We know what you’re thinking.. what is this?
We created The Coolest Bridal Competition Ever! Bridal Wars is a team competition, your bride squad vs their bride squad! One bride to be and a group of her friends make up a team – your team can be as small as two and as large as you want! Bridesmaids, family, friends.. Mom’s and your future MIL are all welcome to be on your team! Every person registers individually on our website. Teams compete against each other in our custom bridal wars challenges! It’s the best time you’ll have with your friends… we promise!
How does it work?
Our event is set up like a bachelorette party festival, with local vendors, a food and drink area, a DJ & more! We use both indoor and outdoor spaces for our event. We start the event with a welcome announcement at 1:00 and then the fun begins! Teams will move around the event participating in fun challenges- from a lip sync battle, to DIY wedding night lingerie, photo stations, bouquet toss, balloon pop and relay races and more! Check in opens at 12:30, the event starts at 1:00 and ends at 4:00. Our event ends with a Ugly Dress Fashion Show (bring that ugly dress in your closet) and a winners ceremony where we announce the winning team for each challenge.
Prize bags are given out to the winning teams for each challenge.
who can compete?
Anyone can be on your team, but they need to be over the age of 18. Teams typically have bridesmaids, friends or family members! Guys are welcome to be on your team, however, we do ask that they sit out of any physical challenges. Teams can be any size you’d like- we do suggest a minimum of 3 people.
We created our event to be fun, however, if you see something you don’t want to do, you can skip it! All challenges are optional.
