1. Instead of some lame bar, go to a BYOB art class.
Studios, like New York City’s Paint Along, are starting to pop up across the country and offer group rates for private parties.
2. Up the ante with a *figure-drawing* class.
It’s halfway between going to a strip club and a museum, amirite?
3. Or a cooking class.
This “DJ Chef” cooking class looks especially promising.
Regardless of whether the wedding is destination or two blocks away, these boarding pass bachelorette party invites are adorable.
8. Make Jell-o shots special* by arranging them into a cake.
11. If you do go to a bar, subtly announce that you’re celebrating impending nuptials.
You can stick these in all manner of beverages. Available here.
12. Go camping.
Although you can go as fancy as you want. (Apparently there is a term for this and it is called “glamping.” Do with that what you will.)
13. Go PAINTBALLING.
Major bonus points if you wear thrift store dresses you don’t mind ruining, like this intrepid bridal party. It’s recommended that you “do it a couple of weeks out from the wedding so your bruises disappear.”
14. Think you’re past the point of sleepovers and pillow fights? Wrong.
This group surprised the bride with a huge grown-up pillow fight.
15. Give each guest a punchy gift box.
Tiny Absolut bottle non-negotiable.
18. Make Chippendale cookies.
This is still way more elegant than what it could be, okay? Directions here.
19. Make up your own version of Jeopardy.
Ask questions about the bride, the groom, Game of Thrones, yarn, or whatever else you guys happen to like a whole bunch. Also I have no earthly idea what a “boozy fish” is but I want one right now.
20. Take morning-after mugshots.
Chronicle the debauchery for the whole internet to enjoy.
