if you are the chief organizer for your best friend’s bachelorette party, but you are tasked with keeping it within budget, then you may have a huge mission ahead of you. Here are some bachelorette party money-saving tips to make it memorable and under budget, courtesy of Naif Productions.
Plan way in advance
Even though the wedding may feel like it is light years away, it is best to start preparing in advance so you can take advantage of special deals and discounts for your friend’s special day. The Bride Squad app should be pretty helpful in getting all your ducks in a row ahead of time.
Choosing a budget-friendly destination
If it is the bride’s dream to have her bachelorette party on the beach, then you don’t necessarily have to stress about how to raise enough money to have a party in luxurious (but expensive) Hawaii. There are plenty of affordable bachelorette party destinations that are within arm’s reach if you know where to look. Some famous beaches that are fantastically affordable destinations for bachelorette parties include places like La Jolla, Aruba, and Belize.
However, if the bride is looking to celebrate indoors, there are options for that, too. Bach is a great app to help point out affordable cities and accommodations for bachelorette parties. In addition to using apps like this, you can search for cities with a Walk Score of 70 and above to save on transport costs, as you and your bachelorette party can easily walk to your destination of choice. You can also search for cities with a Transit Score of 50 and above, which means cheaper public transport costs if you opt for this rather than using your vehicle.
Looking for an indoor venue?
Planning for a bachelorette party at a hotel venue or an exclusive resort is sure to eat up your budget, so opt for a restaurant’s meeting room instead. More upscale than your backyard or a public park, a restaurant meeting room is an affordable alternative that could be just as luxurious, depending on how you set it up. Furthermore, you may even have access to special restaurant deals or coupons, which could end up saving you quite a bit on the food bill.
Take advantage of all in one deal
Combo deals are good to look into if you want to save money on the bachelorette party overall. Search for combo decor packages so you don’t have to waste time searching for individual items. Also, you could take advantage of online shopping using sites like Amazon to get your all-in-one deals so that you don’t have to shop around in person.
Get everyone to chip in for the event
While you don’t have to make this a mandatory task, it could be helpful to create a savings account with the bridal party for those who are able and willing to contribute to making the occasion a success. This is an excellent way to help reduce the cost of the event.
As you can see, you don’t necessarily have to go all out financially to have a bachelorette party that your friends and the bride will be raving about for years to come. All you need to do is plan wisely and be money-savvy to ensure you get the best deals at the best prices.
