Planning a summer bachelorette party? Let guest contributor Jessica Lambert help you with some fabulous ideas for a memorable party!
Freshly cut grass, clear blue skies, ice creams, summer dresses and sandals; when summer arrives, there’s a fresh, happy buzz in the air, so count yourself lucky if you’re celebrating your bachelorette party during these months! The experiences that sunshine and blue sky opens up are some of the most unique and exciting of the bunch so to give you some inspiration, we here at Redseven have outlined 7 top bachelorette party ideas to enjoy this summer.
If you love a spot of camping then you’re in for a treat with glamping! Glamping has all the perks of camping, with the added extras of home comforts and luxuries. To put it simply, it’s Camping + Glamour! The Great Outdoors, camp fires, long walks, delicious food al fresco style, great friends and absolutely no nylon tents in site; sound too good to be true? It really is. Whether it’s a tipi, a yurt, bell tent or even an eco-friendly wooden structure, you’ll have a soft surface to sleep on too - there’s no roughing it when it comes to glamping!
Top Tip: Take some games with you; being outdoors is great fun but there’s only so much gossiping round a fire you'll be able to take for one weekend! We think...
Get off those backsides and out onto the sea! It’s not often we get to take advantage of the ocean and surfing is a great fun way to do so, plus, unless you're a seasoned pro, there's no better time to try it than in the summer, as you can combine it will some beach time too. If you’re the active type then you’ll love this hen party idea!
Top Tip: Remember to take some sun cream, the last thing you want is some dodgy tan lines or burns before your big day!
Music, sunshine, camping, parties, dancing and starry nights; festivals are a super idea to combine your hen party with. There’s no need to stress about planning in a weekend schedule because the festival, in its very nature, does that for you with a whole line up of events from music and comedy, to dance and late night parties! All you have to do is buy your ticket and turn up! Simple.
Top Tip: Make sure you take ear plugs for the unfortunate nights (or mornings!) when all you can hear are the people in the tent right next to yours, discussing the meaning of life! You will be thankful for those little foamy nuggets.
4. Beach Club
If you’re a true sun worshipper a day or night at a beach club is for you! This might mean you have to book a hen weekend abroad somewhere where you can ensure guaranteed sunshine but this is a special occasion after all! You've got your favourite ladies, beautiful blue sparkly sea, a white sandy beach in the distance and a swimming pool - all that’s left to do is get your best bikinis on and order a delicious frozen cocktail!
Top Tip: Check out if the beach club offers pampering treatments and book in for a lovely pedicure by the pool for those perfect beach babe feet!
5. Garden Party& Picnic
Organising a big garden party or a posh picnic is a great bachelorette party idea if you're a little strapped for cash; all you need a is a big garden or big green open space, delicious food, an abundance of champagne and a music player!
Top Tip: Organise some bachelorette party games to play during the day – they're a great way of bringing people together and making the day special. The Mr & Mrs Game is a great one!
If you want to go all out for your summer hen party then jump aboard a boat to the best hen party experience you've ever had! You’ll absolutely love the luxury of stepping foot on a luxury catamaran or yacht with a glass of champagne in hand, the sun shining down, the ocean beneath and surrounded by your favourite girls.
Top Tip: Look into hiring a private catamaran or yacht exclusively for your group so you can truly feel like VIPs and enjoy some quality time with each other without bringing strangers into the mix.
7. Wine Tasting Tour
Who doesn't love a glass of wine? Especially when there’s so many to choose from (and we’re talking more than just red, white or rose!). Pick a wine tasting tour that will show you around their vineyard so you can see exactly where the grapes have grown from to be produced into the delicious beverage that is a fine wine.
Top Tip: This is best organised when you don’t have much planned for the rest of the day or evening as let’s face it, you’re likely to drink the wine you taste, not spit it out and you don’t want to end up feeling that afternoon slump.
