Bachelorette on a Budget:
Party Ideas That Won’t Break the Bank

Planning a bachelorette party is a daunting task, and it can be downright stressful if you have a limited budget. Not to worry! There are plenty of excellent ways to create a memorable party without completely destroying your bank account. Here are some fantastic ways to keep a bachelorette party both economical and fabulous!

Stay Close to Home

When choosing the party’s location, try looking at opportunities near you, rather than spending money on airfare or other transportation. For something different, play tourist with a walking food tour of Troy or Albany customized for your group, or try a day trip to a local vineyard for a wine tasting, or have a picnic or grill out in your local park. You can even keep it active with a trip to an old-school roller rink — or just put on some roller skates! No matter where you are, there is always something to do. If you want to keep it close to home, try decorating with a bachelorette theme and streaming some excellent music for a dance party!

Rock Some Outdoor Fun

For a nature experience, book a campsite at a local state park for a cool outdoors bachelorette party experience. Bring your s’ mores ingredients, hot dogs, and a portable speaker for chill tunes, and you’ll have set the scene for the perfect camping party! Don’t want to be locked in for the whole night? Take a day at the beach instead! Break out the swimsuits and sunscreen, and sunbathe to your beach tunes all day long at the local lake or oceanfront!

Enjoy a Sleepover

If the bride is more of a homebody, hearken back to high school with a chill pajama party. If you plan on drinking, you can keep it at home and won’t have to worry about paying for a Lyft at the end of the night. The bride and her ladies can kick back and celebrate her last single hurrah with a cozy night of silly games, junk food, and home spa treatments. You can even create a sleepover kit for the bride-to-be complete with ultra comfortable leggings, a bachelorette-themed sleep shirt, a sleep mask and some cozy socks. A sleepover pajama party is the perfect low-cost way to reconnect, reminisce, and revisit your youth with your besties in the comfort of your own home!

Cater Your Own Event

With simple recipes for hors d’oeuvres and easy-to-make cocktails available all over the internet, it’s easy to whip up a great spread! Take a little time in advance to research some recipes, and prepare simple dishes and drinks that will keep the party flowing. Rather than dropping cash on an expensive restaurant, a little preparation can go a long way, and you get to be sure the bride gets exactly what she wants. Whether it’s grilling out in the back yard or setting up a fancy charcuterie board, let her choose her favorite party food and run with it!

Just because you’re working within a tight budget doesn’t mean you can’t put together a legendary bachelorette party. All you need to do is figure out what everyone’s into, plan out some quirky low-cost activities, and have fun! When everyone’s having an absolute blast, nobody will care that it didn’t cost a small fortune.
