So you have the honour (and very daunting task!) of arranging a hen party or bridal shower? You want to ensure the bride to be has the best farewell to single life you can possibly have? But also ensuring the experience is enjoyable for a bunch of ladies you might not know that well?
Well you've come to the right place! We've come up with a guide for the top hen party games which will give you some ideas and leave you feeling prepared for the celebration. All games are designed to require minimal preparation, and to be fun and tasteful...read on and enjoy!
#1 - A walk down memory lane...
This is a personalised game and serves as the perfect icebreaker for a hen party group who don’t necessary know each other that well.
How it works
1. Before the hen party, ask all the guests to think of a memory or when they first met the bride and write it on a piece of paper.
2. At the hen party, put all the memories into a hat and get the bride to pull them out one by one.
3. She will read the memory out and guess which of her friends it is.
This also lets the other girls know how the other guests first met the bride to be. Even some who are friends with the other guests might be surprised. Let the guests know to be as funny, sentimental or embarrassing as they like!
#2 - Banned Word Game
This is really fun game which is easy to continue throughout the night and when moving through different venues.
Pick a few words that people are not allowed say for a period of time i.e. the grooms name, ‘wedding’, ‘party’, ‘myself’ etc. Don’t pick more than four words. Then if anyone says those words, they have to do a forfeit which is decided by the hen planner or the group before they start the game.
You could also play this by giving everyone a peg, ring or bracelet. When someone catches them saying a banned word, they have to give their item to that person. The person with the most pegs, rings or bracelets at the end of the game wins.
#3 - How well do you know your Mr Quiz
This is an absolute Hen's party classic. Put the bride on the spot and test how well she knows her future husband!
Before the hen party, ask the groom 10 to 20 questions about him, the bride and their relationship. At the party, ask the bride to be the same questions. Have some sort of forfeit for the questions she gets wrong.
Where did you go for your first date?
What is your new partner most scared of?
What colour is your partners toothbrush?
What is your partner’s favorite film?
#4 - Naughty Moulding
All you need for this game is play-doh. You can let the girls play individually or put everyone into teams. Give everyone some play-doh and ask them to mould various body parts. How risque is up to you! You can make it as competitive as you like and get votes for the best shapes and forfeits for the losing team.
#5 - Ladies Charades
This is a classic game and a good fall back for any party in need of a boost.
The hen party spin on it is picking girlie charades themes – chick flicks and hot celebrities etc should be on the list . You can also add some more fun by adding people in her life from the groom, to her mother, inlaws, to ex-boyfriends to herself.
Another option is changing the original charades format and getting the girls to work in pairs and to act out famous scenes from different chick flicks. Think the jumping routine in Dirty Dancing and the top of the world from Titanic. Be inspired by Legally Blonde, The Notebook, Clueless, How to lose a guy in 10 days, Mean Girls, Crazy Stupid Love, When Harry Met Sally, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Sleepless in Seattle, Pretty Woman, Bridesmaids and whatever girlie cheese you can think of!
