Planning a bachelorette party may seem like a lot of pressure. You want everything to be perfect for your friend that’s getting married, and you want to be able to make sure everyone in attendance has a blast celebrating your bestie. Some tried-and-true recipes for a perfect bach you might consider: heading to a getaway destination, planning a night on the town, or a getting together for some pampering, lots of laughs and quality time. But as the season changes, and we welcome autumn, you’ll want to incorporate some seasonal touches and fall twists to your classic bach party to add some memorable (and instragrammable) flair to your get together. Here are our ideas for perfect fall bachelorette parties:
Fall Destination Bachelorette Party
Bachelorette parties are the perfect way to check a destination off of your bucket list, and that to with some of your very best friends. An ideal location to visit this autumn with your bride tribe is Napa Valley. According to U.S. News, September through November is the best time to get the full Napa experience with grape harvesting, wine festivals and gorgeous weather. The fall foliage will truly be the perfect backdrop to a fun weekend away from responsibilities.
Fall Bach Party Hack: If your group has already made arrangements to ditch the autumn breeze for a beach destination, take a piece of fall with you by making beautiful autumn themed crowns for the group to wear. They’ll look excellent in photos, be perfect to wear on the plane and definitely a cool accessory to sport throughout the trip.
Autumn Twist for the “Night On The Town”
A night on the town is always a fun approach for any bachelorette party: getting dressed up with your bests, strolling into local hot spots to take in the energy of a crowd and dancing to group favorites into the morning – SO FUN! But as fall rolls in, the afternoons are generally pleasant and the evenings get a little too chilly to handle. For this fall’s “night on the town” twist, we would recommend looking into day party options in your neighborhood, instead of a traditional bar crawl. Your group can get blowouts and head to a party brunch that pairs some delicious bites, with amazing music, drinks, and good times.
Fall Bach Party Hack: If you’re looking for something more casual, a day drinking event on a roof or a brewery tour are also great ways to celebrate the season while sporting your favorite flannels, and enjoying the crisp air and fall sun.
Pamper and Fun, Sponsored by Fall
A traditional pamper themed bachelorette party generally includes mani-pedis, facials, and a night of movies, games, and yummy food. Our autumn update to this day’s itinerary starts the group with a morning of pumpkin spice lattes, as y’all head to the apple orchard. Here the bride squad can have a lovely day to suit the mood of those in attendance: those that want to take in the day relaxing can do so with cider, hay rides, and beautiful strolls; while those that are looking to start the games early can compete an apple-picking competition. Other items on the agenda: fall manicures, a lovely scenic lunch and then a night in with your best buds. The apples in the morning can be turned into delicious treats for the movie night (recipes here) and face masks (learn how here).
Fall Bach Party Hack: Another great outdoor activity for the group is to put together a scavenger hunt. Make sure to scope out your town’s best fall activities and encourage the teams to take in the most of the autumn adventures with a hit list that won’t disappoint. Each check-point should be documented with a photo that you can turn into a special scrapbook present for the bride to commemorate the occasion.
