How to Throw a Bachelorette Party on a Budget
Congrats! Your girl is getting married!! Exciting right? And a little, expensive too, eh? Well it doesn’t have to be! Today we’re sharing How to Throw a Stellar Bachelorette Party on a Budget, so you can have a blast and splurge on something else (like perhaps the plane tickets for the wedding 😬)
1. Make it a Girls Night Out
Instead of going on a trip, or throwing a party at your house or a venue, plan an epic girls night out on the town. Start with dinner at the bride's favorite restaurant, then drinks at a happening bar and, — I think you know what’s coming next — dance the night away at your city’s best dance spots. Rather than splurging for catering, decorations or clean up, you’ll just have to cover the cost of the invites, the bride’s dinner and drinks, and maybe a few small bachelorette accessories (hello sash!). Major $$ saved. Now, how to make it stand out from a regular Saturday night with the girls...?? Read on!
2. Pick a Fashion Theme
What you’re (happily) lacking in spending you can make up for in creativity. Set a theme for your bachelorette bash to add an extra element of anticipation, and be sure you’ll look like a legit girl gang hopping from club to club.

3. Save on the invites!
Instead of ordering from an expensive stationery company, use a printable template for the bachelorette party invitations! Printable templates are awesome… Annd we’re not just saying that because we are master designers of them. Okay, maybe we are. Nonetheless they are the perfect way to get beautiful stationery designs at a price cheaper than a trip to Chipotle. AND, wait for it, you can save loads on printing too. Just take your template to a local print shop (or Kinkos, Office Depot, etc) and voila! You have affordable, killer invitations. And your bride-to-be-best-friend will be so impressed ✨
