How to Avoid Awkward Bachelorette Party Scenarios

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 is going to work for everyone involved?

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

• Invite as many people to join your “social media” group event as possible. Although someone may be far, you might be surprised at the extra effort they may show you

• Social media allows for you to start communicating and throwing a few possible dates around. Please be patient. Some people’s schedules are so tight they only check their social media accounts in the late evening or night.

• Once you’ve targeted a more favorable date for all involved, please do not be disappointed when a certain percentage of friends cannot attend due to scheduling conflicts. This is not personal, unfortunately Sarah’s mom sometimes already has her hip replacement surgery scheduled and cannot attend the function. Look at the bright side, they’re looking at your BIG DAY as the “sure thing” on their social calendar.

Getting a Venue for Your Bachelorette Party

Great, we got the date down, and hopefully an estimated time. But what to do? It’s a bit awkward asking your friends if they’ll all 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 is going to allow the most number of participants without them hesitating. 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.

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 younger crowd that may still be in college or just graduated, every penny counts. Although your parents are helping finance the wedding, the bridesmaids, best friends and cousins in this group 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 as the bridesmaid to tell the bride that you’re 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 activities as well.

Get ready for that special night! Designated driver is a “must”.

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 can get hurt when people do not recognize the “maid of honor” and how she is coordinating most of the events. 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. If you live in Houston 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.
