Clean Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt

Keeping your bachelorette scavenger hunt clean is a safe bet. This is an especially attractive option when mothers, sisters, and other potentially sensitive people are participating.

This is a great option when the party is taking place at home, a restaurant, or other public spaces where you’ll want to avoid embarrassment.

  • Acquire a souvenir from where the engaged couple had their first date
  • Make a homemade veil for the bride with arts and crafts items
  • Correctly answer a series of “trivia” questions about the bride or bride & groom
  • Compose the bride’s vows for her. She chooses the ones she likes the best.
  • Find “Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” for the bride
  • A photo of the location where the groom proposed or where they shared the first kiss

Dirty Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt

Naughty bachelorette scavenger hunts should be reserved for groups of people who know each other well. Depending on the items/actions on your list, you may want to pair this option with a specific location.

Be conscious of being overly sexual or requiring too much physicality. This almost always results in problems.

  • “Tattoo” a stranger’s chest with your name using a pen
  • Get a guy’s phone number
  • Receive a lap dance from a bartender
  • Take a shot from a stranger’s belly button
  • Pose for a selfie with a shirtless man
  • Get a kiss from a guy with a mustache

Las Vegas Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt

Las Vegas is a world-famous destination with a lot to offer. Whether it’s your first time visiting or a place you’ve visited before, there’s always something new to discover. A Las Vegas scavenger hunt is a fun way to discover the city. Most items in Vegas aren’t exactly things that you can pick up and bring back to your group, so it’s best to make this a photo scavenger hunt. When choosing your treasures, make sure that they can’t all be collected in a single location. This keeps things exciting.

  • Selfie with a showgirl
  • A photo of a famous landmark like the scale model of the Eiffel Tower or the MGM Lion statue
  • A picture of or with an Elvis impersonator
  • Jumping into a water fountain (this could be illegal, so you didn’t hear it from us)
  • Get a piggyback ride from a stranger
  • A photo with another bride or bridesmaid
  • Convince a random guy to post a picture of you to his SnapChat
  • Partake in one of the many thrill rides like roller coasters or zip-lines
  • A “Golden Nugget” casino chip

Bachelorette Bar Scavenger Hunt

There’s a lot you can hunt for at a bar. If you’re hosting your bachelorette party scavenger hunt make sure that you are aware of what type of establishment it is when making your list. A classy destination probably won’t have darts laying around.

  • Find a coin with the bride’s birth year
  • Have the bartender create a special drink for the bride. The team with the best drink (judged by the bride) wins.
  • Ask married couples in the bar to give you marriage advice (have them write it on a napkin, the team with the most napkins wins).
  • Get a “souvenir” from each bar signed by the bartender or bouncer (ie: Cocktail napkin, coaster, business card)
  • At a karaoke bar, dedicate a song to the bride, have some record it and let her judge them to choose a winner
  • Toast the bride and let her choose the best toast

Bachelorette Beach Scavenger Hunt

Hosting a bachelorette scavenger hunt at the beach has a lot of potential. You could go with the modest route. Or, you could let loose and choose to be naughty.

If you do go with the naughty option, make sure that you don’t go beyond your party’s comfort zones. You’ll also want to consider the specific beach you are going to. Some beaches will have a lot of families that you’ll want to respect. Depending on the treasures you seek, you may have to base the “winner” on how creative they are or how much of the item they find.

In both cases, a day on the beach requires preparation. Bring plenty of water, food, and protection from the sun.

  • Collect the most interesting or the largest amount of seashells
  • Get a picture on a jet ski
  • Convince a stranger to give you their sunglasses
  • Take a picture with a stranger’s dog
  • Convince a stranger to share their food

Disney Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt

Disney is a popular destination for many bachelorette parties across the country. The only problem with creating a bachelorette scavenger hunt list. There’s just too much to choose from!
You’ll want to keep the team together. Rather than letting everyone run loose trying to find their items, plan a route.

  • Picture of the bride with her favorite Disney character
  • Group shot in front of Cinderella’s Castle
  • Staged group photo on the Tower of Terror
  • Picture of the bride with ice cream all over her face
  • Picture of the bride kissing Mickey Mouse
  • Group shot with Mickey and Minnie
  • Photo of a Disney character “proposing” to the bride
  • Group selfie of everyone wearing Mickey Mouse ears

To make the most of your bachelorette scavenger hunt, plan ahead. Consider the location of your hunt to make sure that all items are findable. Mix up the difficulty level so that the hunt is both challenging and achievable. Consider the abilities and limitations of your group.
Lastly, don’t take it too seriously. Winning is fun but it’s the experience that counts most.
