We are back with more bachelorette party ideas, but this time we are having a little bit of fun! (Don’t miss our first post on low-key bachelorette party ideas in the DC area.) While there are certain notions of what a “traditional” bachelorette party entails, today we’re bringing you some wild ideas… with a twist! Who says Las Vegas is the only spot for a crazy night on the town à la The Hangover!? If the bride-to-be is comfortable with participating in a more adventurous girls night out, we’ve got you started with a few ideas—right here in the DMV!
Girls Night Out
In typical bachelorette party fashion, no “traditional” party would be complete without crazy fun, drinks and embarrassing games. Fager’s Island of Ocean City, Maryland hosts their infamous Bachelorette Crawl year-round! Complete the “to-do” list, and the bride receives a novelty tee, $30 gift certificate and, of course, bragging rights. In Baltimore, you can book the Girlfriends Escape package with Harbor Magic Hotels (The Pier 5 Hotel, The Admiral Fell Inn or the Inn at Henderson’s Wharf) and arrange your party’s night for the Power Plant Live! Bar Crawl.
Exotic Dance Class
Unleash your inner bombshell and get together for a fun (comfortable!) night with a group of girls exploring exotic dancing while also getting an awesome workout in. Adventurous ladies in Virginia, check out The Phoenix Dance Studio in Charlottesville, Pole Pressure in DC or XPose Fitness in Baltimore.
Drag Show Brunch
Perry’s in Adams Morgan offers a truly unique brunch. From mimosas to a wonderful buffet, the infamous Sunday Drag Brunch is popular for its menu and entertainment that will make any guest blush. Make sure to arrive early and don’t forget your dollar bills.
Boudoir Photo Shoot
Many local DC wedding photographers offer boudoir (a French term for “bedroom”) photography that brides often use as a wedding gift to her partner. Typically, an afternoon of mini-sessions can be arranged where the bride-to-be and a small number of the bridal party can rotate through hair and makeup and an intimate photo session. These pin-up inspired photos can be tasteful and romantic!
Male strippers? Over it. How about avant-garde dining and cabaret-style entertainment featuring burlesque dancers? That’s more like it! SAX Restaurant and Lounge has all these and more in an opulent and beautifully gothic setting. Bachelorette party goers dressed to the nines, indulging in one of the largest sparkling wine lists in DC, will feel like they’re in Moulin Rouge.
