Like the bachelor party, the bachelorette party has become a celebration of the end of “being single” and usually includes the immediate wedding party and very close friends of the bride. The maid of honor is usually in charge of coordinating the event.
Be creative when planning your party. Many local businesses have suggestions that guarantee a night to remember. A room in a restaurant, a hotel or spa suite are popular party locations because they allow you to fully enjoy yourselves without disturbing other guests.
Barhopping or nightclubs with comedy or live entertainment are other popular choices. And while you’re out enjoying the evening, avoid any problems with drinking and driving by treating yourself to a night out in a limousine.
For a party at home, videos can provide fun and memorable entertainment.
Wherever your party is held, you can cater it yourself with prepared party trays and “just heat and serve” entrees from local specialty stores or caterers.
The bachelor and bachelorette party sometimes takes the form of a shower, with the bride or groom receiving small gifts. Lingerie, gag gifts, or things to use on the honeymoon are popular themes for this type of party. Be sure it is tailored to suit the style and personality of the guest of honor.
This party is best held a week or two before the wedding; not the night before! That way you won’t be putting anything in the way of your enjoyable wedding day.
