Set the date for the party so that is does not conflict with any of the other wedding related events and parties that are scheduled. The bachelorette party should not be planned for the night before the wedding as many of the quests will also be attending the wedding. You want everyone rested and looking good for the big day.

The guest list should be compiled by you and the bride to be. Deciding who will be attending the party can have a bearing on where and what festivities will be planned for the evening.

The location, when it comes to choosing where to have the party there are many options. You can have a nice dinner party at a friend’s house or a night visiting her favorite hang outs as a single woman. The personality of the bride to be should be considered in all of the bachelorette party planning.

The type of food that will be served, choosing the location can help in deciding the menu. Finger foods, hors d’oeuvres, or a full meal can be served at the bachelorette party. A pot luck where everyone brings a dish is good for parties being held at someone's home.

The theme for the party can be chosen to match the personality of the bride to be. You can hire a masseuse and have a pampering night to give the bride a time to relax. Or if she is more on the wild side, a night on the town with good food and dancing might be the way to go.

The gifts for the bachelorette party can also follow the theme of the party. Gag gifts are very popular for this type of party and games are also fun activities for bachelorette parties.

If alcoholic beverages will be served at the party ensure that designated drivers are available to get everyone home safely. Another consideration would be to hire a limousine to take care of the transportation for the party.
