Your best friend is soon to be married, everyone is ecstatic, and you can’t wait for the big day to come. It’s hard to tell who is more excited about this, the bride or you, the maid of honor. Well, first of all, you have to fulfill your sacred duties as maid of honor and organize the best bachelorette party to give your girl a proper farewell into adulthood and marital life. It is obviously up to you to decide if you’re going to make a big blow-out and invite all your female friends over for a crazy night, or is it just going be a few close friends living it up in a one-night, Vegas-like extravaganza. Here are some tips on how to prepare for this special event and not let your friend down.
When you’re making plans for this occasion, don’t feel the pressure to do every little thing yourself. Split the obligations between you and other close friends of the bride- this includes money as well. It would be much less draining if more people chipped in, and you could make a much better party. Bear in mind though, that this party is aimed towards your bride-to-be and her having the most fun night of her life. With this in mind, try and get suggestions from the bride, just so it doesn’t happen that you completely miss what she would have wanted.
Theme it up
It depends a bit on if you’re making a small or a large-scale party, but basically any theme can be interpreted in a number of ways, so it will be your job to find the thematic detail and think of why this will be special for the bride or for your particular group of friends. Sometimes, you won’t even have to bother with thinking up a whole concept- with a wide array of wedding supplies easily available, you will surely find things that will suit you and your friends. Include little gift bags so that all your friends will remember this lovely event.
You must remember not to forget to invite someone. If you’re making a big party, maybe it would be best to go through your friends’ phonebook, or ask her future husband who you should invite. And if you’re making just a small party, be very careful about who you’re going to invite, as some girls might get offended by not getting an invitation. Make sure that the important people are there.
Organize a Getaway
If only a few of you are going to be present, you might want to take it up to the next level. You could organize going to a spa resort, or something that you think your friend would enjoy most. Bear in mind, strippers and sex toys might be offensive to someone, so it’s best to steer clear of those.
As the maid of honor, you are expected to make all this happen. In order to make it work seamlessly, you will have to do a lot of preparation and planning in advance, but it will all be worth it when the day comes. Consult a few other people who will be there, delegate some tasks and you’re good to go.
