October 06, 2015 at 6:00 am
Lately, it seems like everywhere I turn, someone is getting engaged. The uptick in matrimonial promises means that it’s only a matter of time before getting asked to be a bridesmaid. Although the wedding itself is for the bride and groom, you should enjoy the journey as well. The bachelorette party is one major place to start the fun of wedding festivities. Here are five tips to guarantee you enjoy it just as much as the bride:
1. Keep to your Budget
Just like wedding costs can add up, so can those of a bachelorette event. Don’t be afraid to tell the person planning the festivities what your budget is, and try your best to stick with it. You definitely don’t want to spend too much and regret it later.
2. Speak Up
Feel free to give your own suggestions. Being part of a bridal party means you know the bride enough that she trusts you, so make sure to give ideas on what to do and how to go about enjoying the time. You should also be honest about what you are comfortable with in advance to avoid surprises later.
3. Capture the Moments
The bachelorette party is a night to remember, and what better way than with pictures? These pictures will last a lifetime and the fun times will be a cherished memory for all. Plus, the pictures will always bring a good laugh when you look back on them.
4. Always keep the bride in mind
Although the bachelorette festivities are a time for you to wind down, don’t forget who it’s for — the bride! Try your best to make sure she isn’t stressed and is enjoying the moment with her amazing bridal party. After all, she’s the only reason the event is happening, so make her the center of attention.
5. Make the best of it
Yes, the party is for the bride, but your presence is valuable. Make sure you enjoy it almost as much as t. This moment brings the bridal party together, so make the best of it.
With all this in mind, there is no way you can’t enjoy yourself while celebrating your friend’s upcoming wedding. A bachelorette weekend is a unique chance to create a strong bond between the bride and her bridal party. This party is a once in a lifetime event (we hope), so make sure you enjoy the ride and capture the memories.
