Awesome New Bachelorette Party Ideas – Part 1




There are lots of things you can incorporate into a bachelorette party to make the event more unique and fun, but some of the main things to focus on are location, drinks, food, and accessories like bride and bridesmaid shirts.




Don’t schedule the party too far in front of the big day, but don’t wait until the last minute, either. A bachelorette party scheduled too early can feel anticlimactic, whereas one scheduled right before a wedding can bump up against the bride’s nerves, and might interfere with pre-wedding dieting or exercise.

Bachelorette parties don’t have to center around bar crawls and penis paraphernalia. Instead, choose meaningful activities and destinations that are specially tailored to the bride-to-be’s personality.

Instead of the typical booze-fest, plan a party that really reflects the bride’s interests. Here’s what’s hot.




For the Nature-Loving Bride: Glamping

Get the girls together for a luxe weekend escape. We’re talking about a decked-out cabin in the woods or a chic chalet in the mountains. Throw in some fun bachelorette party games, a day trip to a nearby spa or small town, and, of course, some cocktails. And just because you’re out of the city doesn’t mean you can’t eat like you’re at a five-star restaurant: Whip up a batch of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and your other favorites — finish the night with gourmet ice cream sandwiches.

For the Jet-setting Bride: A Destination Bash

There will always be Vegas, but with up-and-coming hot spots like Oregon (yes, you read that right), Puerto Rico (check out their surf camps), and even Montana and Wyoming, now is the time to try something new. Portland’s West End is gaining popularity; while you’re there check out eateries like Clyde Common, which dishes out locally sourced fare, or Gruner, where their chef serves up Alpine comfort food (think: mustard spaetzle with guinea-hen ragu). Enjoy the outdoors in Montana or Wyoming — resorts like The Resort at Paws Up (PawsUp.com) offer guided activities like off-roading, hot-air ballooning and horseback riding. Finish the day with an upscale dinner at the resort’s Pomp, which classifies their cuisine as refined rustic ranch (think: grilled rib eye or Black Angus with caramelized onions).

For the Wine-Loving Bride: A Winery Tour

Instead of hitting up a stuffy, crowded bar or club, take your party on the road. From Long Island, NY, to the Leelanau Peninsula in northern Michigan and even Napa Valley’s vintages, introduce your friends to an upscale version of the traditional bachelorette. Rent a limo, plot your stops and arrange to end with a late dinner at a vineyard (complete with pairings, of course). Mix it up and get a little dirty: Some wineries like Grgich Hills Estate, in Rutherford, CA (Grgich.com), allow you to kick off your shoes and actually stomp the grapes!

For the DIY Bride: Lingerie-Making and Lessons for the Honeymoon

If she’s more of a hands-on girl, this is her kind of party. Go a step further than just a lingerie party; have everyone bring lingerie along with embellishments like sequins and beads. You could also just have a make-your-own party and ask them to bring materials like silk or mesh — it doesn’t have to actually stay on for the honeymoon. Here’s another idea: Get an instructor to come teach you and your friends how to give a proper . . . well, you know. Babeland (Babeland.com) offers classes across the country, or just ask your local adult store if they know of any instructors in town.
