Fiesta themed bachelorette parties are a tradition that’s no longer confined to the southwest. From Las Vegas to Miami, bachelorette party-goers across the country are bringing the sombrero out of the closet for one final fiesta celebrating the bride-to-be. Although this theme has become popular in recent years, planning a last fiesta can still be challenging. Whether you’re going all out or doing it on a budget, these tips will help you plan an unforgettable fiesta bachelorette party

How to plan a final fiesta bachelorette party

1. Choose a location

The number one factor in deciding where to host the final fiesta bachelorette party is where most of your guests will be traveling from. If most of your friends and family live within driving distance, choose a city with lots of bars and clubs to visit. However, if most of your guests are traveling from out of town, choose a location that offers plenty of options for food, entertainment, and activities during the day (and also make sure there are plenty of hotel rooms available).

2. Send fiesta bachelorette party invitation

Whether you are the maid of honor, mother of the bride, or the bridesmaids, crafting the perfect bachelorette party invitation wording should not be challenging. There are a few things you’ll want to consider when crafting your bachelorette party invitation wording:

What’s your theme? Try something like, “It’s time for one last fling before the ring!” If it’s something more alternative, let the guests know a little about what to expect with wording like “Let’s get weird before she says ‘I do!'”

Who is hosting? Is it the bride organizing this soiree or someone else (the maid of honor, mother-in-law, or matron of honor)? It’s crucial to credit the host in your invitation wording.

When and where? Ensure all the details, including date, time, address, and special instructions.

The deadline and contact information: Include those details if you need an accurate headcount and have special instructions for guests.

6. Fiesta themed bachelorette party decorations

If you’re planning a fiesta-themed bachelorette party, you’ll want to set the tone with some fun and festive decorations. Here are some of our favorites:

Flowers: You can go for flowers such as sunflower because they perfectly represent a sunny summer day. You can also go for bright colored Gerbera daisies or white Lilies and Orchids.

Pinata: The piñata is a classic Mexican celebration staple, so it’s a must-have for your fiesta bachelorette party. There are plenty of places to buy a piñata or make one yourself. Just go with what suits your style and budget.

Cactus balloons: Cactus balloons add the perfect festive touch to any fiesta party.

Fiesta Streamer: The streamer is perfect if you want to stick with a color scheme but want to add something festive to your decorations.

Mini Sombreros: These mini sombreros are great for decorating tables or as favors for guests.

7. Fiesta themed bachelorette party games

Party games are a great way to break the ice and get everyone in the fun spirit. Fiesta-themed party games can be as simple as pinning on a cactus tail or as involved as creating a piñata. Either way, you’re going to have the best fiesta ever!

Incorporate Mexican foods into your fiesta games! Use churro ice cream cones to play a churro eating contest game. Give each lady a clean plate and a churro ice cream cone. On the go, they must eat their cone without using their hands. The first person done wins! Here are ideas of games to play at the bachelorette party.

  1. Name that Sombrero: Have a bunch of sombreros of various sizes, colors, and styles. Each person needs to try on the hat and tell the group what her name would be if she were a sombrero.
  2. Pin the Tail on the Donkey: The classic Pin the Tail game gets a Mexican twist. Using a poster of a donkey or Chihuahua, players need to pin their tails in inappropriate places.
  3. Find the Mini Donkey: This variation is from the traditional hunt-and-find game. Instead of hiding eggs, hide small figurines of donkeys or Chihuahuas.
  4. Drinking Games: No bachelorette party is complete without a little booze. Play some drinking games at the party.

8. Entertainment

Bachelorette parties are a fun and festive occasion, and what’s more positive than a fiesta? I’ve been to a few fiesta-themed parties, and they’re always a lot of fun. If you’re planning a fiesta themed bachelorette party, here are some ideas for entertainment:

Live Mariachi Band: One thing that makes fiestas so much fun is the music. One option is to hire a mariachi band to perform at your party. You could have them play as guests arrive or as part of the main event. It will set the tone for the evening, but it can also provide entertainment for your guests. They may even be willing to pose for pictures with your group!

Bilingual DJ: Another way to get into the spirit of a fiesta is to hire a bilingual DJ who can play music and English-speaking music. Give them some guidelines beforehand to know what type of music you want to be at your party. That will ensure everyone has a good time!

And that’s all! Go ahead and plan the perfect final fiesta bachelorette party for the bride-to-be!
