Before a couple gets married, they may decide to have bachelor/bachelorette parties and get together with their friends for one last hurrah. Traditionally, yes, these are associated with drinking and getting wild and crazy…but that is not for everyone! If you’re looking for some unique bachelorette party planning ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
Unique Bachelorette Party Ideas
The point of a bachelorette party is to get away, stop thinking about the stress of the wedding and have some fun, and what better what to do that than to become one with nature?! Groups can rough it out in the wild, while also enjoying fishing or hiking, or those who are feeling less adventurous can go glamping for the weekend.
On the other hand, we have a day at the spa, where the bride-to-be, her bridesmaids and her friends can get massages and facials and other treatments that help everyone relax before the big day.
Sometimes people still want to drink during these events – just without going too crazy – and in that case, we suggest touring a winery or a brewery. These tours can be fun and educational, as groups can try out different drinks together.
Something fun and unique is playing mini golf! This is a low-key way to bring loved ones together, and experienced golfers (or those who want to eat/drink while playing) could even go to a place like Topgolf, too.
Dinner and a Movie
It may just sound like a date idea, but another casual way to celebrate before a wedding is to go out to dinner and then maybe catch a movie.
For a more elaborate evening, we recommend a scavenger hunt. You can put a creative person like the bride’s mother or maid of honor, in charge of setting something up around your house or a park, or you can bring in professionals to send you all off on a hunt around town!
If you just happen to have a active bridal party, or want a fun activity to get your energy up, a group workout could be fun to do, too!
And before getting married, some people are thinking about after the wedding, when they go home to start a new life, full of new adventures and new daily routines – such as cooking and eating meals together. That being said, a cooking class is a unique way for women to bond and to pick up some new skills.
Last but not least, we encourage you all to think about having a joint bachelor/bachelorette party. This night or weekend does not have to be about squeezing in the last bit of fun you’ll have in your single life. Instead, it can be about doing some group activity with your bridesmaids, your siblings, your guy’s groomsmen and your future spouse! Just make sure the party suits you both and makes you both happy…That’s all that matters.
