How to Plan a Bachelorette Party at Home


Bachelorette parties symbolize many things for both the future bride and her friends. For some women it is the last celebration spent together before the bride officially becomes a couple instead of a single. For others it is just a great reason to throw a party and have fun. Others still believe the bachelorette is a way to say congratulations to the bride for her upcoming nuptials. Regardless of the motives, bachelorette parties can be celebrated in many ways. An increasingly popular option is to throw a bachelorette party in someone's home.

  • Choose the home. Obviously, the first step in holding a home-based bachelorette party is to pick whose home to throw it in. Generally, the bachelorette party host is someone other than the bride, so perhaps it will be held in the host's home. However, certain factors should be taken into account when choosing the home location. Is it large enough to accommodate the guests? Is it appropriate for the party theme?

  • Be bride-based. Before choosing and accumulating bachelorette party games or décor, make a list of what the bride likes. The list might include her favorite foods, games and even hobbies. These items should be taken into account when planning the party; after all, it is all about the bride.

  • Consider the guest list. For many bachelorette party hosts, it is desirable to jump right into planning the fun stuff like party theme and decorations. However, the guest list should be considered first. If any guests are under 21 years old, alcohol may not be appropriate. Similarly, if guests are older and more conservative, they may be uncomfortable with certain sexually explicit party favors or other activities.

  • Assemble a party plan. The ideas are nearly endless when it comes to planning a bachelorette party. The party could have a theme such as a Hawaiian Luau or Queen for a Day. Themes can help streamline the party planning so that food, directions and games all fit into this specific idea. For instance, if the theme is just A Day of Pampering, the host might have a simple menu of desserts and champagne, the activities might consist of pedicures and the guest attire could be slippers and pajamas. Nearly any theme can be held in a home bachelorette party with the right props and games.

  • Ponder the professionals. One fun in-home bachelorette idea, which also takes some pressure of the party host, is having a party service come into the home. Professional services such as Passion Parties or Secret Pleasures bring various romance or intimacy products to the home for guests to sample and possibly purchase. In many cases, these professionals have specific activities and products for the bachelorette party experience.

  • Stick with your budget. Remember to plan a budget before purchasing any bachelorette party material. The budget should include: invitations, decorations, party favors, food and beverages.
