What makes a Bachelorette Party at Mardi Gras so unique?
Everyone is ready to party! You won’t have any trouble finding someone to buy you a shot because you’re tying the knot. The whole town is ready to get down and have fun! Tons of music, food, and drinks will fill the atmosphere with little effort from you, Maid of Honor.
The costumes! It’s tradition to get the bride, bridesmaids and other bachelorette party attendees dressed in beads, tutus, face paint, and whatever else to make your group stand out. And that’s all a part of Mardi Gras. There will be no shortage of fun costumes and vibrant colors everywhere you turn!
It’s all about the storm before the calm. Mardi Gras is a last-ditch celebration before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. A Bachelorette party is a last-ditch celebration before your bestie turns bride. Need we say more?

Make your own King Cake or King Cake cupcakes. Other Mardi Gras inspired dishes can be easy to prepare too, like cake pops and purple trail mix.
Grab masquerade masks in your colors from your closest party store or have the party-goers design their own with glitter, feathers, and crepe paper. There are tons of places online to find free printables. You can even put together your own purple, yellow, and green tutus!
The drinks. Hire yourself a (cute) bartender for the night to mix your girls some sweet Mardi Gras drinks!
