So you’ve been put in charge of organizing your best friend’s bachelorette party. No pressure, right?
Not when you know what kind of things to include in her special day. From planning the food, the stops along the way, and the luxury vehicle rental to get places in, you can create a winning event your friends won’t soon forget.
Here are some ideas to make the day awesome.
Determine How Many People are Coming
First thing’s first – send out the invites to all of the bride-to-be’s closest friends. Give them a way to respond either by reply mail or by electronic message.
Make sure they’re people she’ll want at her special party. Consult with them if you need to to be sure there’s no conflicts or awkwardness during or after the party. (This doesn’t mean you have to tell them all of the details of what’s happening during the day. You can leave them in a bit of suspense.)
Remember, just because someone is not invited to the wedding, doesn’t mean they can’t be invited to the party.
Once you know how many people have committed, it will go a long way in helping you reserve spots at a restaurant. You’ll also know which limo rental you’ll need to comfortably fit everyone inside.
Get Food First
Let’s be honest, the bachelorette party will likely involve a few or more adult beverages. It’s important to get something into the stomachs of all the partiers before that begins because alcohol is absorbed more slowly on a full stomach.
You’ll also need good food for the energy to get through your fun day! No one wants to start feeling tired a couple of hours into the festivities.
Book a restaurant that comfortably seats all of your guests, and has options on the menu that everyone can enjoy. For example, don’t book a table at a steakhouse when half of your party are vegans.
From there, the night is yours!
Bachelorette Party Ideas
When it comes to planning the various components of the party, be sure to base them on the interests of the bride-to-be. If they love to dance and sing, then you can plan on hitting up the club or a karaoke bar (pub crawls are one of the most popular choices for a bachelorette.) If they’re more low-key, you could plan on a winery tour or a spa day.
There really are no rules with planning a bachelorette, and you can get creative. Why not plan a picnic in the park and take glam photos of each other? You could also try axe throwing, bowling, or spend the afternoon on the beach. Or you combine all of them into one day for a fun-packed itinerary.
Here are some other ideas for a fun bachelorette party that aren’t outrageously expensive:
• Book a short boat cruise
• Make it more thrilling by zip-lining or bungee jumping
• Plan a slumber party and stay indoors with junk food and retro movies
• Go to an art class that lets you drink during the painting session (turns out drinking may help people be more creative)
• Create a scavenger hunt and break the guests into groups to find objects
• Host a cooking party where you attend a cooking class or have everyone help out making an amazing recipe
• Challenge each other to a game of paintball (wear protective gear, you don’t want bruises before a wedding!)
• Attend a pole dancing class
• Go on a shopping excursion in the city
The sky is really the limit (speaking of which, you can also get a bit more adventurous and try skydiving. That’s if your group thinks it can handle falling out of a plane.) It might take some convincing, but even celebrities have chosen skydiving to mark an occasion.
Who says bachelorette parties only have to be one day? Instead of trying to fit as many things as you can into one day, try spreading them over a weekend if everyone’s time allows.
Why You Should Consider Luxury Vehicle Rental
There are many reasons why you’ll want to book a limo rental for a bachelorette party (do this step about a month before the party.)
One of the reasons, of course, is that you won’t have to worry about having a designated driver. It’s not worth taking any chances on the road when you can have a professional chauffeur do the driving. Also, unless you drive a bus, you won’t be able to get places as a group unless you reserve a larger vehicle.
There are other perks to having a limo. Your driver can help get you into exclusive clubs (and find them to begin with.) You can be sure the limos are well-cleaned, and you won’t get any nasty surprises from the group that booked it before you.
Because of the tinted windows on many limousine models, you can party inside without everyone seeing what you’re up to from the outside.
And then there are all the amenities in the limo: these can include a drink station, a DVD player and television, leather seating, air conditioning, and so much more that your own vehicle probably doesn’t have.
Choosing The Right Limo
No matter where you end up going, you’re going to want to arrive in style. But in order to find out which ride you need, you need to know how many people are coming and how long you’ll need transportation for.
You can order a luxury sedan if you only have a few people in your group, but you’ll likely want to go bigger. For example, if you have more than 12 people in your bachelorette party, then your standard stretch limo may not be enough. In this case, you could consider a party bus that some limo companies offer.
Also, be sure to ask about package deals and flat rates so you’re not paying more for additional stops or being hit with surprise surcharges.
