If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate the bachelorette party, something a little sexy, fun and confidence-boosting, consider a burlesque girls’ night. A burlesque theme for a bachelorette party is kind of like peanut butter and chocolate. They’re perfect for each other! For this kind of party it’s all about feeling glamorous, sexy, and learning something new.
Start by sending out a burlesque-themed invitation with all the details on it. Let the girls know if you’ll be traveling to the venue together, taking separate cars, whether they should dress in burlesque costumes, etc. I think it would be fun to have everyone dress up and transport via limo. Supply a couple glasses of champagne to help calm any jittery nerves.
Do a search for burlesque schools around your area. Most schools offer group packages and bachelorette-specific workshops. Some even add in extra bonuses like hair and makeup, games, and a final performance. Check out several schools to see which one fits your needs and the needs of your group. Keep in mind age range and how comfortable others are with learning the art of striptease. In many cases, burlesque schools have a range of dance options, from basic burlesque techniques to full on striptease.
If going out isn’t on the itinerary, consider having a private instructor teach dance moves in the home. Decorate the space to set the mood and provide food, drink, and games (maybe a dance competition?) to keep guests entertained and satiated.
Choose a theme like classic burlesque, 1920’s glam, or vintage cabaret. If you’re going all out, have guests dress up in appropriate attire like corsets, bloomers, fishnets, garters, Flapper dresses, heels, etc. If that’s not an option, just have guests dress in something they’re comfortable dancing in and provide feather boas and gloves if the studio doesn’t.
If anyone in the group gets a bit of stage fright, remind her that you don’t have to be a dance professional to participate or have the perfect body. Burlesque is all about celebration, admiration, and having a whole lot of fun!
