One of the best things about being a bride is coming up with any excuse to wrangle up your gals. But let’s face it, sometimes we’ve got to celebrate on a budget. There are so many easy ways to save a little cash along the way, and today we’re sharing how to throw that fabulous bachelorette weekend without forcing your bridesmaids into bankruptcy.
Keep it local
From college roomies to primary school BFFs, we all have those close girlfriends from all over the globe. Pick a spot that’s convenient for the majority of your girl gang to avoid $500 flights to Vegas and a hotel tab to match. Trust me, they will be so grateful! If you are planning a jet-setting party, try to chip in where possible; pick up the tab at the bar one night or surprise your bridesmaids with a limo to dinner as a fun thank you.
Spread out the fun!
Plan a few easy events throughout the weekend so if someone can’t make it to the dinner on Friday night, they can meet you for mimosas and manis Saturday afternoon! This is also an easy way to avoid the intense fifty-six email chain between your bridesmaids to pick the perfect evening date.
The more the merrier
If you have lots of friends from every stage of your life (middle school, college, that old waitressing gig) inviting the same gals to your bridal shower as your bachelorette party will make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. Your wedding is also about bringing different groups of friends and family together, and it’s such a blast to see them have fun together!
Check, please – headache free
Find all-inclusive deals such as Prix Fixe menus and $20 bottomless to avoid the dreaded group check payments. It will guarantee your transition from dinner to dancing goes off without a hitch!
Chances are your girl gang knows you better than you think they do. They are excited to celebrate with you, so create a fun hashtag to document your shenanigans, do what makes you laugh and celebrate in style. The most important tip is to have fun and do not forgot those Thank You notes!
