So your best friend is getting married. Congratulations, that leaves you with the daunting task of organizing a bachelorette party that the guests and future bride will remember for a lifetime!
It might be a monumental task, but it’s also an amazing chance to celebrate someone who’s always been there for you.
Don’t panic, we’ve got you covered with a list of 5 bachelorette party ideas that will wow your attendees.
A super popular modern idea is to hold an injectables party, where guests can treat themselves to larger lips or banish brow lines while enjoying a fab cocktail. Empire Medical Training’s guide to Botox competitors tells you about botox fillers and the alternatives so be sure to ask your licensed aesthetician what your options are. If you’re planning an injectables party, make sure to schedule it a good few days before the wedding, just in case of unlikely side-effects, such as swelling.
2. Paint & Sip Class
The popularity of paint and sip classes has skyrocketed over the past few years. Instead of hitting the club, mix things up a bit by showing up at your local art studio for a vino and some painting. A charismatic host will help guide even the most nervous painters and once the wine starts flowing, everyone tends to loosen up. For a special bachelorette twist, request that everyone paints a caricature of the bride and groom. Or, if you’re feeling cheeky, you might even request a nude male model be available for a spot of life drawing.
3. Pole Dancing Class
For a unique bachelorette party that combines fun and fitness, you can’t go past a pole class. Not only does it offer the bride a chance to brush up on some saucy moves before the wedding night, but it’s also a great way to build body confidence and core strength. Many ladies would love to try this modern workout but are too nervous to go alone, so organising a group event can help your guests discover an awesome new hobby they’d not have otherwise experienced!
4. Old-School Sleepover
Online bridal bible The Knot found that roughly 50% of party attendees spend upwards of $300 on the celebration. For a cost-effective option, you can’t go past a nostalgic sleep over. Make a playlist of all the top songs from the year the bride met her groom, scour Pinterest for some amazing nibbles ideas and stock up on alcohol. Don’t forget to play all the classic sleepover games, like Truth or Dare. For an extra special touch, get all attendees to chip in for a cute, monogrammed set of PJs for the bride.
5. Cocktail Class
Forget cooking classes, why not spend your bestie’s bachelorette party learning to mix fun and fruity drinks? It’s a great excuse to knock back a few shots while learning a new skill. To spice things up, start a competition between attendees to create a signature cocktail for the wedding that best represents the happy couple. This way, when you decide to get together again, you can just go to a liquor store and then create cocktails to party at home.
Hosting a successful bachelorette party doesn’t need to be nerve-wracking. If you’re still looking for a good venue, have a look at this small party even space in Calgary. With a little creativity and a splash of dedication, you can put together an amazing night to wow your bride-to-be!
