Are bachelorette parties as racy as bachelor parties can sometimes be? What do women really do at bachelorette parties? As the celebration of the ending of a woman’s single life, anything goes at a bachelorette party. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning a bachelorette party.
The bride isn’t responsible for paying for anything for this party in her honor, so planning well will ensure a great night for everyone involved. Invite only close friends who mesh well together. Tonight is a night for fun, not drama. Secure a limo or van and a designated driver so everyone can ride together. This will enable everyone to drink and party as late as they like without worrying about safety. Depending on how much time you have, plan a string of activities you can do to celebrate the bride. Bachelorette parties don’t have to center around drunken, naked revelry. There is more to celebration than that.
Start with pampering
Load up the van or limo, but don’t tell your guest of honor where you will be going. Plan several stops along the way. Stop first at a spa where the party can have facials, massages, and makeup application for the night of partying to come. Make sure the bride gets the best the spa has to offer. Consider herbal or mud wraps, manicures and pedicures, or massage. Steer clear of detoxifying treatments or deep-tissue massage if there will be drinking later; too much detoxification plus alcohol can result in feeling ill. Next, take the bride shopping for a dress for the night ahead and for lingerie for later. Dress the bride as a vixen, and don’t take no for an answer. This is her last night as a free woman, and she’ll feel like a new woman in some tight jeans and new heels.
