Planning a bachelorette party should center around the personality of the bachelorette. Is she fun and outgoing or is she more quiet and prefer not to be in the spotlight? Also, with the traditional bachelorette party, would she be comfortable with the more risqué, or would it be offensive? These are all important questions, which will determine the success of your bachelorette party.
You can choose activities centered at home, or out in the community. Community gathering places include the traditional restaurant and bars. Increasingly popular are creative outings such as spas, sporting events, camping, and amusement parks.
·Bachelor and bachelorette parties are associated with strip clubs and limo rides. There are also many creative "PG-13" ideas to make it fun for all!
·Here are some activity ideas:
·Roast the bachelorette. Include all kinds of funny memories and embarrassing videos or photos!
·Is the bachelorette known for any particular hobby or activity? How about an all-inclusive sport such as bowling or ice-skating? It may have better participation than if the bachelorette is known for sky diving or extreme sports!
·Gambling on a winner? Choose a casino night for an easy to put together bachelorette party.
·Is a happy marriage in the cards? Use a fortune telling theme complete with palm readings and crystal balls.
·Pamper the bachelorette. You can pamper her with a day at the spa complete with manicures, pedicures, and massages. It can take place at the spa itself, or create a pajama party for in-home pampering.
·A western theme can be used to "wrangle" the bachelorette into marriage. Decorate with "wanted" posters of the bachelor or bachelorette. Give a lasso as a prop to the bachelorette as a metaphor for "roping" her man to the alter!
·Create a time capsule to be opened in five years. Include some of her cherished pre-marriage items and a questionnaire about what she thinks marriage will be like. For example, "Who (bachelor or bachelorette) will there be "more of to love (weight gain)" in five years?" Make a video of the party to include in her time capsule.
·Board games or card game championships
·Hold a couples party and play the Newlywed Game to see who's most in tune with each other.
·Murder mystery party with a honeymooning script. Purchase murder mystery scripts or use a local murder mystery company to host the event.
·Hire a belly dancer or salsa dancer to give lessons and give the bachelorette a little spice for her honeymoon. Everyone will have a good laugh as they try out their new skills!
I hope these bachelorette party ideas helped spark some fun ideas for your upcoming celebration!
