Planning a bachelorette party and a Photoshoot could be either fun or stressful…so let’s make it fun, right?
If you are a bridesmaid or a maid-of-honor that’s been given the task of planning a weekend for the bride to celebrate beside her closest circle of friends, you may feel the pressure to plan something memorable for the years to come. So, before you get started to keep cool and take note of these six important things to keep in mind while planning your bachelorette party photo shoot.
Listen to the Bride
You know her well and you know her style. Would she prefer to go for an SPA and massage weekend with her girl-friends or would she prefer to go wild all night and drink liters of beers? Talk to her, try to guess and create a fun moment between friends that is matching with her character.
Set a budget
You may be able to spend 500€ on the bachelorette party as the maid of honor, but the other bridesmaids may only be able to spend 100€ or less. Before you make any plans, reach out to all the women invited and see what their budget is. Then find a way to accommodate everyone if possible. And if one or two friends are out of money to help them out as a group or reduce the overall budget.
Dress like twins and take care of small details
The bachelorette party photo shoot is 100% part of the activities of the day and it has to be a fun moment! Choose a theme and get dressed in the same way. For instance: rock (jeans, converse and leather jacket), sailor-styled T-shirts, flower crowns, bright little dresses, black-dress and bright panties, super stylish high heels, white dresses for the girls and red for the bride to be, all in pink,…
Think about cool accessories as well: balloons, confetti, paillettes, flowers and all your good mood and theatre abilities
Then find a photographer you get along with so that (s)he can take care of bachelorette party photo shoot and party for a while with you.
Ask someone else to plan it
If your personal life is keeping you busy or you are not keen on planning a bachelorette party and the bachelorette party photoshoot, hire a planning service to take care of the organizational part. So you can focus better on the emotional and the human part.
Have a backup plan
When you’re dealing with travel plans and a group of people, things may not go as smoothly as you hoped. It’s always good to have a backup plan in case the flight is delayed, the day turns out to be rainy or the bride just doesn’t feel like doing an activity that you thought she’d be excited about.
Go with the flow
Since there are so many moving parts to planning a bachelorette party photo shoot, try to just go with the flow. Even if you spent weeks planning the party and then see all your plans changing in seconds, keep a positive attitude and the rest of the bridesmaids will join you.
Have fun and let’s create positive memories together!
