If you’re planning your wedding, you will have all kinds of things to think about, and adding one more to the list might not seem like a great idea. However, when you understand it’s your bachelorette party and that it’s all part of the wedding tradition, you might not be too upset about the idea; in fact, you might be looking forward to it immensely.
Although some brides are skipping their bachelorette parties, this does seem a shame when they can be so much fun. If you’re on the fence about whether you should have one or not, here are some great reasons to go for it.
Why You Should Have A Bachelorette Party
You Want To
Over and above everything else, the main reason to have a bachelorette party, whether you are arranging it yourself or your bridesmaids are doing it for you, is because you want to have one. If you don’t want it, make sure your nearest and dearest are aware of that fact, otherwise, you might find you get a surprise party thrown for you, and if it’s not your thing, you aren’t going to have a good time.
Yet if you do want a bachelorette party, you should have one. You can arrange one in any way you want to, from a bar-hopping, nightclub filled evening to a break away somewhere exotic. You can go to a fancy restaurant or head to the movies and grab takeout with your friends. You can even choose to do something you’ve always wanted to do but never yet got round to, like renting a bus for your group and touring LA, seeing the stars’ houses and the famous landmarks.
It Gives You A Break
Planning a wedding is hard work, and although at the beginning you might be able to think of other things, by the time the big day gets closer and you still find you have plenty to do, taking an evening, day, or entire weekend off can be exactly what you need.
Although it may seem counterproductive to stop working for a short while, stepping away from the planning can help you see things from a different perspective and give you more insight into how things should go. Go and have fun with your friends and don’t think about the wedding at all, and when you get back to the planning, you’ll be able to be more productive.
A Bonding Experience
It’s best if the entire bridal party – including important family members – has a good bond. That way, there are no petty rivalries to deal with, and everyone can focus on helping the bride get ready and celebrating with her. A bachelorette party is the perfect way to help this process along. Remember, although you as the bride might know everyone incredibly well, that doesn’t mean your college friends know your work friends or that your family knows your in-laws.
Put them all together in a fun place with entertainment, and hopefully everyone will be friends by the end. This will make the wedding day itself a lot easier and give you one less thing to worry about.
