Consider turning the party into a learning experience and plan a cooking class, pole dancing class, or even a pottery class. As far as ideas goes, this one works best when you think about what the bride-to-be is interested in. Is there something she’s always wanted to learn how to do?

Poker Night

Who says you have to go all the way to Vegas to enjoy some card games and gambling? After you create a guest list, you can make a list of snacks and beverages everyone wants. As an added bonus, you can gamble with items other than money. This way you still get to enjoy the thrill of gambling without actually losing any money. While Halloween-style poker is usually geared towards children, there’s no reason you couldn’t purchase a few bags of candy for everyone to use to gamble with during poker night.

Spa Day

As far as bachelorette party ideas go, a spa day is almost never a bad idea. Getting married is stressful for the bride – and usually some of the bridesmaids too! A spa day may be just what the bride needs to unwind and relax. Spa days, however, can get a little expensive. So, keep that in mind if you decide to go with this option.

How Much Do Bachelorette Parties Usually Cost?

Per Ever After Guide, how much a bachelorette party is going to cost depends largely on which of the many party ideas you decide to go with. Going with a simple and casual bachelorette party idea can end up costing between $20 and $30. Choosing one of the more elaborate party ideas, however, can cost as much as $150 per person.

Per Brides, what time of the year a wedding is planned also tends to be a factor when it comes to expenses. Spring and fall are considered to be peak wedding seasons – so booking a traditional venue for the bachelorette party will be more expensive during these months. During the winter months, on the other hand, booking a venue will usually be a little cheaper. The only exception to this is December, because a lot of brides like to have weddings during the holidays.
