Planning the bachelorette party can be one of the most fun aspects of wedding planning! 

Fun Bachelorette Party Ideas

There are several factors you will need to consider when arranging the bachelorette party:

Your Budget

Talk to the other attendees before planning the bachelorette party and work out a rough budget.

Make sure this is affordable to everyone, and work out a timescale of what needs to be paid and when.

Number of Guests

The type of bachelorette party you throw will largely depend on the number of guests.

If you have a large number of attendees, this may narrow down your options.

For example, it might be challenging to throw a slumber party if you have 20+ attendees!

The Bride’s Preferences

The Bride always comes first when it comes to planning anything wedding-related!

The goal is for her to have as much fun as possible and you should plan the bachelorette party with this in mind.

For example, if your Bride is tee-total, you might want to choose a spa day, rather than an evening of bar hopping! 

Time Scales

How much time do you have to plan the bachelorette party?

If you have a matter of weeks or just a few months, you may want to consider something local and easier to plan.

The Organizer

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’? The sample applies to bachelorette parties!

Decide in advance who is going to be the organizer. Traditionally this role falls to the maid of honor.

Discuss with the Bride how much input she wants to have. Some brides will find a complete surprise adds to the excitement!

Other brides will find not knowing stressful and will want to be involved in detailed planning.

Bachelorette Ideas

Here are some great suggestions for bachelorette party inspiration:

A Slumber Party

A slumber party is a wonderful, low-cost way to get all your nearest and dearest ladies together for a fun evening.

Do you remember how much these used to be when you were younger?

Re-create those moments with your friends with an old-school slumber party.

Decorations are key to make a night at home feel truly special!

You can find a huge array of banners, balloons and props at both Amazon and Etsy.

Add to the fun by wearing matching pajamas, perhaps personalized for the evening.

Make sure you have plenty of the Bride’s favorite drinks stocked up, or you may wish to make your own cocktails.

Food-wise, you could prepare a small buffet or order takeout. Games are an absolute must for a bachelorette slumber party!

Popular games to play include Truth or Dare and Never Have I Ever. You could also watch a girly film or experiment with some at-home beauty treatments. 

A Spa Day

This stress-free option is likely to be a big hit with your group. A trip to the spa is the ultimate way to relax and spoil yourself before the big day!

You can pre-book treatments you know the Bride loves, including facials and massages, so she feels completely pampered.

Many spas offer discounts for group bookings.

A spa day can make a chilled-out change to the whirlwind that is wedding planning. 

Bar Hopping

Going bar hopping is a fun way to for everyone to get to know each other, and an excuse to get glammed up!

Make the Bride feel like a VIP by adding your group to any guest lists of top bars and clubs in advance.

You may also want to pre-arrange drinks, such as champagne or the Bride’s favorite spirit.

You could even book a booth/area of the bar for a more exclusive, intimate mood. 

An Intimate Meal

A meal out with a select group provides an opportunity for more in-depth conversation, and for all the guests to become better acquainted.

Make the evening extra special by decorating your table in advance or pre-ordering the Bride’s favorite drinks.


If your Bride is the outdoorsy type, why not book a night away glamping.

Glamping has grown in popularity over recent years, and there are many unique venues available such as cabins, teepees and even treehouses!

Some even have additional add-ons like a hot tub! Glamping provides all the fun of camping, while giving some extra home comforts.

If you feel adventurous, you could plan some outdoor activities for your group, such as paddle boarding or hiking.

Add to the experience by toasting s’mores over a campfire or having a barbecue. 


If you have a smaller group, with a decent budget, a vacation is an unforgettable way to celebrate the Bride’s upcoming nuptials.

This is the most challenging bachelorette party to plan.

You will need to consider the location, accommodation, transport and potentially time off work and childcare issues.

However, the upside is a holiday with girlfriends that can be a really exciting bonding experience. Matching shirts while traveling, or even matching swimwear is a fun idea.

Remember to take lots of photos!

Take A Cruise

In the same category, a bachelorette cruise is a great classic bachelorette idea! Your girls will get to have a fun filled weekend (or whole week) being taken care of. The cruise has activities, somewhere to travel to, room cleaning, and they take care of your meals!

Check out the Norwegian Bliss if you need ideas of cruise lines.

Wine Tasting

If your Bride is a big wine lover, a wine tasting makes for a fun group activity.

Run this idea by everyone in your party first to ensure it is an option all members will appreciate.

If an attendee doesn’t like wine, they may feel a little left out!

How complex and costly this is to plan will depend on your location.

Perhaps there’s a local bar that offers this service, or you may need to arrange a day trip.

A nice touch is to buy the Bride her favorite bottle of wine she tries. This could then be saved to celebrate her first wedding anniversary!
