Bachelorette Party – How to Organize a Unique Party. Discover 10 Unique Ways to Celebrate the Last Days as a Single Girl
Do you have to organize a bachelorette party for the bride-to-be? Here is all you need to know to organize a fun and stress-free bachelorette party.
Who Plans the Party?
The bachelorette party is usually planned by the maid of honor and bridesmaids, but any friends or relative close to the bride can host the party.
Whom to invite?
Make sure everyone you invite is someone the bride-to-be feels comfortable with. Generally the guest list includes the bride’s closest friends. There’s no rule for how many people one can invite, but I suggest to invite a small group of friends, for example up to 15 people.
Generally the party organizer asks for a contribution. The donation depends on the type of party, but in any case the future bride shouldn’t have to contribute. The budget should also include the purchase of funny gadgets.
A bachelorette party should take place at least a week before the wedding. The date depends on the type of party. For example, if you are planning a day spa, 3 days before the wedding is fine. If you are planning a wild party that will leave you all hangover consider to have the party at least a week away from the big day.
Bachelorette Party Ideas
Here are some classic and original ideas to have a fun bachelorette party for a range of budgets and interests.
1. A Party on the Water
Rent a boat, such as a sailing boat or a yacht, and organize a day out with the bride’s gals. This solution will give the bride a chance to chill and get some sun before her wedding. Don’t forget to bring some bubbles to make a toast together!
2. A Spa Day
A spa day is always a popular choice for wedding-related activities. It helps the bride unwind before the big day and relax with full-body massages, facial treatments and mani-pedi.
3. Go Camping
Not every bachelorette party has to be a night in a strip club. If the bride loves nature, go camping or rent a cabin in the woods in a place with nearby hiking trails.
4. Let’s Dance
Rent a limo, and arrange a dinner at a nice restaurant (it doesn’t need to be expensive!), and if you have some energy left, you could go to a club after dinner!
5. A Road Trip to the Beach
An alternative bachelorette party could be a road trip to a nearby beach or lake. Play volleyball, have a bonfire, and go to a beachside bar. This solution will help the bride relax and get some sun before the big day.
6. A Painting Class
Does the bride have a creative vein? A painting class offers a great opportunity to have fun, and the painting will be a nice souvenir of the night. You could also decide to book a private event. Some painting classes serve drinks and snacks during the event.
7. A Wine Tour
California, Oregon, Washington, and New York states are great places to have a winery tour. You could also book a night in a hotel nearby, or rent a limo to ensures everyone gets home safely.
8. A Pool Party
A pool party is always a perfect solution during summertime. Check out local hotels in your area that have a nice pool.
9. Circus Night
How about an unconventional night to the circus? For example, Katy Perry celebrated her bachelorette party with Rihanna at Cirque du Soleil in Vegas. Check out the Cirque du Soleil calendars and see when they are going to be in your area.
10. A Slumber Party
Grab your fun pajamas, order some pizza and play some fun bachelorette party games. This is also an affordable and intimate way to commemorate your friendship with the bride!
