Throw The Best Party Ever
As a bride, you thrill over the tiny details that go into wedding planning. However, if you’re the bride's maid of honor, the bachelorette party is your time to show off. Get inspired and start planning the best party with the following 15 unique ideas for bachelorette parties!
Drinking and getting ready before the bachelorette party is usually even more fun than the night itself - so don’t skimp on planning the pregame. Have everyone come over to your place to get ready and pop open a nice glass of bubbly while you get ready. This is also the best time to whip out your matching bridesmaid robes and take the ultimate getting ready Instagram pic. The pregame is crucial because it gives you time to finish planning out the final details of your evening and the opportunity to chat with your ladies before the mayhem commences. Start your bachelorette party on a good note for the best night ever.
Speaking of Instagram, you want to mark your special lady night by crafting a unique hashtag for all of your pictures. This is a great bachelorette party idea, which will make it easier for you and your ladies to find all the pictures posted from your wild evening and it’s a cute addition to any picture. Your hashtag doesn’t only have to be for your hen’s night, you can use it on your wedding day as a special way to get your guests involved online. Not sure where to start when picking a hashtag for your Instagram? Our friends at The Knot have you covered.
Whether you’re going out to the bar or on vacation somewhere, make sure you plan at least one act of rebellion for the bachelorette party. Here are some ideas... Get kicked out of the club, go skinny dipping in your hotel pool, dance on the tables at a restaurant, get a tattoo, just go crazy. The bride is going to want at least one crazy memory of her single days to carry with her into her marriage and the story will be something you and your girlfriends will reminisce on and bond over for life.

This is the perfect plan to reminisce about old times and eat some ice cream and paint your nails as you watch your favorite bachelorette party movies. If you want to make it extra special and you have a little bit more money to spend, renting a hotel room and ordering delicious food are also great ideas. Don’t forget to play Never Have I Ever!
Getting married requires a leap of faith and what better way to prepare the bride before for her big day than by taking her to new heights. By going sky-diving or bungee jumping together, you will live intense emotions and build stronger bonds. You’ll be sure to remember this day forever!
Surprise the bride by taking her to see her favorite band play. Dance and sing to the beat of the music!
If you like playing games, there’s nothing quite like a personalized scavenger hunt to surprise the bride. Make it fun and unique by creating riddles and including dares. Make sure to involve some traveling in the process. Get out of your comfort zone and see where the night takes you!
Nothing says letting loose like screaming and singing along to your all-time favorite songs. You can set this up at home or rent a karaoke room for the night!
Rent a limo for a day and go around town to all your favorite places. Hit the nail salon or go for brunch and mimosas!
Girls typically start planning their weddings from a very young age. Every detail is often already mapped out before you even meet ‘the one’. This usually means the bride isn’t completely clueless as to how she wants to celebrate her bachelorette party. Make sure your plans for your friend’s bachelorette actually include ideas she would enjoy. If she’s more into casual evenings with friends or chill plans (spa day!), don’t plan a wild night out on the town. If she’d prefer not to spend too much money, keep it local instead of planning a two-week getaway to Vegas for her bachelorette party. It’s always important to check in with the bride-to-be to make sure that your plans are matching up with hers and to encourage her to let you know what ideas really excite her and what things she’d maybe rather leave out.
If the bride is adventurous, there’s nothing that says adventure quite like a road trip. Get the bride’s tribe on board and go on a short road trip together. Blast your favorite songs and take the bride to some beautiful secret spots. Don’t forget to bring your camera so that you can show them on the day of the wedding!
A lot of time, effort, money and thought goes into planning a great party - so don’t be afraid to ask for help. Ask your creative friends to help with decorations, or the mother of the bride to arrange transportation for the bachelorette party. It’ll take a load of stress off of your hands and give others the chance to feel a part of the evening as well!
Why not go all in, we only get married once, or twice or 😋. Go to homeaway.com or similar vacation rental sites and find a unique property, a log cabin in the wood, a beach house or simply a loft downtown. Fill the bar and hire a personal chef to take care of all your meals for the weekend. Ask the chef to prepare a few events, such as a Pizza contest, or even better a Private Cooking Class with the bridesmaids.
Turn it into a Chopped Competition, the cooking competition show that is all about skill, speed, and ingenuity. Each week, four chefs compete before a panel of expert judges and turn baskets of mystery ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. Course by course, the chefs will be "chopped" from the competition until only one winner remains.
