As a woman preparing to get married, you’re probably looking forward to your bachelorette party.  It’s a great opportunity to get together with your closest friends and celebrate your upcoming nuptials.  And these days, there are countless types of parties that brides-to-be are going for.  Instead of wild evenings at night clubs, the get-togethers are moving elsewhere and making more people feel welcome.

Go camping:  Bring your bachelorette party outdoors with a camping trip!  Take the time to relax and enjoy nature with your friends around you. This doesn’t have to be hardcore camping, but ‘car camping’ with your vehicle nearby is just as good.

Grab the guys:  Do you and your spouse have a group of friends that you both enjoy hanging around?  Then do something with all of them!  Bachelorette parties don’t have to be exclusively female if all of your friends want to get together.

Relax with a spa day:  Who says you have to be busy to have fun?  Book yourselves into a day spa for massages, facials, and pedicures.  It will make you feel pampered and relaxed before the big day.

Take a cooking class:  Want to learn something new?  Sign up for a cooking class (or any other class that you might enjoy) and celebrate by learning a new skill.

Have a sleepover:  This option is super inexpensive, so it’s great if you’re trying to cut expenses before your wedding.  You can also splurge a little more and get a hotel room if you want things to be a little fancier and avoid the hassle of cleaning up!

Go extreme:  Have you ever wanted to try skydiving, zip lining, or bungee jumping?  This is your chance to do it with all of your friends (or at least the braver ones).

Take a road trip:  Grab a handful of your besties for a weekend road trip.  Pick a destination that you’ve always been interested in but never had time to go to, or visit a place from your childhood that holds a lot of special memories.  Make it even more fun by heading to a theme park or taking part of the local nightlife scene.

Take in a show:  Look for tickets to a fun concert or a comedy show.  Each person can pay for their own ticket, which will help keep the costs down.

Have a game night:  This is another great option for a girls’ night in.  Set up a table with poker and other card games, or have bachelorette bingo with prizes.  Serve fun finger foods and drinks for a full, fun night.

The most important thing when it comes to celebrating the end of your single life is that you are comfortable and having fun.  Choose an activity that suits your personality and your budget, and that your friends will enjoy as well.  Challenge yourself to have fun in a whole new way.
