The Best Bachelorette Party Ideas for 2024


Consider your bachelorette party the big day before the big day. Your bach is a way for you to let loose with your bridesmaids and, also, to thank them for hanging in there with you through the years -- and through all that arduous wedding planning. It’s also a way for your bridesmaids to send you off into wedded bliss. So, it’s important that your bachelorette party is tons of fun for everyone.

Like weddings, bachelorette parties have their own trend cycles. For 2024, many brides are embracing smaller, more intimate bachelorette parties; rather than destination trips, they’re hosting fun get-togethers out of their homes or signing up for classes at local studios. As many brides get ready for fall weddings, many of them are embracing summer bachelorette parties with tons of sunny, outdoor events like beach parties, glamping weekends, and picnics.

Here, we’re giving you the rundown on what’s trending for bachelorette parties in 2024.

26 of the Best Bachelorette Party Ideas for 2024

Throw a beach party

Fall weddings are on the rise. So, if you’re having an autumnal wedding, you’ll want to take advantage of the summer season by hitting the beach for your bachelorette party.

Be sure to pack enough beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas for everyone. Go full beach party with a game of volleyball or ultimate frisbee, or a few boogie boards to ride those waves. For a more low-key event, bring a spread of snacks and a few coolers filled with your girls’ favourite drinks, and just soak up the sun.

Stage a photoshoot

You’ve heard of wedding portraits, but what about bachelorette portraits? It’s only so often that all the gal pals get together, so you’ll definitely want to commemorate it with a bachelorette party photoshoot.


Hire a professional photographer and stage a photoshoot either at your venue or at their studio space. The theme of the shoot is totally up to you: ask everyone to dress to the nines or bring a trunk of silly costumes and props. Think wigs, angel wings, and massive sunglasses, all vintage and pre-owned to keep things sustainable, of course. If you’re already having a themed bachelorette party, this photoshoot is a great way to remember everyone’s on-theme outfits.

Have a picnic

Throwing your bachelorette party in the spring or summer? Benefit from the balmy, beautiful weather by throwing a picnic for your bachelorette party.

The theme of your picnic is up to you and depends on your locale and your menu. Love spring flowers? Throw a garden party-style picnic in your local park or botanical garden -- or your own backyard -- with dainty finger sandwiches and scones laid atop a gingham blanket. Is the beach more your style? Bust out those striped towels, lay out a spread of cheese, grapes, and baguette, and have a champagne toast as the sun sets over the water. To keep waste to a minimum, be sure to pack up all your food items in tupperware containers.

Hit up the roller disco

Indulge your love of the 70s and 80s by holding your bachelorette party at the local roller rink. These retro venues are few and far between, but a quick Google search will help you locate the one closest to you.

Get your girls to dress the part in their best vintage athletic gear and disco-inspired looks (we’re thinking fluorescent bodysuits, hot pants, funky flares, and tons of scrunchies).

Do karaoke

Want to sing your heart out? There’s no better place to do it than at karaoke.

If you want to do karaoke for your bachelorette party, you have a few different options to choose from. The most classic choice is to hit up your local karaoke bar. This means you and your girls will be getting up on stage to perform your songs in front of a crowd, which is a ton of fun with the right bridal party. 


If you’re more stage-shy, you can also book out a private karaoke room. This option is much more intimate, but no less fun! A private room just means you get to sing, party, and imbibe amongst yourselves, plus you have total control over the tunes all night long.

Visit a psychic

Are you or your bridesmaids a little superstitious? Do you love horoscopes and healing crystals? Then why not go all out on it and visit a psychic for your bachelorette party?

It’s the perfect opportunity for you (the bride) to learn all about your future with your new husband and for your bridesmaids to take a glimpse into the crystal ball, too. Whether you believe in it or not, it’s a fun, once-in-a-lifetime experience -- and one that you’ll all spend lots of time unpacking over drinks, afterwards. 

Go to the rodeo bar

If Beyonce and Bella Hadid have anything to say about it, country is in. So, round up your girls, put on your Stetsons, and channel your inner cowgirls by hitting up the local rodeo bar. You know, the one with the mechanical bull.

Between beer and hot wings, challenge everyone in your party to ride the bull. If you’re feeling cheeky, you can even place bets on who you think can ride it out the longest. Yeehaw!

Rent a limousine

Want to go ultra-bougie for your bachelorette party? Consider renting a limousine for your bachelorette party.

The limousine, here, can serve two purposes: it can be the ride to your bachelorette party venue or it can be the main event, itself. If you’re looking to make a party of your limo ride, get your girls to dress to the nines, ensure the backseat bar’s properly stocked, and ask the driver to take a night ride through your city’s glitziest burroughs.

Love the limo idea but want to keep things sustainable? Ask your bridesmaids to purchase carbon offset credits to make up for the mileage.

Have a spa day (or weekend)

The spa day is a bachelorette classic for a reason. Who doesn’t love getting pampered -- especially after spending months planning your wedding to a tee?


Book out a local day spa and give yourself and your girls the royal treatment with manicures, pedicures, facials, and any other trendy beauty treatments you’ve been wanting to try out. (Cold plunge, anyone?)

If you want to make your bachelorette party a relaxing, weekend-long event, you can also book out a suite (or two) at a spa retreat in your area. 

Go glamping

You’ve heard of camping, but have you heard of glamping? The buzzword is a combination of “glamour” and “camping”, and is one of the trendiest bachelorette party ideas for 2024.

If you’re having a fall wedding, glamping is a great way to take advantage of the summer weather in a more elevated way than your standard camping weekend or beach party.

The key to glamping is to make the camping experience as luxurious as possible with lots of haute extras. This means renting XXL tents, elevated cots, and a plush mattress to make your sleep experience as comfortable as possible. You’ll also want to cook gourmet versions of classic camp food (swap out those hotdogs for artisanal bratwurst) and decorate your campground with tiki torches or paper lanterns.

Go vineyard hopping

Love wine? (Who doesn’t?) Rather than going bar-hopping, consider going vineyard hopping for your bachelorette party.

Do a little Googling to find vineyards close to your area. If wine country’s a drive (or a flight) away, consider making a weekend of it by booking out a cute, old-school B’n’B for you and your bridesmaids. 

Take a road trip

Take a page or two from Thelma and Louise’s book and take a road trip for your bridesmaids party.


The destination of your road trip is totally up to you and depends on where, exactly, you’d like to visit. Do you want to drive to Las Vegas in a Mustang convertible (like the aforementioned film heroines)? Or maybe you’d like to scale the Rockies for a weekend of camping or cruise through wine country to that hot new vineyard. The possibilities are endless. 

And remember: when it comes to a road trip, it’s not so much the destination but the journey that matters. So throw on a great playlist, roll the top down, and put that pedal to the metal.

To make up for the fuel burned, tally up your mileage and ask your party to purchase carbon offsets after the trip’s finished.

Go on a ski-cation

Are you a ski bunny? Then bring your bachelorette party to the slopes.

Head out for a day of skiing at your local hill or fly out to a larger resort (Whistler? Vail?) for a week or weekend of powder. Either way, you’ll get to hit the slopes and the chalet for a little après ski imbibing. The best of both worlds. 

Have a tea party (or go for high-tea)

If you’re looking for an elevated daytime get-together for your bachelorette party, consider a tea party.

Holding a tea party at home is fun and easy. You can choose to keep it casual or pull out all the stops. Those include vintage teacups, artisanal teas, finger foods like cucumber sandwiches and rum cakes, lace doilies, and floral tablecloths.

Don’t want to have afternoon tea at home? Go for high-tea, instead. Local tea rooms are sure to serve up high-tea with all the bells and whistles you’re looking for. Another tip? Check out high-end hotels in your area, as they frequently host afternoon tea, as well.


Throw a backyard BBQ

Want to make your summer bachelorette party an ultra-relaxed affair? Throw a barbeque in your backyard.

Depending on the menu and the decor, your backyard BBQ can be as casual or elevated as you choose. Looking for something super laid-back? Set up a DIY hotdogs-and-burgers station. If you want something a little more bougie, you might want to consider grilling up more elevated fare like steak, pork ribs, shrimp kebabs, or smoked salmon.

Hold a game night

Do you and your girls have a competitive streak? Unleash it with a game night bachelorette party.

The kinds of games you’ll be playing are up to you. Do you and your bridesmaids have a favourite board game? Then you’ll definitely want to bring that one to the table. Besides the classic board games (like Monopoly or Clue), you can spice up your game night with risqué options like poker, Twister or prosecco pong (think of it like a classier version of beer pong).

Have a paint and sip night

Paint and sip nights are trending right now, so why not host one for your bach?

A paint and sip party is when friends come together to paint -- sometimes guided by a professional artist -- while enjoying drinks like wine and cocktails. These events are sometimes hosted by local art studios, but you can also hold your own paint and sip night at home -- all you need are some art supplies, a few bottles of the wine or liquor of your choice, and a bit of creativity.

Have a craft night


Painting not for you? You can host any type of craft night for your bachelorette party.

Think of crafts that you and your bridesmaids love to do -- or would love to learn. Have you been meaning to get into knitting or crocheting? What about jewelry-making or vision-boarding? Whatever your poison, you can host your own “craft and sip” night at home.

Stage a murder mystery

Love true crime? Then turn your bachelorette party into an IRL murder mystery.

To do this, you can purchase or rent out a murder mystery game kit online or from your local board game shop. How it works is that each member of your party is assigned a character from the game -- the murderer, the victim, and the witnesses -- and, over the course of the evening, you’re all given a variety of clues that will help you solve the whodunit.

Have a slumber party

When was the last time you had a real slumber party? Throw it back to your teenage years with a sleepover-style bachelorette party.

Invite your girls over to your place for a night of movies and popcorn, DIY pedicures, and good old gossip. Looking for something a little less nostalgic? Rent out a suite at your local hotel and have your slumber party with a side of room service.

Take a yoga class (or go on a yoga retreat)

Whether you’re an experienced yogi or have never done a downward dog in your life, yoga is always a great idea when it comes to your bach.

Your bachelorette party is a great opportunity to introduce your friends to yoga or to (finally) take that yoga class you’ve been meaning to try out. We recommend booking out a yoga studio for a group class that will accommodate your whole bridal party.

It’ll be fun to sweat it out and learn new moves with your bridesmaids and, in the end, you’ll come out of it feeling relaxed and a little more toned!

Take a cooking class

Whether you and your bridesmaids are top chefs or amateurs in the kitchen, a cooking class is the kind of bachelorette event everyone can enjoy -- and benefit from.


Cooking classes are usually hosted by local cooking schools and guilds, but some bakeries, cafés, and kitchen supply stores also host their own demonstration classes. Either way, a quick Google will help you find cooking classes in your area.

Take a glassblowing class

Glassblowing is red-hot right now. The craft has exploded as a hobby in the last few years, which is all the more reason to take a glassblowing class for your bachelorette party.

Glassblowing classes are usually held in specialized studios and schools, so you’ll want to be on the lookout for those during your research.

Unless you’re a glassmaker, it’s unlikely that you or your bridesmaids have ever tried this particular trade before, so at the very least this bachelorette party experience will be a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime experience for everyone involved.

Take a pottery class

Pottery is another hands-on hobby that has grown in popularity in the last few years. And your bachelorette party is a great opportunity to try your hand at the pottery wheel.

There are many different tiers of pottery classes you can try out depending on your skill level and what you’re comfortable with. Most local art studios and specialized pottery studios hold group classes where you can create your own pieces on a wheel. If you’re not looking to get that involved, there are also ceramics cafés that provide you with pre-made pieces you and your bridesmaids can paint and have fired. Either way, everyone will walk away from your bach with a souvenir to remember it by.

Take a pole dancing class

Why visit a strip club for your bachelorette party when you can get on the pole yourself?

Pole dancing has risen in popularity as a form of exercise in recent years. If it’s something you and your bridesmaids have always wanted to try out, your bachelorette party is as good an opportunity as any to do so.

Pole dancing classes are usually held by specialized pole and aerial dance studios, which you can find with a quick Google search. We recommend booking out the studio for a group class so you and your bridesmaids can learn the art -- and get in an ab-burning workout -- in a more intimate setting.

Take a flower arranging class

Having a summer wedding? Benefit from spring’s blooms by taking a flower arranging class for your bachelorette. 

You can find flower arranging classes at your local florist or local art school. In the class, you’ll learn how to create beautiful arrangements from real, fresh-cut flowers. Who knows? Maybe you’ll learn just what you need to create your wedding bouquet yourself.
