Bachelorette party planning: Planning a Fun Bachelorette Party
Bachelorette parties used to conjure up images of brides letting loose one last time before they tie the knot. But these days, the all-girl gatherings are more likely to be about bonding than getting drunk and watching men take their clothes off.
Girls just want to enjoy each other
"A lot of people just want to spend quality time with their friends," says Cynthia Smuss, a wedding planner with Creative Occasions in Huntington, New York. "Getting married is a big step, and many brides prefer to spend special time with their closest friends and family members."
That doesn't mean that today's bridal party members don't want to have fun.
Rather, they are finding that tailoring the bachelorette party to a theme allows the group to socialize in a more creative atmosphere. Here are some examples of how brides-to-be and their closest friends and relatives are doing just that:
The Awesome '80s Prom
Take a journey back to the days of big hair and spandex through this reality theater production that takes place every Saturday in downtown Manhattan's Webster Hall.

"Sometimes you get groups who haven't seen each other in a while. They want a chance to catch up," says Helen Rennie, a culinary instructor who runs cooking classes at Helen's Kitchen in Belmont, Massachusetts.
"Some people want to use the pasta roller or make their own sushi, " says Rennie. Popular bachelorette party themes include a passion for Provence and a culinary guide to the Italian Riviera. Regardless of the theme, the cost is $70 per person.
Of course, there are lots of types of cooking parties. Some involve baking, and/or cake decorating. For example, Elisa Strauss, owner of Confetti Cakes, in New York City, offers two- to three-hour private parties for 8 to 10 people at $125 per person. As with many private food-related parties, Straus asks prospective party organizers who visit confetticakes.com if they have an idea or description of what they'd like to learn.
