You may have chosen the perfect venues to host an amazing event for your bestie, but it still takes a little something extra to get everyone in the “bachelorette party mood.” Here are a few of our favorite games to get your group laughing and bonding in no time.
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.
Truth or Dare:
Bring back this classic game! 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.
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.
