See if We Have Top-Rated
Local Caterers in Your Area
It's just par for the course these days to throw a bachelorette party that includes naked men, man parts, and feather boas. The bride usually wears a veil out on the town while her friends don matching tee shirts. But what if you're dealing with a bride who cringes at the thought of wearing anything R-rated in public?
Hit the Spa
Instead of jumping on a plane and heading to Vegas, carpool to a nearby town that offers lavish spa services. Line up a day of primping, pampering, and plucking as you gossip, drink champagne, and get pretty for a nice dinner out. Instead of making matching tee shirts, buy special wine charms to commemorate the bride's special weekend.
Make it Amusing
What do you do after you get engaged? Go to Disneyland, of course! Grab the girls, don the Mouse ears, and your best G-rated attitude. Team up with the bride's parents to dig up some childhood pics of family trips to Disneyland and use them on your invitations.
Chick Flick Movie Night
For the low-key bride, consider having a chick flick slumber party, complete with Julia Roberts, face masks, and lots of fattening treats. Grab sleeping bags and sprawl around the floor junior high style, playing games of MASH and talking about workplace crushes.
Go Back to the Place Where It All Began
This is a perfect idea for a group of bridesmaids who have never met the bride's family. Plan a trip back to the bride's hometown, complete with trips to see her schools, her favorite restaurants, and historical locations (ie: first kiss, first job, first date).
Go on a City Hop
If you've got cash to spend, grab a gang of girls and go on a city hop. Buy one way flights between three cities and spend one night in each. Pack a bag of clothes for your bride ahead of time and don't tell her when and where she'll be wearing each outfit.
This is a great idea for groups of friends who live in the same town. Start at one person's house for drinks and appetizers. Then move on to the next!
