How To Plan A Bachelorette Party The Bride Will Love

Fall is an extremely popular time for weddings, which means right about now there are a LOT of bachelorette parties taking place. This is a night for the bride to celebrate her upcoming wedding along with her closest girlfriends, saying good-bye to the single life once and for all. It's a special time, so WhereBridesGo.com not only has the best bachelorette party supplies online for you, but we've also come up with a few tips to make this a night you will never forget.



Decide on a main activity
You will need to decide first and foremost, does the bride prefer a quiet, calm night with her girlfriends or a loud, crazy evening out on the town. Plan it with the bride's interests in mind. You can have a slumber party, a spa day, a weekend trip, or a night full of bar-hopping, to name a few ideas. Once you choose what to do, it will be easy to narrow down a place. If you will be going out and drinking, hire a driver for the night so everyone can enjoy themselves and still get home safely. 

Find fun party supplies
Once again, let the bride guide the direction the party decorations will go. Some women are okay with half-naked male blow-up dolls and penis straws, but others are not. A little embarrassment for the bride is to be expected, but don't go overboard and do anything she would find distasteful. 

Focus on letting anyone passing by know exactly what is going on. Fun buttons that tell everyone "I'm with the bride," and "Bachelorette Party In Progress" confetti and banners are lots of fun. WhereBridesGo.com has adorable glasses and drink cup cozies specifically for this type of occasion. 


Dress the part
Once again, if you will be going out, the idea is to draw as much attention to your party as possible. People generally love getting in on the fun when a bachelorette party passes by. The bride definitely needs something to point her out, like a cute veil or sash to wear. The whole group can join in and wear "Team Bride" sashes as well. 


You can all choose to make a dress code for the night too. Some examples would be: all guests wearing black and the bride wearing white; everyone in wedding colors; everyone in prom dresses or old bridesmaid gowns; "Team Bride" t-shirts and tutus:  or any type of dress code that ties everyone's outfits together. Have fun with it! 

Don't forget the food
Make plenty of snacks for everyone to eat, especially if you will be drinking later in the night. If it's a bar-hopping party, make sure you have snacks for when you get back home too. Another option is to go out to dinner as a group. Reservations are definitely suggested, and make sure the staff knows what's going on in case they want to do something special for the bride.  

Play a few games
No matter what type of theme you go with, throwing a game or two in the mix is always good for a few laughs. Our "Bride To Be Bingo" is made with bridal showers in mind, but instead of filling in the blanks with names of gifts the bride will open, pencil in things you plan to see that night. You could even fill the circles full of dares to perform and see who can finish first. We also have some awesome party coasters that each feature a great icebreaker question for the group to ask each other. 



Take lots of pictures???
This can be tricky. You will want to document all of the fun you will be having together, but in some cases, what happens at the bachelorette party should stay at the bachelorette party. Give the group guidelines about what is and is not acceptable when it comes to sharing pictures of the party. Let the bride have final approval about any photos that will be shared outside of the group.


The main thing that you need to do to throw a bachelorette party that the bride will love is to cater the party to the bride, not to what the other guests want. This night is to honor her, not for her friends to go crazy on her behalf. You can still plan plenty of surprises for the bride-to-be, but her input is important. Visit WhereBridesGo.com and let the bachelorette party and bridal shower sections of our online wedding accessories store give you a few ideas about where to begin. Cover the basic areas we've discussed above, then get ready to have one of the best nights of your life!

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
