Show her one big Girl's Night of Fun before her big day... Throw her a
Bachelorette party she will never forget with these free tips and planning
ideas and find the perfect Bachelorette party supplies, decorations, party
favors and more!
There is no better occasion than a
bachelorette party to let
loose and have some wild and crazy fun with your girlfriends! Decide now
whether you will be holding the blast at a nightclub, your home, or another
location. If its at a location away from home, it will cut
down on your decorating needs, but may not be as personal. For the most
intimate surroundings, choose your own living room! To make the party
memorable, why not choose a theme and build your evening around it?
some theme ideas:
Kitchen theme (include recipes with gift)
If you decide to go with a theme, make sure your invitations work well with
it. For example, if you choose the Round-the-Clock theme, check out our As
Time Goes By Invitation and set the clock differently for each guest.
Explain on the inside of the invitation that they are to bring a gift that
the bride will use at that given time of day. People have been known to be
very creative with this!
A cute general invitation for a bachelorette party would be to create your
own using a collection of pictures of the bride. Try to get several pictures
of her with previous boyfriends and make a collage of them on the front of
the invitation. On the inside of the card write something like, "Sally is
finally settling down, let's celebrate this long-awaited event with a bash!"
If you will be holding your party at home, here are a couple
of suggestions for fun activities:
Have everyone bring pictures of their first boyfriends - have guests pick
whose boyfriend goes with whom.
Hire a fortune teller to come in and predict everyone's future!
Play poker and tell jokes (just like the guys would).
If you feel
especially daring, pull out some stogies!
FRUITFUL ENTERTAINMENT - You will need to get each of your guests a banana
and some extras for this one. Lay out some Playgirl magazines, open to the
centerfold of course, and have the guest carve the examples penis out of the
banana with their teeth! Pictures of this one are highly entertaining. Have
the guests vote for their favorite one and hand the winner a prize.
Cucumbers also work well for this!
If you will be going out on the town to party, here are a few fun ideas to
make the bride-to-be turn three shades of red!!
Adorn the honoree with the
Bride Hat and Bride T-shirt
On the back of the T-shirt have each of her friends write one piece of
advice for the honeymoon.
Make sure that these are obnoxious and
embarrassing things to make this really fun! Another idea to do with the
T-shirt is to tie Lifesavers™ to the shirt and she has to collect a dollar
from guys to eat the Lifesaver™ - "A suck for a buck"!
Attach a large teddy bear to the bride-to-be using handcuffs. This is great
fun for her to drag around all night just like the "old ball and chain"
Send your friend on a Treasure Hunt. Have her gather the following items
from each bar that you visit that night:
Book of Matches
Here are some other things that you could have the bride do throughout the
Get 5 guys to buy her a drink
Get a guy to serenade her
Get 10 DJ's to play her favorite song
IT IS ALL IN A NAME
Take a white T-shirt and in large letters write BRIDE on it. Now is smaller
lettering write the names of different guys all over the shirt. The bride
must go up to men in the bars and out on the town and ask them if they can
find their name on the shirt. She must then get them to sign the shirt as
proof. The object is to find all of the guys names. For each one that is
leftover the Bride must do a shot. For fun you have to throw in some
toughies like Wendell and such.
This is a fun way to get the party started! As the guests arrive at the
designated meeting place have everyone take a piece of paper and write a
task for the Bachelorette to do that evening at the top. At the bottom each
guest can write a special sentiment to the Bride and sign it.
Kiss a bald man with a tattoo.
Do a "blow job" shot.
Find a guy with the same name as the Groom and kiss him.
During the evening while the Bride accomplishes the task take a picture.
When you get the photos back match them up with the piece of paper with the
task and make a memory book with the incriminating photos. You may also want
to include a copy of the invitations as well. Makes for a great laugh
Bachelorette Party Food Ideas:
Again, many bachelorette parties occur out on the town so no
planning for food and drinks needs to be done. If you will be celebrating at
home with a card game, movie night, or another activity, here are some
suggestions for munchies:
Create a Mexican bar for guests to make their own tacos, nachos, etc.
Set up a table loaded with various dips and stuff to dip! (Crackers and
cheeses, chips and salsa, etc.)
A potato bar is always a favorite for the female guest list!
Soup and salad is a lighter alternative to a big meal.
Pasta, pasta, and more pasta! Throw away those worries about the dress
fitting and enjoy the carbs!
Bachelorette Party Decorations:
Obviously, if you will be going out, you do not need to do much
in terms of decorating, but if you are holding the party in your home or an
event room you will want to add some decorating items to the room. Many
times the host will choose to decorate based on the colors of the upcoming
wedding. This is a nice touch and can be achieved easily by using a couple
of inexpensive products like balloons and gossamer.
Bachelorette Party Favors
A fun way to give out favors during a bachelorette party is to
periodically give them out during the evening to aid in the partying or make
the bride feel even more embarrassed at the attention she is receiving! Here
are some ideas
