Nobody can resist a good game right? Even the most sophisticated of groups can enjoy a few games, especially on a weekend with the girls. This will be perfect if you are planning a life drawing hen party and want to add some games into the day! We have done all the research for you and put together a list of the top 28 classy hen party games that will be perfect to add into your celebrations.
1. Mr & Mrs Quiz
Test how well the couple know each other
The Mr & Mrs quiz will take some preparation before you play it as you will have to ask the groom to be questions before the trip. Once you’ve got his answers to the questions ready you will then be able to ask the bride to be. It’s the perfect light hearted bit of fun to see how well the soon to be weds really know each other! You could also have the groom to be on facetime or something if you are wanting to play the game real time.
2. Advice for the Bride
There’s nothing like advice off friends
You can either get nice decretive cards or premade advice for the bride cards from places like Etsy. Once you’ve acquired your cards pass them out to all the girls in the hen group. Then over the duration of the weekend they can all fill their cards with different advice for the bride that surrounds the wedding and marriage topics. At the end of the trip she can then read through them all and keep them as a reminder of the weekend.
3. Would She Rather?
Who knows the bride to be best?
The bride will put together different would you rather questions that will relate to her. Once she has got them together she can then say them aloud to the rest of the group. Everyone will then have to write down their answer depending on what they think the bride would rather. Once she has finished saying all the questions she can then go through them giving her answer. The person at the end of the game with the most points wins.
4. Prosecco Pong
Test your aim and your drinking skills
Grab your prosecco glasses and your ping pong balls and get ready to throw some balls! Arrange your glasses in the usual formation and fill them to the top with your favourite fizz. Then take it in turns each team to throw a ball. If you get the ball in the glass the player on the opposite team has to drink the prosecco in that glass. It’s that simple…and it’s the perfect way to get drunk before the night out!
5. Toilet Paper Wedding Dress
Who says fashion can’t include a toilet roll?
You will be able to get creative with this one as you split up into smaller groups and decide on who is going to model your toilet paper wedding dress. With a 10 minute timer on you will be able to use your equipment and plenty of toilet roll to make the best wedding dress. When the time is up your bride will have to model the dress down the make shift runway for the real bride-to-be to judge and decide which is her favourite.
6. Dancing Queen
The best kind of dance off
Start with the bride to be, complete a dance move, and pass it onto the next hen. They then need to perform your dance move and add their own onto the dance. Then the next hen does the same and you keep going until it’s a complete dance routine. Each time a hen forgets a move or misses some out they are disqualified. This will keep going until there are only two people left which then ends up as a dance off. The winner will then be crowned as the dancing queen.
7. Girls Night Confessions
Let out your deepest, darkest secrets
All write out a true fact, secret, or confession about yourselves on a piece of paper, fold it up and place it inside of a bag. Then each hen will take it in turns to take out a confession and read it out to the group. Once you have read the confession you will have to take your guesses on who you think its about. If you are right you get to have a chocolate from a chocolate box you’ve got. If you are wrong you have to take a shot.
8. Hen Party Scavenger Hunt
A treasure hunt for adults
Whether you print out a scavenger hunt printable you find online or you make your own this is the perfect addition to your evening.

9. Bridal Pinata
Who has the most force behind their hit?
Like your standard game of pinata, bridal pinata is just the same but as well as sweets and treats inside you will also have bridal themed items like garters, tiaras, veils and more! You can get as creative as you want with this one. Take the large hitting stick and take it in turns hitting the pinata until the contents of it falls to the ground. Then of course its anyone’s game as you try to pick up as many of the treats as possible.
10. Kisses for the Mrs
Take a picture frame and add some backing card that will fit inside of the frame. Then when all the girls are together take a pen and your favourite lipstick and kiss the card and sign underneath it!

It’s the perfect hen party memento that we are sure the bride-to-be will love and keep as a reminder event.
11. Guess the Dress
Whose guess is the closest?
Grab some small pieces of card, drawing materials and make sure all the hens are feeling creative for this one. You will have 10 minutes to draw out what you think the brides wedding dress is going to look like. Once the 10 minutes is up the bride will then take them all in and look through them all. She can then decide which are her top 3 favourite ones and which is closest to what her dress looks like. Of course only if she wants to.
12. Send to All
Keep away from the phone…
This one doesn’t need too much of an explanation. All you need to know is that no phones are allowed during this section of the weekend. If someone breaks this rule then the rest of the group can put together a text message that they send out to the whole of their contacts. This game is all about how good your will power is.
13. Banned Words
Don’t say it!
The perfect game to test your memory. Banned words is where you and the girls will put together a list of words that you are all banned from saying.

14. Balloon Questions
You are never prepared for the pop of a balloon
Get each of the hens to write down a question (as naughty or nice as they want) and place it inside of a balloon. Then blow all of the balloons up and place them around the room. You can then either do it where the bride-to-be pops the balloons throughout the night and answers the questions. Or you can all take it in turns popping a balloon and answering the question that is inside.
15. Gin Pong
Like prosecco…but with gin!
If you are more of a gin girl than you are prosecco this game is for you! Whether you want to shot the gin or add some mixer to it both will work perfect for this game. Simply arrange the glasses on either end of a table, 10 on each side. Then fill then with your gin of choice and take it in turns throwing the ball into the opposing teams drinks. If you manage to get it in the person playing on the other team has to drink! And vice versa, the winning team at the end is the ones who got rid of all of the opposing teams drinks!
16. Hen Do Pictionary
Channel your inner artist
Whether you’re a good drawer or not, hen do Pictionary is always a laugh and something that all the girls will like.

24. True or False
Who knows the bride the most?
Before the party the bride to be will put together a variety of true and false statements about herself. Then when its time to play the game she will read out each statement and then all the players will write down whether they think its true or false.

25. Pass the Parcel
This game has no age limit
Get together a main present and little gifts to put through the different layers and wrap it all before the event.

Keep going until someone ends up with the main present at the end!
