It’s no secret – times have changed, and a bachelorette party is no longer just a boozy night on the town with the girls. Typically organized by the maid/matron of honor, this celebration can be anything you want it to be – from a small, intimate gathering at home to a lavish vineyard tour in northern Michigan. My City Magazine has some alternative ideas for the best ever bachelorette party, an occasion to truly remember!
Is the bride-to-be an outdoor adventurist? Ditch the high-heels for hiking boots and plan a day of fun at a nearby park or recreation area. Better yet, pack up the tent, some sleeping bags and great food and go camping! Toast the upcoming nuptials around a moonlit campfire with a glass of champagne … and don’t forget the S’mores!
Does the bride enjoy a nice glass of merlot or chardonnay after a hard day’s work? Plan a trip to a winery or have a make-your-own wine party. Personalized bottle labels add a nice touch. Sit back and enjoy a hand-crafted wine while making a special memory with the girls.
Bring out your creative sides at an art party. Each guest is provided a canvas or other materials needed to create a work of art. After a few hours of laughter and fun, everyone leaves with something they created themselves and a memory of a special day with the bride-to-be.
Walk on the Wild Side
Is Lady Luck calling your name? Get out of town with the girls and hit the game tables! Of course, there are casinos all around the state to choose from and most also offer a variety of restaurants, retails shops and live entertainment. You might not win the jackpot, but you can be sure it will be a night to remember.
Just say SPAhhhh…
There’s nothing more relaxing than a day at the spa: an ideal venue for a bachelorette party. Thoughts of the impending wedding day stress will melt away. Local spas provide services such as manicures, pedicures, massage, facials and make-up, the perfect way for the whole bridal party to get beautiful for the big day!
The bride has been working around the clock on the final wedding details, making sure everything is perfect for her big day day. What she wants more than anything is to prop up her feet and spend an evening relaxing at home. Why not bring the bachelorette party to her? Wear your most comfy PJs, order Chinese takeout food, set up a martini bar and choose some classic wedding movies, like The Wedding Singer, My Best Friend’s Wedding, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, 27 Dresses and Made of Honor. Don’t forget Bridesmaids with all its hilarious (and disastrous) pre-wedding moments.
