They say that every little girl dreams of her future wedding day, and although we know that it often does (who can forget to imagine that they can find their fairytale ending and wear a beautiful dress), we are here grew up a long time. And while the thought of that perfect wedding is pretty adorable, we’re just as excited for another traditional event for any blushing bride – the bachelorette party!
Bachelorette parties have gotten a bad rap in recent years. We’ve all seen bridesmaids and can imagine why. If you haven’t seen it, do it! It is important to pay attention to those who are planning a hen! Stag and hen parties often bring together groups of friends with mixed success, and sometimes they are a little too expensive for those who pay for them.
However, there are some stag party traditions that we shouldn’t let go of anytime soon. These traditions can be fun and important bonding experiences for your bridal group – get inspired to create the best bachelorette party ever!
Keep it girly
Look, we’re all here to diversify your tribe when it comes to friendship groups. And of course, you should invite your best male friend over to your bachelorette party – that’s just good point for some fun. When you have a mix of men and women among your closest confidants, regardless of gender, they should be part of the action.
What we love less is the idea of having a combo stag and hen parties. The whole point, after all, is that you can have your “last night of freedom” – and not have to share the limelight with your intentions, whether you’re throwing back shots or sitting down for high tea at a spa.
Keep it local
Of course, we love the idea of getting on a plane and flying somewhere with glorious sun, sea, and sangria – but that’s not the point of a bachelorette party. Keeping it local can keep the cost down and the idea of indulging in these classic stag and stag traditions comes up.
We don’t suggest you have a few glasses of cheap white wine at the local pub before heading to the club you all went to as teenagers. But something as simple as renting a vacation home in a cheap location in the UK can be a lot cheaper and less stressful than checking that everyone has their passports fifty thousand times.
Theme your night
We know all those rude balloons and sashes from Bride To Be are not for everyone (if so, go for it!), But when it comes to theming your night out, or the main night if it’s a weekend event, you can make sure That everyone is safe gets involved in the fun. You could even incorporate the bachelorette party theme into the wedding theme itself! But unless you care too much about making it all match, it’s still a good idea to just ask everyone to wear a color, or an outfit that symbolizes something the bride loves. It’s a fun and easy way to make it feel less like another evening and more like an event.
Play some games
Who doesn’t love a good game? This fun tradition of stag and hen parties is sure to liven up your evening and add a nice change of pace to the experience. There are many games to choose from – from drunk jenga, the most embarrassing memory, to the “After Eight Challenge”. No matter which one you choose, they will accompany your group Prosecco sessions perfectly.
It’s been a tough time for all of us, and in the current circumstances, it may not be possible to have the bachelorette party of your dreams. But brighter days are around the corner – and hopefully if you incorporate some of the traditions above, you’ll still have a good time remembering them. But don’t put too much pressure either – remember, this is all about the future, woman! So make sure everything you do reflects what she loves leading up to her big day.
