Best (tame) bachelorette party games or ideas to make it fun?

Asked by emilyrose (2255 points ) February 26th, 2009

I’m planning my best friend’s bachelorette party and want some good tips about how to make it really fun. She won’t do anything embarassing or crazy, but I’d love some advice about cute things we can do. I know lots of people do t-shirts, buttons, etc. Any good ideas?

Do you mean at home or out bar hopping?
If it’s an at home party, you can play the tp game. Divide into 2 person teams, one model and one designer. You get 3 minutes to make a wedding dress on your model using only toilet paper. Best dress wins.
If your out at bars, you can do the typical veil and bride sash.

Before my friend’s wedding was called off, our bachelorette plans were thus: go out for awesome sushi and drinks, come home and possibly watch Disney movies, possibly drink, and definitely gossip. But the chatting had a lot to do with it would have been the first time we’d seen each other in a year.

Stripper jousting?

You can do a slightly dirty (or not) pictionary game. make your own clues and buy a big sketch pad.

You should have all the girls go out in old bridesmaid dresses from past weddings they have been in. It gives them another place to wear it and everyone can compare dresses.

For my bachelorette party, my sister put together a real old-school slumber party, which was fabulous. We watched movies, gossiped, prank-called the boys, and slept in sleeping bags sprawled all over the furniture and floors. Only difference was, we were drinking watermelon margaritas – never had those when we were 12… ;)

glue life savors to the shirt of the bride and have random guys you find to eat them off

( i never did this but i know people that did and they have some funny stories )

We had a party for a not very wild bride. One thing that we did was make a poster with one of her favorite actors on it—Colin Firth, in this case. We found a PG (but sexy) pic. We played “Pin the Bowtie” on him. It is like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but with bowties and bride’s favorite actor/singer/whoever.

I created a great Scattergories game for bachelorette parties and have used it several times. The questions are PG rated, but some of the answers can get out of hand (at one party, the MOB answered “knockwurst” for “Phallic things”, and you can imagine the possibilities when the question is “Unusual places to make whoopee” and the letter is B). I have tried to figure out a way to market my invention, but hit a roadblock trying to find a 24-sided die with letters on it. If you have the Scattergories game, though, I’d be glad to share my categories with you.

Another good one is a version of the Newlywed Game: ask the groom ahead of time questions like what instrument he played in high school, the name of his cousin that is closest to him in age, who is #1 on his “list”, etc., and then have the women at the party (1) guess how many the bride will get right and (2) read the questions to her. The person who guesses closest to the number she’ll get right gets a prize, and having everyone read the questions gets all involved. I’ve also seen this done with a video interview of the groom, but that takes a little more work.
