Live out your mermaid dream with your besties by planning the ultimate beach bachelorette. Bring snacks, drinks and mermaid-inspired gear (think: sparkly swimsuits, mermaid tail towels and shell-shaped accessories). Make sure you and your crew go for a swim to bring the theme to life.
Take things up a notch by inviting your swad to a boat day. Lean into your mermaid bachelorette party theme by renting a sail boat for the occasion. Bring along nautical decorations, mermaid fins and drinks.
If you can’t get to the water for your mermaid bachelorette party, bring the sea to you. Organize a seafood dinner where your crew can enjoy delicious food in an on-theme setting. Bonus points if the restaurant overlooks water.
Skip the ocean entirely and head to a pool instead. Whether you rent an Airbnb with a pool or you book a local rooftop pool, you can still host an incredible mermaid bachelorette party. Bring glittery decorations and on-theme accessories to bring the bride’s vision to life.
