Wellness Bachelorette Parties

A super hot trend this year has been wellness and self-care! And you bet it’s made its way into the party scene, and even more specifically into the bachelorette party scene! May we introduce to you: wellness bachelorette parties! And, yes, we did just use “wellness” and “party” in the same sentence. Typically, when you think of bachelorette parties, health and wellness are NOT the first things that come to mind. Well, maybe it’s time to change your thinking! Wellness bachelorette parties are focused on your physical and mental health, and promote relaxation, wellness, and your best self! There are tons of ways to achieve a wellness bachelorette party, and tons of reasons why you should, and we’re going to break it all down in this article!

 

What is wellness?

So what exactly is wellness? And what does it have to do with bachelorette parties? Merriam-Webster defines wellness as “the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal”. So, essentially wellness is the state and pursuit of health. That is, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, or environmental health. So, anything that makes you a “healthier” person (in whichever sense), is wellness! Surprisingly, a bachelorette party is the perfect place to practice and achieve wellness, believe it or not. Wellness tends to get overlooked or all together ignored in unusually stressful or tough times. And, if we know anything about wedding planning – it’s stressful. Utilizing your bachelorette party to slow down, relax, and practice self-care, is a great idea to help reduce pre-wedding stress and anxiety! It prepares you for your big day instead of setting you back (which a nasty hangover can definitely do). Wellness gets you more in touch with yourself and those around you while promoting well-rounded health and wellbeing. If this sounds more like your speed, keep reading!

How do you have a wellness party?

Now that we understand the basics, and have a better idea of what exactly we’re talking about, we can get into how wellness (especially at a bachelorette party) is achieved. There are honestly countless ways to achieve wellness, and it’s pretty subjective meaning that what one person swears by may not be super effective for another. Because of this, part of wellness is understanding yourself: your body, your needs, and what works and does not for yourself. Thus, wellness is a continual journey of exploration and discovery, not to sound totally cheesy.

Though the wellness world is virtually endless, and we definitely suggest taking advantage of that, there are some basic wellness-promoting activities that tend to monopolize the field. These activities are more “mainstream”, and a lot of them are great for beginners or groups – ahem, bachelorette parties! To make it super easy, we’ve compiled a list of 10 of our favorite wellness bachelorette party ideas that you will find just below!

Wellness bachelorette party ideas

  1. Spa day
    Facials, massages, saunas, the spa is the ultimate wellness hotspot! 
  2. Yoga class
    Yoga is the stereotypical wellness activity – and for good reason, it’s great! Even if you’re not into the spiritual aspects, yoga is amazing for your body physically. 
  3. Guided meditation
    Sometimes getting out of your head can be hard. Try guided meditation for a little help in achieving total relaxation. 
  4. Get “off the grid”
