You just found out that you are the hostess for a bachelorette party. Your blood pressure rises, your nerves begin to get frazzled, you get tongue tied. How are you supposed to tell the bride-to-be that you are not up to the challenge?
Well don't worry, you won't have to if you use our easy to follow guidelines. You can throw a party that will be a huge success. When the bride-to-be hugs you to thank you, she will mean it from the bottom of her heart!
Step 1: Write down who you think the bachelorette would like to have attend her party. Of course all of the bridesmaids will be included, and if you are not familiar with their names or addresses, get a list from the brides mother or other close friends. Use these guests as resource to obtain the names of others. You will want to invite fun friends that the bride will be inviting to the wedding. If the bride is having a small wedding, others may be invited, but please let them know before the party about the limited guest list for the wedding.
Step 2: Think about how many guests you are having and try to decide on a plan of action. Answer all the questions below on a rated scale of 1-5. 1 meaning “not at all", 5 meaning “very much so".
How conservative is she? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she enjoy a male dancers performance? 1 2 3 4 5
How would she respond to having male member shaped party favors? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she like to participate in a scavenger hunt? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she enjoy riding in a limo? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she be willing to travel by plane? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she like a full weekend getaway? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she enjoy the spa? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she enjoy gambling? 1 2 3 4 5
Would she like to have a relaxing evening at home? 1 2 3 4 5
Step 3: After reviewing the answers to the above questions, you can start to plan the activities, from a small gathering of friends and inviting a psychic for the evening, to flying to Las Vegas for a weekend of all night parties! Try to keep in mind the ages of your guests and their budgets.
Step 4: Inviting the guests. There are many online shops that carry bachelorette party invitations that you can order and send out in the mail. There are also email invites if you have email addresses available. Phone calls are more personal, and if the party is large you can ask some of the bridesmaids to help with this task. Make sure the helpers have a list with all the details, and names and phone numbers for who to contact. Make sure all RSVP's come back to you. It is always easiest to collect money in advance. It may be $10.00 for a home party to $250.00 or more for a weekend getaway. Please make sure every detail is spelled out for the guest including what will be included for the money given. For example, does the money include a gift for the bachelorette, food and drink, transportation, tips, etc. . You may even want to include what type of clothing to bring if it's a weekend getaway, or if you are having a color scheme, or party theme. The main goal is to give your guests more than enough information so they don't show up feeling unsure or anxious about anything. Give them the exact address and time you plan to meet. Remember to start planning early enough so your guests have time to arrange their schedules so they can attend.
Main objective: Have a great time whether it's relaxing or WILD! Don't be surprised if you get a few offers during the party to host another one! If you follow the party planning guidelines, your party should be a huge success!
Give our best wishes to the bride!
