A few guidelines to make any bachelorette party fabulous

Whether you're a sister, friend, or relative of the bride-to-be, keep in mind that planning a bachelorette party will run more smoothly if you keep these tips in mind:

  • Remember the future bride. This party isn't about making a group of women happy; it's about pleasing the bride-to-be. Make her interests and tastes the top priority, then plan accordingly.
  • Set a budget. Everyone invited may not be in the same financial situation. Determine a budget, figure out who is paying for what, then stick to it.
  • Leave no detail to chance. How many people will be attending? Can the place accommodate them comfortably? Will you rent a limousine for everyone? Does the bachelorette want to wear a veil or something else to symbolize her position to the world? Keep a checklist of details so nothing falls through the cracks.
  • Keep the guest list small. Invite the bride's closest friends and family; six to ten people is a good number. More than that can get overwhelming.
  • Make reservations early. Most bachelorette parties occur within the few weeks leading up to the wedding. Plan the party and pick the date at least two to three months ahead of time. That way, everyone has enough to time to mark their calendars and look forward to a fun-filled get-together.
