Theme Party > Bachelorette Party Planning

A bachelorette party is like a rite of passage.  Groups of women gather to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of one of their own.  Following is a guide to help plan a fun and crazy bachelorette party.  Whether you plan a quiet and relaxing spa day, or a wicked night on the town, it will be one of the bride-to-be's life stories.  You should plan on allocating three to four weeks to plan a bachelorette party.

Week 1: Organizing the Bachelorette Party

Pick a date
First item on the agenda, consult with the bride-to-be and the rest of the bridal attendants to determine what her availability is.  Most bachelorettes prefer to have the party a month or more in advance to avoid any extra social commitments the month prior to the wedding.

Decide on activities
Is this going to be a daytime event, or a night-long celebration?  Is it a big group or a small group?  If the bride-to-be has several groups of friends, consider some quick ice-breaking activities before the main event to help kickstart interaction among the partygoers.  One idea is to have fun, light-hearted games on hand to play while waiting for everyone to show up.  Here are some fun ones that you can print out on your home computer:

Bachelor Party Mission Impossible



Bachelor Party Pant Splitters



Create guest list
The bride-to-be should only be involved in choosing the date, the activities and the guests.  She's got enough to worry about with the upcoming ceremony. 

Week 2: Invitations, Party Favors and Reservations

Send out invitations
Sending the invitations out now allows time for guests to clear their schedules and find that 'perfect' gift. Be sure to include the bride's name as well as your contact information and meeting location!

Purchase party favors
Time to go shopping!  If you are playing games, it's always fun to have a prize for the winner.  And of course, every bride-to-be needs a feather boa!

Make any needed reservations
Going out for dinner before all the festivities?  Book that table now.  And, if the plans are to hit the bars after, be sure to call the bar in advance.  You may be able to negotiate a package deal if you say you're hosting a bachelorette party, such as a flat rate for three hours.

Week 3: Final Details

Take inventory of RSVPs
Those RSVPs have started rolling in.  If you haven't received confirmation from a guest you are sure is likely to attend, pick up the phone and ask.  The invitation could have gotten lost in the mail, or the invitee may have not realized an RSVP was needed. 

Confirm reservations
With the headcount more or less complete, be sure to confirm the reservations you made last week.  Also confirm any special arrangements, such as having party favors placed at each table setting at dinner.

Photo evidence
Pick up some disposable cameras and give them to guests to take impromptu photos of the action.  They can pass the cameras around so everyone is sure to be in a picture or two!  After the party, collect all the cameras and develop the film.  Host the photos online as a post-party favor for all attendees, and a reminder for the bride of her one of her last days of being single.

Day of:
Now is the time to reap the rewards of all your efforts! Greet the guests with a smile and make sure the bride-to-be gets an opportunity to meet each guest. Have fun and enjoy!
