Many brides look back on their bachelorette parties with the same nostalgia as the wedding itself, so getting it right is super important. If you’re hoping to throw a bachelorette party to remember for the right reasons, here’s how to do it.
Consult the bride
It’s so important not to just think you know what the bride wants - ask her outright! After all, it’s her special occasion. Checking in with the bride and getting an idea of what she wants will help the planning process go so much more smoothly and ensure you don’t miss any of the things she’s been dreaming of.
Plan the details
Planning an entire bachelorette party can get chaotic pretty quickly. You’re responsible for everything from flights and accommodation to day events and night outings. Make sure you have a system that works, whether that’s a diary or a spreadsheet, and don’t forget to plan the little details that will make the party extra special.
Stick to the budget
Even though you undoubtedly want the very best for the bride, you need to stick to the budget. If you make things overly expensive, some of the girls will have to drop out. You don’t want to have to ditch a couple of activities to ensure everyone can afford to come to the party so communicate with the group to create a realistic budget from the start.
Get your game on
Games are a great way to break the ice and get the bachelorette party started with a bang. Whether it’s daring pre-drinks like Never Have I Ever or fun, topical games while you’re out on the town, be sure to factor games into the schedule.
Own the playlist
Music will make this a bachelorette party to remember. Whether you’re in the limo heading to your big night out or enjoying canapes and cocktails at the hotel before a day of pampering, you need to get the music right. Getting everyone from the bridal party to contribute to the playlist is a great way to make sure everyone’s dancing.
Ask all of the girls to snap away throughout the day or night, and create a groupchat to share photos. You can then decide which to upload to the gram and which stay firmly in the scrapbook.
While it’s easy to copy what other girls get up to during bachelorette parties, making things extra special by doing something you know the bride will love is what it’s all about. Whether it’s a trip to her favorite cocktail bar or a night of flamenco dancing, going the extra mile is a great way to personalize the party and make the celebration even more special.
