Are you the maid of honor or one of the bridesmaids? Then you know how important it is for your friend to have an amazing bachelorette party. There are so many things to do, so many venues to rent out and so many ways to dress up … so we get it can get a bit hard to decide what you want to do.
That’s why we gladly share four tips we absolutely adore, so you can get inspired!
Throw it back to when everyone met
A bachelorette is not only a celebration of love, but it’s also a celebration of friendship. After all, the bride chose all of you to celebrate her marriage with. That’s why it’s super nice to make sure the bachelorette is really personal.
For instance, if you rent a limo, make a playlist of all the songs you danced on when you were together in college. Stock up the limo with the cheap beer you drank in the dorms because it was all you could afford. Make it a celebration of love, friendship and fun!
Choose a suitable theme for the bachelorette
Host a bachelor party that makes the bride happy, not what the guests think it is the greatest thing to do. So choose a theme and bachelorette party activities that go well with her personality. You are the organizer of her bachelor party for a reason.
Probably you know her the best from everyone who is enjoying the bachelorette. So you can do this as the best! If you not sure about things, you can ask the other tips.
Make all reservations well in advance
Are you planning to travel, stay overnight or book a certain activity? Then book well in advance. This saves costs and ensures that you have a place to sleep and that you can do activities.
This is really important because when something is going wrong with this, it could be bad for the vibe. And that’s not what you want at the bachelorette organized by you! Extra tip if you make a reservation for an activity: make sure the activity is appropriate for the number of people you are with.
Create a program booklet
Women like to know where they stand and what is going to happen. Therefore prepare the invitees with a program booklet for the bachelorette day of the weekend, so that they know what to expect. This may also reduce the hassle of paying things as they know exactly what they are getting.
Clarity in advance is key! And no one can accuse you of not preparing it properly.
An additional tip: send creative invitations. Show them that you have really put time into this and that it is going to be really great! So start with creative invitations that no one can say no to!
Save time for spontaneous ideas
Save time for spontaneous ideas or activities. Imagine, the party is in full swing and some creative people have some great ideas that can give the party extra dynamism and shine! As organizer is this the best thing that can happen.
But how annoying it is that there is no time for these great ideas. Show the girls in the program booklet that time has been reserved for free interpretation. They will appreciate it.
A surprise party… of course!
A surprise party and bachelorettes, it belongs together. It is absolutely the best if the bride does not know anything about her bachelorette party. So don’t involve her in the organization, do not say anything when she asks for it and create a surprise effect on the day itself.
How cool is it to see her reaction when you come to pick her up for the big day! It is priceless, for sure!
Personalize your outfits
Dressing up is such a big part of the fun. You can go as crazy as you want – from a bride tiara to x-rated accessories. Personally, we love it when the whole group has carefully selected, personalized accessories.
A lot of people think you can only get fun things printed on big items, like t-shirts or tops, but that’s not the case! Lots of companies let you print the funniest things on all kinds of items. For instance, if you choose a bachelorette weekend to some sunny coast, you can get sunglasses printed (Dutch: zonnebrillen bedrukken) with e.g. “Jenny’s bachelorette!” or flip flops printed (Dutch: slippers bedrukken) with “Bride squad”.
To make it extra fun, you can also print on all kinds of fans (Dutch: waaiers bedrukken)- the bride will scream with laughter if she sees fans with her face on and “Almost off the market!” printed on them!
Hire a glam squad and a photographer
Most groups of friends have taken tons of selfies and group shots together. To celebrate one of you stepping into a new chapter in her life, it’s always fun to celebrate this with some great group shots.
It’s really fun to take this to the next level: book a makeup artist, have some drinks and get glammed up. Once everyone is looking their best, a professional photographer can take some incredible shots of the whole group. These photos will be cherished forever!
Make a lot of pictures and videos, because this amazing day must be recorded. And with all the pictures and videos you can make an aftermovie. So that everyone can remember this day forever and ever.
The group dynamic
Ensure that the group dynamic is good. This makes or breaks the bachelorette. Because how important are the people around you for the group atmosphere? Really important!
Therefore, try to avoid people who actually do not fit well in the group in a subtle way. Are you doubting about how to can make this sure? Ask the bachelorette to compile the guest list. Because actually, she is best to estimate this.
With these tips, we think you can have the best bachelorette ever and make sure it will be an unforgettable day. Enjoy!
