Bachelorette parties are always a blast, but planning them can be a bit overwhelming. These celebrations are all about women celebrating other women and are the perfect excuse to spend quality time with your favorite people. If you're considering a weekend getaway with your besties, then planning a destination bachelorette party might be the way to go. But where do you even start? Don't worry - we've got you covered with some great tips to make the process seamless and ensure your bachelorette fête runs smoothly.

Appoint a Task Force

To avoid decision overload, it's best to appoint 1-2 people in your group as the leaders of the planning process. Your "go-to gals" will make the process seamless for everyone. Typically, the maid or matron of honor takes on this responsibility. They will work closely with the bride to bring her vision to life.

Settle on a Date

Choosing a date can be challenging with a large group. Create a shared file on Google Drive or use iPhone notes to involve everyone in the decision-making process. The bride should select three different months, days of the week, and the number of nights she wants to celebrate. Each group member can then contribute their preferred dates. Once you have everyone's input, lock in the dates and avoid making changes.

Talk Financials

After settling on a date, it's essential to have an honest conversation about the budget. This will determine where you can go, where you'll stay, and what activities you can do. While discussing budgets can be awkward, it's crucial to ensure everyone is comfortable. Lodging is often the most significant expense, so consider asking each person about their preferred spending range per night. Alternatively, have one-on-one conversations to understand individual budgets. Finding a sweet spot that works for everyone will ensure a stress-free trip.

Timing is Everything

If possible, book your accommodations (hotel or Airbnb) four to six months in advance, especially if it's a popular destination during peak travel times. This way, you can secure the perfect lodging without having to settle for less. Additionally, ensure there is a communal space for everyone to gather, so no one feels left out based on sleeping arrangements.

Set the Framework

Once you have the dates and budget set, it's time to firm up the rest of the celebration. Make group reservations for restaurants, pool parties, spa treatments, yoga classes, and any other activities you have in mind, at least three months in advance. This is also a good time to confirm that everyone, especially the bride, has booked their travel to and from the destination.

Don't Over Schedule

Remember, you don't need to have something planned for every single day of your getaway. The purpose of this trip is to spend quality time together. Make sure to incorporate downtime by the pool, casual chats over drinks and snacks, and allowing extra time for getting ready. Stay flexible with your schedule and plan for transportation if your accommodation is not easily accessible.

Use Apps like Splitwise or Venmo

To simplify splitting costs, consider using apps like Splitwise or Venmo. These apps allow you to track expenses throughout the weekend and calculate how much each person owes at the end of the trip. No need to worry about splitting the bill multiple ways or causing any drama.

The Fun Stuff

Don't forget to bring along decorations to add some flair to your celebration. Choose a theme, select coordinating swag, and stick with it. Consider DIY custom color handmade balloon garlands for that extra touch. You may also want to go in on a group gift or select a theme for bachelorette gifts. And of course, don't forget the sashes, veils, pool floaties, and "special" straws. These items may seem cheesy, but they guarantee extra giggles and good times throughout the weekend.
