So many times I have heard about the bride-to-be going out with her bridesmaids bar hopping and having fun. The problem with that is I don’t drink. Even if I did, what if I decided to have my niece be a junior bridesmaid? So I came up with a few ideas for a whole day of fun at home that doesn’t involve alcohol.
Start the day out by making tank tops for you and your bridesmaids. You can start with plain tank tops, either white or in your wedding colors and decorate them however you like, writing “bride” on yours and “bridesmaid” on the rest. You can draw cute things on them or for each bridesmaid, how they met the bride. You can do the same with sweat pants or shorts and spend the day hanging out in your matching gear.
You can also make cute little mini cupcakes. I found a recipe for ones that are made in the ketchup cups you get at fast food restaurants. The cups are inexpensive, at around $4.00 for a box of 250 cups on The WEBstaurant Store. You can make a large number of them in a short amount of time so you can make them the night before or have fun doing it as part of the party. You can frost them in your wedding colors and enjoy them all day long.
After lunch, you can have a spa day at home. Use it to prepare for your wedding day, doing your nails, waxing and having fun with facials. If you have younger girls there, such as a junior bridesmaid or the flower girl, you can let them have fun trying to do your make-up and taking pictures of the results.
If you want to keep the “make the bride-to-be do embarrassing things” aspect of a bachelorette party, why not do karaoke? Set up the machine in your living room or wherever you want and sing your heart out, whether you can sing or not. It’s a good way to let loose and have fun hanging out with your friends.
Finish up the night by ordering pizza from your favorite pizza place and having a sleep over in your new tank tops and sweat pants or shorts. This works well if you decide to have your bachelorette party the night before the wedding, because then you are all together the morning of the wedding and can be organize and get the day started.
Have any fun and sober bachelorette party ideas of your own? Share them in the comment section and if you use one of these, I’d love to hear how it goes for you!
