So now that you have the perfect bachelorette destination chosen, the perfect bride tribe, now you are probably thinking well now what! Now it’s time to choose what activities you will do on this amazing girl’s trip to make it special for the Bride! My number 1 tip is Pinterest! There are so many ideas from small details to incorporate through the weekend and actual activities games. I will start off with some of my favorite games/activities:
Lingerie shower: I think lingerie showers are so fun and such a good idea with a smaller group of girlfriends and some cocktails! I have seen where some bride’s receive lingerie as a gift at the bridal shower, and I think I would be mortified opening that in front of my future in-laws, so I think the bachelorette is a more appropriate event for this. Maid/Matron’s of Honor if you are reading this, there are a couple of ways you can go about this, you can either let the bride know, and have her give you her bra/panty size or if you want to completely surprise her you can maybe ask the groom to give you her sizes without her knowing and you can relay the message to the rest of the girls. Another cute idea in regards to the lingerie shower, is maybe pick a theme for the girls to shop for such as maybe the brides favorite color, or to the bride’s personality.
Scavenger Hunt: We did this in Jamaica and it was tons of fun and definitely made us bring the fun wherever we went. Pinterest has really good templates that can be used as a guide to make your own. This is the one we came up with for Jamaica. Our “rules” were to complete try to get the most points by the end of the trip (we tallied up scores on our way back to the airport lol), and we split up in teams by rooms, so whoever was rooming together, that was your team. This worked out because we had about 3 girls in each room so it made it even. As for a prize we did 3 giftbags with a chick fil a giftcard and mini liquor bottles!
The Panty Game: I found this idea on Pinterest as well but essentially, each girl buys a new panty for the bride (so MOH, you will need to find out her panty size) then all the panties are mixed up; think basket, gift bag etc. Without the bride knowing who got her which one, make sure to get them in one place like the basket to then gift it to the bride. This is where the fun starts, the bride will grab one panty at a time and she will have to guess which girl gifted it to her. So the panty should speak to your personality. For instance if you are obsessed with avocados and everyone knows this, then getting a panty with an avocado will make the bride’s guess a little easier. There’s not a real winner per say, but the brides reaction to each panty will be priceless and so worth it.
“Drink if”-Bride Edition: Very similar to more popular drinking games such as 2 truths 1 lie, or never have I ever. In this case, you can make a list lets say 10-12 items related to the bride. Each girl will get a chance to read out loud a sentence going down from the list and if you have done this acticity then you take a drink with the bride. Here are some examples:
Drink if.. you have known the bride for 10 years or longer
Drink if.. you have gone on a trip with the bride
Drink if.. you are engaged or married
Drink if.. you are wearing black underwear
So the possibilities are endless for this game and such a good “icebreaker” if you will for the beginning of the trip.
I’d love to hear if you try out any of these ideas, or any of your favorite bachelorette games!
