8 fun Bachelorette party ideas
1. Photo scavenger hunt
You can make a photo challenge with pictures based on the challenges given and it's mostly an outdoor game. For example, it could be taking a picture by picking someone of the opposite sex, or someone hugging a total stranger. Whatever that is, it has to be customized especially for the bachelorette party. This game will not only give you something fun to do, but it’s also a way of making memories.
Above link is a printable that you can use straight away if you don't have time to customize one!
2. DIY pin the kiss on a hot actor
You can find out the bride-to-be’s favorite movie star (Male). Get a big picture of him then get some smooch stickers and start spinning him with the ladies. Woohoo!
3. The groom quiz
With this game, the girls get to test the bride-to-be’s knowledge of her groom-to-be. Before the party, you have to send a few questions about the groom so that he can answer and send it back then you can properly confirm her knowledge. Super fun and may be useful for the wedding night or even after marriage!
4. DIY Bachelorette ring toss
This game is so perfect for the beach or the backyard or even the bachelorette pad. Whoever successfully rings a bottle, they are the winner! Get some prizes for each winner or you can accumulate points and announce the winner (with a prize or a reward) after all the rings are thrown.
5. Most likely to..
Everyone in the bridal party gets a set of index cards and if there are 10 people in the party then every girl needs 10 index cards, one for each person. Each player writes down something they think the other person is likely to do. For example, a guest can say who is most likely to get married next, or most likely to marry an athlete. The list of most likely events is endless.
6. Take a bow
Buy colorful ribbons and tie around each guest's hand and the bachelorette will untie the hands of anyone she wants to buy her a drink and they’ll have a drink together.
7. He says she says
The party guests can create a quiz and each guest gets to decide whether the bride or the groom said a particular thing. They’ll each take turns and if they get it wrong, they’ll have to take a drink.
8. Wishes for the couple
Each of the bachelorette party guests will write their wishes down during those quiet moments. The guests can write what their wishes are for the bride-to-be and her husband which will be stored in cute containers for the couple. The bride will love to read it after the party is over.
Active and physical games
Instead of getting drunk with a bunch of strangers, why not do something physical and really interesting.
There are tons of bachelorette active games that you can indulge in, I will list them down below.
9. Hike and picnic
Hiking is a real stress relief especially if the bride has been feeling overwhelmed by the wedding preparations, you can pick a picnic destination then choose an easier route to that place you want to go and don’t forget to take cheese, croissants, turkey, champagne, everything. The ball is in your court whatever you do, have fun!
Having yoga retreats is a great way to spend your spend time with your friends as a bride-to-be you can have massages, whirlpool or meditation classes to help you feel relaxed in anticipation for your wedding.
11. Organize studio sessions
You can organize a workout and wine session for you and your girls to build your strength or sculpting, have snacks afterward and visit a saloon so the girls can have their hair down while toasting to the bride.
12. Fly High
You can take a plunge on a trampoline, a zip line and even do basic trapeze to learn how to switch bars and get caught by an instructor on another bar, it’s quite intense but it’s fun and a great way of creating memories.
13. AIR Aerial fitness
The bride-to-be and her friends get to swing in the air for about an hour in a private arrangement just for the girls. It’s a really fun way to spend time with the girls before walking down the aisle.
14. DIY bachelorette party drink spinner
This game can be played by the bride and her bridesmaid or approximately 5 people. It would take 30 mins to play the game. To play this game you need a spinner and different alcoholic beverages. You can get water, wine, bloody Mary, tequila or vodka. The player spins the wheel to see if she gets to drink water, wine or whatever the wheel points at. You can also add truth or dare to the game and also prepare some questions you want them to answer, if they don’t want to answer then they get a drink.
15. Name that drink game
Well, you’re going to have to prepare for this, get some drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. All the players get to sit around the table and the host passes the drinks around, the player is given 30secs to guess the right drink and she scores a point. The lady with the most point wins the game. It’s a lot trickier with cocktails as there are harder to guess and remember ladies when you start to get dizzy from the alcohol you know you need to stop. It’s always better to know your limits.
16. Bottoms up
This game helps you get to know each other better BUT make sure the bride is comfortable with what you have on your list. So you can get different types of alcohol and pass around enough for everyone while the maid of honor asks questions and the player will drink if they have had a certain experience for example “bottoms up if you’ve ever dated a younger man” this game can be made to be totally innocent or totally dirty. So it’s always a better idea to know how comfortable your guests are before going on with this game.

17. Dress up the bride
This game has to do with dressing up the bride for her wedding day only you are going to be extra about it. This is a classier alternative to dressing the bride up in lingerie. The bride has to be blindfolded and could be feather-themed dress up or bohemian themed but whatever you choose make sure it’s not expensive and the girls have shared costs within themselves. Don’t forget to take pictures girls!
18. How well do you know the bride-to-be?
To play this game you have to compose a list of questions and everyone will have to guess the answers and the person with the most amount of right answers wins.
