What Is A Bachelorette Party?
You may know it is a hen night or a bachelorette party – but however you know it, it’s the same kind of celebration. It’s a party that’s held for the bride-to-be, to celebrate the start of her new adventure…and mourn the end of her singledom! Traditionally, the event occurs in the evening and female guests are the only guests permitted. However, some couples choose to have a joint bachelor and bachelorette party or to invite men and women to the party.
Alcohol-Free Bachelorette Party Ideas For Pregnant Bride
There’s a range of ideas to choose from, which don’t need to involve any alcohol at all. You can choose to put a ban on alcohol, make up some mocktails, or let some guests drink alcohol if they wish. Let’s take a look at some of our top picks.
- Spa Day. Whether this be at a local spa, or from the comfort of your own home, it’s probably exactly what she needs right now. She can take some time to get her nails done, have a massage, have a face mask, and most importantly – catch up with her girlfriends!
- Beach Day. Depending on where you are in the world, a trip to the beach could be welcome. Make up some mocktails, get yourself into a swimsuit, and have a relaxing day on the beach with your nearest and dearest.
- Arts and Crafts. If you have an artsy bride, why not try something creative? Making floral crowns, flower arranging, painting, pottery – you’ll likely make some great memories doing an activity together.
- Slumber Party. This is my favorite option. Take yourself back to your high school days, get some matching PJs, and most importantly…some alcohol-free spirits! Lyre has an incredible range of alcohol-free drinks, including gin, amaretto, cocktails, rum, wine – you name it, they’ve got it. Create your own wedding mocktails and play some games together.

- Make her some mocktails using an alcohol-free store like Lyre. She’ll feel as though thought and care has gone into the planning of her party
- Don’t skimp on the sexiness! She won’t always be pregnant, so still splash out on sexy lingerie to make her feel like the queen she is
- Check-in on her. Being pregnant is hard work! If she needs a break or an early night – give her the freedom to do so
Games To Play With A Pregnant Bride-To-Be
Most games don’t require you to drink/be drunk, and if they do – just substitute the drinking for a dare, or eat food that’s particularly gross! There are ways around not being able to drink alcohol, and everyone still having the best time.
