If classic bachelorette parties remind you of young, raunchy party days you want to forget, perhaps you should look towards more up-scale ideas. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with the typical way of celebrating, it’s just not everyone’s flavor.
Plus, skipping out on the blackout bar scene can provide you a chance to connect with your bridesmaids and focus on the reason you brought everyone together: love.
Keep reading to find out the top 10 classy bachelorette party ideas to have the best celebration possible.
Relax at a Wellness Retreat
If you decide to do a complete 180 from the bar scene, you’ll end up at a wellness retreat.
This is a way to spend time together while taking care of yourselves (win-win!). You can choose particular retreats that focus on yoga, spa treatments, or meditation.
You can make it a part of your weekend or the main focus of it. Either way, everyone will walk away from the bachelorette party feeling refreshed and energized.
Rent a Fine Ride
That being said, going out on the town with a group of ladies is an irreplaceable experience.
To keep it classy, find luxury party bus or limo rentals. You can get them simply to ride around, talk, and drink, or you can use it as transportation to an up-scale venue.
Sip Wine and Cocktails
There’s something inherently sophisticated about wineries. Seeing the grapes on the vine while tasting them is a beautiful way to connect and celebrate.
You can choose a winery that fits your needs and potentially rent a space there if they have one available. Otherwise, consider doing a wine tour and visit multiple locations.
If beer is more of the bride-to-be’s flavor, choose higher end breweries that aren’t loud or crowded.
Head to a Scenic Rental
Thanks to Airbnb and other rental platforms, you can easily find unique, private houses to rent all over the world.
Look for one that feels secluded unless, of course, you’re wanting to stay in the city. Either way, get one big enough to sleep everyone and that offers a large kitchen, dining room, and living room for hanging out.
If you take this route, be sure to plan out snacks, drinks, meals, and decor ahead of time. You may even want to find fun ice-breakers and games to help everyone get to know each other.
Enjoy Nature By Glamping
Alternatively, you can find a rental that allows you to be outside while still having luxurious comfort.
This is referred to as “glamping”. You don’t have to bring any gear or tents — the hosts set it up for you. You simply choose the one you like (we recommend adorable and spacious yurts) and show up with your belongings.
Be sure to bring firewood and smores so that you can keep socializing through the night.
Put Your Pinkies Up
Put a modern twist on an ancient tradition by throwing a bachelorette tea party.
You can offer macaroons, various tea options, and adorable teacups to the guests. This can either be at a house rental, someone’s home, or at a tea lounge.
Add brunch to the equation and you’re bound to have a splendid time.
No matter what, choose something that’s private and elegant. If everyone’s into the idea, you can even set the dress code to something that makes it seem like you’re in a different time era.
Classy Bachelorette Party Ideas That Involve Class
One idea that’s becoming more popular is to go to a class with your girl gang.
Options include painting, cooking, dancing, and more. The best part about this option is that there is an activity as the center focus of the gathering, yet there’s still plenty of space and time to chat.
The options are endless and you can even bring a class to your home or rental if that’s more fitting to your group.
Book a Boudoir Session
For an intimate and empowering experience, you can book a private boudoir session for the entire party.
Boudoir is sensual photography that is aimed at capturing the unique beauty each person holds within them. It started in the 1920s and has become a popular way for women to express themselves in front of the lens to inspire their inner feminine energy.
It doesn’t have to be nude or raunchy — it’s up to your comfort level and what makes you feel gorgeous.
Dance the Night Away
To shake, move, and get silly together, plan an evening full of dancing.
Forego young, Miami-esque club scenes and instead head to chic venues. Choose one (or a few) that have the right aesthetics and, of course, the right music.
To really class things up, consider dressing in cocktail dresses and heels. Get all dolled up and make the town your oyster.
