Guess Who Has It (Clean Fun/Naughty)
You need to choose an object related to getting married for this particular game. You can either use a bouquet or a handcuff, depending on whether you want this game to be squeaky clean or a wee bit naughty.
The idea here is to pass around your chosen bridal object, and leave the IT guessing who has the said thing. Since this is an Around The Clock shower, players should be in a circle, with the IT in the middle. You can play some music while the "passing around" happens, and when the clocks strikes, IT needs to guess who has your chosen object.
Give each player three times (or less, depending on your preferred game length) to play as IT. Player who made the most number of correct guesses, wins the game. No winner? No worries, since we're pretty sure your guests had a lot of fun in the process!
Hunt Around The Room (Clean Fun/Naughty)
This is another treasure hunt game customized for an Around The Clock shower.
You need to have items related to getting married or the bride-to-be. They need to be scattered and hidden around the room/house.
Now for the clues. Depending on how challenging you want this game, you can give a clue regarding both the location and the object. Since this is an Around The Clock shower, clues should be time-based. Location clues could be "This place is usually occupied around 7 AM - 10 AM, while "This item needs to be applied after breakfast and lunch time" can be a clue if your chosen item is a lipstick.
The group who was able to find the most items wins the game.
Memory Game (Clean Fun/Naughty)
It's time to test your guests' memory and their attention to detail.
List down items that are related to getting married or the bride-to-be. Pick items that can be tied up to the time of the day when said item is usually used. This can be 8:00 AM - hair dryer, 4:00 PM - wedding bouquet (if this is the expected time the bride will throw the bouquet), and so on. Write each item and corresponding time down in a piece of paper.
The host needs to draw lots and read out the item and its corresponding time. Afterwards, give each guest a pen and paper so they can write down all the items under 8:00 AM, 4:00 PM and so on. To make this extra-challenging, you can even require them to write the items according to the order they were read out.
The person who had the most correct answers wins the game.
Spin The Cucumber (Naughty)
Everybody must be seated in a circle, and when the cucumber's head points to a particular person, that person must either tell something sexy about herself or give advice to the bride-to-be about getting married and the honeymoon.
No winner, but definitely a nice getting to know each other game and will give some free and great advice to the bride-to-be.
