Sure, spring is the wedding season but perhaps more importantly, it’s bachelorette party season. Here in the Garden of Eden, we know that pre-wedding parties are where the fun is, but we also understand how overwhelming it can be to plan them! But don’t worry, if you’re in charge of making plans for an unforgettable night, we’ve got you covered.

Here are some tips for planning the perfect bachelorette party so that you can make that last free night one for the record books!

Remember that it’s not your party!

This is something you should remember every time you plan a party for someone, especially a bachelorette party. So before you do anything, ask the bride what kind of night she has in mind. Ask what they want the party to be like, and more importantly, ask what types of things are off limits. Remember, this is their night and everyone has their own ideas and boundaries. So ask for input before you start planning so that you don’t waste time or come up with an evening that is memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Have alternative plans ready:

No matter how well you plan, things simply don’t always go like you want them to. The weather turns bad, people get sick, your entertainment falls through….there are lots of moving parts and it’s likely that at least one thing will go wrong. Your best protection against the inevitable is to think through alternative plans so that you’re ready for anything. This keeps a bump in the road from derailing your entire night!

Recruit help:

It might be your show, but that doesn’t mean you have to do everything alone. Make life easier on yourself by recruiting every friend you can to plan and execute plans. This not only saves you some time running around doing all the errands it takes to put together an amazing party, it takes away a lot of the pressure too. It is also a great way to brainstorm fun party ideas, so have a pre-party planning kick off and see what kind of night to remember you and your gang can come up with!

Remember the bride –

You might be in charge of the planning, but it’s important to remember that it’s not your party. The bachelorette party is all about the bride, so ask yourself, “Is this what she’d want?” as you make your plans. This helps to ensure that the evening represents what she would want, even if it’s not your idea of fun.

And we saved the most important bachelorette party planning tip for last – enjoy yourself! Don’t get so wrapped up in planning and playing host that you don’t enjoy the evening! And of course, stop by our store for some ideas and goodies to make the night even more special.
