Alternative Bachelorette Party Ideas
January 27th, 2014
Most bachelorette parties are all about drinking, partying, and wearing embarrassing accessories. You don't have to go that route, though.
More and more brides and their friends are opting for non-traditional bachelorette parties that are more suited to their personalities.
Even the gifts that you give to the bride-to-be can be unusual; there is no rule that you must present her with lingerie. Check out these alternative bachelorette party ideas to help you plan.
Alternative #1 - Cooking Lesson Party
Does the bride-to-be love to cook a gourmet meal? Or does she have no experience in the kitchen, but wants to learn? Either way, a cooking lesson party could be a great choice for her bachelorette party.
You can hire a chef to give a cooking lesson to your whole group, either at the chef's kitchen or in yours. Bring some bottles of wine or champagne to drink while you are cooking, and then eat the results of your hard work.
Ask the chef to teach you a complete meal, from appetizers and salad all the way through dessert. This can become your go-to meal for girls' night in. Atthe end of the evening, you can shower the bride-to-be with kitchen inspired gifts.
Alternative #2 - Spa Treatment Party
Most bachelorette parties leave you exhausted and puffy-eyed the next day. Try a spa treatment party for a relaxing change of pace.
Get in touch with your local spa, and ask if they would be willing to open up after hours on the Friday evening prior to the wedding (or whatever date works for your group).
All of the bridesmaids and the bride can visit the spa for relaxing spa treatments to get ready for the wedding.
If it is alright with the spa staff, you can bring in some snacks, like cheese and crackers and a few bottles of wine. Enjoy your glass of wine while you get a manicure and pedicure.
The guests can all chip in for a special gift for the bride, like a certificate for a spa day to use after the chaos of the wedding has died down. Complete the gift with a silky robe and plush slippers.
Alternative #3 - Yoga Retreat
If your bride-to-be is a fitness nut, consider a yoga retreat. Grab all of her closest pals, and head out to a yoga center where you can participate in yoga sessions, eat healthy food, and relax while enjoying each others' company.
This is a great option for right before the wedding. The bride is probably feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, and a yoga retreat is a great way to help her relax and focus on the things that are really important to her.
Bridesmaids can present the bride with gifts like a new yoga mat, yoga socks, or a certificate for yoga classes to use after the wedding.
Alternative #4 - Shopping Trip
When you spend time with the bride-to-be, do you spend it shopping?
Many girlfriends enjoy their best quality time together while shopping, so why not make a big shopping trip the centerpiece of the bachelorette party?
Hire a limo to drive everyone to your favorite shopping destinations, and plan for a special lunch or dinner at a great restaurant nearby.
The chauffeur will take care of driving, parking, and loading your shopping bags while you enjoy yourself.
These inspiring and unusual bachelorette party ideas will help you to plan a special party for the bride-to-be.
