The task of planning a bachelorette party is usually handed over to the maid of honor. However, sometimes this can be taken over by all the bridesmaids if they would like to. The objective of the party would be to ultimately give the bride to be an exciting and memorable night. Getting the main aspects of the task sorted will help you proceed with ease. Here are a few steps given below:
Decide on the date
A hens party tends to be held around 2 weeks prior to the wedding. However, if the party is not a surprise to the bride, then getting her suggestions to fix a date might be the most ideal option as it should be a time convenient most importantly for her. Either way, this is as far as the bride can get in terms of any involvement of the party. Everything else planned for her in the agenda should be kept a surprise.
Budget and guest list
Both these factors go hand in hand as the number of guests you invite for the party will eventually decide on the budget as for most bachelorette parties, a contribution is made from each invitee towards the party. However, if you have a pre planned budget set, then most of your expenses will be decided on the budget in hand. In that case, private function rooms and even entertainment can be reserved early to get promotional discounts and so on.
When it comes to entertainment in a bachelorette party, this can greatly vary from person to person. Keep in mind that your main focus for the night would be to make sure that the bride is having a good time so as a maid of honor or bridesmaid, consider what she would like and enjoy most. Secondly, it would also be helpful to make sure that all the guests’ likes and dislikes are taken in to consideration as well because certain types of entertainment might be offensive to some. Sometimes, the bride’s expectations might be completely different to that you plan so ideas, suggestions and advice must be heeded at all times.
After deciding on the budget and entertainment, having a theme for the party with various bachelorette accessories and décor will set the mood immediately to fun and exciting times. You can also include custom clothes, tiaras and sashes to form an intimate bond with the close set of invitees that are attending. Not to mention dressing up is a great way to have fun at any age!
