Chick Flick Charades

Materials Needed

  • a list of 25 chick flicks
  • A stopwatch
  • A bowl
  • Be sure to help your guests brush up on the hand gestures uses in charades before the game. Most people are familiar with the rules but might need a quick refresher.


    Charades has long been a popular party game that not only includes movies, but also books, plays, and songs. For your bridal shower, forget all of that other stuff and focus on what really appeals to your guests; chick flicks!

    The Setup: Make a list of around 25 popular movies about weddings or romance. Write each film on a slip of paper, fold it and put it in a bowl. Break your party guest up into two teams.

    The Rules: Play charades! The teams take turns having one member draw a film from the bowl and give clues to the title of the movie without talking. That team has 90 second to correctly guess the movie, if they get it right they are awarded one point. If they do not guess the film in 90 seconds the other team gets one guess, if they are correct they get one point. Alternate turns between the teams until one team wins by reaching ten points.
