A bachelorette party is an opportunity to take a bride-to-be out on the town to say goodbye to singlehood in style with the help all of her friends. Make the occasion extra special by throwing a surprise bachelorette party for this lady of honor. To pull off a surprise bachelorette party, you'll have to first send out invitations to all of her friends. When wording these invitations, let everyone on the list know it's a secret.

Basic

The purpose of an invitation is to let guests know the event is happening and that they're welcome to attend. Even for a surprise bachelorette party, stating the information in a basic style will get the job done. For example, the Scribd website offers the suggestion: "We would be pleased to have you join us at a Surprise Bachelorette Party honoring (bride's name)" before listing the other needed information. A simple saying such as "Shhh! You're invited to a surprise bachelorette party for (bride's name)" would also be appropriate.

Humor

A bachelorette party is about having a blast with the girls, so throw some humor into the invitation wording and set the tone for the rest of the event. For example, start the invitation by writing "One last fling before the ring! Join us as we celebrate (bride's name)'s last night as a single lady" with a surprise bachelorette party, as suggested on the Announcing It website. The Anna Murray Invitations website suggests writing "He caught her hook, line and sinker! Help us celebrate (Bride’s Name) last days as a single woman at a Surprise Party in her honor."

Rhyming

An invitation that's fun to read can include a short rhyme. "(Bride's name) has found her Mr. Right. Let's get the girls together before the big night!" is one suggestion by the Announcing It website, as well as "Come join (bride's name) and dance the night away before she walks down the aisle on her wedding day!" After each rhyme include "You're invited to a surprise bachelorette party in her honor." Make your own invitation slogan by incorporating rhyming words such as "single and mingle," or "booze and 'I dos'" or even "surprise and demise."

Other Information

Along with a catchy slogan to excite the guests and set the tone for the party, it's crucial to include the other information pertaining to the party. Make it clear that this is a surprise bachelorette party. You can write "This surprise bachelorette party will be held at (time) on (date)," followed by the venue name and address. Also, include some information about how to RSVP, such as "RSVP your attendance by calling (name) at (phone number)."
