AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
A hen party game like this will only work if you’re out in public, as it involves your bride-to-be chatting with strangers. So, if you're planning on heading out and about for your besties festivities, read on!
HOW TO PLAY
THE ALL IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
To play, you will need: The worst photo you can possibly find of your bride-to-be’s partner.
Before the party, find the worst photo you can of your beautiful hen’s soon-to-be husband (or wife!). It can be when he was surprised, very drunk, just waking up, generally looking weird, etc. Whatever you decide to go with, make sure it’s BAD and/or HILARIOUS!
Print this picture off and have your bride-to-be carry it around with her for the duration of her celebration.
Why, you may ask?
Because every time a code-word is mentioned by a member of your group (‘Man, I’m itchy!’, for example), your bride-to-be must go over to the nearest stranger, show them the photo of her partner and proudly tell them how excited she is to be marrying him.
Can she get through it with a straight face?
FUN LITTLE EXTRAS THAT WORK WITH THIS HEN PARTY GAME!
WHY SO SERIOUS?
If your bride-to-be is able to talk about marrying her partner without cracking a smile or bursting out laughing, she deserves a special prize! This could be anything from an actual gift (such as a piece of her favourite chocolate) to having the guest who yelled out the code-word buying her a drink (as a reward for her wonderful acting skills, of course!).
You know that hideous picture you found of your hen’s partner? Print off as many copies as there are guests attending the party and hand them out via goodie bags or as people arrive at the venue (just make sure your hen doesn’t notice). When the codeword is called out, surprise your bride-to-be by having EVERYONE put these photos in front of their faces whilst she’s talking to the passing stranger! There’s no way she’ll be able to keep a straight face.
CAPTURE THE LOVE
There are some photo ops that just can't be missed... especially when you have a large, hideous picture of the groom to play with!
Capture funny moments throughout the party by having your bride-to-be photographed with her "groom" (i.e. a guest holding the groom's photo in front of their face). ‘Photo Groom’ could be proposing, having a drink with his bride-to-be, dancing up a storm, etc. These pictures will make great mementos for years to come!
Want a bit more of a challenge? Assign each guest a scenario that they have to re-enact as the "groom" with the bride-to-be! Some examples include ‘First Date’, ‘Honeymoon’, ‘We’re Pregnant!’, etc.
