She’s got the groom, booked the venue, and picked the wedding dress, and is now in countdown mode for her upcoming nuptials. The last thing she needs to do is to celebrate with all her favorite gal pals! If you’re planning a bachelorette party for one of your best friends, skip the boring and cheesy “Thunder from Down Under” ideas and instead opt for one of these unique party events catered to her specific interests and likes.
A Camping Trip
Maybe she’s an adventurous gal who can’t get enough of the great outdoors. If that’s the case, a camping trip might be right up her alley. Gather the girls, get a few tents and sleeping bags, and hit the road for a camping adventure she’ll never forget. If she—or the rest of the crew—aren’t looking to get rough and tumble out in the wild, consider glamping or renting a beautiful cabin for the weekend. Getting away for the weekend to regroup during her stressful wedding planning time will definitely be a welcome break, and a moment of peace out in nature is sure to bring some calm to her no doubt frenzied mind. If she’s a bride who’s looking to do a combined bachelor and bachelorette party, this is an excellent idea.
An Old-School Sleepover
Harken back to high school and get the giggles going with a fun bachelorette sleepover. If she’s one who loves to gab and hang with her girls, this is the perfect idea, plus it works great for those working on a tight budget. Pick a house with a huge living room, take over as many blow up mattresses as you can find, and create a pillow mountain in the center where you can all lounge for the evening. Pop the bubbly, order food in, treat yourselves to a chocolate fondue set, and queue up a romantic comedy on the television. Don’t forget to bring the games; nothing harkens back to high school like a rousing game of Never Have I Ever or Truth or Dare.
If the bride is seeking a chilled out bachelorette party, take in the wine country and sample some delicious cabernets and pinots for the weekend. Rent a limo or hop in several Ubers and head out to local wineries offering their greatest pours. Picturesque settings will provide the perfect background for oodles of photos, and the relaxed atmosphere will definitely get her in a happy headspace in the weeks or months before her nuptials.
A Pole Dancing Class
If she’s looking to give her soon to be husband a sassy surprise and isn’t afraid to try new things, then a pole dancing class will be the hilarious yet sensual bachelorette party she never knew she needed. This popular exercise alternative is popping up in cities across the country, so it shouldn’t be too tough to find a location in your area. Make sure you double-check with the bride-to-be first to ensure this is something she’s actually interested in trying.
For the Adventurous Crew
Is the bachelorette an adrenaline junkie that is usually running off to try some new daredevil stunt that other people would never imagine doing? Then an experience day is definitely in order. Maybe the group can rent jet skis for a day of water-riding fun, or check out a local zip-lining course that will have her flying high through the sky. If you’re having trouble coming up with adventure ideas in your neck of the woods, use a site like ExperienceDays.com. It will list all the activities you can take part in in your geographical area.
Don’t Forget the Gifts
This is an exciting time for the bride to be, and you and her best girlfriends can share in her joy with a wonderful bachelorette party. Don’t forget to find the perfect present to commemorate the occasion. Make it special with thoughtful, personalized gifts that will remind her of her best friends and prepare her for her upcoming walk down the aisle. Maybe it’s a charm bracelet engraved with hers and his initials, or some customized wall art that she can hang in their home after the wedding. Whatever you decide, give it a bit of heartfelt thought and you’re sure to have a hit on your hands.
