Are you planning a bachelorette weekend for pre-wedding bonding with your bridal party? What about a hen party with all your friends? Regardless of what kind of party you’re having, you need to plan some games to play. Games are a hallmark of bachelorette parties. They can serve as ice breakers or can increase the bonding between you and your favorite girls.
Use some cool and classy traditional bachelorette party games as party starters. Play a racy game or two to really get things going. Cap the night off by playing some drinking games if the alcohol is flowing. If your bachelorette party has to go virtual because of COVID-19 concerns, we’ve even got some virtual games, too.
Bachelorette Party Drinking Games
Drinking games can help break the ice because of lowered inhibitions. Non-drinkers and underaged guests can still participate. Simply have them play with their favorite beverage in a fancy glass for inclusive and welcoming bachelorette drinking games.
1. Bachelorette Roulette
A fun and boozy game of chance! Update this casino classic with a spinner wheel and the types of drinks available. Everyone takes turns spinning, and whoever has that kind of drink has to drink! Since you can easily make this spinner wheel yourself, this is one of the easiest DIY bachelorette party games.
2. Prosecco Pong
Wait to play this one until everyone has had a chance to partake in a little alcohol. After all, coordination is for the sober, right? Prosecco pong is one of the best boozy drinking games for bachelorette parties out there! This game swaps beer for champagne and the Solo cups of your college days for some (plastic) wine glasses.
Split your bridal party into two teams, and see who can get the most pong balls to stay in the other team’s glasses. Just remember, you’re playing with glasses that are shallower than regular beer pong glasses. You might want to have some towels handy for spillage.
3. The Newlywed Game
This is an old favorite among couple wedding shower games. Have the bachelorette party host email the groom-to-be a list of questions beforehand and gather his responses. If you’re having a couples party, this is also a great one to play in person! Games questions can range from “what can’t she live without in the mornings” to “what is her biggest pet peeve?”
Ask the bride-to-be the questions and then have her guess what her partner answered for each one. If she’s right, everyone else takes a sip of their drinks. If she’s wrong, she takes a sip of her drink.
4. The “Drink If” Game
Basically, this is the “never have I ever” of wedding shower games. Everyone’s favorite college game gets a bachelorette party makeover, because all the “drink ifs” somehow relate to the happy couple. Each guest takes turns reading off a pre-written list of “drink ifs.” If a line applies to you, drink. If it doesn’t, don’t drink. Then pass the list to the next person and keep playing. Some examples of fun “drink ifs” include, “I’ve known the bride since we still had baby teeth” and “I’ve hooked up with a guy with the groom’s name.”
5. Donut on a String
Hello, competitive eating! This is a grownup version of the donut-on-a-string game everybody loved at Halloween parties as a kid. You have to tie the donuts to strings and attach them to the ceiling or doorway. Tension rods in a doorway work really well. Then line up however many competitors can fit, make them stand with their hands behind their backs, and go!
If a donut falls, that player is out. The player who either finishes her donut first or is the last one left with a donut on her string wins. For this messiest of bachelorette party games, choose frosted donuts with sprinkles to increase the fun factor.
Slightly Dirty Bachelorette Games
These naughty bachelorette party games are best played at an adults-only party. It’s your last night as a single woman, so why not spice it up with some raunchy fun? Here are a few ideas your friends will absolutely love!

2. Share Your Dirtiest Thoughts
Everyone has that friend who’s mind is always in the gutter. This is her game. Everyone gets a list of questions. One example is, “What starts with F, ends with CK, and is something you want when things get hot?” (Answer: a firetruck.) This will surely be one of everyone’s favorite funny guessing games.
3. Drop Your Panties
Next up is an easy bachelorette party game, and it just happens to be a bachelorette party classic. Each guest brings a pair of panties that shows off their personality. It’s the bride’s job to match the undies correctly to each friend. It’s a little silly, but it seems a shame that you’re the only one who sees your rainbow unicorn boy shorts.
4. Adult Pictionary
