Before you can say “I do,” you have to plan a night out with your best girlfriends to celebrate your last day as a single lady. Having a bachelorette party, however, doesn’t have to mean spending your money and time in Las Vegas (not that it’s a bad option!). Sin City may be a traditional destination for this get-together, but we have a few other themes you may want to consider:
Little Black Dress
Everyone looks good in a little black dress, and everyone likely owns one, so why not have a LBD party? Nobody will have to spend extra money finding an outfit for the event, and all of you will look perfectly coordinated while still adhering to your own unique style. In order for you, the bride, to stand out, you can choose a bold shade for your dress, like blue or red. But you could also step out in a white dress to make it known that there’s a ring on your finger. After everyone gets dolled up, you can head to your favorite restaurant and then to a bar for drinks.
Pretty in Pink
Can’t think of a theme? Go simple by choosing a color to stick to, like pink! Or, you could follow an 80s theme based on the classic John Hughes film, “Pretty in Pink.” Make your own rose-colored cocktails by combining two bottles of Moscato, one can of pink lemonade concentrate, three cups of sprite and a few fresh raspberries or strawberries to finish it off. Pair your cocktails with a sweet dessert, like pretty pink cake pops. Host the event at your house and then head out for a night on the town in your favorite pink ensemble.
You don’t have to live by the sea to throw a nautical-themed bachelorette party. I love this event theme because there’s just so much you can do with it. Choose a seaside color scheme, like navy blue and white with splashes of bright red here and there. Have your bridesmaids come dressed in nautical attire, which would include anything with navy and white stripes. As for snacks, opt for seafood like oysters, crab legs, fish cakes, sushi and other finger foods for all to enjoy.
Who says Halloween is the only time of year you are allowed to dress up? Give your best friends an excuse to get glammed up for an exciting masquerade bachelorette party. Prepare a table filled with plenty of props, like colorful masks, pearl necklaces, rings, wands, and lots of fun wigs so everyone can transform themselves upon arrival.
