Head out to an 80"s night at a bar or club, then return home to watch some 80's classic movies (Sixteen Candles and Breakfast Club?).
Make things mysterious by wearing sexy masks! Life's a little more fun when no one knows who you are. Your group will stand out at bars and clubs, but no one will know your true identity! (Which could be helpful if the Bride and Bachelorettes want to get crazy). Once you get out of the town, you will find that the girls will let their guard down a bit more when no one knows who they are. Which makes this a great party idea for parties that are concerned about that. Once everyone is loosened up, plan to play some fun bachelorette party games (most can be played while at a bar or restaurant!) and don't forget to snap lots of pictures - your group is going to look amazing!.<

Get the Bride a bridal tiara fit for a Queen, and even give tiaras to the guests as a pretty party favor! Choose a luxury Bride Sash for the Bride to wear over her dress. You can even get matching sashes to call out the Maid of honor and Bridesmaids in your group. Have a limo pick up your princesses and head to a luxury location for tea, or better yet, take your group to Disney for a royal photo shoot in front of a castle and some fun rides! Either way, it will be a day the Princess Bride will always remember.
Get naughty with a nautical theme! Spend a day by the water with your closest friends. When putting together this theme, think classic anchors, sailor stripes and crisp navy blue. You can rent a boat, hang at the pool or beach or go out for a nice seafood dinner followed by a pub crawl. Give each part-goer a matching Koozie as a party favor (no glass on the boat or by the pool)! Before your crew embarks on the water, be sure to bring everything you need to keep the party going. Lots of drinks, tunes, and a fun bachelorette game. The Bride also needs a large Bride Tote bag to haul all of her goodies around. This bachelorette idea is perfect for any bride getting married near water!
Bowling = Fun shoes + beer and bar food + tons of laughter! The great thing about this party idea is that you can do it almost anywhere in the country, in any size town! Just because bowling is made out to be not so glamorous, doesn't mean your party can't be! Cover the tables in hot pink table covers, and silly bachelorette tableware. Take along a bachelorette game like a dare checklist or hottie hunt stickers to make a night out bowling even more fun! Some bowling alleys also have special nights where they turn down the lights and bring in a DJ (Think Glow Bowling). If you are glow bowling, choose glow items as a fun bachelorette favorto wear. Check with the locations near you to plan the perfect night.

Plus, the Bride will LOVE to strut her stuff on the town is this theme! Keep the flock together with a pink feather boa party favor for everyone! The pink feathers will make each other easy to find in the crowd!
Piano bars are Bachelorette Party Central! Many offer special treatment (like a raunchy serenade) for the Bride and bachelorettes. This option is good for Brides that want to invite family members to the party. Encourage the Bride to wear all white with a contrasting Bride sashso she stands out in the crowd as the guest of honor. Decorate your table at the piano bar with a funny centerpiece and some confetti. Some cute party favor ideas would be these fun Bachelorette Buttons and the classy red lipstick pens. Check with your local piano bar for special nights and bachelorette party packages available.
Host a wine tasting in your home (have everyone bring their favorite bottle and a food pairing for it), or go to a wine tasting or two near you! Pick up special bridal wine glasses as a party favor and keepsake for after the event. Get special glasses for the Maid of Honor, Bridesmaids. and of course the Bride herself. Have each guest bring information about their wine (and food paring) to share with the group. Make sure you taste the wines in order (ending with dessert wines or a pairing with chocolate). Also, make certain you have a designated driver for the way back home, whether it's uber, a groomsman or you go all out and hire a limo!
Who says you need a destination? Have your party in the limo or party bus while it takes you wherever you'd like to go. Some party busses even have a "stripper" pole or dance floor! Bring champagne and feel like a star as you drive around your town. Usually glassware would be provided, but if not plan to bring bachelorette glasses for everyone. To ensure you ride in style, we recommend decorating the car or bus. But make sure to check with your limo company first for rules regarding decor and food. Check out these tips on renting a limo for your bachelorette party!
The perfect bachelorette party idea for a bride to be who is really a tomb boy at heart. Go to a thrift store and find the most ridiculous old bridesmaid and wedding dresses you can, then wear them paint balling! You'll want to have a photographer there to take pics of the ridiculousness. Just make sure you leave enough time before the wedding for bruises to heal. Show up looking fierce by rocking matching temporary tattoos. Paint balling is also a fantastic idea for a coed bachelor/bachelorette party. After the paint balling, head to a bar together to look at the photos and toast the Bride and the winning team!
If you're Bride is the wild type, celebrate your bachelorette party at a strip club! Buy the bride-to-be a lap dance and make sure everyone's decked out in naughty attire! Before heading out, have a few drinks at home to get everyone ready for the fun. Things are definitely going to get dirty so don't be caught without your bachelorette hand sanitizer party favors! Be sure to bring lots of ones for yourself and extra for the Bride. She is going to need a lot to "make it rain" at the club!
Before you choose this bachelorette idea, make sure the Bride (and Groom) is up for the activity, you don't want her getting in trouble with her fiancé right before the wedding! Once you get the OK, sit back and enjoy the show!
Go a bit classier by visiting a museum for your bachelorette party. Look for fun traveling exhibits in your area, or set up a private guided tour for your group. Pick one that peaks the interest of you and your party the most. Art? Science? Space? Whatever it may be, choose bachelorette party favors that fit the destination theme. Since museums tend to be a day-long activity, you'll need to bring along a lot of things. Store them in a Bride tote bag! End the night with a long dinner at the Bride's favorite restaurant talking about your favorite pieces and dissecting what it means about you.
If the bride is athletic, or wants to slim down to fit in her dress, sign her up for a marathon or fun run! The type of run will determine what you all should wear. If it is a fun or mud run, wear Bridal Tshirts and tutus to show your girly side while army crawling through the mud! We definitely recommend getting some Bridal Party Hoodies to keep you warmed up before the race! These are perfect for everyone in your group and not only will you look great while running, you will have fun souvenirs after the event! Make sure to reward yourselves and go out for a carb-filled dinner and some fun drinks after!
Drag Shows are also popular bachelorette party spots, and for good reason! They'll keep you entertained and laughing throughout the night. If it's clear you're there for a bachelorette party, they'll probably bring attention to you as well! In order to make it obvious, go all out on your dress-up and show up with fun bachelorette sashes or buttons!! Many shows serve cocktails, apps, or dinner during the event. The night is going to fly by, so we recommend keeping your camera handy to document the hilarious moments that, trust me, ARE going to happen! Check in with the drag show nearest you for more info!
Stay fit for the wedding by attending a workout class together! Ask the bride what her favorite work out is, or if there's one she's always wanted to try. Barre and Zumba are popular choices, but don't be afraid to go a bit more wild (see Bachelorette Idea 42 below!). Once you figure out the perfect class, make sure your party sweats in style. These bachelorette tank tops are super lightweight and are bare enough for you to work out freely. Another suggestion is to call and ask if they offer private sessions for the activity you've chosen. That way no one's embarrassed and you'll get the private attention you want! For private classes, as for songs that are favorites of the Bride to keep her extra motivated!
Pole Fitness is sexy, fun, and a genuine work out! Anyone (seriously, anyone! Even your grandma!) can pole dance and everyone will have a great time doing it! Many pole studios offer bachelorette party packages that include hour long private classes. Some classes will let you bring fun props like this neon fluffy boa! Don't push yourself too far, have fun with it, and embrace your sexiness!
Attend a spa and pamper yourself with spa services like massages and facials! You'll look and feel refreshed and relaxed for the wedding. Continue the spa-like feeling with goody bags for each party attendee filled with slippers, sleep masks, and nail files. This is a great Bachelorette party option if you want family members to attend. Be sure to call out your Bridal Party at the spa. Give the Bride a Bridal Hoodie or a silky Bride robe so she stands out too! Pedicures or manicures are usually the best option if you want to do services together as a group. Many salons can accommodate large arties with proper notice. Just be sure to book this type of party well in advance!
This kids' game is even more fun with your best girlfriends! Be sure to plan the truths and dares before the party. the more personal and thought out the better! Ask more grown-up or wedding-related truths and dares than you used to ask as a kid. Planning on celebrating at a bar? The possibilities for dares are endless! Incorporate talking to the guys or asking for specific drinks. Still not sure what to ask? Bring along a Bachelorette Dares Sheet printable or Bachelorette Dare Checklist printable to keep the night rolling. These printables are FREE with purchase and can be a great help to the hostess! Make sure everyone is sworn to secrecy because after all, what happens at the bachelorette party, stays at the bachelorette party!
Whether it's at a bar, in your home, or in a private Karaoke booth, Karaoke is a popular Bachelorette Party activity! (Whether or not you can actually sing!) Serenade the bride with her favorite nostalgic songs, and incorporate some classic bachelorette party hits. Before the party make a list of the Brides fave songs and ask guests to pick a song in advance and make a "routine". Ask guests to dress up for their performances too! Video each performance and after the party you can put them all together and give them to the Bride as a special gift. If in a home or private booth, ask special friends to share memories or toasts between performances to make it even more special.
Another popular Bachelorette Party activity, attending a fondue restaurant encourages everyone to get close (and allows you to indulge on cheese and chocolate!). Don't have a fondue place near you? Make your own fondue and ask everyone to bring something fun to dip! To dip in cheese we recommend bread, apples, potatoes, vegetables, and chicken. To dip in chocolate, we recommend pound cake, brownies, fruit, marshmallows, and pretzels. Add sparkly Wedding theme picks to pick up your food. Plan to use disposable bachelorette tableware for easy clean up for this messy, but delicious, night!
For a classier affair, host a tea party with a variety of teas, desserts, and finger sandwiches. Have everyone wear their tea party best (fancy hats and fascinators?), and dress up the tables with stunning table covers and fine china to look extra fancy. You can incorporate champagne or tea cocktails with the party, or keep it strictly tea and fruit infused water for non-drinkers! When picking a daytime cocktail, choose options like mimosas that are less strong and more fruity. Try playing some great bachelorette party ice breaker type games to get the bridal party more familiar with one another! Plan to play soft music, like the Brides favorite classical music, to add to the tranquil atmosphere.
Find out what's in store for the lucky couple (and who will be the next to get married!) by visiting a fortune teller or hiring one to come to your home or event space! Take turns getting your fortune told, and play bachelorette party games while your waiting your turn. After everyone has their fortune told, head out for dinner or dancing. Make sure you have lots of time to chat and share your predictions. Continue the theme with other fortune telling tools like Ouija Boards, Cootie Catchers, and MASH games! Have everyone shoot a video of themselves after their fortune is told, telling what the prediction was. Compile the videos as a gift for the Bride after the party. A year later, invite everyone to a party to watch the video and see what has actually happened!
Comedy Clubs are popular places for a bachelorette party and many of them will give a shout out to the Bride if you give them advance notice. Start your night off by watching a hilarious bachelorette party movie. Then make your way to a local comedy club for a night of fun. Give each guest a matching item (Shot glass? Feather boa? Sash?) to let everyone know your a group and to keep things interesting! Some comedy clubs can be a bit vulgar, so make sure that everyone is prepared for the content! A comedy club can be a great option for extended family members (like grandma) if the content is PG.
Play tourist in your own hometown by going to all of the popular tourist spots you may normally ignore or taking a fun tour of your neighborhood or closest major city. Take lots of pics and buy cheesy souvenirs too! You wouldn't be tourists if you didn't all wear matching items, though. Gear up in matching shirts or caps. Check out a "city" scavenger hunt app and run all over the city completing tasks or make up your own citywide scavenger hunt. Whatever you do, and wherever you go, be sure to snap a group pic and give it to the Bride as a special keepsake.
Is the bride's favorite band coming to town? Get dressed up and attend the concert! Bonus points if you can sneak backstage and meet them in person! (Maybe our "Future Mrs." tank top will help! Put the last name of your favorite member of the band on it. You'll be sure to stand out!)
Create a great song list, pack some snacks, grab a map, and hit the road! Stop at whatever weird tourist traps you can find along the way and take tons of pics! As a souvenir for the bride, pick up a paper map at a gas station and keep track of everywhere you go with quick notes on the map. Give it to her at the end of the trip!
Get out your big hats and make some mint juleps! Whether you like horse races, the south, or just an excuse to get dressed up, a Kentucky Derby theme makes for a fun party.

Show everyone that your a group by wearing matching items or pick a color for everyone to wear (the Bride in white of course).
Have every girl wear her favorite LBD (Little Black Dress) for this fun party. They'll feel more confident, comfortable, and gorgeous than they would in other outfits(and that'll come in handy when meeting guys at the club!)! The Bride can stand out among the black dresses by wearing a cute Bride sash over hers or put her in a white dress so she really stands out! Be sure to take lots of group shots, as you will all look amazing and it will be a night you will want to remember.
Take out all of that wedding planning aggression at the shooting range! You can be the Pistol packing bachelorettes!

Whether the theme is "Wedding Movies," "Favorite Chick Flicks," or "Hottest Hotties" a movie marathon with a lot of popcorn and wine is always a good time! Let your guests know what movies you're watching ahead of time by setting up a schedule for the night. Encourage guests to come dressed up as their favorite character or just in the theme (80's movies?). Or announce a theme and let each girl suggest her favorite film ending the night with the Brides fave. Prepare for guests arrival by making a giant pillow-filled area in front of the TV!
Feel like you're getting away from it all (without spending too much time or money) with a dinner cruise! Dinner cruises usually only last a couple hours and include food, drinks, dancing, and a great time with your girls, al for one price. Go above and beyond by getting all of your friends leis or adopting a nautical theme! Guests can really "let loose" at sea, so make sure you have a ride home for everyone after the cruise!
It's social, you get to get dressed up, and it's technically exercise: So, Go Dancing! Have the Bride pick a type of dance and take a private class before going out to try your new moves. Contact the local dance studio well in advance and make sure they have plenty of hot male dance instructors on staff. On the night of the party make sure you're dressed to impress! Choose skirts with lots of movement for this party. After your lesson, take the group out clubbing to try some new dance moves on the dance floor.
Go on a pub crawl and see how many free drinks the bachelorette can get throughout the night! Choose an area with several bars within walking distance. Make sure everyone knows the route before the night starts. Have each bachelorette choose a buddy, so no one gets left behind.

Create a challenge board on a large chalkboard or dry erase board and have rounds until you get to the ultimate players. Serve fun cocktails with names like "roll of the dice" or "go directly to jail". Get fun prizes for the winners like blow up dolls or a naughty squishy!
Most towns have studios that let you pick out a piece of pottery to paint that is later fired in a kiln. It's tons of fun and everyone gets a piece of art to take home a week or so after the party! Call ahead to reserve a space for your group and negotiate the price. Have everyone paint the same item, or let them each choose something different. Choose one large item as a gift for the Bride and ask everyone to paint something on it (a platter or photo frame?) Some studios will let you bring in your own snacks and drinks as well, especially if you reserve the whole studio. We recommend a nice cheese and cracker spread with some fruit and wine!
Get all of your craftiest friends together for a night of DIY projects. The key is to find a fun and easy project that is good for every level of crafter. Once you have selected a project, purchase all of the supplies so every guest can make one or two. Or have them work on something the Bride needs for the wedding! (How about bouquets, or a fun piece of jewelry or hair accessory to wear?) Just make sure you have extra supplies on hand for mistakes! Serve wine/cocktails and "finger foods" (with cute Wedding picks) and make sure you plan for several hours so people aren't rushed in making their creations.
Some boutiques will keep their store open in the evening for a private event just for you and your friends! Choose the Brides favorite shop and call ahead to inquire and schedule an evening before the Wedding. Some boutiques will even provide champagne and some snacks during the event, and even a discount! Team up with the other attendees to buy the bride a gift card to the store so she can choose something special to purchase and wear on her honeymoon. Have everyone "model" their fave outfits for a fun time!
Everyone's favorite book can be a great bachelorette party theme! Decorate the area in various shades of gray, and take turns reading steamy excerpts aloud from the book. Get the bride related gifts that'll make her blush. Handcuffs, blindfolds and ticklers are a good place to start, but also have everyone bring a new piece of lingerie for the Bride, to keep the fire burning, long after the honeymoon is over.
Get the bride ready for her honeymoon by having the party's theme be based on location she'll be going! For instance, is she heading to Paris? Have a French-themed soiree with accents of eiffel towers and berets. Is she going camping? Go for a wilderness vibe! Make a list of items she will need and ask guests in advance to gift items she will need that are part of the theme. Make sure to get her plenty of goodies (and outfits) she can use on her honeymoon! This theme will take a big worry of the Bride's plate and she can better relax and enjoy the Wedding!
Rent a boat for the day and party in style! There is nothing as sweet as a yacht, your girlfriends, and some bubbly...Just make sure you have a designated boat driver (so the rest of you can have a couple drinks)! Boot a hot boat captain and have him him wait at the front of the boat and "lei" each girl as she arrives and gets on the boat. Get disposable bachelorette tableware and serve your beverages in plastic cups, but make them cute! Find items with an anchor theme, or nautical stripes.
Get all your little monsters together and get ready to party the night away! Dress up in your wildest outfits and makeup, or make your own versions of Gaga's most famous costumes. You'll stand out for sure (and the costumes will make for some great pictures!). Assign each girl a song and head to a karaoke bar! Put on a Lady Gaga show and record it all for the Bride as a keepsake.
Get glamorous! Wear your nicest cocktail gowns and put your hair in finger waves. Enjoy champagne and fancy appetizers while listening to Jazz. Bonus points if you get a red carpet, a live band, and some fake paparazzi! Channel your inner "Great Gatsby" with art deco touches in the décor. Hire a photographer and make all the photos black and white to fit with the theme. Present the Bride with a photo book after the party that she will always cherish.
It doesn't have to be Halloween for you to wear costumes! You'll stand out (and feel a bit more wild) dressed up as something you're not. Pick a specific costume for all of the girls to wear and put the bride in a different one, or pick a theme like "TV Show characters," "Famous Brides," or "Pageant Princesses from the 80"s." Give your girls lots of notice with this theme and ask them to go all out. Meet up before going out on the town for drinks and head out in a limo or party bus. This will be a night the Bride will be talking about for years to come.
Get a wig for every party attendee and enjoy celebrating in a wild disguise! Incorporate the wig into a "Blondes Have More Fun" party theme or go for outrageous colors that would never be found in nature. You'll have so much fun being someone a bit different for a night! Give prizes for the most outrageous wig or outfit. Have a "wig off" runway and have people vote by ballot. Be sure to head out on the town - because in disguise, everyone can let their hair down (pun intended) and have a wild time!
The bachelorette's a little sweet and a little spicy, and so is her party! Have sweet and spicy foods (try incorporating spicy peppers into desserts!), drinks, activities (like a sweet and spicy version of Truth or Dare), and gifts. Have each girl come to the party with a "sweet" fact and a "spicy" fact about the bride and share them throughout the night!
Dress up as the real housewives of YOUR county, or dress up as your favorite characters from the show! Make it feel even more real by going around town in a limo and hiring a friend to take photos/video of you all. Just try to avoid the cat fights...or stage one - acting out your favorite drink throwing scenes. If your in a city where the housewives actual shoot, choose a venue that they have actual shot the show in before! Whether it's Atlanta, Beverly Hills or NYC, this theme will be one to remember.
Visit Disneyland or Disney World and party with Mickey and Minnie! Get matching ears or shirts and take pics with all of your favorite Disney iconic landmarks and Princess! Schedule a nice dinner in the park with a character visit. Make sure you get lots of photos! Have the Bride list her favorite rides and head around the park together checking each one off the list. Make sure you stick around for the fireworks and toast the Bride and her happiness in the happiest place on earth!
Hit up your local mall and hold a wild scavenger hunt that involves the bachelorettes buying or photographing ridiculous items from the various stores! Ideas like: "trying on pink pumps" , "get a smokey eye at the makeup counter" or "eating a pretzel dog in a provocative way". Award the team with the most items found or tasks completed in the fastest time with a gift certificate to a fave mall store. End the night at a restaurant or bar near the mall to relive your adventure and share the photos!
Have everyone prepare their favorite story about the Bride to be! Have the Bride sit in front of everyone in a special chair and take turns presenting your stories and jokes about her. Encourage guests to make it extra funny. Have lots of champagne or cocktails on hand to toast the Bride with. Just make sure you end the stories with nice comments about her! End the night with a special heartfelt toast from the Maid of Honor or the Bride's closest/longest friend.
Dress in corsets, tutus, and boas, and strut your stuff all night! Start the evening by getting ready together and watching the movie "Burlesque" for inspiration. Then take a party bus or Limo to a burlesque show! Contact the show in advance and ask about having a burlesque performer teach you some new moves. After the show, head to a club and show off your own burlesque style. Make sure the Bride learns plenty of moves to show the Groom on the honeymoon.
If your looking for a classy party idea for a Jazz loving Bride, you found it! Hold your party at a jazz club or speakeasy! Get dressed up in a flapper style and enjoy a nice night of sipping cocktails and listening to jazz. Add sashes over your outfits as a great way to show off your Bachelorette status while staying classy.
Visit a ski resort for the weekend! You'll get exercise, bond with your friends, and get a chance to be cozy and relax before the big day! Hit the slopes during the day with all your friends for a great and fun workout. After the skiing, warm up in the hot tub over some wine and conversation, or head to the spa for massages. In the evening, get changed for a dressy dinner at the resort or a mini pub crawl in the ski village..
Have a bonfire for things belonging to old loves and crushes. Have every attendee bring pictures or souvenirs from old relationships (or ones reminding them of past relationships of the bride). As they burn their item, they can tell a story about the person. You can even hold a reading of embarrassing notes or poetry written in your pre-teen and teenage days! This is a cathartic way to end the dating days and move on to the future relationship of the bride and groom! After the last item is burned, roast marshmallows.
Does the bride have a list of things she wanted to do before she got married? Hobbies that her fiancé doesn't love as much as she does? Do as much of them as you can! Start by having the Bride make a singledom bucket list. Send the list out to the attendees and see who wants to accompany the Bride on each item (all of the party attendees might not want to go skydiving!). Take the whole day and check off as many of the bucket list items as you can. Take pictures when each task is completed. End the day with a dinner and cocktails, toasting each checked off item and the future couple.
You don't have to get drunk or be wild at your bachelorette party! Instead, find an organization you support, and spend the day volunteering with your bridesmaids and friends. Clean up a park, walk shelter dogs, mentor some kids, serve at a soup kitchen, or go shopping for a shelter! The Bride will feel amazing before her Wedding day knowing she made a difference.
Dress like old-school pin-up girls (corsets, vintage clothing, pearls) and hire a makeup artist and a photographer to take great photos of everyone. Create prints for the girls to sign, and separate smaller prints to give to your significant others! Have lots of cocktails on hand and a music playlist of the bride's favorite songs.
Forget dance clubs, spend the day at the country club! Go golfing ( add little crazy golf cart driving) , grab a nice long lunch, and hang out by the pool. Jump into the sauna to add to the Bride's Wedding "glow". Don't forget your khakis, polos, and pearls! Just make sure the girls don't get too crazy--be respectable while in the club!
Get together with your friends and pull a great prank on the guys and their bachelor party! This is great if their party is on the same day as yours. Looking for ideas? Dress up in wigs and sunglasses and flirt with them, see if they recognize you! Or if the bride has keys to the groom's car, you can leave surprises inside of it! Your will have a blast with your besties being in stealth mode and pulling off the ultimate prank!
It may sound somber, but it's a lot of fun! Attend an interactive Murder Mystery Dinner in your hometown or use an at-home-kit to do your own! Read the instructions and pass out character roles before the big night so each guest can dress their part. You'll get to dress up and play a character. Make sure the Bride has a key role in the murder mystery! YOU may even be the killer or solve the murder! After the dinner, head out on the town to discuss your deductions.
Ready to go back in time to your college days? Go back to your favorite college pub, or stay at home with beer pong, cheap drinks, and pizza. Wear the colors of your alma mater or just dress like a college student o play the part. ! Not near your college? Take over a campus near you and hit all of the nearby bars. The drinks are usually cheap and the vibe is fun!
Try something you've always wanted to do but never have: Bungie jumping or skydiving, maybe? Just make sure all of the party goers actually want to participate! Hold a "You Did It!" celebratory party once you're safely back on the ground. This kind of adrenaline rush will help the Bride take her mind off the upcoming "I do's" and relax with friends.
Tell me what you want , what you really really want...a Spice girls flashback party! Have everyone come dressed as their favorite spice girl (or in their 90's pastel-and-platform-sandal best) and party the night away listening to Spice Girl classics! Hit up a British pub to start the night, take tons of pics, and then come back home to watch Spice World and sing along to their hits.
Get out and enjoy nature with a beautiful hike with your girls! Make a special trail mix snack full of the bachelorette's favorite things, and take a group picture at your destination ( a mountain top?). End the day with a long, delicious dinner at sunset on a patio. Being immersed in nature will help calm the nerves of a jittery Bride and the workout will help her fit in the dress!
Can't meet up in person? Have each lady prepare their favorite drink and an embarrassing story about the bride, and party online through a Google Hangout, Zoom Meeting or Skype Call! Want to give the bachelorette gifts? Ship them to her house in advance and have her open them during the call. Also, download a fun App so you can all play a game together online. We like "houseparty" for trivia and more!
Go a little naughty and a bit fantastical with an Alice in Wonderland theme! Find a cute guy to wear bunny ears and lead you on a pub crawl. Planning on staying in? Make sure you have cups labeled "Drink Me," beautiful cookies, and tea!
Beach Please! The beach is a great choice for a party before the Wedding! Go to the nearest beach and spend the day there! Grab some fun tropical or pineapple theme party supplies. Play a round of beach volleyball, splash around, go to a beachside bar, and work on your tan. Get the Bride a special beach towel or Bride sandals for this special beach day. Put together little party favors in sand pails that include fun bachelorette sunglasses, a cute water bottle, sunscreen, and more.
Take a hot air balloon or helicopter ride to get a good view of your town! You'll feel larger than life up there. After the ride, have dinner or drinks on the rooftop of the highest building available nearest to you. You'll love looking down on the city and reminiscing about your day with your friends!
Go for a medieval theme! Attend a medieval themed restaurant or show, or attend a renaissance fair. It's most likely a big departure from your average day, but hey: turkey legs, mead, corsets, and hot knights. What's not to love? End the night with some fun medieval romcom movies like The Princess Bride and A Knight's Tale.
Forget a pub crawl, go on a "food crawl!" Visit the Bride's favorite restaurants and order an appetizer or two to share (taste)at each location. Or go to an area that food trucks frequent and try something from each truck! Let each girl pick her favorite item, and then get together and share them all "family style," Also, many cities also have food crawls that you can sign up for as a group with a guide and free tastes as lots of restaurants. Some have specific themes (like chocolate!) and include wine parings!
Tiffany's and Audrey Hepburn, how can you go wrong? Dress in black and Tiffany blue and start the day with a delicious breakfast, a stop at the famous jewelry store, then do a small Audrey-inspired photo shoot, and end the day with cocktails. Don't forget your big glasses and tiaras!
Quiz married women in the bride's life and have them give marriage advice for the bride. Read them aloud during the party and have the bride guess who said what. Then have all of the girls at the party share their advice (whether or not they're already married)!
Host a Fiesta complete with Mexican food, margaritas, fun music, fiesta party favors, and a "naughty" shaped piñata! Or have a Mexican food truck pull into your driveway or go to a Mexican restaurant with a bar and have the whole party there! Bonus points if it's a bar with a DJ or Karaoke machine!
We LOVE a good color theme party! Have a red-hot theme with red foods, red drinks, red lipstick, and a sizzling red dress for the Bride! The other girls can wear black to let the Bride stand out. Or dress everyone else in red and the Bride in white!
Don your best 20's attire and let the champagne flow! Party like you're at the biggest social event of the season. The "Great Gatsby" soundtrack is a great thing to have playing in the background. Invite some friends over early to help each other get ready. Have Wedding theme headbands, feathers, and instructions for fingerwaves on hand! Give fluffy feather boas as party favors to all of your guests to add to the ambiance!
Light up the night with a fun glow bachelorette party! Use a blacklight and neon markers to create fun custom tattoos on the bachelorettes, and dress them in glow bangle bracelets, and pink glow glasses too! Give the Bride some light up accessories, like a flashing wedding ring! Neon Pecker pops make great party favors.
Compete with the Bachelor Party for a fun coed event or break the bachelorette into 2 groups and have them compete against each other in this fun Olympic themed Bachelorette event! Dress in fun "Team Bride" and "Team Groom" shirts. Create fun events that are Wedding themed and outrageous for the Bride's friends to compete in.
Calling all mystical mermaid Bride's! If the Bride loves the ocean, waves, beach hair and a splash of magic, then this "Last Splash" or Mermaid theme Bachelorette Party may be the perfect party idea! Grab some iridescent items, like shell shaped plates, to add a special sparkle to the event. Look for mermaid motif party favors and choose a venue that is outside - like a boat charter!
