15 Unique Bachelorette Party ideas

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! 

What is a bachelorette party?

A bachelorette party is a party held for a bride-to-be prior to her wedding day. These parties are typically thrown by friends and family members of the soon-to-wed couple and include a number of activities designed to make the bride feel like she’s still single.

Who plans the bachelorette party?

The bachelorette party is traditionally planned and organized either by the maid of honor or her best friend. Depending on the wedding party and the bride’s wishes, it might even fall to friends. Whatever the case, the bachelorette party is typically one of the most important events leading up to a wedding.

Who pays for the bachelorette party?

It is usually the case that the entire bridal party pays for the bachelorette, but this depends on the type of bachelorette party you are throwing. For example, if you as the bride to be decide that you want to go abroad for your bachelorette party, you would expect each individual person to front the costs themselves. On the other hand, if you decide to have a more low-key party in your hometown, you could get all your friends and family to pool their money together for one big night out.

Who to invite to the bachelorette party

Who is invited to the bachelorette party is entirely up to the bride. However, there are some general rules to follow as to who will get an invite. You have to invite the entire bridal party as they are the most important people for the bride. 

It is also customary to invite both the bride's mother and the groom's mother, although, you might want to only extend their invite to the sophisticated portion of the evening.  In addition to these core players, you can also invite female friends and family members of the bride. 

When do you have a bachelorette party?

Choosing a date for the bachelor/bachelorette party often falls into one of two categories. You either have it very close to the wedding or a month or two before the wedding. 

The first option is choosing a date that's close enough to the wedding that guests can make the trip without much planning. For example, if the wedding is taking place over Memorial Day weekend, guests could plan to arrive on May 24th and depart on June 2nd.

The second option is choosing a date far enough away that guests don't feel pressured to attend. In fact, many couples choose to have the party a few months before the wedding because they know that some guests won't even consider attending, which makes things easier to organize.

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.

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.

11. Rent a Limo

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!


12. Make it Personal

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.

13. Go On a Roadtrip!

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!

14. Ask for Help When you Need It

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!

15. Go all-in for the perfect bachelorette party

Why not go all in, we only get married once, or twice or 😋. Go to 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.

Bachelorette party gifts 

Most brides don’t expect gifts at their bachelorette party, instead gifts are usually given at a bridal shower. It is a gift enough that you are attending and the bride knows that you are spending a lot of money just to be there to celebrate with her. 

However, if you are thinking of bringing a gift to this special occasion, here are some suggestions:

  • Personalized clothing or tote bags
  • Jewellery 
  • Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue
  • Novelty gifts
  • Keepsakes
  • Alcohol

Bachelorette party decorations

When it comes to bachelorette party decorations, the more outrageous the better. Most bachelorette parties have custom decorations that celebrate the bride and groom, often with cut outs of the grooms face plastered on the walls. 

You can also have all the traditional party decorations such as balloons, streamers and banners. The decorations you choose should fit the theme of your party so if you are throwing a sophisticated bachelorette party, choose more understated decorations. Alternatively, if you plan to go wild, choose funny novelty decorations that everyone will love.
