Most bachelorette weekends are massive amounts of fun. More often than not, they end up leading to new friendships, amazing memories, and stronger bonds.
However, they can be a little bit awkward at first when you know you’re supposed to be having a “wild weekend,” but you’ve got nothing to break the ice.
Bachelorette party games are one of the best ways to make sure that you don’t end up with any dull moments on one of the most exciting adventures your Bride will have before marriage.
Whether they’re DIY bachelorette games that you download and make yourself or board games bought off the internet, there’s something for everyone.
To help you make your upcoming bachelorette party one to remember, we’ve tracked down the ultimate games to satisfy any squad.

1. The Lingerie Guessing Game
Here’s a DIY bachelorette game that combines gifts for the bride with fun for the whole crew. To play, everyone buys a piece of lingerie that they feel is most descriptive of their personality to give the bride. When everyone’s gifts have been delivered and mixed up, the Bride has to guess who gave her what. It’s a fun way for the bridesmaids to show just how well they know each other and laugh together too.
To up the stakes, you can have the bride take a drink every time she makes an incorrect guess. By the end of the night, you’ll have giggled yourself silly, and your bride will have some new pieces of underwear to remember her friends by in the years to come.
2. Never Have I Ever
Never Have I Ever is a well-known staple of bachelor and bachelorette parties around the world. There’s a good chance that you’ve played this game once or twice on a drunken night with friends too. The great thing about this game is that it’s incredibly easy to play – you don’t need to prep anything in advance.
However, if you’re worried that you might not be able to come up with any good things to claim you’ve “never” done, then you can always invest in the “Never Have I ever” board game for some extra help.
The suggestion cards in this kit will take some of the pressure off the maid of honor’s shoulders and ensure that she can relax while the fun is taking place.
3. Scavenger Huntress
Sometimes, to have some fun with Bachelorette party games, you need to come up with the idea that gets everyone up on their feet and doing something together.
A scavenger huntress game splits your bridesmaids and other attendees into teams and gives them a list of items they need to acquire.
Ideally, you’ll need to put some rules in place telling people what they can and can’t do. For instance, your players can scavenge materials and “borrow” them off people, but they can’t go out and buy anything.
A scavenger hunt is an excellent opportunity for the maid of honor to get creative. Try to come up with things that are meaningful to your bride.
For instance, you could ask people to get a selfie at the place where the bride and groom had their first kiss.
You can also use clues instead of telling people exactly what to get so that you can find out who knows the bride best.
4. Drawing Without Dignity
Need something to get your crew in the right mood before you head out on the town?
Or how about something that you can play when you’re in the minibus on the way to your party?
Drawing without Dignity is a simple and compact card game that you can carry with you on the move.
It’s essentially an uncensored version of Pictionary, with 670 NSFW things that you can draw and laugh over with your friends.
Don’t worry about messing up your drawings when you’re going over speed bumps or turning around corners on a bus either.
The great thing about this game is that the worse your pictures are, the more hilarious the experience becomes.
If you have time before the party, we recommend going through and picking 50-100 cards that seem most appropriate for bachelorette fun.
5. The Newlywed Game
There are two different ways that you can play this game, depending on the style of your bachelorette party.
The first option is to put your DIY bachelorette game skills to the test and bring the bride and groom together for a more “traditional” version of the game.
You can ask things with the bride and groom sitting back to back and ask them to write down their answers on a whiteboard.
For instance, a question might be “What’s your favorite part of her body,” or “What annoys her most about you?”
If you do explore this option, then it’s worth recording the whole experience.
You can either save the video as a memento for the bride and groom, or you could consider showing it at the wedding reception (as long as it’s PG enough).
The other option is to play the game with the girls in attendance.
Ask questions that all of the women have to answer about the bride and find out who gets the most right.
Either way, this is one of the easiest bachelorette party games to play and one that makes for great memories too.
6. Dress the Bride
One of the main reasons why Bachelorette parties are so much fun is that they let you go a little bit wild.
After one or two bachelorette party drinking games, you’ll be ready to get a bit more ridiculous, and that’s where this game comes in.
Split your girls up into two groups and give them a collection of clothing to dress the bride up with before she goes out on the town for drinks.
Remember, the aim here is to make your bride look as silly and over-the-top as possible with glitter, feather boas, veils, and anything else you can think of.
When you’re finished dressing her up, make sure that you take plenty of photographs that she can add to her wedding album.
It’s also worth taking a spare outfit that she can change into when she’s sick and tired of feeling embarrassed by her clothes.
If you feel like getting crazy, and you’re sure it’s not going to rain, then you could even try making your Bride a wedding dress out of toilet roll and paper towels.
7. For the Girls
If you want all the fun of games like “Never Have I Ever” and “Truth or Dare” for your bachelorette party, but you don’t want the pressure of having to come up with endless ideas yourself, this is the complete package for you.
The “For the Girls” party pack contains everything you need for a fantastic night, including 100 best-of-the-best cards, 100 truth or dare cards, and 100 never have I ever cards.
The best way to use this kit? Sit down with it one night and pick some of the most exciting and outrageous dares that your friends will be willing to do. Then hand the cards out to the people in your crew before you go out drinking.
You can use the “Best of the Best” and Never Have I ever cards separately to break the ice when you’re first starting the night.
For the Girls is a fantastic game made by the producers of the world-famous “What do You Meme” boardgame.
8. Prosecco Pong
Bachelorette drinking games can make or break your Bride’s day.
Why not have a little fun, while showing off your classy side with a set of Prosecco pong? Based on the traditional game “Beer Pong,” all you need is a few bottles of prosecco to get started.
You can buy a set online which comes with 12 plastic champagne saucers and 3 pink ping pong balls.
If you’ve never played beer pong before, here’s how it works.
Working in two teams – perhaps the guests against the bride, you try to bounce a ping-pong ball into the other team’s prosecco glasses.
If the ball lands in one of the cups, the cup is removed from play, and the opposing team member needs to drink whatever is inside.
If nothing else, if you play this game as a group versus your bride, then you’ll find a quick way to get her drunk and ready for the craziness of the nights ahead.
What’s more, since the glasses are made of plastic, you don’t have to worry about making too much of a mess if things get out of hand!
