The bachelorette party is a place for the bride to have fun with her closest girlfriends, to relax and go wild - outside the stresses and nerves of her forthcoming wedding day. It’s usually arranged by the Maid of Honor with favored female friends, bride-approved.
KEEP THE DETAILS SECRET!
Generally, the bride will be hoping for one and dropping hints or questioning her bridesmaids but keep mum! It will be worth it just to see her not having to control everything and just let go and have fun.
SET A DATE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE
Women get busy schedules really quickly so best to get a ‘Save-The-Date’ in quicktime to prevent lots of to and froing with rearrangements and ‘I can’t make that weekend but I can make the 8th’.
FIND A GEOGRAPHICAL MIDPOINT
If the girlfriends are spread out across the country, choose somewhere that involves an equal distance of travel. The cost of the bachelorette party should be spread across all the invitees so try to keep it as fair as possible.
CHOOSE A VENUE WHERE THE BRIDE WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE AND FREE
If the party is at a popular location or out of town (a rock concert, a beach house, a cabaret, a male strippers’ joint), make reservations, order tickets and deal with accommodation. At a bachelorette party, there will most probably be alcohol and there will be some bachelorette cavorting, so plan responsibly. Think about transportation and book it early on after checking out competing rates.
SEND OUT INVITATIONS INFORMALLY
By evite or another paperless service - just ensure you get those RSVPs in and are able to start making bookings and deposits if required.
STAY AT HOME BACHELORETTE PARTIES CAN BE JUST AS MUCH FUN!
Just make sure it is personalized and fun, help the Maid of Honor plan refreshments and activities.Distribute tasks and responsibilities: games, decorations, booze-buying, booking of talent, karaoke set-up, the scavenger hunt with a list of naughty missions, purchase of bite-me candy, the novelty veil, blow-ups or tiara and other innuendo-d props plus the bonafide surprise element!
KEEP THE DEBRIEFING OF THE BRIDE TO THE DAY BEFORE!
Literally - she should have a totally hands-off stance and be taken on the ride of her single life! Remind the guests of the meeting place, time, back-up contact details. Then just get plenty of sleep and take your chlorella well in advance!
