I’m no stranger to dreaming up epic bachelorette party ideas and games. It’s almost become something of a hobby, seeing as I’m on track to be one of the last of my friends to get married. Aside from serving as a bridesmaid and Maid of Honor in countless bridal parties, I’ve attended all kinds of bachelorette events and I love throwing creative themed parties in general. It’s kind of my jam!
So if you’re looking for a fun twist to take your current bachelorette party planning to the next level, look no further because I’ve got you covered with a list of party favors and props that will make your event super memorable!
Given the popularity of my original post highlighting Unique Bridesmaid Gifts under $60, I have decided to curate another batch of creative ideas for all the brides looking to shake things up a bit. While these gift guides were specifically inspired by the monotonous and predictable bridesmaid gifts that plague Pinterest (be gone, canvas tote bags and monogrammed glassware!), there is absolutely nothing preventing you from re-purposing these creative bridesmaid gift ideas to stock up on everyday gifts for your friends, family and colleagues.
No bride deserves a deadbeat bridesmaid in her wedding party. That said, unless the wedding is a Kim and Kanye style affair with all expenses paid, the reality is that being a bridesmaid is often about 30% glamour and 70% hard labor. With the growing interest in DIY and destination weddings, it’s more important than ever for a would-be bride to select her attendants carefully and be realistic with herself and with her potential maids about the demand on everyone’s time and pocketbook. There is a lot more to it than tulle and flowers, and not everyone will be enthusiastic about hot gluing sequins to masons jars for 12+ hours to save you a few bucks.
Yes, it’s true. You can get paid to get married, or have a baby, or take a European vacation… if you play your cards right in the credit card rewards department. Before you make a face, let me assure you that I personally despise credit card spam and most credit card incentives.
