Who says that bachelorette parties need to involve a male stripper? Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fine idea, and a great time.  But maybe the bride isn’t into that, what do you do? Check out this list below for some great bachelorette party ideas. If you have any questions at all, give a call to ATOMIC, 949.250.3332 and ask for Trisha, she will be happy to answer all your questions.

1. Sexy Burlesque Dancing

Boa’s, satin gloves and tassels…burlesque is the hottest thing in town. Take the girls out for a group burlesque class and learn how to perform a sexy striptease. ATOMIC Ballroom offers group burlesque classes for your bachelorette party, talk to Trisha for more information.

2. Salsa Dancing Class

What better way to hang out with the girls that to take a group salsa class with a hot dance instructor. Salsa dancing is one of the most sensual partner dances out there, and a great dance to learn for a night at a bar or club. Learn the basics of salsa, a few spins and tricks, and get ready to get your sexy on. ATOMIC Ballroom offers group salsa classes for bachelorette parties, AND has a hot dance instructor to go with it (no really we do, ask anyone). Talk to Trisha for more information about group salsa classes for your event.

3. Pole Dancing Class

No longer restricted to Vegas night clubs and seedy parts of town, learning how to pole dance is one of hippest things these days. Not only do you learn how to move sexy, ramp around a real stripper pole, but pole dancing is a great way to get a workout. If you want more information on pole dancing classes for your party, our friends at Fire Fly Group Events offer several pole dancing packages.

4. Shooting

Yes girls, shooting. This isn’t only for men anymore. Head to a shooting range, let off a few rounds into a target, and you will find out why this is one of the most popular bachelorette event around. For more information about having a bachelorette party at a shooting range, head on over to our friends at FlyGroupEvents.com

5. Clubbing / Bar Hopping

A classic bachelorette event – nothing but fun. Grab a few bachelorette party favors (you know the ones), hop from club to club, playing games, having a few drinks, playing a few games and sending your bride to be off in a whirl of light and sound. To make sure everyone has a good time, consider hiring a limousine service or a party bus to take you from spot to spot, it’s a safe alternative to carpooling and you don’t have to worry about getting home safely.

6. Outdoor fun

Who says a fun bachelorette party stuff has to start at night? Why not take your group out on a trail or even an overnight camping trip? After a long hike surrounded by beautiful scenery, sit back, relax, tell ghost stories and eat s’mores around a camp fire.

7. Spa and Relaxation

Mani-pedi, body wraps, spa baths, facials and full body massages are only a few of the many papering treatments available at the major spas around town. Spend an afternoon relaxing with your best girlfriends, sharing stories, and getting papmpered like a queen. Check out Burke Williams Spa for an Orange County location.

8. Stay in

There is no rule that says that you have to go out for a bachelorette party. Maybe you and your girls aren’t the clubbing types. Grab a bottle of wine (I recommend Justin Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon), some great take out, and hang out at the house. Send the boyfriends and roommates out for the night, and enjoy some quality time with the bride to be and all your friends.

These are only a few ideas for a bride to be before her big day. However you look at it, you are getting together to wish a lifetime of happiness to one of your good friends as they get married to the love of their life. Enjoy your time together with her, not matter what you do.
