13 Easy Tips to Plan a Fun Bachelorette Spa Party

Brides: click here to share this link with your Maid of Honor!

Hello, lovelies! We’re kicking off this beautiful morning with bachelorette party inspiration. The ultimate bachelorette party doesn’t have to include bar hopping, clubbing, or hitting up the town. Some of the best bachelorette parties are low-key, partying at home with the bride-to-be and relaxing while you watch favorite movies, dish over delish drinks and appetizers, and pamper yourself with some at-home spa treatments. Here are thirteen fun ideas on how to throw a spa themed bachelorette party at home!

Bachelorette Spa Party

A bachelorette spa party is themed around pampering and relaxing. The idea is to incorporate a few at-home spa treatments (such as a face mask, foot scrub, manicure, pedicure, etc.) You can also choose to do nail applications, like these, which are easy and less messy than polish (and last significantly longer, too). Rent some movies, put on some music, order pizza, serve up delicious drinks and desserts, and just kick back and enjoy some laughs with your best friends. If your budget allows, have a makeup artist come in for a tutorial to teach everyone some fun new makeup trends or tricks. Alternatively, you can also hire a manicurist to come and pamper everyone with manis and pedis.

As with any party, it all begins with a guest list.

1. Make a guest list.

How many people are on your list? A bachelorette spa party might work best with a smaller group. Consider bridesmaids, moms, maid of honor, and a few additional guests.

2. Pick a location.

A house party or hotel suite work extremely well. You’ll want bathroom and sink access for spa treatments, along with enough room for everyone to relax, watch movies, eat/drink, and socialize.

3. Select a date.

Plan the bachelorette party just a week or two before the big day.

4. Pick out cute invitations.

What Kind of Shoes Should the Bride Wear? – Ask Emmaline

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! Emma here and today we’re fielding one of my favorite questions which came in to our Ask Emmaline inbox on Thursday. Anna asks,

I found my dress and now I want to find the perfect shoes. Do you have any tips on what kind of wedding shoes I should wear? Does the bride have to wear a particular color or style? I’m worried my favorite pair won’t be “bridal” enough. Thanks!Anna

“Fun Favor Ideas for Kids at Weddings?” – Ask Emmaline

Happy Friday, lovelies! Emma here. I loved reading all of your wonderful Ask Emmaline questions this week, so keep ’em coming. (I honestly read every single one!) If we haven’t posted yours yet, we will soon. Promise! Today we’re answering Samantha’s question about what kind of favors to give to kids attending her wedding. She asks,

Hi Emmaline! I’m working on wedding favors right now and we’re expecting approximately 10 children at our wedding. I know a wine bottle stopper isn’t exactly a great favor for all ages. ;) Any advice on a kid-friendly favor I can swap out for them instead? Thanks!Samantha

Hi Samantha! Kid-friendly favors in lieu of your selected favor (in your case, the wine bottle stopper) are an easy way to keep kids happy and having fun before dinner! One of our favorite ideas is a favor bag filled with small toys, a coloring book, crayons, and some candy (especially these!) — even better if there are even some fun wedding-themed games right on the outside! These genius kid-friendly favor bags are made by Mavora. And they’ll pretty much make you the coolest bride ever.

You can even add these cute “Have Fun” stickers to the favor bags!

Why Classic Guest Books Are *Always* a Great Choice for Weddings

Hi, lovelies! Emma here and it’s time to get down to business! Wake up, grab a cup of coffee, and get ready to cross “guest book” off your seemingly long list of wedding to-do’s. Today, you’re going to pick a guest book. That’s all there is to it! And since we’ve shared so many alternative guest books in the past, there’s really no reason you can’t find one you love in the archives, in The Marketplace, or right here in this carefully curated list. But first, let me get something off my chest. When did a simple guest book become boring? While lovely, not everyone envisions globes or maps or creative wall prints or large monogram letters as guest books. Some of us love a traditional, classic book! A guest book will never let you down; there are no accessories like batteries for a camera or special markers or photo paper required (even though you know I love these). There is just simple paper, a pen, and a line for guests to write their heartfelt wishes. So, we’re helping you out: we’re sharing twenty-five guest books with a little something for everyone! Just wait until you see the list! Read on for more…

Winter Wedding Confetti — #HANDMADEADAY

If you’re planning a winter wedding, you’ll love this tossing confetti from Flowerfetti! Tossing confetti is given to guests to toss for your walk down the aisle as newlyweds. Not all confetti is the same: Flowerfetti is biodegradable (unlike rice) and offers a delightful holiday-inspired fragrance. This specific confetti uses roses (a symbol for love), lavender (devotion), and rosemary (remembrance), along with fragrant cedar greenery, berries, and ivy. This confetti is perfect for a winter wedding send-off! It is fabric safe, eco-friendly, and photographs beautifully, leaving petal strewn paths behind.

Winter Wedding Confetti

We recommend filling petal cones with the confetti and pass it out to guests before the ceremony. You can get petal cones here.
