3 Bachelorette Banner Ideas for a Kick-*** Party
Good music, alcohol and nude men are the core of a good bachelorette party. But once you’ve booked the DJ and secured enough food and drinks, the décor should be next on your list. A bachelorette party is for you and your girls to get together before the main event (the wedding) and creating a customized bachelorette party banner for the bride-to-be is the best way to get the bridesmaids and other friends together.
No.1 Customized Bachelorette Banner: Crazy-in-Love
When it comes to a bachelorette party, you have to get creative with the words. You can choose short phrases from songs or use the bride’s name to make the perfect bachelorette party banner saying.
Crazy-in-Love by Beyoncé should be any bride-to-be’s bachelorette anthem, and that is why it is our first banner.
You can hang this banner across the wall, behind where the bride will sit or across the table where the gifts would be placed — either way, this banner is meant to make a statement.
- Banner template
- Twine or ribbon
- Hole Puncher
- Command Hooks
- Printed letters
Once you’ve gathered all the supplies, gather the bridesmaid together, and show off your creative side to the bride-to-be. The printed letters you’ll need should be 10 in total. Print out a banner template and trace it out on the cardstock. Once that is done, use your printed or store-bought letters to spell out all 11 letters.
Once the letters are traced out, put glue in the letters, and pour glitters in the letters to turn them to glitter letters (you can equally print out glitter letters). Punch a hole on each of the pennants using the hole puncher. String the letters together, and your crazy-in-love banner is ready to be hung.
If your bride-to-be liked this banner, she’d probably keep it for her wedding drive away car.
No.2 Almost-A-Mrs Banner
For a more obvious banner, we’ve decided to add the Almost-A-Mrs banner as a perfect bachelorette party sign. This banner is a bit more creative, but the more creative, the more fun. For this banner, you can give each letter to each bridesmaid, if you have ten bridesmaids that is. Great for black and gold parties.
- Wooden Dowel
- ¼ yard of fabric (floral or solid color)
- Metallic iron on vinyl
- Cricut explore
- String or ribbon
If you feel your fabric is a bit rumpled, start by smoothening it out because a crinkle-free canvas ensures your work comes out flawless.
To cut the pennants out perfectly, download and cut out printable banners on your fabric. Trace out the pennants to your fabric and cut out with scissors. Print out letter templates and use paint to spell out each letter on the center of each cut-out fabric. Let it dry out completely. Repeat this process for the other nine letters.
Once they are cut into shape, you can either use a sewing machine to clean out the edges or use hot glue.
Wrap the top of the cloth around a wooden dowel, using glue to secure it. Attach a string of twine to each side of the wooden dowel and hang it on the wall. Now use command hooks to hang your Almost-A-Mrs banner on the wall.
Using your Cricut explore, cut out shapes such as rings, champagne glasses, flowers, and heart shapes. Use hot glue to attach these shapes to the dowel or on the string. To add a bit more flair, cut pastel ribbons and tie them on each side of the wooden dowel.
No.3 She Said Yes.
This is the last banner on this list and quite frankly the most complicated. But DIY lovers would enjoy this challenge. If you’re finding it hard to choose between the three banners, we recommend you follow your guts and just hang all the banners around the bachelorette hall. If you think that’s too much, then you can hang this particular banner on car, if all the bridesmaids and bride-to-be would be going on an adventure.
- Scissors or X-Acto knife
- Scrapbooking letters or silhouette machine
- 3-D adhesive sticker
- 3/8” grosgrain ribbon
Download and print out the banner on cardstock. Cardstock is much better than regular paper because it is weightier. Cut out the printed pennants. This saves more time cutting each banner one by one.
Use your silhouette machine to cut out scallop designs on another cardstock, preferably one with a different color of design (we choose to use black).
Print out the letter for each word. You should have about ten letters in total. Trace out the letters with an X-Acto knife. Once the letters are cut out, stick the letters to the black scalloped circles with a glue.
Punch a hole on each banner, and then stick the scalloped circles with the letters to banners. String all the pennants together using either a string or a ribbon.
Where to Hang Your Banners
We know that not all bachelorette parties happen indoors, most brides like a camp bachelorette, or just a simple outdoors party around a bonfire. If you’re wondering how to hang up your newly decorated bachelorette sign, here’s five simple ways to show off your craftsmanship stylishly;
- Hang it behind a chair, but make sure the chair would be placed in the center of the party to complement the other party decorations
- Hang it across a table; whether indoors or outdoors, a banner across a table, especially the one that holds are the food or all the gifts would not be missed.
- Hang it on a fence; if you’re doing an outdoor party, hang the banner across a fence using grommets and zip ties or hanging clips.
- Ceiling; nothing screams “notice me” than a banner hanging from a ceiling. It won’t be that had to miss. Secure the banner with either rope or string.
These DIY options are great, but can require a lot of prep time and can cause some headache. Usually you want these banners to be perfect since they are a big highlight of the party and make it in most photos. To make sure you have a perfect experience, we recommend ordering your banners online.
