Great At Home Bachelorette Party Games
You have a guest list. You bough party favors and snack food. You brought a great present. But will the bachelorette party you planned for your best friend or sister be a success? It will if you have a ready supply of fun and slightly naughty bachelorette party games!
How do you start your party off right? One great idea to help break the ice at a bachelorette party is to create a group story. Have all the girls at the party sit in a circle, each taking a turn to say a sentence that makes up a funny story about the bachelorette. A girl can start with “Once upon a time, there was a bride-to-be and . . .” If a girl can’t think of anything to add to the story, she moves out of the circle, and the last one left gets a prize for her creative talent!
Another good bachelorette party game is to gather an advice bouquet for the bride. Make construction paper flowers with pipe cleaner stems attached. Have each party guest write advice for the bride on the flower, and collect and present the bride-to-be with her bachelorette party advice bouquet. The warm wishes and good tips will be a welcome gift. This idea also works well at a bridal shower or engagement party.
Another low key bachelorette party game is a game to determine how well each guest knows the bride. Before the party, ask the bride-to-be a series of questions, you can ask her fiance the same questions as well. Then, ask the questions to the party guests, and see who can get the highest number correct. Questions can be simple, like “what is the bride’s favorite color,” can relate to the couple’s relationship, “where did the bride and groom go on their first date,” or can be a bit bawdier. The game can be completely tailored to suit your party, with simpler questions if the group knows the bride from different areas of her life, to more intense or naughty questions if the party guests are all very close friends. If you are looking for commercially packaged bachelorette party games, the internet has a plethora of choices. Some of the best ideas include things like bachelorette party Madlibs, which takes the classic Madlibs concept and incorporates bachelorette party specific stories. Your guests plug requested word types into the story, and then you read the hilarious results, just like how we all played the game as kids.
Also, when guests arrive you can give them a set of rules not to violate for the night, like cussing, saying the fiance’s name, or their own boyfriend or husband’s name, using words like wedding, bride, or bachelorette, or drinking before the bachelorette drinks a sip from her glass. When a guest violates any of the rules, she has to give a quarter to the “wedding fund” and the bride gets to keep all the money collected at the end of the night.
This quarter-back game of tolls can be fun at both an at home party, or if you and the girls are out on the town.
