Set Boundaries

If strippers and alcohol just aren’t your idea of the best possible time, you need to let your bridesmaids and maid of honor know that up front. Give them some general guidelines so you can all have a great time and won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable.

Cost Issues

Many brides fly out to Vegas for their bachelorette parties, or do something equally as fun…and expensive. If your heart is set on something like this, realize that your bridesmaids may not be able to afford it. For “all out” parties like this, consider paying for it yourself or at least chipping in a sizeable amount.

Allow the Planners to Plan

Although you might have some suggestions, you simply can’t take over the planning. If you were to do that, why have your bridesmaids even participate in the planning? Allow them to plan and make it fun for you, and don’t forget to be appreciative. After all, they’re working as hard as they can to ensure that you have a great time.

Show Your Gratitude

It always makes someone feel good when something they planned has worked out well. Make sure you shower your bridesmaids and maid of honor with lots of compliments during the bachelorette party and tell them what a fantastic time you’re having.
