Wedding planning can be extremely stressful, which is why so many women look forward to their bachelorette party – a solid excuse for a night of complete, unfiltered fun. But if you’re bored of the conventional tropes – penis cupcakes, clubs and strippers – then here are some great, unique ways for you and your gals to let off some steam.
Paintball parties are a great way for the bride and bridesmaids to just let their inner maniac loose. Nothing gets rid of stress faster than running around shooting your friends.
Very few things are as intense as being trapped in a room for an hour or more while you and your friends try to solve the numerous puzzles which will aid in your escape.
Yes, this one seems a lot out there, but axe throwing is all about getting together with your friends and cheering each other on as you aim for a bulls-eye. It’s a nice way for brides and bridesmaids to bond. Plus, it seems extremely stress relieving.
Hip Hop Dance Class
This activity is incredibly energetic, so expect to build up a sweat. And who knows, you might pick up some awesome new dance moves to bust out on the dance floor at the wedding.
Enjoy a night out singing the cheesiest love songs on the planet. If a lyric or two ends up in your vows, then that’s just a happy coincidence.
Love the outdoors? Love completing challenges? Then a scavenger hunt is perfect for you and your hens. Scavenger hunts generally take a few hours and are designed to establish strong teamwork with invigorating tasks.
Life Drawing Class
If you’re in the mood for something a little more risqué, but not too flashy, then a life or erotic drawing class may be just for you. Or, if you want to keep things PG, then a traditional drawing class is also a great choice. It’s a great chance for a bachelorette party to be a little giggly as they get their creative juices flowing.
An interactive and collaborative cooking class will help a bachelorette party unite as they tackle on saucepans, stoves and ovens.
Channel your inner Rocky and engage in an intensive, yet rewarding session of boxing with your friends.
Get creative with your friends and challenge each other with crafts. Have mini competitions and see who can create the ugliest hat or puppet. Or, assign everyone a different theme and see who can create the weirdest thing from it.
