Bachelorette parties are a big deal these days. But if your style is a little more low key than getting dressed up, going partying and getting sloshed with your girlfriends, you might consider these alternatives instead.
If you’ve worked hard and stressed for weeks or month over the wedding then this is it. It’s time to take a breather and let someone pamper you for a bit.
Hit the spa with your ladies and get massages, facials, and a mani/pedi combination. It will cost just about as much as a night out, yet it is better for you than going to smoke-filled bars and consuming vast amounts of alcohol that will just make you wish you had chosen a spa day to begin with.
Plus, you will look renewed and feel at your very best for the main event.
Take some time and have fun with your bridesmaids and a few friends by getting dressed up- and then getting your photographs taken! When was the last time you actually had a professional photographer focus on you? (And no, family portraits where you are consoling a screaming child don’t count) Make it really fun and do a theme, like 1980s Rocker Chick, or 1950s Pin-Up Glamour.
Arts and Crafts
This is perfect for the bride that has a lot of DIY projects left to do to make the wedding day happen. Order some pizzas, make some cupcakes, break out the wine, and invite everyone over to your place for a crafting party to finish up those last minute projects- and maybe get a jump start in some handwritten “thank you” notes. This is a way to knock out those projects and have fun with the women you enjoy the most in your life.
