Tips to Choosing a Bachelorette Party Theme

by

Bachelorette parties are an opportunity for a bride-to-be to celebrate one last time as a single lady before walking down the aisle. Tasked with planning the party can be a stressful activity, but also exciting! The bridal party has an opportunity to put together an event that trumps any other bachelorette event. You want your bride-to-be bestie to have the time of her life at her bachelorette party, but how can you make sure it’s unique? Whether you’re leading the party planning or hoping to contribute to the theme idea pool, use these tips to choose a memorable bachelorette party theme:

Make your guest list

The bachelorette party is a day or weekend to celebrate your friend, but the theme should be appropriate for the rest of the guests, too. Before booking the venue and choosing a theme, it’s important to get a pulse on the type of crowd you’ll be inviting. Consider the invitee’s:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Relationship to the bride (a soon-to-be-Mother-in-law might not be on board with a risqué theme!)

Check the calendar

The season and time of year can be an excellent place to start planning your party theme. Here is a list of holidays and occurrences that might spark your imagination for a bachelorette party theme:

  • Christmas
  • New Year’s Eve
  • Groundhog Day
  • Valentine’s Day
  • St. Patrick’s Day
  • National Wine Day (May 25th)
  • April Fool’s
  • Easter
  • 4th of July
  • International Beer Day (1st Friday in August)
  • Summer/beach
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving

Choose the venue

Your theme should complement the venue seamlessly so sometimes it’s best to choose the venue first–especially if you need to book it in advance. You don’t want it to get nabbed up! Choose a venue that’s easily accessible, affordable, and has adequate space to fit all the guests. Sometimes it’s best to choose a “blank slate” customizable venue where you can add your own personalized decor and props.

Determine the party budget

There’s nothing worse than finding out that the party decor, supplies, and other expenses are going to cost you an arm and a leg when you’re well into planning mode. You can save quite a bit of money by DIY-ing many of the items but knowing up front how much you can afford to dedicate to the party will help you from going overboard.

Creep social media

You’re going to great lengths to plan a party that makes your friend feel special and show her that you’ve put thought into her special day, so it’s important to ensure it’s unique! To make sure she hasn’t been to a party with a similar theme, head over to social media to find photo evidence of the various bachelorette parties she’s attended that were outside of your friends’ circle. Pro tip: Dig in deeper by exploring her tagged photos!

What are her favorite things?

To make your bride-to-be friend truly feel special, plan a party that was planned with her favorite things in mind. Fill out the answers to these questions to help uncover an ideal theme she’ll love:

What is her favorite…

  • Book
  • Drink
  • Movie
  • TV show
  • Place to travel to
  • Hobbies
  • Board game
  • Cuisine, meals, desserts
  • Color
  • Music and band
  • Sports team

Don’t have the answers to some? You may need to subtly ask these questions over the course of your planning process.

Determine how you’ll personalize the party

To tie the theme together, personalized items have the ability to set the tone and ensure the theme is immediately clear to the guests.

Custom labels

Get personalized wine labels for the party component and personalized water bottle labels for the morning after. Your friend will be proud to tote her branded H20 bottle around while heading out to brunch.
