The Ultimate Guide For Planning An Epic Bachelor(ette) Party

Why settle for beach vibes or nightlife when you can have the perfect blend of both aboard your own private yacht for the day?

It’s time to get the “I do” crew together and see out the ‘single life’ in style!

Plan a Fun Theme

Before we get into it…It’s not a bachelorette party without some #swag!

Festive party favors and accessories are what transform the weekend from a girls/guys get together to a bachelor(ette) bash, right?

Whether you go all out with matching outfits or just throw on some cute team bride sunglasses, don’t make the amateur mistake of forgetting to plan a theme.

It’s a rite of passage…

Giving everyone a reason to dress up makes for even more fun and games.

Plus, the photos that live on after the event are just brilliant.

In need of some inspiration?

Here are some ideas we’ve seen in the past that went down a treat:

  • Frida Kahlo
  • 90s
  • Nautical
  • American flag stripe/colors
  • Harry Potter
  • Country
