Brides spend every waking moment thinking about and planning their big day. When they’ve finally finished their planning they need a break from it all, and to spend a little quality time with their girlfriends – that’s where the bachelorette party comes in.
Bridesmaids should plan a bachelorette party that suits the personality of the bride. If she loves to party, a night out at a club with some drinks would be ideal. If she’s more low-key, think about doing a spa day. Whatever you choose, the interests of the bride should be put first.
Not sure where to begin planning your bride’s bachelorette party? We’ve put together a few tips and venue ideas that can help you get started.
How to Plan a Bachelorette Party
Choose a date
First and foremost, you will want to choose a date. This can be a little more tricky than it sounds; you’ll have to find a day relatively close to the wedding but not too close, and something that works with the busy schedules of the bride and everyone she’d like to invite. It’s impossible to accommodate everyone, but try your best to choose a date that most people can work with, to ensure a good turn-out.
Pick a theme
Next, you will have to choose a theme. The theme can be inspired by the location of the wedding, or you can simply stick with the “bride-to-be” theme. If your bride is over-the-top she might appreciate a little extra thought in this area. Think about a tiki theme, murder mystery, or even something like Moroccan nights.
Pick a budget
Whether you’ll be footing the bill yourself or splitting it with others, you’ll want to establish a budget before you begin planning. This will help you keep things under control and plan within your means. For example, you wouldn’t want to plan a trip to Las Vegas only to find out halfway through, you really can’t afford everything. Establishing a budget ahead of time will ensure everything stays on track.
Plan the activities
Once you have a budget in place, you can begin planning the itinerary for the party. Whether this includes bottle service at a nightclub, a relaxing spa day, or high tea in the afternoon will depend on the theme that you’ve chosen, and the interests of your bride.
Choose a venue
After you choose the type of activities for the bachelorette party, the last step is choosing a venue. You’ll want to pick a place that has availability for your specified dates, and that can accommodate your plans. Not sure where to begin with your search for a venue?
