Fun Bachelorette Party Games
You've planned the perfect getaway or night on the town, but how do you make sure everyone has fun? Party games are a great way to break the ice and engage all of the guests at a bachelorette bash!
Bachelorette parties are a little less structured than the bridal shower, but that also means they can be a tad awkward. The bride knows everyone that's invited, but she might be the only one. As the maid or matron of honor, it falls on you to plan the party, but also make sure everyone has a good time. Party games are a great way to get everyone chatting before a luncheon or break the ice before you head out for a night of partying.
Pin the kiss: Just like pinning the tail on the donkey when we were kids, this is a great way to get everyone involved in a low-threat but hilarious party game. Print out a picture of the groom or the bride's celebrity crush on a poster. Cut out lip-shaped pieces of paper and have guests write their names on a pair. The rest is just like grade school; blindfold each guest one at a time, spin them in a circle and then have them get as close as they can to the poster's lips!
Scavenger hunt: this can be as clean (or not!) as you want. Make a list for all the guests with things they have to find or do throughout the party, such as buying the bride a drink or finding a guy with the same first name as the groom. If you have everyone take pictures as evidence, you can collect them later and make a fun album as a keepsake! A great way to add a little competition is to make point categories and have each person keep track. At the end of the night, tally up the points and give the winner a small prize like a coffee gift card or a manicure kit.
Kiss the Miss: This is a quick and easy game you can do while everyone gets ready to go out. Create a cute printout with the text “Kiss the Miss Goodbye” before the party. Before you head out for your first activity, have everyone put their choice of lipstick on and kiss the printout. It's a cute way to get everyone involved and get some laughs while creating a fun keepsake for the bride to frame later.
How well do you know the bride: Come up with a list of 10-15 questions and write the bride's answers. These can be easy like her favorite color or movie, or hard ones like what was her first concert. At the party, give everyone a sheet of paper and have them write answers as you ask the questions — whoever has the highest score wins! This is another fun chance to have a small prize, or something related to whatever activities you have planned.
Toilet paper wedding dress: Give guests rolls of toilet paper, streamers, or ribbon and let them create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece! Take lots of pictures during the creation and when it's all done. This game is great for parties that have younger guests who want to join in the fun or for a gathering that includes a more modest crowd like family members or church groups.
Bachelorette photo booth: Not so much a party game, but still a great way to break the ice and have some fun. Grab some fun props at a party store or make your own and have guests take pictures before the party gets started. A fun twist: if you're heading out for a night on the town, take pictures before and after to get hilarious results! Make sure you share the album with everyone afterwards so everyone has a keepsake of the party.
These are just a few ideas that you can use, and there are lots of free templates and ideas you can find online. The most important thing to think about is the age of the guests invited and suitable activities for the group. You don't want to upset the bride's family or friends by planning games that aren't appropriate for the setting. Always talk to the bride and see what she wants and then have a ton of fun planning!
