movie Bridesmaids or male strippers jiggling their junk around in your face. If you are part of the bridal party, you are going to want to plan something crazy, unforgettable and something fun, but where do you start? Not everyone can afford to travel to Vegas, and not everyone may comfortable with strippers and penis themed decorations.
Get It Together
Before you decided where the party is going to be and what size penis cake to order, figure out the date of the party. You probably think that the night before the wedding is the perfect time to celebrate, but its so cliché and unrealistic. Do you know a bride who has said “I can’t wait to be hung-over when I say my I do’s!” No? Me neither.
Plan the bachelorette party the weekend before the wedding, and send out invitations a month before. You will want to invite the bridal party, relatives and close friends of the bride. This is not your party; do not invite your friends.
Most likely, not everyone will be able to attend the bachelorette party, but as long as the bride comes you are in the clear. Ask your bride to make a list of the top 5 ladies who should attend and while planning the event, work around their schedules. This way if people start canceling, your bride won’t be too upset because her closest girlfriends will be attending.
Las Vegas or Miami Beach may seem like the ultimate place to hold a bachelorette party, but if you have to fly there to get there, not everyone may come. Being a bridesmaid is expensive, being a bride costs even more and some people can’t take work off. Discuss locations with the bridal party and the bride before surprising everyone with a destination bachelorette party. If not everyone can travel someplace far, your next best option is to go into a city close by.
The bride should not pay for ANYTHING, and the bridesmaids should start forking over the cash at as soon as possible. On the invitations CLEARLY state this so there are no last minute surprises for those who are attending. The bride will be paying for the bridal shower, you can at least all chip in for the bachelorette party.
The penis hats, penis straw, and penis over the top everything theme is fine but only do it if it’s what your bride wants. Women don’t always look at their bachelorette party as their last time to fool around with a guy, but as their last time to party it up with their girlfriends and let’s be serious, it won’t be the last time your bride has a girl’s night out.
This being said, get creative with the theme, the places you go and how the evening goes. Start the day early and have a mimosa brunch, hit up a vineyard in the afternoon, rent out a hotel room and do an old fashioned sleep over with crazy cocktail mixes and guilty snacks. Maybe you girls should attend your favorite heartthrob concert, dance till your feet hurt, pass out in a limo or just ask the bride, “Hey, how do you want to spend your last night?”
