Whether you are heading out for a relaxing spa weekend in Napa or hitting the clubs in Vegas, TGI is here to give you party essentials to plan the perfect bachelorette party. If you need more inspo, check out last years post on my own Miami Bachelorette weekend.

The “Oh Shit Kit”

Every smart party planner knows that the day after is never fun. These “Oh Shit” hangover kits are cute and key to a long weekend. Have a fun bag stuffed with your favorite hangover cures for each of the guests.

*TGI Suggestions: Advil, Tic Tacs, Wisps, Eye Drops, Mini water bottles, Hangover Joes Hangover Shots

“To Have and To Hold- Your Hair Back” Hair Ties

Bachelorette Hair Ties

 

If the party is a success, majority of you will need to tie your hair up at some point (either due to dancing the night away or because the bride is praying to the porcelain god). Either way, these hair ties are a cute, functional, and customizable.

“Mini Crown” For the Bride-To-Be

It’s important for the bride to stand out but if she’s not so much the fake veil type, these mini crowns are perfect. Understated yet just sparkly enough to catch everyone’s eye.

Personalized Quizzes

No bachelorette party would be complete without a couple of games. Create a custom quiz that tests the guests’ knowledge of the special couple. Start the night off by handing each guest one of these and see who knows the bride best.

Custom Tanks

For a bachelorette weekend, matching tank tops are a great keepsake. Let the jokes on each top reflect each guest and reminisce on old memories while also creating new ones.

Temporary Tattoos

Gift each guest one of these funky custom tattoos. They may actually end up being a lifesaver if one of the bridesmaids ends up being a tad over-served…

“Kisses From Your Bitches”

At the end of the weekend, have each girl kiss a canvas. Once you are home get it framed and then give it to the bride. We promise every bride will be thrilled to receive this personal and sentimental keepsake that commemorates her “last” wild weekend.

TGI Tip: Try to get each girl to wear a different shade of lipstick. The multiple shades will make for fun and colorful home décor.

Cash Gifts on a Wedding Registry? The Growing Trend of Asking For What You ACTUALLY Want!

Unique Registries

Guest Post By Nancy Lee, President of MyRegistry.com

So… you’ve lived with your boyfriend for more years than you can count. Naturally, you’ve accumulated “stuff”, lots of “stuff” for your home, for your pets, and for everything else that you do together. But now, with a wedding on the way and everyone asking you about your registry, you find yourself in a dilemma because you really do not want any more “stuff”. This is not to say that there aren’t plenty of things that you would like to have, they just aren’t the typical items found at a department store and easily placed on a gift registry. Or are they?

4 DIY Bridal Shower Gifts We Heart from Pinterest

Corn-hole Wedding Set: The perfect gift to give to a bride right before an outdoor wedding celebration!

 

Confetti Balloon: Okay, so giving money isn’t always ideal. But for the girl on the go this may be your only option. Give cash in a fun and innovative way by filling a giant balloon with helium, confetti, and cash. Have the bride pop it open and she’ll be “showered” with confetti!

 

 

Bridal Spoons: Why not personalize a boring set of wooden cooking spoons by decorating them with a bride and a groom? Perfect for an artsy person ready to take on a DIY challenge!

 

 

Dinner For Two: Did your bride register for a colander? Why not pair it with a few smaller gifts with a similar theme. Try an italian colander bundle! Include a bottle of wine, extra virgin olive oil, handmade pasta, and some delicious sauce to top off the meal!
