Respect the bride’s wishes
A big party till 5am with lots of alcohol and dancing might sound ideal for some, but it’s important as a maid of honor and best friend to take the wishes and the personality of the bride into account. So, before you start the whole procedure, sit down and have a talk with your friend about her desires and expectations.
Where is the party taking place?
You will choose the venue, depending on the kind of party you want to throw. Are you looking for a way to unwind with your best friends? Then book a whole day at your favorite spa and enjoy a relaxing beauté before the wedding! Do you want to party like the good old days in college? Then choose your favorite nightclub and dance the night away! And, if the bride is open to the idea, why not take it up a notch and invite a stripper!
Before you move forward to any further preparations, you need to have a conversation with your bestie about who will be invited to the bachelorette party. The guestlist will help you determine both the type of entertainment you are going for and the budget you will need, while also helping you avoid any misunderstandings!
No matter what your plans are for this bachelorette party, one thing is for sure: yall will want to capture those moments forever! You are the one to decide whether hiring a professional photographer is necessary or not, but make sure that you have everybody’s permission before you upload any pictures on the internet. A great idea would be to print out the night’s highlights and put them in a cute album. Add some sappy stuff about your friendship between the pictures and BAM! You have the perfect addition for your friend’s wedding gift! Much better than a simple card, don’t you think?
In case you go for a more private type of party at home, a couple of games-activities will take your bachelorette party to the next level! If you decide to hire a professional stripper for the night, this weight will be lifted off your shoulders, since it’s part of his job, but if you are after something more chill, a couple of board games, a game of classic beer pong or even the traditional games that have been taking place at slumber parties since forever, will provide your party with lots of fun and laughter!
We hope that the tips above were helpful! Remember, the number one tip for the perfect bachelorette party is to have fun, so relax and enjoy it!
