Do you want to organize a disco bachelorette party inspired by the atmosphere of the 70s? So, dust off the disco ball, mix up some favorite vintage cocktails, put on your glittery dress, play some ‘boogie-woogie’ music and you’re good to go.
These are some of the best ideas for disco bachelorette outfits and decorations for you to plan an event where the future bride will party like never before in the 70s style and have her last dance as a single lady.
Prepare these décor items to turn the place into a real 70s disco:
- Disco ball
- Tinsel curtains
- Vinyl records
- Neon glow sticks
- Sparkly confetti
To add more style to the 70s party, use bright tinsel curtains. You may consider ordering extra pairs as they will offset the quantities in the wedding decor checklist, and you may end up getting a quantity discount. They will get you that dazzle this disco bachelorette theme needs and are a super fun way to turn the place into disco heaven! You can easily find them online in metallic shades and you can use them for the perfect photo backdrop, or as door curtains to add a bit of ambiance when people walk in.
What’s one disco party without the legendary disco ball? It is the most essential element of this bachelorette theme and one of the most representative 70s decorations of the time, so do not hesitate to include it in different sizes and places since, together with the lights, they will create spectacular effects. Use them as they are, or put them on the tables as centerpieces, shiny disco pillows, balloons, or drinking glasses. The choice is limitless!
Regarding colors, let metallic shades and black dominate, and some small neon details accentuate the space. Decorate the space or room where you organize the disco-themed bachelorette party by making balloon arches, figures, and arrangements to create a purely festive atmosphere like a 70s party. You can add some big balloon letters saying ‘last disco’ along a diamond ring, champagne bottle, or star-shaped balloons to make it super catchy.
Get all girls some sparkly confetti poppers so you can all surprise the bride-to-be when she walks into her disco bachelorette party. Another groovy idea is vinyl records decoration used as banners, coasters, napkins, etc. Don’t forget about neon sticks! Place them next to each plate so the girls can make their own bracelets that will glow while they put their hands in the air and dance to the best disco hits.
Some of the disco bachelorette party decorations could double up as your wedding decor items especially if you are holding a wedding on a budget.
Keep in mind these clothing items when trying to find your best disco look:
- Bell-sleeved dresses
- Flowing wrap dress
- Mini skirt
- Fringed jacket
- Platform boots
- Curly hairstyle
- Bold makeup
- Colorful scarf
- Round-shaped sunglasses
When it comes to outfit choices, the disco bachelorette theme is all about sequins and bold colors. If you are a pants-type of girl, wear shiny high-waist flares in bright colors with a sexy crop top. Or go with a head-to-toe sequined jumpsuit with bell bottoms as well.
If you want to wear a dress, find a bell-sleeved one in a colorful pattern or full glitter. Put on a midi flowy wrap dress or some shiny mini skirt to show some leg and combine it with a cool fringed jacket. For a unique and bold statement, pair the outfit with knee-high platform boots, resulting in a combination of elegance and daring on the dance floor. Colors like fuchsia, coral, gold, or silver could not be missing from the outfits.
What about the hair? If you want to go full 70s disco style, curl your long hair to get those feather locks — a look that is great even for those hairstyles with thin hair. If you have naturally curly afro-style hair, keep it that way or, if you don’t, buy some afro wig to get that disco vibe.
A disco-themed bachelorette outfit would not be complete without some bold, shiny eyeshadow and blush nude lips.
Accessorize your look by wrapping some cool and colorful scarf on your head and putting on some big yellow or pink sunglasses in a round shape and you will have that full 70s glam.
Let these all-time-favorite retro hits play all night long while you girls boogie like there is no tomorrow:
- Bad Girls
- Ladies Night
- Disco Inferno
- I will survive
- Stayin’ Alive
- Boogie Wonderland
The key to any good party—and especially a 70s party—is the music. An atmosphere filled with fun, freedom, and dancing is what makes this golden theme different from all the other bachelorette party themes. Make sure the last disco bachelorette playlist includes hits like ‘Bad Girls’, ‘Ladies Night’ and ‘Disco Inferno’ which are the hymn of the disco bachelorette party, as well as the classics ‘I will survive’, ‘Stayin’ Alive’ and ‘Boogie Wonderland’.

Food and drinks
Keep these quick bites and drinks in mind for your dance brakes:
- Celery sticks
- Chocolate balls
It is very important that you invest in the decoration for a disco bachelorette party, but it is also essential that you take into account that the guests will need to reenergize with the most delicious food, so you have to make this right.
If you want it to be an easy task, hire the catering service of some professionals to prepare snacks and quick meals such as hamburger and hot dog sliders, pizza slices, shrimp canapés, meatballs, or celery sticks stuck in a cheese dip. The best thing will be to place everything in a buffet style so that everyone can serve themselves to what they want and eat when they get hungry.
Don’t miss out on the candy bar for the sweet tooth! If the star of the event — the future bride — is a fan of sweet treats, you can’t go without some cupcakes decorated with colorful sprinkles and a disco ball on top, tiny strawberry cheesecakes, and chocolate balls sprinkled with glittery dust. Nothing says more disco bachelorette theme than edible disco balls, right?
Hire a professional cocktail maker so that your disco-themed bachelorette party has all the elements to make you feel like you’re in a real 70s disco and let them prepare the most delicious and refreshing drinks. Think something creamy like Brandy Alexander or White Russian. If you want something more fruity, put Tequila Sunrise, Grasshopper, and of course Harvey Wallbanger on the cocktail menu list.
So gather all the necessary gadgets, set up all decor items, and surprise the future bride with a last disco bachelorette party — a night filled with delicious cocktails, retro music, and too much sparkle.
