A disco-themed bachelorette party is a fun and unique way to celebrate the bride-to-be’s last days of singledom. It’s an opportunity for the bride and her closest friends to dance the night away while dressed in 70s-inspired outfits.
In this post, we’ll look at everything you need to make sure your Disco themed party is roller tastic!
Budgeting and Planning
Planning a bachelorette party can be a daunting task, but with the right budget and planning, it can be a fun and memorable experience for everyone involved. First and foremost, the planning stage is crucial to get the details correct.
Our printable Bachelorette planner is perfect to help you with this stage.
Set a Budget
Before planning anything, it’s important to set a budget. The budget will determine what activities you can do, where you can stay, and what food and drinks you can provide. Make sure to discuss the budget with all the attendees to ensure everyone is comfortable with the amount.
Set a Date well in Advance
It’s crucial to set a date that is agreeable for the majority of guests to avoid disappointment. Giving the guests as much notice as possible can ensure there are no clashes with other events.
Set the vibe with themed invitations
Disco themed invitations will help set the mood for the party, and they are the first impression guests will get. You can find a large selection of both hand made and digital invitations on Etsy that can be customised with your details.
The proper venue is essential for a disco bachelorette party. You need plenty of room for dancing, loud music, and food and drinks. Popular nightspots, roller rinks, event spaces, and banquet halls are all great options. However, if you’re looking for a more low-key vibe, you can plan the party at home, in the backyard, deck out your basement for a party zone, or throw it in your living room.
When selecting a venue, consider the number of guests you’ll be inviting, the type of music you’ll be playing, and the overall atmosphere you want to create. Make sure the venue has enough space for a dancefloor, seating areas, and food and drink stations.
To create a disco ambiance, decorate the venue with glittery disco balls, colourful streamers, and balloons. You can also use retro props like lava lamps, vinyl records, and 70s-style posters to set the mood.
Table decorations can include disco-themed balloon banners, such as mirror balls or mini disco balls. You can also use glittery tablecloths, napkins, and plates to add a disco sparkle to your party.
Lighting and Sound
Lighting and sound are crucial elements of a disco-themed bachelorette party. You can rent disco lights, strobe lights, and spotlights to create an electrifying atmosphere. Make sure the lighting is not too bright, as it can kill the disco vibe.
When it comes to music, create a playlist of disco classics, including hits from the Bee Gees, Donna Summer, and Gloria Gaynor. You can also hire a DJ to keep the music flowing and the dance floor packed.
A photo booth is a great way to capture memories from the disco themed bachelorette party. Set up a photo booth area with a disco ball backdrop, props such as wigs, sunglasses, and feather boas, and a camera or phone to take pictures. Encourage guests to take silly and fun pictures together.
You can also grab our printable Last Disco Photo Props as an instant download, making a great addition to the photo booth!
Provide a Polaroid camera or instant printer so that guests can take home their pictures as souvenirs.

When it comes to a disco-themed bachelorette party, the outfits are just as important as the music. Here are some ideas for the perfect disco outfits.

No disco themed bachelorette party is complete without a groovy playlist! It’s important to create a playlist that will get everyone up and dancing. The playlist should include classic disco hits from the 70s and 80s, as well as some modern remixes. Some popular songs to include are “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees, “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor, and “Le Freak” by Chic.
To make things easier, there are plenty of pre-made disco playlists available on music streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. These playlists are curated by experts and feature a mix of classic and modern disco hits.
For those who want to take their dancing skills to the next level, hiring a dance instructor for the party is a great idea. The instructor can teach everyone some classic disco moves like the Hustle, the Electric Slide, and the YMCA.
Another option is to take a dance class before the party. Many dance studios offer disco-themed dance classes for groups. This is a fun way to learn some new moves and get everyone in the disco spirit before the party even starts.

This will create a fun and exciting atmosphere that everyone will enjoy.
