Creating a guest list

This is the best place to start, as it will give you an indication of numbers. The size of the party may affect the budget and the location, so it’s best to get a rough idea of who is invited first. If you’re planning a party for your best friend or your sister, ask them to provide a list, rather than trying to guess, as you may miss people out or invite people the bride didn’t intend to include. Once you’ve got a list of names and numbers, you can set up a social media group or event or send out some save the date cards. It’s wise to ask people to give you a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ by a certain date so that you can start planning.


Choosing a location

These days, anything goes when it comes to locations and destinations. Parties range from a low-key meal at a local restaurant to all-out luxury vacations and foreign city breaks. It’s a good idea to gauge the kind of event the bride is expecting and to liaise with the guests before you make a decision. Ask people how much they’d be willing to spend, and float a few ideas around and see what kind of reaction you get. It’s a good idea to do some sums and give the bridal tribe an estimate. If you’re going to London for a few days, for example, look at flights and the cost of splitting accommodation between the group. Once you know how many people are interested and you’ve got a budget in mind, consider the kinds of activities your friend or relative would like to do. If they love shopping, drinking cocktails and partying in clubs and bars, a city break would be ideal. If they’d rather spend their time at the beach, riding horses or kayaking in the sea, a beach vacation would be a better bet.

Designing your itinerary

You’ve got a guest list and a location. Now, it’s time to plan the itinerary. Include activities and excursions that you know the bride would love, and then make the weekend extra special by planning a few little surprises and adding a personal touch. Greet the bride at the airport in a party bus like those available at, design some custom party bags for the group and reserve a VIP area in restaurants or clubs. Ask everyone to send in a song that reminds them of the bride and create a bespoke playlist and make a scrapbook full of photos from years gone by. Leave a few pages in the back, so that the bride to be can add some snaps from the bachelorette party.
