So, it’s the bachelorette party—the final shenanigans before the wedding. You’ve sent out the invites, you’ve bought all the drinks and you’ve planned all the entertainment. Cool, but now it’s the best part: Time to decorate. Everything is now in your hands, and you’re going to have a fabulous day with your fabulous friends celebrating your most-fabulous bride. Bachelorette parties are so much more than dancers and balloons — it can be a chance to flatter your friend by showing how well you know them and how much you love them. Here, we’ve gathered the best bachelorette party decorations so you can celebrate without fretting.
A bachelorette party can be whatever you want it to be, but decide first whether it’s going to be a one night affair, or a truly rambunctious weekend away with your pals. Keeping in mind the travel expectations and budgets of not only yourself but the attendees will help you decide where the soiree will take place. Whether it’s a three-day weekend in the Big Apple, a daylong excursion through Airbnb Experiences, or a one night affair in a hotel room in your hometown, it’s good to all be on the same page with expectations.
But please: check before you call a dancer into your room and gauge your friend’s interest (and the interest of the other attendees.) You don’t want to ruin a fun vibe with an unwelcome guest.
Great, you’ve got a plan for what you’re going to do? Now it’s time to come up with the encapsulating bachelorette party theme for the weekend. This party theme will be the needle that threads the entire weekend together, starting from the invitations and ending with the parting gifts. Here are a few ideas:
The key to good bachelorette party decoration ideas is keeping the lewdness to after dark—no one really wants to see a table full of people wearing genitalia on necklaces and hats while they’re trying to eat breakfast, as amusing as that can be.
We’ve gotten our ideas for the party, and we’ve settled on a theme, now it’s the fun part: Decorating. Now it’s time to marry (pun intended) all of your themes together to have one big, grand ball. Here are some great bachelorette party decoration ideas for you to ponder:
Whether it’s giant confetti-filled balloons in the color scheme of the decor, or it’s customized balloons emblazoned with the bride’s bachelorette party information, you’ve got plenty of decoration options with balloons. From an arch of balloon clouds to mark an entry way or just a chair marker, balloons always make for great decorations.
Insta-ready decorations are always a welcome choice, and a flower wall, real or fake, is always a great choice. Even better? Props for a photo booth for everyone to pose with, hanging twinkle lights for a backdrop, or a custom banner and streamers matching the color scheme.
Everyone—no, really, everyone—loves a piece of clothing dedicated to an event. It serves as both a great way to bond as well as a commemorative gift to remind everyone of the day. Make t-shirts on theme with the weekend, or stemless glassware etched with the weekend’s dates so that no one loses their glass. So much better than a paper sash that says “Bride to Be”, you’ll both tell the world that you’re celebrating something special without leaning too much into other bachelorette clichés.
If you’re planning on having a meal at your event where you’re in charge of tablescapes, a great opportunity to decorate can come in the form of place cards matching the theme and beautiful calligraphy, or even tablecloths in the same shades as your color scheme.
