So you’re looking for non-stupid, actually fun bachelorette party ideas? We’ve got everything from low-key gatherings to geeky Harry Potter nerdfests to goofball drunk Disney princesses!

How I crafted my perfect bachelorette party (including games, food, and more games!)

How I crafted my perfect-for-me bachelorette party (including games, food, and more games!)

My bachelorette party happened! No matter what type of bachelor/ette you are, there’s no reason you have to do anything traditional at your party. Make it your own, make it mad fun, and you’ll take singledom by the balls on your way out. Here’s how I (and my amazing friends!) crafted a hen night where we all had a blast, including rosé champagne, delicious grub, and lots of games (including our partner in party crime, Cads About Matrimony!)…

In “bachelorette parties we could never dream of having” news, bride Jana B. managed to craft a full-scale DANCE MUSIC VIDEO with her bridesmaids.

Are there bachelorette party games and activities that don’t involve bars?” (No shame in penis cakes or bars, of course. I mean, I personally love a good penis cake. And a good bar.)

Cads About Matrimony: A wedding game for people who hate wedding games

Our sponsor Cads About Matrimony (aka “A wedding game for people who hate love.” aka “The most efficient way to humiliate everyone in your wedding party.” aka “About 1/10 the price but at least 1/4 the fun of a stripper.”) is back with a special announcement.

Why a murder mystery rehearsal dinner is a KILLER idea for a wedding party

Why a murder mystery rehearsal dinner is a KILLER idea for a wedding party

We got this idea from one of the most epic Halloween weddings we’ve featured, Sharon and Kevin’s three-themed gothic wedding. We definitely got caught up in one of their ideas: a murder mystery rehearsal dinner! The best part of getting people into a themed party like this is that it’s going to give guests a reason to talk to one another and let their guards down. Apparently they even kept up the characters after the party! Let’s hear from Sharon on how it went down…
