Bachelorette parties are a great way to bring all your closest friends together to have the time of your lives and celebrate your wedding day. However you and your bridal party decide to prepare for the big day, know that you can rely on Shutterfly to help make celebrating the festivities leading up to the wedding day a blast.
Before bachelorettes can say “I do” at wedding ceremonies, they need to throw great bachelorette parties with their bridesmaids and girlfriends. With Shutterfly, you can get help with everything from sending the bachelorette party invites to choosing the right bachelorette party favors. If you’re trying to organize a party with style and really make the bride-to-be feel like the guest of honor, you’ll need personalized party favors and gifts made especially for her. Whether you’re having the party close to home or going all out with a destination bachelor party, here are some of our best ideas to make this party one to remember.
Before every wedding, there must be an engagement, and before bridal parties, there must be bachelorette parties. The only way to let everyone know about a big party is to send out the wedding invitations, so make sure you personalize some memorable bachelorette party invites to set the stage. Choose a casual and fun invitation that sets up a night of alcohol and excitement to make a lasting impression. Customize it with the bride-to-be’s name and all of your party details, so attendees know when to come and what to bring. Or, if you want to set a more formal mood, then choose an invite that will let everyone know to wear their best heels and dress for a fancy party.
Bachelorette parties will inevitably be followed up with more formal bridal showers, but you can surprise the future bride after the party by offering to help her plan the shower. We have plenty of personalizable bridal shower invitations that can match any personality, and she can keep one for herself to remember the effort everyone put in. Choose from one of our gorgeous green and gold floral invites that’s sure to impress.
If there’s one thing bachelorette parties tend to be known for, it’s letting the wine and champagne flow. If you still need bachelorette party favors, our customizable stemless wine glasses can be your best friends for the festivities. We have fun glasses that are simple and get the point across with your name and your soon-to-be bride or groom’s name joined with a heart. If you want to keep this party about you to ensure you de-stress from the wedding planning, then go with our monogrammed glasses. Our wine glasses hold 15 oz and are dishwasher safe, so they’re easy to clean and reuse. If you’re looking to get stronger booze involved, then our customizable shot glasses are a perfect pick.
If you’re among the most important attendees at bachelorette parties and you want to make a big impression on the bride-to-be, some customized jewelry will certainly do the job. Our beautiful engraved bar necklace is a great choice for the future bride that will bear her name engraved in a silver bar or an 18k gold or rose gold plated bar. The 20″ chain with lobster clamp should make an easy fit for any bachelorette, and you can even customize the back with a personal message. Naturally, this would also make an excellent gift for the maid of honor, should you choose to give such a gift at your bachelorette party.
If you want to involve some more practical gifts in bachelorette parties, then some personalized tote bags for your favorite people are a great idea. Our tote bags can be personalized for every attendee, including a special one for the bachelorette herself, and including everyone’s name on the bag to eliminate potential confusion. These bags are a great way to carry personal items to enjoy the nightlife; they’re perfect for carrying supplies to a pool party, or you could even use them to store necessities on your way to a destination bachelorette party. With this trendy and durable bag, you’ll look fashionable and stay prepared.
Naturally, the main point of bachelorette parties is to de-stress and have fun, although having too much fun may impact one’s memory of the event. Whatever you have planned for the bride-to-be and your close friends, make sure they have great memories of the party with these personalized keepsakes.
Depending on how much fun you have at bachelorette parties, there’s a good chance that you’ll need to refresh yourself the day after. Go ahead and drink plenty of water and take a hot bath or shower before lighting one of our Shutterfly candles with scents to take you to a relaxing place. Our candles are perfect party keepsakes that can be personalized with a photo of the bride-to-be and her future bride or groom, or any other photo that you think will be appropriate. Whenever she smells this candle, she’ll be transported back to her unforgettable bachelorette party.
Photo books also make some of the best follow-up gifts after bachelorette parties, and they’re the best choices to keep good times between good friends alive. Surprise her with the idea after the party, and if she wants, she can join you in creating the book, so it’s ready before the main event. With our photo book editing tools, you can keep full control over every element of your unique book, or you can let us help you make it using our suggested layouts and embellishments. We have several layouts for celebrating love that may capture the future bride’s interests.
