For some planning inspiration, we’ve rounded up 20 of our favorite bachelorette party ideas. Whether it’s fun activities, unique details, or helpful apps, we’ve got some great ideas for the perfect bachelorette party!
1. Snag cute party pins for the whole I Do Crew
Alright y’all, how ADORABLE are these bachelorette party pins?! Our bride tribe loves these simple, cute party favors. You can also choose from a variety of other fun shapes and themes if wine isn’t your thing.
2. Dress up the party pad with Pinterest-worthy decorations
There is no need for naughty bachelorette party decorations or accessories anymore. Consider prettier, Pinterest-worthy décor that the Future Mrs. will not be embarrassed to show her grandma. We love pretty banners, tissue paper tassel garlands, and balloons, of course!
3. Stay in a house instead of a hotel
The whole group could stay together at a house your group rents through Airbnb or HomeAway instead of a hotel. Additionally, you’ll get other benefits, such as a kitchen, perfect for stocking up on snacks, or even a pool you can fill with all the swan floats you’d like.
4. Work up a sweat with a private spin class
Sweat it out at your favorite cycling studio before the wedding with a private spin class! If you want to make it even more festive, request a bachelorette party-themed ride with songs like Drunk in Love and Single Ladies. Before partying, the bride-to-be will love burning a few calls. Where should you book? Almost all cycling studios offer private classes – just ask! The Rush Cycle in San Diego, KRANK in Nashville, and Love Cycle Studio in Austin are our favorites in the area.
5. Pick a theme – and fun phrase – for all the party swag
Party favors, accessories, and decorations are the best ways to make a bachelorette weekend feel special. Where does all the fun stuff come from? Create a fun party theme and coordinating phrase to tie everything together!
6. Include hangover survival kits in the guest gift bags
What’s the biggest buzzkill at a bachelorette party? Friday night left me with a killer hangover. Give each guest a hangover kit with recovery essentials like Advil, tums, makeup wipes, and breath mints in a cute bag. Make sure the hotel or house has plenty of water and Gatorade. Beer is one of the main reasons for people hangover. As these days, people want more than their average drinking beer. They want something that packs flavor with a decent ABV. This is one of the many reasons why stout beer alone will be worth over $15 billion by 2027. So, try best food with stout beer whenever you plan your next bachelorette party.
7. Use apps like Splitwise or Venmo to easily split costs
It is no longer necessary to spend 30 minutes after dinner figuring out how much everyone owes (THANK GOD). Last but not least, there are apps like Venmo and Splitwise that make splitting costs easier. Splitwise allows you to track expenses throughout the weekend and calculate how much each person owes – and to whom – at the end of the weekend. Genius!
