The bachelorette party is probably the most anticipated event, second to the wedding itself (of course). It’s the last night to go out as a single lady and you get to go out and celebrate one of the biggest days of your life with all of your best friends! Therefore, this party deserves some serious planning time. The perfect theme can turn a good party into a great party. And while Vegas will always be amazing, there are other equally as awesome bachelorette party options, one of which is a 90s party. Let me explain.
The 90s were filled with unforgettable music, questionable, yet still awesome fashion choices (like jelly shoes), plenty of nostalgic items like neon pens, tamagotchis (which i DON’T miss) and of course TV that can’t be beat like “Boy Meets World,” “Saved By the Bell,” “Clarissa Explains It All,” “Kenan & Kel,” “Salute Your Shorts,” “Legends of the Hidden Temple” and so, so many more. If you share my obsession for the 90s and want to inject some nostalgia into your celebration, here are a few ways you can do so:
Stick to a dress code
You have to dress the part if you really want to get the theme across. This means neon everything, spandex, Sketchers, high-waisted jeans and shorts and leggings. And to top the outfit off? A giant saccharine sparkler to put on your finger, also known as a Ring Pop.
The perfect playlist
It wouldn’t be a party without a little music. And with music from the 90s, you’ll have plenty of unique options to choose from. “Every Morning” by Sugar Ray anyone? What about “Wannabe” by none other than the Spice Girls? Here are a few other popular 90s hits to add to your party playlist:
- “Wonderwall” by Oasis
- “Don’t Speak” by No Doubt
- “Jump Around” by House of Pain
- “I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys
- “No Scrubs” by TLC
- “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer
- “MMMBop” by Hanson
- “No Diggity” by Blackstreet
- “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston
- “Vogue” by Madonna
Go poster crazy
Remember all those posters of N’Sync, Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees? Bring those back for some serious wall decor.
Let’s be honest, at one point during the 90s you probably made your own puff-paint shirts. Well, time to bring out your skills again and grab some white T-shirts and fabric paint to make bachelorette party shirts that you’ll look back on and laugh long after the day has passed.
Send your girls home with some memories of the bachelorette party. Include glow bangle bracelets, crazy lip gloss and maybe even a CD with plenty of your favorite 90s hits included.
