Fun Karaoke Bachelorette Party

 

Does the bride-to-be love watching American Idol? Does she jump at any chance she gets to perform in local theater? Is she a regular at the local karaoke bar? If so, it may be perfect to plan a karaoke bachelorette party.

Bachelorette parties can be anything you want them to be, but above all they should suit the bride. If she loves to sing, it may be a great option to rent a special Japanese style karaoke room, go to a crowded local karaoke bar, or rent a karaoke machine for an at home singing festival!

If you are planning karaoke bachelorette party, make the theme all music related. Provide music note shaped cupcakes, decorate with records and cds hung as banners and along the walls. Make music the central idea of the party. This is a perfect bachelorette theme not just for girls who love to sing, but also for girls who love attending concerts, or the bride whose groom is a musician.

A karaoke bachelorette party, since it is all about the singing, requires special song selection planning. Classics include Madonna’s Like a Virgin, or David Bowie’s White Wedding. Any song with the words wedding or bride is a good choice. Other great songs are those that talk about love. You could plan for each girl attending the party to sing a different song with the word love in the title. This should be easy, since so many songs are about love.

You can also give out musically themed party favors at the bachelorette party. Everyone could get a kids kazoo or whistle to wear around during the night. Make each girl a CD with songs from the night on it. This works particularly well if you plan ahead of time and each bridesmaid tells you which song she intends to sing. Therefore, you could end up with a CD full of love songs that every time you play will remind you of the way each girl sang her song. For bold brides, choose to go to a popular and public karaoke bar where she can get praise for her singing skills. Dress up for this type of event! Make everyone wear matching boas, for example.

For a more demure, but still songstress bride, rent a karaoke room (some bars offer this private service), or rent or borrow an at home karaoke machine. These machines are often of high quality and can turn your living room into a party zone. The lyrics show up on your TV and the music plays out of the speakers, so you usually have to do very little to hook up the karaoke machine for the bachelorette party.

One tip, however, if you are planning an at home karaoke bachelorette party, is to assign one girl duty as MC and DJ. She can change CDs in the machine and help facilitate the singing. This is a great role for any party guest who strongly objects to singing in front of the group. She can still be involved without feeling pressured to sing solo. Check out this list of Bachelorette Party Songs and Music.

Truth about girls bachelor party for girls

Categories ArticlesPosted on

It would seem like most bachelor party for girls follow a similar narrative: They begin with good intentions—dinner at a trendy new restaurant; a hike to a well-known physical landmark; rooftop cocktails with bonding!—but then somehow, inevitably, the girls end up wasted at 2:00 p.m. on a wine-tasting safari, wearing shirts that shout “The Bride’s Bitches,” screaming obscenities at dumb animals. It’s in these moments that one should be reminded that: at their core, bachelorette parties should be about celebrating gender equality by objectifying male strippers and drinking Vodka Red Bull through penis straws. And then one feels better.

A bachelor party for a girl is a phenomenon it seems that society has come to both detest and embrace with equal enthusiasm. The prevailing aesthetic of the modern bachelorette—princess sashes, genitalia-centric novelty items, fluffy cat ears, etc.—is a look that transcends social boundaries, welcomed by everyone.. The increasing indulgence of the ritual was perfectly summed up by Amy Schumer in her sketch “Bachelorette Party Disaster,” in which a bachelorette party bus crashes into a bachelorette booze cruise. The result is described as a “rat king situation,” with women “bound together in a wet tangle of hair extensions and feather boas.” Most of the fatalities in this disaster were bystander suicides.

But as bachelorette parties become increasingly debauched, bachelor parties seem to be taking a different course. The groom’s crews opted for chill camping weekends or hiking trips, and some grooms might even skip the ritual all together. Even well-known publications arfe sporting articles about wholesome, “mostly hangover-free” bachelor party ideas for the year’s wedding season. When did women start beating men at their own gross game?

The bachelorette party is a fairly recent phenomenon. For centuries, men had premarital parties while women just chilled at home, chatting, sipping tea, or whatever—typical. According to the history books (read: Wikipedia), the ritual of celebrating the groom’s last night as a single man is believed to have started back in the fifth century B.C., with the ancient Spartans. The practice has obviously evolved over the years, but for at least the last century, bachelor parties have commonly consisted of men getting sloshed, ogling strippers, getting bromotional, and making decisions they later regret. (See: the 1984 Tom Hanks comedy Bachelor Party and The Hangover trilogy).

The idea was that men were commemorating the death of their freedom with one grasp at freedom.

Women, on the other hand, weren’t seen to be giving up anything for marriage, because they had no sexual freedom or independence to begin with; women were only gaining something. So instead of raging, women had bridal showers, which were known for being rather tame and sedate.

Then around the late sixties, amidst the sexual revolution and a diminishing sexual double standard, the bachelor party for girls was born. Still, it was by no means common; it was more radical. Throughout the seventies, bachelorette parties were something some feminists did as an antithesis of the torturous bridal shower. But the bachelorette as we know it today wasn’t common until the mid-eighties. It was during this time that a new school of pro-sex feminism emerged, led by women like Madonna, who proclaimed sexual freedom as an essential component of women’s liberation. Women were entering the workforce and appropriating men’s styles of dress, wearing tailored skirt suits with huge shoulder pads, aka “power dressing.” The general idea was that women could be “like men”—could work like men, dress like men, behave like men, and, essentially, ogle strippers while pounding shots like men. Sexual freedom meant that women, too, were free to act like apes and make decisions they would live to  regret later on. It was only fair.

It would seem that bachelorette parties aren’t just getting more depraved, they’re also getting far more extravagant, demanding, and expensive. It’s becoming increasingly common to do destination parties, some that last up to a week. And then there’s the money issue. You are  made to feel really guilty if you don’t go, because the bride puts a lot of pressure on you. Add that to the cost of an engagement present, a wedding present, and traveling to the wedding, and you might as well financially shoot yourself in the foot.

It happens quite commonly that a bunch of girls can go to Vegas for a bachelorette. Cavorting around on stage at a strip club wearing sashes that say ‘Cheers bitches’. Getting individual lap dances while a stripper sprays their faces with champagne. They would be staying in a huge suite that was decorated in glitter, which is where they’d pregame and play Pin the Dick on the Man. It can be a mess, and uinsurprisingly there have been girls leaving with a tattoo on their face.

One has to ask has the point of bachelor party for girls become to get drunk and throw up on yourself. But really what’s the point of having a bachelorette party if you’re not going to go all-out with with a six-foot blow-up dick and penis straws? Without those, it’s just a regular night out with your friends.

It comes down to the idea, really, why buy into any mainstream convention unless you’re just going to go for it? Acknowledge that having a bachelor part for girls is kind of a basic bitch thing to do to begin with and embrace the cheesy stereotypes. And sure, the performance of bachelorette parties are usually partly ironic, and a bit parody, but the reality is, even if you’re wearing a dick on your head at a restaurant “as a joke,” you’re not invisible.

Bachelorette Party Themes

Bachelorettes

 

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!
