We’ve all seen the wild and crazy bachelorette parties (if not been a part of one), but do they ALL have to be like that?
Of course not!!! While a night out on the town may be fun for some brides, there are certainly others who might prefer a different activity to kick off their wedding with their closest girlfriends. We’ve compiled some of our favorite “out-of-the-box” bachelorette party ideas for those ladies who might want something a little less traditional!
“Build a Book”
What a GREAT idea from Cosmo: Buy a scrapbook with removable pages, and mail a page to each bridesmaid to decorate and fill with pictures. If the bridesmaids were all local, this could be a fun get-together idea to get to know each other and bond over a bottle of wine and some crafts! Any bride would be so touched to receive such a thoughtful gift from her best friends during her bachelorette party.
Who says bachelorette parties have to be at the hottest night club? Planning a scavenger hunt could be just as fun to plan as it will be to play! Get creative and come up with some awesome prizes!
Sweat it Out!
For a sporty bride, taking a dance class together may be better than a crazy night at the bar. Bonding over a new experience like going rock climbing or taking a salsa class might be just the thing to tap into your bride’s athletic interests. Not to mention, a dance class might be perfect for everyone to learn some new moves before the wedding! You could even try a class with a fun theme, like Burlesque or Dirty Dancing!
Slumber Party… The “Grown Up” Way
Let’s face it, having an old school slumber party is pretty “been there, done that”. That being said, I think every girl could argue that good drinks, good food, and good friends are all you need for the perfect party. So, why not try a new “grown up” spin on the classic sleepover, and throw a weekend getaway at a local ski lodge or beach house? Complete with sweet treats, yummy cocktails, and an old fashioned movie night!
