If you were recently asked to be the maid of honor at your best friend or close relative's wedding, the first thing that might come to mind is how to organize the perfect bachelorette party for the bride-to-be.
Planning an event like this is similar to a birthday party. Just remember- every aspect of the party should reflect the interests of bride. A safe bet is to go to a classy bar, order some drinks and call have a great night, but there are other ideas that will really make for a memorable occasion.
First, ask the guest of honor if she'd like to pick a destination for the party. Some brides may want to have input, while others may prefer to let the maid of honor or bridesmaids handle the details.
Pick a destination that has meaning to the bride. If she's fashion-savvy, consider New York City, Beverly Hills or Paris. If she's looking for an extended getaway, try Las Vegas, London or Miami. Cape Cod, San Diego or, yes, even the Caribbean, are all additional (although costly) options you and the bride's best gal pals may want to consider.
Having said that, If the consensus among the bridal party is to keep the shindig local, try to keep some important tips in mind.
For starters, you'll want to mail out invitations at least a couple months prior to give your guests enough time to schedule for the event. If a majority of people cannot make it on that particular date or time, you have plenty of time to adjust the plans.
When enough people have confirmed, you can start prepping the details. You may want to give the bride-to-be a personalized bachelorette sash and veil, which will allow her to remain the center of attention all night long.
Be proud of your bachelorette crew and attach a bachelorette party flag to your car. You may even hear some hoots and hollers as your navigate the streets - cheer along with them and enjoy the night. This will be an amazing experience for you, the bride and the rest of the girls.
