A friend of mine is in charge of planning a bachelorette party for a friend of hers and was lamenting on Facebook the other day that she doesn’t know what to plan. I suggested the party-planning strategy that my maid-of-honor seemed to take, i.e. make the bride make as many bad decisions as possible until she regrets knowing you. But when I really thought about it, I realized that bachelorette parties are some of my least favorite parties to plan or even attend. I get into them when I’m there but they are just so unoriginal!

Today, I thought I’d feature some Etsy bachelorette party favors that class up one of the most trashy parties we’ve invented as a culture.

I found a couple cute sets of drink markers. If you’re more of the elegant wine-drinker type, there’s some cute personalized wine charms or  if you’re more of a cocktail crowd, personalized bachelorette tumblers to carry your drinks all night. My favorite is the mustache stirer/drink markers. They’re great because they totally double as a disguise … which may feel important to you at some point in the evening.

I’m the grumpiest about the team-building costumes associated with bachelorette parties, but I think with a vintage veil maybe you wouldn’t look so much like you just fell out of an adult store. I also like the shoe stickers. They’re kind of silly, right? But, they’re hidden and you’ll all still know they’re there. Plus, those shoes can be marked for life. I still remember that my bachelorette party shoes from my party are uncomfortable but I don’t remember what pair I wore. The hidden bikini bottoms are also nice. It is for some reason very important to unify your party-goers, but maybe we can avoid doing that with pink sashes or — the worst — matching professionally printed t-shirts.

Of course, you don’t want to forget the bride in all of this and Etsy is full of beautiful, unique vintage lingerie for a vartiety of body types. The cute lingerie-printed bags are great gift wrap for other little bridal gifts.

And no party would be complete without thinking about the next day: custom made Spanish-tile pattern pocket mirrors, tags for your “hair of the dog” hangover cure kits, and personalized “squeaky clean alibi” soap.
