Some Hen/Shower game ideas
Posted 24 May 2005 - 09:40 PM
Starting with the person sitting to the left of the bride, go around the room until each guest has told their wedding date, if unmarried use their birthday. The person whose date is the closest to the wedding date/date of engagement is the winner

This is a sentimental and emotional games. All the guests have to sit around in a circle and starting from the person to the left of the bride everyone states what they most fondly remember about the first time they met the bride, or their most cherished memory of the bride

At the beginning of the shower give a gift to the second person arriving, and the fifth, and eighth (however many you decide). Instruct everyone who arrives not to cross their legs (or some other action) if a guest is caught doing the action she has to forfeit her gift to whoever caught her. You could include gifts from other games, It is a great ice-breaker and gets everyone to keep an eye on everyone else.

Put the guests into groups and give each group a stack of old magazines, scissors and a photo album page. Assign each group a topic and have the groups make a collage pertaining to their topic.

Everyone should be sitting in a circle formation. Starting with the host, she states one word describing the party, the second person must say the first work and add another, the next person must say both words plus add another, and so on.

Guests are divided into groups and given a few toilet rolls. Each group must pick a model and make a wedding dress out of the toilet paper. When the fun ends the bride then chooses a winner after a fashion parade.

Every person is handed a piece of paper, pen and a hard covered book. They are all instructed to put their names on the paper and then turn it over and put it on the book. Then they are to all put the books on their heads (with the clean side of the paper facing upward). They have to draw what the bride I will look like on her wedding day (making the drawing as detailed as they can- with a veil, jewelry, a train, etc.... Allow them 2 minutes to finish their drawings. Then they can take the book off their heads and look at their masterpieces, (It is a crack-up). Then hand all of the papers to the bride to vote on which one is the very best. Then turn the paper over to see who had drawn it. The bride can keep all of the drawings and look at them fondly over the years.

This is best about 30 minutes into the party. Have everyone sit in a designated area and hand them a piece of paper and pen. Then ask the bride-to-be to leave the room. Now have each guest describe on paper everything they can remember about what the bride is wearing and to get as detailed as possible. (earrings, shoes, stockings?, make-up, watch, dress, pants, blouse...etc...) The more detailed the information the better it is. Give them 5 minutes and then tell them to stop writing. Then invited the bride back in. The winner is the person that described the most.

You can also play catch the bouquet where you pinn paper flowers to a dart board. The girls have three chances to hit the flower with a dart, and the closest one wins the game.

There are many variations of this game. The host buys a bag of colorful clothespins. Each guest receives one when the arrive. During the game the guests are forbidden from saying a particular word. Some variations prevent you from mentioning the groom's name, some prevent you from saying the word "No". If another guest catches you saying the forbidden word during the game, they get your clothespin. The wedding shower guest with the most clothespins at the end of the game wins the prize.

This one is a game as well as an ice breaker. When guests arrive to the party, each one is given a clothes pin (usually decorated in the theme colors of the wedding ) and instructed NOT to mention the Grooms name during the entire shower. If someone catches another person saying his name, they (the person that said his name) must give up their clothes pin to the "catcher". At the end of the shower, the person with the most "pins" is declared the winner and WINS a prize. This is a fun way of keeping the party interactive and helps people to relax a bit easier.

As guests arrive they are handed an envelope and asked to write their address on it, then it's put in a basket. One envelope is drawn, and the winning guest receives a prize. Then the envelopes (already addressed) along with the thank you cards were given to the mother, making it very easy to send.

Have a combined party for all of the wedding attendants. The best way to do it was to pass out sort of a multiple choice (or multiple guess for those who don't know much) test to see how well they knew the bride and groom and their relationship. The person (or couple) with the most questions right wins a prize like movie passes. Some good questions were "Where did they eat at during our first date", "What weird thing happened during their second date at his house" (in one couple's case, no one got that one right...the answer was that his goat started giving birth).

Suck for A Buck Now as rude as this sounds, its actually great fun! All you need is a shirt for the Hen to wear, and you sew some lifesavers onto the shirt and have people you meet during the night bite one of the lifesavers off the shirt for $1.00. You can also do this with a candy necklace, and have the candies bitten off necklace! A different version from paying a buck is to have a list of dares that the bride has to complete for the night, and each time she does one, the man she was doing the dare with gets to bite off a lifesaver! This is great fun and gets others involved as well.
"I Never..." This game is great fun! It's one of my favourites, and it's great to play at home before you hit the town., it gets the drinks flowing and you can make it specific to any given person! All you have to do is sit around with your friends, and start a phrase with "I Never..." Anyone who has done the act you are talking about has to drink a shot of alcohol straight down. You can start with a simple one such as "I never lied about my weight" or "I never had sex in a car" or "I never wore a skirt without underwear" and so on. You will see some slowly down their drink, and hope you aren't watching! The drunker you get the more risqué the "I never's..:" become!
Scavenger Hunt; Come up with a list of things that the Hen must obtain throughout the night, such as a man's business card, a condom from a guy's wallet, a pair of boxers or briefs and so on! The Hen has to get all the things on the list so remember to be a little realistic with this one! There are a few different variations with this one. Instead of having items that she must obtain, you can make a list of dares that the Hen must perform, such as asking a guy for change for the condom machine, asking the bartender how to make a slippery nipple, handcuffing a guy to her and taking him to the bathroom, etc. This is limited only by your imagination, and the Hen's ego!
Truth or Dare; This is always a good one to play at home and you can continue it when you are out on the town. Be careful what you dare, she just may do it!
Role Playing; When you send the invitations to the Hen's Night, let each guest know they have to dress up as their favourite character and they have to stay in character all night. They can be anyone they like, from Marilyn Munroe, to Wilma Flintstone, to Malibu Barbie!
Truth or Dare with a Twist; All party guests sit around drinking their normal beverage of choice. In the middle is a shot of something really nice, e.g. Cocksucking Cowboy (1 part baileys, 1 part butterscotch schnapps). The Host then asks each guest in turn an "I Never....." question - renamed Truth or Dare question. e.g. I never did a striptease for a partner, I never used a sex toy, I never had sex in a car etc etc. Each guest has the choice of answering Truth or Dare. Most guests will answer truth because they really want to drink the shot, however........ If the guest answers Truth they drink the shot, but must tell "where, when and who with". If the guest answers Dare, they pick a dare out of the hat. A "Dare" can include anything humiliating e.g. Kiss a bald man with a tattoo, Get a guy's chest hair, Take off your bra while in the bar etc etc. The guest keeps the "Dare" until you go to the clubs. When carrying out a dare it must be witnessed by the host and the bride. The good thing about this game is that it starts are home and ends at a club.
Pin The Bouquet
What you will need:
Poster size pic of the Bride (or sketch will do!), A blindfold, A flower with a pin, A shot glass, A bottle of champagne!
Ideally you should have a pic of the bride blown up into poster size, although a sketch will do! Each guest is blindfolded, spun around three times, given a shot of champagne and then handed a flower with a pin attached. Each guest must then try and pin the flower to the brides hand (in the pic of course!) The guest who gets closest wins. Mark each guests name on the poster, (it is hilarious how far off people can be!) and give to the bride as a memento.
What you will need: Small bowls, Spoons, A full pantry
Fill each bowl with a sample of a food substance ie flour, sauces, spices etc and stick the name of each under the bowl. Each guest is given a spoon and must taste the contents, and write down on a piece of paper what their guess is. The guest who has the most correct wins.
What you will need: A good memory!
Make a list of all your guests and give them to everyone as they arrive. Before you start opening your presents, tell them to pay attention to who gave what. When all gifts are opened, everyone must write down on their lists what each guest gave! The one with the most correct wins.
Who Am I?
What you will need: To be up on your celebrity news!
All guests write the name of a famous bride (either real or fictitious) on a small piece of paper and puts it in a hat. Everyone then picks one, and without looking at the name, licks it and sticks it on their forehead! Everyone gets to ask a question about who they are, for example "Am I real?", and can continue with another question if they get a yes answer. When they get a no answer, the next person gets to ask a question about who they are. When you get an idea of who you might be, you can take a guess, but can only guess three times before you are out. The person who guesses who they are first wins.
Do You Know The Bride?
What you will need: A crash course on the Bride!
The bride makes up a questionnaire of about 20 questions about herself and hands them out to all her guests. Everyone then writes their answers the best they can. When everyone has finished, all the guests read out their answers one by one, and then the bride can correct them! The person with the most correct answers wins. All questionnaires should then be put into a folder for the Bride to keep!
I Went To...
What you will need: Champagne, and a good memory!
This game is particularly good after a few bottles of bubbly! Everyone sits in a circle and the first person to start the game must say "I went to (Bride's name) Wedding and I . . . . "adding a sentence. The next person must then start from the beginning, saying what the first person said, and then adding another sentence. Continue around the circle until someone forgets the story, and then is out of the game. The person who is left wins. It is also a nice touch to tape the game for the bride to keep.
What you will need: Creativity!
Everyone gets into a team of two, and are given a wedding word. In 10 minutes each team must make up a wedding poem about the bride and groom that incorporates their given word. When everyone is finished, there should be a reading of all the poems, and the bride can choose the winner. Afterwards all the poems should be put into an album for the bride to keep.
What you will need: A white or black board, White board pens, An egg timer, Basic artistic ability!
You will need a white board so all the guests can see the drawings and an egg timer. Everyone writes down a word related to the wedding theme and puts them in a bowl. Then in pairs, one picks a word and attempts to draw it on the white board, and the other has to guess what it is, beating the one minute egg timer. If successful you get one point. The pair with the most points wins.
What you will need: A sense of humour!
A classic game that everyone knows. The only catch is that every movie, song, book etc must be wedding related.
Pass the Parcel Wedding style
What you will need: Brown Paper, A gift, Questions about the bride
Wrap a gift in many layers of paper. To get to open the next layer you have to answer a question on the outside layer, whether it be a question about the bride or anything wedding related!

Cut 15-20 circles out of cardboard with a diameter of about 10cms and number them with a black texta 1-20 or so.
Buy an old daggy looking Dress from the Op Shop.
With a permanent black texta, use one of the circles to trace circles onto the dress in various places. Then number the circles on the dress.
The aim: when you run into a male throughout the night, let them pick a circle out of the box and he has to find the number on the dress and cut the circle out.
You can also do it within the group of girls you are with. You can have it as a prize for winning another game etc.
You must ensure the Hen is wearing decent underwear otherwise you will all be in for a cheap surprise.
It is also quite fun to place the circles in "funny" parts of the dress.
I remember one hens day we played this game, ironically the 2 circles that were placed on her b00bs where the first to go! It was great!
Beware, this is not a game to be played if the Hen is not keen on showing some skin.
