How can I Prepare to Host a Bachelorette Party?
The old 80s tune, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” is a great motto to keep in mind if you are to host a bachelorette party. Planning a party that is one step up from a girl’s night out is the surest way to please the bride-to-be and all her guests. A wild night of drinking, an evening at a classy restaurant, or a visit to an exotic male club are great ideas for a bachelorette party. Even better, host a bachelorette party that includes all of the above.
Host a bachelorette party sure to be unforgettable by bringing lots of props and gag gifts. Phallus shaped necklaces, water guns and other props are hilarious to many brides-to-be and their guests. Also, provide the bride with a special tiara or veil to wear to publicly announce she is about to take the plunge. This also helps ensure a little forgiveness for wild parties and questionable behavior that takes place in public.
It is very popular to host a bachelorette party with a few good bachelorette games. A checklist of tasks for the bride to complete during the party, such as kissing the first bald man she comes across or asking strangers to donate money to her honeymoon fund, add a lot of excitement and laughs to the event. If you host a bachelorette party that includes these types of games, be sure to have everyone sign an oath of secrecy! These contracts are usually readily available alongside all the other props and games designed for bachelorette parties.
It is important to host a bachelorette party that makes the bride-to-be feel like a queen, so make sure that you have arranged for safe transportation for everyone. Renting a limousine for the duration or the party can serve both purposes. This mode of transportation can be made easily affordable by asking all the guests to chip in.
A bachelorette party is designed to celebrate the passage from single life to married life, obviously a life altering event. Creativity on the part of the person designated to host a bachelorette party will surely be appreciated by all. Many hostesses opt to skip the girl’s night out type of party and host a bachelorette party at a spa, a cruise, a nostalgic sleepover party or a theme party inspired by any special interests of the bride-to-be.
@MrsPramm - Bachelorette party stories can make it seem like they are very out of control, but from what I've heard that isn't the reason they aren't always welcomed into places. I read an article a while ago about how certain places in Vegas won't give party discounts to bachelorette groups because they don't think they are good for business, since the girls aren't there to pick up men.
The bars and clubs would rather have small groups of women so that they can attract male patrons who are more likely to gamble.
If you're planning a bachelorette party in Vegas I'd keep that in mind.
@browncoat - I've heard more than once that bachelorette parties are either banned or strongly discouraged in a lot of places. I think it's because you get a group of friends, who have often traveled quite far to go out and drink and they all let their inhibitions go and cause a big ruckus.
Which seems harmless if it was just one group doing it, but if you're in a touristy area, or a place associated with romance you might get several groups like that per night and they will all be drunk and trying to dance on the tables.
If I ever have one, I'm going to hire out a place rather than just wander around town. It's safer and it gives you more of a chance to get up close and personal with the stripper!
I love seeing themed bachelorette party groups when I'm out on the town. It's usually some kind of in-joke where they all wear printed shirts for the occasion or dress up in wigs, or devils horns or something. They always look hilarious and like they're having a great time. Usually the bride-to-be wears a tiara or a special shirt or something.
