When it comes to decorating for a bachelorette party, it's all about girly, frilly and sometimes raunchy decor. A bachelorette party celebrates a bride's last night of "freedom" with her closest girlfriends. The night typically consists of going to nightclubs in over-the-top frilly costumes and props, and hanging out in a hotel room or suite—sometimes even with a surprise stripper for the bride, depending on how racy the party is. Talk to the bride about the style of party she wants and decorate the hotel room based on what she considers a good time for her special evening.
Things You'll Need
- Feather boas
- Glitter confetti
- Hanging crystals
- Mardi Gras beads
Select an overall theme. A theme helps focus the decor and gives people an idea of what is in store for the evening. For instance, for a tame bachelorette party theme, such as a manicure and massage night, you may want to just decorate with streamers and have everyone dress in pajamas. Other playful themes for bachelorette parties could include Mardi Gras or burlesque night. Include feather boas and glittery masks on table tops. Display a sexy corset on the hotel bed and hang Mardi Gras beads from all the lamps in the room.
Cover the room in pink and glitter. Many bachelorette parties have a pink color scheme as it is a very girly color. If you don't have a particular theme, fill the room with pink decor including hot pink balloons and candy. Anything that glitters and sparkles also add an extra-girly element to the party. Sprinkle glitter confetti on table surfaces and place faux crystals all over the room. Of course, if the bride absolutely detests pink, use other colors that still work for girl decor, such as purple and red.
Add racy elements to the room if the bride is comfortable with it. Many bachelorette parties include raunchier elements if the bride and her friends are okay with that. This includes suggestive decor, balloons and toys. Talk to the bride first to ensure she is all for this type of party, and if so, don't hesitate to include these elements so that she will have the night she always wanted -- and won't soon forget.
Tips & Warnings
- Let all the guests know the theme or type of bachelorette party it is when you send out the invite so that they know what to wear and what to expect.
