All the single ladies!!! Put your hands up... for an AWESOME bachelorette party!

Posted By Victoria WoW July 24th, 2013

More than ever before modern brides are focusing on every aspect of "The Big Picture". Her wedding celebrations don't simply begin the morning she wakes up to say "I do." They begin the moment he pulls out the ring and she says "I will."

With so many details that need to be researched, compared, committed to, and funded over the following months, this can all add up to a lot of pressure.

The one detail that she shouldn't have to worry about is her bachelorette party.

This event is just for her: to toast her singlehood, to celebrate her upcoming marriage, to spend time with her best girlfriends, and to blow off some steam and take a break from the demands of wedding planning.

But not every bride's idea of a bachelorette party is downing endless shots of tequila while a Chippendale dancer gyrates to the rhythm of hoots and she-wolf howls (if that IS your ideal bash, then all the power to you, sister!!). The point is: there are many possibilities to choose from that can more accurately reflect the bride's personality and passions.

As wedding industry experts, we are called upon to offer suggestions for every aspect of wedding celebrations and the events leading up to the big day. Women of Weddings has compiled a list of ideas for bachelorette fetes that you can share with brides and her bridal party.

In addition to your handy list of party themes, we are also revealing how our very own WoW Showcase Sponsors from the last 6-months are amongst the top resources in Victoria to bring these bashes to life.

WoW is celebrating a party of our very own: It's our 6-month Anniversary!!! Over the last half year, it has been such a pleasure to get to know all of you better, to see you showcase your talents, to learn the most useful tips from your experiences, and to share in the growth we continue to build for all our businesses. We are honoured to be a part of this amazing industry. A HUGE THANKS goes out to all members of our WoW Community: our Members, our Showcase Sponsors, and our WoW Team. We really are the BEST the city has to offer!

All the single ladies!!! Put your hands up... for an AWESOME bachelorette party!

In no particular order, here is WoW's most coveted list of the best bachelorette party ideas. Our emphasis is to keep things local to our Victoria area, and to recognize the WoW Members who have sponsored our events over the last six months. 

For bridal parties that are stuck on ideas, suggest that they consult with WoW's Event Planners like Magical Moments or Details, who would be thrilled to share their ideas, like these ones:

The Glamour Girls

The Outsiders

  • For the adventurous types, "Glamping" is a perfect option. Glam camping requires nothing to be sacrificed even in the great outdoors, especially the food. So recommend that the girls call on Taste West Coast Catering or Truffles Catering to supply their gourmet eats.
  • Get the adrenaline pumping with a day of local adventure activity like ziplining, bungee jumping, or stand-up paddleboarding.
  • Or for the more relaxed outsiders, get the girls to don the sunscreen and host a pool party. Perhaps the pools at The Inn at Laurel Point, or BW Premier Prestige Oceanfront Resort will suit the bill?



The Foodies 

  • Southern Vancouver Island is home to many artisan wineries. Suggest a wine tasting tour, and leave the driving to LA Limos.
  • A good old-fashioned picnic could be a lovely daytime option, and Kildara Farms by Fresh View Events is the perfect spot. 
  • Work on the pinky lift and host an afternoon tea party. Bridal parties can rent their nostalgic supplies from Victoria Vintage China Rentals to set the scene.
  • Gather the girls for a cooking class. Good For You Gourmet may be the perfect fit for an in-home cooking lesson.
  • Or for the wanna-be Ace Of Cakes competitors, book a cake decorating class with Creating Occasions.


The Sex Kittens

  • For the ladies wanting to channel their inner fire, there are many tools in the toybox. Recommend that the bridal party get together for a sex toy or lingerie party. 
  • Or hire a teacher to show the girls some sexy moves. Choose from burlesque, pole dancing or belly dancing lessons. We're not sure the Respighi String Quartet would provide the ideal soundtrack. They may be best left for the wedding day! 

The Insiders

  • Nothing says "girls night" like a classic slumber party. To make the party a little more upscale, book a few rooms at the Four Points by Sheraton. Make it an 80s movie night, hold a séance, or hire a psychic to predict the future.
  • For the crafty-types, host a knitting or quilting party to create something memorable for the bride. Or how about a flower arranging class? Perhaps WoW's fantastic florists Tara McHugh Flora or A Sea of Bloom could lead the group.
  • Sewing seems to be a lost art, but perhaps Elise Tonn Designs can rekindle interest for the bridal party with customized sewing lessons.

And of course, for any supplies for the perfect bachelorette party, the girls can stock up at Gala-Van Party Shop or Avenue Weddings.  And if the party wants to capture every moment of the festivities, they can call on Persona Video. We can't guarantee that whatever happens won't end up as a viral video!

So there you have it. Some creative ideas to celebrate The Bride with WoW's Showcase Sponsor Team.

AND...we will see you soon for a celebration of our very own!!
