Bachelorette Party Ideas
The bachelorette party is a bride-to-be's chance to have
a great time with her closest friends. It can be as big or
small as she'd like, and is typically organized by her bridesmaids
and/or maid or matron of honor. Gifts aren't strictly necessary,
but will likely be welcomed.
While it isn't exactly encouraging to think of a bachelorette
party as the bride's final night of freedom, you should make
it your goal to show her the best time possible. That doesn't
mean you have to drag her off to Chippendale's with a fistful
of dollar bills (although if that's her cup of tea, you should
certainly do so). Here are some out of the ordinary ideas
for a bachelorette party she'll remember fondly.
Weekend in the Wilderness
If the bride-to-be is a nature lover, consider renting a
cabin in the woods for a night or two. Guests can crash in
bunk beds or sleeping bags for a retro slumber party vibe.
Try to rent a cabin with a hot tub out on the deck -- the
guest of honor will have a great time soaking in the suds
as she breathes the fresh pine-scented air and sips her favorite
beverage in the company of her favorite girlfriends.
For the adventurous bride, a rock-climbing expedition, parasailing
adventure or white-water rafting trip may be just the thing
to quell those pre-wedding jitters. Keep in mind, however,
that this will limit the guest list to only her bravest friends.
If it's in the budget, consider renting a beach bungalow
for a night of bonfires, bon bons and Bacardi. If not, make
a day of it, complete with gourmet picnic lunch, cold beer/soda
and plenty of sunblock.
For the bride who loves to shake her groove thing, a night
of dancing is a no-brainer. Just be sure to designate a driver
before embarking on a night of club-hopping -- or hire a chauffeur
so that everyone can behave as irresponsibly as she wants!
Let the lady try her luck before taking the plunge. Book
a suite at one of the Strip's hottest hotels and take Sin
City by storm!
Treat the bride and her buddies to a day
at the spa.
After enjoying a massage, facial or pedicure, the gals can
bond while cooking in the sauna or lounging around in plush
