10 Bachelorette Party Ideas for the Homebody Bride
Contrary to popular belief, a bachelorette party doesn’t have to be tacky. Nor it has to be expensive or involve traveling somewhere exotic (though that sounds nice but $$$). Having a fun get-together with all the bridesmaids + bride doesn’t have to be costly NOR it has to be cliché. If your bride isn’t the Vegas-casino nor the strip club type, chances are she will love to be surprised with any of these ideas below, and your bridal squad will thank you as well:
Let’s get started!
