Don’t Bore Your Bride Tribe: Exploring a Bold New Frontier for Bachelorette Parties

So your bestie’s getting married and you’re throwing her a bachelorette party. This is quite a responsibility you’ve taken on. Think about it. It’s her last night as a single woman and she’s going to want to make it a night to remember (in a positive way of course). For starters, forget dressing her up in a veil and dragging her from bar to bar. Bachelorette parties have come a long way baby. Ditch those boring notions and get swinging with these ideas.

Have a Private Karaoke Party

Come on girls, you know you love to karaoke, but some friend are a little too shy to sing in front of strangers, even after a few drinks. Why not have a private karaoke party for the bride-to-be and her closest girlfriends. You can hire a room in a bar or even have it at home – at least you won’t have far to go to get to bed.

Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt

If you want to have fun get silly and a little naughty, you can host a scavenger hunt with outrageous tasks. You must take a selfie each time you complete a task and you can award crazy prizes for the first to complete the hunt and the most creative picture.

Go On a Yoga Retreat

Wedding planning is stressful and if your bride-to-be is really strung out from all the preparations, she might enjoy a Zen time with you all at a yoga retreat. A weekend of rest and relaxation might just be the thing that the whole wedding crew needs, so you’re all refreshed and charged up for the big day.

Bachelorette Murder Mystery Party

How about a party with a dark twist? Have dinner and get the gals sleuthing to solve a murder. You get characters assigned, so you can get into the role before you get to the party. Sip some wine – or something stronger – and follow the clues to solve the crime.

What to Wear to the Party

Your bachelorette party had better be fun so the bride-to-be can cut loose on her last night of freedom, so don’t get frumpy. Think up some cool outfits that are comfortable, sexy and funny. What you wear, will to some degree, be dictated by the venue of the party. If you’re having brunch at the Hamptons, a floral dress with sandals and a clutch are appropriate, but if you’re clubbing in Vegas, then you can get a little wilder and also add a little humor to your outfits. Here you’ll find some great ideas for funky bachelorette party outfits.

Plan your party ahead of time and don’t throw it on the night before the wedding, the last thing your bestie wants on her wedding day is a hangover. Do something a little different so all the girls will be able to have a good laugh about it every time you get together.
