Getting ready for a fantastic night out takes preparation. From a bachelorette extravaganza to birthday parties, making the best of your event starts with the right essentials.
Planning and making reservations are in your future, so let’s go over some tips that will assist you in getting ready for that special night.
What are you waiting for?
What’s the goal of your night out? If your friend is wanting to have a bachelorette bash and you’re going to be the maid of honor at her wedding, it’s time to step up to the plate. Creating a memorable night for the bride-to-be should be at the top of your list. What comes next are specifics.
Where is the shindig going down?
If you want go out to a nice dinner, then take a joy ride, and end up at the hottest dancing spot in town, you’ll have to make some reservations or you may find yourself doing more waiting than partying.
How Many People Are Coming?
You’ll need to have a list of everyone wanting to join, or whoever is invited. If your friend has 8 bridesmaids, but you found a restaurant reservation for 4, then rethinking your plan is in order.
Ensuring that the night goes smoothly is down to planning, so make sure there’s room for everyone.
Where will you end up?
If the night concludes with everyone (or mostly everyone) returning home, you’ll need to ensure that people have a safe way to get there. If the plan is to stay at a hotel, then look into options close to where your celebration is taking place. You won’t want to figure this part out after a night of partying, so it’s best make certain decisions now.
Gear includes any necessities that you might need for the night ahead. When getting everything ready for a bachelorette party, for example, you’ll want to bring some fun accessories along. This may include sparklers, confetti, silly signs or masks, and something special for the future bride.
Alcohol is probably one of the main essentials to this event. When you and your friends get together, are you going to meet somewhere that sells alcohol or a place that has a BYOB preference? Having a champagne toast and maybe even a few cigars is a nice touch when celebrating an important event, so have some ready wherever the event takes place.
If you are a alcohol and tobacco free group, silly party favors can be a big hit along with a sash, hat, or other fashion accessories meant to keep the person being celebrated at the center of everyone's attention.
Now that you’ve made a few reservations, you have a list of all the invites and your party gear is in order, it’s time to figure out the riding situation.
Who’s driving? If drinking is in order, then no one in the entourage should intend on participating in this task. You could plan on a taxi, but if your party is large, then that might not work as well. Also, reserving a taxi may prove to be difficult, depending on the night, and waiting around when you should be partying or sleeping isn’t going to make for a memorable moment.
Have you considered a limo? It’s an extravagant night, so you should make it as amazing as possible. Many limos can fit 8 to 15 people, come with an experienced and well-mannered driver, in-stock beverage station and of course privacy glass. You can reserve them for a whole night as well, so no waiting for taxis or a ride that might never show.
Whatever the festivity, creating a perfect night out starts with planning. Don’t miss out on something because you weren’t prepared. Follow your agenda and have a marvelous night!
