Planning an unforgettable bachelorette party is not as easy as most people think. There is a lot of communication and organization involved. This can be a real challenge when dealing with multiple bridesmaids. The best way to stay on top of your bachelorette party is to start early. This will give you ample time for research as well as flexible feedback. Here are a couple of things you need to do when planning a bachelorette party.
Time it just right
Just like with wedding planning, a bachelorette party is not something you should rush. You cannot wake up one day and inform your bridesmaids that you are having the party the next day. Although there are no hard rules on when you should throw your bachelorette party, you need to plan it at least a month in advance. The best timeframe for the party is also a maximum of a month in advance of your wedding. You don’t want the party to be so close to the big day that the bride will look stressed or too busy to be having any fun. Even so, setting the party too far away will be anticlimactic.
Compile a guest list
While it is good for the bachelorette party to be a surprise, you should ask the bride-to-be who she would like to invite to the party. Go ahead and track the contact details of the people the bride would love to invite. A good rule to remember here is never to invite someone who is not invited to the wedding itself. Don’t forget to invite the bride’s future sisters-in-law.
Pick a good venue
Where will the dinner be? You need a venue that is not too hard to find and one that offers an excellent atmosphere. If it will be a summer wedding Toronto, don’t be afraid to pick the outdoor venues. Having a party in a lovely summer garden will be impressive. Select a venue that takes bachelorette parties. The last thing you want is to be interrupted by the management for being too loud.
Everything needs to be about the bride
Some people borrow their bachelorette party ideas from movies, an idea which does not always work for everyone. When making plans, you have to consider the personality of the bride. What does she love doing? Does she love karaoke or surf lessons? If you don’t know exactly what she loves, just go ahead and ask her. The last thing you want is for your plans to bore her.
Have a budget
As much as giving the bride the most fun is the order of the day, you need to remain within a budget. Know how much money the bridesmaids can contribute and make your plans around the available funds. The bride must never pay for anything.
These simple tips will get you started on the right foot when planning a bachelorette dinner party. Don’t forget about transportation and establish guidelines for social media. Know what the bride is and is not cool about posting on social media.
