Many women consider their wedding day to be the most special day of their life. You must have heard others refer to it as simply, “The big day.” Truly, it is beautiful to see a couple in love pledge to remain so for the rest of their lives. There are times when it feels like nothing more than a formality, but a lot of people plan out every single detail of the day. However, there is another big event that precedes the actual ceremony. Before a woman can put on her pretty white gown and walk down the aisle, her friends first have to say goodbye to her status as a bachelorette… These photos will give you an idea about what bachelorette parties are truly like!
The Attendees Wear A Uniform
Is it even a real bachelorette party if the ladies are not wearing matching outfits? From the look of things, this trend is going to stick around for a while. The friends are supposed to wear a uniform, while the bride stands out from the crowd. This is a way to show that she is the one who is being celebrated! There is no need to worry because everyone is going to have their turn in this position in the future. At any rate, jealousy has no place during this event. This is simply the perfect time to forget about all your worries and simply let loose with some of the most important people in your life.
Fun In The Sun
In the United States, we call this event the bachelorette party. However, it is known as a hen party in the United Kingdom and a stagette party in Canada! They might have different names, but the concept is the same. The truth is that the “bachelorette party” name was only coined in the ‘90s and has since grown in popularity. Many other countries have since started using this term to refer to the event as well. At any rate, the photo below looks like the ladies were having a blast. After all, they have had, their girlfriends, and the beach! What else could they possibly want?
They Had Everything They Needed
These ladies were there to cheer on their best pal, but they have not forgotten that it was a party either. We are not surprised if they put on their best clothes and popped as many champagne bottles as they could pay for. This is the best time to let loose and ignore the consequences of your actions. Something tells us that these ladies had it all under control. After all, it is admirable to see that they are wearing coordinated outfits and huge hats with some personalization on them. Of course, we are also admiring the views that they get to enjoy from the boat. It seems like they were in Miami, but we could be wrong.
A Lot Of Effort
It looks like women are only getting wittier and more creative over the years. We have to admit that these outfits are incredible! How awesome are those creative slogans? “Let’s Get Nauti,” “BAE Watch,” “Let’s Get Ship Faced,” and all the others tell us just how much thought they put into the entire thing. Good job, girls. We are sure that you have realized what theme they went for as well! It was a great idea because we doubt that it is possible for anyone to not have fun on a boat.
A Statistical Approach To Bachelorette Parties
Do you want to hear the statistics on bachelorette parties? These days, around 94 percent of brides-to-be hold a bachelorette party. On average, the event will have 12 attendees overall. However, there are also times when the guest list can go up to almost 200 people. This sounds crazy to us, but it has apparently happened in the past. If you are planning to have one in the future, we are sure that these numbers come in handy. The ladies in this photo were clearly having the time of their lives when this photo was taken. We love that the photographer caught this photo at exactly the right moment as well
A Walk Down Memory Lane
Over the years, the bachelorette party has evolved in more ways than one. During the ‘60s all the way to the ‘80s, it was typically a single party and not a weekend-long event. There was a time when ladies attended a bachelorette luncheon as well. This involved meeting up for drinks on the Friday night that preceded the day of the wedding! During the ‘90s, things started to morph into the bachelorette party as we now know it. The bride-to-be and her bridesmaids would hit the clubs and participate in rowdier events. This means that the events are now longer and more fun than they used to be!
The Truth About Professional Dancers
Around 20 percent of these parties involve a male dancer! For the sake of reference, roughly 40 percent of bachelor parties hire a female dancer. Over the years, it has become some kind of “tradition” or expectation to have a professional performer on a bachelorette party. However, the truth is that this does not happen most of the time. Usually, it is nothing more than a group of women who are taking a girl’s weekend to celebrate the last days of singledom of the bride-to-be. This is simply an opportunity to take it easy and have fun with their gal pals after all the stress of planning a wedding!
Better Than Far-Flung Destinations
It is undeniable that bachelorette parties are only getting wilder and wilder! While it is not the healthiest outlook to have, the ladies seem to be intent on outdoing the brides that came before them. The good news is that this only makes things even more fun. Those with money to spare refuse to cut corners and head out to exciting destinations such as Las Vegas, Miami, Mexico, and even Ibiza. This photo shows Julianna Hough spending some time on a private yacht, which sounds even better than the locations we just mentioned! We have to admit that we would do the same thing if we had as much money as she does.
The Calm Before The Storm
Do you know what a “Duke of Honor” is? Well, it looks like this trend is gaining some traction. It is the best male friend of the bride, and he sometimes gets invited to join the girls on the trip. Of course, this means that the setting should be appropriate as well. It is interesting to learn that this is becoming more and more common! This interesting tidbit is not reflected in the photo below, but isn’t it fascinating to hear that this is the case? The ladies in the photo had been relaxing when it was taken, but the truth was that the photographer simply captured the calm before the storm.
No Need To Worry About Money
The bride does not usually for a single thing during the trip. This is one of the most important things to know about the event in question. Usually, her family and friends shoulder the costs of everything from her drinks to her room! This is not all that bad because the fees are usually split among her loved ones. People want to keep her happy since these are her last days as an unwed woman, after all. We can’t think of anything more relaxing than taking a trip without worrying about paying for anything at all. This sounds like the best thing in life. Can we get married just so that we can take advantage of this part?
Picking The Matching Outfits
It looks like it is very important to pick the outfits during the bachelorette party. Ideally, the group is going to pick something creative, funny, and stylish all at the same time. In order to accomplish such a goal, it is important to give it a lot of thought and coordination. The result was worth it in the end. We love the cohesion and extra touch that it gives photos. On top of that, it looks fun! We especially like that they went for a white and red team here. This is a great way to ensure that all eyes are on you.
Do Not Forget To Show Off
In our opinion, it does not make a lick of sense to put in so much time, money, and effort if you are not going to snap as many photos as possible. It is not always bad to show off, you know. With the rise of Instagram and similar social media platforms, you better let everyone know just how much fun you guys are having! The entire point is to be seen, after all. As you can see below, these ladies are doing it right.
How To Catch Their Attention
When it comes to making people notice the bachelorette party, you can’t go wrong by wearing bright colors. The group knew this and used it to their advantage. How can anyone possibly ignore a neon orange bathing suit at the beach? These women knew what they wanted and did everything they could to get it. We are sure that a lot of people could not stop staring at their group for a number of reasons! We just hope that there were more people at the beach than this photo shows. Maybe you should do the same thing that they did at the next one that you attend.
Coordination Is Not Everything
It can still be stylish and effective even if you are not super coordinated. As a matter of fact, this might work out even better since it will make the photos are going to look more natural. The person in charge of the party must have told everyone to bring a red bathing suit and they will give out colorful covering to match. Another important thing that we can learn from them is the use of props. They chose balloons that went with the color scheme of the party. If you ask us, this is a very good way to tie it all together.
It Only Made Her Stand Out More
There is more variety to the colors, patterns, and styles worn by the ladies in this photo. In fact, it was probably not at all coordinated! Despite this, we love the fact that they all looked good in their own clothes. On top of that, the lack of matching outfits only made the bride-to-be stand out in her white outfit amidst all the patterns. Props to all of you, ladies! This photo was also taken while they had been out and about, which made it seem more natural and candid than the others that we have seen thus far.
The Life Of The Party
Ooh, we love all the colors in this photo! We are sure that they did not get ignored at all as they spent some time under the sun by this pool in Las Vegas. No doubt, this group had been the life of the party. The bride-to-be had a great time chilling in the poolside cabana. We love the fact that they also brought toys with them in the form of those mini-beach balls. This is a great way to add a playful touch to the party. Not only is it fun and entertaining, but it can also help them show off their athletic prowess!
Having A Blast With The Girls
At this point, we do not even know if we like matching looks or not. Even so, we have to say that the girls all looked great in their leopard bathing suits. The bride, on the other hand, looked nothing short of fab in her white one. The sun hats and the glasses of champagne made for elegant yet useful tools. They were clearly enjoying the time that they spent the day at the beach. As they should be! It must be hard to mess up when you are enjoying a nice drink and the calm waters of the Florida coast.
How To Make It Even More Dramatic
If you really want to give the bachelorette party a more sophisticated vibe, you should go for matching getups in black and white! In case you want to ramp up the drama some more, you can throw in glitter as well! Of course, the shimmery bits won’t stay suspended in the air forever, but they can add a fun effect to your photos. It would also be fun to distinguish the celebrant by making her wear a top that says “Bride,” while everyone else wears a top that says, “Babe.” The heart-shaped sunglasses looked so good on every single one of them! We wonder what kind of antics this group got up to later that day.
In The Spotlight
We love how much fun this bride was clearly having when this photo was taken! It is not hard to see that she loved being the center of attention. The sailor hat makes for a unique little detail. Since we can’t see her friends in the photo, the only thing that we can do is to assume that they are wearing black one-pieces that say “Bride Squad” or something similar to that. It is clear that they were all spending the bachelorette party on a boat, which we will take to mean that they are having the best time ever.
Adding A Personal Touch
Do you girls want to take it one step further? You can make things even better by ordering custom beach bills that come with slogans personalized for the bride! It is a fun and practical idea, especially if the group is going to the beach. Just make sure that the color goes well with the theme, of course.
Bring Your Own Bathing Suit
Here is another example of a bachelorette party that was more lenient with the dress code. We can see that the attendees were only asked to don a black swimsuit. You can tell a lot about the girls by looking at the ones that they slipped on. The sarong is the only matching thing they have among them.
A Word Of Advice
The truth is that there are so many ways to go about this event. If you want it to be a success, however, you should put the happiness of the bride above anything else. Isn’t that the goal in the first place? You should probably pick a destination that she likes or add in an activity that she loves with all her heart.
Consider Doing A Karaoke Night
That was exactly what these ladies in this photo did. The bride loved nothing more than karaoke, so they decided to spend one night devoted to it. We are glad to see that everyone was having fun singing into the mics! Aside from that, we love the fact that the bride looks like everyone else save for her crown.
Not Like The Others
Unlike many of the other parties on the list, these girls decided to go for something dainty and elegant instead of naughty. It is different, but their smiles tell us that they were having fun in their own way. We have to admit that they looked good in the outfit that they were wearing when this photo was taken!
On Their Worst Behavior
Ah, this was certainly very different from the one that came before it. The ladies in this photo were all about bad behavior, at least according to the shirts that they were wearing. Whatever they got up to on that weekend, they swore never to speak of it again. Oh well, the important thing is that they had fun!
Getting Drunk And Getting Married
The women in these photos decided to express their intentions across the front of their swimsuit. Everyone else was there to get drunk, while the bride was off to get married! We love the blue and white color scheme that they used for the event. Needless to say, they all looked great in this photo.
It is always fun to go with a theme no matter what the event is! As you can see, these girls decided to go with a beauty pageant one. This is actually a pretty fitting theme for a bachelorette party. The ladies looked regal enough to actually be beauty queens. Actually, are we sure that they are not titleholders already?
A Low Profile
If you take a look at this photo, you will probably not assume that it was a bachelorette party. After all, there is nothing to give it away! The bride did not wear a special outfit, nor did her friends. Sometimes, you want to have fun without drawing attention to yourself. There is nothing wrong with that either!
How can you possibly go wrong with a witty play on words? The answer is that you can’t! Based on the words printed on the swimsuits, we are guessing that they went to Hawaii for the bachelorette party. Great choice! Thanks to the personalized outfits, we can really see that her friends put in a lot of effort.
On Team Bride
When people break up, their friends often have to choose which side they are on. Getting married is not really a competition between the bride and the groom, but these ladies wanted everyone to show their loyalties! We simply adore the veil that the bride is wearing. This feels like a rehearsal for the big day!
