The Bachelorette party. Before you click away and shake your head in mock disgust, convincing yourself you’d never succumb to talking a strange man out of his underwear or indulging in a dirty treasure hunt, give the social stand-by a chance and review out list of alternatives; though you might find a few naughty looking finger foods, and Bride To Be sashes scattered throughout, not every party needs a cache of treasures from Naughty but Nice – if you’re not that kind of girl, we get it! Don’t let fun and frivolity take a back seat; single life isn’t to be mourned or forgotten, but celebrated. Get dressed, get organised and let your girlfriends take you on a ride down memory lane. You can always forget it after with a round of tequila shots.
Fun & Light-Hearted
If you’re not a party girl, skip this section. The traditional Hen’s Night or Bachelorette parties is marked by a surplus of gaudy tiaras, ridiculously high shoes, short dresses, copious cocktails and loud, giggling women. Before descending on the town, ready to score major points in the Bride-to-Be scavenger hunt, play a few high school games (Truth, Dare or Body Shots) and take a walk down ex-boyfriend esplanade, talking about the past, sharing the last drops of your youth and devouring a naughty shaped cake will definitely get you in the mood for a big night out.
The Champagne Lifestyle
Not everybody wants the bright lights of the Friday night club round to punctuate their salute to singledom. Say goodbye to plastic crowns and hello to being treated like the Queen you are, jewels optional. You’re probably feeling the pressure of the perfect wedding by now; your head may be aching, your fingers itching and your nerves strung out, along a fault line of demands. Take time out for an opulent spa session, re-gaining that post-engagement glow with a mud-wrap, a facial, a massage or just chilling with the girls in a mineral plunge pool. Afterward, enjoy a champagne dinner overlooking a pretty place, unwound by the chatter of your best friends.
