04 May How to Plan A Rocking Bachelor/Bachelorette Party?
If your bestie is getting married and you are trying to win the award for the best bridesmaid or best man, the best way to get there is to plan a rocking bachelor/bachelorette party for the soon-to-be-wed happy couple. From engagement presents to wedding gifts to deciding the theme of the party and considering the entertainment for the evening, there is a lot to consider. And if you are no event planner or especially stressed about how you are going to go about the task of planning an entire party for the bride or the groom, here are some tips to help you out!
1. Chat with the groom/bride
The first and most important thing to do when planning a bachelor/bachelorette party is to talk to the bride and the groom. After all, it is their day, and so, they need to be kept in the loop at all times. It is a good idea to ask the happy couple exactly what they expect from the party and if they want it to be an extravagant and crazy affair or a more low-key, close friends only with amazing food and drinks kind of event. In any case, do not forget to discuss your plans with the bride/groom.
2. Finalize a date and a location
The next step is to finalize a date and a venue. Again, it is crucial to ensure that everyone RSVPs and is available to attend the party on a specific date, including, of course, the bride and the groom. Choose a location keeping your discussion with the couple in mind and make sure it is convenient enough for all the guests.
3. Set theme and budget for Bachelor/Bachelorette
After that, set a theme and a budget. The thing with parties such as these is that things can quickly get out of hand and you might find yourself out of all the money you set aside for the party. So, set a budget and stick to it. Also, go for an out-of-the-box theme for the party according to the preferences of the bride and the groom.
4. Make a guest list
Making a guest list is another vital task. Think about all the people the bride/groom would want to spend their last few “single” days with and jot down all those names. Do not forget to invite the couple to their own party or that will just be awkward!
5. Plan a surprise
Lastly, do not forget to plan a surprise! Think about something your best friend told you he/she really wanted and try to make that happen for them. Trust us! Nothing will make the party more spectacular than the surprised look on the bride’s/groom’s face. You can also consider roping all the guests in the surprise to make it grander.
A bachelor/bachelorette party is an important milestone in the lives of the couple and should be a perfect event for both of them. If you still find yourself struggling with the plans, why not take the help of a professional wedding planner?
