Planning a bachelorette party for your bestie? Unless the bride-to-be specifically requests a wild night in the spotlight, skip the strippers, penis straws and risqué checklists and plan a bachelorette bash that truly fits the bride’s interests and hobbies. We’ve curated eight offbeat bachelorette party ideas that will leave lasting memories of a fun time shared with friends long after she says “I do.”
1. Go Glamping
You don’t have to totally rough it to enjoy the great outdoors! From tents to teepees, there are so many options for lodging, and the camp activities are endless. Keep planning stress-free and use glamping.com to find the perfect campsite for your party.
Reserve each bridesmaid’s sleeping bag with a charming antler sign she can keep as a memento.
2. Hit the Slopes
A ski weekend is fitting for a winter bachlorette party! Hit the slopes in the morning and rent a cozy cabin for a good old girls’ night in. After an active day, warm up with a cute hot chocolate bar and relax with a wedding-themed movie marathon.
3. Start Sweating for the Wedding
A group spin class or dance lesson can be a great opportunity for all of the bridesmaids to bond while getting fit for the big day. Bring the bride’s “squad goals” to life with matching shirts, like these “Ride for the bride” ones, and get everyone excited for the fun activities planned!
4. Take a Flower Arranging Class
Any creative girl will love an afternoon spent crafting! Take a flower arranging class or use this bohemian bouquet recipe to practice putting together beautiful bouquets, flowers crowns, and more! This is a great idea for a DIY bride who will be enlisting the help of her bridesmaids to put together the flowers for the big day.
5. Craft Your Own Cocktails
Celebrate the bride’s “last call” with a classy mixology class. You’ll have a whole new appreciation for cocktail hour, and you’ll be able to show off your new recipes whenever you entertain!
6. Go Up, Up and Away
If you’re a bunch of adrenaline junkies, consider a relaxing hot air balloon ride or an exhilarating sky diving adventure!
7. Keep it Classy and Sassy
Surprise the bride with a lingerie shower as part of the bachelorette party festivities. A French-inspired theme keeps it classy!
Personalized touches, like custom candy bags filled with the bride’s favorite candy, make sweet favors to take home.
8. Check in at the Spa
With all the planning that goes into a wedding, sometimes less is more! A spa day may be just the right fix for a stressed out bride. Check in at a full service spa for some much needed rest and relaxation before the big day. Satin robes for the bride and bridesmaids make great gifts that they can use on the big day.
A hello gorgeous lips-shaped manicure set is a practical favor for the girls to keep up their pretty manicures, too!
