Hen Party Ideas – Mr And Mrs Quiz

15/04/2014 |

Getting Married Abroad Blog


Planning a hen party is the most fun part of being a bridesmaid and girlie games are usually a popular part of any bridal shower. If you have a bride-to-be soiree to organise then a classic ‘Mr and Mrs Quiz’ always goes down a treat.


So, here’s some question suggestions to get you started with planning this quick-fire quiz.

Replace the ‘bride-to-be’ and ‘groom-to-be’ with the actual names of the couple and send the questions to the groom-to-be to answer. At the hen-party, gather the girls around and see how many of the answers the groom gave, that the bride-to-be can get right. Maybe you can arrange a forfeit for every question she gets wrong!

Jen Leslie Events:

“Perfectly coordinated by Jen Leslie Events and beautifully captured by Tonie Christine Photography, this Anthropology-inspired shoot shows off the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest with a romantic, feminine touch. Portraying a bridal luncheon, all the little details compliment springtime in Seattle – a time that can still be chilly but blossoms are beginning to reappear promising better weather to come. So tea was served to warm the guests, alongside berries and lemonade.”


“Hosted at The Corson Building the simplicity of the space was brought to life with gorgeous bouquets from Columbia City Bouquet that elegantly combined soft pinks with the grit of ferns – true NW greenery.”
