Your big day is almost here and the girls are planning your big night out. Woo! But what if instead of punishing your liver, staying out past your bedtime and making memories for the sole purpose of not remembering them, what if, instead, you did something good for your body?
Bachelorette fitness parties are quickly becoming a trend, and it isn’t hard to see why. When are you more motivated than when pumping iron amongst your best gal pals? And when do you get the best workout possible if not during a barre class? If you answered those questions the way that I wanted you to, then you are going to love this bachelorette party fitness post!
7 Ways to Throw a Kick Ass Fitness Bachelorette Party
Recently Sixpence Events & Planning (that’s me!) teamed up with Haute Barre, a fitness studio at the shops at West End. I wanted to explain, with pretty pictures and a video, just what it can look like to have a healthy and good-for-you bachelorette party. Perhaps this is the nearing-thirty-sophisticated-and-so-mature (yeah, right) Josey speaking, but the appeal of having a night-to-forget is fading quickly. So, call your maid of honor and pick up your pencils, here are 7 ways to throw a kick ass fitness bachelorette party!
1. Barre class.
While it doesn’t have to be a barre class, barre is a great workout. Not only does it require no previous experience, but usually your hair-do stays intact. Attend a class that has a perky, fun, personable instructor (this means probably not a crossfit class). It’s always great too if you can book a private class, that way you can really be yourselves.
2. Healthy drinks, sans-alcohol = Mojito water.
Pick a health infused liquid, add chia seeds or bring Kombucha. Lots of lemons and limes, apple cider vinegar - all of those things are really great for your liver, your skin and your kidneys. Although, you should follow a recipe - otherwise no one will drink your brown sludge mix. They just won’t.
3. Temporary tattoos.
These are cute and super cheap. I used Teal Ash’s tatts but other adorable vendors like Love and Lion or whatever else you can find on Etsy. Just be sure to read the reviews - while you don’t want them to be permanent, you do want them to at least adhere for a few hours.
4. Matching tanks.
...and they can be used the day of your wedding as well.
Team Bride tops are SO CUTE! If you have women of every size and shape, go with a well-known shirt brand; or have a way to try them on before purchasing.
5. Nail wraps instead of manis.
Nail wraps are quick and easy and harmless; well comparatively so. They can go on top of existing nail polish. I propose to not go it alone - bring in a Jamberry or Mary Kay specialist so that they can do the work for you. Stacia Christenson is one such lovely lady who can apply like nobody’s business!
6. Matching jewelry from a local vendor.
Nordstrom is fine for finding jewelry but going with a local vendor means you’ll have more unique pieces. I suggest mix and matching jewelry pieces, that then can be worn for the wedding. Sara Goldfine’s jewelry line is perfectly on trend right now, check it out!
7. Good for you snacks: Mix your own trail mix, that way everyone can include their favorite items. Or splurge and include your favorite candy or pretzels; either way it’s mess free and easy to eat!
Easy right? Simple steps to having a wonderful time at your bachelorette party! Need more ideas? Like choreographing your own group dance or custom illustrated items to send out? I’m always available!
