Wedding bells are always a time of celebration. Lots of planning and lots of excitement lead up to the big day. Extended family and friends from far and wide come together to celebrate the union of those in love. While most of the planning is a joy – it can also be stressful for the bride. Traditionally, the bride’s maid of honor plans a Bachelorette party on her behalf. Following these recommendations from the wedding planning experts and you’ll be sure to create a fun evening full of lasting memories.
The guest list is nearly as important as the event itself. The groom’s sisters and the bride’s sisters should be at the top of the list. Also include each of the bridesmaids in the event. This could end up being a list of as few as three and as many as twenty. Once you know the number of guests you’ll have, it will be much easier to plan the perfect event. You can do something as elaborate as a weekend away or as simple as a fun evening out on the town.
Any time fun and alcohol are combined, it’s a great idea to take advantage of the savings offered by Groupon coupons and arrange for transportation with a service such as Uber. This is as simple as downloading the App and completing the necessary information. Ensure that enough participants have the App for each guest to have a ride home or back to the hotel. Next, have some fun and arrange to have a veil for the bride to wear throughout the evening. This can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like. For large parties, make reservations well in advance to secure a table at your favorite restaurant. Many restaurants have private rooms to accommodate large parties.
As guests arrive, have them participate in a simple time capsule for the bride. Simple have a stack of index cards and pens. On a gift bag write the phrase: “ In ten years the bride will be…….” Each of the guests can write their predictions on a card. What fun for the bride to read in ten years. It will also bring back great memories of those that attended this special event!
