Bachelorette parties are pretty much always a lot of fun, but often once you’ve been to one of them, you’ve been to them all. So, if you’re looking to do something a bit more memorable for your own or a friend’s big night, it’s time to think outside the box. Do something different and no one will ever forget what a great night it was!
To get you started, here are some slightly quirkier bachelorette ideas for your consideration:
An Escape Room Adventure
Escape rooms have become pretty popular in the past couple of years, but there still aren’t that many bachelorettes who have thought of the activity for their big night. You can choose from a wide range of scenarios from tracking down a kidnapper to being hijacked on a plane and you have to work to put the pieces together and get yourself out of that escape room in 60 minutes flat. Your adrenaline will be pumping and everyone will have a great time bonding as they try to break free. Follow the game up with cocktails and a nice meal and you’ll have a fantastic, unforgettable night. Escape rooms can be found all over the country so chances are you should be able to find one close by that works for you.
Eat This, Shoot That
The Eat This, Shoot That tour that is available in Santa Barbara is a great idea for those of you who like a bachelorette party with a lot of wine. Not only are you treated to a tasting of some of the best local wines in the Funk Zone – home to some of the coolest eateries in the area, or at the Santa Barbara Wine Collective, but you also get let loose with a camera and learn how to shoot the fine food and drink you eat professionally. If your bride-to-be is a keen Instagrammer, she’ll adore this idea.
Get All Arty
The Artful Bachelorette in Los Angeles is an amazing live drawing class that gives you an entirely different kind of bachelorette experience. If that sounds a little boring, you should know that as well as drawing some very hunky guys, there’s plenty of the bubbly stuff on tap and a real party atmosphere. It can get surprisingly wild for a drawing class.
Go to Camp
Now that you’re all adults, you might think that your days of attending summer camp are behind you, but they really don’t have to be. Club Getaway located in Kent, Connecticut is an adults-only camp where you can indulge in the kind of fun you had as kids like singing around the campfire and swimming in the lake, with the added bonus that there’s booze and some distinctly more grown-up games like beer pong to enjoy too. What bride-to-be could resist?
Get Your Yoga On
If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more relaxing to do before the wedding, you can’t beat a soothing yoga retreat. You’ll all learn to channel your inner peace and have lots of fun knowing that you’ll all have a clear head in the morning.
