How to Create the Perfect Disco Cowgirl Bachelorette Look

Bachelorette Party Themes that Match the Look: Nash Bash, Space/Disco Cowgirl, Wild Wild West, Last Rodeo

Are you ready to lasso up some fun and dance the night away with your cowgirl boots on? If you’ve been tasked with planning a bachelorette party that’s equal parts country flair and disco glam, then saddle up, partner, because we’ve got the ultimate guide for you!

Whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid, or maid of honor, let’s make sure the bachelorette party is unforgettable. And what better way to do that than with a one-of-a-kind Disco Cowgirl extravaganza elegantly put together by yours truly. So grab your sequins and your cowboy hats, and let’s get this bachelorette party started!

Bride dressed in white fringe jacket, white cowboy hat, and blue jeans, is raising her arms up in excitement while standing in front of a wall painted with a colorful candy hearts mural.

Sequins and Sass: The Recipe for
Disco Cowgirl Fashion

A Disco Cowgirl bachelorette outfit is all about combining the glitz and glamour of disco with the rugged charm of the Wild West. Take a look at some of your favorite western sci-fi films for vintage western inspiration such as Cowboy & Aliens or Back to the Future Part III for example. Think Clint Eastwood – cowboy boots, hat, triangle scarf, handkerchief… then add rhinestones, glitter, and everything SPARKLE.

When it comes to crafting the perfect Disco Cowgirl look, rhinestones are your best friend. Whether adorning your cowboy hat, embellishing your boots, or bedazzling your denim, rhinestones or reflective silver embellishments is a callback to the glittering disco ball. And let’s not forget about fringe! A fringe jacket or skirt adds movement and drama to your ensemble, giving you that unmistakable cowgirl flair. It ties together your southern fashion cuts with the vibe of retro 70’s cabaret – well, I declare it’s giving futuristic-nightclub-attendee that could live inside Bladerunner.

Help your friends visualize their inner disco-diva-meets-rodeo-queen by creating an aesthetic guide for them. We love Pinterest or Canva for creating sharable mood boards. I recon this Pinterest disco cowgirl bachelorette mood board encompasses the vision and is a great place to start building your outfit ideas. Personally, I would pair items together from this Desert Cactus Collection with a white, Personalized Fringe Jean Jacket and Jeweled Fedora Hat to complete the southern belle meets discothèque look. You’ll be prettier than a peach!

Embracing the Theme: Accessories and Gift Bags

Accessories are important for setting the mood, consider gifting your friends personalized, stylish burlap tote bags with disco ball and desert cactus western-style motifs? These chic and practical tote bags are perfect for carrying all their essentials in true cowgirl fashion. They’re durable, reusable, and they’ll love the added touch of sparkle and glamour, making them the perfect accessory for any disco cowgirl on the go. You can read more on how we created a simple DIY for disco cowgirl bachelorette gift bags that will complete the party here.

As the disco ball spins and the cowgirl boots stomp, remember that it’s not just about the outfits and accessories—it’s about the memories you’ll create together. So, as you gather your fellow cowgirls for your bachelorette party, cherish every moment, every laugh, and every twirl on the dance floor. After all, the true magic of a bachelorette party lies in the bonds of friendship and the joy of celebrating love.

So, whether you’re sipping cocktails under the neon lights or two-stepping to your favorite tunes in a white cowboy hat and glittery fringe jacket, take a moment to soak it all in. As the night comes to a close and you bid farewell to the glittering lights of the disco ball, know that the memories you’ve created will last a lifetime (especially because you were dressed like a million bucks). If you decide to try out any of the items suggested during your bachelorette party or trip, make sure to tag us @weddingfavorites.

Yeehaw and disco on, cowgirls!

2024 Wedding Trend Predictions

With the new year, comes new trends and we can’t wait to see what wedding trends emerge this year. Picture this: content creators turning “I Do” into Insta-gold, private ceremonies for a more intimate affair, and a groovy trip back to the 70s. Join us as we spill the tea on what we think more couples will do for their weddings in 2024. Ready for the deets on these wedding trend predictions? Let’s dive in!

Wedding Content Creators

The first wedding trend, one that was taking everyone by storm in 2023, is wedding content creators. We saw social media content creators niche down and offer their services to brides on their wedding day. With all the excitement and eagerness of getting married, you might not remember to film that video clip for a TikTok trend that you wanted to do. Having a personal content creator on your wedding day solves that pain point. They capture all the fun and candid moments throughout your big day so you can stay off your phone and stay present in the moment. You don’t have to be an influencer to want to share your wedding moments on IG or TikTok. Hiring a wedding content creator is a different way to capture candid, unforgettable moments on your big day.

(If you’re on a tight budget and can’t afford another vendor, you could ask that tech-savvy friend of yours to be in charge. Perhaps you have a junior bridesmaid who knows all the TikTok trends and dances.)

70s-Inspired Aesthetics

Get ready to throw it back to the days of disco balls and flower power! According to Pinterest Predicts, the 70s are making a comeback in bridal aesthetics. Bringing back bohemian florals, flowy sleeves, and a whole lot of groovy vibes. Brides in 2024 are saying yes to the free-spirited, laid-back feels of the 70s, turning their weddings into a nostalgic dance of love. Wedding color palettes will incorporate more mustard yellows, burnt oranges, and earthy browns. Dance floors will be transformed into a funky disco where the couple and guests can boogie the night away. 2024 is all about timeless love and a whole lot of retro charm.

Digital Guest Books

Out with the pen and paper, in with digital memories! Digital guest books are the new wedding trend, letting guests leave messages, photos, and even videos for the couple to look back on. It allows guests to better capture their energy while celebrating the newlywed. A popular alternative are Polaroid guestbooks where guests snap a photo with a Polaroid camera. Now the concept has been entirely digitalized with QR codes that allow guests to upload photos straight from their phone. Sites like Guestpix or Kulu, make it easy for your guests to share their images, no app required. We think more couples will place these QR codes throughout their reception so guests can share their photos with ease.

Private Ceremony

Another wedding trend that we predict for 2024, is more couples opting for a private ceremony before their grand celebration. Private ceremonies allow couples to exchange vows in a setting that truly resonates with their love story. It allows the couple to have a heartfelt moment without the pressure of adhering to traditional norms. Whether it’s a secluded garden, a beach at sunset, or the comfort of home, private ceremonies offer the flexibility to choose a location that holds sentimental value. After the intimate “I Dos” they can celebrate with the rest of their friends and family at the reception.

Pearls & Bows

Lastly, we think classic elegance will get a modern twist with pearls and bows stealing the spotlight. Pearls, the OG symbol of sophistication, are continuing to make a comeback in bridal accessories and decor. Paired with whimsical bows, it’s a combo that adds a touch of romance and charm to the wedding scene. Nothing says romance quite like a beautifully tied bow. From delicate bows accentuating the back of a wedding dress to oversized bows adorning chairs or floral arrangements. It’s traditional but with a modern twist.

Alright, wedding trendsetters, get ready to say “I Do” in style in 2024! From digital guest books to pearls & bows bringing classic charm, it’s a year of bridal trends that’ll make your heart race. Stay tuned as we share how to turn your wedding dreams into reality!

Crafting Your Own DIY “His & Hers” Candy Wedding Favors

Weddings are all about celebrating love, and what better way to express that love than with personalized and charming favors? In this blog post, we’ll guide you through a delightful journey of creating your own acrylic candy boxes filled with delectable treats. Our DIY “His & Hers” candy wedding favors are a combination of elegance and sweetness, offering a creative way to thank your guests for being part of your special day.

His & Hers candy box wedding favors with a "Love is Sweet: Please Take a Treat" banner.

The best part about this DIY is that it requires only a few materials and is very quick to make. If you’re looking for a super cute addition to your wedding décor, this is definitely worth doing. We’ve broken the process down into only 3 steps, which makes it reasonable for anyone to accomplish!

Things You Will Need:

Step 1 – Gather Your Supplies:

Before we can get started, the first and foremost step is for you to obtain all the items you will need to craft your own His & Hers candy wedding favors. You’ll want to head to weddingfavorites.com and select one of our clear candy favor box styles. You can choose styles from clear acrylic squares, and round glass candy favor jars, to mini glass mason jars in various sizes. Each option comes with its own label style that can be personalized. When you go to place your order, make sure that you’ve selected two different label styles, one for “his” and one for “her”.

We opted for these Clear Acrylic Favor Boxes with white labels for “her” and black labels for “his”. Additionally, our favorite candies of choice were Jelly Bean Confections and Chocolate Whoppers. Yum!

Step 2 – Assemble “Her Favorite” Candy Favors

Once you have all of your items in one place, you’ll need to separate them. Organization is key! So, if you’ve purchased 80 containers, move 40 to one side for “her” and 40 to the other side of the table for “his”. Move the correct candy to each side of the table, so that you won’t accidentally make too many containers with the same type of candy. We want to make sure there are an equal number of giveaway candy favor boxes for all your guests.

Now, you’ll want to start filling the containers. We started with “Her Favorite”, Chocolate Whoppers. Open the containers one at a time, and fill to the top with her favorite candy!

Most likely, you’ll have a lot of boxes to fill. We recommend utilizing the Pomodoro Technique, a time management strategy invented by Italian Francesco Cirillo, which suggests that you should focus on one single task at a time for about 25 – 30 minutes, then take a 5-minute break. After 4 Pomodoro sessions, take a longer break of about 10 – 15 minutes. This way, you can maximize your efficiency by intensely focusing on one task at a time!

After you’ve filled all the containers with her candy, next you’ll want to peel & apply the labels. Remember to drink water and take breaks when needed to prevent wedding DIY burnout. You’ll gently peel the label from the sheet, center and align them to the container, press and seal them. That’s it!

Step 3 – Repeat for “His Favorite” Candy Wedding Favors

After you’ve completed “Her Favorites” it’s time to make candy containers for the hubby! Just like a relationship, it takes 2. You’ll follow the same steps from Step 2 when you made the bride’s candy wedding favors. So get “his” boxes, candy, and labels. Then, fill, peel, stick and you’re ready to go!

This simple and cute DIY is a manageable and thoughtful parting gift for your guests at your wedding. It’s easy enough to do that if you’re too busy with other equally important wedding tasks, this could quickly be delegated to a Maid of Honor or Bridesmaid. This technique could also be used for other occasions because the labels are personalized. Think, birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, and more! You can insert any sweet treat of your choice that will fit inside the box. Pro Tip: We recommend pairing a dark candy with lighter labels so that the candy favors appear more dramatic in photos! (take a look at the example below 😉)

And that’s a wrap! Simple, yet beautiful, this delightful project is a perfect addition to any celebration and tells a symbolic story about you and the groom. Your personalized touch will resonate with your guests since these charming favors reflect your creativity and thoughtfulness. If you are inspired to include this DIY in your upcoming wedding celebration, tag us @weddingfavorites so we can share it with other brides!

How to Create a Glamorous Barbie-Themed Bachelorette Party

Barbie’s iconic all-pink, ambitious lifestyle has captured the hearts of generations, making her the perfect muse for your Barbie-themed bachelorette party!

Embracing the Barbie theme brings a sense of nostalgia, while also celebrating the empowerment and limitless possibilities that Barbie represents. From her glamorous wardrobe to her stylish accessories, Barbie embodies beauty, fashion, and unapologetic love for all things pink. So, get ready to channel your inner Barbie and create a Barbie-themed bachelorette party that is as fabulous as the iconic doll herself. It’s time to step into Barbie’s world and let the pink extravaganza begin!

Think Pink! It’s Barbie’s Favorite Color

Several squares are organized to reflect a pink value color palette to inspire shoppers to purchase pink items when they're shopping for their Barbie-themed bachelorette party.

To set the tone just right, take a look at this color palette we’ve put together inspired by Barbie’s absolute favorite color, pink! We love soft hues and believe that these colors will survive past your bachelorette since they can be matched easily to other items that are already in your wardrobe. To really sell the idea of Barbie, we suggest that all your clothing, decoration, gifts, and aesthetic accents are… pink, of course!

Add Accessories the Barbie Way

Between you and us, life is too short for boring outfits. So, raise your glass and indulge in fun fashion where pink is the essential accessory to your matching outfits.

Pick a Stay in Barbie’s Hometown

Fun Fact: Barbie is from Malibu! If a destination bachelorette was on your mind, there is nowhere else that would complement a Barbie-themed party better than Malibu, California.
