With the right preparation and a detailed checklist, you won’t forget about a single detail. Let’s make it happen… ✔️
Bachelorette Party Supplies Checklist
Don’t know where to begin? Let’s start with the essentials (but make them a little elevated for the VIB, Very Important Bride). Here are some ways to make your BATCH party supplies checklist pop:
Decorations - Decorations are necessary to create the perfect party atmosphere, so let's make sure you have everything you need to make the bride-to-be feel special. Get creative with decor options like:
- Balloons: Balloons are a must-have decoration for any bachelorette party! Use balloons in the bride's favorite colors or shapes to add some fun and excitement to your vacation rental. Get creative and spell out the bride's name with letter balloons or use heart-shaped balloons for a romantic touch.
- Banners: Personalize the party space with custom banners that showcase the bride's name or a fun message like "Last fling before the ring!" Hang them up above the bride’s bed or use them as a backdrop for photos. Choose banners in colors that match your theme for a cohesive look.
- Centerpieces: Make the party table extra special with stunning centerpieces that add some glamour to the occasion. Use flowers, candles, or other decorative items that match your theme to create a chic and sophisticated look. Don't forget to add some bling to the centerpieces with glitter or sequins for a touch of glam!
- Confetti: Add some sparkle and fun to the party with confetti! Scatter it on tables or use it as part of your table settings. Choose confetti in a variety of colors and shapes that match your theme to create a festive atmosphere. Add some personalization with custom confetti that features the bride's name or (future) initials.
- Streamers: Create a party atmosphere that's full of energy and excitement with colorful streamers! Hang them from the ceiling or use them to create a backdrop for photos. Choose streamers in the bride's favorite colors or opt for metallic or glittery options to add some extra shine.
Tableware: Don't let your food and drinks go unnoticed! Intentionally choosing tableware that matches your theme can help take your bachelorette party to the next level. Make sure to include the following:
- Signs that describe the food: Give your guests a sneak peek of what they'll be eating with signs that describe the food. You can also get creative and use food puns to incorporate the food into the theme. For example, if you're having a beach-themed party, label the shrimp cocktail as "mermaid tails" or the fruit platter as "tropical paradise."
- Tablecloths: Add some style to your party table with a tablecloth that matches your theme. Choose a color or pattern that complements your decorations and sets the tone for the party. For example, if you're having a vintage-themed party, choose a lace tablecloth to add some charm and elegance.
- Cups: Make sure your guests have something stylish to sip their drinks from! Choose cups that match your theme, whether it's cute and colorful for a tropical-themed party or sleek and sophisticated for a black-and-white party. Don't forget to provide enough cups for everyone, and consider providing different sizes depending on the type of drinks you'll be serving.
- Straws: Add a touch of fun to your drinks with colorful or patterned straws! Choose straws that match your theme or mix and match different colors and patterns for a playful look.
Games and activities - Every BATCH needs games and activities for when you’re chillin’ in your vacay rental. These are sure to keep the vibes up and will have your whole party laughing and enjoying themselves:
- Pin the Tail on the Groom: This classic game is always a hit at bachelorette parties! Blindfold each guest and have them try to pin a paper tail on a poster of the groom. The guest who gets the closest wins a prize!
- Scavenger Hunt: Create a scavenger hunt that takes your guests all around town, or just around your Airbnb. Come up with a list of items or tasks that your guests need to find or complete, and offer a prize to the guest who finishes first.
- Truth or Dare: Get ready for some laughs and embarrassing stories with a game of truth or dare. Have your guests take turns choosing between answering a personal question or completing a silly dare.
- Bridal Bingo: This game is a fun way to get everyone involved and paying attention during the party. Create bingo cards with common bridal shower or bachelorette party gifts or activities (like "lingerie," "bride-to-be takes a shot," or "someone mentions the wedding date"). The first person to get a bingo wins a prize!
- Karaoke: Get your guests up and singing with a karaoke machine or just some YouTube videos and a speaker. Encourage everyone to participate, even if they're not the best singers. The more enthusiastic, the better!
Attire and Accessories: Turn heads with stylish bachelorette party attire and accessories! Whether you're planning a wild night out or a cozy weekend getaway, these must-haves will take your party to the next level:
- Sashes: Get your squad matching sashes that say "I Do Crew" or "Maid of Honor." Not only will they make your group easy to spot, but they're also a fun souvenir to take home.
- Veils: Make the bride-to-be feel extra special with a veil! Choose a classic white one or get creative with a themed veil (like a flower crown or unicorn horn).
- Hats: Whether it's a glittery top hat or a trendy baseball cap, hats are a fun way to add some flair to your bachelorette party look.
- Sunglasses: Keep the sun out of your eyes and stay stylish with some fun sunglasses. You can even get custom ones made with your group's names or a fun phrase.
- Tiara: Make the bride-to-be feel like a queen with a sparkling tiara. It's the perfect accessory to wear out on the town.
Safety First: Cuts, scrapes, hangovers, and wardrobe malfunctions are all a part of a wild BATCH weekend. Be prepared for anything and everything with:
- Bandaids: From blisters to cuts, you never know when a bandaid might come in handy.
- Pedialyte: Keep your guests hydrated and refreshed with this electrolyte-packed drink - it's not just for babies anymore!
- Advil, Tylenol, Aspirin: Headaches and sore muscles are common after a night of partying. Stock up on pain relievers to make sure everyone feels their best.
- Safety pins/sewing kit: Wardrobe malfunctions can happen at any time. Be prepared with safety pins and a mini sewing kit to fix any fashion emergencies.
