Alright, so you have decided to come to Prince Edward County for your upcoming bachelorette Party (check!). You have booked your accommodations (check!) and your wine tour with County Limo Co (check!). You want this to be the most memorable weekend of the year (besides the wedding day, of course), but you’re not sure where to go from here.
Well, that’s where we come in! We are County Baches, your bachelorette party fairy godmothers, and we have compiled our top tips and tricks for planning the perfect bachelorette weekend in Prince Edward County.
5. Choose your bachelorette party theme
It may seem like an obvious place to start, but it’s a crucial step! Having a clever, fun, and photo worthy theme will create a great base for your decor, games, drinks and overall weekend vibe. Pick a theme that you know the bride will love (double check with her if you aren’t sure!) and get creative!
A few themes we love:
Tropical (beach vibes are perfect for the County)
Now that you have a theme, it’s time to brainstorm what type of decor you need. Decide on the colour scheme and start to gather decor that will bring your theme to life. Here’s a list of the essentials:
Boozy Bar (make it specific to your theme, like a margarita bar for a final fiesta!)
Cups / tumblers (even better, make them customized!)
Signage / Itineraries
Goodies for the bride or Goodie Bags customized for the whole crew

4. Be Prepared With Activities (But Don’t Overschedule)
We know that one of the main reasons for having your bachelorette party in the County is for the luxurious wine tour, BUT you will also want to make sure you have lots of activities and games to keep momentum going.
Here are some of our favourite Prince Edward County Bachelorette activities (outside of wineries, of course):
Book an appointment at Anice Jewellery to get permanent jewelry like bracelets and anklets - this is a great activity for a more sentimental bride
Shop the main streets of Bloomfield, Picton or Wellington for some adorable boutiques and shops
Book a private yoga session with @yogawithmikenzie (she even does goat yoga!!)
You will also want to have games handy for downtime at your Airbnb. Bring some board games or get creative and make one that is specific to your theme/the bride! We created the County Baches board game, which has been a total hit with our clients.
3. Consider Gifts for the Bride (or Goodie Bags for everyone!)
You want the bride-to-be to feel like a QUEEN, so a great way to make it extra special is to have surprises set up throughout the weekend. Here are a few ideas to get your creative wheels spinning:
Decked out bridal suite
Personalized t-shirt, sweater or pajama set
Gag gifts! (It wouldn’t be a bachelorette party without a cowboy hat veil, or underwear covered with the face of her fiancé)
Customized denim jacket (what girl doesn’t love a Canadian tuxedo!)
Hangover kit (eye / face masks, silk scrunchies, candles, shower bombs)
Make sure you plan ahead, and don’t overlook the details that will make the bride feel extra special!
2. Don’t forget about the Fiancé!
There are some elements of a traditional bachelorette party that we love, and this is one of them. Try to incorporate the fiancé in some way - and don’t be afraid to get creative with it!
From something like a cute video message to play at the beginning of the weekend, to hilarious ‘face on a stick’ props scattered around the AirBnb - helping the bride’s partner feel like a part of the festivities (and reminding the bride why she is getting married in the first place) is always a cute touch.
