The typical bachelorette party usually consists of a trip somewhere with lots of events and activities, but that may not fit every wedding or every bride. If that doesn’t sound like what is ideal for you before your special day, you may be wondering what you can do instead that will still be a fun way to celebrate with your friends before your wedding. There are plenty of alternatives that you can do instead of the big celebration if it isn’t quite your speed.
Typically, the bride doesn’t plan the bachelorette party. This is usually left to the maid of honor to plan and they make all the arrangements and preparations. If this is the case for you, be sure that your maid of honor (or whoever is planning it for you) is on the same page. If not, you may end up with a party that you weren’t looking for or spending too much money on a trip you didn’t plan for. If you are planning your own bachelorette party, then you have no worries! Plan exactly what you want to create a great time with your friends, however, that looks for you!
If you need alternative bachelorette party ideas, it is important to take into consideration the time of year because that will likely rule out some options. If you aren’t looking to travel and you live in an area that is snowy, you will likely have to eliminate outdoor options, unless you like skiing, snowboarding or other winter activities! Be sure to think ahead about what the weather will be like, so you and all your friends will be comfortable.
Here are some unique and alternative bachelorette party ideas!
Experiment with food and drink
A fun way to spend some time with friends in a casual way without spending a ton of money is to make your own dinner and drinks! Choose a place where you all have some room to cook and try out cooking something new! Maybe each person creates a different party of the meal or each of you create a dish from a different party of the world. Choose whatever cuisine sounds good to you, get the ingredients and start assigning! Another way to make this a bit more fun is to create your own cocktails. Start off by making your unique drinks, share them and then start cooking! You can include non-alcoholic options for those who don’t drink, as well!
Visit a psychic
While not everyone may believe in this option, it is definitely a fun activity to do! This could be a place you go or you may be able to hire one to come to you. Either way, you can have everyone have their futures read and the bride will have fun reading on her upcoming marriage! Everyone can compare their readings and futures and it can serve as a great story to tell later on. If you are planning for someone else, be sure that the bride is into this idea and that they are willing and excited to have a psychic reading!
There are lots of different locations where you can book a party to go and paint while you sip wine, mimosas, sangria or other beverages! This is a fun way to spend some time together while also creating something you get to take home and remember the event from. If you are looking for more chill bachelorette party ideas, this is a great option! Even if you or some of your friends aren’t very artistic, this can be a fun and funny experience!
