Mistake 1: Forgetting to Budget The Bachelorette Party
Drinks, club fees, party favors, exotic dancers?? The costs of any bachelorette party can add up quickly. To avoid spending more than what is comfortable for you and the other bridesmaids, take some time to make a clear budget as well as research less expensive options; wedding party discounts or packages will allow your party budget to stretch further.
Budget conscious bachelorette party tips:
- An all-local bar crawl! Don’t waste precious bucks on transportation to the city.
- Throw a pre-party at a bridesmaids house to get ready for the evening. Ask each guest to bring a bottle champagne, beer or a snack to save on extra drinks at the bar.
- Have bridesmaids swap dresses so they don’t need to buy a new outfit.
Mistake 2: Not Asking Bridesmaids For Money Before The Bachelorette Party
Ask bridesmaids to contribute to the party ahead of time.We recommend adding in and disclosing a payment buffer (asking bridesmaids to contribute more than you budgeted – JUST in case!) The buffer (refunded later) will not only help avoid awkward conversations on the dance floor, but it will also prevent the bride from getting dragged into financial woes.
