Real talk for a minute… ever been to a bachelorette party where you didn’t know anyone other than the bride? While bachelorette weekends always end up being a blast, they can sometimes be a liitttlleee awkward at first as the bride-to-be’s friends, both old and new, get to know each other. So how do you break the ice? Ding, ding, ding – with bachelorette party games!
Fun guessing games, scavenger hunts and photo booths all make for great party activities that can actually be lot of fun when they aren’t totally cheesy – or totally trashy. So, to help ya out, we’ve rounded up fifteen of our favorite bachelorette party games that the the bachelorette and I Do Crew will love.
The Newlywed Game
It’s a game we all love to watch total strangers play, and it’s even more fun when you know the couple involved. Have the bachelorette party host email the bride’s spouse-to-be a list of questions beforehand (even better, get their responses on video to play for the group later). Then have the bride guess what their partner answered for each one. If the answer is right, everyone but the bride takes a sip of their drinks. If the answer is wrong, just the bride does.
A Scavenger Hunt
This is the perfect game for a night on the town. The good news is there are tons of sites where you can instantly download pre-made bachelorette party scavenger hunt lists full of fun “dares” to be captured on camera throughout the evening. Etsy is our go-to for loads of options like this one (some quite crazy and others tamer, depending on the vibe you’re going for).
A Panty Party
If the panties fit, right? For this game, each guest should bring a pair of unwrapped panties that is reflective of their own personality. All the panties get hung on a clothesline type thing (or however you can manage it) and the bride has to guess which guest gave them which pair of panties. Like always, you can choose to turn this into a drinking game if you like—it’s a fun way to shower the bride and get some good laughs at the same time.
If you’re looking for something a bit more laid back than the scavenger hunt, we’ve got just the thing. Hide a bunch of plastic rings around your home base for the weekend and have guests try to find them. Up the ante by writing a little note with each one that includes an action the sleuth must take upon finding it, like a mini-dare.
The bachelorette night needs some careful planning for all the best bachelorette party game ideas. Don’t forget to ask the bride what kind of games she wants. It would be a pity to include bachelorette party ideas bride hates.
Planning a great bachelorette party means picking the right bachelorette party games and other activities that will make the night exciting, fun, and memorable. The key is to choose activities that will bring people together, and not make anyone overly uncomfortable. Make sure that you consult the bride on the games and activities that you are interested in doing. You don’t have to spoil the surprise by letting her in on all the details, but just give her a chance to throw in some feedback on some of your potential ideas in case there is something that she does not like at all. It is her night after all. Let’s also look at a few common questions regarding bachelorette parties.
