Our Games, Activities & Features

Scavenger Hunts


Our first custom-created game for Bridal Shows was our Bridal Party Scavenger Hunt. Brides-to-be along with their Bridal Party will look for a list of items provided on an entry form. Once all have been found, the entry form is entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize for the big wedding day! 

A Mom-to- Be Scavenger Hunt was also custom-created for the Baby Bonanza event with the same design but presented a baby theme. 

Daisy Dollars / Q-Cash


A second game we custom-created is our Daisy Dollars Game for Bridal Shows. Brides are provided a starting amount of Daisy Dollars at the start of the show, the only way they can earn more dollars is by visiting the vendors. At the end of the Bridal Show, Brides will use the Daisy Dollars collected to bid on prizes by live auction. 

 Q-Cash is the exact same game as Daisy Dollars but was custom-created for ABQ Bride Magazine's brand. Daisy Dollars was originally created for New Mexico Event & Wedding Planner Magazine's brand.  

Love Quotes Game


Another game we custom-created for Bridal Shows is the Love Quotes Game. Brides-to-be will match a movie quote about love with a list of movies provided on an entry form. Brides with correct answers will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize for the big day!
