How to Plan a Bachelorette Party

Steal These Tips For a Fun Bachelorette Party

Just like a wedding, every bachelorette party is different. Some brides-to-be want to relax, while others want to get wild and crazy. I asked you readers what kind of sending off party you'd like to have. Based on your answers, I found some useful tips for the rest of us to steal!

  • Get everyone on the same page. xxstardust says: I have told the girls who will be in my party well in advance — NO STRIPPERS. I will walk out and go home if there's a stripper, not even kidding.
  • Try something different. T. Jamey wrote: I really want to have a nice, classy and quiet bridesmaid tea. I've done the crazy running around, stripper and bar hopping routine with my friends so I want something much more mundane for myself.
  • Themes are good, even if they must involve genitalia. Gawjuslayd: "I want to have an insane weekend! I want penis pasta, penis straws, the bachelorette sash, the bride-to-be buttons, the T-shirts, games, EVERYTHING!!! I need to get it all out of my system and get drunk off my ass for the last time. We're talking MEN, MEN, and more MEN!!!"
  • For destination bachelorette parties, pick up a routine. AlexisSF says: I can't wait for my bachelorette party!! Perfect LA girls weekend — pool, nice dinners out, fun bar scene and repeat."
  • Stock up on wine. boredgourdles explains: "I had a grown-up pool/slumber party. I think the empty wine bottles outnumbered the partiers."

Do you have any tips to add?

No way! Wild bachelorette parties are so cliche! For my best friend's party this year, we are going to a White Sox game and out to dinner. For mine, I said no strippers like XXstardust did. My cousin tried to get one and I wound up leaving. :(

I think either a lovely and classy tea garden party or a day at the spa would be perfect!!! I am definitely not down for strippers or penis pastas or blow up dolls and bars!
