As with all weddings, a plethora of to-dos come before the actual ‘I do.’ Amidst the whirlwind of decisions from dinner menus to your wedding shoes, the spotlight shifts to one quintessential agenda leading up to the big day— the bachelorette party. Setting the stage for matrimonial bliss, the bachelorette is an event surrounded by excitement and the camaraderie of loved ones. Though typically linked to a boisterous night at the club or a bar crawl, there are more ways than one to celebrate the journey to becoming a bride.
If there is one part of the wedding where all rules can be thrown out the window, it would be the bachelorette party. After all, it is generally known as the bride’s last night to run free with her closest friends. If the bride’s taste is a little out of the box, organising a special night-out true to her charm would require her bridesmaids to explore a few unconventional options. From an elevated art jamming session to exploring traditional crafts with a twist, consider challenging the typical approach to a hen’s night—instead turning the event into a whimsical soiree filled with memorable activities.
Here, find Vogue Singapore’s roundup of the best experiential ideas for a bachelorette party to remember.
