You will need
- A schedule
- A guest list
- A budget
- A location
- Embarrassing necklace
- or veil (optional)
Step 1 Determine party type Determine the type of party you’re going to throw. Talk to the bride and get a sense of whether she wants a wild party or a more traditional get-together.
Step 2 Schedule the party Schedule the date of the party. The weekend before the wedding is usually a good choice.
Step 3 Invite guests Put together a guest list of the bride’s female friends and family, and invite them early enough so that they can attend.
Step 4 Plan a budget Plan a budget by finding out how much guests are willing to spend.
Overestimate the cost per person, so there is plenty of money to cover any unforeseen expenses.
Step 5 Pick a location Pick a location to have the party. If you’re going to a bar, make sure there are designated drivers. If you’re staying at home, assign bridesmaids to decorate.
Step 6 Plan events Plan plenty of entertainment. Go to a musical or show, stay home and play party games, or take a pole dancing or exotic dance class.
Make the bride wear an embarrassing novelty necklace, shirt, or veil.
Step 7 Have fun Have fun and be sure to take plenty of pictures.
