Bachelorette Planning Checklist

Whether you’re planning an intimate dinner with the bride and her friends or going out for a night on the town, this Bachelorette Party checklist will help you prepare for the party of a lifetime.

3 Months Before the Bachelorette Party

  • Ask the bride what she wants (or doesn’t want) for her bachelorette party. Will it be dinner with close friends or a night out on the town?

  • While you want everyone’s attention focused on the bride, you don’t want to embarrass her. Talk with her to understand what she will and won’t be comfortable with.

  • Decide whether you want the party to be a surprise to the bride.

  • Set the party date. Aim for a weekend night about 2-3 weeks before the wedding that is convenient for the bride.

  • Start the guest list.

    2 Months Before the Bachelorette Party

  • Email or mail a save-the-date request to everyone on the guest list. If the party is out-of-town, make sure to include as many specific details as possible so guests can make travel and lodging arrangements.

  • If you’re starting at a restaurant, call ahead and ask about group rates and reservations. This will help you save money and time.

  • Make transportation reservations. Options include a limo, bus, van, etc.

  • If you’re having the bachelorette party at someone’s home, help plan out a menu and refreshments. Divide tasks among bridesmaids and enlist their help with games, decorations, refreshments, music, etc.
