Fit and Fun: Alternative Bachelorette Parties

Calling all brides and bridesmaids! You’ve seen all the pins on Pinterest — the same old ideas for wedding showers and bachelorette parties that you’ve seen a hundred times. Are you looking for a new way to bond with your besties? Not interested in unhealthy binge drinking or wild shenanigans? Here are some alternatives to the typical bachelorette party.

1) Take a healthy cooking class.

It’s always more fun to learn something new with friends. Find a local cooking class at a culinary store or school. Pick a night that focuses on healthy or vegetarian foods. Challenge each other to make the most daring or beautiful dish. Be sure to Instagram your creations — talk about an upgrade from snapping a pic of someone else’s recipes. This will be a #BrideTribe activity you won’t forget — and neither will your follows.

2) Get together for an outdoor adventure.

Don’t get cooped up in a stuffy bar. Rise early, and get out on the open road. Plan a camping trip. Leave your phones at home and truly connect with your best gal pals. Rent canoes or paddle boards. Race each other to the other side of the lake. Who decided that celebrating getting married can’t mean an invigorating activity in the fresh air? You’ll all return refreshed and destressed.

3) Sign up for group fitness with the bridal party.

Instead of partying for just one night, take charge of your health and fitness together for a few weeks of group fitness or physical training. Encourage each other to overcome obstacles, set personal goals, cheer on your fellow bridesmaids, and — best of all — look fab in your dresses on the big day.

We’d love to help you plan an out-of-the-box party for your wedding party. Contact us today about group training.
