A Guide to the Perfect Hen & Bridal Shower Games
If you’re planning a hen party or bridal shower then you’ll know that there’s a lot of responsibility to make sure that everyone, especially the bride-to-be, has an unforgettable experience. Aside from booking a venue, decorations and plenty of fizz you’re going to need to make sure that there are some fun activities to keep everyone in the party mood.
It’s never the best idea to plan the event in too much detail or you’re likely to kill the mood with a ‘forced fun’ atmosphere, however, when you’re bringing a large group together some organisation is essential. This means pencilling in some icebreakers and games to keep everyone engaged and revved up for a great time.
Struggling to come up with a selection of games that everyone can enjoy? Why not try one of the following examples which all allow for a stamp of individuality, catered to the people attending and the bride-to-be herself:
A classic party game that’s perfectly suited to a hen party or bridal shower. You can go the traditional route of films, book and music or add your own spin on it to incorporate some more personal examples featuring the lucky lady and her future hubby.
Showcase your artistic talent (or lack thereof!) with a few rounds of Pictionary, a game guaranteed to bring out everyone’s competitive side. The subject matter will be unique to the group playing it meaning you can make it as raunchy or tame as you feel is appropriate.
There’s a huge variety of ways you can spin the humble quiz, a focus on rom-coms and sappy songs can be a winner or you could dive into the he said / she said route matching the most embarrassing social media comments to attendees which is guaranteed to be both hilarious and just the right level of cringeworthy.
- Bridal Bingo
This most commonly relates to the presents for the bride-to-be either specifically or in the way that she will describe them when they’re opened. It’s a simple activity that adds a great level of involvement to the gift opening process meaning that people aren’t sat passively and can enjoy it just as much as the lady of the hour.
- Photo Booth
Who doesn’t love the opportunity to dress up and have a laugh in front of a camera? Hired photo booths come fully stocked with a great range of accessories and provide an unbeatable way of capturing the night as it progresses – leaving everyone with some hilarious mementos.
This selection should provide you with a strong head start in planning the perfect hen party or bridal shower – as for your creative input – the sky’s the limit!
