Bachelorette parties can often become extravagant affairs involving overnight stays. Alcohol and silly games can also feature heavily and of course this can make for a really fun party if that’s your thing, but if you’re budget or time is a bit more limited and you don’t think a booze-fueled party would go down well with the bride-to-be, there are still plenty of brilliant things you can arrange for a calmer, daytime bachelorette party.
If you need to keep an eye on costs, so you are choosing to host your party at home, you only need some relatively cheap supplies to create a really fun party atmosphere. Themed banners, balloons and confetti can go a long way to setting the perfect mood.
Brunch and the theatre
If you fancy a bit of culture, how about gathering up the girls to go and see a play or concert? It can be a great way to spend an afternoon, and you could lead up to it with a tasty, refined brunch.
A day of pampering
For the ultimate and relaxing parties, a day at a spa is bound to go down a treat. You can often find special bachelorette party deals on offer, but not to worry if your budget is a bit more limited. You can always set up your own pampering parlour at home and treat the bride (and each other!) to relaxing facials and fun makeovers.
For a slice of the high life, heading out to have afternoon tea is a brilliant plan for a party. If you’ve got the cash then you could really spoil the bride by booking high tea at a plush hotel. For those of you with tighter budgets, you can still lay out a really extravagant and impressive afternoon tea at home – get out that china and lay out a spread of little sandwiches and cakes with perhaps a glass of champagne to wash it down!
Daytime slumber party
A great option if you want a hit of nostalgia, arranging a really girly ‘slumber party’, complete with classic movies and plenty of snacks, can be a really fun low-cost option. Get your PJ’s on and have some ultra-girly fun.
You don’t need to have huge amounts of spare cash and time to plan a really memorable bachelorette party that your bride will love. In the lead up to a wedding the various costs involved can seem to spiral, you may be stuck choosing what to wear or selecting bridal shower gift ideas, but hopefully these suggestions will give you some food for thought and mean one less thing to fret about!
