Your bestie is finally tying the knot and as her maid of honor, and you’ve been tasked with throwing her an epic bachelorette party. While choosing the location was a breeze (Vegas, baby!), you’ll want to keep these other tips in mind when it’s time to send out that all-important invitation to the bridal party.
Making Las Vegas Bachelorette Party Invitation
Tip #1: Lock down the details
Planning at least 3 months ahead is a must! The bride needs to come up with 3 weekends that the party can happen that works with her schedule. Remember that this trip has to happen on a different weekend than the engagement party, dress fittings, or other bridal showers. Pick the one weekend where most, if not all, the bridesmaids can attend!
Tip #2: Decide on your invitation type
Online invitations are more popular than ever. The benefit of an online invitation is that it allows your guests to electronically respond, comment with suggestions or ask questions all in one place. While popular apps like evite.com and punchbowl.com are easy to use, the have you may have better luck finding a wider variety of Vegas-themed invitations at sites such as paperlesspost.com or invitations4u.com.
If you’d rather go the traditional route, there are plenty of sites to choose from where you can customize your paper invitations and get a sleek and professional-looking product in just a few days. Many sites, such as Zazzle, have a “Vegas Bachelorette Party” template already, so all you need to do is plug in the bride’s name and dates! Pinterest is always a valuable resource for finding invitation ideas as well.
Tip #3: Set up a trip Facebook page
Let the rest of the bridal party join in the fun of planning for the bachelorette party by setting up a Facebook page dedicated to the vacation and strike up some conversations. For example: “Which hunks should we go see for a striptease? I hear the Chippendales are great, but the Thunder from Down Under has half-price tickets that weekend.” Allowing the party guests to put in their two cents will help build excitement for the trip as well as help the bridesmaids (who may be strangers) to bond before the trip.
Tip #4: Include travel details and itinerary
Make sure that no matter whether you make your invitation electronically or the old-fashioned way, that you include a link to your hotel accommodations and any group sales information for booking. If you are super-organized and like to plan things out instead of just “going with the flow” of the trip, you may also want to provide the bridal party with a rough itinerary so that they know where to be and when. Once the alcohol starts flowing and the music begins thumping, you’ll be glad you did!
