Choose a bachelorette party theme that will suit the bride-to-be's personality and interests, and then choose an invitation design that matches the party vibe. Minted's offers bachelorette invitations to suit every celebration style, so you are sure to find a unique design that perfectly complements the celebration. Need some party theme inspiration? Here are some of our favorite ideas.
Night on the Town: Gather up the girls for dinner at a chic restaurant followed by bar-hopping till the wee hours of the night. We have some sleek designs that play up phrases and imagery around a “girls night out” or “hitting the town”.
Pool Party: Reserve a few poolside cabanas and bring some fun floaties and matching shades for everyone. Get your party goers excited with one of our invitations that features a polka dot bikini or collection of innertubes on the front cover.
Wine Tasting: Take a tour of local wineries, sipping their offerings and enjoying the beautiful views of the vineyards. Of course, we have some sophisticated designs that incorporate wine glasses and wine bottles. You could even adjust the coloring of your invitation to match a red wine hue.
Spa Day: The bride will appreciate pampering beauty treatments and relaxation before the big day. A botanical-themed invitation that speaks to beautiful imagery could be a perfect design choice.
The Great Outdoors: Pack picnic fixings and choose a scenic hiking trail that suits everyone’s activity level. An invitation that plays up stargazing and a camping lantern would help set the excitement for the upcoming get-together.
Drag Show: Reserve seats near the stage and get ready for your group to be heckled. An invitation with bright colors or silver and gold foil could help allude to the wild night ahead.
Cooking Class: Book a private cooking class and learn how to make a three-course feast. Afterwards, your group will likely get to dine and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Feature a list of ingredients on the cover of your card and play up how the bride will need all her sous chefs to help her.
Yoga Class: Hire a local instructor to teach a private yoga class for your girl gang. This way, the bride-to-be will feel relaxed and centered before the wedding day. A minimalist design with a simple font will help set the relaxing theme to your get-together.

BACHELORETTE PARTY FAQs
Have some questions about planning the pre-wedding party for the bride-to-be? We've got answers.
Who plans the bachelorette party? The maid of honor typically plans the party, though any bridesmaid or loved one can offer to take charge of planning the celebration. The key, though, is for the party planner to check in with the bride. She should have a say in the overall party theme and style as well as the activities.
Who should get invited? Ask the bride to provide you with an official guest list. She should feel free to invite anyone she'd like to have by her side to celebrate her last days as a single lady. The only rule is that all party guests must also be invited to the wedding. The bachelorette invitees might include:
Her bridesmaids and wedding attendants
Close non-wedding-party pals (female or male)
How many people should be invited? Advise the bride to keep invitations under 20, as to keep the party planning more manageable.
When should the party be held? It is typically held anywhere between one to two months before the wedding date. The goal is to choose a date that's not so close to the wedding day that the bride will be stressed out, but not so far in advance that it will seem anticlimactic. Check with the bride and ask her to provide a few dates that work for her. Next, coordinate with her three or four closest pals to choose the party date.
However, if the majority of bachelorette guests live in far-flung places, then the simplest solution might be to hold the bachelorette a day or two before the wedding, when everyone is in town for the celebration. If that's the case, then keep the festivities on the milder side to avoid hangovers and anyone feeling overly tired or worn down on the wedding day.
Are you supposed to bring gifts? No. The bridal shower is usually a gift-centric celebration but the bachelorette party generally does not focus on presents. Simply celebrate with the bride-to-be.
Who pays for the party? Usually all of the party guests will pitch in to cover the bride's costs, as well as their own portion. However, if you're planning something more elaborate than a girls night out, such as a destination bachelorette, then the guests will typically chip in to cover an evening out rather than footing the bill for the entire weekend.
If you're in charge of planning the bachelorette, it's important to figure out ahead of time what guests can afford, whether it's a fancy meal out or a long weekend in Palm Springs. Communicate with the bride and make decisions that work with the group's budget and reflect the style of party she'd like to have. Once the party details are solidified, then you'll want to let guests know what to expect so they can decide if they can attend. Figure out a basic itinerary and include those details on the back of the bachelorette party invitation. Let people know the schedule, party locations, estimated costs, and how they're expected to pay. Lastly, it's usually simplest to designate one person to be in charge of the finances for the whole party. that person should keep track of expenses throughout the bachelorette and settle up quickly post-party.
When should you send bachelorette party invitations? Aim to mail the invites two months before the party. This should give people enough time to clear their schedules or make travel arrangements. Stay on track with the party planning by following our Bachelorette Party Planning Checklist.
What are some fun games to play? No matter what type of party theme you're going for, it's a good idea to weave in a few bachelorette party games to keep the party going. Depending on the bride's personality, you could go the raunchy, bawdy route or keep it more sweet and tame. This game is a classic: Ask the groom a list of questions beforehand like who said “I love you” first? What do you love most about the bride? Who is the better chef in the kitchen? At the party, have the bride try to guess his answers. This game is a great one to play during a casual morning brunch or while the group is hanging out poolside.
If you're heading out for a night on the town, give each guest a few cards printed with dares for the bride. Dares could include everything from asking a stranger to serenade her to getting a cute guy’s phone number on a napkin. Let party guests deploy the cards at any time throughout the night.
Are you supposed to give your guests party favors? Party favors are never mandatory but if you have the budget for it, a small parting gift is a thoughtful memento. It could be something as simple as a reusable water bottle (for the inevitable hangover), some cheap sunglasses for a pool party, or a bottle of nail polish if the party is spa-themed. Personalize the party favor by adding a custom favor tag to mark the occasion.
