Planning The Ultimate Bachelorette Party
When it comes to party planning, it’s almost never easy. And, let’s be honest, things only get more difficult if you’re planning that party for somebody else. A prime example of this is the Bachelorette party. In the run-up to her wedding, your friend is likely to be pretty stressed. This party, be it for a single night or a weekend, will be a good break for her. It is a time to hand over responsibility to somebody else. So you can’t let her down!
Whatever the specifics of the event, an incredible bachelorette party should have certain things in common. So, do the following to give your friend or family member a bachelorette party to remember!
Timing Is Everything
Give some careful thought to when you throw the party. Make sure that if it will be a late night, she doesn’t have to go to work the next day. Also, look at the proximity of the date to the wedding day. Too close as she may be too stressed to enjoy herself properly. Her mind may be preoccupied with last-minute wedding things. If possible, let her decide when she wants it to happen. Then try and fit everyone else in around that.
Who’s In Charge
Too many cooks can spoil the broth. This is especially true when it comes to organizing a bachelorette party! You can let everyone who will be attending have their say on different decisions. After all, you’ll need to organize the date, the location, and the activities. That’s not to mention everything else as well! Let everybody have their say, but ensure there is one person who can put their foot down and have the final say. If what you’re doing isn’t a surprise, let the bride-to-be be this person.
There are loads of brilliant ideas out there for batchelorette party games. The Mr and Mrs quiz is a popular one. You can also give the bride-to-be dares to complete! If suitable, have a drinking game one evening. Buy from an online liquor store to make doing so affordable. Also, how about a bingo with things like ‘five people laugh at once’, or ‘the bride mentions the groom’?
Combine Activity Styles
If you are having a long day of fun, or even a weekend, combine activity styles. This means that you can keep mixing up the fun. It also means that there is likely to be something that everyone attending will enjoy. So, you could start the day with an outdoor activity, like abseiling or canoeing. You can then end the day with something relaxing, like a massage or mani-pedi. In the middle, take lunch at a place with a wide variety on their menu. If you’re going away for a full weekend, you could do one day of crazy, adrenaline-filled activities. Then, spend the next day resting and recharging your batteries.
The Right Tone
While some parties can get kind of sordid, consider what will be suitable for your bride-to-be. If her mother and aunties are going to be there, she might not be comfortable doing the same activities she would with her friends.
