Free Bachelorette Party Games

Written by

So, you need something to kick-start your bachelorette party. How about some free Bachelorette party games?

Games at a bachelorette party can be anything from naughty to nice, from stone-cold sober to almost passed-out but they should be fun and they should get people talking to each other. And the great thing is that you can pick some up for free!

Drinking Games

What kind of games are the best games for a bachelorette party then? It depends on the mood of the party – if all the girls are wild and want to get drunk, then a drinking game like “20 questions” will get the party started. If it’s quieter and more civilized, you might want to do something like a “how well do you know the bride” quiz, with answers suitable for any moms and aunties that might be there.

Drink if

But let’s assume for now that you’re with the rowdy girls. Well, how about this for an easily-organised, low cost game – the “drink if” game. It’s simple to do – just write out a list beforehand and then call them out and everyone drinks…So, you might say “drink if you’ve ever been to Alaska” and everyone who’s done that has to drink. It’s very easy, but will get everyone drinking and you might even find out some things about each other that you didn’t know. The questions can be as innocent or as rude as you like, but the aim is to get the drinks flowing!


Or how about a list of dares? Bachelorettes can divide into teams and each one has a list of dares to do – dance on a table, kiss a bald guy’s head, do the splits – and whoever does their dares first wins. Just remember – what happens on the bachelorette party stays on the bachelorette party. You may want to make sure no-one’s uploading photos to Facebook or live-tweeting the night. Otherwise, there could be a whole load of embarrassment the next day (and possibly no wedding to go to).

What’s in the purse?

So, onto some tamer games you could play in front of the bride’s mom. How about “What’s in the purse?” – everyone has to guess an item that might be in the bride’s purse and then she has to open it out in front of everybody. Anyone who guessed an item wins! Then everyone else could empty out their purses too. Again, prepare for embarrassment as people see the guilty secrets of the bottom of your bag (used tissues? Fluffy mints?) but it’s a safe kind of embarrassment!

The peg game

The peg game is another fun one and all you need is a packet of clothes pegs (you can ask the girls to bring their own). Everyone has 5 pegs on their top and no-one is allowed to say “bride” or “wedding” or any other words you choose. If they slip up, then the person who catches them out gets to wear their peg! It goes on until everyone’s lost all their pegs and there’s one smug person there wearing the whole lot. It can go on through the whole party is you like!

The underwear game

Of course, it doesn’t have to be just raunchy or just tame – you can find a happy middle ground. Like the underwear game. Everyone brings a piece of their underwear (clean) and hangs it up around the room. Then you all have to guess who brought what. You could even make it a test for the bride, where a wrong answer means she has to drink. Just be aware though – people can surprise you. The most innocent looking person may have the sexiest thong!

I hope you’re feeling suitably inspired now. Enjoy your free bachelorette party games and have a night to remember!

About the author

Hiya. I’m Gaynor – Hen Party planner extraordinaire.

A few years ago my best mate Sally asked me to be her bridesmaid. With that came the responsibility of organising the Hen Do which was an exciting but slightly daunting prospect. I had a reputation as a bit of a party girl so the expectations were high. The challenge was the budget – there wasn’t one! But with a bit of improvisation and a lot of imagination I managed to pull it off.

The success of the night was mainly due to the unique and fun Hen Party Games I’d organised to get everyone interacting and laughing. On this site I’ll share some of the best ones I’ve discovered over the years.
