Ideas for the Ultimate Bachelorette Party

A Bachelorette Party is an exciting time for the bride-to-be and the people closest to her. It’s the ‘one last night on the town with the girls’ before a new chapter in life begins. If you are the one throwing the party, you are no doubt very close to the soon-to-be-bride which will be helpful in planning this event.

You need to take into consideration the type of personality the bachelorette has, what she enjoys doing and who she would want at her party. But where do you start? Here are some ideas for the ultimate bachelorette party!

 

Brewery Tour/Pub Crawl

Brewery Tours and Pub Crawls are a fun way to spend a night with the ladies and to experience different locations throughout the city. You can book a brewery tour with Pedal Pub or with Canadian Craft Tours

Booking directly with them leaves all the planning in their hands and all you have to do is show up! Alternatively, many people design their own pub crawl.

Try out places like Trolley 5, Hudsons Canada’s Pub, Knoxville’s Tavern, Greta Bar or add some bowling fun to your dinner and drinks at National on 10th.

 

Pole Dancing

Pole dancing has become quite popular in the last few years. What better way for the bride-to-be to have while getting some exercise and feeling great at the same time! When hearing the term Pole Dancing, most people picture exotic pole dance. 

However, there are actually different types of pole dancing available, including pole fitness and aerial arts! Check out R.Song Studios or Pole Junkies for lessons and schedules. Or book a Pole Dancing Party with Aradia Fitness!

 

Axe Throwing

Axe throwing is a fun and unique way to spend an hour or two! Whether you are an experienced axe thrower or never even held an axe before, this is for you!

Book a private party with BATL – The Backyard Axe Throwing League and have an expert coach show you the ropes! Forgot to book your party in advance? Visit AXE Throwing Calgary during drop-in times.  

 

Escape Room

Over the last decade, escape rooms have become popular worldwide. Today, there are over 5000 rooms in 88 countries! Who knew that so many people would pay to be locked in a room! This makes for a unique and unforgettable bachelorette party in many ways.

Working together to solve puzzles, find hidden objects and use clues to get out of a room in under 60 minutes can bring your group closer together as you learn how everyone’s mind works on a deeper level.

There are many escape rooms to choose from all over the city. Confined Escape Rooms offers some incredible visual effects, custom props and fun story-lines. And The Locked Room offers 3 locations in Calgary with 13 different, immersive and interactive rooms.

 

Clubs/Bars

Many bachelorette parties include drinks and dancing and there is no shortage of fun on your feet in Calgary. For drinks and dancing check out places like Cowboys. You can start your night off and try your luck at their casino before moving over to the dance floor. 

Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall has a great dancefloor and offers nightly dance lessons. Here you can also get the bride-to-be to try out their mechanical bull on her night out with the ladies! An uncommon bar for common people, Commonwealth Bar & Stage is another great location. An old warehouse that has been converted into a nightclub, Commonwealth has two dance floors and a back patio and plays a variety of hip-hop, rap and RnB.

 

Butlers in the Buff

Butlers in the Buff operate all over Canada, making bachelorette parties unforgettable everywhere! This male order company features tanned, muscular, charming men that are trained servers. They will serve your food, drinks and host party games for you!

There are a few options for clothing (or lack thereof) to suit all styles of bachelorette parties. Make your party the talk of the town with a buff, topless butler serving your drinks or doing the dishes!

Limousine or Party Bus

A limousine or a party bus rental is a great addition to any bachelorette party or it can BE the party! Fill a limo or party bus with the bride tribe and head out for an adventure! You can book with AM PM Limo to get to your pub crawl locations, take you to dinner reservations or to get the whole group to your house for games!


No party planned? MAKE the party bus the party spot by adding some drinks and/or entertainment to your ride. Get some bachelorette party decorations, book a few hours to tour around the city, stop at some great photo locations, listen to music and just enjoy being together before the bachelorette is off to start a new chapter in her life!

 

Drag Show

The ancient art of drag is more popular now than ever before! Drag shows are an excellent form of entertainment and feature performers in elaborate costumes and makeup while they lip-synch and/or dance to a famous song. 

Twisted Element offers drag shows every weekend and their dance floor is open 7 days a week! For drag shows, it is best to arrive early as the crowd gets quite large. Another spot for drag shows is Lolita’s Lounge. This alternative entertainment spot is home to Carly’s Angels and tickets sell out months in advance.

 

Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt

Doing a scavenger hunt for a bachelorette party is a fun and unique way to celebrate the bride-to-be. You can plan and create this yourself with all the DIY info available online, or book with a company and let them do the planning for you! 

Calgary Carte Blanche offers a YYC Stagette Scavenger Hunt that is 1.5 to 2 hours, host led adventure. They will split your party into 2 groups so that you can compete with and against your group of ladies. This is a great way to create memories with prizes for the winning team!

Also, Let’s Roam offers themed Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt packages that have been put together by a team of event planners. Explore your city, earning points along the way and aim to get on their leader boards! Let’s Roam works hard so that you can play hard on this special celebration!

 

Bachelorette Party Games

For those of you who want to throw the ultimate bachelorette party at home, there are a ton of DIY bachelorette party games and fun to be had! You can make a ‘pin the kiss’ game.

This is an adult version of the childhood favourite, ‘pin the tail on the donkey’. Just print out a large photo of the soon-to-be husband. Then get some ‘smoosh stickers’ and have everyone take turns, eyes closed, and pin the kiss as close as you can get to the mouth!

There’s also Lingerie Shower Bingo! Print off these bingo cards online and check off each box as it applies. For example, ‘someone mentions the groom’, check. Someone says “cute”, check.

Someone gifts something cheetah print, check. It’s an engaging game that will keep everyone on their toes for the entire party.

Create your own photo booth! There are many printouts available online for DIY photo booth props. Strike a pose with giant lipstick on a stick, Team Bride hashtags or props that go with your specific party theme.

There are also games you can purchase such as Booze N’ Babes Jenga, Prosecco Pong, Cards Against Humanity and Heads Up. The only limit to the fun for the ultimate bachelorette party at home is your imagination!
