Once someone gets married, almost all of the events they attend from that moment will be as a duo. That is to say, they will experience almost everything with their partner. But, when it comes to doing something alone, there is one specific event before the big day: the bachelorette party! If you want to know how to plan a bachelorette party, you have come to the right place.
Let’s go into detail with some tips and advice on how to plan the pre-wedding party!
Who should plan a bachelorette party? What is the checklist of things to be organized?
Traditionally there is one person in charge of planning a bachelorette party: the maid of honor. However, as trends evolve, in most instances everyone close to the bride wants to have active role in planning her bachelorette party. One of the first things you must do is speak to the bride about whether she wants to have a party in the first place, then prepare the guest list and start calling some people to invite them!
When you are planning a bachelorette party, there are some things you need to take into consideration. One of them is availability. This is set early in the process of organizing, since you would have to make sure everyone can make it on the dates you have chosen. This is where you also consider having a one-day party or a bachelorette party that will last for a whole weekend.
The planning flow will eventually lead you to the funding stage. In short, if you want to organize an unforgettable event, you only need some mindful budget planning – regardless of the funds, you can pull off a stylish bachelorette party. It is a tradition that all attendees (except the bride-to-be) cover the costs for the evening/weekend. This is where you and the guests should look into your budget and the costs you intend to cover.
Going into details
Once you have gone over the initial numbers (guest list, financial aspect, date), it is time to get down with the party details! Here are some tasks that you will need to cross off your list.
These four tips will help you achieve the perfect bachelorette party!
1. Find an excellent location
book the perfect spot to host the night or weekend.
2. List of activities
