Bachelorette Party Guide & Etiquette
About Bachelorette Parties.
This women-only tradition started long ago but in the ‘60s, during the sexual revolution, it really came to life. Brides-to-be were embracing their sexuality and swapping bridal showers for rowdy bachelorette parties. Today, the most fun (and feminist) act is having the kind of celebration you want - you can have a stripper and shots, but if you are more into a spa or beach weekend, enjoy it!
What to wear to a Bachelorette Party?
This 100% depends on the type of party. For a big night out, it's customary for the bride to wear white, so a little black dress or fun outfit is perfect. Every bride is different so best to ask if there are any themes or dress-codes prior to the event. Often times everyone will receive a t-shirt or accessory that you MUST wear so you want to be ready with jeans or an LBD.
The awkward question...what to bring to a Bachelorette Party?
Gifts for the bride aren't always required—but of course, if you are like us, you don't want to come empty-handed. Often the organizer(s) of the party will request you to bring something specific, lingerie, something old, new, blue etc... Check with her and if there are no rules, best to think of the bride and how to add to the fun. If you want to leave the sashes and crowns at Party City, we love party gifts like coasters, silly drink accessories, we love the Drinking Buddies. If you are looking for something thoughtful, brides are definitely in outfit planning mode and anything white is perfect, for jewelry, we recommend the Tie the Knot Necklace or Bracelet, if she is supper classic, the LUXE Studs in Natural are perfect.
