It’s officially engagement season! If you are going to be a bridesmaid, there’s no time like the present to start planning an unforgettable girls’ night. We put together the top 5 bachelorette party games to get everyone in your group laughing and bonding in no time.
1) Quiz the Couple:
Before the bachelorette party, send the groom a list of questions. Ask him things like, “Where was your first date?” “What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever done in front of her?” “What article of clothing of hers do you hate?” “When did you first say you loved her?” During the bachelorette party ask the bride the same questions and see how well their answers match up.
TIP: If there’s a tech savvy bridesmaid in your group have her film the groom’s response. She can then play the video during the bachelorette party so the bride can see his reactions to all of the questions and hear a personal message from him.
2) Scavenger Hunt:
Organize a fun scavenger hunt for your bachelorette party crew around town. You can make the hunt as tame or as scandalous as you want, just keep the bride’s wishes in mind. Have guests search for anything from adult toys to cupcakes from the best bakery around.
TIP: Incorporate items representative of the bride’s relationship with her best gal pals. Maybe it’s a menu from her favorite place to have brunch with the girls or a photo from your last weekend away together.
3) Lingerie Guessing Game:
Ask each guest to bring an item of lingerie for the bride-to-be. Have the bride guess which friend brought each gift. Every time she guesses incorrectly, have her sip her drink. The bride will end up with a great selection of lingerie for the honeymoon!
TIP: Provide a suggested spending amount to guests to avoid having anyone feel awkward for spending too little or too much.
4) Ex Charades:
Spice up the traditional game of charades and have your bachelorette party guests act out funny moments from the bride’s dating history. Maybe it’s the time she tripped in front of a crush or dated a hot but stupid guy. Everyone will get a kick out of reliving her dating mistakes before meeting Mr. Right.
TIP: If the groom’s close friends or family members are in attendance, be sure to keep things appropriate. The bride likely does not want to share too many details about her exes with her future in-laws.
5) Truth or Dare:
Bring back the classic and one of the best bachelorette party games! Collect suggested truth and dare submissions from guests in advance and make cards for everyone to hand the bride throughout the bachelorette party weekend. Get creative and give the bride funny dares, or ask her sweet truths, such as, “when did you first know you wanted to marry your fiancée?” If she won’t answer or take a dare, then she has to sip her drink!
TIP: Ask a crafty bridesmaid to make the cards and decorate them with both funny and cute pictures of the couple. They will make great mementos of the weekend for the bride.
