I love throwing parties, so when a good friend reports that she has gotten engaged, I always offer to host one of her celebratory events, be it an engagement party, bridal shower, or bachelorette weekend. Secretly I’m hoping that she will say engagement party or bridal shower, because planning a bachelorette party is a daunting mission—even for a seasoned party pro like myself! It’s all too easy to end up stressed out and dreading the party at least once during the planning process, so if you’re just beginning to plan your first bachelorette for a close friend, take a deep breath. To avoid bachelorette burnout, follow this handy guide of things you should and should not do to host the most memorable of bachelorette parties.
