So you’ve been assigned the job of planning your girl’s bachelorette party – no pressure right?
Wrong. It’s a lot of responsibility that can be overwhelming at times. A lot of people see bachelorette parties happen in movies and on tv shows and assume that it’s as simple as going to a club, but it’s so much more than that.
If you want to do it properly, then it means doing a lot of planning in advance.
Here’s how to ensure you get it right, and plan something special that the bride-to-be will enjoy.
First of all, you need to know that it can get pricey, so you’ll need to think about all the things you will need to purchase. This means the food, drinks, venue, outfits (depending on whether or not you have a theme), and transportation. Of course, you’re not expected to pay for everything yourself – but the bachelorette shouldn’t pay for anything either – the day is all about her remember. Your job includes going around collecting funds from all the other girls. So be realistic with the final number, and then split it all equally with everyone else.
Now you need to come up with the overall idea. Are you going to start in the evening? Or do you want to make a whole day of it and end up with one of those dream bachelorette parties like male revue?
This is one of those important days for girls (and guys), not because, as they say, it’s the last night of freedom, but it’s a great bonding moment for all the girls involved, and it ‘s a celebration of the bride-to-be’s new journey into marriage!
It’s the time for the bride-to-be really appreciates her friends, and the relationships that you have before she shares the rest of her life with her partner. So coming up with an idea that makes the bride-to-be beam, is your end goal here.
Do something that you know she would love to do.
Then you can start thinking about a theme. This is where it gets fun, because you can really push the boundaries here, and no one will bat an eye because it’s the bachelorette party.
If you want to waltz down the street with all the girls dressed up as Disney princesses – you can.
Again, think about what the bride to be really loves, and base it all around that.
Maybe she has a crazy obsession with the color purple, or blue, or orange, so then you can come up with outfits that show that off. Or maybe you have an unconventional bride-to-be on your hands that loves the darker side of life, so dress everyone up as sexy vampires before you go out!
The Bigger Picture
A lot of people can get caught up in the act of planning. They end up watching something on tv and doing all the ‘typical’ bachelorette party antics, but that may not be what your bachelorette wants.
Don’t be selfish and just do things that you or the other girls would enjoy, because at the end of the day it isn’t about any of you – it’s all about her, so give her the send off that she deserves.
