The bachelorette party is often one of the biggest celebrations in the lead up to a wedding and is well-known for being an opportunity to let your hair down and push the boat out. It’s also famous for being somewhat risqué and even wild, but more and more brides are choosing to take a different approach. These brides are not keen on the hangover, memory loss or embarrassment which often follows a raucous bachelorette and, instead, would like to spend an enjoyable evening with the women they love from children to grandparents. However, this does not mean that these bachelorettes aren’t fun or memorable.
- Spa Day or Pamper Party
If there’s one thing which a bride needs, it’s a day of relaxation. Planning a wedding is exciting but can also be stressful and tiring, so a day or weekend of spa treatments could be perfect. This idea will suit women of any age, and even if you don’t have the budget to head to a spa resort you could always create a spa day at home. In fact, this may be better for older people who aren’t as mobile and means even young children can attend. You could also incorporate some beauty into the day with some makeovers – whether funny or serious – but just be sure that your work can be undone before the big day! Throw in some classic chick-flicks and you’ll have a haven of relaxation.
- Have a Day of Adventure
If your group is relatively fit, you might want to head out on a day of exploration and adventure. Head off to your nearest adventure activity center and try some go-karting, paintballing, archery or quad-biking, or you could plan a scavenger hunt around the local area. Alternatively, if you have older family members attending, this could be as simple as a shopping spree in a new city where you can take in the sights and enjoy some delicious food.
With either option, you can make sure the group feels like they are a real part of the event with printed t-shirts which commemorate the event. A garment printing Manchester company can create high-quality t-shirts which your attendees can keep for years to come.
- Host a Formal Tea Party
For a more formal but refined celebration, why not plan a classy tea party with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, dainty sandwiches, and luxury cakes and cookies? If you host it at a high-end restaurant or café it gives everyone a chance to dress up in their best clothes and to chat in beautiful surroundings.
- Final tip…keep the booze and sexiness to a minimum
If you want to ensure the bachelorette stays under control, it’s usually best to avoid alcohol or at least to limit how much is available. Drunkenness and people becoming unwell will only spoil the event in the long-run and may make some older attendees uncomfortable. In addition, while some will use the bachelorette as an opportunity to embarrass or shock the bride with sexy gifts, a family-friendly event is not the place for it. Make sure that all the attendees know that these gifts will be inappropriate and if they want to give them it would be best to do at another time.
