4 Fun Bachelorette Party Alternatives

Freakum dress. Killer heels. Plenty of Beyonce and booze! Sounds like the recipe for the ultimate Girls’ Night Out, right?

But what if your bride-to-be isn’t the traditional bachelorette party type? Then you cater an evening to her personality, of course!

Below you’ll find four alternatives to dancing the night away that your friend is sure to love!

If she’s into manis and pedis… pamper her with a spa day!

Who couldn’t use a few hours of R&R? Most likely, the bride is stressing out about more than a few things. A relaxing day at the spa with her best girls–complete with a massage and facial–would be most rewarding.

If she’s into sports… take her out to the ball game!

Whether it’s football or baseball (both are in season right now), your sports-loving friend will have a great time! Surprise the guest of honor with a suite stocked full of her favorite game-day foods and root, root, root for the home team!

If she’s the artsy type… hit up a paint-and-sip event!

You don’t need to be Picasso to enjoy an evening of painting. Check out Paint Nite or a local art studio for classes. No experience is necessary (the teacher will guide you through the steps) and a lot of venues are BYOB. (Bonus: If the bride has a wild side, you can paint a nude model at The Artful Bachelorette!)

If she’s an aspiring foodie… indulge in a food tour!

Visit Groupon or Living Social to learn about food tours in your city. Whether the bride is into cupcakes or chocolate, there’s a tour for every taste bud! Or go rouge and plan your own route.
