Three of my dearest friends are getting married this year and I am seriously on the bachelorette party circuit! I'll be headed to parties in Austin (my hometown), Nashville and Atlantic City this summer and I couldn't be more excited.
When first starting to help plan a party there are a few must-dos to get accomplished:
1. Make your dinner reservations- For large groups, securing dinner reservations is a MUST! Doing this in advance is the most important part of the party since everyone expects to eat during the party. For my best friend's party in Nashville we are doing an awesome group dinner at Pinewood Social, which includes bowling and fun!
2. Secure a place to stay- I like to use Booking.com to start browsing hotel options. Once I've decided on a place, I religiously check back to see if prices have gone by. For our Nashville bachelorette, I ended up booking with hotels.com because of their awesome cancellation policy. I ended up finding a much cheaper hotel a month after we booked and was able to cancel our hotel for that one.
3. Send out a brief trip overview so everyone can book travel- Once you have a rough timeline, send out an email to everyone letting them know what they should arrive and depart. Also let them know if they will need to pack anything specific like bathing suits or tennis shoes.
Once you have these three items down, you'll only have a few small items left to plan the best bachelorette party! Let me know if you have any great Nashville or Atlantic City tips in the comments!
