Start off with a little bit of sentimentality…
Get all the girlfriends together and build a book. Each girlfriend gets one page, so the more girlies the better. Fill the book with photographs and illustrations of you with the bride, funny quotes, embracing memories, friendship mementos—you know, whatever makes her cringe and laugh and finally tear up a little.
Dressing the part
Dressing the part for your big night out is all too important—more so for the bride than the entourage. So whether that comes in the form of a bedazzled bra, a jewelled tiara, an embarrassing tee or a tutu—you’ve got to make your bride feel special in more ways than one on her last fling before the ring.
Bright, fun and flirtatious cocktails take the lead
Start the night with a batch of bright, fun and flirtatiously strong cocktails to set the mood! Everyone’s going to get excited and ready for the night to come and it’s your responsibility that the bride is sipping on those coloured drinks all night long.
The epic getaway
For the most epic bachelorette weekend, you’re going to have to plan a mini getaway—and hopefully to some place with a beach. You want to be able to muster as many whacky memories as possible and that requires an entire weekend of madness. If time or money doesn’t allow you a little getaway, fret not! If you’re sticking to your home for the party you can always make it feel like a big, girly getaway. Find your favourite nearby 5-star hotel and pay the fee to be able to use the pool—all day. You can relax with your gal pals over frozen cocktails and Swedish deep tissue. All the relaxing will wind you up perfectly for the crazy night ahead.
Drink a little, laugh a little
Every good party requires planning and this one is no different. From the invites to the favours and even the games—you’re going to have to do a little work before the big night and some of that might include quizzing the groom. A week before the party have the entire entourage come up with embarrassing questions about the couple and send them to the groom to answer. On party night, take turns reading out the questions and have the bride guess his responses, if she gets it wrong she has to sip that big, bright cocktail—if she gets it right, the entire entourage sips!
That fun shaped cake
Every single bachelorette party is incomplete without cakes and other baked goods that come in cringe-worthy, embarrassing and hilarious shapes. Whether it has the torso of the groom plastered on it or whether it’s decorated with little boxer shorts—get creative with this one and make sure the bride gets the first bite!
And let the games begin…
Giving all your favourite games a bachelorette twist is where all the fun lies! And one of our favourites is charades. Split your entourage up into two teams and have a bowl full of chits that have the names of ex-BFFs, random hook-ups and old-school crushes of the bride. What is about to ensue is entertainment of the highest quality in its purest form.
Well actually, there’s only one rule
Trust us ladies when we say this night has the power to make you laugh like you never knew how, bring in the waterworks and create a whole bank of fabulous new memories. None of the logistics matter—the only rule you need to have is to make sure your hearts are fully pumped with excruciating amounts of love for each other and you’re wishing all good things for your bestie in this next chapter of her life and of course, promising to be with her every step of the way. Make sure you grab her alone for a minute and communicate this mad love with her, give her a giant sloppy, intoxicated kiss and have a cracker of a night!
