A bachelorette party is something that every bride looks forward to. It is a time for the bride-to-be to let loose before the wedding stress kicks in. When planned well, it can end on a memorable note.
If you and your friends have been tasked with organizing a party, here are some tips to ensure you make it a night to remember.
- Get a clear idea of what the bride wants
Being the party planner, it’s your job to ask the bride-to-be and understand exactly what she wants. Though you may want to surprise her with a few things, consider her personality. After all, it is her day, and so, things must be planned in a way which pleases her. It does not matter if you have a better idea, you should do everything in your power to work with her requests. The last thing you would want is an unhappy bride. Let her preferences guide you throughout your planning and execution process.
- Plan ahead of time
You will most likely be tempted to wait until the absolute last minute for friends and relatives to arrive, but you shouldn’t be blamed for the bride being hung-over or tired on her big day. The best thing to do is to pick a date a week or two before the big day and inform people two to three weeks before the party. You should also book the venue beforehand to avoid any last-minute hassles. If you are considering multiple venues, try and keep the number reasonable and also consider how everyone will get to the venue and back, and from one venue to another.
- Book a reliable medium of transportation
Booking a limousine or a party bus for your bachelorette party is a good thing to do for several reasons. It is a fun way to celebrate the occasion and keeps everyone together the entire time. Hiring a chauffeured limousine service also ensures everybody has a safe trip between locations and back home at the end of the night. Most limousine rental companies also offer packages which include a full bar, unlimited stops and many other amenities. Remember to make an early booking to ensure you have transportation for the entire evening.
- Always have a plan—B
It’s essential to have a backup plan for your bachelorette party as anything could go wrong at the last minute. For example, if you have a beach party planned, the weather could become unfavourable, a flight may be delayed, a friend could encounter a work assignment last minute etc. Any of these could make it impossible for you to continue with the plan. A plan-B ensures that you don’t get stranded if your original plan somehow doesn’t work out. This safety precaution can also save you from any last-minute headaches.
- Don’t forget the gifts
Whatever the mood or theme of your bachelorette party is, adding gifts is a nice touch. Depending on the bride, guests can all chip in for a spa treatment for her, or get her a few gag gifts. Alternatively, you can think of something else that is personal and thoughtful and the bride will surely use. You may also take suggestions from her family for ideas.
Planning a bachelorette party, either for yourself or someone else is a lot of work. However, rule number one is to have fun. Booking a luxury chauffeured limousine service ensures you have one less thing to worry about when planning the event.
