I am planning a bachelorette party and a wedding shower for my sister-in-law. Of course, it is a spur of the moment decision to do this. Both parties are in the next 3 weeks. I need all the ideas I can get! I have already sent out the invitations and I am in hurry to get things done! If any of ya'll have anything that could help me I would love to hear it!

My daughters planned a bachelorette party for the third daughter that began with a lingerie party. The theme of the party was retro, kind of Austin Powers looking stuff, very fun. They played games like seeing who knew the most about the couple. They all had questions that they wrote down the answers to on a sheet of paper. The questions pertained to the couple, like where did they meet?, how long before they said they loved each other, etc. Then they had a bridal scavenger hunt. they went around the neighborhood and then raced around in their cars and collected things like wedding bubbles, a rose, napkin from a restaurant, etc. Then they had a few drinks and went to a local place that was having an 80's retro night. The bride had to wear a veil that they had gotten for her. It was actually one that they had fashioned themselves from a little girl's tiara and some netting. After that they all spent the night at an apartment together.
The night before my sister-in-law got married, we threw her a bachelorette party. We are all fairly conservative, but also strongly believe that "what goes on in the bedroom should be fun!"....so we dressed her with a fake veil, a huge flashing ring, and a bachelorette sash and sent her around town to have pictures taken with random people. While she was out doing that with her best friend from high school and some cousins not seen for a long time, I was back at my house welcoming guests. I had strung up a clothesline in my living room, and every guest brought at least one pair of "interesting and unique underwear", she'll have enough lingerie to last for the first 3 years of her marriage! We also played a game called "pin the bow tie on the bachelor" that I found at party city. Hope this helps!
Our younger dd was married on Father's Day. The day before was spent at a salon/spa where we all got manicures, pedicures, massages and ate wonderful, healthy food all day. It finished up with a personal shower. The next day we got our hair done before the wedding. Great time, healthy and less stress for all.

Consider holding a lingerie party for your bachelorette. It is a cool theme and the presents can be lingerie oriented. A lingerie party can be anything from inviting a lingerie boutique representative to come and display the newest lingerie to organizing everything yourself. Here is a website about lingerie parties: http://www.lingerie-parties.info/

How about having a spa party? You can kill two birds with one stone. First, you can let the bride-to-be ease some of her stress and have a relaxing time. Secondly, you and the rest of the guests can have a good time of bonding. You can do it at the comfort of your home or if you have the budget, go to a professional spa at a nearby resort.
