AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
With cameras in everyone’s pockets these days, photo evidence of celebrations (whether you want it or not!) is almost guaranteed. And because of this, there will be an abundance of great (and not so great) pictures that the bride can look back on; remembering the fun she had with her best gal pals only weeks before marrying the man of her dreams.
However... how are you going to get your hands on these pictures following the party?
Thanks to hens games such as ‘Snap That’, getting hold of these piccies will be a breeze! The best part? A version of this game can also be played at the wedding!
See below for instructions.
HOW TO PLAY 'SNAP THAT'
YOU WILL NEED:
Your guests and their camera phones, a Facebook group that includes all guests, and a printed photo checklist.
Before the hen party, type up a checklist that includes different portrait and group shot items. For example, each guest is to capture the following:
Handy Hint: Make everyone's checklist different and stick to a max of 10 items. This way you'll get a variety of photos and guests won't be glued to their phones for the entire party!
When guests arrive on the big day, hand each of them a checklist (or direct them to one, main checklist displayed at your event) and ask that they capture as many items as possible – with the person who ticks off the most being the winner.
This will ensure you get a heap of fun photos for your bride-to-be to look back on. But how will she get a hold of them?
There are two ways you can do this:
HENS GAMES LIKE THIS CAN BE PLAYED IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE
ADD SOME MOVEMENT
Rather than just capturing still shots, consider adding items to the list that involve video. For example, ‘take a video of the hen doing a ridiculous dance’.
Don’t like the idea of a Facebook group, or the girls are more into Instagram? Make a special #hashtag for the celebration and ask that guests use it when uploading their pictures. This will make it easy for your hen to find ALL of the hilarious photos from her special day!
UP THE ANTE
You could incorporate this game into a scavenger hunt, meaning hen party dares such as ‘Get a photo of the bride with a bar tender’ could be added to the list. Doing so will mean you’ll have many more hilarious photo ops (and as a result, so much more to laugh at for years to come)!
