For anyone planning a bachelorette party for a remotely creative group of ladies or an artistically inclined bride-to-be, we love the idea of doing away with the debauchery of endless drinking and instead celebrating her upcoming nuptials with beautifully creative pursuits. Engaging, completely unexpected, practical, fun and more imaginative than dancing men scantily clothed, we’re secretly hoping to be invited to just such a celebration ourselves!
For a foodie bride why not consider a cake making and decorating class…any afternoon that ends with champagne and slices of a beautiful cake you've had the pleasure of making yourself sounds pretty dreamy to us. Plus, it’s inclusive (& apropriate!) for any female relatives like mums and grandmas, younger cousins and aunts invited along. Alternatively, a floral styling workshop is a sensory dream and a beautifully perfumed way to while away an afternoon, ending in a creative mess of petals and new found skills.
The artistically inclined may love something tactile and crafty such as shibori dying, weaving or macrame…ancient skills re-imagined in a fun setting led by modern women making textile magic. And for the tactile goodness of paper, consider a calligraphy or watercolour workshop…you might like to each pen a special note or letter of love and well wishes to the beautiful bride to be, with the skills honed on the day itself.
Whichever creative pursuit you opt for, be sure to weave in a delicious meal to finish, some champagne throughout and a designated photographer to document all the fun (which we love to the idea of having curated into an album for the bride to keep afterwards!).
