Where do you start? If you are determined to be the one to take care of your farewell, surely you have many questions about its planning. Planning a party that satisfies the bride and also the others is no easy task. You need to know what she likes and what she dislikes and plan it carefully. We show you some key points so that you do not miss any important detail.
Distribute the Tasks
You will have to be aware of the venue of the farewell and have a list with the name and telephone number of all the contacts involved in the plan: friends, family and suppliers involved. This does not mean that you have to take care of everything, you can divide the functions among the other participants: one looks for the transport, another looks at accommodation, another takes care of the activities, etc. So all your friends will collaborate and get to know each other better.
Who to Invite?
Each bride has their own preferences, some want a bachelorette party only with friends, others with relatives (both hers and her partner’s) and others who prefer to invite the bride and groom and their friends as well. Choose the type of farewell that you like the most and make a list with the names of the people that cannot be missed. Once you have the complete list, you can create a WhatsApp group with all the guests. It will be much easier to agree!
Think about the personality of the guests and try to plan something that really makes everyone happy, be it a spa session, a makeup workshop, parachuting, a getaway to a tropical paradise, a brunch, a pyjama party, a full on dressed up girls’ night out etc. Pick the activity the bride would enjoy the most. If she enjoys dressing up in a full length jumpsuit and going out to party, then go with that option. If she is more of an introvert and likes quiet weekends, take a trip to the lake cabin; just the bride and her closest girls. It will make her feel more relaxed and comfortable in such a private place.
Once you have talked to the group about the budget and have reached an agreement, you can start planning the activities and the days that the celebration will last. Keep in mind that the budget must cover everything related to the party: costumes, invitations, place, transportation and gifts. Don’t miss a thing!
When Is It Celebrated?
Typically, a bachelorette party is held one month to three weeks before the wedding. If you rush until the last day, you will surely be very overwhelmed with the last preparations and if you do it too soon, it loses the meaning of parting. Decide if it will be a whole weekend, one day, two, and three. Ideally, you should propose several dates together and then choose the weekend in which more people can be.
