A bachelorette party is one of those special nights in any bride to be’s life. A mixture of celebrating their upcoming nuptials, thanking their friends and bridal party for their support throughout the wedding and spending some quality time with your girlfriends (or guy friends!) before the big day.
There is no rule on what this awesome event in your life should be like. Your bachelorette party should be as personal and individual as you are! You can have themed nights out that match the theme of the wedding or go crazy and choose an awesome theme you love but have never had the opportunity to celebrate before!
Typically it is the maid of honor or bridal party that organizes the bachelorette party but commonly the bride gets involved too or even plans it all herself.

Time To Talk Parties
The first step to any party or event is to sit down and discuss it. So the Bride and her closest friends and party organizers should sit down and talk about what the event should look like.
Is this going to be a big party? A vacation abroad, city break or a relaxing spa day? The options are limitless so take some time to brainstorm ideas until you have found something that seems like the perfect idea.
Once you have got the main ideas sorted out then have a think about the details and practicalities of the ideas. If it’s a big vacation then your guests will need time to save up so make sure you take this into account.
There are a lot of things to talk about at this stage but the big ones are:-
- Dates and times
- Who is paying for what
- Guest list
- Party theme
- Timings and deadlines.
Once you have all this worked out then divide up the responsibilities. Make sure you have a note of the names, email addresses and phone numbers of all the guests.
Let Everyone Know
Dates and ideas are sorted so it’s time to let the guests know! The easiest way to do this is to send an email to let everyone know the basic details and date in plenty of time.
They need to book vacation days at work and save up. Make sure you have asked people to RSVP and keep a record of who has replied and who hasn’t. Some people will need chasing up for an answer.
You can always follow this up with a personalized invitation sent to their home address. A wonderful personalized touch would be to send them a small party favor gift with the dates, times and venue laser engraved onto a small and useful custom pocket token or gift they can keep close to hand.
This is a thoughtful gesture that will make everyone feel like they are truly a special part of your plans.
Take a look at these customizable wedding favor ideas for inspiration. Many of them are small enough to pop in the mail with an invite.
Make Any Bookings Needed
Many venues need booking upfront and often need deposits so make sure whoever is in charge of the invites and RSVPs has let everyone know when they need to have paid a deposit to you and when other payments are due.
Make sure you take into account booking venues, workshops, hotels, spa treatments, cars and any entertainment you might have decided upon.
There is a lot to remember so make a list and tick things off when they are complete.
Take care of the details
It is the details that make any event special and once the big things are out of the way then it’s a great time to start thinking about how to make this party a night everyone will remember.
Order and buy any props you need for the theme, such as personalized drinkware featuring custom laser engraved titles and details. Make sure you have thought about how you are going to get these things to the venue. Especially if you are going on vacation. They need to either fit in your bags or if your venue allows it, to be delivered directly there.
Keep in touch with your guests and make sure they are excited and getting anything they need together. It is also a great idea to confirm any bookings to make doubly sure that everything is organized and running smoothly.
Make it extra special
A bachelorette party is a special event and you can reflect that by making your guests feel like they are a special and appreciated part of your life. A personalized gift is a great way to show them just how much they all mean to you.
Make up a gift bag of bachelorette party essentials and add a couple of personalized touches. If you are going for a spa retreat then choosing gifts that can be customized and reflect the event such as some custom manicure sets are an awesome idea.
The options are endless when it comes to personalized gifts suitable for your party guests. We also love these personalized wine gifts. They can be customized with names and the date of the bachelorette party.
