How to choose the right game

If you find the list of hen party games above a bit dizzying, then we recommend you ask yourself these questions to make sure you choose a game that best suits the bride-to-be and the whole hen group! That’ll help you make your choice more easily.

  1. What kind of person is the bride? Would she enjoy something naughty or is she the classy type?
  2. Do you want to include anything embarrassing? We generally recommend to avoid this but you know the bride best.
  3. How old are the members of your hen do group? If Nana is attending, then maybe avoid the naughty games and penis sculpting (depending how cheeky she is 😂).
  4. How many ladies are there in your group? Make sure your game choice is practical for the size.
  5. Do all the girls in your hen group know each other? If not, you could consider some icebreaker games to help people feel more comfortable.
  6. Where will you play the game? Are you hosting a hen party at home, planning a virtual hen party or will you need a room in your accommodation?
  7. Do you want to play a hen party game that matches your chosen hen do theme?
  8. Will you DIY your hen game materials (e.g. activity sheets) or buy some?

DIY or purchased?

There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to whether you should create your own hen party game materials or if you should buy them. It really comes down to:

  • your budget
  • how much time you can dedicate
  • whether you have other people to help
  • whether you’re going for the homemade feel or a more polished look

If you’re keen on the DIY option, you can use free online tools like Canva to build beautiful looking documents and materials and download them for free. So, making things yourself doesn’t have to be expensive!

If you do decide to buy some games, consider whether you’d like to purchase digital documents that you can print yourself at home or for a virtual hen party. Or, if you’d like a physical game delivered to your front door.
