Your bachelorette party is you, your friend, or loved one’s last big night out as a single lady before tying the knot. So, you want to make sure it’s a night you’ll never forget!

One of the best ways to get everyone in the spirit of celebrating the upcoming wedding is with a game that will last for the entirety of your big night out.

A bachelorette party scavenger hunt is a fantastic way to reminisce with your bridesmaids all while having one crazy night out.

If you’re getting ready to walk down the aisle and are looking for the perfect activity for their bachelorette party, we can help.

Here’s everything you need to know about putting together a scavenger hunt you’ll never forget!

How to Create a Bachelorette Party Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt is a game that involves following clues or a list to find and collect items to reach a prize.

Because scavenger hunts can consist of anything, the possibilities for your game are endless. There are a few things you must have, however, for your game to be a success.

You need to have someone or a group of people hunting for things, a list of things they need to gather or find, and, finally, a prize for completing their quest.

Outside of those few vital elements, your scavenger hunt can be whatever you want it to be. Here are a few guidelines to help you start planning yours:

Who’s Playing?

The first thing you need to do when planning a bachelorette party scavenger hunt is to decide who’s going to be competing in the game.

A bachelorette party is a special event for a bride-to-be. So, having the bride as the sole player may seem like the best and only option.

Scavenger hunts can also be a group activity. By having everyone working together, you can cut down on competition and guarantee that everyone is working together to have a good time.

That said, there’s nothing wrong with a little friendly rivalry. One other option is to give each of the bridesmaids a list of what they’re supposed to collect and let the bride decide who the winner is at the end of the night.

The key is to decide who is going to be scavenging beforehand, so you can create the list with that person in mind.

Location is Everything

Say your scavenger hunt consists of the bride tracking down a series of complicated drinks. If you’re planning on having the party in a quaint bed and breakfast, your game is going to be a bust.

You need to plan out your scavenger hunt with your location in mind. If you can’t find the items on your list in the area that you’re in, then there’s no point in trying to play at all.

Also, if the bachelorette party is in an area that has a lot of history for the bride, try to incorporate some of that information in the hunt.

Write Out the Rules

Are bridesmaids allowed to help the bride find everything on her list? Can you tell someone you’re doing a scavenger hunt to get one of the things from the list?

A scavenger hunt, even one at a bachelorette party, is a game, and games need rules.

Before you choose what people are going to be looking for, decide if you want to implement any rules and what those should be. Adding a couple of restrictions to your game can up the difficulty and make it more fun for those playing.

Make Your List!

Now it’s time to decide what you’re going to be scavenging.

If your goal for the evening is to drink as much as you can, then that should be the subject of your hunt.

Come up with a list of various drinks and cocktails that the bride needs to find and enjoy over the evening. These drinks can range from getting a stranger to buy you a shot to drinking a flaming cocktail.

Just remember that the point of the evening is to have fun, so don’t add any drinks to the list that the bride might night enjoy.

If you want to go light on the alcohol, then you may want to try a photo hunt instead. Create a list of things the bride or bridesmaids need to do or find and collect pictures throughout the night.

The best part about a photo hunt is that you can then use those pictures to create a scrapbook or photo album the bride will be able to cherish for years to come.

When deciding on what items the bride will need to collect it’s important to remember the goal of the evening is to have fun.

So, don’t include anything that is so difficult, dangerous, or embarrassing that it sucks the fun out of the night.

Come Up With A Prize

Did your bride or bridesmaids find everything on their list?

At the end of a long scavenger hunt, there should be a reward! Decorate a sash or a wine glass to commemorate the event. Or, stock up on a few bottles of champagne you can pop to celebrate reaching the end of the list.

No matter what your prize is, it’s vital to have something extra special waiting at the end for the entire bridal party to enjoy.

Time to Get Scavaging!

Bachelorette parties are fun, crazy events that can spawn memories that a bride will cherish for the rest of their life.

Planning out big events or activities can be fun. That said the real goal of a bachelorette party should be to celebrate with your closest friends before starting the next chapter of your life.
