Summer is a great time to plan a bachelorette party before a fall wedding. Bachelorette parties are a chance for the bride to get a little wild with the girls before tying the knot. But this doesn’t have to mean doing it the way the boys do it at their bachelor parties: going to strip clubs, barhopping and yelling a lot. Here are some great ideas for throwing a killer bachelorette party the GIRLS way!
5: The Blow-off-some-steam Bachelorette Party
The bride and her entourage are sure to have built up stress in the days leading up to the nuptials. Help her blow off some steam by taking the bridal entourage to a shooting range to squeeze off a few rounds. Hit the driving range, batting cages or even an indoor speedway to get the adrenaline pumping.
4: The Glamour Shots Bachelorette Party
Costumes at bachelorette parties are always a good idea. But to really get in the mood, begin the night at a professional portrait studio for a picture of the group in costume. There are plenty of themes to choose from: Jersey Shore, 80s, Pop Star Princesses, or a coordinating color!
3: The Purpose-driven Bachelorette Party
A bride spends months wading through the dullest details of her wedding but what she might not have been preparing for is the honeymoon. So, grab the girls and make a run for the mall with a list of honeymoon and wedding night necessities. Assign a gift to each guest, and make sure the bride is suited up with everything she needs.
2: The Road Trip Bachelorette Party
What’s a bachelorette party really about? A bachelorette party is the last send-off gesture of female solidarity before marriage, and what better way to get in some girl time than a road trip? Hike out to a hot spring, camp out on the beach, or spend the weekend at a resort.
1: The Dance Class Bachelorette Party
For the bachelorette who’s looking for something a little naughty without the awkwardness of a strip club, sign up for a private pole dancing class. Lady Katherine in Hudson offers private parties, which is a great way to get a good workout in, goof off with the girls and maybe pick up a sexy move or two. You could also book a night at Dancers Studio for an afternoon of belly dancing, tango or salsa lessons!
