Ready for some game inspo? Let’s go!
1. The Mr & Mrs Quiz
The classic Mr & Mrs game never fails to get some laughs! This a great ice breaker to kick off the night. All you have to do is prep a list of questions to get the broom to answer ahead of time – for e.g. ‘What’s your favourite movie?’ or make them even more fun with some saucy questions! Then get the bride to answer on the night and see how well she knows her husband to be!
2. Only Wrong Answers
This is a fun one that is sure to get you and your girls LOLing! Simple ask some basic questions that will have obvious answers – but the twist is, you CANNOT give the correct answer! Only wrong answers will do. As simple as it sounds, this one is surprisingly hard (especially after a few drinks!).
3. The Vow Remix
For this hen party game, draft up a version of your vows (this can be fake for the game or real if you’re up for it!) and print out for each guest, making sure to leave some blank spaces to be filled in. Then simply get your girls to fill in the blank spaces in the vows with their own funny answers – the more ridiculous, the better! Read aloud at the end and you’re guaranteed a great laugh.

4. Would She Rather?
Get your competitive juices flowing with a game of ‘Would She Rather?’ Split your girls into teams of two and four 2 and have some game sheets ready with a list of scenarios. Set a time for each team to pick the choices they think the bride-to-be would choose. At the end, ask the bride-to-be what she’d actually pick. The team with the most correct answers wins!

For this naught game, each hen will bring along a pair of underwear (newly bought ones we hope!!) that best represents their personality and discreetly pop them into a designated ‘knicker box’. The bride-to-be must match the pants to the person – you could also switch up and add a pair that best represents the bride!
7. The Cocktail Making Challenge
Get the drinks flowing by setting up a station with different types of alcohol available, various mixers and garnishes. Get as creative as you like with fruit, sweets, syrups and split the hens into teams to see what they come up with – we also recommend giving these hilarious names. Let the bride choose the winning concoction!
