We all know a bachelorette party is the perfect excuse to get away and spend some quality time with your girlfriends but at the end of the day it?s important to remember that this trip is all about the bride-to-be.
Here are a few of our tips to make this day all about her.
1. Be flexible:
The matching outfits may not be your thing, but if it?s really important for the bride-to-be, one night isn?t going to kill you. Besides, you may even score a few drinks when you go out! Whatever you end up doing, having the right attitude is the best way to ensure the bride has the best time!
2. Make it feel customized:
What’s the bride’s favorite color? Does she have a favorite cocktail? You’d be surprised what a few balloons and custom party favors can do. Show up a couple hours early or hire someone like us to set up your party for you! The bride walking into her pretty party will surely be an extra special surprise.
3. Plan for costs ahead of time:
It?s tradition to cover the bride?s expenses during the bachelorette. However, the moment when the bill comes and everyone has to split things or worry about whose turn is it to pay can get awkward. So, plan ahead! At Fling Before The Ring, we take care of that for you, but if you didn’t get a chance to work with us this time, establish a system that works for the entire group before your party date.
4. Get creative:
Whether you get the bartender to create a shot for her, the DJ to give her a shoutout, or hire a photographer to capture your city explorations, take as many opportunities you can to highlight the bride-to-be.
You can share photos but creating a photo album, video recap, or submit your party to be featured on a cool blog. No matter what you do, there are many ways to keep the fun memories going after everyone is packed and back home.
