Whether you’re getting married or celebrating your bestie saying, “I do,” one thing is on your mind: the bachelorette party. This is a weekend or a night spent at a dreamy hotel that’s meant for you, your girls, and a bottle or two of champagne. It’s meant for exploring a new city like Nashville, Las Vegas, or Charleston, throwing glitter in the air, and dancing until past midnight. So far, you’ve prepared for it by sending out itineraries to the rest of the bridal crew, and deciding on the outfits you’re going to wear. You’ve looked into rooftop bars, and made reservations for brunch, too. But, you still need clever bachelorette party picture ideas that are anything but cliché.
Don’t stress — I’m a self-proclaimed expert of all things related to social media and Instagram. That means I know exactly what props you need to pick up before you start celebrating the bride-to-be, and the filters that’ll make your pics glow brighter than the sun. I know the trends that are so overrated, and the ones that are timeless, like mirror selfies, captions with puns, and snaps of the wing of an airplane.
Most importantly, I have a strong imagination that can come up with an endless amount of ideas for photo shoots and Instagram-worthy experiences for your bachelorette party. (Weird brag?) Right now, I’m thinking you and the “I do” crew need to recreate these five ideas that your followers will love, because they are anything but cliché.
1. THE “ON CLOUD WINE” PICTURE
The first of these bachelorette party picture ideas is what I like to call, the “on cloud wine” picture. It’s for when you’re sipping a rosé or frosé with the bride-to-be on a rooftop bar, and soaking up the grape times. It’s also for when you’re making a toast and reminiscing on the memories you’ve made, and the even sweeter ones to come.
In that moment, you’ll look over at your bestie with a gleaming smile and raise your glass. Someone will be on the other side of the table or reserved room at the winery, with a DSLR camera or phone. They’ll snap a few pictures of your glasses clinking together, your bestie laughing into her Pinot Grigio, or you holding up a finger as if to say, “I’ll be there in a prosecco.”
They’ll send the pics to you so that you can find one you like and post it to social media with a wine bachelorette hashtag. Then, you’ll take a bunch of selfies, too, because wine not?
2. THE “SOAKING UP THE SINGLE LIFE” PICTURE
If you and the bridal crew are heading somewhere with sun, surf, and turf for the bachelorette party, then you should take a “soaking up the single life” picture. That’s because, the bride is celebrating her last moments of being “single” before she ties the knot. Of course, she’s happily committed and in love with her significant other. But, she’s also ready to bask in the sunshine, relax, and celebrate this milestone with her closest friends. Pics are #necessary.
Simply lay out on a bunch of towels in the sand, lounge chairs, or pool floats with your besties. You throw on a pair of sunnies, cue a good playlist for the beach, and strike a pose. You can toss a kiss toward the lens, or casually smile to show you’re feeling relaxed and refreshed. You can raise your arms over your head, or pretend you’re laughing because the bride-to-be said something hilarious like, “What if I forget my wedding dress on the day of?” (You’re not going to let that one happen.)
Then, you start adding in props like pineapples and freshly-made smoothies that you’ve been enjoying all afternoon. Full disclosure: Space in your camera roll will be required.
