Answered by Douglas Hiatt

Making a bridal Jeopardy board is a fun and creative way to add some excitement to a bridal shower. It’s a simple DIY project that requires just a few materials and some creativity. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make a bridal Jeopardy board:

1. Materials needed:
– A piece of cardboard or poster board
– Envelopes (one for each category)
– Glue or double-sided tape
– Markers or colored pens
– Decorations (such as ribbons, glitter, or stickers)

2. Prepare the cardboard:
– Start by cutting the cardboard into a size that suits your preference. It should be large enough to fit all the categories and questions.
– Use markers or colored pens to label the board with the title “Bridal Jeopardy” or any other creative name you come up with.
– Decorate the board with the chosen decorations to make it visually appealing and match the bridal shower theme.

3. Create the categories:
– Decide on the categories for your Jeopardy board. Some common bridal shower categories could include “Wedding Traditions,” “Famous Couples,” “Bridal Movies,” “Wedding Trivia,” or “Bride and Groom Facts.”
– Write each category name in a different color or use different fonts to make them stand out.

4. Attach the envelopes:
– Glue or use double-sided tape to attach the envelopes to the board below each category.
– Label each envelope with the corresponding category name.

5. Prepare the question cards:
– Write the questions and answers on separate cards or pieces of paper.
– For each question, assign a point value based on its difficulty level (e.g., 100 points for easy questions, 200 points for medium, and 300 points for hard).
– Place the question cards inside the envelopes, making sure to keep them organized by point value.

6. Gameplay:
– Divide the participants into teams or play individually.
– Each team or player takes turns choosing a category and point value.
– The host reads out the corresponding question, and the team or player must provide the correct answer.
– If they answer correctly, they earn the designated points. If they answer incorrectly, they lose the points, and the opportunity goes to the next team or player.
– Keep track of the points on a separate scoreboard or using a pen and paper.

7. Enjoy the game:
– Encourage friendly competition and provide small prizes for the winning team or player(s).
– Have fun and enjoy the bridal shower celebration!
