All right, so you’re the maid of honor. A lot is riding on you. You’re responsible for being in the bride’s corner and helping with wedding preparations, bridal showers, and everything else that comes with the job. You need to step your game up and be on top of everything, and there are certain qualities a maid of honor needs. It’s also your job to give her that one last hoorah—meaning, you need to throw her the ultimate bachelorette party. Don’t worry. We have you covered.
Here are 7 awesome bachelorette party ideas that are sure to please the bride.
1. Lingerie Shower
Whether you’re planning on taking the group out or keeping it close to home, this sexy theme is one of our favorite bachelorette party ideas. Shower the bride-to-be with new lingerie that she’ll be able to share with her soon-to-be spouse.
Have each guest purchase a small piece of lingerie and present it to the bride on the night of the party. You can even throw in some naughty bachelorette party gifts as well to keep things interesting!
2. Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt
Now this one you can really get creative with. And if you’re planning a destination wedding, the possibilities are endless.
Create a list of things related to your bride and her partner, and set off for the night in search of them as a group. You can split the group up into individuals, or do it all as one. Set a list of things across the city and travel the night away in search of the items (with drinks mixed in, of course!).
3. Head To Vegas
Vegas has been done a lot, but there’s a reason for it. If you’re looking for a place with plenty of options for things to do, then look no further than Sin City.
You can find a show to attend, or spend a night at one of the many clubs on the strip. There are also plenty of great food options. You can spend the day shopping over at the Caesar Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, or grab some drinks and walk the strip.
4. Attend A Spa
Every girl likes to get a spa treatment. Why not have that experience during your bachelorette party? Whether you’re going to a destination or staying closer to home, you can book spa time for you and the girls.
If you’re going to a destination for the bachelorette party, you could spend one of the days getting pampered. Here’s a great list of some of the top spas in the country.
This is always a great time. Have some great food and drinks, and sing the night away! This can help some of the girls get out of their comfort zone and do something different that they never thought they’d do!
6. Wine Tasting
Here’s one our favorite bachelorette party ideas. There are two options with this one: you can have everyone bring over a different bottle of wine and taste the night away, or you can find a local winery and schedule a tasting with all the girls. Depending on what place you decide to do your wine tasting, you can pack some snacks and games—and here’s a great guide on pairing wine with cheese.
7. Bachelorette Party Themed T-Shirts
Here’s a great bachelorette party idea: design some creative t-shirts that you and the girls can wear for the night. Make sure that the one for the bride stands out a little bit, though!
Here’s a great website to help you design and print your own custom t-shirts.

It’s becoming custom for the guests attending the bachelorette party to pay for the bride’s expenses. Whatever you’re planning to do, make sure to ask the others attending if they’re able to chip in as well as if they have a budget. It’s understandable if some aren’t able to afford it, and you don’t want to put them in a tough position. See what the girls are able to afford and try and plan around that. You don’t want to get a lot of great bachelorette party ideas only to find out some guests can’t afford it.
