I’ve done a lot of searching for bachelorette party games, and, to be honest, most seem pretty cheesy and I can’t imagine a group of grown women playing them. But there is one game I’ve played at a few parties that is always fun: The Fiancé Quiz. It’s similar to the Newlywed Game, but with only one member of the couple present. A few weeks before the party, compile a list of questions and send them to the groom-to-be with specific instructions not to mention it to his significant other. (I actually recommend putting this in the email header. One groom said he started reading my email aloud to his bride before realizing what is was and suddenly shutting up.)
The questions can range from simple, like “when is your anniversary” or “what was your first date” to scandalous, like “what’s the wildest place you’ve had sex.” I try to tailor it to the couple and always encourage the guy to throw in a few of his own (these can be some of the funniest because the guys get so specific).
I love this game because it’s usually really funny or sweet and it’s also a great way to get to know more about the couple. Chances are not all the guests will have been around when they met and some may not know the groom that well.
If you want to turn this into a drinking game (and who doesn’t), have the bride drink when she gets an answer wrong and all the guests drink when she gets one right!
Here’s a sample list of questions I’ve used in the past:
Where did you two first meet?
What was your first official date?
When is your anniversary?
