How to Plan a Bachelorette Party on a Budget

Savvy Secrets to throwing a Bachelorette Bash on a Budget!

Bachelorette parties are a fun way to celebrate your engagement with friends and get in some quality girl time, but sometimes a baller bachelorette party is out of the question.

Bridesmaid expenses tend to add up quickly, and it’s important to be mindful of the budgets of the group as well as the bride-to-be! The good news is that there are tons of ways to trim back costs and still have a fabulous time.

In this post, we’ll share how you can have a wallet-friendly bash without cutting down on the fun, thanks to some of the cute and affordable products from Icing!

How to Plan a Bachelorette Party on a Budget

Stay Local

The easiest way to cut down on bachelorette party costs is to avoid the expense of out-of-town travel. If the bride wants to lay in the sun with the girls, look for lake or beach destinations within driving distance, or even hit up a nice pool. (In cute matching bach party swimsuits for the gram, if you so desire!)

If she wants a rowdy night out, drive to the nearest city. You and your group can afford nicer restaurants or clubs if you save on airfare.

Schedule Time to Relax

Sometimes bridesmaids go overboard when planning bachelorette parties and schedule every single moment with activities. Unfortunately, that ends up being both expensive and exhausting.

Instead, reserve some time to simply hang out with the bride. You may even decide to be super chilled and have a girls’ night in! Sunbathe by the pool, pack a picnic for the park, try out some DIY projects, or give each other mini-makeovers.

Host a Pre-Game

Skip the fancy, overpriced lounge for pre-dinner drinks and instead kick things off with a pre-game at your home or in your hotel room. You can surprise the bride with a signature cocktail or pop a bottle of budget-savvy bubbly.

Have some drinks at home before your big night out– Icing has a great selection of Bridal Glassware to choose from to make it extra cute!

A private pre-game is also a great opportunity for playing a few bachelorette party games or letting the bride open gifts that she may not want to be seen in public!
