If you are
one of the lucky ones planning a bachelorette party over this
season, you have a lot of fun and exciting work ahead of you. With
school and/or work, daily tasks and your social schedule, it is not
always easy to take the time and plan the bachelorette party and
last night out festivities. That is where we come in. We have
decided to outline a helpful planning schedule that we hope helps
you plan the bachelorette party. Below, you will find helpful tips
that will make less stress planning:
Start as Early as Possible
As soon as you find out your are planning a bachelorette party, ask
the bride-to-be who she wants going and get contact information as
well as some ideas of what the bride would like to do for her last
night out. The early diva catches the deal.
As soon as you have the contact information for the bachelorettes,
including emails, names and phone numbers, send out a message to see
who wants to help plan the bachelorette party so it is not all in
your lap. Beauty in the Details: Find out what month the
bachelorette wants to have her party as well as the following:
Home or Away and where
Bachelorette party entertainment venue?
All day, all night or weekender
Transportation (bachelorette limo, party bus, or sober driver(s)
Date of bachelorette party
as you have these details, you are golden to move to the next phase
of planning Deals and Discounts: Letís face it, this economy is
still in the toilette but use this to your advantage to get the best
bachelorette party discounts around. Use your diva purchasing power
and ask for volume rates. Everyone will want your business so they
will bid for it. See if you can get a percentage off bills, travel,
a free meal for the bride-to-be, VIP access and extra time for
wherever you end up. The earlier you start on this, the better your
rates and organization of an excellent bachelorette party.
Classy or Sassy
Decide whether the bachelorette wants to have a more classy party
with conservative events (i.e., spa day, restaurant, concert,
weekender at a resort, favorite bar) or one that includes some
sultry surprises (i.e., male dancer, exotic dance lessons, bar
hoping, exotic getaway with the girls to Las Vegas or New Orleans).
Just make sure you ask the bachelorette for her recommendation since
the last night out party is about her and not as much everyone
Get the bachelorette party invitations out asap. We suggest doing
paper bachelorette party invitations since it is fun for the girls
to get them in the mail and place them up on a board in their office
or home to get excited about the date. You can also follow up each
week prior to the party with an email to the group about what has
been planned and getting feedback. This is a great way to get the
bachelorettes excited about the party!
Bachelorette Party Games: There are tons of ice breaker
bachelorette party games that make the last night out more memorable
and interesting. Find bachelorette party games that fit the venue
and time of the party. Our favorite bachelorette party games

Re-Check Party Plans
A few weeks (if you have them) prior to the bachelorette party, make
sure to reconfirm all plans with any venue, transportation company
or entertainment you have hired. Make sure they still have you
booked so you donít freak out the last minute that they forgot and
donít have your information.
Collection of Money
As soon as you have everything planned, figure out the bachelorette
budget and have all the girls pitch in equally. Collect the money
from the bachelorettes prior to the last night out so you are not
the diva debt collector during or after the bachelorette party.
There are always those girls who ďforgetĒ to get their money in.
Stay in constant communication with them and make sure you get that
money as it is not fair for others to front their bill (unless they
donít have the funds and if everyone can help pitch in so they can
go and pay what they can). Solicit the bride or the other
influential girls to help collect the money so you are not the only
one. This is always an issue and a lot better to deal with prior to
the party instead of after.
The week of the bachelorette party, amp up the volume of emails to
the bachelorettes to get everyone excited and to make sure everyone
has what is needed as for plans. This is a fun time in anticipation
of having fun with the girls. It is a great way to bond with the
bachelorettes who will also most likely be at the wedding and make a
more fun party!
Creation of Blogs
It is easy and free to create a facebook or blog
site to have the bachelorettes banter back and forth in preparing
for the big bachelorette party bash! Set it up and email the girls
to participate as soon as possible. Give updates to bachelorette
party plans as well as other websites that you feel are helpful.
Bachelorette Party Day
Make sure to pack the essentials early which may include, purse,
wallet, ID, credit card, perfume or body oil, antiperspirant,
bachelorette party supplies,
contact phone numbers of bachelorettes and venue/transportation
information, map or directions to destinations, cell phone, and
anything else you plan on bringing.
