Not all brides (or friends of brides) want a bachelorette party spent barhopping and drinking to excess. The same is true for male strippers. If you want an awesome bachelorette party, think outside of the box. Consider some of these fun bachelorette party ideas. Make your final decision based on the hobbies, likes, dislikes, and wishes of the bride. This is her party, so you want her to enjoy herself. What she wants goes, so check with her before making any final plans.

When making plans, check with the other bridesmaids and prospective attendees of the bachelorette party. Make sure that whatever plans you’re making fit within the budget of these people. Traditionally, they have to pay for not just their own costs, but also part of the bride’s costs. Typically, the bride need not pay for the bachelorette party. However, for a weekend away, it’s nice if she pays for at least her hotel and flights.
