Bachelorette Boat Party Ideas Your Entire Crew Will Love

Bachelorette Boat Party Ideas Your Entire Crew Will Love

Ahoy, bride-to-be and her besties! 

If you're planning a bachelorette boat party, firstly, it's an amazing choice! Second, you already know it will be an epic time filled with sun, sea, and celebrations. 

But now comes the complicated part. What to wear? You have to look fabulous, obviously, but you need something that the entire crew will love. 

Don’t you worry! We’ve got you covered with some killer bachelorette party outfit ideas that will make you and your entire crew feel special. 

What to Wear

When it comes to choosing the ideal style for the boat bachelorette party, you need to focus on two things: Comfort and Aesthetics. These are our hand-picked ideas that keep up with the latest trends. 

Nautical but Nice

Let’s start with a classic. How about a nautical-themed outfit (for obvious reasons)? Think stripes, anchors, and sailor hats. It's timeless, girl, and perfect for a boat party. You’ll look ready to sail the seven seas in style.


If you want to pair a nice sailor or captain’s hat and a sailor vest with a dress. We recommend off-shoulder STYLE 88695.

Mermaid Vibes

Get ready to channel your inner Ariel with some mermaid-inspired outfits. Luxurious fabrics, scales, and lots of sparkles are the way to go. Also, make sure you put on a red wig! 

This outfit will make you feel like you just swam up from a magical underwater world.

To embrace your inner mermaid, we recommend STYLE 94046. 

Tropical Glam

If your boat party is in a warm and sunny place (which it should be), go for a tropical theme. Think floral prints, bright colors, and breezy fabrics. A short dress is both stylish and comfortable for a day out on the water. No need to pair it with anything, that’s the beauty of it!


We have not one but two recommendations! STYLE 87131 and STYLE 88699.

Keep It White 

Why choose a completely white outfit (except for some sections of the outfit)? Because the color white absorbs the most heat, you can soak up the cool vibes of the ocean and the bachelorette party. For this, choose a short white dress and pair it with a contrasting sailor neck tie and captain hat! This is among the top-rated bachelorette ideas by top designers. 

Our recommendation is this amazing and bold white mini dress, STYLE 87185.

Boho Chic

In our opinion, there should be at least one bohemian chic at a bachelorette party. If you are one of them, fringe and lots of accessories will give you that effortlessly cool look. Think maxi dresses, wide-brimmed hats, and plenty of bangles.

For the boho chic within you, nothing beats this relaxed STYLE 87428.

The Shimmering Look

Not every outfit has to be ocean-inspired. Think of yourself as a pearl shining in the sun on a beach. For this, sequins are your best friend. We recommend adding a chiffon scarf with it to create a unique look. 

Get ready to sparkle the seas with STYLE 94033. 

How to Plan a Boat Party 

You’ve chosen a date, time, and destination. But now you are unsure of how to plan the ideal boat party for the bride-to-be and the girls. Don’t you sweat it! We are here to help!

Pick the Right Boat

Decide your gang’s size and what activities you have in mind (and, of course, the budget; the wedding is still on the way, remember?). While you can choose the smallest or the biggest water vessel out there, we recommend choosing a medium sailboat or a yacht. 

Send Out Invitations

Okay, you’ve picked a boat but never, and we mean NEVER, just send a text message as an invite. Print out the cards and send them out. If you think mailing will take too long, then get creative by creating digital invites and sending them via email. 

Plan the Route

Work with your boat rental company or captain to plan a route. Whether you want to cruise along the coast, anchor at a beautiful spot, or visit different locations, having a route ensures a smooth trip.

Pack Essential Items

Make a checklist of essentials like sunscreen, towels, hats, sunglasses, and a first-aid kit. Also, bring some entertainment options like games, music, and decorations to enhance the party vibe.

5 Important Tips for the Ideal Boat Party

Now that you’ve got your outfits sorted, let's talk about how to ensure a fun bachelorette boat party. Here are five essential tips to make your day on the water perfect and safe. 

Check the Weather

We understand you’ll be extremely excited about such an event; however, we highly recommend you book the boat (and location) after checking the weather forecast. 

It’s one thing to delay your party a day or two, but it’s a complete nightmare to get soaked in the rain at such a special party. Also, rain in the ocean can be scary. 

Safety First

As mentioned above, rain can be hazardous in open waters. Therefore, don’t drift away in the fun of the party. Before jumping aboard, make sure your boat is equipped with enough life jackets for everyone. It's also a good idea to review basic boating safety rules and ensure everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency. It might seem like a buzzkill, but safety always comes first!

Hydrate and Snack Up

Yes, we know you’ll be taking down those mimosas like it’s no one’s business; however, you’ll need plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially if you’re out in the sun all day. 

So, stock up on bottled water and pack some easy-to-eat snacks like sandwiches, fruit, and chips. Trust us on this, no one wants to party on an empty stomach!

A playlist is a MUST

Music sets the mood for any party, including your bachelorette boat party. So make sure to create a playlist with your crew’s favorite tunes to keep the energy high (even better if songs are from the bride’s favorite band or singer). 

Decorate the Boat

If you are going to a bachelorette party without decorating the boat, it’s a serious crime, honestly. Add a banner with the names of the girls or maybe some balloons. If you have a theme, use matching decorations to tie everything together. 

Get Ready to Set Sail

Whether you’re going for nautical, mermaid, tropical, or boho vibes, the key is having fun with it and ensuring everyone feels fabulous.

So gather your crew, pick out your favorite looks, plan the ideal party, and get ready to sail into an unforgettable bachelorette celebration!
