As bachelorette parties have become more and more adventurous, they have also become more luxurious—and that often means more expensive. It’s not uncommon for bridal party members to pitch in $1,000 each for the event. You can, however, shave some of the costs down by getting creative with certain elements, like accommodations and activities. 

 

Looking for budget-friendly bachelorette party ideas that won’t take away the “fun” factor? We’ve got several:

 

  • Scavenger hunts are an action-adventure way to kick off a bachelorette party, and they can be relatively inexpensive. Stick to one heavily populated area—like a mall or arts district—or have your friends traipse across the city. Get personal with the clues for items you’re searching for to really hone in on your bride-to-be. For example, you can take a picture at the place where the bride and groom had their first date.

 

  • A good old-fashioned sleepover is a great way for the bridal party to celebrate and spend some quality time together. Plus, opening up your home means not having to pay for hotel rooms or travel, which can really cut down on costs. You can unleash your inner teenager and go for plush pajamas, pints of ice cream and a variety of games. You can make it a themed movie night and binge watch the bride-to-be’s favorite flicks. If you want to make it really special, hire a local chef to come cook dinner for the night.

  • Destination bachelorette parties sound pricey, but they don’t have to be. This is most easily accomplished by a larger guest list, so that communal costs are less of a burden. For example, if everyone shares a vacation rental right here in Los Angeles, you can seriously slash your travel, room and board costs. Plus, with access to a kitchen, you can cook more and save money on eating out. Make it easier to get around by renting a place within walking distance of activities you're interested in. And Turnkey notes you can easily find a rental if you'll be hiking in hipster-friendly Silver Lake, embracing the boho lifestyle of Venice Beach, hitting up museums and sports games in Central LA, visiting the Hollywood Hills, or cruising down the coast from El Segundo to Redondo Beach.

 

  • Give back to your community to honor your bride-to-be. A weekend of service is a thoughtful and selfless way to celebrate her milestone. Choose causes that are important to her or could be meaningful to her life in some way. For example, if she is a nurse, you could all go donate blood together or volunteer at a children’s hospital. If you can, try to mix things up with indoor and outdoor activities, manual labor and softer skills.

  • Take a cooking class with all your friends for a unique night out that lets you bake your cake and eat it, too. Cooking classes can be educational as well as a lot of fun. You’ll be able to enjoy each other’s company while enjoying each other’s cooking. Make it really adventurous by learning to cook something different—like sushi or creme brulee.

 

  • The pub crawl can be a budget-friendly idea for the bride-to-be who is more down-to-earth. Picking several bars close to each other lets you save money on ride-shares, while picking ones hosting happy hour or ladies’ nights can save you money on drinks. If you want the attention, you can wear the traditional crowns, sashes, T-shirts and other traditional bachelorette party garb. Ham it up at each location to get drinks on the house or as gifts from other patrons.

     

    Being creative with your bachelorette party ideas is optional, but highly recommended. It’s the best way to make low-cost high excitement when it comes to planning a memorable event for the bride-to-be. Whether it’s a cooking class or enjoying a staycation in Los Angeles, you’re sure to put together a party the bride-to-be will enjoy.
