How to Throw a Destination Bachelorette Party
Did you know that a whopping 19% of engagements happen in December? Holidays and love go hand-in-hand, for sure! And if you had a friend who just got engaged this holiday season, that means a bachelorette party is in your near future.
With that in mind, we culled together the top tips for destination bachelorette parties. Love may thrive in snuggly, winter conditions, but parties and girl time calls for the beach!
- Consult the bride. If she prefers quiet beach time over clubbing, that will guide your planning process. Also be sure the destination offers something for everyone at a price that won’t wipe out their savings.
- Find the ideal location. Your bride’s preferences will help you narrow down whether you are looking for a hotel with an awesome spa, an all-inclusive resort, or any other place that will keep your group happy.
- Who pays for what. Traditionally, aside from travel expenses, the entire group is expected to cover all activities and meal expenses for themselves as well as the bride.That said, if the bride insists on buying the group a round shots, don’t fight her on it. She just wants to repay you with a fun gesture to keep the party going.
- Favors and decorations. It is acceptable to ask for contributions in either money or time to decorate the hotel room or suite for the bride and the group. If you are the maid of honor, it’s a nice gesture to buy favors or a welcome gift for the party guests. Oneiro’s Sunchasers Ready To Go makes a perfect welcome gift. It’s elegant and made for beach destinations, so everyone will look instagram-worthy on your trip! It also saves everyone from having to check bags so the entire group can get to your destination quickly and start the party.
