Bachelorette parties can be stressful affairs to plan. The creativity and coordination they take can be a bit overwhelming, whether you’re the maid of honor or the bride-to-be. Lucky for all you future brides and besties, we have some major inspiration for you. From nights with Neflix to partying into dawn, these paintings are the perfect bachelorette party inspiration. There should be a little something for everyone in these colorful masterpieces. Let the art do the talking and get ready for a serious creativity boost.
Three Women, Fernand Léger
Who says you have to go out on your bachelorette party? If a night in with Netflix is your idea of the perfect evening, go for it. Sip coffee, champagne, or cava with your friends. Play Cards Against Humanity. Play Risk. Eat junk food and turn your bachelorette party into the most relaxed pre-wedding event ever.
Primavera, Sandro Botticelli
We chose Primavera for one simple reason; it doesn’t get more classic than 1482. What we’re saying is, embrace tradition. Throw your dream bachelorette party. And if that’s chippendales and questionably themed alcoholic beverages, that’s totally cool. Just like the woman in the center of the painting, you’re the center of your bachelorette party! Don’t forget to make it about everything that you love.
Madame X (Madame Pierre Gautreau), John Singer Sargent
This portrait is less about inspiration for a party and more about you and your outfit. Go classy, graceful, and poised by mirroring Madame X and her killer attire. With an awesome outfit you feel comfortable in and a dash of class, you’ll bring the awesome to the party.
Nasturtiums and the ‘Dance’, Henri Matisse
Get together with your BFFs and do whatever the heck you want. Dance, howl, cry, sing, you can do anything you like at your party. Go out dancing. Go to a rave. Go skinny dipping! This Matisse reminds us to let loose. It’s also housed at The Met, the perfect party location for a group of art-loving friends!
Sunrise, Roy Lichtenstein
Make it to sunrise. Plan a elaborate party that lasts into the early hours of the next day. Go club hopping until your feet hurt. If you want some excitement at your bachelorette party, don’t let time get in your way. Give prizes to people who last all night and don’t forget to take a nap before the all-night festivities begin.
Untitled, Keith Haring
Your bachelorette party can go down any way you want. So, you if you want to invite your partner to the party, DO IT. Break tradition and nix the bachelor party too. Mix it up and just have one big party for everyone. There are no rules here!
The Large Bathers, Paul Cézanne
You don’t have to stick around town for your bachelorette party. If you have serious wanderlust, plan a trip! Go someplace exotic or to the next city over; it’s up to you. Get your friends on board and make it a weekend getaway. Since this painting is called The Bathers, it also makes us think of a spa weekend. In the same vein as travel, a spa weekend is prime for pampering yourself and spending quality time with people you love.
Die Jungfrauen, Gustav Klimt
Did someone say sleepover? Sleepovers are awesome. Why not throw a grown-up slumber party? Booze, movies, friends, truth or dare, the list of activities is endless. Plus, a sleepover isn’t too tricky to plan; it just needs a bit of preparation.
Day Dream, Andrew Wyeth
There are some serious laissez faire vibes radiating from this painting, reminding us of one key thing about bachelorette parties: if you want to sleep in, day dream, day drink or do nothing, it’s all up to you. The modern bachelorette party is all about doing what we want.
Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci
Perfect your smile, let down your hair, and sit for 500 years while you get increasingly famous!
We hope you can come up with some awesome party ideas from these paintings – because your bachelorette party shouldn’t be hassle or a pain to plan, it should be exciting!
