Bachelorette Party Ideas

How To Plan A Bachelorette Party


Spring is right around the corner and wedding season is upon us. It’s that time of the year again when brides want to get all their girls together for a weekend away to celebrate their upcoming marriage. We wanted to provide some bachelorette party ideas to celebrate your best friend and soon-to-be bride.


First, when planning a bachelorette party, you need to land on a destination. Does the bride want to have a destination weekend getaway or a weekend in their hometown? Does she like the beach, mountains, or dessert? The bridesmaids should focus on making this weekend all about the bride and where she would want to go. Is she a homebody or does she want to travel and have a getaway weekend with her best friends? Some hot top five bachelorette destination ideas are Austin, TX, Scottsdale, AZ, Nashville, TN, Miami, FL, and Asheville, NC! We hope some of these ideas give you a starting point on planning.


Plan, plan, plan! Do not make the mistake of going anywhere without a proper agenda for each day. If the bride likes surprises, maybe add in a surprise event during your weekend. Nonetheless, the last thing you want to do is go on a bachelorette party and not have a proper itinerary on what each day entails. Also, a great idea is to make sure to make reservations to restaurants, bar crawls, bar cycles, classes, etc. No one wants to wait in line at a restaurant and keep from your fun activities for the rest of the night.


Once in the house, hotel room, or wherever you are staying for the weekend have some fun and decorate the place. This will make the bride feel loved and special that you took the time to decorate the house. You can decorate with some balloon arches, photo backdrops, themed plates, napkins, cups, straws, banners, diamond ring float, confetti poppers, fringe backdrops, photo props, piñata, etc. These fun decorations ideas will make the bride love you even more!


Planning an agenda for the weekend helps everyone to know what to bring and wear. It is still trendy to have bridesmaids dress in one color and the bride dress in white for a fun night out and for a photo opportunity! Be creative with this, some people go with everyone wearing black or pink. If you want to be different and unique pick a different color to wear out!

Consider a Gift

The whole girl gang should consider going in on a gift for the bride-to-be at the bachelorette party. It can be very thoughtful and appreciated to receive a personal gift from her favorite group of girls. A gift to consider gifting is a full photo album of everyone sending in some favorite pictures of them and the bride with a personal message wishing the bride well in her upcoming marriage. This is a very thoughtful idea that I promise she will cherish, love, and keep forever!
