Bachelor parties are a time-honored tradition where the groom can have one last hurrah with his buddies before tying the knot.  But doesn’t the bride also deserve a Girls Night Out? We think so and so we have composed a bachelorette party planning guide to remind you that girls just wanna have fun!

While a bridal shower is meant to “shower” the bride with gifts for her new home and words of wisdom and encouragement for her new life as a married woman, a bachelorette party is to celebrate the end of her life as a single woman. The bridal shower is more a formal affair and can include family, friends, co-workers, college pals, girls from the gym, etc. The bachelorette party is a more intimate affair for her closest circle of friends; siblings, college roommate, childhood best friends, cousins and so-forth. It is perfectly acceptable to have both a bridal shower and a bachelorette party as they may not be planned and hosted by the same person, or group of people. It’s all about the bride so show her how much you love her and celebrate in style.

Traditionally this is planned by the bridal party, but honestly, anyone who knows the bride can take initiative: co-workers, siblings, college friends, whomever. If you feel inspired to treat her to a night of fun and adventure, take control and get the party started!
