Let’s face it. Some of us were born a little wilder than others. So, when planning a bachelorette bash for these wildflowers, know that anything goes. If your bride-to-be has a taste for adventure or extravagance, let’s give her a last hurrah to remember before those wedding bells ring. 

If you think a tea party or a sleepover may be too docile for her, here are some wild bachelorette party ideas for the bride-to-be before she kisses the miss goodbye.

Adventure Awaits: Destination Bachelorette Parties

Why stay home when you can jet off to an exotic locale with your closest friends? Destination bachelorette parties offer endless opportunities for adventure.

From tropical getaways (sand, cocktails, luaus, and jet skis) and outdoor adventures (think camping or glamping with mountain biking and moonlit hikes) to the glitz and glam of the city (helicopter rides over Miami, rooftop parties in NYC, or exclusive club tours in Vegas), it’s easy to see the allure of the best bachelorette party destinations.

Sailing Into Marriage: Yacht or Boat Party

Whether you’re a party boat crew or a sophisticated yacht enjoyer, one thing is for sure: gathering all your besties in one boat is a great way to welcome a new phase of life. When it comes to wild bachelorette parties, yachts are quite high on the list.

For those who crave something a little extra, try an overnight on a luxury yacht. Or, when looking for a little adventure, cue up a scuba diving or snorkeling trip to check out the wonders that hide beneath the surface. And how about a day of beach games for those more comfortable looking at the water but keeping their toes on solid ground? It could be anything from volleyball to relay races.

Nightclub Extravaganza

If you’re a squad of dancing beauties, a nightclub extravaganza is just what you need. Whether you’re looking for an exclusive club experience with VIP status (like NYC Mr. Purple Rooftop Bar) or club hopping in style on a party bus (like Vegas’ VIP Nightclub Tour), the nightlife is where it’s at. And, of course, a wild bachelorette party in Miami is always fun. If you need a little more excitement, throw a twist on the evening with a dress theme like 80’s disco or masquerade ball.

Exotic Dance Classes

From belly and pole dancing to burlesque, there are plenty of risque options to keep you entertained. So channel that inner starlet and get ready to put your diva on full display as you bond with your girls like never before. 

Adventure Sports Day

For the genuinely wild ones who crave that adrenaline rush, how about taking a leap before the big day, as in out of a perfectly functional moving plane? Or taking a white water rafting trip before navigating the rapids of matrimony. If those are too much, how about ziplining, bungee jumping, or go-karting to get the heart pumping? 

Wild West Bachelorette: Ranch Stay

When your fantasy involves a dusty cowboy, taking the party to the Wild West is the way to go. Experience horseback rides and campfires, test your skills and bravery on rodeo night, or go line dancing. Either way, this is an easy way to channel that inner cowgirl.

Haunted Adventure: Ghost Tours or Haunted House Visit

Wild bachelorette parties are not just bars and yachts; they come in many different packages. So when your girl loves to be spooked, try a haunted city tour (like this New Orleans Night Walk), spend the night in a haunted mansion or hotel, or book a séance. And maybe plan on leaving the lights on. 

Luxury and Extravagance: Rent a Mansion or Castle

Give your glam girl a night to live like a celebrity. Rent out a mansion or castle, plan a grand dinner party, or dive into the grandeur of a pool party like you’ve only seen on TV. If that doesn’t excite you, experience a luxury picnic with decor, gourmet charcuterie, and fresh flower keepsake centerpieces.

Themed Nights Out

When your bride is wild and will do and say things like nobody’s watching, give her what she loves. From a wacky costume night and karaoke madness to a comedy club hop, you are guaranteed a crazy night of laughter and fun. Be sure to check out themed night bottle service at the iconic Cheapshot.

Plan a Wild Bachelorette Party to Remember

A bachelorette party is supposed to be a wild ride. You throw caution out of the window and have the time of your life with your besties. However, a little foresight and planning are necessary for an awesome party. 

If you want to make your bachelorette party wild (but not too wild), here are some things you should take care of:

Plan in Advance

Weddings can sneak up on you, so it’s wise to start planning and prepping as soon as you can. There are so many things to do—bridal showers (no, they are not the same as bachelorette parties), dress trials, and appointments, among a hundred others. Knowing how to bring together bachelorette parties in advance helps you make timely bookings and reservations. 

Consult the Bride

However well you think you may know the bride, you should still consult her since it’s her party. Take her input for the date, guest list, probable venues, and activities so she is comfortable with everything. She may not need to know the nitty-gritty if it's a surprise, but she should be in the loop. 

Include Everyone

No one likes last-minute invites. People are busy with their lives, and prior notice helps them plan their schedules. Once the guest list is ready, reach out to everyone. Try to set a date and time that everyone is comfortable with. Ask for their input, include them in your preparations, and even delegate work to the ones happy to volunteer.

Lay Down Some Ground Rules

Yes, it may sound boring, and you may think, “Why impose rules when you are out here to get wild,” but it’s important. You do not want a spoilsport ruining everyone else’s pleasure, especially not the bride’s. So, you should be clear with everyone to be on their best behavior and not create unnecessary ruckus in the guise of fun. 

Set a Budget

It’s easy to get lost in the excitement of party planning. You want to do everything and get everything, and as a result, you overspend without realizing it. That’s not financially responsible or feasible for everyone. Talk to the bridal party, set a budget that fits everyone’s pockets, and stick to it. If someone offers to cover more than their share, that's a great idea; otherwise, plan with the limit in mind. And who knows what creative ideas you’ll come up with?

Plan Fun Activities

If you are relying on snacks and alcohol to make your bachelorette party wild, you may be in for a surprise, and not the good kind. Food and drinks definitely add to the party’s character, but you need more than that to make it a hit. Plan some of the best bachelorette party activities for a night out that will allow people to mingle and talk. Depending on your venue and theme, you can do anything you know the bride and the bridal party will enjoy. 

➡️ Here are our top four recommended wild experiences:

Party Planning Made Easy

Once upon a time, the Maid of Honor used to run around doing everything. Today, the whole bridal party takes part in making the bachelorette party a success. Even though it’s nice to have people helping, it can be overwhelming at times.

As you gather some of the best bachelorette party ideas for your wild bride-to-be, remember that the most important thing is the bride's happiness and comfort. So think outside the box, embrace adventure, and create those bonds before the bride says, "I do." Unleash the fun with your wild bachelorette party ideas and make the night memorable. 


Who pays for the bachelorette party?

Traditionally, the responsibility of organizing the bachelorette falls on the Maid of Honor. That includes paying for it too. But it’s not the rule. Depending on the activity you’re planning and the people involved, you can decide who foots the bill.

Sometimes, the bridesmaids pitch in and split the bill. Even the bride may contribute as a token of appreciation. The bridal party can decide what works for them and plan accordingly. It honestly comes down to the group’s dynamics and what everyone is comfortable doing. 

How do you throw a small bachelorette party?

While a bachelorette or a bachelor party is a huge deal, it does not have to be a big affair. A small, close-knit gathering can be as enjoyable for the bride as a giant blowout party. Some brides like lowkey celebrations. It’s her happiness that matters, after all. You can gather her close ones and hit the local bar for a fun evening or have a sleepover with movie marathons. Make sure to ask the bride for the guestlist so she is surrounded by the people she truly wants there. 

What do most girls do at bachelorette parties? 

Similar to a bachelor's party, most girls at a bachelorette aim to have fun! There are so many things girls do for bachelorette parties—go out to dance the night away, rent a yacht for some seaside excitement, take a dance class, or have a sleepover watching old rom-com movies till dawn (or thrillers, the bride’s taste!). As long as the bride has fun bonding with her girls, anything is a bachelorette.

How to make the bachelorette fun?

Fun is subjective to the one you’re throwing the party for. If the bride is happy, your party is a success! You can make the party more enjoyable for the bride by personalizing the party to her taste. Ensure all her bridesmaids and friends are present at the occasion, try to include her favorite things (like activities she loves), and you can also ask everyone to record something nice (or funny) about her and play that during the party.
