Classy bachlorette party ideas

A few weekends ago I threw my friend Corinne a bachlorette party in Madison, WI. I found some great ideas on Pinterest that I used, and wanted to share with all of you! (sorry some of the pictures aren’t great, some of them were taken with my phone.

Gift bags I made for all the girls filled with dark chocolate, candy rings, candy necklaces that we all wore. The gift tag said “I found a man, but I still need my girls”.

I made buttons for all of us to wear that said “She’s saying I do…want another drink”. I used a gold metallic marker to go over the o in do, and put a gemstone on top to make it look like a ring. For the brides button I made it say “I’m saying I do…want another drink”. (original idea found here).

I hot glued a thrift store veil onto a blue headband (something blue!) and also attached a pretty headpiece for the bride to wear. For the rest of us I made headbands with funky bows and feathers.

We all brought something pink to pass. I made watermelon fluff with a pretzel crust. Click here for the recipe.

I also made some Tastefully Simple juicy watermelon margarita slush! (which is unfortunately no longer available but there are some other great drink buckets here)!

One of the girls brought these strawberry margarita jello shots, in strawberries! They were so good and super cute! They even had salt on the top.

We had strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting. So yum!

We played a few fun games. I made this celebrity spouse game in Microsoft Word to see how many we could all get right and whoever got the least amount took jello shots with the bride. I realized afterwards that Angelina & Brad aren’t married yet…but basically…right?! (original idea found here)

Then I made up some mad libs about the happy couple, even in their wedding colors, and we had a blast going around filling them in. At the end I read them aloud to all the girls, it was pretty hilarious. :)

Here is the beautiful bride sporting her headband I made and bling-pop!

We took a moonlight cruise on Lake Mendota…it was beautiful & windy! We had gorgeous views of the capital all lit up at night.

Not a great pic but you get the idea…beautiful!

Then we headed downtown for the rest of the night!

Thanks for including me in your special day Cor! You will be such a beautiful bride.

So a bachlorette party really doesn’t have to be all about tacky you-know-whats……!
