8 Party Game Ideas for a Memorable Hens Night
The hens night is the one event you have been waiting for.
This is a celebration for the bride before she gets officially married. Make room for some great games to keep the party fun and entertaining. Whether you are the maid of honour or one of the bridesmaid, you will want to plan a memorable hens night for the bride.
From innocent to downright hilarious, there are plenty of games to suit your party style. Here are eight party games for a memorable hens night.
- The Newlyweds Game
This game is fun to play and easy to set up.
The idea is to find out just how well the bride knows her husband to be. Before the hens night, ask the groom a number of questions. The bride then has to answer the same questions correctly. But for each one she gets wrong, she has to take a shot or perform a dare.
Here are some questions to ask:
- How did you two meet?
- What is his favourite movie?
- How would you describe him in one word?
- What is his favourite thing about the bride?
- How would he prefer to spend a Sunday?
- Who are all his closest friends?
- What is his favourite meal?
These questions are a great start but feel free to make your own. Play this game over cocktails or spread the questions out throughout the night. For an added bonus, record the answers from the groom for proof.
- Post-it Note Game
This is a game the bride will absolutely love and bring up sweet memories.
All you need is a pack of Post-it note (or slips of paper) and a pen. Each guest then writes a short sentence of a memory they have of the bride. Once finished, the bride reads each slip aloud and has to guess who wrote the note.
Hilarious stories of drunken nights at University and other random occasions spill forth. This is a very intimate game that everyone is sure to enjoy.
- Pass the Parcel
You may have played this game as kid, but it is also a great game for adults with slight variations.
You will need one big prize along with smaller prizes, wrapping paper, a pen, and music. Wrap each parcel and attach a written task on the paper. Put all the parcels together then wrap them the whole thing together. Then wrap as many layers as there are players.
Designate a music keeper who will play the music and stop it at random intervals. The person holding the parcel unwraps a layer and must complete a task. The game continues until the last layer is finally unwrapped.
Make the game more fun and interesting with risque items and embarrassing tasks. This game is loads of fun and is perfect to set the night straight.
- Pin the Hose
Another childhood favourite but with a twist. Instead of pinning the tail on a donkey, this game calls for pinning the ‘hose’ on a fireman. Use a cartoon drawing or make it even more naughty with a picture of a real fireman, the choice is yours.
For this game you will need a blindfold, a poster, a firehose drawing, a tack, and a prize. Everyone takes turns with pinning the firehose. And whoever gets the closest to the target wins the game.
- Scavenger Hunt
Here is an entertaining game you can easily set up.
All you need to do is to make a list of items to be completed. This game can either be broken into two teams or just for the bride.
Here are some fun items to include:
- A male’s business card
- A phone number
- A temporary tattoo
- A pair of chopsticks
- A tie
These are some items to help get you started. Of course, you can also add more risqué or unusual items. Pictures must be provided for photographic proof.
- Truth or Dare
A classic game that most members of the party will no doubt have played before. Before the event, each people will write down a list of truth questions or dares for the bride to complete throughout the night. These can be something innocent (i.e. asking a stranger for a picture) or embarrassing (i.e. dancing without a bra).
Here are some ideas for truth questions:
- When was your first kiss?
- What is the craziest thing you have done?
- Have you ever been with a girl?
- Do you have any secret talents?
- What is your wildest fantasy?
And here are some dares:
- Dance the Macarena
- Down two shots
- Exchange a piece of clothing with a man
- Ask someone to buy you a drink
- Dance on a table
Mix these up throughout the night but have fun with them. Prepare a prize for the bride at the end as a reward for all her hard work.
- Bridal Pictionary
This game is just like pictionary you played as a child but with a bridal theme to it. To start playing you need to have markers, slips of paper, an easel with paper, and a bowl.
Have a list of wedding related things ready for everyone to draw. Here are some words to help get you started:
Then divide the group into two teams. The first person to go picks up a slip of paper in the bowl and starts sketching for 60 seconds. If that person’s team cannot guess the word, the other team gets a shot. The team that guesses the most words wins the game.
- Toilet Paper Couture
Probably one of the most popular games for hens night, this game pits teams against each other in a race to make the most beautiful wedding dress. The only catch is each team only gets a few rolls of toilet paper and a 5 minute time limit. Other extras to add include foil, feathers, flowers, buttons, and tape.
When time is up, the model struts down an imaginary catwalk while another team member explains the inspiration behind their design. The bride then gets to judge each dress and gives it a score. The winning team receives a prize.
These incredibly fun and entertaining games are perfect for hens night. Play them throughout the night or switch it up to make things interesting. These games require very little preparation but create lasting memories.
