12 bachelorette party invite ideas guaranteed get the party started
Gather up your girls, it’s time to plan the bachelorette party! Throwing a bachelorette party is a long-standing tradition in the pre-wedding process. It’s a time when the bride-to-be can let her hair down and celebrate her upcoming big day with her closest friends before tying the knot. This event, which can be as small as a boozy brunch or as big as a long destination weekend away, is typically organized by the maid-of-honor, alongside the other bridesmaids in the wedding party, or perhaps a close friend of the bride.
After deciding the theme and determining when to host the bachelorette party, one of the most important steps when planning a great bachelorette party is choosing and sending out the invites. The invitations should not only introduce the theme of the occasion, but should also be a reflection of the bride’s personality. You’ll want to choose a fun-loving invitation design, select the right wording, and include all of the important details.
If you don’t have the logistics finalized, consider sending a bachelorette party save the date card so guests can mark it on their calendar and start getting excited about the official invitation to come. You’ll also need to compile the guest list, which typically includes the bride’s best friends, the ladies in the wedding party, close family members, and favorite colleagues. Make sure you check in with the bride before finalizing your list to make sure you haven’t missed anyone, or invited someone she’d prefer to leave off. Better safe than sorry!

What to include on a bachelorette party invitation
There are several key details to include on your bachelorette party invitation so that all the guests are well-informed. Some of the most important elements of a great bachelorette party invitation are the following:
- The date (or dates) of the event
- What time the event starts, and, if applicable, when it’s expected to end. If the festivities are over a multi-day trip, communicate the dates of the getaway and what to expect each day.
- The location
- If there’s a dress code for the party, or for different festivities of a long weekend away
- The RSVP deadline
- Specify if gifts are required, encouraged, or not necessary
- Make sure the theme of the bachelorette party is clear
- Include what kind of activities are set to take place and how much they will cost the attendees
Many bachelorette parties take place out of town at hot spots like Las Vegas or Cabo San Lucas. If this is the case, you will want to include details on hotel accommodations, best flight options, transportation, the cost of the trip, and more. With Paperless Post, you can use Blocks to provide these details on your bachelorette party invitation without cluttering up the design. You can also ask your guests questions on dietary preferences, ideas for bachelorette party games, clothing sizes (say, for matching tees), or determining everyone’s budget and easily collect their answers when they RSVP.
As for when to send bachelorette party invitations, it’s recommended at least one month in advance for local celebrations and closer to three months in advance for destination celebrations.

Bachelorette parties can have all kinds of different themes, from sassy and sexy to fancy and formal, so your wording should reflect the vibe you’re hoping to achieve. Here are some ideas for bachelorette invitation wording.
When writing a bachelorette party invitation, don’t shy away from humor. Some great headline examples for funny bachelorette party invitation wording include:
- “What happens at the bachelorette party, stays at the bachelorette party”
- “Let’s get bach sh*t crazy!”
- “Hangovers are temporary, girlfriends are forever.”

Who doesn’t love a good pun? There are many great ways to incorporate puns into your bachelorette party invitations, including these:
- “Get ready for the bride of your life!”
- “Put a fling on it!”
- “Bride or die.”
- “This is nacho usual bachelorette—let’s fiesta!”
Just like puns, cheeky rhymes are always a hit when it comes to invitations. Some great bachelorette party invitation rhymes include:
- “Kiss the miss goodbye!”
- “She’s tying the knot—buy her a shot.”
- “Party with the bride before the knot gets tied!”
- “Before she says I do, let’s have a drink or two!”

Set a festive, celebratory tone for a night of partying, and opt for headers like:
- “Cheers to the future Mrs!”
- “OMG, she’s getting married!”
- “Get ready—it’s time for a bachelorette bash!”
- “Say ‘I do’ to party time!”
Sometimes bachelorette party invitations don’t need to be over the top—simple is fun and effective as well. Try concise wording like:
- “Cheers to the bride”
- “Bach bash alert”
- “Let’s celebrate our girl”
- “Bride squad unite”
For a more formal event, keep invitation wording on the more traditional side, like:
- “You’re cordially invited to celebrate the future Mrs. [Name]”
- “A black dress affair…”
- “Please join us to celebrate the soon-to-be Mrs. [Name]”
- “You’re invited to the bachelorette event of the season”
