Yes, a wedding is what is planned down to the smallest detail, but dear ladies, have you planned your bachelorette party? Here are some helpful ideas on how to organize it.
The bachelorette party is an indispensable part of the whole wedding story. Although the obligations regarding planning are far less than for the act of wedding itself, still some preparations are necessary in order for that evening to remain in the best possible memory.
Why Is a Bachelorette Party Important?
In fact, it is a great way for only girls to get together and go out or have a party together, relax and enjoy themselves.
Symbolically, this evening represents the last day of the future bride as a girl – she will soon become a woman and a different life awaits her.
At the bachelorette party, a girl can hear a lot of useful advice from those ladies who are already married, or she can just enjoy with her best friends with all-night chatting, maybe even a great dance if you decide to go out to a club.
However you decide to spend this evening, the point is to have a good time with your loved ones around you.
The Eternal Female Dilemma – What to Wear?
As with most cases, the clothes should fit the occasion. Depending on where you have agreed to spend the evening with the girls, you will choose the appropriate clothes.
For example, if you decide to go out to a club, it goes without saying that you will dress up, put on evening make-up, get on your favorite heels, and maybe a slightly more provocative outfit. Why not?
If it is a daily celebration, you can wear something more casual, but still harmonious, beautiful, and tastefully chosen. Lower heels or ballet flats, jeans, and some shirt with appropriate jewelry are a total hit. Of course, makeup doesn’t have to be strong.
And if you stay at home, leggings and a relaxed T-shirt are perfectly acceptable!
It’s an evening for the girls, but who should be invited?
The practice is mostly to call the bridesmaids, close relatives, and best friends. This is your team, these are the people you love the most and with whom you like to spend your free time. They are also a great company for any type of entertainment because you know each other and know who likes what.
Mini-Guide for Bridesmaids
We dedicate this part of the text to the girls who will have the honor to be bridesmaids. They are most often our best friends, which is just an additional plus when it comes to organizing a bachelorette party because it goes without saying that they know their friend very well.
The maid of honor should be your right hand, which means that she should help at all times: with planning, organization, be your encouragement and moral support – everything.
It is a custom for the maid of honor to organize a bachelorette party. If this is the case with you, don’t be under pressure: all you need is a little creativity.
You certainly already know the wishes and habits of the future bride very well, so you can guess what will make her happy the most: an unforgettable night out, lunch in a classy restaurant, a pleasant afternoon coffee with loved ones, or a girl’s chat at home.
You don’t have to do everything yourself: you can organize the other bridesmaids too!
We assume that you know each other well, so feel free to suggest that they get involved. It will be a relief for you, and they will be glad to help you and be a part of the organization. For example, if you plan to stay at home, you as a maid of honor could choose the place to sleep, prepare some interesting games that will cheer you up and entertain you, prepare a playlist with the bride’s favorite songs, old albums with photos from school and teenage days… Other girls can bring some cookies and snacks and your great evening can begin!
Just remember – the bride is the main star and do your best to make her feel that way, as well as to keep her girl’s memory forever: pay attention to her, listen to her wishes, entertain her because it is very possible that she is nervous about the upcoming important day, so laughter and a relaxed atmosphere will relax her.
Bachelorette Party Ideas
Regardless of whether you will implement the ideas for the bachelorette party yourself, leave it to the maid of honor or you will organize a bachelorette party together, we give you a few suggestions on how and where to do it.
A Bachelorette Party at Home
This is a great option if the bride belongs to the “calmer” type of girl, who does not go out often and enjoy relaxed conversations with friends. In that case, it would be ideal to organize and make a “pajama party“, which you will spice up with a good mood, laughter, reviving the memories of your foolishness from your younger days…
You can also read diaries from your teenage days, reminisce about first sympathies and mischiefs… This proposal is an additional plus because you will not get too tired, you will be able to sleep and be fresh for tomorrow. You can freely organize this kind of party with the girls the night before the wedding.
Night Out in a Club or Bar
If the bride loves good parties and fun, here’s a great way for all of you to relax that way, dance and recharge your batteries with great positive energy! Since this may be your last such outing together, try to make it unforgettable.
If you go out the night before the wedding, we advise you not to stay until the morning hours, because you don’t want to be hungover on the wedding day itself, right? You will also need energy for the wedding. Maybe it would be best to go out two, three days earlier, to spend this evening carefree.
Lunch or Dinner at a Restaurant
This can also mean a nice day together. Choose one of your favourite restaurants where delicious food is verified and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. This option is both moderate and elegant. Also, you can agree with the staff and prepare a final surprise in the form of an interesting cake, which will delight the future bride.
If this is your choice, it might not be a bad idea to brush up on a few basic rules of etiquette in a restaurant.
A Girls’ Journey
For this option, you need a little more organization and it is not just one evening, but a few days spent together.
If all the girls, including the bride (who has so much preparation for the wedding day), are able to set aside a little more free time, this is an ideal opportunity for wonderful moments of friendship and future precious memories.
Arrange everything together and visit an interesting destination: go sightseeing, shopping, and finally, on the last night of your time together, you can organize a bachelorette party in a club or maybe on the beach, depending on where you traveled.
It is certain that you will have a wonderful time and you will have time to talk and enjoy together.
Weekend at the Spa
This surely sounds good to you, doesn’t it? The weekend just for the girls and complete enjoyment and grooming: massage, pedicure, manicure, sauna, jacuzzi, pool… There is no better way to completely relax from the daily stress from the weekend at the spa and it will mean a lot especially to the future bride, who will certainly need and enjoy it. And with that, you will return beautified and relaxed.
Creative Decorations for a Bachelorette Party
Whether you are a maid of honor or a future bride or one of the bridesmaids who will participate in the organization of a bachelorette party, interesting details are what you definitely need to spice up your ideas for a bachelorette party!
If you spend the evening at home, you can decorate it with some colorful balloons that will cheer up the atmosphere; also buy some interesting napkins with, for example, a picture of a married couple, a bride in a wedding dress, etc. It will be great as a decoration with serving…
If you go out somewhere, get some T-shirts with a theme for a bachelorette party – it’s been very popular lately, and some of the most common inscriptions are: “One last ride for the Bride” or “Team Bride” (for other girls).
You can also get a beautiful tiara or ribbon for the bride, which she will wear throughout the evening, and other girls can wear hair bands for the bachelorette party to be known that they are her escort.
What definitely fits into any atmosphere of the celebration are badges for a bachelorette party, for example, they can say “Bride to be” and ”Bride’s team”, or “Girl’s night out” or if you prefer inscriptions in your mother tongue – “Bride and bride’s moral support”. You can be a little funny, why not, and wear badges with the inscription: “What happens at the bachelorette party stays at the bachelorette party”
Bachelorette Party Gifts
Let’s be honest, we all love some gifts because they are a sign of attention. And this is an opportunity to show it.
- If you are a future bride, you can give your friends and bridesmaids a practical gift, something that you know each of them needs. Also, feel free to be creative and come up with some original and crazy gifts: buy beautifully decorated letter paper with envelopes in the bookstore and write to each girl individually why you love her and how much she means to you. You will surely touch their hearts.
- If you are a maid of honor or one of the bridesmaids, our advice for all of you is to organize and buy one gift together. It can also be something funny, a T-shirt, or maybe a rolling pin and an apron with some funny inscriptions for a bachelorette party. The possibilities are really numerous!
It is important that it is not an ordinary gift, but an original one. What is even more important is that your hard work and love for design are recognized.
Games for a Bachelorette Party
The day of a bachelorette party is a day in life when you really need to have a crazy party, to totally relax with your friends and to have fun! It is clear that everyone consumes alcohol, but it really should not be used as only means to ensure a good mood.
If you come up with a good scenario, if you fill that evening (or even better the whole day + evening) with interesting content and if you are aware at all times that you are actually celebrating the transition from one way of life to another that must undoubtedly be better – a good mood cannot be left out. We are here to suggest some great bachelorette party games.
I Have Never …
Never say never except when you play this game. In this bachelorette party game, “I have never” examples of all the girls present should be imaginative and interesting, but of course, they should also be realistic because if one of the girls gives “I have never” example and no other girl says she did it, the one who asked would have to drink.
As it is already clear, but to summarize – one gives an example of something that she has never done, and those who did must drink. If no one has ever done that, the one who gave it drinks.
There can be a lot of tricky examples here. Of course, it’s best if you come up with your own examples, so here’s a little inspiration. In the absence of time and creativity, use the list, it will not be so bad.
I have never:
- cheated on the boy
- watched a male striptease
- lied about how old I was
- lied about how much weight I had
- performed a striptease to my boyfriend
- had sex for one night
- used some sexy toy
- worn a skirt without panties
- had sex in a car, a plane, an elevator …
- stolen something from the store
- vomited in public
- masturbated in front of someone
- woken up with a guy I didn’t know
- kissed the girl
- kissed with two boys during one evening
- been with a married man
- had homosexual fantasies
- been to a nudist beach
When you read about this game, I believe that many of you will think that this is not a game and that a “penalty point” can be easily avoided. But as we know, the forbidden fruit is always sweet and juicy. This will probably be the case if you start playing this bachelorette party game.
First, you will always have in your mind what you must not say, then when the party heats up you will forget and the forbidden words will just “fall out”.
So, it’s about determining which words are forbidden to be uttered throughout a bachelorette party. Those words should primarily be all those related to the wedding because, as we have already mentioned somewhere, the bachelorette party is a “restart” before the wedding and the wedding should not be a topic.
Wedding, bridesmaids, his name, first dance, cake, decoration, wedding dress, his parents, the band that will play at the wedding, and so on… So, in addition to the forbidden words, you can also introduce forbidden topics, it will be more fun.
Whoever utters a forbidden word or initiates a forbidden topic (whether with a bride or with one of the girls present), should know – she is the one who drinks!
You can also play the game if you go out, just be careful – if someone handsome comes up and asks what is being celebrated, let the one who is the soberest at that moment answer.
Quantity Is Important!
This bachelorette party game has three functions.
- The first is to make the girls’ night or day out more interesting.
- Second, it is equally important that the winner wins some gift (which the girls prepare in advance and of course they all want for themselves, so it must be something special). The bride can also prepare that gift and make it a surprise. (We don’t believe that it would be ok for the bride to win.)
- And the third part, quantity – In our case, it is about the possibility for single girls to meet as many men as possible (and maybe get some phone numbers).
The condition for this bachelorette party game is nice weather, and the rest could not be simpler. Put on a plain white or whatever color T-shirts you want to serve to collect signatures on them. It is logical that, in order to make this game more attractive, T-shirts should be body tight.
You go to a nice place with a lot of people. You split up, in pairs, or individually, depending on how much you want to fight for the gift and how competitive your spirit is. Also, pairs can be made of a girl who is already in a happy relationship and the one who is competing. This does not mean that girls who are in a relationship should not compete, it is up to you to specify the rules of the game.
The goal of this game is to collect as many male signatures on the T-shirt as possible. When you approach the guy explain that it is a bachelorette party game competition and that you need his help to win.
Of course, it’s up to you how you approach, and try to collect as many signatures as possible and have a lot of fun.
Let’s warm up the atmosphere at the bachelorette party! You need a little skill for this game.
The girls should be divided into two teams and stand in lines. The game begins with the first girls from each team placing a balloon between their legs. Then they should pass on the balloon to the next girls in the line, without using their hands. Also, they must not jump out of the line or go out of line.
The team that manages to pass the balloon to the last person in the line first wins. For all this effort and commitment, the winning team should certainly be congratulated, and some adequate reward wouldn’t hurt.
Fun in the City!
This bachelorette party game is suitable for a place in the city, a public place where you will be exposed to the eyes of others. BUT, before departure, when the atmosphere warms up a bit, let each of you make a list of funny tasks that the bride and other girls would have to do during the bachelorette party.
The era of technology has equipped us with mobile phones, and therefore with pretty good cameras. Record every funny moment, and there will be an abundance of them for sure. Or better yet, let the photographer do it, so you don’t get overwhelmed and have cool photos to enjoy years later. Definitely a good way to make a turnaround and have a crazy and unusual bachelorette party!
Who Knows the Future Bride Best?
You will find out how much each of the girls knows about the future bride after this game. This bachelorette party game consists of the future bride writing as many questions as possible, from personal to those funny ones. The girls then take the questions out of the hat one by one, and the one who knows the most answers is the winner!
Of course, those slightly more spicy questions are also allowed … And of course, agree in advance what the adequate prize for the winner will be. Something nice and motivating. Great warm-up game for the bachelorette party …
Don’t forget – a bachelorette party serves to have a good time together, enjoy, relax, and laugh as much as possible. Go crazy, hang out, take photos, and make the most beautiful memory you will remember forever!
