Drink or Dare and Never Have I Ever are fun games for lively bachelorette parties, and scavenger hunts, dress-making games and karaoke competitions are fun for more reserved crowds. Wine, champagne and other alcoholic beverage are often part of bachelorette party games, but not all of them.
Drink or Dare is derived from Truth or Dare, but drinking replaces the truth option. Since the game gets silly or outrageous the further along it goes, some party supply stores sell dice for the game. One die has names such as Bride, Bridesmaid or Mom, while other dice contain dares. Never Have I Ever is another drinking game. One person states, “Never have I ever,” and ends the sentence with something she has never done. Anyone who has done that thing must take a drink.
Scavenger hunts are fun for large groups, especially if the party moves from place to place. They also don’t require drinking and are enjoyable for both reserved and wilder party guests. An ugly dress-making contest involves having each guest transform an ugly wedding dress using craft materials, and the guests later model them. Another fun game for everyone is a game-show-type competition using a karaoke machine and judges. Restricting the game to love songs ties it to the bachelorette-party theme.
