For a Fun Adventure, Try the Train

Maids Of Honor: Three Ways To Throw A Bachelorette Party She'll Never Forget

by Krin Murphy

As the maid of honor, it's your responsibility to organize a memorable bachelorette party for the bride-to-be. This should be more than a night of bar hopping and dancing with her friends. It should be a memorable night filled with unique experiences that she'll never forget through all her years as a married woman. Here are some ideas to help take the bachelorette experience from everyday party to grand adventure.

Match the limo ride to the party theme.

First, you'll need to pick a bachelorette party theme. Country, old Hollywood, and red carpet are all popular themes, but feel free to pick any theme you think the bride will identify with. Once you have your theme solidified, start planning the limo ride to match that theme. This way, the time spent in transit will be just as exciting as the time spent in the actual venues you visit. Here are some ideas:

  • Pre-mix themed drinks and store them in a cooler to enjoy during the limo ride. (Check that your limo service lets you drink alcohol on board, first.)
  • Gather some simple decorations to hang up in the limo before you embark.
  • Make a playlist with music that fits the theme, and give it to the driver—most limos are set up to play music from any mp3 player or phone.

Have a "surprise stop" where you all present her with gifts.

You're going to want to give the bride some idea of where you're going throughout the night. After all, this is her party. But coordinate with the girls to make one stop she has not been told about. You could stop at a park, someone's house, or another quiet location that you've pre-decorated. Have a small gift from each of the bachelorette party attendees waiting there to be opened. Make sure these are fun gifts—like casual clothing, jewelry, and wine—not serious items like kitchen gear, since she'll get plenty of that at the actual wedding.

Pay for her to get "dolled up" before the party.

The bride will feel even more special if she's dressed to kill on the night of the party. Take her to get her hair, nails, and makeup done before the big event. You can even take her out to buy a special dress to wear for the bachelorette party if she doesn't have one picked out already. If this expense is too much for you alone, ask the other girls in the bridal party if they're willing to split the cost.

With the strategies above, she'll have a bachelorette party she'll never forget. You won't forget it, either! For more information, contact local professionals like Deluxe Limo and Party Bus.
