A bachelorette party is one of the most fun things a bride and her girls can take part in! Many times, it includes a late night out, with lots of clubbing, drinking, shots, stripping, ones, and forgotten memories. Other times, it might include a party bus or a limousine filled with lots of champagne.
But what if you are a bride that hates the party scene? What if you really want to have fun, but without the naked bodies and heavy drinking? The great news is that there are many alternatives available for those who hate the party scene. And the even better news is, these ideas will not bore your other bridesmaids!
So if you want your bachelorette party to be amazing, or if you are a bridesmaid planning the bride’s bachelorette party and know what the bride doesn’t want, then consider some of these super sweet bachelorette party alternative ideas. Have a night that you can actually remember and get creative!
1. Plan a cabin weekend.
If you and your girls love camping or a weekend in nature at a getaway cabin, then a cabin weekend may be just the option for you! Take a hike, sleep in, watch movies all night, play some truth or dare, bake cookies, etc. The weekend with the best women in your life may be just what you need! Or, buy a cabin and bring the weekend to your own home!
2. Take a pole dancing class!
This is a great way for girls who are insecure about their dance skills to just let loose and have fun! You may feel a little ridiculous at first, but a pole dancing class can be filled with laughter, fun, and exercise! If you want to get some fitness into your bachelorette party, this is one of the best ways to do so!
3. Take a self defense class!
If you want a highly intense workout party, then why not learn some martial arts? It can be hard as a woman in the world and we all know it! So why not learn to defend yourself in case you are ever in an emergency? Have fun as you learn the dynamics of self defense, and maybe after the class, get some drinks in celebration of bringing out your inner toughness.
4. Volunteer together.
If you are a bride that loves giving back, then volunteer for a night at one of the needed places around you! There are always volunteers needed! You could serve at a soup kitchen, organize clothes at a thrift store, cuddle puppies at a shelter, or help out at Bingo with the old folks! There are a countless number of options available, and you can feel good about spending your bacholerette party doing something worthwhile!
5. Shop until you drop!
Who doesn’t love shopping? If you have been pushing off some lingerie shopping or maybe buying another pair of jeans, then a shopping night might be just what you need! Set yourself a budget (because remember, you are paying for a wedding) or let your ladies buy you things (this might seem like a nicer option). Either way, shop for a few hours, then maybe catch a movie or eat out and treat yourselves!
6. Visit a comedy club.
Have you been stressed out and need a few good laughs before the big day? Then checking out a comedy club is a wonderful option! Enjoy dinner out with the ladies beforehand or eat at the venue, and enjoy a night of probably peeing your pants from laughing so hard!
7. Go to a concert.
Is one of your favorite bands performing nearby? Grab some tickets and hit up a concert close to you! Keep in mind your friend’s tastes so they do not have to waste money on a ticket that they will thoroughly hate. But if everyone is okay with it, enjoy a night of music and crowd surfing!
8. Take an Aerobics class!
If there are no aerobic classes offered nearby to you, then check out Goodwill or a thrift store for some old aerobic DVDs! You will definitely be laughing at your ridiculous dance moves in the living room, along with the outfits of the instructors on the television screen. Laugh a lot and get fit!
9. The classic sleepover.
Well, it is a classic! Sleepovers can be so much fun and incredibly relaxing! You can spend the night watching lots of movies, eating a lot of junk food, and doing other typical things you do at a sleepover. Because you are getting married, this may be the last time you have a sleepover for awhile! So you might as well get one more in while you can.
10. Take a cooking class!
Cooking be relaxing for some, to others a regular chore, and to some, a complete nightmare! So if you want to get a kick out of the bridesmaid who can’t even pop microwave popcorn in the kitchen, then taking a cooking class is a great way to get the laughter you are probably craving!
