12 New Bachelorette Party Ideas
Weddings are finally happening again after a long wait and with many upcoming weddings in the near future comes another pre-wedding event- the bachelorette party! If you’re looking for creative ideas for the bachelorette party you’re planning, look no further. We’ve put together a list of 10 new bachelorette party ideas for 2021.
Bachelorette parties have evolved from small scale events to multi-day affairs with customized decorations, activities, surprises and much more. The best bachelorette parties focus on the bride and making sure that she enjoys the party. This party is an opportunity to celebrate her last few days or weeks as a single woman so think about what types of celebrations she loves most, whether it’s a beach party, a karaoke night out, a relaxing yoga retreat or going on to the destination she always wanted to go to.
Have a Theme
The best way to make your bachelorette party memorable is to choose a theme. This will also help you come up with the perfect decorations, accessories, outfits, gifts and party favours. Think about what the bride enjoys or what she would find hilarious and go from there. If you need ideas for theme parties, have a look at this blog post.
Organize a Spa Wellness Day
The classic booze-filled bachelorette weekend is the dream for some brides while other brides-to-be might prefer something a little more laid-back. A wellness weekend at a spa could be the perfect bachelorette party in this case. Wedding planning can be stressful and who doesn’t love a bit of pampering! Organize massages and facials and other beauty and wellness procedures for everyone and spend a relaxing weekend at the pool and in the saunas and hot tubs.
Go On a Yoga Retreat and Hiking Trip
If the bride-to-be is a devoted yogi, why not organize a yoga retreat for the girls complete with hiking, surfing, kayaking and other fun outdoor activities.
Take Trip to the Bride’s Dream Destination and Rent a Home
If you’ve been talking about a girl’s trip for a while but never got around to it, why not go there for the bachelorette party? Or if the bride always talked about a destination that she wanted to visit, then it could be a great idea to surprise her with a trip there. You can choose to rent a holiday home anywhere in the country or even abroad and throw a bachelorette party there. This is a great option if you want to surprise the bride-to-be with a girls’ getaway.
Party On the Beach
Does the bride-to-be just love spending summer nights partying on the beach? You might organize a beach house getaway to the shore and have loads of fun swimming and sunbathing during the day and partying on the beach at night. This is also a great way to get a tan before the big wedding day.
Go on a Mini Sunset Cruise
Rent a sailboat, yacht or river cruise for the bride’s “last sail before the veil”. This can be a fun way to celebrate the bride’s final weeks or days as a single woman with Instagram-worthy photos.
Sing Your Heart Out at a Karaoke Bar
Sing your heart out at a karaoke bar and let the bride be a superstar for a night! You can also book a private room if your crew doesn’t want to sing in front of everyone.
Choose the Perfect Decorations
What separates a bachelorette party from just a regular getaway or girls’ night out are all the matching outfits, decorations and accessories…and of course the special occasion! Decorating the venue is an awesome way to create a super festive environment and to get everyone in a celebratory mood.
You can choose funny decorations or cute decorations like balloons, flowers, candles, tableware, special cups. Have a look at some decoration ideas here.
Make Sure the Bride Stands Out
It’s the bride-to-be’s big night after all. Make sure she stands out from the rest with a special outfit, special accessories (like a headband) and/or a special cup.
Have Matching Outfits
A great way to make a bachelorette party feel different than just a girls’ getaway is for all of the bride’s maids to wear matching outfits or accessories that compliment the bride to be. You can keep it simple with just a headband or sunglasses or go all out with matching dresses etc.
Plan Some Bachelorette Party Games and Activities
Bachelorette party games can be a huge hit and make this special event even more memorable plus they can lead to many laughs. Some ideas could include scavenger hunts, games on how well people know the bride, bachelorette dare cards, drink if, and many more. For some ideas have a look here.
You can also schedule some activities like wine tasting, dinners, classes, a ropes course, horseback riding, bowling, an escape room…anything that you think the bride will enjoy! Don’t forget to also factor in some down time and time for the girls to get ready for the events and activities.
Create a Playlist for the Bride
Put together a playlist with the bride’s all-time favourite songs. Feel free to include recent favourites and songs you have crazy memories to from years ago.
PS Don’t Forget to Take Pictures!
Make sure you have a way to capture the bachelorette party and create a shared photo library or even a photo album that you can all look back on and laugh about in the future.
Planning a bachelorette party can be a lot of work but it’s a fantastic way to celebrate the bride’s last weeks or days before the “I Do”. Each bride is different and it is her big night so make sure to plan the perfect event for her.
