4 Ideas For Throwing a Memorable Bachelorette Party

The chances are that all of the wedding plans are all sorted, and things are running smoothly. You will be counting down the weeks and then the days soon. So there are only a few small things to sort out before the big day. The next things are bridal shots and a bachelorette party, of course! Bridals are done only a short time before the wedding, so I’m going to share some fun ideas for throwing a bachelorette party. Hopefully, you won’t have to plan your own, but rather, you could share these ideas with your maid of honor.

 

Road Trip

This is going to be the trickiest option, which will require a lot more planning than most. But if you have got friends and bridesmaids that are up for a little bit of a road trip, then what could be more fun? It could just be a weekend trip to somewhere like Las Vegas, or a more chilled out trip to somewhere like Cocoa Beach in Florida. It depends on where you are in the country as to where you will go of course. But it is such fun to get all the girls together and have one last party trip as an unmarried woman. If you wanted to do a trip away for your bachelorette, it is time to get planning it now!

 

House Party

You or a bridesmaid that has a home perfect for a party. You could tie it in with a bridal shower perhaps. You could fill the night with lots of silliness and games. You could even think about getting something like Melbourne Memories Party Booths to have for the night. Then you will have great photo memories of the night with all of your friends and family at the party. It can be a cheap way to have a bachelorette too. People can bring their own drinks, and you can decorate as much or as little as you would like.

 

Spa Day

If you aren’t a massive party animal, then you might prefer to have something like a spa day. It could just be a small number of you that go. It makes it nice and intimate that way too. It will be so nice to pamper yourselves, have facials or massages and just relax. I think bachelorette or not, this needs to happen before the wedding anyway. You deserve to relax after planning a wedding!

Dine Out for the Evening

You could pick your favorite restaurant to go to and have a meal with your bridesmaids and friends. Sometimes it makes it more fun if you all dress up smartly or even do fancy dress. It might be a special experience to go to a fine dining restaurant too, somewhere with a Michelin star, for example. Though I don’t think fancy dress would go down well at one of those restaurants, as sometimes that have dress codes. It will make you feel all fancy, though; a real treat. You could then go wherever the night takes you and finish up in a bar or nightclub. It is your party, so you can choose!

Pre-wedding Essentials

The run up to your wedding day can be pretty hectic to say the least. Not only is there so much to plan and organise, there’s also the added pressure of making sure you look great and the worry that everyone remembers exactly what they’re supposed to be doing and at the right time. Here’s a reminder of some pre-wedding essentials you need to get organised in time for the big day, just in case you forget:

  • Setting up your wedding gift list

Spending sometime setting up your wedding gift list is really important. Traditionally a gift list is to help you get set up for married life together so involves lots of essentials like cutlery, a toaster and kettle etc. But, as so many couples live together before marriage now things have changed a bit. Use your list to get beautiful things for your house to make it feel more homely and special as you start married life. Sites like Cox and Cox for some gorgeous interior inspiration.

  • Check your passport is in date

Making sure that both your passports are in date in time for the honeymoon is vital and something that often gets forgotten in the run up to a wedding. The passport renewal system can take a while in busy periods but usually about 3 weeks and an emergency run to the passport offices located in Liverpool, London, Durham or Glasgow.

  • Put together the table favours

Little things like table favours can easily be forgotten. They give you chance to thank your guests for coming to your wedding and allow you to add a little personal touch to the day. By thinking about these in advance you’ll be able to put together some cute little favours which symbolise your relationship and put a smile on your guests’ faces.

  • The cake

Organising the cake well in advance is super important to make sure you get exactly what you want and the cake designer you desire.  With specialists being booked up well in advance it’s important to organise this early on then it’s one thing off the list that can’t get forgotten about at the last minute. Try and think about what you want for your cake rather than pleasing your guests and always plan for the amount of people you have coming.

There’s so much to organise when planning a wedding that it can all get really stressful. By considering these 4 essentials far in advance you’ll hopefully not forget anything and have a wonderful wedding day.
