These 11 Zingers Will Make Your Bachelorette Party Be In the Spotlight

11 VALUABLE FUN PARTY THEME IDEAS FOR A ZINGER BACHELORETTE PARTY 



The key to any planning is organization. To get the ball rolling, you'll need to speak with the guest of honor about your intentions. Discuss the guest list and any activities the bride should know about. 

If you're planning a surprise party, remember that the bride's calendar is typically cluttered in the final days before the wedding. You should clear the date with her and still keep the party details a secret. Keep in mind that she's likely to be embarrassed by some of the activities- that's part of the fun. But try to avoid anything that might upset her.

Theme planning will give your party a distinct personality. Think about fun ways to coordinate the festivities using the bride's occupation, hobbies, honeymoon destination, and so on as starting points. Your theme can be woven into every party detail or lightly sprinkled throughout various activities. 

We found a few suggestions for theme parties complete with invitations, activities, favors, and general tips to get you started.

  4. I think I'd be the no 1 type, sounds a lot of fun and everyone embarrass themselves equally. Always think hen parties abroad get too expensive and not everyone can afford it and I'd certainly stay clear of the tombstone invites. Thanks for joining in with #pocolo and hope to see you back later this week
