Is it even a real wedding if you don’t have a bit of pre-wedding party fun first? Part of the excitement of the big day isn’t just the wonderful commitment you are making to the person that you love, but all of the buildup and extra stuff that goes along with the wedding planning. One of the classic staples of wedding celebration is the bachelorette party. Although this event offers the bride and her bridesmaids a chance to have an unforgettable evening of bonding and camaraderie, coming up with unique bachelorette parties ideas can be difficult at times. So in this post, we are going to introduce you to three fun bachelorette party ideas that are perfect for brides who are having a fall wedding!
“Ghouls Gone Wild”
It may be November but if the bride and her favorite ladies are serious Halloween fans, then why not combine some ghoulish fun with the bachelorette party shenanigans? Have a costume competition and give all of the girls an excuse to dress up in their favorite Halloween outfits. Hold the bachelorette festivities in your own home, rent a hotel room, or take the evening to the streets for a fun pub crawl dressed up in ghoulish garb. Complete the evening with tasty Halloween and fall-themed treats and creatively creepy cocktails to sip on. Don’t forget to take tons of pictures of all the merriment and the wild Halloween costumes too!
Apple Picking Party
If bachelorette party attendees are a bit more low-key and not enticed by the wild night out that bachelorette parties usually are, why not have an apple-infused afternoon instead? Contact a local apple orchard and orchestrate a time for everyone to meet up to pick bushels of apples. Some orchards even have warm, sugary doughnuts and fresh apple cider too. If not, you could always head to a local cider mill for some refreshments after an afternoon of apple picking. If everyone is still going strong following those festivities, plan an apple bake-off and encourage all of the guests to gather around the kitchen to bake apple crisp, apple muffins, applies pies, and other sweet delights with the apples that they’ve picked. After apple picking and baking, settle down to enjoy all of the mouth-watering desserts. Don’t forget to make some apple cocktails to go with the baked goods!
A Play in The Hay Party
During the autumn season, plenty of local hayrides will start popping up so why not take advantage of them and plan the bachelorette party around a fun haunted hayride? Many places that host hayrides also have plenty of other fall fun including farm fresh treats, corn mazes, barnyard animals, pumpkin ice cream, maple sugar, hot apple cider, and more. If a haunted hay ride isn’t your style, check out the local fall festivals happening around your area. Instead of trying to plan the party all by yourself, you could instead attend of the local autumn event to enjoy live music, delicious hot meals and desserts, artisanal goods, fall beers, wines, and cocktails, and plenty of apple and pumpkin picking options to choose from! Finally, you could also look into state parks for a weekend hiking trip or a cabin party.
