How to Plan the Perfect Bachelorette or Bachelor Party

How to Plan the Perfect Bachelorette or Bachelor Party

For many couples, bachelors and bachelorette parties are one of the most enjoyable parts of a wedding – you get to let your hair down, have some fun and get rid of some of that pre-wedding stress! Here are some tips for planning these events, from the team at our Function venue near Pretoria.

  • Decide on the hosts: These events are usually coordinated by the wedding party, so it’s good to organise a quick meeting where people discuss what they are willing to contribute – it doesn’t have to be all down to the best man or lead bridesmaid! This helps get everyone on the same page. This is also a good time to talk about the budget, whether presents are expected and so forth.
  • Plan the guest list: This will usually include close friends attending the wedding but can also be expanded to co-workers, friends who are unable to attend the wedding, and friends who are unable to attend because the wedding is very small or out of town.
  • Choose a date: Try to pick a date a few weeks or at least the weekend before the wedding. The night before (or even a day before that) isn’t advisable, as the last thing you want is a hungover couple and guests! The week of a wedding is also often very busy, so try to keep that in mind. Once you have a date, start booking your event well in advance as function venues, spas, hotels, and entertainers get booked up quickly!
  • Talk to the couple: Be sure to ask the couple what they would like before you go ahead and book anything. Some people want a traditional wild party, others want something low-key, and others prefer a mini-getaway. It’s important to stick to the general idea of what each person would like but add in a few fun surprises to make it special.
  • Have fun!
