3. Mr and Mrs Quiz

mr-and-mrs-quiz-questions-download

Challenge the bride by testing her knowledge of her other half with that hen party game favourite, the Mr and Mrs Quiz! Get everyone involved by giving each hen a question to ask and they can choose the forfeit if the bride gives a wrong answer – making her drink a shot or putting on a item of fancy dress are great ideas.

You can download our PDF of Mr and Mrs questions by clicking on the picture above or look through the list here and pick your favourites. Just make sure to have asked her partner for their answers beforehand!

For maximum bridesmaid brownie points, try the brilliant Him&HerVideos website to create a glossy Mr and Mrs video complete with graphics and music. It’s a fantastic way to get the groom on-screen and the website does all the work for you.

4. New Nicknames

hen-party-games-5

Get the bride to come up with nicknames for all the hens and reveal them with a name tag, a fab badge like the ones above from Livi & Belle, or a personalised sash for each girl. Then everyone else has to guess why they have that nickname.

For an added twist, why not turn this into a hen party drinking game? If someone slips up and uses a real name instead of a nickname they have to have a drink (just remember to buy lots of disposable shot glasses!).

5. Who’s Who

hen-party-games-6

If you want a hen do game that really challenges the bride, ask all the hens to write down a fact about themselves on a post-it note. It could be something really simple such as ‘I got married last month’ or ‘I’m related to the bride’, or more elaborate like ‘I’ve broken my nose four times’. Give these facts to the hen to see how well she really knows her hen party.

A cute way of doing this is having her match up the post-it note fact with a polaroid photo of the hen (we love these light-up pegs from Not On The High Street). Then you can see which fact she has attributed to who, before the hens reveal the truth!

6. The Prosecco Challenge

We love this personalised prosecco game from Not On The High Street, filled with lots of bubbly-themed challenges. If you and your girls are having a big hen night out then take these pop-up dice (handy, right?) with you and get setting your hen some excellent dares. You can mix it up by making the rest of the hen party take a shot for every dare the bride completes or – if she achieves her mission – she can set a challenge of her choice for one of her hens…

If prosecco isn’t your thing, you can also find cocktail and gin versions for a great hen party game.

8. About the Bride

bride-and-groom-2

Ask each hen to write down (anonymously) on a slip of paper their favourite or funniest memory with the bride. If you have some people in attendance who might not be that close (such as members of the groom’s family or work colleagues) you could also include first impressions. Then the bride has to read them out and guess who wrote it. This is a great way to involve the bride in the ice breaking and allows people to find out more about her from her friends’ perspectives.

16. Pin the Trunks on the Hunk

hunky-man-2

Print a large picture of a ‘hunk’ – could be the groom, could be a celeb crush of the bride’s (we recommend Daniel Craig, but that’s just us). Much like pin the tail on the donkey, you can then take it in turns to pin some trunks on him whilst blindfolded. This game could be a lot ruder…use your imagination.

17. Hen Party Pictionary

hen-party-games-14

Our favourite drawing game is prime for a naughty makeover and this set makes the perfect hen party game. You can choose between clean, mixed or explicit cards, but we all know which one you should be buying… (unless your future mother-in-law is joining you.) It can easily be turned into a drinking game by making the artist take a shot every time their team can’t guess what they’ve sketched.
