Dec 19, 2017 —  Wedding planning is an enjoyable and exciting process but it can also be a stressful and time-consuming experience. The bachelorette party, then, is a chance for the bride’s friends to take her mind off some of that stress by giving her a day or a weekend that she won’t ever forget.

If you book flights early, a bachelorette party abroad has never been so easy. But this will need some extra planning to ensure that the perfect trip is pulled off. Here we have put together some tips and tricks on how to plan a bridal party aboard that is stress-free - and there’s also some useful further reading here.

Think About What the Bride Wants

An obvious one but by far the most important thing to focus on because an amazing party will be delivered if it is exactly what the bride wants. Some will want loud and raucous, with L Plates and strippers, but others will want a much quieter affair. So, throw out all the misconceptions that you have about stereotypical bachelorette parties and get back to basics.

Set dates and a budget before anything else because money will always be a tricky subject to approach for any occasion, especially if you don’t know all the other guests that well. It is important for you to ascertain how much each person can and is willing to spend on this trip - guests might be happy to stump up for a long weekend in Spain or might only want a day and night in a city nearby.

A bachelorette party is, of course, a chance for the bride to spend time with her best friends and she will want everyone there if they can, so try not price some people out.

Give Plenty of Notice

You must also pick a date that is suited to everyone, and aim to book as far in advance as you possibly can so that you are able to get the best possible deals on flights and accommodation. Also make sure you give guests plenty of notice too so that people have the time to book off work, arrange child care, and so on.

Travel as a Group

Don’t leave people to book and organize their own flights. If you do leave guests to their own devices, the chances of plans falling into chaos are too high - if someone is too slow in getting organised they might miss out on a seat on the plane, for example. Anyway, it makes so much more sense to do it all together and travel as a group. This way you won’t get stuck waiting for people and you can all be having fun together. Organize a meeting point and make sure everyone is there in good time.

Organize an Itinerary

You don’t want your entire trip planned out as nobody enjoys time away that is too regimented but, equally, to make the most of your bachelorette weekend you will want to have something planned ahead so you are not sitting around bored. This can seem like a bit of a daunting task but there are a few ways that you can make it easier.

For example, this website has some great tools for helping to organize the bachelorette party, from a downloadable to do list and budget planner, to advice on creating an itinerary. Remember, with any itinerary, leave some down time so that guests can just catch up with each other and unwind. Don’t pack the day full.

Hooray! Now the hard work is done. You’ve planned everything and now you just need to enjoy it all. Be sure to take lots of pictures to make a memories book afterwards.
