Alternative Ideas for Bridal Showers, Gals Gatherings, & Get Togethers


So, you’re in charge of planning a bridal shower, a bachelorette party, or a special get-together with your gal pals? Whatever the reason to celebrate, why not take the opportunity to plan something a little unusual, something they’ll truly remember forever? We gathered a few unconventional ideas that make for some festivities that are a little fun, funny, and/or funky.

Ziplining Adventure

Get a little physical in the great outdoors with the adrenaline-fueled fun of ziplining! Take your sense of adventure to new heights as you and your fearless friends soar through the treetops. Afterwards, throw a picnic or a cookout at a nearby cabin or campsite.

You’ll Need Some Active Gear to Get You Moving:

Glam on the Run Sneaker in Magenta $79.99
Jog Your Melody Athletic Leggings $44.99
Sprints and Espressos Lounge Top $59.99
Hydrated and Mighty Water Bottle in Positivity $17.99

Seedling Swap or Flower Potluck

This is not your garden-variety garden party. Ask your friends to each bring bunches of flowers of their choosing, separate them by type, get schooled on some flower arranging tips, then let everyone create their own unique bouquets. You could also make terrariums with each invitee bringing different elements (like charcoal, moss, stones, succulents) or ask everyone to bring clippings from their own plants to trade, take home, and add to their growing gardens.

Floral fashion is all abloom this season:

Garden Me Watch $124.99
Mature Portraiture Dress $129.99
Floral of the Story Flower Crown $19.99
Everlasting Aloha Dress in Vibrant Blooms $139.99

Ladies’ Llama Walk

Come. On. Now. Who wouldn’t want to hang out with a pack of alpacas or some lovable llamas for a day? Visit a farm or ranch that raises these personality-packed animals and go on a trek with them along a tranquil trail. You and your friends are guaranteed to giggle all the way. Finish off the day with refreshments and some silly stories to share.

We gotta lotta llama stuff, by the way:

Boho Se Llama? Tank Top $24.99
Llama Baby, Light My Fire Votive Holder $14.99
Alpaca a Punch Mug $14.99
Word to Your Llama Socks $9.99
