Sometimes we could all use a break from reality. This is especially true while in the midst of gearing up for your big day. Fast forward to your bachelorette party— a night filled with laughs and excitement. Not just any old party will suffice. No, yours needs to be exquisite, unique, sans humdrum card games and trail mix. One of a kind —like you. And because we love you, our experts at Utah Bride & Groom have crafted a list of bachelorette party themes and ideas for whatever adventuring you’re into…thank us later, party first
1. The Nature Loving Bride
For the outdoorsy bride who loves backpacking, glamping or “getting lost” atop a mountain. Luckily for us, Utah is home to a vast array of hiking trails. Imagine spending your last day of freedom fly fishing while enjoying a picnic near a river, surrounded by your closest gal pals. Don’t forget to bring the trail mix.
2. The Boho Bride
Who doesn’t love a festival or two? Fortunately, there are a number of festivals that take place at different times throughout the year. For a September bachelorette party, stroll through downtown Salt Lake City with freshly baked baklava during Salt Lake’s Greek Festival. Party in January — catch a film and try spotting your favorite celebs at the Sundance Film Festival.
3. The Artsy Bride
And for those who prefer the artsy side of life, whirl on over to the Capitol Theater for one of their spectacular shows. Feeling like a lighthearted day of creating with the girls, try a cooking or pottery class.
4. The Overworked Bride
With all the stressors of everyday life, there’s always room for rejuvenating self care. For the overworked bride, some good old fashioned R & R is in order. Treat yourselves to a Glamping Yoga Retreat in St. George or a day at the Grand Spa.
Additional ideas & links: The Visit Utah website encompasses a wonderful and extensive list of local spas and retreats.
5. The Hipster Bride
For the avant-garde bride-to-be, escape zombies at Virtualities at the Gateway Mall with one of their virtual reality parties — or hone in on your hand to hand combat techniques and road trip it to Las Vegas’ Stiletto Spy school.
