Bachelorette Party Surprise or Not?
If the party isn’t going to be a surprise, consult with the bride when you assemble the guest list. Do take costs into account especially if everyone will be asked to contribute. Plan the event while taking into consideration the budget of all those who will be paying for it.
Bachelorette Party Stripper
Try to determine whether the bride will be offended by a stripper before you hire one for the party.
Make arrangements for a paid driver or limo service if the bachelorette party will involve drinking. Alternatively, rent hotel rooms for the group to crash in when the evening is over.
Tame Bachelorette Party
In recent years the tradition of bachelorette parties as a fun event has been gaining steam. Friends and members of the bridal party treat the bride-to-be to a girls’ night of fun, independent of housewares!
If there are presents, they are usually slightly naughty, gag gifts. Sometimes these parties attempt to copy male bashes by taking the bride to Chippendales-type strip clubs, or hiring private male strippers for the party.
But many bachelorette parties are just fun outings for the bride, her bridal party and her closest girlfriends.
