Things to Consider When Planning a Bachelorette Party
When planning a bachelorette party one of the main concerns is, what should be added to the bash list and what should be discarded. If you get some of these things wrong, your party could actually go flat. One of the questions that most people ask is whether the Mom should be at the hens party. This is largely dependent on what the bride wants. If her mother will be offended by what goes on there, or will find it difficult to socialise with her friends, then it may not be a good idea at all. Additionally, a hens night is usually a time when ladies let loose, have drinks, share some juicy gossip and tell embarrassing stories. If you are looking to have this kind of a night, then aunties and mums may not be very comfortable here.
The cost of the party is another consideration. Most times these parties will cost attendees a pretty penny and can cause arguments. Basically, if the contribution is very high, you are likely to have fewer attendees. The hens party activities you plan will basically inform your budget. It is therefore important to plan activities and come up with hens party ideas that will not cost an arm and a leg. You could have a party at a home and plan hens party games that will be fun for all your guests. Add food and drinks and you will have a great time.
From time to time, you will find some difficult guests who will be moaning about not having the money to attend. It is important to know that even though you would love to have all the invited guests attend there will always be those who make everything just too difficult. Know you can’t please them all. Of course, you should cut costs if the hens night activities planned are too expensive, but understand that there are people who only want to come to a party that costs them nothing.
If you will be having some out of town guests, it is a good idea to offer them hotel suggestions and be as helpful as possible. If they are family to the bride, it may be a good idea, to have it in a family member’s house. The idea is to keep their costs low so that they do not have to say no to your invite.
Regardless of your hens night ideas, you should make sure that the bride does not pay for anything. This should be her special night and the cost should be catered for. If there will be 10 of you, then the bride’s costs should be split between the 9 of you. All in all, if the costs are too high simply have a few bites, drinks, bachelorette party games and a great time.
