Bachelorette Party Alternatives in Florida

This is Not Your Mother’s Hen Party

The bachelor party is the inspiration for the bachelorette party, once dubbed a hen party or a stagette (in Canada). The bridal luncheon is still popular, but the bachelorette party is taking center stage as the must-do, most fun, all-female event before saying “I Do.” Most often planned by members of the wedding party, this can also include close relatives and girlfriends. Make it fun enough, and wild horses won’t keep the invitees away.

If you can swing an overnight or two, the contemporary bachelorette party evolves into a refreshing combination of bride interests, slumber party and luncheon all rolled in one. Always ask for group rates on tours, lodging and activities, as many things are still cheaper by the dozen, so to speak.

Here are some bachelorette party alternatives ideas in Florida and abroad:

Bachelorette Party Alternatives in Florida - Zip lining

Jungle Jane

While Tarzan took center stage in the jungle, Jane could also swing the vines and walk the bridges without missing a beat or a step. For the bride with an outdoor sense of excitement, a day of zip lining and crossing the forest floor from the highest trees will make for a thrilling bachelorette adventure.
