Having decided to have one, the next step is knowing How To Organize A Camping Bachelorette Party…

By Amanda Moore

Camping bachelorette parties are a fun new twist to the bride’s traditional last hurrah before she walks down the aisle. At this point, you should be 110% positive that a camping bachelorette party is right for you. We know, it’s exciting, but let’s say that this is the first camping bachelorette party that you’ve been tasked to plan and execute. If this job seems intimidating and insurmountable, don’t worry! We’ve got all the steps you could possibly need to throw the most memorable camping bachelorette party.

Read on to discover How To Organize A Camping Bachelorette Party.  These steps can be done by anybody, whether you’re the bride’s family, friend, or if you’re the bride herself.

 

Step one: Bridal Party Proposals

This is where the bridal party comes in. We’re talking about who the bride wants to join her at the altar on her special day. This is actually a great opportunity to incorporate camping-themed bridesmaid proposals. Don’t be afraid to get creative either; what do you want the camping party to be called? Camp I Do? Camp [Bride’s name]? How do you want to ask your friends and family?

A good suggestion would be a gift box containing items like hot chocolate, bubbly, a personalized mug, facemasks, along with the invitation. (Maybe try throwing in an actual sleeping bag to let the party know that they’ll be going camping.) Whatever you do plan, a good rule of thumb is to distribute these invitations anywhere from eight months to a year before the event actually happens.

 

Step two: When and Where

How To Organize A Camping Bachelorette Party 3

 

You need to decide on a place to have the bridal party, and for this particular step, there are three main details that you need to keep in mind: when you’re having the party, the actual location of the party, and the budget. Typically, when one is planning a bachelorette party, people go for dates that aren’t too close or too far from the wedding date. The point is to get everybody excited for the event, without adding stress due to overbooking.

Camping bachelorette parties can save a lot of money, but that’s only if you aren’t planning on balling out and going full glam with the details. Keep the spending budget in mind when you’re arranging everything—if the intentions are to have a unique and cost-effective bachelorette party, then remember how much money is actually allotted to the party.

Lastly, your location can basically set the mood for the party, so it’s important to make sure it’s a place that is safe, accessible to everyone and has weather that will actually allow for a camping party. Some places people try out are actual campgrounds, or little spots up in the mountains (though it might be a little difficult to get there if you don’t have a truck), or even camping spots down by the beach. You could even camp in your backyard! It all depends on what kind of camping vibe you’re going for.

Here’s a list of different campgrounds across the US.

 

Step three: Get prepared

Okay, so you’ve issued out the invitations, established the when and the where, and now we need to prepare. Remember that it’s not just a party—you’re actually camping, so you’re going to need more than your tent and sleeping bag.

One thing to keep in mind is comfort. Try to include a sleeping bag, pillows, air mattress or even a pad to give you more comfort when camping in a tent. Safety is also one of the most important parts of camping. So, get prepared with flashlights and first aid supplies.

Another thing to make sure you double check when packing is the equipment. This will help you avoid one less possible frustration by being prepared with outdoor clothing, chairs, cooking utensils, bug spray, and supplies for your planned activities.

Of course, there’s a lot more that goes into a camping trip, but that’s just to set up part of your campsite. Here’s a more extensive list.

 

Step four: Plan activities

Part of your responsibilities when organizing a camping trip is planning out safe and entertaining activities for everyone to enjoy. Try checking out these suggestions to add to your itinerary:

  • Mani-pedis
  • DIY Facemasks
  • Making s’mores around a campfire
  • Water sports like water skiing and canoeing (if there is a lake nearby)
  • Trail mix bars
  • Hot chocolate (and possibly some music) by the campfire at night

 

Step five: Have fun

 

Now that the other four steps are complete, the only thing that’s left to do is to have fun. Camping bachelorette parties are unique and unconventional, but they can also provide the bride with plenty of memories that she won’t soon forget. Just remember to have fun and stay safe, and if you follow these steps, you’ll soon have a party of happy campers on your hands.

      Neely, thank you for your comment. I am happy you like the idea and although you are not into camping yourself. This can also be done with “glamping” or just camping indoors. The possibilities are endless and there is so much room for fun ideas.

    This would be a fun idea, and in my opinion, better than the traditional bachelorette party. It’s nice to spend some quality time with friends, and camping is perfect.

      Diana, thank you for the comment. I like to think of this idea as a sleepover outdoors. But if you don’t love the outdoors glamping or an indoors sleepover is an amazing idea. There is still so much room for fun memories and great bonding time.

    Having a bachelorette while camping sounds like a lot of fun. I never had one because in my country of origin there were no bachelorettes parties. I first learned about them when I moved to the U.S. It’s too late now to have such a party, but I would have loved to have one.

    Camping Bachelorette Party is such a fab idea! You have given some great tips on the same. I like that you have included some activities in the plan. Activities sure make things more lively and help strengthen inter personal bonds. I think is unconventional idea is more valuable than the regular Bachelorette parties.

    Okay, so for some reason that title of the post made me think about the movie The Descent. Have you seen it? On a more serious note, it’s such a great way to bond with friends and just be away from the city and in nature. Great idea and top tips.

    What a great idea for a bachelorette party. It would certainly take a lot of planning in advance. I love the idea of drinking hot chocolate around the campfire and the odd glass of wine thrown in as well. I bet the boys would love to do something like this as well.

    This was such a fun post! My bachelorette party is behind me, but I would personally love to experience one in the great outdoors! Your tips and suggestions could be used to help plan a girls camping trip too (regardless of the occasion), which I love. Making smores and drinking hot chocolate by the campfire are two activities that are musts for me on any camping trip! 🙂
