The hard part is done. You met the one, they proposed, the rest should be easy peasy! Not so fast. That wedding planning is already a little stressful and it’s supposed to be about you having fun and declaring your love… Well if the wedding is always a little stressful, the bachelorette party is here to balance it out.
Bachelorette parties used to be a night out on the town with the ladies but there’s a lot more to it these days. Destination bachelorette parties, weekend trips, girls flying in from other parts of the map… how can you keep track of it all?
Maybe we can help. We’ve organized a checklist of the 4 most important bachelorette party must-haves that you have to bring with you.
Ok, some of you may be thinking that games are no fun. Bah Humbug! Games are a good time! The sillier and cheesier, the better.
Don’t just settle for just any game, take it up a notch. There are games like Social Sabotage that force you to send silly texts to not-so-silly contacts on your phone. Or how about the Newlywed Game, where you can solicit the help of the bride’s partner to create a list of questions to poke a little fun at the bride-to-be.
Add a host of games to your bachelorette party checklist. You can find more bachelorette games here.
Ok, this isn’t a real kit as much as it is an amalgamation of important items that you need to look, feel, and be your best.
The Miss America kit should include:
These are essential bachelorette party must haves! The Miss America Kit is more than just a bag filled with the goodies you need to look and feel your best- it’s a lifestyle choice. Pack one for the bride and the other ladies too and be the real heroine that everyone needs but no one deserves.
Some traditions are fun, kooky, and necessary. Trust us when we say that every bachelorette party that doesn’t include a bachelorette sash is an opportunity wasted. Not only are bachelorette sashes elegant, but they are a keepsake that the bride will cherish forever.
Every time she goes through her closet and spots that sash she’ll be transported back to the night when you drank too much, spilled too many secrets, and maybe cried a little… happy cries through.
Don’t miss the opportunity to buy the bride something truly special. Get that bachelorette sash!
Bonus Tip: if you’re going out for drinks, the sash goes a long way to get a few freebies from bartenders and patrons. So splurge on a sash, and get paid back in party favors!
Yes, you have to bring a gift for the bride, and the more personal the better. All the gifts she’s going to get at the wedding are either going to be for the house, or they’ll be impersonal like money and gift cards. This is your chance to get her something special that’s just for her.
It doesn’t have to be fancy, it doesn’t have to be expensive, it just has to be thoughtful. Think of pictures of the two of you, or a signed copy of a book she loves, or a quote she loves etched into a bookmark…
Thoughtfulness is the key to making the bride feel special. So let your imagination run a little wild.
Now go out there and throw a bachelorette party that they will talk about at future weddings with envy!
