Bachelorette / Stag Night Party Ideas
While bachelor parties are a tradition dating back
to the 1800s, bachelorette parties have become popular only
recently. Bachelorette parties seem to be more about the
bride-to-be bonding with women friends than the male tradition of
enjoying a final night of freedom before marriage.
A New Tradition
Some brides choose a night of frivolity, such as male exotic
dancers and lots of alcohol, much like the groom's bachelor party.
But the majority of women opt for other activities. The theme of
most bachelorette parties is to tease the bride in a fun way, while
sharing a memorable evening with her best friends.
The Nightclub Scene
This is 1 of the most popular bachelorette activities. Parties
often start with dinner at an elegant restaurant, followed by
drinks and dancing at popular nightclubs. Hiring a limousine to
drive everyone together from destination to destination is a great
idea. First, it allows all the women to travel together and party
in transit. Second, it adds a touch of class to the evening. And
perhaps the best reason is to ensure that everyone arrives safely
at their destinations.
The women in the bachelorette party will often create a veil for
the bride to wear on that night. The style of the veil isn't
important, so long as it is conspicuous and calls a great deal of
attention to the bride. It's also typical for this type of party to
send the bride on a scavenger hunt. The other women get together
ahead of time to create a list of activities for the bride to
accomplish or objects to find. This type of bachelorette party is a
great way for the bride to enjoy a night of dinner, dancing, drinks
and fun with her best friends.
Retreat To A Spa
Spa retreats have become quite popular as bachelorette party
ideas. The bride-to-be and her friends get together at a spa to
enjoy relaxing massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and other
treatments. A steam room, sauna and/or hot tub adds an extra
element of relaxation.
Some spas provide great meals from a selection of healthy dishes.
This type of bachelorette party lets the bride relax and connect
with her friends while leaving behind the stress of planning a
wedding. Many brides get so caught up in the details of wedding
planning that they forget to enjoy the wedding. A spa retreat
bachelorette party is a great solution.
Exotic Dance Lessons
A little more risque, but lots of fun, is exotic dancing lessons.
These parties are becoming more common now that pole dancing
classes are beginning to spring up in health clubs. For these
parties the women gather at a private home or a dance studio, and a
professional dancer comes in to teach them the art of exotic dance.
This can be a great way for friends to let loose and have
Night Of Feature Films
Another unique bachelorette party idea is for the maid of honor to
host a movie night. The hostess rents plenty of movies to select
from, and stocks up on movie theater style goodies or creates a
menu of hors d'oeuvres. This could be the bride's last chance to
sit around with her friends watching "chick flicks" for a good long
while. This is a fun, safe, and relaxing way for the women to get
together to talk and have a good time.
Although a new phenomenon, the bachelorette party is quickly
catching on. It does not have the same feel as a bachelor party --
instead of a last night of freedom, it a night to bond with women
