There are so
many bachlorette party ideas to choose from when planning
your friend's party! Below I have listed some of the more
popular bachlorette party planning ideas to help make your
party a success:
Mild or Wild
- It is first important to know if the bachelorette wants a
conservative party or one that is more scandalous! Always
remember when planning a bachlorette party that it is the
bride-to-be's day and should not be all about the
bridesmaids! I have categorized each bachlorette party idea
by a thermometer reading on how "hot" or "mild" the idea is.
- Another important aspect of the bachlorette party is who
is going to contribute to the party as well as if the girls
can afford the ideas you choose for the party. It would make
sense to have a weekend getaway with airfare and hotel rooms
for those who have some money while those girls who may not
be financially set would rather do a local party at
someone's house or at a near-by restaurant bar which can be
just as fun! Make sure whatever is planned is affordable for
1) A Day At
The Spa - A great idea is to take the bachelorettes to
get pampered at a local Spa or one that makes a great
weekend get-away. Check out our partner at SpaWish who can
help you choose the best spa in the US. Spas can be a great
place for relaxation before the wedding as well as a way to
keep all the girls together for some great girl-talk that
will build memories of a lifetime!
2) Dining Out
- Take the bachlorette out to her favorite restaurant or
type of food! Have some of the bride-to-be's friends get
their early and decorate the table with festive bachelorette
party items. A great way to keep the gals together while
toasting every few minutes with some funny bachelorette
roasts as well as some sentimental moments.
Dancer - If the bachlorette is a good sport, hire a
professional male dancer to come and give a little
pre-wedding show to the bride-to-be. Make sure to choose a
male dancer who is on the level of the bachelorette since
they range from mild to wild. It is also fun to have them
dress up in cute police, firemen, or military outfits and
strut their stuff as they remove their uniforms!
- If the bachlorette likes the bar scene, it is great to
have you and the girls get limos, taxis, or have sober
drivers and go to the favorite bar of choice! Dress the
bachelorette up in fun garb with a veil, flashing ring, etc.
If you are in an area that has multiple bars, go bar hopping
and let loose with the girls! It is also great to go with a
theme, dressing up in all black with the bride in white.
Just make sure not to get the bachlorette too drunk since
you want her remembering the evening!
5) Home Party
- One of the best ways to have a great party that is
economical is to have the bachlorette and her friends go to
one of the bridesmaid's houses for the bachlorette party .
There, you can decorate the house in cute bachelorette party
decorations as well as play bachlorette party games with the
other bridesmaids. A home party is nice since everyone is
hanging together, unlike what happens at away-trips. Home
parties can also be more warm and sentimental since all the
girls are together and less distracted by other
non-bachlorette party things.
Party - One of the biggest crazes lately is having a
passion party which is also usually at someone's house. A
passion party is where a consultant comes to the house and
shows some toys and items you usually would not see in a
party favor bag :) There are many passion party consultants
who do this nationwide.
Teller - Have fun by going to a fortune teller or terror
card reading session with the girls. Only ask them questions
that you would like to hear about and enjoy the fun finding
which girls are going to have 8 kids, marry a gazillionair
(or become one), and have eternal happiness! Sure for a good
time at the bachlorette party!
8) Theater or
Concert with the Girls - For a more planned and formal
evening, plan for you and the girls go to your favorite
play, sporting event or rock out to a concert of your
choice. There are always many to choose from. Although they
can be a little costly, check with all the girls planning to
go to the bachelorette party as well as the Bachlorette
Instructor for Exotic Dance Lessons - Bring in a
professional that can teach the girls how to dance for their
husbands, boyfriends or friends. Memories of a lifetime from
having a class taught to the bachelorette. There are also
videos that teach dance which can be shown at a house party
or in a limousine while waiting to go to the next
bachlorette party stop!
Gettaway - Nothing is more fun than all going on a
weekend cruise to any destination.
No matter what
you decide to do for the bachelorette party, just remember
to check with the Bride-to-Be first as well as getting
feedback from some of the other girls so most are happy with
what is planned. Expense and how conservative that
bachelorette party will be are other aspects to take into
consideration prior to the event planning. I hope you have a
great time and that my bachlorette party ideas are helpful.
