridal jeopardy, there are a few things that you will need to have or make.
If you want a low-effort game, there are plenty of online printables that can help take away the bulk of the work.
However, if you want to make the game more personal, it is possible to make a jeopardy game board from scratch.
One of the most important things that you will need to play jeopardy is a buzzer for each team.
As we mentioned earlier, this can be a buzzer that you purchased online, it can be a phone app, or it can be a collection of funny things that make noise.
There is no right or wrong way to do this. The teams just need to be able to get the quiz master’s attention.
You will also need a bridal jeopardy game board or a pre-printed card game. It can be quite easy to make a DIY jeopardy board if you have the time.
There are some ideas for a fun board below. You should also source the jeopardy theme song for the final jeopardy round of the game.
You can find this theme song on a 10-hour loop on YouTube which should just about be long enough.
Finally, you will need to make sure that there is a prize available for the winner of the game.
Unless you or the bride are incredibly rich, you are unlikely to be handing out the monetary amount that the team wins. Instead, a simple candle or small pamper set should be enough.
DIY Jeopardy Board
There are a couple of ways you can make a fun and interactive jeopardy board that will bring the whole game to life if you have time and resources.
Digital Jeopardy Board
The easiest way to make this game work is by creating a digital jeopardy board that can be interacted with as you play along.
This is a great option if you are limited in space and a posterboard isn’t ideal. There are plenty of different tutorials available online to help you create your jeopardy board.
The best thing about this method is that you have a lot of freedom of choice about the aesthetics of your board.
You can create the board that you want without having to spend time and money on different materials.
A downside to this method is that if you are not very IT literate, you may struggle with creating a digital jeopardy board that doesn’t have any hitches on the day.
Foam Or Poster Board Jeopardy Board
If you love a bit of art and crafts and jump at the chance to go above and beyond for the bride-to-be, this is the method that you will want to go with.
It is possible to make a jeopardy board from foam boards or poster boards. There are many different options for the look of your board.
There just needs to be enough columns for the categories that you have chosen for your game.
You can print the question cards off from your computer and design them in apps such as Canva or even Paint.
With this method, you can make the entire board fit the theme of the bridal shower perfectly and even use some leftover decorations to provide the finishing touches.
If you want to keep the game a surprise for the bride-to-be, you could cover the back of the board with photographs of her and her bridal party or groom-to-be to explain the presence of the giant board.
How Many Guests Do You Need To Play Jeopardy?
There really is no limit to the number of guests that you need at the bridal shower to run a successful game of bridal jeopardy.
With that being said, you will need enough players to form at least two teams to make it interesting. Each team can be made up of as few as two players.
You will also need to remain separate from the teams as you will be playing the role of the quiz master.
What Does The Host Do?
The host is usually the person who creates the game by default. This is because they will know all of the questions and answers in the game.
If you are unsure about hosting the game by yourself and there are going to be enough guests, you can co-host with a bridesmaid or other guest to make it more fun.
During the game, your role as host will involve reading out the questions that the teams pick. You will also need to keep a tally of the dollar amount.
This can be done by keeping the questions answered correctly in piles that correspond to the correct team. You can also write it down as you go.
One of the most important things that you need to do as the host is get the atmosphere right. The guests at the bridal shower are likely going to be happy to join in.
However, the game is always more fun when there is some showmanship and some atmosphere.
This is why it can be more fun to host the game with another bridesmaid if the numbers allow it. You can also use lighting and music to help build the atmosphere.
If the venue has the facilities for lighting and music, this can be a great start.
Bridal shower jeopardy is a great game to play during the bridal shower of a friend or family member.
It can be the perfect way to break the ice among guests and celebrate all things love, weddings, and the bride-to-be.
Although it takes a little bit of time and effort to properly plan and execute, the fun and memories that can be created are completely worth it and can make the bridal shower memorable for everyone involved.
