Firstly and most importantly, you need to set a budget so as to go accordingly go ahead with the planning. All the bridesmaids can team up and share the expenses equally. Make sure everyone is comfortable with the budget.
Who all will be a part of this bachelorette bash is another thing you need to figure out. It is always better to invite only close pals for a bachelorette party.
The location majorly depends on your budget. You can plan a national or an international vacay with your girls but since this blog is about how to plan a budget bachelorette party, here are some pocket-friendly alternatives.
Decorations are important to set the mood right. And no bachelorette bash is complete without some fun and picturesque decorations. You can amp the room/terrace with personalised balloons, fairy lights, fun posters, shimmery curtains, wall hangings and a lot more. If you are wondering where to get all this from? Well, check out our blog on bachelorette decoration supplies to buy online. You will be surprised to know that there's a lot of stuff you can source within a mere budget of INR 1000.
Props like feather boas, bridal sashes, matching robes are sure to make the party (and photographs) even more fun.
Opt for savor variety of starters and keep the main course limited. Cuz lets agree, no one is interested in eating the main course after filling their bellies with sumptuous snacks & booze. Desserts are MUST. You can opt for cupcakes, pastries or bite-sized desserts, there's obviously a lot to choose from. Also, be inclusive of your vegetarian & non-vegetarian and alcoholic & non-alcoholic friends.
You can also put Swiggy & Zomato to the rescue and order nibbles from your favorite restaurants (or the ones offering 50% discount :P ).
Pro tip: Order food in parts from multiple phones while ordering online so to grab more discount.
Buy colorful and personalized shot glasses and cutlery to make the dining experience a little fancier.
What's a fun bachelorette party without some music and notorious games? Put your portable speakers to the rescue and play fun games like Bra Pong, Never Have I Ever, Double-meaning Trivia, How well do you know the bride-to-be, etc.
Now, this is something that the bride needs to take care of. It is the bride's personal choice if she wants to spoil her girls with some gifts. Right from creating personalized hampers to DIY-ing thoughtful gifts, there are many gifting options available for bridesmaids for every budget. Also, here are our favourite Instagram stores that offer the most adorable bridesmaids gifts.
Cake-cutting ceremony at a bachelorette is a MUST! But hey, not with your regular chocolate truffle. You must go as wild or hilarious as you can while finalizing the cake topper. Online retailers like Amazon sell penis-shaped cake toppers. But that's not all, you can also get the cakes customized to infuse fun elements.
Buying similar and customized nightsuits or robes can prove to be a little hefty on the pocket. So you can probably buy matching t-shirts and hand paint them. Or you can set a basic dress color code like 'Little Black Dress' or 'Sizzling Red' to infuse the coordination aspect.
Last but not the least, capture all the madness in great photographs. Carry a monopod or tripod to make sure no one is out of the frame. ;)
