Honeymoon planning page

Most of my friends spend their days planning their wedding dress and checking out floral arrangements online, but I'm comparing cruises and highlighting hotel packages. I can't wait to go and spend weeks with just me and my new husband exploring the world and having the trip of a lifetime - together as man and wife. There are so many options for a honeymoon, and I want to make sure our honeymoon is unforgettable. Who knows when we'll be able to go on a big holiday like this again? I can't wait to share our journey with my readers.

The Perfect Bachelorette Bash: Ideas For An Unforgettable Party

Travel Blog

Your friend is getting married, and she's made you a bridesmaid! When that exciting day comes, it's your job as a bridesmaid to create the best bachelorette party possible. With a little creativity and some fun, you can usher the bride into her next stage of life with a bang.

Make it an Event

Parties with strippers and silly games are passé. Brides today want memories that will last a long time. Like most events, you'll need a theme to make this event successful. Here are some ideas to guide you toward your perfect theme:

  • Friendship memories- Chances are, most of the bridesmaids will be from a close group of friends. Have your theme revolve around a trip you've taken together or a big experience you've had together. If you use this take, you'll be focussing on the life she's lived before her marriage. This is a great way to celebrate the years before her wedding.
  • Romance- You may want to find a theme that works with the history the bride and groom have together. This is a great idea because it helps focus everyone on the excitement of the bride's new life.
  • Random and Fun- The theme doesn't have to be significant to the bride's life. Whatever it is, a theme is a good starting place to form the perfect party.

Start With a Memory

You may want to go dancing, bar hopping or do other wild things. That's great. However, for a memorable weekend, it's a good idea to start with an event to kick things off. For instance, if you start of the party with a concert from the bride's favorite band, she'll always associate the party with a fun memory. Think of an activity like a concert, performance or physical activity to get things going.

Have a Plan

Going where the night takes you may sound like a good idea, but it may leave you bored and scrambling for things to do. After your initial activity, have a definite place to go to keep the party going. It will probably be late at this point, so dancing or another similar activity is perfect. Make a list of places you want to go that are open late. Check for entrance regulations, fees and closing times so you are well prepared before you go.

Protect Your Bride

It is your responsibility to make sure your bride comes out of the bachelorette party physically and emotionally strong. In other words, don't let her make mistakes she'll regret. Here are some tips to keep everybody safe:

  • Keep someone sober- If there is alcohol involved in the night, make sure somebody is sober enough to make rational decisions for everyone. Somebody needs to know when the bride (and everyone else) has had enough.
  • Hire a driver- A driver will make sure you get from place to place safely. Whether you hire a limousine service or you go with a party bus, you can keep partying throughout the night without worrying about driving. A party bus from a service like bucks party bus hire is a great idea because it is an original way to party on your way to the parties.
  • Rent a room- Find a hotel that is in the area of town you'll be visiting. Make sure your party bus driver knows where to drop you off at the end of the night.

A bachelorette party is the last, perfect night to share your friendship and celebrate the bride before the big wedding day. With a little planning, you can make it perfect for everyone.
