20 Fun Bachelorette Party Ideas


Don’t we all love weddings? The billowing white tulle, the teary declarations of love everlasting, and last but definitely not least, the bachelorette party. The mention of the words "bachelorette party" usually brings up pictures of unbridled debauchery, booze and lots of cash down the drain. This need not to be the case. After all, hiring a stripper and drinking are not the only ways to have a good time. If your BFF is finally getting hitched, here are some great bachelorette party ideas that will turn a regular night into an event.

20 Fun Bachelorette Party Ideas


Go camping

Does the bride to be have a penchant for the great outdoors? Then this is a no-brainer. Check out the campsites in your area and make bookings well in advance. Make sure to ask about the activities on offer. Canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing or swimming can add a spark to the occasion. All guests should be made aware of the itinerary so they know what to pack. And don’t forget the toilet paper!

One day on the road

You don’t have to settle for one plan. Why not have it all? Go on a road trip and explore all you can. Hire a chauffeur driven limo and visit all the places you fancy. If the group is too big, you can hire a luxury van. Since there is a designated driver, you can have all the fun you want, and you won’t have to worry about driving home. You can opt to have a party at an apartment or hotel in the evening. This can be a tad bit expensive compared to other ideas.


A sport party

Is the bride to be sporty? Why not make her day by holding bachelorette Olympics? You can even have the groom’s party participate in the wedding related games. Don’t worry, they’ll love it. Play games such as "walk the bride down the aisle" relay and "garter toss". You can also try to make a wedding dress out of toilet paper.

Run a marathon

This is not for everyone. But if it’s the bride to be's cup of tea, go for it. Sign up for a marathon and run for fun. You can all get some cute running hoodies and pants to spice things up. It is both affordable and fun. You can bet all the guys in the marathon will have their eyes on your group. Enjoy yourselves!


A spa day

As far as bachelorette party ideas go, this is one of the best. Your BFF and the whole bridal party can go to a high end spa and pamper yourselves. Get facials and massages as you unwind. Not only will you feel relaxed and refreshed, but you’ll also be at your best during the wedding. This is one activity everyone is bound to enjoy.

Girl’s tea party

If the bride to be wants a classier party, you can host a tea party for her. Have a variety of teas, sandwiches and desserts. Make sure everyone is dressed up for the occasion. Also, dress the tables up to have them looking extra fancy.

The only other thing you will need is lots of chocolate and cheese. This can be fun and uncostly. Just make sure check with the bride to be if she likes fondue.


A music festival

If the bride to be is a music fan, you can’t go wrong with a music festival. Get tickets for a local music festival and tag the girls along. You can goof around all you want as you dance. You can buy some booze to spice up the day. This is a fairly low cost party idea.


A Karaoke party

It doesn’t matter whether you can sing or not. You are bound to enjoy as you serenade the bachelorette with her favorite ballads. This will cost you next to nothing.


Glamour shots

Go sailing

This is one of the best bachelorette party ideas. You can hire a boat or a luxe yacht and go sailing with the group, the bride to be will surely love it! Dress for the occasion by picking up sailor’s hats with white and blue stripes. Later you can go out for a delicious seafood dinner.

Play paintball

Wanna get messy? What better way than playing paintball? This can be a great party idea for the bachelorette with a sense of humor. Gang up against her and make it a day to remember. It’s economical, fun and dirty.


Casino party

Get dolled up for the night, take the girl of the hour to your favorite casino and enjoy some fun and games. If the bride to be is not up to going out, you can play your favorite casino card games right in the her living room. You can hire bartenders and card dealers if you’re up to it. This won’t cost much.


Learn some sexy dance

Have the bride to be ever danced on a pole? This is her chance to give it a try. Make the bachelorette party about learning how to wrap your body around a pole and pull some sexy moves. It’s a lot of fun, but be careful not to fall.
