The Bride's Final Disco

For a bride with a sense of adventure and a love for the finer things in life, a glamping bachelorette bash is the perfect blend of relaxing and roughing it. Set up luxurious tents, serve the best s'mores ever, and tell scary relationship stories for a truly glam camping experience.

Encourage bridesmaids to dress as their favorite version of Barbie and decorate the party setting in nothing but true Barbie pink. Don't forget the pink Barbie drinks!
Drunk in Love
This bachelorette party theme only requires two major details: lots of Beyoncé and lots of booze. For the bride that adores Queen Bey and never says no to a cocktail, this casual theme will turn into an absolute rager.
Though the bride may very well go swimming on her honeymoon, the pun for the pool party bachelorette is too witty to pass up. When you bring all the besties in bikinis together for a pool party, fun and celebration are a given. Have all the bridesmaids wear matching suits while the bride sports white for that perfect poolside photo.
The name's Ette, Bachelor-Ette. Sultry and sophisticated, just like the bride, a Bond Girl-themed bachelorette is a true classic. Invite the girls for a black-tie affair with tons of martinis and endless Cosmopolitans, a few rounds of Black Jack, and a locked and loaded food spread.
The 80s Are Bach
Leg warmers, big hair, and shoulder pads make for the perfect 80s silhouette and a fun throw back bachelorette party. Grab the bride, all the girls, and dress up for an 80s-inspired night. Hit the town with Whitney tunes on blast and your brightest blue eyeshadow to celebrate the future Mrs.
Bride or Die
If the bride-to-be is a horror movie enthusiast, she'll love a bride or die bachelorette. Plan a marathon of her favorite thrillers, serve horror-inspired snacks, and let her know that her relationship will have a much longer life than the characters in the films.
The One Where She Gets Married
Whether she's more of a Monica or a true Phoebe at heart, any bride who loves Friends will love a bachelorette party inspired by the show.

Napa Valley Sip & Party
Even if you're not jet-setting to Napa Valley, you can still throw your California bride a party inspired by the day and night life of the Napa Valley scene.

Dazed & Engaged

Masquerade Before the Marriage
Planning a celebration for a classy bride who still loves a costume party? A masquerade party is the perfect way to celebrate her.

Decorate with lots of black, gold, and glitter for a girls' night full of upscale mystery.
Sitcom Wife Life
If the bride has a great sense of humor and a soft spot for cheesy sitcoms, this bachelorette theme will leave her rolling in laughter.

Wife of the Party
Most brides love a traditional bachelorette with all the diamonds and white. If the bride-to-be is also one who loves any excuse to party, you can mesh the two aesthetics for a "Wife of the Party" celebration. All the glittering white details and diamond motifs blend into the club attire, mixed drinks, and an irresistible dance playlist for a classic bachelorette bash that's always a hit.
Mamma Mia, Here Comes the Bride
An ABBA playlist, a setting inspired by the shores of Greece, and all the dancing a girl could ask for: it's the perfect bachelorette bash. Inspired by the movie of the same name, a Mamma Mia bachelorette is all about love between friends as one lucky girl plans to say "I do."
The bride may be well past the years of her childhood, but she's still a princess at heart. Throw her a sophisticated and grown-up Disney princess bachelorette. Feature all her favorite girls from the princess lineup in the decor. Have all the bridesmaids arrive dressed as a version of their favorite princess who's ready to party. Serve treats inspired by the princesses and host a special viewing of the bride's favorite film - her final time viewing it before she's officially a wife.
Taco-bout a bachelorette bash, a true fiesta is a great way to celebrate the bride on her final night of freedom. Decorate with bright and bold colors and set up a margarita bar that the "I do" crew will never forget.
My Big Fat Greek Bachelorette
It's a classic wedding movie with hilarious quotes that somehow find their way into everyday life. Host a My Big Fat Greek Wedding-themed bachelorette for the bride who loves a laugh. Go over the top with decor and make sure it's authentically Greek. Serve a spread of Mediterranean cuisine and watch the quotable film on repeat throughout the night.
What better way to prep for the big day than to spend the night getting pampered? Plan a luxurious spa party to help the bride destress before she walks down the aisle. Set spa stations for all the girls and sport matching loungewear for the occasion. A light food spread and refreshing cocktails complete the night.
Classy Tea Party
Spilling the tea with your girls takes on a whole new meaning when there's actual tea involved. Plan the most elegant tea party for a posh bride with a love of all things dainty. Start the festivities at noon, offer a full course of tea, and tell all the ladies to arrive in their best high tea attire.
For a bachelorette bash near the water - whether it's the beach, lake, or pool - you need the perfect theme to celebrate the bride-to-be. A final flamingle includes fun on the water, all the flamingo details, and a plan to party at all costs. Hit the beach, the dance floor, and the bar all in one day for one epic send-off for the future Mrs. If you're hosting the festivities at home, break out all the pink flamingo decor and make all the foods, desserts, and drinks as pink as a flamingo feather.
Slumber Party Send Off
One last sleepover before things change forever! Host a nostalgic slumber party for the bride and her best girls and recreate your younger years before that final step into adulthood. Makeovers, cheesy movies, junk food, and matching pajamas are staples for a slumber party bachelorette. You'll still giggle about boys all night long, but this time is forever.
Let's Go Girls!
It's the girl anthem of a generation - or maybe two! For the powerhouse bride, Shania Twain inspires a legendary bachelorette bash. Have all the girls dress in their favorite Shania persona, saving first choice for the bride, of course. Rock out to Shania's classics and make bags or tumblers for the whole crew that sport the unforgettable Shania chant, "Let's Go Girls." Cowgirl hats are also a must. White for the bride and hot pink for the bridesmaids.
What Happens in Vegas
If you can't plan an actual trip to the ultimate bachelorette destination, just make your own version of Vegas right in your own home. Casino games, lots of dancing, a buffet of appetizers, and the best drinks for partying help you bring Vegas to the bride even if you can't take the bride to Vegas.
Gym Bunny Bachelorette
For the fitness-focused bride and her crew, a gym bunny bachelorette is as fun as a spin class. Hit the gym together, sporting matching workout gear, of course. Afterwards, head home for a spread of protein-packed food, fitness-inspired cocktails and a celebration of the bride while the endorphins are still pumping.
Old Money Mrs.
The bride with more class than anyone you know deserves an old money soiree that screams sophistication.
