10 Bachelorette Party Essentials
Banners & Balloons
Even if you plan on checking into a hotel, you’ll want to jazz up the place just a bit. Banners on the wall and balloons in the corner, this is the kind of celebration that needs the decor. And there are tons of places to check out and grab some unique pieces.
Of course, you’ve got to invite the girls in style! No matter what kind of celebration or weekend you’ve been planning, this is where it all begins. You can make some of your own or shop around for a favorited design.
Having a bit of bubbly is a must too, of course. Whether you’re whipping them up to pass around or you’re finding a spot that mixes extra spicy margaritas on the rocks, pay attention to what you’re sippin’.

You’ve got to bring the bride-to-be some naughty bits to open too! Make sure you rally the rest of the gals behind this and shower the bride with a variety of new lingerie to enjoy once the vows are exchanged.
Food & Snacks
Obviously, if drinks are involved, there’s got to be something to munch on to. Scour the Internet for the hottest spots to grab a bite or create some magic in the kitchen with the best small dishes around to celebrate with.

You’ve got to schedule some time for fun and games too of course. Yes, they may be a bit kitschy but they’re really a good time and an absolute tradition for a bachelorette party. Think about Bingo, Trivia Games, or even a silly round of Truth or Dare.
Pass out some travel totes to all of the gals. These are perfect for weekend getaways and a way for everyone to pack their essentials for the pool. You can even stuff them with necessities like chapstick and sunscreen.
Also: Grab some cute ones by scouring through the options at Beau-coup.
Sashes & Tiaras
The bride needs to be all decked out from top to bottom. Pick up a tiara – with or without a veil – and a sash that tells everyone what’s going down. Sparkle, all white, or maybe even a bit of neon, match them with her personality and dress her in the best of bachelorette party gear.
What’s a girls’ bachelorette weekend without some matching tees to go to brunch or a shopping break in? The squad, the bridesmaids, the gals, whatever you want the shirts to say you’ll be able to find some great designs with just a bit of research.
Also: We love the ones being showcased at Brides.
And finally, there’s got to be some kickass favors to top off the fun. Temporary tattoos, wine glasses, hair accessories, candles, and more, there are so many routes to take. Just make sure you choose something that fits the mood of the event!
