How to Plan the Perfect Bachelorette for Your Bestie

When your best friend tells you they are engaged, it is one of the most exciting pieces of news you are ever likely to hear and once you have gotten over the initial shock and excitement, it is time to get down to business.

With this in mind, here is how to plan the perfect bachelorette celebration for your bestie.

Book Venues ASAP

Unequivocally, if you only take one piece of advice from the article, it should be that as soon as you have confirmed a date with your engaged best friend, you need to book accommodation, if you are staying over, or else at least one club or restaurant to begin the night out.

Remember that, depending on where you live, some establishments, especially nightclubs, are reluctant to allow big groups, such as stags and hens, to enter without prior booking. Additionally, the best spots will be booked way ahead of time, so the sooner you book your celebration, the less likely you are to be disappointed.

SetUp a Payment System in Good Time

Although it is easier to just pay things off in one go, especially for events such as a bachelorette weekend where there may be several activities organized in quick succession if you choose this option, you will inevitably end up out of pocket.

Even with the best intentions in the world, it is likely more than a couple of girls will say they cannot come, either because of an emergency or forgotten previous engagement and if you have waited for everyone to pay their share, you will end up forking out for the deficit.

Novelty Accessories & Night-Out Gear

Whether you are planning a one-night-only celebration, or else arranging a weekend away, one element of any fabulous bachelorette party has to be the inclusion of naughty and novelty night-out accessories.

Essentially, the goal here is to ensure that the bride-to-be stands out as much as humanly possible from the hens and, as such, you should visit to stock up on bachelorette party essentials. Furthermore, when it comes to the mandatory fancy dress component of the evening ’do’, here are some of the best group costume ideas:

  • Circus characters with the bride as the ringmaster
  • Disney Villains
  • Where’s Waldo
  • Pajama Party
  • Harry Potter
  • Sexy Golfers
  • Cowgirls & Indians

Organization & Delegation

Finally, once you have decided (and checked with the bride), the key elements of the impending bachelorette weekend details, it is then time to get to work on the finer details and the only way you can ensure you leave no stone unturned is to get organized.

Make a spreadsheet with your payment plans for each activity, and have a folder with useful numbers and backup ‘Plan Bs’ in terms of clubs and restaurants, as well as a list of extra things, such as decorations you need to buy before the weekend.

Additionally, nobody should be expected to organize an entire bachelorette party on their own, so delegate to a fellow mutual friend some key responsibilities to make sure everything gets done.
