Bachelorette Party Themes
If you are a maid of honor or bridesmaid planning a bachelorette party, there are a variety of great themes that can make your party stand out. Bachelorette parties, since they are designed just for girls, are the prefect opportunity to use your creative energy and come up with a special theme. Remember to give the bachelorette party guests enough time to plan on what they will wear instead of telling them just before the bachelorette party so they have time to get creative and plan cute outfits.
One great theme is the black and white bachelorette party. Color is a great way to signify and unify the bridesmaids and the bachelorette at the party, especially if you are going out on the town. It is fun to have the bridesmaids all dress in black (or some other color, such as red) and have the bachelorette dress in white. A great way to do this is have the bride wear a white blouse or dress and the bridesmaids all wear black cocktail dresses.
Another theme to consider is a retro 80s theme. The 80s theme is great for bachelorettes who were children or teens in the 1980s, because the theme adds significance, makes them reminisce about their childhood, and is generally fun! You can play 80s music, wear neon, and have big hair. If the bachelorette party is an at-home party, you can play great 80s movies like Footloose and Sixteen Candles. The bachelorette can help select her favorite 80s songs for the party mix and you can find 80s party gifts.
EBay can offer options like classic 80s slap bracelets and you can burn CDs for all the girls of the music played at the party. In keeping with a time period theme, a great bachelorette party theme is a sexy 70s disco. Grab bell bottoms, straighten your hair or wear an afro, and find your favorite disco music or classic rock songs to play on the stereo. If you are taking your bachelorette party out on the town, you may find great options to see a disco band play or a club that is having a themed 70s night. Dressing up is part of the fun of this type of bachelorette party, so go all out!
For a more risqué bride, you can plan a playboy themed bachelorette party. This is great with girls who have a diva attitude and want to dress up in provocative clothing for one last night out on the town. This kind of bachelorette party is perfect for the girls who want to turn heads and get lots of attention while they are out. Show up in hot party clothes and go to your favorite bar or restaurant. A take on this theme could be to start a day of bachelorette party activities with a group exotic dance class, which are offered by many gyms. If you are going with all your girlfriends, this will seem like a fun adventure, not too naughty. Then, cap off the night out on the dance floor of your favorite club, showing off your new moves!
Just like the popular reality television show, you can throw a bachelorette party Amazing Race. The bachelorette and her friends can split off into teams or groups, and go on a scavenger hunt at all your favorite bars or city landmarks. You can make the last “pit stop” of your amazing bachelorette race either your favorite hang out spot or back at your house to wrap up the evening. Make sure to take lots of pictures!
