Are you the maid or matron of honor? If so, congratulations! It is an honor and privilege to be asked to stand next to the bride on her special day. But along with the privilege comes responsibility, and one of the many responsibilities is to plan and throw the bachelorette party.
You might be wondering exactly where to start in order to pull off a great bachelorette party, and we have your answer: start with the theme! Whether it’s a trip or a staycation, a themed party is the perfect way to add some extra fun and excitement to the bride’s final fling.
These five cute and unique themes are simple and easy to do. Every bride is different, so take these ideas and make them your own to give her the perfect send-off into married life.
If you can’t make it to the beach, bring the beach to the bride! Find a place with some sun and a pool and you’ve got the first part of this theme nailed. But, honestly, you can bring the tropics to any party anywhere - all you need is the right decor! So, bring on the flamingos, the pineapples, and the oversized palm leaves! Have the guests wear beach-inspired outfits, make some poolside piña coladas, and throw on your favorite tunes to bring everything together. To top it all off, embroidered towels, totes, and sunglasses make fantastic tropical-themed gifts for the bride and bridesmaids. Amazon, Etsy, or even your local party supply store will have everything you need. Check out the links below for inspiration!SHOP THIS THEME:
Music Festival Theme
Does the bride love music festivals? Then she’s sure to love it as the theme for her bachelorette party! This is an absolutely perfect send-off for the bride-to-be who loves music, dancing, and just having a good time. With such a wide variety of festivals from Coachella to EDC to Stagecoach to Bonnaroo, simply pick the bride’s favorite and your theme is set! For a Coachella-themed party, you can recreate the festival experience with a backyard camp out, complete with tents, flower crowns, and, of course, great music. If your bride is more of a Stagecoach gal, look for matching bandanas, have everyone wear cowboy boots, and you could even bring in an instructor to teach the group how to line dance.SHOP THIS THEME:
Last Meow or Last Bark Theme
If the bride-to-be is a total cat or dog lady, then this is the theme for her - and it’s an easy one for everyone planning! Incorporating cat or dog themed items, like custom ears, cat-eye sunglasses, and cat/dog themed matching shirts, will make a statement whether you’re staying in or going out. If she has her own four legged friend, you can even have special decor or gifts created with her pet on them. It’ll be the purr-fect paw-ty for the animal loving bride!SHOP THIS THEME:
Brunch and Boujee Theme
We all know that brunch is a weekend staple. Dressing up, drinking mimosas, enjoying a beautiful day with friends - what’s not to love? If you’re planning a single day soirée rather than a full weekend bash, a bachelorette brunch is the perfect option. Whether you’re hosting it at someone’s home or at a venue, encourage everyone to dress up and make sure that you decorate! Create custom menus, order monogrammed champagne flutes, set up a mimosa bar, and the bride will be in boujee brunch heaven.SHOP THIS THEME:
If you have a bride who loves to dress up, then a throwback bachelorette bash is the one for her! Matching fanny packs, t-shirts, and scrunchies, and you’re ready for a 90s themed weekend of boy band jams, Julia Roberts rom-coms, pizza and junk food. Brightly colored outfits, karaoke, and side ponytails and you’re all set to throw it back to the 80s. So, raid your mom’s closet, look through your storage bins, and hit the thrift stores, there are hidden treasures everywhere!SHOP THIS THEME:
