Planning any type of party can be stressful, so feel free to use our ideas if you are ever stumped while party planning. Traditionally, bachelorette parties are informal and everyone gets to let loose a little bit, which makes planning the party all the more fun. Let’s get started planning the ultimate bachelorette party.

1. Start by Picking the Perfect Theme That Suits the Bride

You know the bride better than anyone, so now it's time to choose the theme and start thinking about bachelorette party favors

Being in charge of party planning is a lot of pressure. Of course you want to make sure everything is absolutely perfect leading up to the wedding — including the bachelorette party. To get started, you first need to choose a theme. Start by thinking about some of the bride's favorite activities, music, or television shows to gather some ideas.

Next, you should make sure that the theme you’ve chosen will work well for a bachelorette party. For example, you should choose a theme everyone will recognize and something everyone can get dressed up for. Some great bachelorette party themes include:

  • 90s party (or really any decade)
  • Cowboy/Cowgirl
  • Disco
  • Color (The bride’s favorite)
  • Luau
  • Superheroes/Supervillans

These are just a few ideas to help you get started brainstorming. After you have chosen a strong theme that represents the bride, it's time to move onto the bachelorette party favors.

2. Get Customized Cups For The Wedding Party

When it comes to bachelorette party favors, there are a lot of options to choose from! From mini champagne bottles to novelty crowns and sashes, there are a lot of classic options for party favors. However, why not go beyond the obvious choices by making personalized cups with each bridesmaid’s name. These make cute and practical bachelorette party favors, and no one will end up losing their drink at the party. How convenient! Your guests can also keep their cups for long after the party, so it's fun and useful.

3. Create a Designated Selfie Station

Make memories that will last a lifetime in front of the perfect background

Let’s face it, selfies are a way of life. No good bachelorette party can end without a few tipsy selfies shared between friends. That’s why we recommend making a designated selfie station with an IG-worthy background. We’ve compiled a list of supplies you’ll need to create a background that is sure to attract some camera lenses. Depending on your theme, every background will look a little different, but it's good to start with the following.
  • Large sheet of colored art paper
  • Balloons
  • Stickers
  • Streamers
  • Fun colored lights
  • Tinsel curtain
  • Custom lettered sign

Once you’ve got your supplies, use your imagination to design the perfect selfie station for the upcoming bachelorette party.

4. Create Your Own Boozy Cocktails With a Tipsy Scoop Cocktail Kit

At most bachelorette parties, it's common practice to get a little bit of a buzz on with the wedding party. So why not think outside of the box by having your guests create their own signature ice cream cocktails with Tipsy Scoop boozy ice cream. Tipsy Scoop offers ice cream cocktail kits for all occasions and types of liquor. You can choose one of the ice cream cocktail kits from the Tipsy Scoop site and select the one you think will best suit the bride's tastes (in ice cream or liquor). Then you can challenge the bridal party to see who can make the best (or strongest) ice cream cocktail. Winner gets bragging rights!

5. Find Games Everyone Will Want to Play

What’s a good bachelorette party without a few drinking games!

Everyone has a little bit of a competitive side, so why not show it off with a few games that are sure to take the bachelorette party to the next level. For a new variation on an old classic, why not try prosecco pong! That's right, it's just like beer pong but using prosecco and a special set of flutes. You can buy a designated pong kit, or you can DIY one with your own plastic prosecco flutes. Just make sure to try out the plastic champagne flutes first to make sure the game isn't too difficult. Champagne pong is a great idea for bachelorette parties because it's fun, celebratory, and you won’t have to spend time explaining a new set of rules to your guests.

6. Make A Slideshow of Old Photos to Celebrate Each Other

It’s never a bad time for a trip down memory lane

Weddings are major events for close friends and family. Why not make the bride feel special by creating a slideshow of all the great times you and other guests have shared. You can set the slideshow to music and play it for everyone at the party all at once, or you could have the slideshow playing in the background during the party. Either way, throwing a bachelorette party is all about celebrating the soon-to-be bride and the memories you’ve shared in the past. Pro tip — contact other members of the wedding party to see if they have any important (or embarrassing) photos they want to share at the bachelorette party.
