Monday's Montage: Fun Bachelorette Party Ideas

One of the main responsibilities of the MOH is to plan the last fling before the ring. If you're wedding is coming up soon, remind her it's about that time!! Here are some great ideas on a cash-strapped bridesmaid's budget.

Hilarious Photo Ops
When it comes to bachelorette get-togethers, photos fall into two camps: pretty yet predictable group shots and candids that practically come with their own "no-Facebook sharing" policy. Strike a happy medium with this creative mugshot idea, where you capture the entire group the next morning. How cute is the "Maid of Dishonor?"
Customized Invitations
This corset-inspired invite is one of the most-pinned bachelorette party ideas on Pinterest. If the bride has specifically requested that she is open to receiving presents (aka pretty underthings), create inserts with her size, which eliminates the guesswork for guests.

Coordinating Outfits
Arguably, one of the best parts of attending a bachelorette party is getting all dolled up. But after splurging on that bridesmaids dress and shower gift, a new outfit might be on the bottom of your priority list. Consider a Little Black Dress affair, where all the guests wear their fave LBD already hanging in their closet, putting due focus on the bride (who dresses in white or a bold neon shade).

Or purchase inexpensive t-shirts or button-downs that you can customize and wear again while prepping on the wedding day

Favors They'll Actually Use
We can't wait to create our own whimsical, DIY caricature wine glasses, inspired by this high-end custom design. There are tons of tutorials out there—all you need is special paint purchased from a craft store and a steady hand.

I love this post. My friend is getting married, and I have been needing some fun ideas for her bachelorette party. I love your photo op suggestion. It is similar to what we did for my bachelorette party five years ago, but instead, we did a silly group photo at Glamour Shots. I still have the photo framed and hanging on my wall. I checked out some Glamour Shots price reviews, and it still seems fairly affordable for anyone interested. I would do it again for my friend, but I want to do something unique to us, so I may nab your idea. Thanks.

What a great friend you are! Definitely try it, you know the photo op will be a hit with your girlfriends if you still have yours framed on your wall. Have fun!
