The maid (or matron) of honor is typically given the all-important job of planning the bachelorette party – the bride’s last chance to have fun as a single woman. The party planner’s job is to create a fun, memorable, and (ideally) once-in-a-lifetime event, which can be a pretty daunting task. Fortunately, expert party planners have shared the following advice.
Consider The Bride
First of all, it’s important to take the bride’s interests and personality into account. The bachelorette party should be her ideal ladies’ night out. Some brides prefer a more low-key evening, like a wine-tasting party, while others want the wildest night possible. For the latter type of bride, nothing could be more exciting than on-stage seats at the best all male show in texas. Surrounded by the hottest male dancers, the bride and her friends will have the night of their lives.
Another valuable piece of advice is to make reservations well in advance. This is especially important if the bachelorette party is a weekend event requiring a hotel stay and air travel. By buying all the seats or rooms at once, party planners can often get a group discount that will save everyone money.
And speaking of money, the party planner should take everyone’s budget into consideration, not just her own. It can be awkward to ask directly, but it may be helpful to talk to the bride to get her insights as to what guests may be able to afford. If the festivities will be out of someone’s price range, the party planner may need to change plans. Group discounts can help make tickets more affordable, but they’re not always available. Regardless, it’s helpful to include the final price on the invitation so that every guest will know exactly what she is agreeing to.
For a weekend-long event, it’s important to have a fairly detailed itinerary so that attendees will know when to be ready and where to go for different activities. However, it’s better not plan every minute. Guests will need some time to relax and reconnect or get to know each other in an informal setting. Some guests may also need time on their own in order to recharge.
