Although my wedding is 206 days away (who’s counting?) conversations of my bachelorette party have already begun. Jack has a good idea of what he wants to do, but I am literally clueless on what to even consider! I know it’s up to the bridesmaids to plan and conquer, but they have generously allowed me to have some input in the decision process (unlike my friend who was completely shocked when a male stripper showed up on the day of her bachelorette party… Hmm perhaps I shouldn’t have a say…). We were throwing ideas around and I thought this would be a great post for this week! Perhaps some of you are in the same dilemma I am and need some inspiration, or maybe you had a great B. party and want to share the idea! Whatever the case, enjoy five of the ideas that my friends and I came up with and feel free to share in the comment section down below!
Option 1. Risk it all!
Although I am not a big gambler, I am a fan of a delicious dinner and an entertaining show. We are going to look up the show calendars of some nearby casinos and see if there is anything good coming up. We would get a nice room, go to the show, lose some money and, most importantly, have a great time in each others company.
Option 2. Thunder From Down Under
This idea spawned from idea #1 as TDU usually tours casinos. If you have never heard of The Thunder From Down Under you will thank me for this post. Think of Chip n’ Dale Dancers but add more muscle and an Aussie accent! I have never been but apparently it’s a bachelorette must!
Option 3. The Great Outdoors
Now, this idea is usually suggested for the bachelor party, but who says girls can’t rough it out? Gather up your bridesmaids and best of friends and hightail it out of the city for a relaxing girls weekend at a friends cabin. Don’t have a cabin? You can rent one! No cabins in sight? Rent a hotel suite and split the cost with all who join in. Getting there is half the fun, so if you have to drive a bit enjoy every second and take detours! This is by far my favorite idea so far.
Option 4. Candid Cameras
I know this sounds corny but I would love to do a photo shoot with all my best friends (after all, unless you’re a celeb, photographers never follow you around)! Perhaps this could happen while we have a spa day or get our make up done as we prepare to head out for a night on the town. After all, its precious moments with our friends and family we want to treasure forever right?
Option 5. Dance Party
Now I’m not the most coordinated person in the world, so when my maid of honor suggested Pole Dancing Lessons for my bachelorette party, I somewhat cringed at the thought of me attempting to be sexy. But after thinking about how fun (not to mention hilarious) it would be, I have warmed up to the idea. Plus, it is pretty affordable to go to the lesson or have someone come to you house.
Again, this is only stage one in the planning process of my bachelorette party. There is a lot of inspiration on the Internet and I am already interviewing all of my wife- friends to see what they did, and don’t forget that I would love to hear your ideas!
Who knows, I could end up using it in a future post. Be sure to check out these other great posts about bachelorette (and bachelor) party ideas.
