The best games for your hen party or bridal shower

The best games for your hen party or bridal shower


Written by Katie Byrne


Break the ice between your bridesmaids with these fun ideas for your hen do!

 

#1 Pin the moustache on your groom. (Or, ya know, Ryan Gosling. Unless of course, Ryan Gosling is your groom.)

#2 Challenge the bridal party to not say certain words throughout the party. The woman with the most rings at the end wins an awesome* prize.

*Knowledge of her victory should be prize enough, unless, of course, you want to arrange a specific gift.

This is also a fun way to do it - perhaps also penalise anyone who hisses the words 'my precious' more than once, as well.

Just make sure the rules are as clear as possible...

#3 Set up an engagement ring hunt with an assortment of colourful cocktail rings.

#4 Okay - this one is a bit silly but definitely makes a fun ice-breaker, especially if the bride loves painting her nails. 

Plus, once the game is over you can totally do manicures on each other. Hello, pretty nails!

#5 Who doesn't love a game of ring-toss? Allocate a number of points to each bottle - coated in glitter, obvs - and award the woman with the most points at the end of the game with her very own glitter-coated bottle of wine or chamapgne.

Or - if you've blown all your budget on glitter - Lambrini. #budgetsavvy

#6 This gift-bingo game is perfect for a classic bridal shower.

#7 Bra pong. Like beer pong, but with an entirely different kind of cup.

Yeah, we went there.

#8 This is a sweet game of luck - hand each guest an envelope, and the one who opens their's to find a photo of the bride's groom inside wins.

#9 Don't forget a round or two of the original game we all love to hate: Truth or Dare.

#10 This game has potential to either be hilarious or cringe-inducing - and ideally, a mix of the two.

Ask guests to bring along a pair of their underwear, and the blushing bride has to guess which garments belong to who.

#11 Challenge guests to construct their very own wedding dresses - made solely out of toilet paper (and determination).
