Who plans the bachelorette party?

The bachelorette party is traditionally planned and organized by the maid of honor, with additional help from the bridesmaids. So if that’s you, you have the special honor and privilege of coming up with some awesome bachelorette party ideas and bach activities(but don’t worry, we’re here to help!).

However, depending on the wedding party and whether or not the bride has one, the duty of planning can fall to friends, as well. That said, if you’re tapped for maid of honor duties, the bachelorette party is typically one of your top priorities.

Who pays for the bachelorette party?

The bridal party traditionally pays for the bachelorette party, but it’s up to you how you want to split the bill. Just be sure to consider everyone’s budgets when you’re making plans and sorting through these bachelorette party ideas, so that you’re not expecting too much from any one person.

If you’re considering out-of-town bachelorette party ideas, travel expenses will typically fall on the individuals invited. This is one party where guests can pay for their own flights and lodging.

However, there is one person who shouldn’t have to pay, and that’s the bride! Unless she insists, the bridal party should cover as much of her costs for the bachelorette party as possible.

Who to invite to the bachelorette party

Not sure who to invite to the bachelorette party? The invitation list should, at the very least, include all members of the bridal party.

Beyond that, check in with the bride to see who else she’d like to invite! She may have friends and family coming from out of town, or she may want to invite close friends who aren’t in the wedding party. The bachelorette party invite list can be as intimate or as large as she likes.

When do you have a bachelorette party?

Choosing a date for the bachelorette party often depends on the type of wedding and the type of party. If you’re going out of town for the bachelorette party, it’s best to plan it a month or two before the wedding. You’ll also want to think about which bachelorette party ideas and activities would resonate most with the bride, and pick a season that’s appropriate for them.

On the other hand, if the bride has guests coming from out of town she’d like to invite, then it might be best to plan the bachelorette party during the wedding week, so those guests can extend their wedding travel plans to include the party. Just make sure everyone in the bridal party has a few days to recover!

Now, let’s jump into our favorite bachelorette party ideas!

The ’90s are in, baby! Roller skating rinks are such a fun hit of nostalgia and make for one of our favorite bachelorette party ideas. You can encourage guests to dress in a ’90s theme and pass out all the Lip Smackers and pizza (and these adorable retro roller skate earrings!).

We also love the idea of setting up a “Glamour Shots” photo booth and hitting the mall. And what better way to wrap up this fun event than a classic slumber party, complete with your favorite ’90s rom-coms?

4. Fun Cowgirl Theme Bachelorette Party Ideas

What is a bachelorette party without a pink cowgirl hat? Something about donning a hat and boots just brings out the fun — no matter where you plan the party.

If you love music and you love music festivals, chances are this bachelorette party idea is already a no-brainer for you. Gather the crew (and your fave festival clothes) and make it a bach weekend to remember!

This bachelorette party theme is perfect if the bride is planning a fall wedding, since so many music festivals happen in the spring and summer months. After all, who said the bach party has to happen a couple days before the wedding? We love the idea of planning it weeks or months in advance and making it its own special thing.

7. Fun Themed Bar and Escape Room

Sometimes it’s the kitschy bachelorette party ideas that are the most fun. Is there a local themed bar that you’ve yet to hit up? From tiki bars to speakeasies, a theme bar is one of the best activities to kick off the bachelorette party.

From there, load up and visit an escape room! If you haven’t done one yet, they are SO fun. And in this rare case, the cheesier the better.

8. Fun Private Cooking Class Ideas

Foodies, this one’s for you. Booking an in-home cooking class is such a fun way to celebrate the bride-to-be! You might have to do some searching in your area — or call in a friend who’s a great cook!

Either way, bachelorette party ideas that include dinner AND fun activities will always be a win in our book.

9. Unique Handmade Pasta Class Ideas

While we’re on the topic of fun food-based bachelorette party ideas and activities, the only thing better than eating carbs with your BFFs is making carbs with your BFFs!

If you’re near New York, Chicago, Boston, Las Vegas, Dallas, or Los Angeles, Eataly offers pasta + pizza-making classes, which we totally recommend as fun (and delicious!) bachelorette party ideas. Because if you can’t go to Italy, you may as well eat like you’re there!
