There’s no better way to say goodbye to being single and have one last fling before the ring than by having a bachelorette party. Whether that includes a night out on the town, spa day or a weekend trip to a sunny destination, planning the party is easier than you might think! If you’re in charge of putting your best friend’s bash together, read on for the full rundown of everything bachelorette party.
Who hosts a bachelorette party?
Virtually anyone can host a bachelorette party. Typically, the maid of honor and bridesmaids, who are close to the bride, do the honors, but any friend, relative, or even coworkers can host the party. However, we recommend having the bride designate who is hosting the party so nothing gets confused.
Who is invited to the party?
Depending on where and when the party takes place, usually, only the bridal party and a few close friends are invited. We recommend keeping the invitations exclusive and keeping the guest list small to essential personnel only.
What do you do at a bachelorette party?
Anything goes, really! From nights out on the town to spa days or a long weekend out of town, there are so many ways to celebrate the bride to be. Definitely, plan the activities around what the bride likes doing and make her experience feel special. If you know she doesn’t drink, then bar hopping may not be her idea of fun, even if that’s what you’d like to do.
What about gifts?
The bachelorette party is not a gift party in the same way a bridal shower is, so presents aren’t necessary. That being said, this is a great opportunity for guests to give the bride silly gifts or even sexy ones like the lingerie that was just too risqué for the shower! You might ask everyone to bring a gag gift like something nostalgic. The goal is for the bride and her guests to bond and have a blast before the wedding.
