Wedding season’s right around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning those bridal showers and bachelorette parties. Here are a few spring bachelorette party ideas that are as fresh as the flower buds in your backyard.
Back to Nature
Time to get outside, but forget the mosquito bites, sleeping bags, and midnight runs to the nearest tree. A girl can be one with nature in a more glamorous way. Combine creature comforts and the great outdoors with a glamping trip. Check out your local camping sites and chic camper rentals like the one above offered by Sisters on the Fly – an outdoor women’s group that plans adventure trips around the nation. Depending on where the bachelorette party is located, activities can include kayaking and canoeing, horseback riding, campfire barbecues, lawn games, and photo shoots.

A wine tour is the perfect way to keep it casual while still enjoying the spring weather. Grab the girls and explore the fields, expand your wine knowledge, and of course drink wine! Some wine tours also include lunch/dinner or have a restaurant on site.

Surprise the bride-to-be with a bachelorette party that is equal parts fun and fitness. A wellness retreat includes everything a stressed-out bride needs: healthy, fresh food, yoga, meditation, massage, and plenty of R&R.

If you’re not too concerned with celebrating a last fling before the ring, consider getting the guys and girls together for a coed bachelor/ette party. Have a dinner party, picnic on the lake, backyard barbecue, visit an amusement park, go on a pub crawl, or engage in a few “battle of the sexes” activities.
Can you sense spring in the air? A little warmer wind, a peek of sunshine, a sleepy blossom opening its petals to the sky. Yes, spring has about sprung and with it some fresh ideas for party planning. Here, three spring-worthy bachelorette party ideas:
Take to the Sea…
or the river or lake or whatever body of water you happen to have near and pile all the girls on a boat for some much needed water relaxation. Know someone with a big enough boat? Awesome! If not, look up boat charter companies around your area. Some even offer catering and drinks, but you can always pack a picnic and stock the cooler. Blast some tunes, go for a swim, do some sundeck tanning (remember the sunscreen!), or just relax over a glass of wine.
Stop and Smell the Roses
Flowers are the epitome of spring: the colors, the perfume, the baby buds waiting to bloom. So what better way to honor spring and the bride-to-be than with a flower arranging party? If the weather permits, have the party outside or under a covered porch and welcome guests with a pretty box of supplies (flower snips, foam, twine, buttons, ribbon). Have plenty of fresh cuts (peonies, roses, ferns, leaves, etc.) for guests to choose from and offer inspiration by placing your own creations on the table. You could even have bare pots available for guests to embellish. Serve cocktails and finger food.
Gather the girls for a weekend of champagne, cupcakes, and pillow fights. The party can be hosted in-home or splurge on a weekend hotel getaway. Watch movies, read magazines, jump on the bed to 80s tunes, soak in a hottub. The sky’s the limit!
