Let the Bachelorette Games Begin!
For a long weekend with a group of gals it's good to have a few games in your back pocket. They can be ideal for bonding a group of bridesmaids that don't know each other, used as distraction while trying to busting through a crippling hangover or simply something to do while lounging poolside.
Everyone knows the tried and true games played on a bachelorette. Classic "scavenger hunt" where your bride has a checklist of things to do when y'all go out. There's also the ask the groom to answer questions and then see if the bride can guess what he said. If that sounds like a dream to your bride, no need to read further. Start making your list! If your looking to mix it up try one of these.
Name That Tune: Have all the bridesmaids send a song that reminds them of the bride and make a playlist on Spotify. Play each song and have the bride guess who picked it. Childhood jams, boy bands and that one summer of eruo hits will inevitably lead to great stories and a lot of laughs. Turn this into a drinking game or for every correct guess the bride can open that person's shower present.
Skeletons in the Closet: Warning: this should only be played if your bride has a good sense of humor, healthy perspective on past flings, and there aren't any awkward ex-boyfriends dating or married to a bridesmaid. Have the bridesmaids pick an ex or a fling and write down a clue, one liner, funny fact on a pice of paper and mix them in a bowl. Have the bride randomly pull the clue out and try to guess what skeleton from her past dating life you are talking about. Obviously, turn this into a drinking game. Great for cocktail hour.
Beach, Pool, Lake Olympics and Drinking Games: If your bachelorette-ing near a body of water or wide open field and your bride is on the athletic or competitive side opt for some kind of activity. Think high school field day or maybe just channel her favorite college parties. Beer pong, flip cup and the like are all fair game. Keep score and force the losers to buy the first round of drinks!
The one golden rule of the Bachelorette is to know your audience - especially the bride. If it's not "her" don't do it. No matter how much fun you had playing it at the last bachelorette, or your own... this time, it's not about you!
