It’s time to put aside the formal wedding planning and have some fun…Yes, we are talking about the bachelorette party! One night that the bride and all her close friends look forward to is bachelorette night. Strictly a girls’ night out or in, the bachelorette is the perfect way to pamper the bride and give everyone a chance to let loose and relax. Unlike the bridal shower, this one’s for your peer group only, since bachelorettes are decidedly naughty! It’s a time for the bride to have one last night of ‘single’ fun before she ties the knot.
Normally the bride’s best friend or maid of honor plans the shindig and everyone chips in. However if you are a bride that prefers doing the organising, make sure you have your best friend with you and plan a night nobody will forget. You could also include your wedding planner in the party prep if you are having something on a bigger scale. Here are a few tips to help you put together a fun bachelorette party –
Fix up dates well in advance. Make sure you discuss it with all the girl’s coming. It’s important that everyone whom the bride is really close to can make it.
Discuss potential venues or activities and make sure everyone is okay with the cost. Everyone will have to cover the bride’s expenses too. Factor in expenses like those for food, drinks, transport and gifts.
If you are planning a party for your friend, make sure it’s centered around an activity she enjoys or something that she might want to try like a belly dancing class or a spa party. Make sure everyone is comfortable with the activities planned
If the budgets are tight, plan something fun at home. Organise some fun dance music and get bachelorette games and ideas online. Simple stuff like colorful decorations or a fun theme can make a home affair really enjoyable.
Designate – A few people can take care of different aspects of the party like arranging for the food, decorating or buying the beverages.
You could consider having a spa party which is always popular…because let’s face it every girl loves to be pampered! Many salons and spas have group packages or try and find beauticians who can home. Do something that everyone can do together with the bride like get manicures and pedicures or get your make-up done. Even a girls’ night out at the bride’s favorite nightclub or bar is a good idea. Wear your prettiest dress, biggest smile and paint the town red! Contact us at Marry Me weddings if you need any help with planning your bachelorette party!
