Hey there, girlfriend! Thanks so much for stopping by my website and blog. If you’re new here – welcome! If you’ve been following me for a while, then you probably know that most of my wedding-related posts are aimed at brides (hey, brides!). But today’s blog post is for all my maid of honors and bridesmaids out there. Today, we’re talking all about how to plan the perfect bachelorette party.
When planning the perfect bachelorette party, you’ll want to keep these helpful tips in mind:
Choose the date(s) and location well in advance
People are busy and calendars fill up fast. The dates and location are obviously something that the bride will ultimately choose, so start by gathering her thoughts and looking at her schedule. Just know that you probably won’t find a date that works well with every single guest you are inviting, and that’s okay.
The party is for the bride
Know her personality, what she likes, and what she does not like. Keep all of that in mind once you actually start planning things such as the hotel or Air BnB, activities, etc.
Mix it up
Make sure the entire weekend isn’t just one big drinking fest or one big snooze fest. Be sure to mix in different types of activities. For example, if you’re going to Savannah, Georgia for the bachelorette (using this example because it’s where we’re going for my friend’s bachelorette next week!), you might want to do something low-key, such as strolling the streets and shopping during the day, and then maybe something planned such as a reserved dinner and out for drinks (at a couple of bars that you did some research on) at night. Just remember not to include too many activities, which leads me to my next point…
Don’t forget about downtime
Make sure you plan some things ahead of time and leave some unplanned downtime as well. This is especially important if you have a large group of ladies going on the trip.
Be considerate and mindful of different personalities
Speaking of having a large gang of girls on the bachelorette trip, just be mindful of all the different personalities that might be mixing together. Try to just sit back, relax, and have an amazing time with your girls! Even if you might not all be a part of the same “group,” always remember to be nice and have fun!
Send out a rough itinerary
That way everyone knows what to pack. Be sure to include anything else, such as costs (if you know those) and anything else people should plan on bringing, such as a piece of lingerie to gift the bride (if you’re doing that), so on and so forth.
Remember why you’re there
It’s the bride’s weekend, not yours! You’re there to have a great time, but it’s for the bride, so just remember that 🙂
