Bachelorette Party Ideas: The Ultimate Guide


Famously known as the bride-to-be’s farewell into married life, bachelorette parties are all about one thing only—having a blast with your favorite ladies. However, there are two non-negotiables for making a genuinely memorable bachelorette celebration:

Rule Number One

The maid of honor should make the entire bachelorette day personal to the bride. After all, if you’re the maid of honor to be, you know your BFF the best, so tailor the party and its details to create a custom-made celebration for her.

Rule Number Two

Throw out the window all the traditional previously seen bachelorette party ideas and get creative with your friends. A bachelorette party can be anything you want it to be!

Here are four bachelorette party ideas to have a blast with your friends and bid your farewells to the Miss that’s about to become a Mrs.

Host A Murder Mystery

If you and your girls are into playing games and solving mysteries, you can host a murder mystery game. In this game, a gullible victim will fall foul to a dreadful crime, and it’s your and your friends’ job to find the clues and comb out the killer.

After you’re done solving the mystery, you can sit down for a cocktail or five with your friends, deal a round of simple card game or engage in jigsaw puzzle as it’s the perfect game for a group of any number where you can casually chat while playing and enjoy a fun-filled bachelorette party.

Book A Spa For The Weekend

Booking a bachelorette party at a local spa for the weekend might be the perfect getaway for the bride who loves a bit of luxury in her life. Is there a better way to send her off before her big day than by getting some rest and relaxation while sipping on Moet at a fancy hotel?

Regardless of your location, there are many bachelorette-friendly spas all across the U.S., many of which offer fantastic packages for bachelorette celebrations.

Throw A Cowgirl Bachelorette Party

After all, what is a bachelorette celebration without the celebrated pink cowgirl hat? There’s something about donning a cowboy hat and boots that brings out the fun—regardless of where you plan the bachelorette party to take place.

The cowgirl bachelorette theme party is particularly a good idea for a desert bash, which is the perfect location for enjoying that good old wild west vibe with a twist!

Makeup Masterclass Party

Is there a single better way to glam up the bachelorette party (and learn some new skills along the way), than with a makeup masterclass?

Makeup artists, stores, and salons in most cities in the U.S. offer makeup classes for groups. After completing the course, you can go one step further and opt for a glam photo shoot and get some super fun snaps while you’re at it.
