Planning a bachelorette party can be stressful and overwhelming. You want to pick a destination, choose activities and restaurants, bring souvenirs back for your friends and family, find transportation for everyone, etc. It’s easy to get carried away with all of this planning and forget about one very important thing: how your guests are going to stay safe during the festivities!
When assembling a bachelorette survival kit, there are several factors to consider. These factors include the ingredients and personalization options. Choosing the right ingredients can make the survival kit more personalized and effective. Paper bags are a good option for a bachelorette survival kit. They can be easily personalized with the names and dates of the bridesmaids.
So here are some things that every good bachelorette party survival kit should include:
Essential Elements of A Bachelorette Survival Kit
Creating a bachelorette survival kit doesn’t have to be a stressful project! The key is to keep it simple and include only the items necessary for the night. Some items you may want to include are makeup remover wipes, hair ties, and lip gloss.
Bachelorette parties are typically themed and have a high amount of alcohol, so it’s important to ensure that you have enough supplies for your party guests. A bachelorette survival kit will ensure that everyone is safe and happy and keep everyone well-coordinated and entertained. You can even customize the kit according to your tastes.
While a bachelorette party is a fun, wild night, it can get out of control. A bachelorette survival kit will ease the transition back into the world after a night of drinking and partying. You can include pain relievers, green juice, and an eye mask. It’s also a good idea to have a few other items, including a compact, earring backs, and Shemergency tape.
To make a bachelorette survival kit, you’ll need:
- A reusable bag (or a few small portable bags) to keep everything together. If you’re packing multiple kits, consider using one bag per location.
- A first-aid kit with the essentials like Band-Aids and pain reliever.
- A few items that can help you sleep more comfortably, like earplugs and eye masks. It’s going to be noisy and bright!
- Copies of travel documents—including passports—for each lady in your party (only if needed). The bride should also bring her ID on the plane as well as copies of any other important documents she needs for travel like car rental agreements or hotel confirmations.
Hand sanitizer is a must on a bachelorette party and should always be within arm’s reach. After all, it’s never bad to have hand sanitizer if you get into an interesting situation with someone at the bar or club. If you plan on traveling this weekend, I’d recommend packing some hand sanitizer to take with you in case there are no bathrooms available when nature calls (or before nature calls).
If you’re hosting your bachelorette party at home, I highly recommend having a bottle handy for everyone who comes over so that they can wash up after their stay—you don’t want anyone getting sick!
While going out, staying in, or hosting a party, snacks are essential to the bachelorette survival kit. Snacks can be used for all-night partying, post-hangover cravings, hunger pangs that hit when you least expect them (or when you don’t want to leave the couch), boredom (anyone who’s seen Sex and The City knows this one), and tiredness—the latter being particularly helpful for those moments where you’ve been up since 5 AM having fun with your friends and need to crash.
Snacks are also great because they can be taken anywhere as long as there’s no overbearing security guard or hostess who won’t let them into specific venues (though usually, if they have potatoes on their person, they won’t be beaten back). Or maybe it’s just me? Either way: snacks equal awesome!
Tissues are a must-have for any bachelorette party or celebration because you never know when you’ll need them. You can use them to clean up messes, blow your nose, and clean up your makeup or body. You should always keep a box of tissues in the car because it’s better to be prepared than not.
A good example is if you’re at home with some friends having drinks and someone starts crying over something really stupid (like they got their favorite pair of shoes dirty). Pull out some tissues and offer them one so that they feel better! This shows compassion without being overly dramatic about things!
Lipstick and Chapstick
You’ve probably heard the saying, “the lips are the gateway to the heart.” While this might be true, it’s also true that your lips are the gateway to your face, and they’re often neglected in favor of other parts of our bodies. This can wreak havoc on their health. What happens when you get a cold? You start sniffling and sneezing, which leads to a runny nose—but what about your lips? They may be more sensitive than usual because they’re exposed to all kinds of germs—including those from inside our noses!
If you want your bachelorette party weekend to go smoothly (and if you don’t feel like being sick for days afterward), chapstick is an absolute necessity. It’s easy enough for everyone in attendance to bring one each so there isn’t any grumbling about who forgot their lip balm this time around; plus it’s cheap enough that even if someone forgets theirs again (hey there buddy!), she won’t have lost too much money by doing so since these smooth little sticks will only set her back around five bucks apiece at most retail stores such as Target or Walgreens.*
Lipstick is also great for keeping up appearances when going out on Saturday night with friends after having drinks earlier that evening: nothing says classy like putting some color back onto chapped lips! Trust us when we say this will help keep those conversations flowing without stopping every few seconds due to dryness issues or uncomfortable tingling sensations caused by lack thereof.”
Extra Gloves for Cold Weather
You’re going to want to bring extra gloves for your trip. It can get really cold in the mountains, so you must protect yourself. These will also come in handy if you have a long day and your hands get tired. The best thing about these extra pairs of gloves is that they are multipurpose! You can use them for:
- Keeping warm. If you don’t have enough heat in the cabins, these will help ensure that you keep warm at night when it’s cold outside
- Cleaning dishes, pots, and pans without getting disgusted by all the germs on what could otherwise be a beautiful meal cooked over an open fire.
- Protect yourself from getting any scrapes or cuts while hiking through rough terrain (or even just walking around campus). This one is self-explanatory—there are just too many things out there waiting to hurt you (rocks, trees), so it’s better safe than sorry!
Condoms and Lube
Condoms and lube are a must-have for any bachelorette party. You can’t have the latter without the former, so if you’re worried about traveling with condoms or simply don’t want to, don’t sweat it: Many drug stores sell them behind the counter at a much cheaper price than you’d find them in a convenience store.
If you’ve got a specific brand in mind (I like Kimono MicroThin), then feel free to bring them along; otherwise, pick up what’s available at your destination.
Lube is another thing that should be available wherever there’s an adult novelty shop or pharmacy—and depending on where you’ll be traveling, some places may surprise you with their selection! Most gentlemen prefer silicone-based lubricants because they stay slick longer and wash off easily when desired.
A Pair of Extra Underwear or Swimsuit Bottoms
A pair of extra underwear or swimsuit bottoms to use as a liner in case of accidents, especially if you’re wearing something that might be ruined by blood! (Or, you know, in case you get lucky.)
- If you’re wearing something that might be ruined by blood, use extra underwear or swimsuit bottoms as a liner.
- In case of accidents.
- If you get lucky.
Breath Mints or Gum or Travel-Sized Toothpaste and Toothbrush
This step won’t be necessary if you don’t have bad breath. For those of us who do, it’s a nice touch.
- You also don’t want to be the person who smells bad, especially when it comes time to kiss the bride and groom (and everyone else).
- If you’re traveling and don’t have room for travel-sized toothpaste and toothbrush in your bachelorette survival kit, just ask someone at the front desk if they have some on hand that guests can borrow—they’ll almost always offer.
A Phone Charger
I don’t know about you, but my phone is always with me when I go out. You must have a charger for your phone; without it, you won’t be able to use your phone at all.
You’ll miss all the fun details of your bachelorette party! In addition to keeping yourself charged up so that you can document every moment of your big night (and make sure everything goes smoothly), having a phone charger will also allow friends who may be worried about you or need help getting home safely come get in touch with each other.
Extra Dollars in The Local Currency
A few extra dollars in the local currency or a nearby ATM so you can always buy your own drink. Put aside a little extra cash for gratuity if you’re going somewhere with notoriously cheap people or in a foreign country where tipping is not the norm.
Put aside a little extra cash for gratuity if you’re going somewhere with notoriously cheap people or in a foreign country where tipping is not the norm.
The last thing you want is to be stuck buying everyone’s drinks—especially if they’re going to leave them half-finished on the bar anyway. It’s also important that you have enough money on hand so that when it comes time for your turn at the bar, or for tip time at dinner, you can do so without feeling any pressure from those around you.
Bringing These Things
Making sure to bring these things will ensure that everyone has a more comfortable time at your bachelorette party.
Ensuring everyone has the best time possible when planning a bachelorette party is essential. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of items every girl should bring along with her when she travels.
- Hand sanitizer
- Wet wipes (For wiping down hands, face, and other areas that may feel grimy)
- Body spray or perfume
- Deodorant – for those who would like some spritz on their pits before heading out for the night! (Not mandatory) * Lip balm – A little bit of moisture goes a long way! Especially if you’re drinking lots of alcohol at your bachelorette party.
Ingredients to Include
When it comes to the bachelorette party, one of the most important things to remember is to pack a bachelorette survival kit. The party is unpredictable, and if things go wrong, you’ll need some essential items to keep the bride-to-be hydrated. There are many options, including Zaca hydration and liver aid chewable.
Hangover cures and pain relievers are essential for a bachelorette survival kit. You’ll also want to include a mini bottle of vodka or champagne and some pens. Some other useful items for the kit include glutamine, hovenia Dulcis, prickly pear, and spare earring backs.
Makeup-removing wipes are also a necessity. Hotel soap is harsh on the skin, so you’ll want something gentle that will not irritate your skin. Also, be sure to pack some Aloe Vera gel to help with sunburn. Lastly, don’t forget to apply sunscreen! Having plenty of sunscreens is essential because hotel soap is often harsh and drying.
I hope this list helps you feel more prepared for your bachelorette party and makes you laugh! Remember that it’s all about having a good time. If you’re nervous about going out with your friends or feeling like they’re not as excited as they used to be, remember that this is an experience you can look forward to sharing. And don’t forget: the best way to deal with any situation is to keep calm and carry on!
