Plan the Perfect Bachelorette Party

Plan the perfect bachelorette party. Here's the scoop on the basics, budgeting and the latest trends. Women are typically not interested in having the same type of party that men do. Women are more about fun group interaction and less about voyeurism. For that reason, there has been an increase in spa, wine tasting, sporting, destination and on-the-town parties.

When setting a budget, you need to keep in mind the guest list and their financial resources. Bachelorette parties range in price depending on the style of event you're planning, what entertainment you choose, location, number of guests and duration. The average party guest will spend $150 and up on food, drinks, club covers, transportation and gifts. When it comes to paying, usually all the guests chip in for the bachelorette party and the host picks up a special item. Typically it is the duty of the maid of honor to plan the bachelorette party.

We find that the most popular bachelorette party games are personalized ones encouraging interaction among the women plus with people they meet along the way. These can include a mystery grab bag, scavenger hunts and other "get to know" games such as adopting a party name and persona.

Party guests include the bridal party attendants and very close friends, usually all females and around the same age as the bride. You should not invite people who aren't invited to the wedding. Also, depending on the type of event you're planning and your relationships, you may not want to include people who are underage, parents or bosses.

The best time to have a bachelorette party is about 3-4 weeks before the wedding, allowing time for other wedding details to be completed and to recover from puffiness, etc. before the big day.

Plan the party based on the style, personality and budget of the group and bride-to-be. While a passion party and cocktails may be perfect for one bride and her guests, high tea and "get to know you" games may be perfect for another group. The most important tip in getting started is learning more about the bride-to-be and guests. Then you can put together an event that compliments the group and one that the bride-to-be will remember forever.
