Clean and Classy Hen Party Games
Mr & Mrs
Mr & Mrs is one of the best hen party games, in fact, some may say you can’t possibly have a hen do without a game of Mr & Mrs.
Challenge the bride by asking her questions about her partner and their relationship.
Make sure you get the bride’s other half to answer the questions first and match them with the bride’s own. Or, ask her partner to record themselves answering the questions – this makes it even more fun!
Make sure everyone is involved by giving each person at the party a question to ask the bride, as well as coming up with a forfeit for the bride if she gets the answer wrong. Forfeits can be taking a drink or doing a dare.
Download Confetti’s Mr and Mrs printable hen party game to play. We’ve separated the game into sections so you can leave out any questions that might make the bride cringe in front of her Grandma!
These gorgeous personalised wine glasses are perfect for hen do drinking games. You’ll never get your drinks mixed up again!
Now it’s time to test the bride to understand how well she knows her hens.
In this game, everyone writes down a fact about themselves and the bride has to guess whose fact belongs to who. The facts can be simple or difficult, and you can play this game a couple of times depending on the size of the group.
A fun way to do this is by having everyone in the bridal party writing their fact on a piece of paper before folding the facts up and putting them in a hat before having each hen pick one out.
Have the bride give each piece of paper back to her hens before revealing the truth. Oh, and of course, the bride must do a forfeit for each wrong guess.
Pass the Balloon
This fun hen party activity doesn’t involve drinking, so after some of the heavy-drinking games, it’s likely your party will be relieved to play this one.
Blow up two balloons and divide the party into two teams. Have each team arrange into two rows and have team members pass the balloons up each line without using their hands. The first team to get their balloon to the end wins!
Golden rule: if any team member drops or pops the balloon, they must start again.
These large white balloons reading ‘let’s party’ are available on the Confetti shop. They make fab decorations too!
Who am I?
This is one of the best after-dinner hen party games, it also works really well at spa hen parties.
Have each guest write the name of a celebrity on a Post-It note and then create a pile of the completed notes in the centre of the table. Everyone must then take a sticky note and, without looking, pop it on their foreheads.
Each person has the opportunity to ask up to 20 ‘yes or no’ questions in order to guess their new identity. If you manage to guess correctly, you win!
Fun hint: write down the name of the bride or groom – they’re basically celebs!
A Trip Down Memory Lane
This is one of the cutest hen party games.
Ask everyone in the group to bring a present for the bride that will remind her of a memory they share with her. The presents don’t need to be expensive, they could be anything from food to tickets or clothes.
The presents are then put in a sack and opened one by one and the bride needs to match the present to the person. It’s like a Secret Santa where the bride gets all the gifts!
Hen Party Pictionary
A hen party favourite, and one that involves no planning at all, besides getting your hands on one of these hen party Pictionary games by Not on the High Street.
This mini game of Pictionary is the perfect after-dinner hen party activity to play around the dinner table.
Clean, mixed or explicit versions of this game are available, so take your pick!
Advice for the Bride
Advice cards are a great wedding tradition whereby guests can leave advice for the happy couple that they can read after their big day, but why not turn advice cards into a fun hen party game?
Give an advice card to each hen in the party and ask them to write down funny advice that’s personal to the couple. The bride can then read the advice cards out to the group – it’s almost like the bride’s very own version of Cards Against Humanity!
You can buy cute advice cards on the Confetti shop.
Hen Party Drinking Games
These hen party games are ideal for the hens planning for a wild one. Complete any hen party drinking game with these hen party accessories.
Hen Do Dares
Print out Confetti’s Hen Do Dares PDF and take it (and a pen!) out with you. You can either print one copy and designate the dares to different people in your party or take a print out each and try and tick as many off as possible.
Either way, the person to complete the most dares, wins!
Gin and Fizz Pong
Calling all gin and prosecco lovers! This is the hen party activity for you.
Following the same rules as the original beer-based game, beer pong, split the group into two teams, fill your cups, and throw table tennis balls into the opponent’s cups. If you manage to score, a member of the opposing team must drink the contents of the cup.
Whilst this game does traditionally involve drinking alcohol, any opponents avoiding alcohol can still join in and designate their cups to a friend… and of course we recommend you nominate the bride.

Banned Words is one of our favourite free hen party games. The game is simple: create a list of words with that you think everyone around the table will struggle not to say. Great words to ban are: people’s names, swear words, and ‘drink’.
Once you’ve decided on the words, think of penalties for saying forbidden words. This could be doing a dare, telling a truth or doing a shot.
Why not get these cute personalised shot glasses for the hen do? They make the best hen do presents!
Hen Do Bingo
If you’re looking for one of the more competitive hen party games, play Hen Party Bingo when getting ready or drinking before you head out for the night.
Print copies of Confetti’s blank bingo sheets – enough for one for each guest. Fill in each square with things you think will happen at pre-drinks and when they occur, cross them out. The first person to get five in a row, wins!
A top tip for filling in your sheet: think about habits people in the group have, for example, ‘Sarah burps’, or ‘Alex swears’.
