Those of you brides-to-be hosting a lesbian wedding, you probably don't want to stuff your bachelorette party full of penis paraphernalia. Some brides might love it, but others (whether you’re gender fluid, a lesbian, or just a little more reserved) can be totally turned off by an abundance of male genitalia. Is a penis theme just not for you? Here are a few ideas for a super-fun bachelorette party that leaves all that junk at home.

We’ve got some good news for you: Bachelorette parties can still be bachelorette parties without penis straws and male strippers! You’re still the brides-to-be and on your way down the aisle, no matter what.

Not a fan of anything that screams “bachelorette”? Go in a different direction with something a little more dignified. Gather your BFFs for a spa weekend, a slumber party in a fab hotel suite, a trip to the lake, or a few nights of camping at your favorite site. Bond, drink, laugh, and reminisce on your own terms. Instead of a night all about penises and doing shots, turn it into an experience that’s about the brides-to-be and really embrace the opportunity to mark the occasion with your friends.

Of course, if you’re all about the tiara, sash, and bar truth-or-dare games, go for it! Put on a little white dress, head to a bar you really love, and choose whichever body parts turn you on. (Hint: Boob cakes are way easier to make.) Head to the strip club if that’s your speed. There may not be many other ladies there, which means more attention for you! And if all you want to do is dance, find the best DJ in town and hit the dance floor.

Looking for something sexy but a little less “on display”? Turn your bachelorette party into a lingerie shower. You’ll get to stock your drawer with unmentionables, all while surrounded by the people you love and enjoy most.

If you and your partner have a large number of mutual friends, turn your bachelorette party into a joint affair. Invite everyone, get dolled up together, and celebrate your “last fling before the ring” with your love. You’re going to spend your lives together, so why not start now?
