What better way to help the blushing bride-to-be say farewell her carefree single life than with close friends and family -- who can gather 'round to help her celebrate the big step into married life!
Even through the jokes and laughter (and maybe even a hunky male stripper hired for the occasion!) a bachelorette party demonstrates to the bride-to-be that she has trusted friends that will always be their for support.
Traditionally, it is usually the maid of honor who takes the responsibility of finding the venue or for enlisting the other bridesmaids to help with planning. Be sure to schedule your big bachelorette bash at least several weeks beforehand. This will leave you enough time to send out the invitations, and arrange for any entertainment or party games you have planned for the night.
Bachelorette party games & activities
FUN, of course, should be a big part of the celebration so make sure to include lots of games and activities that will keep the party jumping.
Include quizzes like "Who Knows the Bride-to-Be?" with prizes awarded for the most accurate (or funniest!) answers. Also consider scavenger hunt games for guests to search out hidden items ranging from naughty to nice.
For a sentimental journey, you may also want to the party centered around a This is Your Life ceremony as everyone recalls memories old and new. If that's too sweet, listen to the gales of laughter when you include stories about the guest of honor's most embarrassing moments in a segment called "Oh No She Didn't!"
