A bachelorette party is something you’ll remember forever. Celebrating a special weekend with your best friends before the big day is incredibly meaningful, not to mention fun! However, planning what to do and wear isn’t always easy, especially when you’re trying to fill the daytime hours between late nights out on the town. To help, we asked wedding planning expert Fallon Carter for tips on creating the ultimate daytime itinerary and bachelorette wardrobe.
“It really depends on the destination because there are so many things to possibly do," she says. Carter recommends group cooking or mixology classes, or a mix of outdoor and indoor activities"You could spend a weekend doing wineries...and horseback riding is always a favorite." Skiing, hiking, biking, and scenic jeep tours are all also great options for group bachelorettes. For a more adventurous or luxe trip, try hot air ballooning or island hopping on a yacht.

While the planning options are endless, the outfit options are not. Most daytime bachelorette activities require specific and comfortable activewear items—but which pieces are best? When searching for the best outfits for your bachelorette outings, Carter recommends thinking about the photos that you want to walk away with. From there, she recommends creating a storyboard that takes into account comfort, potential weather, and the proper attire required for certain outdoor activities.
Whether you’re hiking, swimming, or playing a round of golf with your girls, we’ve researched and narrowed down the best activewear outfit options with these features in mind. A few of our top picks include the Alo Yoga Airbrush Real Bra Tank, the Lanul Crossbody Belt Bag, and the Soothfeel Pleated Athletic Skirt.
