Before you and your bridesmaids take the bride-to-be out for a night on the town, you must first loosen up with some fun pregame festivities. Trust us when we say there’s no better way to get the party poppin’ and the giggles goin’ than playing a grownup game or two. Not only will you learn a lot about your fellow bridesmaids, you’ll be making memories to look back on and laugh about for years to come. Below we’ve provided ten ice-breaking bachelorette party games guaranteed to start your night off with a bang.
1. Would She Rather
First on the list of bachelorette party games is a fun spin on the traditional “How Well Do You Know The Bride” game. Instead of answering a specific question about the bride, you’ll have to guess which of the two choices she would prefer. If your group is on the conservative side, play it safe with our FREE PG-13 template. If you’re not afraid to get really weird with it, we highly recommend this X-rated edition. If you’re not sold on either option, feel free to put together your own version by asking each bridesmaid to contribute a couple of choices.
2. Drink If
Similar to “Would She Rather”, “Drink If” is an adaptation of the popular “Never Have I Ever” game. Instead of having to come up with scenarios of things you’ve never done to get others to drink, you simply have to drink if you have done what’s been said. Print off this cute rose gold template and take turns reading aloud until you’ve completed rounds 1-4 (or you’ve done so many things you can’t possibly take another sip). For a more personal twist, ask your bride and fellow maids to contribute a few ideas and create a master list to play with.
Speaking of Never Have I Ever, we love this girl’s edition of the game that comes full of 224 cards, 8 custom paddles, and a spinner. The fun twist on this game is that the more you’ve done (or are willing to ADMIT that you’ve done), the better you do! This game also doubles as a gift for the bride-to-be for future GNOs.
4. Two Truths And A Lie
This is one of our favorite bachelorette party games because it can be played two different ways, making it a great option for any group. If you want to use this game as an icebreaker to help the girls get to know each other a bit better, go with the traditional rules. Each girl says three facts about herself, two truths and one lie, then the group tries to guess the fib. For the bachelorette-themed version, have each girl write three memories they have involving the bride, two truths and one lie, and have the group guess the fable. We suggest playing both versions as a fun way to bond with your bride tribe before the big day.
From the creators of What Do You Meme?, For The Girls is a ladies-only adult party game that “every group of girlfriends needs”. What we love most about this option, aside from the GIRLS ONLY part, is its versatility. It combines 5 different styles of game- Truth or Dare, I Have Never, Rapid Fire, Best of the Best and Most Likely To- into one awesome package. P.S. This is another one of our bachelorette party games that makes for a great gift for the bride-to-be!
6. Bachelorettes Against Decency
We absolutely love this bachelorette version of Cards Against Humanity. Not only are the rules super simple (and well-known), it’s the ultimate way to break the ice and have everyone laughing their booties off. Simply download and print off these premade question and answer cards and you’re good to go! P.S. Beware that this is one of those bachelorette party games that does contain sexual content and adult language, so make sure the bride and her girls aren’t afraid of the X rating.
If X-rated bachelorette party games are your thing, here’s another hilarious option for you. Described as a better version of Cards Against Humanity, That’s What She Said is “the party game of twisted innuendos”. With 58 question and 400 answer cards included, you and your girls could be laughing for hours over this fun game. The best part is that once the bachelorette weekend is over, you can gift this game to your bride and her groom to keep at their home for future get-togethers.
If you’re looking for a game that you can play while you’re out and about, this is the perfect choice. These scratch-off Bachelorette Dare Cards are ridiculously hilarious, especially once all the girls get some liquid courage! They even come with 5 blank dare cards, so you and your group can come up with your own unique set of dares. The only rule of this game is to have your cameras out and ready to snap some seriously funny photos.
9. Pin The Junk On The Hunk
Yes, this is exactly what you think it is- an adult version of pin the tail on the donkey. Trust us when we say you and your bride tribe will be belly laughing after a round of this game. Check out all your celeb crush choices here, and as an added bonus, there’s an option to submit your own photo. P.S. We know what you’re thinking and the answer is yes, you are 100% permitted to use the groom’s face for some serious LOLs.
10. Prosecco Pong
Last but not least on our list of bachelorette party games is a fun spin on the old college favorite- beer pong. Because we doubt your bride tribe wants to be rockin’ beer bellies on your night out, we’ve switched the brews for bubbles. While this option isn’t as much of a “get to know you” game, you’ll certainly learn a lot about each girl when things get competitive. The only thing not included with your prosecco pong purchase is the booze, so don’t forget to stock up!
