How to Plan a Bachelorette Party
When it comes to the bachelorette party you are throwing for someone, do you know what to do? Figuring out the entirety of a huge party and event like that can be a lot. The best way to do it is to know the person you are throwing it for inside and out and do exactly what you think they would want. Also, some brides to be cannot help themselves and they loudly hint at what they would like so you don’t have to think too hard anyway.
The important thing to do is nail down the big details of the party. This can be easy if working on your own and difficult if you have an unrealistic partner in play on this one. Planning your bachelorette party doesn’t have to be hard if you have a good idea of what you want to do (again, really what the bride wants to do) for the party. Then you just need to start locking down reservations and travel. Read on to find out more about what you should do when planning a party like this and get the party started!
Are you going somewhere? The destination can be a huge part of the trip. Maybe you bride wants to go to wine country in Napa, or beach it up in Miami, or live it up in Vegas! Often this means that the geographics of your destination will determine a lot of what you do. For instance, try avoiding eating beignets at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans or not having a cocktail and dancing to music in the streets! The destination can often be the party!
Once you’ve got the place down, it’s time to book hotels. You also may want to book other things ahead of time, whether they be tours, cars, tastings, dinner reservations, a show, and more! You don’t want to have the spa booked and then be like– oh no, I forgot to book the spa! That’s going to cause friction! Don’t do that. Book early, call to confirm the reservation or booking, and you’ll be good.
Also be sure that you have an exact idea of who is coming. How many people are attending for sure is going to play into everything, even if you don’t want it to. So have the reservations and be sure that you have confirmed with each person. And it doesn’t hurt to individually call them up and confirm, especially with people who were on the fence previously. Advise people of what they will need and the itinerary so they’ll pack accordingly.
Don’t forget to send out invites to the people that are coming. Don’t send the full itinerary to the bride unless she wants it, but make sure everyone else knows. Gifts for everyone who comes is the perfect way to celebrate mid-trip. By the way, try to relax when planning all of this and take care of yourself as it can be stressful! If you can pull it off, kudos to you.
Lastly, be sure to have fun and enjoy the event and big party! It’s all about the bride, but pat yourself on the back for delivering a great experience– one last bash before the big day. Thanks for reading, and good luck!
