Being the maid of honor is quite an honor, a responsibility not to be taken lightly. You want to support the bride leading up to her big day and make her feel special by throwing her the perfect bachelorette party. But you’re struggling with how to get started. At Limousine Service of Portland, we’ve chauffeured a good number of bachelor and bachelorette parties, and we’ve picked up these few tips along the way. We hope you’ll find them helpful.
1. Keep the bride first.
Sometimes, it’s easy to think of the type of bachelorette party you might like or what you’ve seen on TV or in the movies. Instead of doing “what’s expected,” make a list of the bride’s interests. Factor in her personality: Does she like crowds? Will she want a big party or an intimate gathering? Is she a night owl or more of a morning person? The goal is to make the bride feel special and to celebrate her upcoming nuptials.
2. Always make reservations—and make them early.
Whether you’re going out for a fancy dinner or planning to book a limo, always call ahead, and make that reservation or book an appointment. Never assume you can show up and get the good service you desire (or service at all…). Plus, the earlier you can make them, the better.
3. Ask the bride for a guest list.
Inviting the bridesmaids is a given. However, the bride may have other special friends or family members that she’d like to include. You don’t want to make the mistake of leaving them out and causing wedding drama.
4. Don’t mess with transportation.
Whether you plan on doing a wine tour or a night out in Portland, hire a limo service or party bus for your transportation. At Limousine Service, you can know that our chauffeurs are specially trained and are ready to help you enjoy your night out. You can sit back, relax, and help the bride have fun. Leave all the driving and the navigating to us.
