How To Throw A Fit Bachelorette Party
August has arrived! Are you planning a bachelorette party for the bride-to-be and an end of summer getaway? I have some tips so you have a memorable celebration with some fitstyle!
For the All Natural Bride:
Hire a yoga instructor to host a private class or have a masseuse come to the host's house. Both are great options to start the celebration on a relaxed note.
Set up stations where guests can make massage oils and scented bath salts from scratch. Head to Pinterest for lot's of ideas, including cute ways to decorate the stations and personalize them for the bride-to-be.
Have all the attendees bring a raw food dish made from a vegetable or fruit that has "aphrodisiac" benefits, along with the recipe, so you can have them for future reference. You could also collect the recipes for the bride-to-be and start a recipe book for her and her future hubby.
As a game, have attendees write down what they think the 'sexy' benefit is and read them aloud. There is a lot of fun to be had with this game!

For the Naughty but Nice Bride:
Get moving with a group pole dancing or striptease class. Fun + fitness = a win for a bachelorette party! Plus, you may be able to take some of the moves you learn outside the "classroom"!
After your sexy workout, take the group to a fondue restaurant and order the dark chocolate option, which has health benefits for your heart, too. It's also a great way to provide a variety of options that can accommodate food allergies, sensitivities or diets.
If you're eating out, go for a high top table where you can all stand up around the pot to eat together - you burn more calories standing than sitting!
Here is an idea for a DIY fondue party if you want to keep the party going at the maid of honor or a bridesmaid's home!
For the Thrill-seeker Bride:
Head to an indoor climbing gym. The instructor can work with people at all levels of experience, and this is certainly a full body workout.
If you really want to get down and dirty, have a paintball party! And make a special group trip to the consignment store to find the ugliest wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses for the occasion.
Then follow this with a culinary adventure - assign everyone an extreme ingredient, from something hot, like jalapeños, to something unusual, like kumquats, and have everyone make a dessert using that ingredient.
For dessert, find a chocolatier who uses crazy ingredients and have people guess what's inside. You can add on a fun prize to be won at the end or turn it into a blindfold guessing tasting game.
