She'll soon be tying the knot, but for one night she gets to be just plain naughty. For better, not for worse, Planet Bachelorette is here to help you pimp your bride.
Start with the basics. A funny t-shirt is a great way to make the bride stand out from the crowd. Don't want the bride to take on all of the embarrassment? Try choosing a theme for the entire bridal party — the 80's are a perennial favourite. Prefer something more subtle? Simple t-shirts adorned with “bride” and “bridesmaid” or “Future Mrs. X” will still get the point across.
Now that you've got her covered from the neck down, it's time to start from the top. You can add a little sparkle to her ensemble with a veil or tiara.
Her fiancé may have taken care of the ring, but that doesn't let you off the hook. No bachelorette's outfit is complete without the proper accessories! If you're having the bride do a scavenger hunt, try and tie some of the accessories to her tasks. Does she need a guy to give her his boxers? No sane man would risk being charged with resisting undress by an official pecker inspector.
Want a more permanent accessory? Have the bride show her commitment to saying “I Do” with a tattoo! Ok, maybe not permanent, but temporary is fun too.
Whether champagne, margaritas, or soda, the bride-to-be's drink of choice just wouldn't be festive without the appropriate container. Make sure the glass is always half full and don't let the bachelorette pay for her own drinks!
Now that you've got her all dressed up, you're ready to go! By the power vested in us by the state of the Internet, PlanetBachelorette.com now pronounces your bachelorette ready for the night.
A policeman, a fireman and Elvis walk into a party. No, it's not a bad joke; these are just some of the fantasy costumes you can choose from when hiring a stripper for a bachelorette party. If a hound dog in a leisure suit isn't your style, how about a plumber, a cowboy or a security guard? The theme is only limited by your imagination and your budget. For planning the perfect party for the bride-to-be that's down with getting down, here's PlanetBachelorette.com's guide to the strip search.
Sure the bride-to-be likes to party, but does she really want a stranger's manhood in her face? Avoid an embarrassing situation by being upfront with your intentions and let her decide how far she wants it to go. If you want it to be a surprise, try and feel out the situation without giving too much away. Want to go the extra mile? Ask the groom-to-be too: he'll probably have an opinion.
Most major Canadian cities will have an exotic dancer service that caters to private parties. If you can't find anything online or in the newspaper, visit the local strip club, even if they don't have male dancers they could provide a contact. Once you've found a reputable service, ask for pictures. You're paying good money to be picky. When you've decided you definitely want a stripper at the party, make the booking early to avoid disappointment.
Don't forget to ask for something in writing! You want Don Juan here, not some guy you Don Juan anything to do with.
Hiring a male stripper for a private party can cost anywhere from $250 to $300 for a 20 to 30 minute dance and he'll likely spend most of this time with the bride. If any of the other ladies are looking for some one-on-one time, expect to pay more. The same goes for the “Full Monty,” which can tack upwards of $50 on the final bill. Keep in mind that none of these prices include tips so make sure to have some extra bills on hand.
You can have the bachelorette party almost anywhere, but there are some important things to remember:
- If you're having the bachelorette party somewhere other than a private residence, make sure you check with the right people about their naked man policy. Some establishments might not take kindly to a hot cop in tear-away pants roaming the halls.
- Give good directions! Roy Orbison might drive all night to get to you, but the stripper won't. If he arrives late because of poor directions, that's time he won't be spending at the party.
- You can set the mood in any location with the right decorations. Want a wild and crazy vibe? You can get pretty much anything shaped like a penis. Including lighting.
Don't want to clean baby oil stains (or worse) from your carpet? Opt to take the bride-to-be to a strip club instead. Make sure you dress her appropriately so she attracts the right kind of attention.
These four steps should get you started, but remember to do your research. This is the bride-to-be's big night out and you'll only want the surprises that you planned for.
PlanetBachelorette.com does NOT provide strippers for bachelorette parties, but we do have almost everything else to make the night memorable.
Does your bride-to-be subscribe to Gourmet over Cosmo? Is her dream man a baby-faced Jamie Oliver or a kitchen bad-boy like Gordon Ramsey? Does she actually know how to pronounce ‘Quinoa’ and use it properly in a sentence? If you've answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then your bachelorette is a foodie. Defined as a person who has a passionate interest in all things food related, you don't want to show up at this lady's party with something from a can. So push aside the instant mixes and start things from scratch with PlanetBachelorette.com's guide for planning the perfect gourmet-themed bachelorette party.
Try these simple ideas to up the ‘chow’ factor.
A gourmet classic. Choose at least three different types of cheeses to grace your plate and vary by taste or texture. If you have a specialty cheese store in your area, ask them to help you out and recommend best choices. Above all, don't be afraid to experiment and don't be turned off by the smell!
To brighten up the cheese plate, include dried fruits, a selection of nuts or even fruit chutney. All go well with a variety of cheeses.
When serving the platter, provide guests with an assortment of crackers and crostini — a fancy word for toasted bread. A simple way to make crostini is to cut a baguette into ½ inch slices and toast them in an oven until they are a tasty golden brown. When the crostini is ready, remove them from the oven, brush them with olive oil and rub them with a fresh garlic clove. Serve and enjoy!
One word: divine. This recipe is a little bit harder, but so worth it. You can prepare the topping in advance and bake everything together once your guests arrive.
Preheat the oven to 400°C
Melt the butter in the saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until translucent. Add the brown sugar and continue cooking until the onions turn brown and begin to caramelize. Finally, add the chopped cranberries and balsamic vinegar and cook for just a few minutes longer.
Take a medium-sized wheel of brie and carefully remove almost all of the top rind, but leave a small edge so the cheese will keep its shape when baked. Place the cheese in an oven safe dish, cover with the onion and cranberry topping, loosely cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 – 30 minutes. Serve with your homemade crostini.
Serve your feast in style with bachelorette party-themed tableware and last, but not least, don't forget refreshments! Scroll down to PlanetBachelorette.com's guide to the perfect martini for thirst-quenching inspiration.
Having a theme for your Bachelorette party is a great way to make the party memorable. Since this is her last night out, it should be an unforgettable one! A creative and yummy theme for any Bachelorette party is to have a martini theme. Thanks in part to movies like James Bond and TV shows like Sex and the City, the popularity of the martini has exploded in recent years. As these tasty drinks have gotten more popular, the variety of recipes out there has gotten more diverse. So even the pickiest of drinkers can be sure of finding a recipe to their liking.
A major component of a martini-themed Bachelorette party is the drink itself! So first off, you have to determine which drinks you would like to have available at the Bachelorette party and request in the invitation, or some other means of communication, that each guest or group of guests bring their share of the necessary ingredients. Or if it's easier, request a set dollar amount from each guest so that you can buy the necessary ingredients. That way the costs are spread out among the guests and everyone can enjoy a variety of super tasty beverages. Also remember that you can offer virgin versions of the drink so you can accommodate all of your guests.
To complement the evening's theme, we suggest martini-based invitations, tableware, glassware, favours, etc, all available on our website.
- Don't cheap out on the liquor. The better the quality of the liquor, the better tasting your drinks will be. And we all want super tasty drinks at a Bachelorette party!
- If your recipe calls for vermouth, buy it only in small bottles (unless you've got a really big, rowdy group!) as vermouth will lose its strength and flavor once opened
- Use ice cubes rather than crushed ice since the ice cubes will chill the glass and drink quicker and crushed ice will turn the martini into a watery mush (we don't want that!)
- The best way to chill a martini glass is to fill it with ice and/or cold water before beginning to mix the martini. Once the drink has been mixed in a separate mixing glass, empty the martini glass of the ice and water, and strain the martini mixture into the martini glass
- Everyone who has seen a James Bond movie knows that he likes his martini's “shaken and not stirred”. If you want your martini cloudy, then shaken is the way to go. But if you want a clear martini, you need to stir the mixture
