If this is your first lesbian bachelorette party, you might find yourself confused on how to organize a party that’s wild yet suitable for this unconventional couple. Planning a perfect LGBTQ+ bachelorette party requires some creativity, so here are few tips that might make this task a little easier for you.
One or two parties?
First, you need to figure out whether there will be one or two bachelorette parties. If the brides have two separate circles of friends, throwing separate parties is the best choice. On the other hand, if both of them have the same circle of friends, you might consider a joint party. Instead of two smaller parties, you can go all-in and organize an epic lesbian bachelorette party for the books. You can consult with the brides on this one since these parties are there to celebrate their last days of “freedom” by getting wild, which might not be possible if both brides are present.
Create a guest list
Next, you need to create a list of all the guests. Selecting the right group of people is more important than anything because it will greatly affect the atmosphere. When planning a lesbian bachelorette party, you can throw all the girls-only standards out of the way. The guests don’t have to be all ladies. Some of the best bachelorette parties have a mixed crowd of genders and sexual identities. Even with guys and non-binary people there, you can still do all the girly activities—even straight men can let loose and take part in all the party games if they are properly encouraged and provided with a safe space.
Pick a location
Throwing a home lesbian bachelorette party can be super fun. Pick the largest house from your friend group and start setting up decoration there. In case you know your guest list well and think the party will get too wild, you can rent an Airbnb and book some cleaners for the day after. If you have a big budget to work with, a destination bachelorette party is always a great idea. However, keep in mind that the party is being thrown for a lesbian couple, and not every country or city is LGBTQ-friendly. The US, Western European countries and Australia are generally safe. You want everyone to be as comfortable and safe as possible.
Choose the main event
Every party needs to have the main event that will mark the party and stay in everyone’s memory. If you’re planning a destination bachelorette party to a very liberal country like Australia, you will find the sexiest strippers in Byron Bay that will put on an unforgettable show for the bride to be and all the party members. Of course, make sure to be respectful and check with the other bride whether that activity is appropriate. If that’s too wild for your bridal party, you can book a party bus to take you on a bar crawl. By the end of the night, everyone in the city will celebrate your upcoming big day.
Organize some games
There’s no bachelorette party without some games—this goes for same-sex brides as well. Most straight bachelorette parties involve a lot of penis games, and you don’t have to throw these ideas out the window completely. They are easy to modify and make them focus on vaginas or strap-ons instead of penises. Some of the classic games for bachelorette parties you can easily modify include the “panty game”, “do you know the bride?” and “pin the tongue”. These games are not only super fun and always get a ton of laughs, but they are also a great way to break the ice and make all the bridesmaids interact and bond.
Include post-party relaxation
If you’re planning a wild bachelorette party, make sure to include some relaxation for the day after. One of the ideas might include a spa visit—it’s a neutral environment where both girls and guys can relax and hang out. There are affordable packages for groups that include spa treatments and lounge access. After a massage or sauna detox, you can relax in the lounge, exchange gifts and piece together the events of the last night.
If you follow the tips above, you will organize the best and most unforgettable lesbian bachelorette party. Both brides and their friends will crown you the bachelorette party royalty for sure!
