A bachelorette party is one of those pre-wedding parties that many brides love to enjoy together with female friends. Just like how the guys enjoy the stag party before the big day, the women and the bride also love to spend some quality time together before the big day. Enjoy our helpful tips for planning a bachelorette party..
Planning for Your Bachelorette Party
The basic notion that often comes to mind when bachelorette parties are mentioned is a get-together of the bride and her girlfriends at a club and getting wasted – but actually, there are other good ways to spend the time together with your girlfriends.
To start with, you can start by planning a bachelorette party spa or a beauty/makeover bachelorette party where you and your friends can get pampered with a long, relaxing massage or a make-over session, or a nice day at a salon, being taken care of and pampered from head to toe.
Another good way to start is by planning your own bachelorette party weekend, where you and your friends enjoy a weekend of camping or basking in the white sandy beaches near your hometown. Wine-tasting or some horseback riding adventures can also make for a good bachelorette party.
Planning A Bachelorette Party: Etiquette and the Basics
Just like weddings, there is also etiquette involved with bachelorette parties and you may want to know some of the details of proper bachelorette party planning etiquette. The maid of honor and/or the bridesmaids host the bachelorette party and this means, they usually have to shoulder the cost of the party, as well as plan the party.
When planning the bachelorette party, make sure that you only invite people who are close to the bride and are also invited to the wedding. Unlike bridal showers where your mom and your in-laws should be present, you may want to skip inviting them to the bachelorette party, or else, it might ruin the bride’s party. I’m sure you get the picture, right?

Planning A Bachelorette Party On A Budget
One of the main considerations when planning a bachelorette party is the cost of having one. Although these days the bride may help shoulder the cost of the bachelorette party, the obligation however, lies mostly on the maid of honor and the bridesmaids. Therefore, you should plan your bachelorette party according to your budget. Don’t plan a lavish party if you can’t afford it.

Tips For Planning A Bachelorette Party
One of the things to keep in mind when planning a bachelorette party is to make sure that you haven’t left something unplanned or not correctly planned. Given your budget, a checklist for planning a bachelorette party is a must. It should contain what you are going to do and an outline of the cost and budget of the party. This way, you can easily monitor your progress when it comes to the preparation, as well as the budget that you need to come up with to make your party happen.
Planning the perfect bachelorette party isn’t easy. Just remember that it requires good preparation and a pretty good budget to make everything a success.
