Planning and attending a bachelor or bachelorette party can be a lot of fun. Typically all the planning will be done for you by your maid of honor or best man. Although really anyone can do this for you. With all the stress that can build up for you while planning a wedding and maintaining your daily life its a good idea to blow off some steam. It is also a good opportunity to spend some time with close friends and family before the wedding.
If you are the lucky one trusted with planning the bachelor or bachelorette party you will need to work closely with the bride or groom to find out exactly what they want to do. It is their last day being single and you could bet they want to have a good time. But one thing you should know is everyone is different. Not everyone wants to spend 10 hours at the strip club and not everyone wants to just sip tea for an afternoon. Talk it out with them!
Planning A Bachelor or Bachelorette Party
Like we said above planning a bachelor or bachelorette party isn’t all that hard. All you need to do is talk to your friend and tailor the day around what they truly love doing. If she wants to get manicures then plan a day around the spa with her and her girls. If he wants to go fishing get the guys together for a weekend at the cottage. All you need to understand that planning a wedding and moving into the married life is a very stressful period of time. Your friend is probably going through a lot of emotions and have a lot more on their minds then you could imagine. Unless you’re married though. Then you understand exactly what they are going through. Once you know what they want to do work with them on a guest list. Depending upon what you and the bride or groom plan for the party will determine who they want there with them. If your going to a gentlemen’s club they may not want there boss there with them. Work out a list that includes their side of the bridal party, family, friends, and co-workers. Get their contacts and set a date with your friend for the Party.
The Only Reservations and Invitations
Now you are ready to make the reservations, send out the invitations, and buy some party favours for the bachelor or bachelorette party. When you invite the guests make sure you discuss splitting the cost of the party with them ahead of time. Its a good idea to let everyone know they might have to pay a little towards the bride or grooms last night of freedom. It also makes sure that you don’t get stuck paying 100% of the bills.
