Nautical “Nauti” Bachelorette Party
Ahoy, sailor! The nautical/nauti bachelorette party theme is truly a summer-exclusive theme. Like, who wants to get on a boat in January? No, thanks! When the sun is shining and the days are extra long, there’s no better place to celebrate than on a boat! Don’t live near the water? What about taking your whole bridal party on a long weekend getaway to the beach?!
If you live near a body of water, search online for dinner cruise or charter cruise boat options! With a larger group, a private boat cruise is the perfect way to celebrate a nautical bachelorette party. Otherwise, rent an Airbnb with a pool and decorate the whole space in nautical-themed decor! Pick up a ship’s wheel or a few life rafts to make it feel like you’re out at sea!

Final Fiesta Bachelorette Party Theme
If you know Festivegal, you know how much we LOVE a final fiesta bachelorette party theme! There are so many reasons why it’s an amazing theme: perfect year-round, bright colors are the only decor requirement, Mexican food is involved (sign me up) AND margaritas are a must! I mean, the final fiesta theme is truly the perfect bachelorette party theme.
If you’re not having a destination final fiesta-themed bachelorette party, then bring Mexico to you! Organize a tequila tasting for the party as a fun way to get your drink on (but also learn something). Set up a pinata and let everyone take a whack at it!

2 ounces cream of coconut
1-1/2 ounces blanco tequila
