A bachelorette party is sometimes held for women before they get married. This type of party is different from a bridal shower in that this is purely for entertainment purposes only and sometimes includes alcohol. This is a chance for the women involved or invited to the wedding to let loose and enjoy themselves. In many cases, this party is considered the bride's last hurrah.
Work Your Magic in Front of the Camera
Contact the bride's wedding photographer and set up a surprise, girls-only session. Invite her groom to join towards the end, so they can snap some couples' portraits as well.
Go On a "Naughty & Nice" Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts aren't just for summer camp or family reunions anymore — add flirty items to the list to celebrate the bride's last night of singledom. Split up into two teams, and share photos of your finds via Instagram; the first group to complete everything wins!
Take a Private Group Dance Lesson
Take a cue from Lady Gaga, who celebrated her 26th birthday with her nearest and dearest at a SoulCycle session. Zumba and pole dancing will also guarantee some laughs.
Hit the Slopes for a Weekend
You don’t have to know how to ski to head to a fabulous ski resort with the girls. Whether you're a black diamond pro or get hives at the mere thought of going on the lift, everyone can enjoy the perks of a ski lodge lounge — especially if it involves curling up by the fire and flirting mercilessly with sexy ski instructors.
Shop It Out
Celebrate your bride's first gown fitting by going for a group shopping trip afterwards. Visit a fantastic flea market or vintage stores, where you'll get the most bang for your buck.
