Hi bees! My bachelorette is coming up in two weeks from tomorrow (!) and I’m getting excited!I wondering what to wear. I’ll probably choose something from my closet, or pick up something new but inexpensive as we’re on a tight budget at the moment. What did you ladies wear (or what are you planning on wearing) for yours? Also curious, what did you/will you do for your bachelorette celebration? I’ve noticed a lot of bees seem to take trips, does anyone else still do a night out?
For mine, we’re going to dinner at a nice but not overly fancy/pricey restaurant, followed by Shakespeare in the park at my favorite place with a desserts and wine picnic, and then meeting up with the guys (the bachelor party is the same night) for a laser tag battle and drinks at this arcade bar haha. My maid of honor is amazing for coming up with a way to include all of my favorite things haha, and I’m pumped! I had been thinking of getting a dressy jumpsuit but now I’m thinking of just wearing a dress I got for my best friend’s bachelorette party last year, it’s short and black with embroidered flowers.

bluejaybride : That sounds fun!
For mine we got a cabin a few hours from our city in this cute little village, the first night we went out to a “fancy” (nothing is REALLY fancy in this town) dinner, then to the “club”, I wore a black romper and all my girls wore colored or floral rompers/dresses. I don’t think we really planned it this way, just happened to work out that way.
The next day we did a river float, then hung out at the cabin and went into the hot tub, got drunk and made a bunch of frozen pizzas.
That weekend was so much fun!
Enjoy your party, it sounds awesome!

Sounds like an awesome night!!!!
I’d do a dressy jumper or maybe a maxi dress that’s light and dressable up or down.
I’d wanna be able to move for laser tag and not worry about something short or tight.

That sounds like a fun night! From an aesthetic point of view, I love the idea of the jumpsuit. But given you will be drinking a good amount, are you going to want to mess with it every time you need to use the restroom?

I wore a white 50s style swing dress I got on amazon, paired with some cute floral boots to dress it down, and my wife (then FI) wore a nice white button-down shirt and jeans. We had our bachelorette together, and everyone who attended wore black. The color contrast was fun. 🙂
We got a house on AirBNB in Portland that slept 10-12, and then a few people who lived in or near Portland also came, so it was a good group of people. We had a bbq dinner at the house, then all hopped on a karaoke party bus to take us to multiple clubs throughout the night and then back home. The next day, most of us went for brunch at a place that had a bloody mary bar. It was such a blast!

This is the dress I’m wearing for mine (I’m not sure what we’re doing yet (I wanted it to be a surprise) friends who are planning it said that this dress is appropriate for what they have planned). I’d say wear something comfortable, white also (if you want to) and doesn’t look too casual. It sounds like an awesome night. Have fun!

All those activities sound fun! I’d probably do a romper of some sort. I love Shakespeare in the Park but find the ground can get a bit hard and I shift around a lot (I usually wear stretchy maxis or a romper). Plus the running around for lazer tag. Add some nice accessories and you are set 🙂

We did a little party/went to the bar on a Friday, then we went to the wineries on Saturday. It was in Feb, so it was cold, but we had long sleeve T-shirt’s made for the wineries. And I did a white dress I had in my closet for Friday night!
Your events sound awesome but a dress may be problematic. If I were you, I’d do a cute romper or jumpsuit! It will make it easier at the park and at laser tag!

My bachelorette was in December so it was cold! We did an escape room just the bridal party, then checked into an air bnb in town and met up with 8-10 other friends. Went to dinner and speakeasy/whiskey bars all night! I wore a long sleeved dark green sequin dress. I just couldn’t find anything white I liked…

I wore this dress: https://www.prettylittlething.us/white-thick-lace-high-neck-binding-detail-skater-dress.html
That website had a ton of inexpensive white options. The waist hangs a little lower than the natural waist and it was sooo cute and flattering. I love it and hope I can wear it again soon!
My bachelorette was a day at Epcot at Disney World and an evening of dinner and drinking in Disney Springs. It was absolutely perfect—like yours, my Maid/Matron of Honor just knew exactly what I wanted!
