With all the tensions associated with marriage planning, there is a possibility to relax with friends. Planning a fun bachelor party will help you escape all the important decisions that need to be made for the wedding itself. Here are some tips to put together a bachelor party.
Tip 1 - Planning
It is customary for the bridesmaids to plan the party. The maid of honor must have the first choice in planning, but if she has already done the bridal shower, others may want to help plan and cost. If their hands are full of wedding details, a good friend wants to take over with their hands.
Tip 2 - Bride style
Keep the personal preferences of the bride in mind when planning. If she would be embarrassed easily by a night of more risky nature, opt for a day at the spa. Plan a whole day with high tea, a trip to the salon and drinks and dinner. Remember that caring for the bride is the first priority. If heavy drinking is going to take place, think about having the weekend before the wedding instead of the night before.
Tip 3 - Invites
Ask the bride whom she would like to invite. Sometimes they may not want their mother and mother-in-law to join, so it's good to ask her for the list of guests. Make sure all ladies are informed of the date in advance. Everyone has busy schedules and it is best to give everyone the opportunity to share their schedules.
Be specific. Let the guests know the times and the itinerary throughout the day. Some may want to meet at one of the locations, but not all of them. You can ask for donations to do something extra special for the bride, such as renting a limo for the day. Enter a phone number to ask questions. Let guests know how much they can expect to spend for the day.
Tip 4 - Reservations
If you are planning the event at a popular location, you must call and book in advance. If you cannot enter because a place is full, it can become a downer all day long. Depending on the size of the group, it may be useful to rent a VIP stand in a club.
Tip 5 - Personalize the experience
This is supposed to be a celebration of the last days as a single woman, so present your bride with some memories of that time.
Collect photos and present them with a scrapbook of all the memories.
Leave a page blank at the end for wedding day photos of all ladies during her wedding.
Present her with special wedding day lingerie or other nice gifts to send her in her 'married way'.
Also personalize the experience for the guests. Buy favors that all ladies can wear during the night to indicate that they are at your party. Tiaras and sashes are fun for the guests to wear. Make a goody bag full of survival items for the bachelor party, such as aspirin, an ice bag and lipstick.
