7 Beach Bachelorette Party Ideas Everyone Will Always Remember
The bling ring is on your finger. The wedding invitations are out. It’s really happening, you’re getting married, and the magical day will be here before you know it!
Before that, though, there’s something important you have to do. No, it’s not the seating chart for your reception (that’ll get done eventually). It’s your beach bachelorette party.
A beach bachelorette party makes for a top-shelf time with your best gal pals before you get married. For one last hurrah before you tie the knot, you want to make sure that it’s the best time ever.
Read on for seven beach bachelorette party ideas that will create lasting memories shared between you and all your besties.
What Makes an Unforgettable Beach Bachelorette Party?
Sharing fun activities in a beautiful beach location with some of your favorite people in the world should, inevitably, add up to an unforgettable time. To make sure it all comes together, there are a few decisions to be made.
Here are a few things you can put in motion ahead of time for your bachelorette party to set sail on the right course:
The Whole Girl Gang Is There
You want everyone to be there. These are the ladies who love and support you, who’ve supported you through your ups and downs. Your bachelorette party may technically be centered around you (the bride), but it’s just as much a way to show your girls how much you appreciate the roles they’ve played in your life. Girls do truly run (and rock) the world.
Plan the beach bachelorette party far out enough so that everyone has time to clear their schedules. Pick a date that everyone can make or as many people as possible.
You also may be able to find group rates and bachelorette discounts for hotels and activities you plan to enjoy during your time there. Plan early, try to accommodate everyone if possible and invite the people who’ve helped make you who you are today.
Sweet, Creative Beach Bachelorette Invitations
Once you’ve narrowed down your list of who to invite, you want to send out an invitation that gets them excited right away. You may have already asked girls to be your bridesmaids, but you could also couple the formal “will you be my bridesmaid” invite with the bachelorette invite.
With a marker, you could write a cute invitation on a seashell. You could give your girls a gift card for a new swimsuit with your invitation. Something that hints at the beach weekend and goes a little outside of the box will leave a personal touch that everyone will always remember. Or hand out a literal tropical puzzle that solves the metaphorical destination puzzle.
Awesome Beach Location
The appeal of a beach bachelorette party is obvious. It’s warm, it’s in nature, and you’ll arrive back home with a tan. But while the beach may seem like an obvious choice, there are still a few different ways you can go when choosing the beach location that suits your dream bachelorette party.
You might start off by checking out a list of the best beach bachelorette destinations. Notice that there are a few different kinds of vibes you can choose from.
Do you want a relaxing bachelorette party? Do you want to spend your time getting facials and mani-pedis at a spa? If so, perhaps a beach resort is the setting for your bachelorette party.
Are you hoping to get some nightlife in as well? Choose a beach that’s located near a city with bars and nightclubs, such as Miami or Los Angeles.
Beach Bachelorette Party Favors
The key to great and memorable bachelorette party favors for your beach getaway with the girls is to choose items that they’re going to get a lot of use out of. Think about the setting and give party favors that are thoughtful and practical.
How about a fancy sunscreen? Maybe something with some glitter in it.
A cute beach towel is an excellent choice. You could give everyone the same towel so that you’re matching or choose a different one for each individual. FUNBOY has a ton of adorable options, including fringed beach towels, tie-dye, and retro-inspired designs
Snacks, sunglasses, lotion, and flip-flops are fun choices. You could always go the custom t-shirt route with a custom bachelorette slogan. Put all your party favors in a trendy beach tote they’ll enjoy time and again, both during and after the party.
Bachelorette Slogan / Hashtag
A slogan for your bachelorette party will accomplish a few different things for you. It might seem silly, and it is in a way, but it’s also fun and serves a couple of purposes.
For one, your bachelorette slogan will further unite your group of girls under one declaration. One mission. One bachelorette weekend has an official slogan.
Your bachelorette slogan will set the tone for the awesome party you’re going to bring with you everywhere you go. Print it on shirts, or maybe even bracelets or necklaces if you want to do something a little bougie.
Whatever slogan you choose, and however you might represent it with some sort of uniform, your bachelorette slogan should be a representation of the collective vibe you bring with you.
If you meet people, they should know you’re the #WhateverYourSloganIs people.
It also doubles as a hashtag so that you can organize and share photos more easily.
Beach Bachelorette Slogan / Hashtag Ideas
The best bachelorette slogan is probably going to be something personal that you come up with yourself or that one of your girls comes up with. You might include your name as part of it or your to-be last name.
Here are a few tried and true, classic examples to help get you started.
Cute Photo Ops
Once you’ve settled on a hashtag, you have an easy way to keep track of all the adorable (and some perhaps, hilarious) photos that will be taken during the beach bachelorette party. Make sure to take advantage of all the photo ops that will present themselves.
Obviously, snap lots of pics on the beach. Everyone wear your IBTWLPDB for a photo! (In case you’re wondering, it stands for itsy bitsy teenie weenie little polka dot bikini… Is that not a standard abbreviation?)
For beach photo ops that will jump right off your social feed, get a few floats. They look awesome and take your beach experience to a whole new level. Set it up on the beach to catch some rays, or bring it to the water to float all your pre-wedding stresses away.
We have a ton of cute options for your bachelorette party. You’ll definitely want to get one that several people can enjoy at once, like the Giant Cabana Dayclub, which seats four comfortably.
You can’t go wrong with a two-pack of inflatable chaise loungers, either. Like all FUNBOY floats, they’re easy to pack, transport, set up, and enjoy.
A Little Relaxation, A Little Rage
Maintaining the right balance of relaxation and rage is important for the sustainability of your beach bachelorette party. If you go hard, you gotta recover as well. That’s why it’s essential to have a range of activities to exercise your pre-wedding angst and recover from the toll it takes.
Balance chill bachelorette activities in the afternoon with high energy activities at night. AKA, get pampered and dolled up at the spa during the day and be the highlight of the nightlife once the sun goes down.
For something that’s right, smack dab in the middle of party vibes and chill vibes, bring along an inflatable floating cooler. That way, you can keep the chill going while at the same time spreading out in the sun. Rest your eyes for a minute, and soak in the incredible bachelorette party you’re having.
Celebrate and Support
There’s a lot to be excited about. Not only are you getting married, but you have an incredible beach bachelorette party to look forward to.
Once everyone confirms, and you book the trip, you can start making preparations here and there so that the getaway goes as smoothly as possible. Taking care of the essentials ahead of time means you can just look forward to all the fun it’s going to be.
Pack your bags with bathing suits, inflatables, and the bachelorette items to help make the party a truly unforgettable time for you and your girls.
