Planning a bachelorette can be overwhelming, but breaking up the tasks and timelines can help simplify. The best way to de-stress and make the process fun is to keep in mind the following:
1. What does the bride want?
3.Coordinate the logistics
4. Add special touches
5. Confirm details
What does the bride want?
You'll want to talk to the bride up front about the type of party she wants--destinations and timeline included. What is she comfortable with? Is she a bashful bride who may not want a crazy strip tease from a scantly clad police officer or is that right up her ally? Who does she want at the event?
Carefully go through the list together and make sure you get all emails and names (especially those close friends who aren't part of the bridal party).
Spa day and night in hotel
Local airbnb getaway
Festival or concert
Beach or lake day
Next on your bachelorette party checklist is spreading the info. Send an email with a custom graphic, even, to make the event super personalized, with all relevant date and location information.
What to Do:
Send a Save-the-Date Email
Be Open About Budget Range, Time Commitments
Coordinate the logistics & budget
This is where the planning details get real. Once you have a tentative headcount, you will be tasked with booking all of the hotspots, making calls to vendors, and coordinating costs.
Traditionally, each bachelorette attendee pays their own way through the celebration and also chips in to cover the cost of the bride. If the bachelorette party is one night of dinner or drinks, it’s a nice gesture, but not entirely necessary, to follow suit. If the bachelorette party is a getaway with a big price tag it's more to be negotiated whether or not the bride pays her own way or not. Keep in mind the expendable income of everyone involved as to keep drama at a minimum.
Create Those Special Touches
If throwing an Instagram-worthy day is on your to-do list, then now is the time to compile the essentials that will make your bash the envy of your social media followers.
First, narrow down the theme and then pick up coordinating swag and decor that will delight the bride. Having a gift box or tote bag filled with gifts for the bride and guests will make your guests giddy and appreciative. Makes the perfect start to your event!
