Girls just wanna have fun. Especially when their wedding is right around the corner and there are still a million errands to run, things to coordinate and details to finish before THE DAY arrives. And if you’re a DIY bride, your stress level is probably a bit on the high side. What, you say? You need to let loose for a night of fun and games with your best girlfriends?! Well, we’re all for that.
Now, what to wear, where to go? There are tons of ideas (To read about ideas for a bridal shower, check out our post from last week).
Fun Bachelorette Gift Ideas
Start with some cute gifts that will help throughout the night for you and friends –tank tops and buttons with funny sayings on them, a water bottle to stay hydrated in between all of those other drinks you may be having, and matching tote bags to carry all the gear you may accumulate throughout the night.
Theme party? Yes, please! Celebrate the 80s again, full of neon jewelry, side ponytails, funky leggings, electric colored eyeshadow and a healthy dose of Madonna. Get out those feather boas, strings of pearls and maybe a pair of unmentionables or four. Those come in handy for later.
If you want to keep the bachelorette less about a theme party, think about location. A place that has fun indoor and outdoor activities for day and night. Go get high tea at noon and dress up in girly Kentucky Derby-style hats, elegant gloves and romantic dresses. Other creative bachelorette ideas that work for the day – horseback riding, hitting a spa for massages and facials, having a beach barbecue and kayaking, and going for a picnic in the mountains. Nighttime is easy – go out for a delectable dinner (with lots of desserts, of course) to splurge on before going to town on the town.
Its all about the last hoorah before taking the big plunge into marriage, so enjoy every second (and cute guy you see…but remember, don’t touch)!
