Save vs. Splurge: Bachelorette Party Ideas



Hey ya'll!  Are you or your BFF planning a last fling before the ring?  If so, check out some of these bachelorette party ideas for every bride and budget!

For the Foodie Bride
Save: Host your very own Bubbles & Butter party!  This party includes sweet treat decorating and tasting, coupled with cocktails for each dessert pairing!  Email bubblesandbutterplease@gmail.com to find out more about how to host your very own sweet soiree!
Splurge: Map out some of the bride's favorite local eateries {restaurants, bars, food trucks, etc.}, pile the girls in the car and enjoy indulging at each location!  Apps & cocktails at one, dinner at the next, then dessert at a third?  Sounds like the best kind of evening!

 For the Active Bride
Save: Get the endorphins going with a private group class at your local Purre Barre or other dance studio.
Splurge: Go Ape! in Williamsburg at a ropes course, perfect for the adventurous group of gals!

For the Creative Bride
Save: Host your very own paint night at home!  Find a picture, grab some paints & canvases, and brush up on your paint skills!  Don't forget the music and snacks {and cocktails}!
Splurge: Choose a local Paint Night event in your area, arrange a limo to pick up the bridal party, and paint the town {and canvases}!

For the Stressed Out Bride
Save: Create a spa oasis in your home for the bride and the rest of the maids.  Grab the clay masks, nail polish, and relaxing music and don your favorite cozy robe for a night of pampering.
Splurge: Book mani/pedis, facials, and massages for the bridal party.  Bonus points if you include bubbly!

 For the Spontaneous Bride
Save: Go on a weekend adventure exploring a city nearby - think DC, Charlottesville, Richmond, or the Outer Banks!
Splurge: Have the bride pick a city - Myrtle Beach, New York, maybe even Cancun - and spend a few days exploring with the ladies!
