As Robby and Jordan reminded us in season 12 of The Bachelorette TV show, spending some time at the spa is the most relaxing way to unwind and have fun. All the ladies would enjoy spending time together in this way, and the bride-to-be would really appreciate being pampered and treated like a queen before the big day. You could indulge in a range of beauty treatments and relax in the sauna or steam room.
The ambiance and atmosphere of the spa is important, so this is something you would have to look into when choosing a spa. A spa located at the beach, in wine country or in other unique settings offers something extra special. There are some spas that would allow you to have the entire place to yourselves for a day. Spas that cater to bridal parties offer special discounts for hours of fun and bonding with family and friends. Many also offer delicious and nutritious meals. Spas get a lot of business, so it is important that you set your date and book the place well in advance to avoid disappointment.
If you can afford a day or two away from all the last minute hustle and bustle, a camping trip is the most fun way to enjoy your bachelorette party. When planning for a camping trip, think of the bride’s as well as the rest of your group's interests. You could choose a camping site near the sea or in the mountains. Taking ideas from The Bachelorette TV show, you could have fun putting out a fire, take a dip in a hot tub in the snow covered woods, or swim in a lake, unless you can actually arrange to swim with some cute seals in Uruguay. Seriously though, camping allows you to do a range of things including camping, trekking, hiking, cooking outdoors, kayaking and canoeing.
There are many camping trip packages that offer fun activities for some bachelorette bonding. You could also rent a camper and go to a National Park.
A tea party is another option. You could have a private party in a high-end hotel parlor decorated in a theme of your choosing. This will allow everyone to unwind in an atmosphere specially created for the bride and her girls. Order a range of gourmet cakes, pastries, sandwiches and other delicacies as well as a variety of teas. Let everyone know the theme so you all come dressed in dainty, frilly European dresses, and this could be one of the most stylish bachelorette party ideas of all time. Make sure a professional photographer is available to capture your special moments. Top hotels combine a luxurious ride to another fun event along with the high tea as part of their bachelorette package. This type of bachelorette party could be coupled with a bridal shower. You could take some inspiration from Jojo and Jordan's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live serves as a reminder of one of the most fun activities for bachelorette party in-laws to be. They played Fiance My Name and each correct answer meant they won something off their registry. This is a good way to see how much the bride knows about her fiance's family and vice versa. Following are some questions to ask:
- Name of childhood friend
- Name of a grandparent
- Favorite song or band
- Favorite sport's team
When planning a bachelorette party, what makes it unique is thinking outside of the box. As long as it's something that your crew will love, it's an option. If the bride-to-be is a horse lover, then you can arrange a visit to a horse race. If you book in advance, you would be sure to get the best seats to enjoy the races. In addition to complementary snacks and beverages, depending on your budget, you could arrange for a limousine or a stretch SUV to arrive in style at the venue. After enjoying the races, you can end the evening with a relaxed gourmet meal and champagne.
Skydiving and bungee jumping are some adventure sports that are gaining popularity. If the bride to be is an adventure enthusiast and loves taking risks, then this is an ideal way to enjoy a bachelorette party. This adventure is only for the brave few, so you have to be utterly sure that everyone will enjoy this adventure. The weather has to be perfect to do these dare-devil acts. If a majority of the girls are not as adventurous, a ride in a hot air balloon would provide an adrenaline-rush and an unforgettable experience. You could end the day by dining in a restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere.
A visit to a casino is a fun way to test everyone's luck and skills at winning money. If budget is not a problem and your friends likes gambling, then you can take a trip to Vegas to be where all the casino action is. Also, statistics show that 35% of visitors to Las Vegas are there because of a bachelor/bachelorette party. The city has so much to offer apart from gambling, and every moment in it will be unforgettable. You can plan the trip by yourselves or get a package deal that covers your accommodation, your rides and everything else.
