Keys to a bachelorette party: fun and a little mayhem
April 15, 2009
Traditionally bachelorette parties have involved limo rides, expensive dinners and closing out the evening at an exclusive club. However, the current state of the economy may not be conducive to such extravagance.
This isn't to say a bride-to-be can't have a great, if not better, time with her closest friends in an intimate gathering in someone's home or apartment.
Party decorations and theme should match the guest of honor's personality. If they are into sports, be sure to incorporate images of her favorite team or player. If she's more of a reality-television fan, then creating a party that mirrors a show such as Survivor may be the best option.
While some may still want the tried-and-true male stripper blasting Donna Summer's Hot Stuff, others may want to incorporate games as an alternative. One fun activity could be a trivia game with questions about the groom to see how well the bride knows her future husband. Just be sure they aren't too embarrassing.
Finally, don't forget to deck out the bride in special attire for the evening, which can include Mardi Gras beads and a Tiara so that, at least for one night, she can feel like a princess.
