What do you do when you’re not planning an outing for the bachelorette party and have to come up with something to entertain the masses? You play a game (or games in this place)!
There’s nothing more uncomfortable than awkward silence. That’s why it’s called awkward silence. So whatever happens, avoid that at all costs! It can ruin a party.
Now, what can you do to insure that doesn’t happen while having a bonding experience with the bride and other ladies at the same time?
You play games of course!!
Here are 5 games that are sure to heighten the fun at your bachelorette party.
1. Bachelorette Categories
What to Prep: Come up with several (5 to 10) wedding or bachelorette-related categories and write them down on separate note cards. Make them as easy or difficult as you want. Your topics could be anything from wedding dress designers to types of flowers and famous wedding movies. If you want to go more R-rated, add a few sexy categories. It can get as crazy as you want it to be!
How to Play: Everyone takes turns choosing a card and then they have 10 seconds to name an item in that category. If the player can’t think of one item for that category, they’re out and they have to drink!
2. Lingerie Guessing Game
The Gist: Everyone brings a piece of lingerie they feel describes their personality to gift to the bride, then the bride guesses who gave each present.
What to Prep: Let each guest know ahead of time to bring some form of lingerie to the party as a gift, and for the game, and hang them up while the bride is out of the room.
How to Play: Once all the items are on display, have the bride walk around surveying each piece and write down who she thinks brought it. Have her take a drink for each one she gets incorrect.
3. Never Have I Ever
This game is a classic and it’s stood the sands of time (through middle school, high school, and even college) for a very good reason. It’s FUN! It’s so much fun. You can make it as innocent or as naughty as you want and you get to learn a lot about the other players while having a blast laughing and drinking the night away.
The Gist: Each player takes a turn completing the phrase “Never have I ever…” with a true statement. The rest of the group has to take a drink if the statement isn’t true for them.
How to Play: Take turns coming up with deeds you’ve never done. With this game, the more scandalous, the better! For example, “Never have I ever had sex at the zoo!” If anyone actually has, they take a revealing drink. If only one person drinks, the rule is she has to reveal all the details.
Warning: This isn’t an opportunity to embarrass anyone. Everyone needs to go in with an open mind with no judgement and no ulterior motives. Of course, seeing as how it’s a party I’m hoping you only invite close friends so that shouldn’t be a problem.
4. Sexy Treasure Hunt
The Gist: A saucy take on the traditional scavenger hunt.
What to Prep: For this game, hide sexy items, like fuzzy handcuffs, body paint and lacy panties throughout the house, backyard or wherever you’re throwing the party.
How to Play: Divide guests into teams and give them a list of items to find. The team that finds the most items wins. Up the challenge (and fun) and gives guests clues instead of item names.
5. What’s In Your Cell Phone?
We’ve saved the most elaborate game for last folks and I’m going to go right on ahead and thank ultimatebridesmaid.com for this fun game and printable!
But remember, Don’t just pass out the sheets and let people fill in their scores. Have the host read each question aloud and then ask guests to share their answers. the sheet is so each person can keep a record, but make sure you keep everyone engaged and talking. Share the photos you have to hunt down, make them admit if they have Candy Crush and find out who scores the highest on rounds that award multiple points.
I hope these ideas will help you at your next bachelorette party! Have a great time ladies.
