A Classic Hen Party Game
One of the best ways to kick off a hen party is with some classic hen party games. These games are easy to set up and can be a lot of fun.
A great game - True or False
A bit like would I lie to you - everyone writes down a story about the bride some are true some are a lie. Everyone puts their stories into a pot and the bride pulls a story out one at a time and must try to convince all the guests that the story was true.
Pin the Kiss on the Groom
One classic game is “Pin the Kiss on the Groom”. For this game, you’ll need a poster of the groom, some lipstick and some blindfolds. The aim of the game is for each player to pin a kiss on the groom’s face. The player who comes closest to the groom’s lips wins.
Pass the bouquet
Another classic hen party game is “Pass the Bouquet”. For this game, you’ll need a bouquet of flowers. Each player will have to pass the bouquet around the circle without using their hands. The last person to hold the bouquet at the end of the game is the winner.
Hen Party Present Game
The Hen Party Present Game is easy to set up and can be tailored to fit any budget. Each guest will bring a present, usually something funny or embarrassing, that they have either bought or made. The bride-to-be will go around the room and open each present in turn, and the guests will have to guess what the present is and who it is from. This can get very competitive and is sure to bring a few laughs! The Hen Party Present Game is a great way to make the hen party a bit more special and to give the bride-to-be some unique and funny gifts that she can keep to remember the day. It adds an extra element of fun and excitement to the hen party, and it will surely get everyone laughing and having a great time.
Pin the Tail on the Male (and others!)
A 'Pin The Tail On The Male' game is a humorous take on the classic 'Pin The Tail On The Donkey'. To do this, you will need a bit of preparation in the form of a cardboard cutout of the groom, or a large picture of them (we'll leave you to decide on the pose!), some Blu-Tack, a paper image of a tail (or something similar - again you can use your imagination) and a blindfold.
To play, attach the large picture of the groom to the wall and provide a blindfolded guest with the tail. The goal is for them to stick the tail in the correct spot on the groom's image!
Bride to Be Games
A great way to add some fun to your hen party is to plan some games especially for the bride-to-be.
Groom Memory Game
One game that the bride-to-be will love is the “Groom Memory Game”. For this game, each player must write down their favourite or funniest memory about the groom. At the end of the game, the bride-to-be will have to pick her favourite memory.
Another game that the bride-to-be will enjoy is the “Bride Quiz”. This is a great ice breaker game and it’s a great way to get everyone talking. Each player will have to answer a series of questions about the bride-to-be. The player with the most correct answers wins.
