4 Bachelorette Alternatives: Ditch the Strippers & Do Something New

Bachelorette parties don’t always have to be about strippers, nightclubs and little penis shaped straws. It’s the age of personalizaton – from invitations to ceremony readings to wedding playlists. Now more than ever, the entire process leading up the day of weddings is being tailored to reflect the personalities and quirks of the couple saying ‘I do.’ Here are 4 fun alternatives to consider:

A DIY Party – For the bride with an artsy side, plan a painting party so everyone can help put the finishing touches on your last-minute DIY wedding projects (think favors, centerpieces, escort cards, etc...). Be careful not to take on a project so big that it can't be done in one evening, or one that takes up too much time. You still want to allow time to have fun!

A Cooking Class - If the bride loves trying new things in the kitchen, sign your group up for a cooking class. You can learn some new tips to impress the hubs or have a friendly Top Chef style competition!

A Dance Class – Looking to master some new moves on the dance floor? Why not learn a choreographed routine inspired by your favorite dance movies or maybe something you can try out at the wedding reception?

Paint Ball - Have a group of crazy, adventurous, non-conformist women? This is the ultimate anti-wedding alternative. Find the worst bridesmaid dress you can at a thrift store and go paintballing in them!!!!
