Not to freak you out or anything but it’s Mid-May.
and the clock is ticking…
Some of you Maid of Honors who will be in weddings this summer have maybe been putting off the shower and/or bachelorette party planning and I’m here to tell you- It’s Time.
Don’t believe those bachelorette/bachelor party images you see on TV where people are partying the night before the wedding. In reality, this seldom happens. Hello, rehearsal dinner? Remember, the early morning wake up call to get your hair and makeup done?
Most people have the bridal shower at least 1-3 months before the wedding and the bachelorette party 2 weeks to 2 months before the wedding.
Believe me, the month of the wedding is jam packed for the bride with last minute arrangements, stress, and events like the bridesmaids luncheon, rehearsal dinner and final bridal fittings. The last thing she wants to do is worry about going to a bachelorette party.
Make sure you ask the bride, but it may work out better to have it more than a few weeks before the wedding. Even just for safety’s sake. It may take time for her to recover from your Girls Night Out. What if the tan she gets from the tanning/spa day you’ve arranged goes awry? She’ll need a few weeks to get rid of the color (think Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars). Or heaven forbid, she gets injured rocking out in high heels at the bar. Give plenty of buffer space between the party and her wedding.
