Bachelor & Bachelorette Party Ideas

Planning a bachelor or bachelorette party? Whether your future groom or bride is adventurous or more on the laid back side, we have ideas for you that are sure to be a night (or a weekend) to remember!

For the Adventure Lovers

Nothing screams “adventure” quite like bungee jumping! This is an activity that is sure to be an unforgettable time for your bachelor or bachelorette party.

In the same line of thought, kayaking, zip lining, rock climbing or a rafting are other great ways to add adventure to your bachelor/bachelorette party! You can even make a weekend getaway of it!


Dance Parties!

Pole dancing has become a great new way for people to get down and let loose! Many bachelorette packages are now offered by dance companies. Not interested in pole dancing? You might be interested in a salsa, belly dancing or burlesque classes!

Low-Key Fun

Dinner with a Twist

If your bride or groom is more on the introverted side of things, a simple dinner with friends is sure to be a fun time. To spice things up, why not add a little mystery and organise a murder mystery dinner!

Tea Time

Chateau Laurier in Ottawa offers a great High Tea experience for those who are looking for an elegant afternoon of tea, sandwiches and desserts!

Paint Nite


Paint Nite has become a popular way to spend an evening with friends. If you haven’t heard of it, Paint Nite is a company where you book an evening with an artist who teaches you, step by step, how to do a painting. At the end of the night, everyone goes home with their very own masterpiece!

Party on a Budget!

Slumber Party

Who says you need to spend a fortune on your party?! Old school slumber parties with the future bride and  her bridesmaids is an oldie, but a goodie! Put your PJ’s on, pop in your favourite movie, make DIY projects, play games, make some drinks and enjoy the party!

Scavenger Hunt

Planning a scavenger hunt for your bachelor or bachelorette is another way to have a great time on a budget. Split into teams, solve riddles and wear funky clothes to make it even more of an unforgettable time for your bride and fellow bridesmaids! Don’t forget to take lots of pictures!

For the Nature Lovers

Horseback riding tours are offered at most barns and equestrian schools. Book an outdoor tour for you and your friends and enjoy what nature has to offer while riding in the wilderness!
