Bachelorette parties can range between a single night out on the town, to a whole day of activities, or weekend-long affairs that can be very costly for all involved. Yet this doesn’t need to be the case.
If you are looking to throw a bachelorette party but want to keep costs down, you can do so without having to compromise on quality—it just takes some thinking outside the box. It could be that you are feeling stuck for ideas, but there are many things out there you can do that will ensure it’s a memorable party for the bride. Here are some top ideas for an affordable bachelorette party.
An At-Home Dinner Party
Dinner parties are always a good idea. It is the perfect opportunity for everyone to get dressed up, slip into their heels, and feel glamorous for an evening while feasting on delicious food. You can cook the food yourself, and rent the chairs or decorations from Marinaj who caters for events at home.
If you don’t want to cook, they also provide catering services so all you need to worry about is dining and having a good time with the girls. Be sure to take plenty of photos throughout the evening!
A Slumber Party
Who said you were ever too old for a slumber party? Slumber parties are a great way to get your closest girls together before the wedding and enjoy the fun and carelessness of your childhoods.
You could all wear your favorite pajamas (or get matching ones for the occasion), snack on cookie dough, the bride’s favorite takeout food, and drink cocktails. You can swap stories, take photos on an old polaroid, and watch movies!
Time Out Together
Sometimes all you need for a great bachelorette party is to spend time together. From window shopping to see the latest trends, to hiking up a mountain for a picnic and taking in the beautiful views, the main point is that you are all together. It is a great way to make memories before the big day.
Food or Wine Tasting
If the bride-to-be would appreciate a variety of foods, why not consider a food or wine tasting for their bachelorette party? It can be a good idea to hire a designated driver to drive you to and from the venue if there are a few of you as this way you can all enjoy a glass of wine or two with dinner or during the tasting.
Why not combine the bachelorette party with getting pampered ahead of the big day? You could all get your nails done, get rid of any pre-wedding stress with a massage, and spend the day in a spa. What more could you want? It’s guaranteed to be a hit with all involved.
A games night is a great idea that is sure to be fun for everyone. You can decide the sorts of games you want to play ahead of time and how raunchy (or not!) these might be. Play games such as truth or dare, pin the lips on the bachelor, and many more.
When planning the bachelorette keep in mind the group that will be invited. You want to ensure the activity is something that everyone will enjoy for the best and smoothest possible day. You could either do one idea or combine a couple, just do your research ahead of time.
When it comes to bridesmaids gifts, and planning for how you want the wedding entourage to look, make sure you look at everything from the dresses, to finding the right wedding bracelets. Finding the right combination of accessories doesn’t have to be difficult, especially if you have your bridesmaids help you decide!
