3. Create a fantastic playlist
Music is the soul of any party. Without music, everything is just so melancholic, drudgery and sad. The task of jumbling over at least a 100 songs must begin months before so that you aren’t left all confounded and resourceless at the end. The playlist must include Karaoke songs, old school classics, and some cool indie chick numbers.
4. Book accommodations and events
Once you know the number of guests attending the party, you can look up accordingly and select whichever places fulfill every criterion. Just make sure that the place you’ve booked is of the bride’s choice or is one of her favorites. Make a list beforehand of things you’ll include in the party to make it all sassy and interesting.

Sometime later in life, you can make a collage out of them and gift it on a future birthday of the bride-to-be. If you are low on budget, you can ask a friend who knows her way around the camera to photo shoot the entire event. don’t forget to ask her to capture some embarrassing moments to laugh later at.
7. Plan some fun-filled games
Simply chit-chatting can dull a party very soon. It is neither possible for the host nor for the bride-to-be to keep everyone engaged and keep on interacting with everyone. Someone will always be left out in the bustle. Also, many will be there who won’t be familiar with the other guests. In such scenarios, games can definitely help to sparkle the party up. There can be truth or dare, karaoke singing, paper dance or everyone can bring lingerie which describes their persona the best.
8. Share memories
The party must have an emotional angle to it, something that you all will remember and cherish forever. Ask everyone to come one by one and share the most intimate memory that they have with the bride-to-be. Later, you can ask them to pen down the same memory, put it in a glass jar and gift it to the bride-to-be.
9. Plan a surprise dance
A few of the very close friends of the bride-to-be and assemble together before a few months of the party and choreograph an item number or any dance together and once everyone is busy in the party, BAM! Here comes the surprise. This will leave everyone in an exalted mood, all freshen up and happily surprised. Go for it!
10. End with gifts
The best way to end the party is to end with gifts. Anything which all of the guests are planning to give on the wedding day can instead be given at the end of the bachelorette party. This will leave the bride-to-be happy, excited and feeling all special. Gifts cheer everyone up and there won’t be the sadness of the bachelorette party coming to an end because then it will be followed by the exultation of what’s inside those wrapping paper.
