There’s only one prerequisite for a bachelorette party – it should be fun! When you’re choosing games to play, try going for the ones you think the bride will like best. After all, you’re there to celebrate your friendship with her in her final days as a single woman. We’ve put together a real mix of games here for those who like to walk on the wild side – and those who prefer not to!
Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt should be full of challenges to keep your girls having fun and the bride feeling special. Of course, you could design your own if you have a few inside jokes to include, but if you’re short on time then you can’t go past this free digital download from Stag and Hen. Don’t forget to snap selfies for proof! Here are a few ideas ranging from clean to naughty if you want to DIY:
- Find another bride-to-be
- Make a veil out of toilet paper for the bride/bridesmaids to wear
- Get a guy’s phone number
- Kiss a bartender
Pin the Kiss on the Crush
Have you heard of pin the tail on the donkey? Well, this is a little like that only you get to pin a kiss on a hottie (or a photo of one that is!) Simply choose the bride’s biggest celeb crush and print out a large picture of them (think poster-size). Find some smooch-shaped stickers, and you’re all set. Or, if you prefer to get up close and personal, just apply lipstick rather than using stickers!
Bachelorette Ring Hunt
Buy some novelty rings (40 is a good number) and hide them around the hotel suite or house you are staying in. Whoever collects the most rings by the end of the bachelorette party wins a prize!
This one takes a little more preparation, but trust us, it’ll prove to be quite the hit! In this game, you’ll get to see just how well the bride knows her groom.
Before the bachelorette party, prepare a questionnaire about the bride and groom, and their relationship. Ask the groom to fill it out (honestly!). At the bachelorette party, ask the bride to fill out the same questionnaire. When she’s done, have her read out her answers.
Take things up a notch and arrange a Skype call with the groom so that when the bride reads out her answers, you all get to see his reactions too!
- The most embarrassing thing that ever happened to him
- Her most annoying habit (according to him)
- His favourite sexual position
- His favourite body part (of his fiancé)
- One thing he wears that she hates
You could also find some tasks for the bride to do if she gets any of the answers wrong, like answering an embarrassing question or taking a sip of her drink.
Come up with a list of words or phrases that guests will attempt to draw and place them in a bowl. Split the guests into two teams and let them take turns drawing one of the phrases as their team members try to guess what it is. Some suggestions include:
- Booty call
- Beer goggles
- Sex on the beach
The more risqué among you will appreciate this one! But, the good thing is it doesn’t require any of the guests to do anything embarrassing, all they need to do is draw. If you’d prefer not to come up with the suggestions yourself, it’s easy to find a printable online to use as a guide.
Toilet paper wedding dress
Split into teams and choose one person in each team to be the ‘bride’. Hand out toilet paper to each team and give them ten minutes to create the best wedding dress they can out of it.
When the time is up, ask each ‘bride’ to parade up the runway (or aisle) while one lady from each team describes the dress and their inspiration for it. The real bride can choose her favourite, and that is the winning team!
This isn’t a very environmentally-friendly idea though, so try and buy recycled toilet paper.
Never Have I Ever
This classic drinking game is the perfect way to get the champagne flowing and help the guests get to know each other even better.
Moving in a clockwise direction, each lady says “Never, have I ever” and then completes the sentence with something they have never done. Any of the guests who HAVE done that will need to take a sip of their drink. Someone is sure to surprise you!
The Panty Game
Ask each guest to purchase a pair of panties for the bride as a gift. When they arrive, all the panties are to be thrown together into a bowl or box. The bride must remove each one and try to decide who gave it to her, based on the style.
Who am I?
Ask each guest to write down one of their favourite memories they shared with the bride. Hand them to the bride and ask her to read them out one by one, and guess who wrote it. If she can’t guess which guest wrote it, that guest wins a prize!
For a funnier version of this game, you could ask each guest to write down a piece of relationship advice and then ask the bride to guess who wrote it. You’ll find some of the advice sincere, but it could easily border on the ridiculous too!
Be sure to take some before and after shots or even some short videos of the bride, so she has some keepsakes of her fabulous Bachelorette party!
