8 Bachelorette Party Ideas For The Brides Who Hate Bachelorette Parties

December 14, 2017 by Linda DiProperzio

While bachelorette parties usually entail lots of drinking, dancing, and an inevitable trip to a male strip club, not every bride-to-be wants a night of debauchery for her big night out. Luckily, there are plenty of other options that will make the guest of honor happy and still ensure a good time for all of the other girls in attendance. Here are eight ideas to inspire a fun night out for all.

Girls at class

Take A Dance Class

Taking a group dance class can be a great bonding experience. You can do it just for fun, or try to work up a routine you can do together at the reception.

Woman at spa

Pamper Yourselves

Wedding planning can be super stressful--and not just for the bride! The maid of honor and bridesmaids surely need some pampering, so book a day at the spa for everyone! 


Bring Out Your Inner Picasso

There are plenty of paint and sip places all around the U.S., and many will close down for private parties. Bring in some food and wine (of course!) and create a masterpiece. You actually don't need any artistic abilities to paint a beautiful photo, and it will be something you can hang in your home and treasure for years to come.

Mud Run

Work Up A Sweat

For the active bride, plan something where she can move around and work up a sweat. You can plan anything to a private spin class, a local 5K or even a mud run that you can all compete in as a team.

Roller Coaster

Enjoy An Adrenaline Rush

Relive your childhood days by spending a night riding roller coasters at the local amusement park. Remember, screaming at the top of your lungs is a great stress-reducer!


Throw A Dinner Party

Gather all of your best girls for a special dinner party. You can have it in the private room of a restaurant--or even better, you can hire a chef to cook in your home for a truly memorable night.

Comedy club

Laugh It Up

What's better than spending the night laughing with your BFFs? Get tickets to a local comedy show--and inform the performer that you're there for a bachelorette party. He or she might want to give the bride to be a special shoutout during the routine!

Woman behind bar

Mix A Mean Cocktail

You can go to a bar and still learn something! Take a mixology class to learn how to create a delicious cocktail. Who knows--you might want to feature one of the recipes as a signature cocktail at the wedding.
