AWESOME Bachelorette slumber party game ideas

I’ve also created this list of fun bachelorette party ideas for games you can play!

1, Truth or Dare: This classic game never gets old. Prepare a mix of fun and daring questions and challenges, and take turns drawing cards or rolling dice to decide who goes next.

3, Bridal Bingo: Customize bingo cards with wedding-related words or phrases (e.g., bride, groom, ring, vows). As the bride opens gifts, guests mark off the corresponding words on their cards. The first to complete a row shouts “Bingo!” and wins a prize.

4, Memory Lane: Have each guest write down a memorable or funny story involving the bride or groom. Then, read them aloud, and try to guess who the story is about.

5, Wedding Pictionary: Play a wedding-themed version of Pictionary. Create a list of wedding-related words or phrases for guests to draw, and divide into teams.

6, Wedding Charades: Similar to Pictionary, guests act out wedding-related words or scenarios without speaking, and their team tries to guess what they’re portraying.

7, Mad Libs Wedding Vows: Create humorous or heartfelt Mad Libs-style wedding vows, and have guests fill in the blanks with their own words. Share the results for laughs

Bachelorette sleepover customised pajama ideas

One of the cutest things to do at a bachelorette party is to get everyone matching outfits! You can either customise pajamas or use the bachelorette party to have everyone decorate a cotton dressing gown for wedding prep day. You can customise plain pajama sets in loads of ways!

Here we have curated a list of our best ideas:

1, Blank Pajama Set Painting: Purchase plain, matching pajama sets for everyone in the group. You can choose cozy flannel or cotton sets in a color or pattern that suits the theme. Provide fabric paint, fabric markers, and stencils for guests to personalize their pajamas. They can paint or draw fun designs, quotes, or inside jokes related to the bride or the group.

2, Tie-Dye Pajamas: Set up a tie-dye station with plain white pajama sets or t-shirts. Guests can choose their favorite tie-dye colors and create unique patterns on their sleepwear. If everyone uses a similar colour palette all these creations will be perfect complements!

3, Iron-On Transfers: Purchase iron-on transfer sheets with fun designs or quotes related to the bachelorette party or the bride. Guests can follow the instructions to iron these transfers onto their pajama sets for a quick and easy DIY project. This can lead to very nicely curated and high-end sets, especially for those who don’t consider themselves creative. You can buy pretty designs like flowers and artworks, or the bride could get custom wedding designs printed!

4, Sleep Mask Decorating: For a shorter task, rather than decorating pajamas, you can decorate sleep masks and be able to wear them immediately that night! Offer plain sleep masks, fabric paint, sequins, rhinestones, and glue for guests to decorate their own sleep masks. This DIY activity is both practical and stylish.

5, Lace and Ribbon Embellishments: Provide lace, ribbon, and fabric glue for guests to add delicate embellishments to their pajama sets. They can create lace trims, ribbon bows, or other decorative touches.

6, Matching Headbands or Scrunchies: Another idea as well as pajamas, or instead of if you want a shorter project, is to provide materials for guests to create matching headbands or scrunchies. These accessories can complement their sleepwear.

7, Fashion Show: Once everyone has completed their DIY pajama or sleepwear creations, have a fashion show where each guest models their personalized sleepwear. It’s a fun way to showcase your creativity and celebrate the finished products. Especially if this is the last time you’ll have a girls’ for a while, it’s great to add some flare!
