2. Host a Barbie (or other Pop Culture) Theme Party
Make your bachelorette party the celebration of the year by giving it an of-the-moment theme. Some popular theme options for 2023 include Barbie, Y2K, and Beyonce-inspired disco cowgirl, but you can opt for a theme that best reflects your group’s interests.

If you opt for a particularly strenuous activity, make sure to check in with your guests ahead of time and ensure that everyone feels comfortable.
5. Enjoy Some Live Music
Taking in a live concert is a great way to make your celebration feel more memorable, particularly if you and your friends are music lovers. There are so many ways to do this - you could go all out with a music festival, explore small local venues, or even dress up for a sophisticated night at the symphony. A karaoke night is also a fun way to bond over music.
6. Tour the Local Winery, Brewery, or Distillery
Delicious drinks are a staple of any bachelorette party. By taking a tour of your favorite winery, brewery, or distillery, you’ll get a first-hand look at how your favorite beverages are made while socializing with your friends. Many of these establishments also offer delicious food options. The Olde House sits on the downtown strip of Wylie, TX where a popular local winery offers options for girl's nights to keep you entertained for hours.
7. Get Creative with an Art Class
Another fun and easy group activity for your bachelorette party is taking an art class together. Whether it’s pottery, painting, candle making, or something else entirely, making art gives your whole group a chance to show off their creativity and take home a beautiful souvenir as well. To make things even more fun, look for an art class that lets you enjoy your favorite drinks while creating.
8. Tap Into Your Mystical Side with Tarot Readings
If your friend group enjoys the spiritual side of life, consider bringing a bit of magic to your bachelorette party with tarot readings. You can hire a local tarot professional, or take a more informal approach and read each other’s tarot. Astrology-themed activities make a great complement to the tarot readings. Additionally, you can give each guest custom tarot decks as a souvenir.
9. Host a Game Night
Game nights are an engaging and affordable activity that work well for any bachelorette party. There are many different types of games you can incorporate into your celebration - many people enjoy drinking games for bachelorette parties, but there are plenty of other options available if you don’t want to focus on alcohol. Classic board games are a fun and easy option, or you can test your relationship with the bride-to-be with a fun quiz.
