A good Bachelorette Party will be a great memory for the bride and her friends for a LIFETIME and therefore shouldn’t be cut out entirely from the Wedding festivities, however, you can follow some of the creative tips below for some cost savings on things you won’t even miss!
Slumber Party – The ultimate girls-only gathering, a slumber party, is a good way to get in touch with your roots — especially if you and the bride are childhood friends. Just pick a place to crash — the maid with the biggest couch wins of course!
Stock up on DVDs of the horror movies that scared you senseless in high school, or the latest and greatest chick flicks. Bring along all the necessary supplies and give each other manicures and pedicures during the party. Order a pizza and tease the delivery boy like you did when you were 12. Pick a frozen drink to blend and tell stories (keep them lighthearted) where you each take a big sip every time someone makes the bride blush.
The Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt– With this popular game you can send your bachelorettes all over town on a chase for the scavenger hunt list of goodies! For the best scavenger hunt make sure it has lot’s of personal things about the bride or fit’s with the theme of your bachelorette party!

For example you may find one Limo company that charges hundreds of dollars more than another. Shopping around can pay off BIG!
Buy drinks to have at the Pre-Party or in the Limo– Just look at it this way…every drink you have at the bar will cost you twice as much as a drink you mix yourself. Plan to have a few drinks at a pre-party or in the Limo on the way to the club. You will drink fewer drinks at the bar or club and save lot’s of $$$!
Bake you own Naughty Cake – Why go get an expensive bakery when you can make your own cake for just a few dollars. Grab a cake mix of your choice and Chocolate or Pink frosting (Bride’s Preference!). Make a regular sheet cake and freeze it. Once the cake is frozen you can cut it into any shape and frost it! Check out this funny and informative article on the Art of creating a Penis cake.
