The Perfect Playlist

No celebration is complete without the right music. Hit play on our curated Bachelorette Party playlist to kick things off and get the party started. It’s a perfect blend of classic pop anthems and today’s hits!

The Newlywed Game

This game is always the star of the weekend. (Plus it is super easy to customize for your crew) Here’s how to play:

1. Ask the bride’s partner a series of questions ahead of time (snag these vetted 15 questions to get you started). You could do this via email or video record / voice memo their answers.

2. Bring a copy of the questions & the partner’s answers with you to the bachelorette.

3. Ask the bride the same questions & reveal the partner’s responses to see if they match up! (Tip: reveal responses after each question so the answers are fresh.)

We’ve played where every correct answer earns the bride a chance to give a drink to someone else, and for every wrong answer she has to take a drink… but you do you & be safe!

Frozen Cocktail Pops

These are SO fun and delicious. You can often find these at Costco, but there are plenty of options online as well. (or you could make your own!) If you’re looking to celebrate with a non alcoholic option, our team highly recommends Vermont company,  Töst, for a delicious Non-Alcoholic bubbly offering.

Metallic Temporary Tattoos

Remember when you were younger and would plaster temporary tattoos all over your arms? Bring back the nostalgia with metallic temporary tattoos! These always end up being a popular talking point. (Highly recommend busting these out after a few drinks…) We’ve seen tons of cute options on Etsy and Amazon. Bonus points if they match the Bachelorette Party theme!
