How do I find chords for a bridge?

I always struggle finding a bridge for my songs. Is there any theory that can help me to know which chords sound good to use?

Without knowing what 'Genre' your preferred music style is, it is difficult to make decisions for you. Assuming you have picked a Major Scale, the 6th 'Relative Minor' is a good place to start. Also, if you have 'functioning Dominant 7th, finding the "5 of 5" adds a new flavor ( ie. G7- to A, B, C, -D7- fits ). Or, lowing the 7th a whole tone, gives you a Major 6. The best advice I have is... experiment, if it sounds good / use it. If it doesn't sound good / Don't use it.
