Bachelorette Party Ideas: A Day For Pampering and Fun


Are wedding bells going to ring for one of your female friends sometime soon? Are you thinking of how to throw a memorable bachelorette party? Whether you are the maid of honor or one of the bridesmaids, it helps to start brainstorming ideas for a fun bachelorette party early. Remember that the bachelorette party is primarily about the bride-to be, and make sure the plan is tailored to fit her personality. As for the guest list, the sky’s the limit. Recently the NY Times reported  on a bachelorette party planned and attended by the bride’s mother. Invite anyone, male or female, who the bride would want there. As for the activity, there are endless options.
For example, a spa day allows the bride-to-be to feel completely pampered, with the added bonus of everyone else at the party feeling special as well. Though this can be a pricey option, it is sure to leave everyone feeling relaxed and beautiful at the end of the day.
If the bachelorette likes DIY and wants to save money, consider staying at home for a craft night. Guests can help make wedding decorations and even housewarming gifts for the couple’s future home. A craft night can even turn into an adult slumber party, with wine and storytelling long into the night.
Are you looking for a more adventurous option? Take the bachelorette party on a camping trip complete with s’mores, hiking, and scary stories around a fire pit. Even just a couple days of roughing it out in the woods can create tons of memories that no one will ever forget.
Finally, there is the classic option for a more boisterous bachelorette: a night of bar hopping that can get as wild as the people involved make it. Make everyone wear gaudy t-shirts identifying their role in the wedding, find a fake veil for the bride-to-be, and spend the night making increasingly more emotional toasts to the upcoming marriage that no one will really remember in the morning.
These are just a few of the numerous kinds of bachelorette parties sure to create lasting memories for your engaged friend. As the LA Times reported in 2007 , bachelorette parties are becoming more inventive in recent years so don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Just keep in mind that a bachelorette party is about celebrating your friend and looking forward to her future marriage. Keep the focus on her and have a great time.
