When one hears the phrase "bachelorette party" instantly visions of drunk girls, sashes and bars pop into heads. But we're hear to tell you that if you don't want to celebrate your final single hours with the party section of Spencer's, you don't have to. Instead, give one of these unique ideas a shot. You won't regret it.
Every bride needs a day of wedding kit, but finding every item you need can be expensive. Instead, set up a scavenger hunt with the girls. Whoever finds the most items in an hour wins a cool prize (like a bottle of wine or custom shirt).
Boozy tea party
If you still enjoy your alcohol but don't want to go to a loud an obnoxious bar, then this idea is perfect. Remember when you were a little girl and would play tea time? That's the idea, only instead of tea you'll serve your favorite boozy drinks. You can go all out with decorations, a dress code and tasty finger sandwiches if you'd like. The ideas are endless.
We are all about wedding ideas that kill two birds with one stone, and a spa day definitely does the trick. Pamper your girls with massages, manis/pedis and hair appointments the day of. Lots of salons/spas will offer group packages so you can customize the experience for your loves. Just be sure not to schedule any facials as you don't want everyone breaking out before the big day. (If you need a facial be sure to get it at least five days before your big day). If you'd rather skip the price tag and do a DIY spa day, gives these heavenly recipes a try.
You know those never-ending Mary Kay party invites you get? It's that idea, only so much better because it's lingerie and sex toys. This idea is a must if you want the scandalous side of a bachelorette party without the dance club atmosphere. Your girls will enjoy finding new, sexy products and chances are the representative will work with you to get you a great deal on some wedding-night attire. Win/win.
Amusement park weekend
Gather everyone together and head to the nearest amusement park. Book a hotel room and spend your days riding roller coasters, playing laser tag and reliving your youth with bumper cars. Not only is this idea fun and exciting but it also lets everyone blow off some pre-wedding steam. If you really want to impress, head to Disney World or Universal Studios.
We aren't talking about Vegas (although that's definitely an option). Gather your girls and pick a place none of you have been and take a road trip. You could go to Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, The Mall of America, any beach—the options are endless. Just be sure if you go out of the country (Mexico and Canada are only a days drive for some of you!) everyone has enough time to get a passport. Oh, and create play lists. We're talking blasts from the past, jam-worthy hits, because no road trip is complete without you screaming '90s R&B hits at the top of your lungs.
At the end of the day, the biggest component to planning any bachelorette party (or any party in general) is keeping in mind the personality of the one the party is being thrown for. Don't feel weird about opting out of the traditional before-the-wedding shenanigans in place of doing something more low-key.
