weekend she’s always dreamed of.
If you are the bride, you’ll need to grab coffee or tea with your BFF/bridesmaid and/or planning committee and share all of these ideas and inspirations with them.
Details like location, theme, and guest list plus smaller details like whether matching outfits will be required or what kind of excursions might be on the itinerary are essential to know before the planning process begins.
Step 2 - Get The Girls On Board
Just like the wedding, it is also important that you save the date of the bachelorette party weekend, this information should be sent out way ahead of time.
This is important for two reasons: One, to lock in the guest list and make sure everyone has plenty of time to plan and save up, and two, so everyone can start pitching in with planning the bachelorette party.
These invites don't have to be expensive because online invitations are fun, often free, and there’s no risk of anyone losing the info! Just don't forget to include the date, location, and your email for questions.
Step 3 - Jot Down the Big Details
Once you get the idea that who is up for the bachelorette party, you start zeroing in on the big details when it comes to how to plan the bachelorette party. Choose a hotel or cottage, find the right flights or rental car, and lock in any must-haves!

Collect all that cash book the flights/tickets for the gang asap! If they are booking their own flights/transportation, set a deadline for them to do that, too.
