Now you have got yourself the maid of honour gig, the next step is planning a perfect hen party. This is one of your biggest responsibilities and you want to be sure the bride-to-be has the time of her life before she is taken. What is expected of the bridesmaid on this day? How do plan an awesome hen do party?
Here are a few important tips.
Decide on a Date
Deciding on a date beforehand is a very important planning factor. You should make the hen party plan within 5 to 6 weeks in advance before the big day comes knocking. This gives the expected guests enough time to plan and be comfortable for the two big events – and of course, the bride would need enough time to recover and feel great before her big day. This would also ensure you avoid planning a last minute hen party.
Ask For Help
Do not engage in the planning and execution alone. Ask other bridesmaids who have organized such parties for assistance. You would also do well to ask the bride-to-be for specifics and details she has in mind for the party – do not spring up surprises the bride may not be comfortable with. This will provide a great guide for your planning.
Set a Budget
While it is your responsibility to organize the hen party, this does not mean it is your responsibility to finance the entire event. Everyone invited – especially close girlfriends can chip in equally to finance this party. Setting a budget on time is also very crucial to a successful hen party.
