hanmade Henparty!

My sister is getting married at the end of the month (very exciting) so I planned a henparty for her.
We played lots of games, dressed the bride to be up, ate lovely food, more games, gave her pants and gifts, had takeaway, more games and then dressed up in our Hawian outfits and went to a hawian bar for cocktails.
It was a great time. Its great to have lots of fun and giggles together.

Of course we dressed her up as a bride! We then went to the park to play some games!

I thought I eould write about it including some of the games we played as some people have asked what we played. So here you go....

Two Truths and a Lie
This is a great icebreaker for guests who are just getting to know each other. Each guest tells the group three experiences he or she has had with the bride or groom; two are true, one is a lie. Guests then guess which one they think is a lie. Often, the most unbelievable stories are the truth!
Strawberry laces
Get into pairs and eat a strawberry lace without using your hands. Repeat to find the winner of the group.

Bridal Pictionary
This game is far from picture-perfect, but that’s half the fun! To get started, you’ll need a large pad of paper or a dry erase board, markers, slips of paper and a bowl. Write down common wedding-related sayings on each slip of paper and place in the bowl. Here are some great examples: “going to the chapel,” “wedded bliss,” and “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” Then, divide the guests into two teams. Each team—and team member—takes turns pulling a piece of paper from the bowl. The person who pulls must be the artist for that round. He or she draws the image (without writing words or letters) within a 60-second time limit. If the artist’s team doesn’t guess the correct answer, the other team gets a shot. The team who guesses the most sayings correctly wins.
Handbag game
Everyone holds their own handbag on the lap. Choose a letter of the alphabet, say it out loud, the first person to say and show something from their handbag beginning with that letter wins.

Toilet paper dress
Using toilet paper in two teams make the best wedding dress in 4 minutes

Everyone write down something nice about the bride. Fold and put in a container. One person read each one out. The bride has to guess who wrote it and then 'snaps for ..... (name the bride) Its just nice to hear lovely things.

20 Questions
Ask the groom 20 quesations for him to answer before hand. On the day get your bride to answer the questions as he answered them. So funny, particuarly if you ask personal questions!

Give everyone a pen and piece of paper. The idea is you are making up a story. Each time you finish a sentance fold the piece of paper over and pass it on to the next person. And repeat the stages. Get everyone to write down:
Where they met
What he said
What she said
What happened
And a consequence
this is a brilliant game with lots of laughs. Encourage sillyness and creativity.

Who will do what!
Guess who the bride thinks will do the following things around the house when she is married:


Clean the bathroom


Take the rubbish out

Pay the bills

Write greetings cards

Food shopping


Wash the car

Cut the grass

Clean the windows

Be the main driver

Wrap presents

Order takeout
