Planning a bachelor or bachelorette party can be a lot of pressure. Below are some do’s and dont’s to help make the celebration a perfect one!
Bachelor and bachelorette parties are a celebration of you and your spouse’s last time as single individuals. Typically, the maid of honor and the best man are responsible for throwing the parties and its a final celebration with close friends, relatives and co-workers before getting married.
*Invitees should be on the guest list for the wedding, but keep it small. Typically, the list should be kept from 10 to 20 people.
*Invitees are responsible to cover all the costs, especially for the bride and groom. It is always a good idea to get the payments in advance.
*Invite guests using either paper invitations, email, a phone call, a wedding website, or even let them know in person.
*The party should be held a month to a few days before the wedding.
*Be sure to make a reservation when available, especially after receiving the final RSVP list.
*Include transportation. It’s always worth splurging on a limo!
*Make the bride or groom feel special by including customized treats, t-shirts, lingerie, or memorabilia.
*If you do choose to make the party risque, be sure to make the bride stand out. Include fun props like a veil, sash and x-rated essentials.
*Never host the bachelor/bachelorette party the night before the wedding.
*Do not plan the even without a total head count. You do not want to be responsible for paying for people who do not show.
*Don’t feel like the party has to be risque. Men can participate in activities such as attending sports games, or outdoor activities. They may also choose to attend a cigar bar or rent a yacht for the occasion. Women can participate in activities such as spa days, attending a nice dinner, karaoke, or even choosing to go to a psychic.
Tat’s Final Tips:
*You and your spouse should hold the parties on the same day, so you are not thinking about what the other is doing.
*You should sit down with your spouse and discuss some ground rules of acceptable behavior at each other’s parties. Let whoever is hosting the event know about these boundaries.
*Do not be tempted into doing anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.
*All great parties are made a success by great company and cocktails. Make sure this a top priority.
