My lovely stepsister is getting married so my sister, the Maid of Honour, and I scoured the internet in search of bachelorette scavenger hunt ideas. Thank you to all the creative souls scattered across the Internet who came up these ideas! We just collected the ones that suit us and put them together in a pretty package.
Winery Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt
We wanted a mix of risqué and tame so that there would be something for everyone’s comfort level! Anyone who knows me will also know that my comfort level is extremely low 😉 It’s nice to have a bit of everything so that everyone going will be able to participate.
Here’s how I did it:
- Pick a poster or menu in Canva that has a pretty background and delete all the text (unless you think you can make it work but I wasted too much time trying)
- Come up with a snazzy title and fiddle with fonts for half an hour until you can’t tell the difference between various trendy cursive fonts
- Decide what your rules are going to be and how the teams will be divided. It’s easier if the rules and instructions are all in one place at the very beginning – no disagreements or confusion! I just used a plain text box
- Decide what to include and make a text box for the list. Here’s this handy little box you can copy and paste into your list text box for the points rather than trying to size Canva image boxes and line them up properly like I was doing at first: □
- Do a print test to make sure it still looks good in black & white. I only handed out 3 so I went with colour. I thought they’d be less likely to get lost if each team only had one checklist
There’s an ‘official’ wedding hashtag we could have included but you may want to exercise caution when deciding whether to use it for the bachelorette! We weren’t sure if the bride would mind potentially inappropriate pictures making it into that hashtag so we went with #ditchthemiss – easy to type if drinking happens to be involved as well. There’s a bachelorette hashtag generator we were playing with that’s actually pretty good, if you want something more personalized.
You can see what I used in Canva exactly and use it as your template here. I liked that Canva makes it really easy to have an image AND a pdf so if you had a Facebook event group or something like that, you could post it there as well.
If you don’t have time to make your own, here’s a pdf of my version but with a generic title: Winery Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt
Bonus: here’s some of the pictures from our scavenger hunt 😉
I used a menu in Canva called Coral and Yellow Vector Ring Wedding Menu for our schedule. It already has a wedding theme and it doesn’t have columns so it’s easy to modify for a schedule! We tried to include answers to questions that were likely to come up so that they’d all be in one place for reference. I should have included hotel parking information but anything like times, addresses, names, and estimated costs are handy! We didn’t expect to follow the schedule fully but it was nice to have guidelines so everyone knew roughly what to expect.

if you’d like. If you’re editing a different menu, I ungrouped the text elements so that I could copy and paste the text boxes I needed for extra items.
The Maid of Honour made these adorable hangover kits for us! She found the perfect bags on Etsy and inside they have: advil, mints, lip balm, an energy vitamin packet, and a granola bar tied around a water. Everything you need for the morning after! I did custom lip balms in honour of the bachelorette for the kits.
One of the Bridesmaids put together a lunch bag of fruit and baked goodies to snack on in between wineries and everyone was super thankful to have a bit of food!
I guess no Bachelorette is complete without some penis-related paraphernalia thrown in so we had straws, temporary tattoos, and a banner (that we couldn’t use because I forgot tape)
If you’re lazy like me and like to just order from Amazon, we were pretty happy with everything. Here’s what we got:
