Bachelorette parties are known for being raunchy and bawdy as a celebration of the bride’s last nights as a single woman. However, if that kind of bachelorette party is not something that the bride would particularly enjoy, you may want to plan a classier event. You can plan a classy bachelorette party that everyone will enjoy with these fun bachelorette party ideas.

Tea Time Is One Of The Most Classy Bachelorette Party Ideas

For an elegant twist on the usual bachelorette party, consider throwing a formal tea party for the bride and all of her friends. Call local restaurants to see if they serve a formal tea, or rent a venue where you can set up rental tables and chairs for a bachelorette party. Serve finger sandwiches, tea, coffee, and cake, and honour the bride by handing out small, cream-coloured note cards for the guests to write well wishes, advice, and anecdotes on. Place those cards in an album to give to the bride at the end of the tea party.

A Good Old-Fashioned Slumber Party Is One Of The Most Unique Bachelorette Party Ideas

If you want to make a special night for the bride and her bridal shower, but don’t have the money to spend on a formal dinner or drinks, throw a bachelorette slumber party for the favourite bride-to-be instead of a wild night at the club. Invite all of the attendees and the family members to wear their pyjamas, and mix up some margaritas and mojitos for the night.

Paint nails, while you watch wedding movies like “Father of the Bride” or “My Best Friend’s Wedding” with plenty of snacks, is the best way to have some fun at the final fiesta before the wedding day and married life. Play throwback board games like “Dream Date” and even prank call the groom before you go to bed. Offer a breakfast of fresh fruit and coffee in the morning, and gift all of the attendees with a bottle of nail polish and a nail file as party favours when the party is over.

Spa Bachelorette Party Ideas For Your Best Friends

Instead of heading out to the bar for a night of debauchery and questionable behaviour, try something a little classier and a lot more indulgent, by bringing all of the girls to the spa. You could all get a facial, or do manicures and pedicures.

Make up a menu of different treatments that you, as the host, are willing to pay for, or see if the attendees are willing to pay for their treatments, as well as pitch in to pay for the bride. What better way to relax before the big day than by enjoying a massage? Top it off with lunch at a favourite restaurant and you have the recipe for a classy bachelorette party.

If the bride-to-be doesn’t want a super rowdy, bar-hopping bachelorette party, but loves to be pampered, consider a spa bachelorette party. Following are ideas for both the budget-conscious and the budget-free to indulge in a little pampering before the big day.

Planning A Spa Bachelorette Party Is The Perfect Way To Have A Good Time

Typically, the maid of honour plans the bachelorette party, but she should always get input from the bride-to-be to ensure that the bachelorette party will reflect an activity she’ll enjoy. Also, the maid of honour should obtain a list of names and contact information from the bride or girls she wants on the invite list (make sure these girls are also invited to the wedding).

If your bride indicates that a spa bachelorette party sounds like a great idea, then decide what type of budget you’re working with. For instance, if most of the bridesmaids are low on funds, consider a spa bachelorette party that doesn’t involve paying for a luxurious spa weekend.

Finally, discuss possible dates with the bride and avoid the night before the wedding. Ideally, the bachelorette party should take place anywhere from one to four weeks before the wedding.

Budget-Conscious And The Best Bachelorette Party Ideas For Your Bride Tribe

If you’re on a budget, check with a few local salons for group rates on manicures and pedicures, because these are the most affordable spa treatments and still allow for a carefree, girls-only afternoon. Afterwards, you can show off your pampered hands and feet in sundresses and open-toed shoes by going for dinner or a night on the town.

If going to a local salon isn’t possible, or your bride wants a more casual spa bachelorette party, consider hiring an aesthetician and/or masseur (perhaps more than one depending on the size of the party) to come to the home of whoever will host the spa bachelorette party. After they leave, continue the fun with an all-night slumber party with games like Truth or Dare and American Idol karaoke.

Finally, if hiring professionals is still too expensive for a meagre budget, consider doing each other’s nails while you blast your favourite songs or catch up on the latest gossip. Be sure to have a selection of munchies and drinks (non-alcoholic or alcoholic) so the party can continue as far into the night as you want.

Plan a spa day or weekend that includes lots of pampering for all involved. Call the spa and inquire about group rates for massages, facials, and other services. If going out of town isn’t an option and the local spas just don’t cut, look online for professional aestheticians and masseurs who will come to the bride’s home.

Spa Bachelorette Party Ideas That Go All Out For An Epic Bachelorette Party

If your budget can accommodate a truly first-rate spa bachelorette party, then consider booking your party into a luxurious spa for a weekend of cleansing, purifying, and relaxing. Many spas will still give you a group discount rate and getting away will help ease pre-wedding stress.

If getting away for the weekend isn’t feasible, then do the next best thing and book your spa bachelorette party into a day spa, then go out for dinner and drinks afterwards if you aren’t ready for the party to end.

Conservative Bachelorette Party Ideas For A Themed Bachelorette Party

Some future brides are not as entertained as others by phallic pinatas and male strippers. A bride-to-be like this may require a more low-key bachelorette party. When planning a conservative bachelorette party, the party planner must consider things that will make the bride feel comfortable while also planning activities to entertain her guests.

Cooking Party Is The Perfect Theme Filled With Fun Activities

Plan a cooking party for your closest friends where each guest is asked to find a unique recipe to bring to the party. Ask guests to coordinate so that some will cook the dinner foods while others will prepare desserts. Some party guests of your girls’ night can also bring interesting cocktail recipes to enjoy. Throw in some fun party games to liven things up.

Wine Tasting For A Classy Weekend Is A Fun Way To Have A Great Time

Guests will be asked to wear Audrey Hepburn-esque outfits to a vineyard for a wine tasting for an unforgettable bachelorette bash. Bring trivia cards for some fun bachelorette party activities about the bride to pass around and offer prizes to the most knowledgeable. Ask the bride-to-be to rate her favourite wines and chip in for her favourite one as a gift to her and her groom-to-be.

Bachelorette Party Games For An Unforgettable Bachelorette Party

  • The Bridal Gown Game: Guests will split up into teams and create bridal gowns out of toilet paper. The bride will choose the winner.
  • Know the Bride: Guests will play a trivia game based on questions about the bride. Tally up the scores and award the gal with the most correct answers with a prize.
  • Who Am I?: Ask guests to fill out a survey asking for little-known facts about themselves. For example: Who did you dance with at junior prom? The bride will draw the surveys out of a box and attempt to guess who it belongs to. For each correct answer, she may open a gift. For each incorrect answer, the guest to whom the survey belongs may tell an embarrassing or funny story about the bride.
