Throw a Bachelorette Party in Your 50s
Times have changed. More and more women live their lives however they want and walk down the aisle whenever they want and how many times they want (or not at all). That’s why not only the idea of a perfect wedding has changed, but also the concept of a bachelorette party.
Every bride has her own image of this night. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first, second, or fifth wedding; even if you’re over 50, you deserve a proper hens party. You may not be 23 anymore, and you probably can’t drink as much as you used to, but apart from that, there won’t be a lot of differences – you can have a bachelorette party like any other bride, whatever her age. How will it look, it all depends on your personal taste, but here are some ideas for making this day special for you.
Bachelorette Party in Your 50s: Enjoy a strip show
It is one of the best and the most popular hens night ideas in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and probably in many different places all over the world. It is never too late to enjoy some handsome men performing for you.
If you don’t want to spend hours planning this one night, there are packages available that will let the venue organize it for you. There will be drinks (not too much), dancing and entertainment – a big show that’s very often considered to be better than the majority of plays, musicals, and concerts.
Make your own lingerie
A little DIY is always a good idea to spend some time with your friends, have lots of fun and be left with a souvenir to begin your new life with. And what can be better than a piece of hand-made lingerie?
All you need is to ask everyone to buy some bras and panties – regular, basic stuff available on sale – along with the desired embellishments, like sequins, buttons, flowers, beads, or anything else that comes to your mind. For something more professional, you can probably find a bra-making class in your area or order special kits for making lingerie.
Relax at the yoga retreat
Planning the wedding can be extremely stressful, especially as the big date is getting closer, and there aren’t many things as relaxing as yoga. So why shouldn’t you make it a whole weekend with yoga and your best friends? Organize matching outfits with your besties, turn off your phone and channel some peace and love together.
For those wanting a little bit more fun, there are also packages combining some daytime relaxations with nighttime partying.
Would you like to see some great outdoors and connect with nature, but you’re not sure you want to spend your night in a tent, on the ground, and struggle with back pain later? If that’s the case, then glamping is definitely something you should go for. Just like the name may suggest, it’s the perfect combination of camping and glamour. You will be able to spend some time away from the city, watch the stars, enjoy your friends’ company, have a campfire, fish, and swim without sacrificing any luxuries.
Go on a hot air balloon excursion
If you aren’t afraid of heights, you can hire a hot air balloon and have a little party in the clouds. Go to your favorite area with it and admire familiar, beloved views from a totally different perspective. Sip some champagne, bring snacks, and have a unique photoshoot with the landscapes.
Take a perfume workshop
If you choose this idea, you won’t only learn how to mix fragrances and make perfumes, but you will be able to create your own bottle for you and your bridesmaids to use on the big day. You may join an existing class for a day or find something more private to smoothly go from a workshop to a little party with your besties.
This may be the perfect idea to start the day of your bachelorette party. Choose something that you particularly care about. For example, if you’re an animal lover, get some matching t-shirts with your friends and volunteer at the nearest animal shelter. Who knows, maybe you will start something new that day, not only the life of a married woman. Do something good and then have some fun.
Take a road trip
Take a car and visit some of your favorite places, the places you have always wanted to see, or simply drive and discover. Take snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, prepare some car games and make sure to take a lot of photos.
Bachelorette Party in Your 50s: Think about yourself
Do you feel inspired? Maybe you will go for something else, maybe you will choose one of these ideas or combine several – whatever is your decision, make sure that it’s 100% what you want. It is your night and you shouldn’t feel forced or obliged to do anything.
