Bachelorette Party Tip of the Day #2 – Guest List

Guest List

Wehn making your guest list for the bachelorette party, you should focus on memories or meaning rather than going big. What is going to make this party memorable(in a good way) for the Bride? Should you invite EVERYONE she knows or just a few close friends. Mom? Grandma? Super gossip Aunt Sally? The most common size we see for bachelorette parties is 8 to 12 people. Beyond 12 it becomes more difficult to manage, to plan, and make decisions. Larger parties can be fun but make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons.

 

Tips for Planning Your Bachelorette Party – Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of our Tips for Planning Your Bachelorette Party.

  • Decide if you want the bachelorette party to have a theme, think about what costumes, props and accessories you might need.  For example a burlesque theme.
  • Keep in touch with the people invited on your event page, this helps if you need to arrange meeting times and places and any modes of transport.
  • Your event page will send out reminders for guests to pay, what to bring. You don’t want Auntie Carol showing up to a spa day without her swimsuit.
  • Not everyone will know each other so the event page will help get you and the other guests get acquainted before the event
  • Booking an event with FireFly will give you piece of mind when booking an event, we’ve found only the best vendors for your event. You don’t want to look like a let down before you have even gotten to the wedding day and your maid of honor duties
  • You will feel more at ease knowing that all the groundwork has been covered, remember we are the experts and it isn’t our first time!!
  • You will feel comfortable knowing that the brides future in-laws are comfortable as well.
  • Plan to have a good time and you will.

Good luck with planning the bachelorette party! If you’re in Orange County, Los Angeles, or San Diego check out our party packages -> http://www.fireflygroupevents.com
