When it comes to celebrating your favorite bride-to-be, it can be all too easy to become carried away by extravagant party ideas. Thankfully, a little creativity can go a long way toward putting together a memorable event worthy of your gal pal. Here are some fun-yet-thrifty ideas for the best-ever bachelorette bash.
Announcing your party
Many bachelorettes choose to email their guests about their planned festivities. Make things interesting and fun by creating your own website to announce your itinerary. It’s easy to create a customized website using a free website builder. Add some personality to your site with an appealing banner detailing any updates your guests need to know about. An online banner generator allows you to choose from professionally designed banners and then customize them to your needs.
Want to feel like a kid again? There is nothing like a sleepover to bring out the little girl in all of you, and it’s a super cool way to connect with each other, just relaxing and celebrating. Plan some fun games, stay up watching movies, eat yummy finger foods, and round things out with pedis and manis à la Martha Stewart so everyone is looking sharp for the big day. Consider an event with fun favors, like adorable matching PJs in the bride’s wedding colors, cute slippers to match, earrings, and all the goodies to do facials.
Planning a Mexican-inspired party can be big fun, and the theme lends itself well to a wide variety of celebratory options. If you stick with a local event, you can pull together a colorful bash with DIY piñatas following instructions from Cool Crafts. It’s the ultimate bash when you add sombreros, margaritas, a taco bar, and your girls!
A final fiesta can be an ideal destination bachelorette party as well, and you can choose between domestic and foreign choices to fit your circumstances and budget. Staying stateside, you have places like Albuquerque or Santa Fe, or head over the border to Cancún or Mexico City. When booking your arrangements, save money by shopping through websites like Travelocity, where you can take advantage of special deals and packages.
Come sail away
Would a day or two on the water be an ideal celebration for you and the girls? No access to a boat? No captain? No problem – you can take advantage of boat-sharing opportunities! Think Airbnb, only on the water. The prospect lends itself well to a beach-themed party, island getaway, or even a pirate-oriented bash.
Everything from yachts to speedboats, to houseboats, is available, and you can shop for the best deals on sites like GetMyBoat, where they offer a variety of party boat packages to ease planning. Just get with the captain to coordinate an amazing celebration that packs a wallop with minimal expense. Tans and cocktails await!
I do crew
Would the best gift you could give the bride-to-be also be a gift to the world? If volunteering at her favorite charity would really float her boat, why not plan a party that gives you all some good feelings? There are charities for kids, animals, abused women – you name it. If there is something your bride-to-be is invested in, chances are she’ll be deeply touched. On top of that, it’s a great team-building exercise if some of you are getting to know each other, and you can always hit happy hour in the end.
For fab photo ops and to commemorate your event, custom T-shirts can be ideal. Come up with a slogan that fits your party, whether it’s simply noting you’re all members of the “I do crew” or incorporating an image relating to the charity of choice. To make your idea a reality without breaking the bank, look to websites like Zazzle. They have plenty of designs to pick from or you can make your own, they offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee, and you can sign up for their mailing list to find special offers in your inbox.
The bride-to-be deserves a great send-off, but you don’t have to go broke doing it. Explore a creative solution like a PJ party, final fiesta, maritime celebration, or a day of volunteering. By thinking outside the box, you can have a top-notch, memory-making bash!
