Bachelorette parties are well-known for being unforgettable. It is essential to understand that not every bachelorette party involves shot glasses, but it doesn’t mean a tea party. The best celebrations are something in between.
Keep in mind that you want the party to be special and unique since you are celebrating the bride-to-be before the big event. However, planning the event can be challenging. But don’t worry as we have your back - so, take a deep breath and keep reading to make the process easier and funnier.
1. Make A Plan
Before you start planning the party, it is critical to remember that it is for the bride. Make sure to ask her specific questions such as:
- A crazy wild party or a casual dinner?
- A fancy dinner or spa day?
Once you know what the bride wants, you can settle the location for the party. It is an excellent idea to consider guests’ opinions if you think about doing some wild activities that might scare one of the attendees.
Make sure to pay attention to the bride’s preferences regarding games, food, and drinks. Please do your best to plan based on how she envisions the party going.
2. Take Time To Relax
Even though it seems like bachelorette parties need to be full of activities, make sure to relax. Do not over schedule, leave time to chat, travel to and from places, and wait if someone is running late.
The best memories are created just by being together and hanging out. Don’t stress yourself if something is taking longer than you expected since everything is going to be okay!
3. Stay On Budget
Since you are organizing the party, it is critical to stay within the budget. Discuss with the group a cost estimate for the activities and make sure everyone is on board with the expenses.
Try your best to align your plan to fit the smallest budget. An excelled idea is to request each of the guests to pay in advance for all activities, including:
- Activities, etc.
Always tell guests what is included in the payment. If, for any reason, there is money left after the event, make sure to return it to the guests.
4. Make The Invite List
Bachelorette parties are often for those closest to the bride and groom, so ask the bride who to invite. It is not a good idea to invite someone who is not invited to the wedding. Don’t think you have to invite everyone. It is okay if there are just a few people or a huge group.
5. Fun Activities
Remember, the most successful bachelorette parties pay attention to what the bride loves most. Here are some ideas you can plan for the celebration:
- Spa Day
- Games, such as:
- What’s on your phone?
- The newlywed game
- Scavenger hunt
- He said/She said
- Beer pong
- Drink if
- Photo Booths
Don’t forget to add some decorations to make the party extra-special. Also, it is a nice touch to give a parting gift.
Finally, make sure to ask for help. Once you have a plan, the guest list and a budget let people handle what they are good at. You don’t have to do it alone!
