The New Bachelorette Parties: Part Two

Non-Traditional Bachelorette Party IdeasIf you are the maid-of-honor, bestie, sister or other friend put in charge of hosting a bachelorette party, it can be difficult to determine what’s the best way to celebrate the bride’s upcoming big day. It’s especially important to consider that not every bride wants a traditional bachelorette party. Some people prefer the kind of party they won’t be embarrassed to post on Instagram, even if their parents follow them. In many cases, this means that the wild and raucous events often associated with bachelorette parties are out. Fortunately a tame party can still be tons of fun. And as long as you plan an evening, or afternoon, that will respect the guest-of-honor’s taste, whatever kind of party you host is sure to be a great success!

New Takes on Old Fun

  1. You don’t actually have to hit bars or clubs to do some tasteful drinking. If your bride enjoys a nice glass of wine with her dinner, why not take her on a winery tour? You might be surprised just how many cities offer tours of vineyards, or at the very least the best wine shops in their local areas. There are many options in Austin, and throughout the surrounding Hill Country areas, for instance.
  • If she’s more of a beer drinker, consider taking her to a local craft brewery or a pub with an impressive selection of stouts and ales.
  • These are both great options if you’re hosting a joint bachelor and bachelorette party, too. Some couples would rather celebrate their upcoming union together.
  • A class where you learn to paint, while sipping wine, is another fun, non-traditional way to celebrate upcoming nuptials.
  • Just because a bachelorette party is considered a wedding tradition, don’t feel obligated to host any particular kind of party. Instead, focus simply on hosting an event which will allow the bride to have fun with her besties.
