9 Non-Cliché Bachelorette Party Ideas Every Bridal Party Should Consider

Just like your wedding day, you might want to get a little creative when it comes to your bachelorette party. Have fun with your girls–and try something different–with these nine options.

1. Be adventurous. Looking for a good adrenaline rush? Go zip lining, parasailing or rock climbing. You can always do the more traditional dinner and drinks later on, where you can toast your bravery.

2. Work up a sweat. For brides who love to work out, take a Soul Cycle, kickboxing or even a yoga class with your maids. Then you won’t feel so guilty if you decide to go out later.

3. Learn to mix drinks. Forget about a cooking class or wine tasting–instead, learn how to mix a mean cocktail or two at a bartending class. The lesson will come in handy when you start hosting parties and holidays in your new home.

4. Get artsy. Paint nights are all the rage right now, but there are other ways to explore your creative side. Take a pottery class, learn to knit or even sketch a live model to bring out your artistic talents.

5. Shoot it up. For the bride who has a real competitive side, try a round of paintball. This is a great idea for a joint bachelor/bachelorette party–and have the losing team buy dinner later on.

6. Host a slumber party. Throw an old-fashioned girls sleepover with comfy pajamas, movies, pizza and popcorn, facials and more. If you want to live it up, rent a hotel room and order up some room service, then hit the spa the next morning.

7. Bring out your inner James Bond. If you live in NYC or are planning to take a trip to Vegas for your bachelorette party, check out Stiletto Soy School. From mind-blowing defensive tactics to high-speed stunt driving, you’ll learn all the skills you need to take a bad guy down.

8. Listen to your favorite tunes. Go to a music festival to see your favorite performers live. You’ll still spend your time dancing (and probably drinking), but in the great outdoors and not some crowded club.

9. Volunteer. While the wedding is all about you (and yes, the groom), it’s also important to give back–especially when you’ve been so blessed. Organize a Habitat for Humanity trip, serve a meal at a soup kitchen or visit the local animal shelter.
