Planning A Bachelorette Party? Simple Steps To Success

If you’ve been tasked with organizing your best friend’s bachelorette party, you may be feeling excited and anxious all at the same time. You want to make sure that your best bud gets a great send off, and all the other guests have a fantastic time. But there’s so much to do, and where do you even start? If you’re under pressure to pull off the party of the year, don’t panic. Follow these simple steps to success.

Sort out your guest list
This should be a priority because you’ll need numbers to work out costs and location. Even if the rest of the weekend is a surprise, get the bride to give you the guest list. You don’t want to miss anyone out or include people who she wouldn’t have invited. Once you’ve got the list, set up a group on social media or send an online invitation. You may need to work out dates once you’ve got in touch with everyone.

Choose a destination
Do you want to go abroad? Are you organizing a mini break? Or would the bride rather do something low-key? Have a chat with her about the kinds of ideas she likes and start researching. When you’re planning a bachelorette party, there are loads of different options to consider. You may want to hire out an area of a restaurant and then go to a club for VIP treatment. The bride may dream of a relaxing spa weekend. Or you may want to venture further afield and book a villa by the sea for a few days. Weigh up the options and think about your party size and budget. If you’re on a tight budget, it’s probably not going to be possible to go abroad, but you can still organize something spectacular. If you know your friend would love a holiday, but it’s not affordable, why not rent out a beach house and recreate your own vacation? Split the cost of the rental between you and order in food and drinks. Play games, get a barbecue going and hit the beach for a late night singalong around the camp fire.

Be clear on costs
Cost is perhaps the most important concern for the organizer of the weekend. You don’t want people stressing out because they’re desperate to go, but they can’t afford it. Talk to others and come up with a figure, which suits everyone. Try and get a payment scheme set up so that people can transfer money over to you in installments. Give the guests plenty of notice, so that they can save.

Pay attention to detail
The little things often make all the difference when you’re planning a celebration. Ask everyone to bring along a small gift, such as a pair of earrings, some makeup or a pair of knickers. Encourage guests to send over photographs and messages so that you can order a personalized book. Cover the bride’s bed with rose petals and greet her with a glass of bubbly. Treat to her a little pampering and make sure she feels special.

Planning a party can be stressful, but it should also be fun! Follow these simple steps to get organized in advance and make sure everyone has an unforgettable weekend.
