What Is A Bachelorette Party?

A bachelorette party is a party that a soon-to-be-married woman throws for herself before her wedding. It can be a vacation, a weekend getaway, a spa day, or any other activity that the bride-to-be and her friends decide on. It’s a time when the bride-to-be can let go of her responsibilities and focus on having fun with her friends. A bachelorette party is not a wedding reception; it is not a time for guests to shower the bride-to-be with gifts. It is a time for her to celebrate with her friends. Traditionally, bridesmaids throw the bash for the bride-to-be before her wedding, often just after the engagement. It’s the last hurrah before the big day where the bride-to-be can let loose with her best friends before tying the knot. It can be anything from a big weekend-long extravaganza to a low-key dinner with a group of close friends. It can be as large or small as you want, and it can be as wild or tame as you want.


Decide On A Theme For Your Bachelorette Party

Before you decide on the type of party you want to throw, you need to decide on a theme. This is where your imagination comes in. There are endless party themes to choose from. You can go with a popular theme like superheroes or Disney princesses or choose something a bit more outside the box, like a candy land party. As you are deciding on a theme, keep in mind the activities you can do at the party. For example, if you choose a princess theme, you could have a princess spa day. Do you want to go with a classic, elegant theme? Or a wild, debaucherous theme? You can decide on a theme that goes with the bride-to-be’s personality. Maybe she’s normally very calm and collected but is secretly a wild child. Maybe she’s normally loquacious but wants a quiet, low-key getaway. Whatever the theme, make sure you follow through with the decorations, games, and activities. 

  • Elegant Bachelorette Party - An elegant bachelorette party is the perfect way to celebrate the classy girl in your life. A sleek, modern theme can look stunning at any venue, from a rooftop lounge to a swanky hotel. You can pick a color palette, decorations, food and drink, and entertainment that goes with the theme. 
  • Wild Bachelorette Party - A wild bachelorette party is a great way to celebrate a girl who is secretly a bit of a badass. If she’s the type to rock a pink mohawk and loves some punk rock, this is the theme for her. 
  • Low-Key Bachelorette Party - A low-key bachelorette party is perfect for someone who prefers to keep things private and on the down low. You can choose a color palette that keeps the party private, such as black, purple, or red.
