5 Tips for a Successful Bachelorette Party

You’ve found Mr. Right, he’s popped the question & you said YES!

As the bride, you’re getting the steps rolling on the wedding planning, among them is Bachelorette Party Ideas.

Now, I no what you are thinking,

Strippers,  naughty party favors, hangovers, etc…

The problem:

You’ve got alot of acquaintances that are eager to help you celebrate this time-honored tradition. But the problem is, how can you coordinate a day that’s going to work for everyone?

Here’s a few helpful hints on how:

• Start a group on your social media for your event. Different platforms allow for better communication for all. Keep in mind many of your older participants may need help learning how to access certain social media platforms. Or some may not be online and thus need some type of verbal communication.

• Invite as many people to join your “social media” group event as possible. For someone in another city, you’ll be surprised at the effort they show for this occasion.

• Social media allows for you to start communicating and throwing a few possible dates around. Please be patient. People’s schedules are tight. They only check their social media accounts in the evening or night. This platform is awesome! For example, Instagram allows video stories and even “stickers” that you can add to them for fun!

• Once you’ve targeted a more favorable date for all, please don’t be disappointed when a few friends cannot attend due. This is not personal! For example, Sarah’s sister already had her knee surgery scheduled. Look at the bright side, they’re looking at your BIG DAY as the “sure thing” on their social calendar. And don’t forget, maybe that last-minute pop-up is your bff from high school who surprised you!

Getting a Venue for Your Bachelorette Party

Great, we got the date down, and hopefully an estimated time. But what to do? Now you’re asking your friends if they’ll participate in the event you’ve chosen. Maybe you’ve decided to sky-dive but your cousin Lara just got over the flu.

Sit down for a minute to decide what activity is going to allow the most number of participants. I know you may have decided to for-go a bachelorette “party” and instead wanted a “bachelorette shopping weekend.” Always be aware of your guests and what they’re comfortable doing or able to do financially.

If your wedding is large, maybe the bridesmaids are looking at budgeting for the dress and extra expenses already.

The five-letter word “M-O-N-E-Y”

We’ve talked about what you want to do for your bachelorette party but let’s consider everyone’s financial status. For the crowd that may still be in college or recent grad, every penny counts. Although your parents are helping finance the wedding, the bridal-party participants appreciate the consideration.

Think about this. Custom-tailored bridesmaids dresses, matching shoes and accessories along with the hairstylist, bridal shower gift, wedding gift… And now let’s include the cost of the bachelorette activity. It’s always best to try not to break the bank on the bachelorette party.

It’s a bit uncomfortable for the bridesmaid to tell the bride that she’s not getting paid until next week and cannot attend the pre-bachelorette dinner, nail salon and then nightclub. It is your special day but we like to have as many people participating in your special activity as well.

Get ready with a designated driver or Uber

Plan in advance

It’s “Girl’s Night” outing for your bachelorette event…maybe you decide to have a few drinks to celebrate with your besties. No worries, with reliable transportation services such as Lyft, Uber, party limos/buses and even taxis, you are doing the right thing by ensuring all guests make it home safely. If you’re watching your budget, get a reliable friend as your “designated driver.”

Start Familiarizing Everyone in Advance

Get everyone familiar with “who’s who” before the event. Send a guest list and what relation they have with you. Example: Sara (best friend), Jackie (co-worker), etc. This way, there isn’t the awkward, “Who is that?” Feelings get hurt when people don’t recognize the “maid of honor” and her efforts.

Or, maybe someone needs to ask the maid of honor a “wedding-related” question so that they don’t bother the bride (who obviously has ten-thousand things she must worry about.)

Remember that social media is your friend. Sharing photos of who’s who before the event will also help bridge that gap and start getting everyone acquainted with each other.

Final Thoughts

Good luck on your bachelorette event. Remember that a great mixer involves an activity where not only are you entertained but also can visit and talk.

Take for example, a painting party option. This party idea allows for fun painting activities while visiting with guests and enjoying some wine and snacks.

In conclusion, if you live in the Houston area and looking for a fun bachelorette party idea that everyone can enjoy, please call Art Class & Wine Glass painting studio to get pricing and more info today, 832-474-2585.
