Brides want to have one last hurrah before they officially become a Mrs., but not everyone is into a weekend of debauchery in Vegas. Instead, find a creative–and just as fun–way to celebrate her last days as a bachelorette with these inspiring ideas.
Be sure to check out these creative food and drink bars for your wedding, plus the 7 questions to ask before choosing your wedding party.
Comedy Club. Who doesn’t love to laugh? Catch a show at your local comedy club or try to get tickets to see a big name (like Kathy Griffin).
Paint Class. This popular ladies night out is a great bachelorette party idea. Bring your own wine and create your own masterpiece. The best part is even those without much artist ability can still paint something worthy of hanging on the wall.
Theme Park. Spend the day riding roller coasters and eating cotton candy at your nearby amusement
Sporting Event. If the bride is a sports fanatic, catching a game will be a good time for her.
“Broadway” Show. Theatre lovers will enjoy seeing a local production, whether it’s Broadway or way, way
Spa Day. Relax and rejuvenate with a day of massages, mani/pedis and more.
Mud Run. Get active and have some dirty fun at a mud run. Just be sure to do it well in advance of the wedding day—you don’t want the bride to walk down the aisle with sprained ankle (hey, it happens).
Wine Tour. Tour a nearby winery or call a local wine shop to sample an array of reds and whites.
Concert. Get tickets to see some live music—if you can dance to it, even better.
Camping. Spend the weekend roughing it in the elements. Not into the outdoors? Try glamping, where you can enjoy Mother Nature, but sleep indoors.
Cooking. Foodies will love learning to create new dishes, not to mention you get to eat your meals after the class.
Dance Class. Whether it’s hip hop, tap, pole or belly, learning how to dance is always good for a few laughs—especially when some of you have two left feet.
