We're here to help you transform your vision into reality by sharing exciting ideas on how to host the ultimate Barbie-inspired bachelorette party.

Let's give the bride-to-be a celebration that will be talked about for years to come!
Book a Barbie Dream Airbnb
To set the stage for your Barbiecore bachelorette party, start by booking a Barbie-inspired Airbnb. More specifically, a space that will transport you and your guests into a world of pink and glamor! Look for listings that feature bold pink hues, chic decorations, and contemporary furnishings. Most bridesmaids also like to do some decorating of their own, so consider the available wall space and how you will make the rental your own. Of course, you will also want to check the basics — whether there is enough space for all your guests to gather and sleep. We also recommend that you consider other amenities that might contribute to your experience. Like if there is a pool, where you can chill in the afternoons. Or if there are multiple restrooms, where you can easily get ready if you plan to spend a lot of time out on the town.
Pick On-Theme Bachelorette Bridesmaid Gifts
One of our favorite aspects of hosting a Barbie-themed bachelorette is the range of options for bridesmaid gifts. Surprise your girls with on-theme goodies that encompass the Barbie aesthetic! Start with a Personalized Neon Plastic Tote, perfect for carrying on a shopping trip or packing essentials to the beach. Fill it up with items of your choice that are relevant to your destination or plans on the itinerary. For example, a sunny summer bachelorette calls for a Retro Sunnies and Embroidered Bucket Hats. If you’re planning a poolside retreat, gift your girls Holographic Visors and Barbie Tumblers. Of course, you can never go wrong with mini beauty products — Neutrogena Face Wipes, Sun Bum Face Stick, Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, and MAC Setting Spray. In addition to hangover kits, stocked with Liquid IV, Advil, and Vitamin C. These gifts will not only make your bridesmaids feel special but will come in handy throughout the stay.

Coordinate Barbie-Inspired Bachelorette Outfits
Dressing the part is essential for a Barbie-themed bachelorette party. Encourage your girls to embrace their inner icon by coordinating Barbie-inspired outfits! Think bright and bold colors, sequins, and anything that screams glamor and fun. This might include pastel-colored dresses or jumpsuits, retro-inspired or glittery shoes, oversized sunglasses, and statement jewelry. Traditionally, bridesmaids are also requested to wear black (while the bride is in white). Instead, ask that they opt for hot pink — this will also ensure that they stand out in the downtown crowds! To commemorate dressing up, fashion a life size Barbie box where you can capture each evening's outfit. Or, go the traditional route and fashion a wall with sequin panels and vibrant balloons or a quirky banner.
Plan a Poolside Bachelorette Picnic
An alternative to a rowdy night out, or to recover after one, consider enjoying a poolside picnic. You can always go the classic route, spreading out an array of blankets and pillows. Or, for an added touch of luxury, hire a local company to set up low tables with oversized colorful cushions and parasols. Create a tablescape to match, elevated with bold pink plates and elegant wine glasses. Pour your friends a glass of Fleur de Mer’s summery, fruit-forward Rosé to add an extra splash of refreshment and aesthetic charm to your gathering. As an activity, test your girl's knowledge on the bride or play Barbie-themed trivia! Just don’t forget to decorate the pool. Purchase some colorful or retro-inspired floaties, to double as flotation devices and photo props. Complete with refreshing (maybe boozy) beverages and light bites, a chill picnic will be a relaxing and reenergizing end to a long weekend.
Hosting a Barbie bachelorette party is an opportunity to create a truly enchanting experience for the bride-to-be and her closest friends. It's about capturing the essence of joy, celebrating friendship, and providing a moment of blissful relaxation before the big day. By infusing the party with vibrant colors, trendy Barbiecore elements, and thoughtful details, you can craft magical moments that will forever hold a special place in her heart.
