You’ve been given the giant task of planning your best friend’s bachelorette party. But you’ve never planned one before. Where do you begin? How do you make it fun? How many people will be coming? These are just some of the many questions you will need to consider but trust me; it doesn’t have to be stressful. Here is a useful how-to guide to making the bachelorette party you plan a roaring success.

Consider the Bride

While you want everybody to have a great time, the bachelorette party needs to incorporate the bride’s likes and interests. Don’t plan something she wouldn’t normally enjoy doing. If she likes the great outdoors, why not plan a picnic in her favorite place or try something new like horseback riding? If she’s an outgoing person, try a karaoke party featuring songs from her childhood. It’s the personal touches that will maker her party memorable.

Handle the planning individually

It’s important that while the bride is busy choosing wedding gowns and flowers, she is not hassled with the party plans. It’s nice for the bride to be totally surprised by what you’ve planned. Choose the best means of communication between you, the bridesmaids and anybody else who is invited. Email is an easy way of posting website links and ideas that everyone can respond to. Make yourself responsible for gathering all the relevant information. Too many people doing the planning can cause confusion and stress. Delegate different responsibilities if it makes your life easier. Always listen to the other attendees ideas and be patient. We all have busy lives, and it might take time for people to respond. The key is getting started as soon as possible to allow plenty of time to make arrangements. Set a budget everybody is happy with as soon as possible and stick to it.

Create an itinerary

An itinerary is an essential part of a bachelorette party, particularly if going for a weekend break. Choose a theme for the party and create an itinerary pack that relates to this theme. You could also have matching save the date cards to help the guests plan for the party. Include all the important times and activities you have planned for the weekend. Try to vary the activities so it’s a different experience each time. You don’t need to plan for every second of the day. Allow some time in between activities to relax and unwind. An itinerary will make all of the guest feel more prepared and comfortable knowing you have everything planned. Plans can change so always have some backup ideas on hand too.

Involve the Groom

A beautiful and sentimental touch to a bachelorette party is a gift or message from the groom. It lets the bride know that their other half is thinking of them while they are out having fun with their friends. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. If you’re planning on a weekend away, give the groom your itinerary and the address of the venue. Get him to send a huge bouquet of flowers with a handwritten card attached to her room. It will be a wonderful surprise and will become a highlight of her party.

I hope you’ve found this how-to guide useful. You should now have the confidence to throw the Bride a bachelorette party she will never forget.
