Congratulations! You are now the second most important guest at the wedding, meaning you are one of the bridesmaids. This means that you were tasked to deal with the whole bachelorette party and in this case, organizational matters might fall a little too difficult on you. Below is a short step-by-step guide on how to plan the perfect party for the future bride.
Discuss with the bride, before anything else
This is the most important thing you should manage, before starting to plan your unforgettable party. Discuss with her and see if she has any special demands. See if she has any kind of restrictions. Make sure that you find out which is the specific date that she prefers this party to take place – if she has one. This will help you form a better idea of what you should expect from the process and what the bride’s expectations are.
Pick a theme
Picking a theme will make the whole process significantly easier. This will make it easier for you when it comes to personalizing the T-Shirts, decorations and even menu and beverages. With the theme in mind, you can start creating a timeline that suits her demands. Download a Bachelorette Party Checklist and try to closely follow that. It will make the entire process more manageable and more fluent.
Pick a venue
The bride’s favorite bar or restaurant, an amusement park, all these work, but you have to pick a venue and make reservations as quickly as possible. This will allow you to find the space to accommodate everybody, on the certain date that you established with the bride-to-be.
Personalised T-Shirts, obligatory!
What would a bachelorette party be without those custom t-shirts? Find a company that is able to professionally deal with this. You will have to find the message yourself, or you can leave it to the professionals. They have dealt with such demands in the past, most likely, and depending on the type of party that you’ll have, they will be able to create some designs that will place the future bride on the center of attention and will make everybody else look spotless.
Of course, you want to previously discuss this with the bride. Make sure that you inform everybody on that list in an original and fun way. You could also create some personalized invitations with the same company dealing with your custom t-shirts. This will most likely turn out to be a more affordable strategy.
Collect the money
A common misconception is that the main bridesmaid will have to pay for the bachelorette party. You will have to do this only for the future bride, but you can politely ask everybody else to chip in and pay their share. Just let everyone know the estimated cost, before!
This simple step-by-step guide will allow you to deal in an effortless and fun way with your main bridesmaid duties, at least when it comes to the bachelorette party. Make sure that the whole party follows the bride’s demands and everything should be fine.
