It's not everyday that your best friend gets married, and as the dedicated and loving maid of honor that you are, you owe it to her to throw the best, most unforgettable bachelorette party of all time, right? Very exciting. But planning a stellar evening out with the girls can be mighty tricky on a regular night, without the added pressure of it being the last unmarried night of your best friend's life.

Between figuring out everybody's schedules, budgets, dietary restrictions, pet peeves, political views, coordinating lipstick shades, etc., what once seemed like a fun and exciting project can quickly become overwhelming. That's why we reached out to Montreal Nitelife, a local bachelorette party planner, for a few tips on what to consider when planning a successful bachelorette party of epic proportions.

1. Choosing A Theme

Picking a theme for the evening will give your girls something to rally around and draw inspiration from, plus it can make for some pretty cute outfits. It's always best to go with something that isn’t overdone or tacky, unless of course you're going for a "the tackier the better" kind of night, then by all means, tack away. Whether you have a nautical night, decide to dawn some cowboy boots, or try to bring back a little old Hollywood glamour, having a theme will help the night come together.

2. Keeping The Group In Mind

When you're planning the night, it's important to keep in mind the group of people that you're planning for. You want everyone to get along and have a great time, so if you're stuck for what to do, it can be a good idea to get a little input from the girls that will be attending. But be careful to only ask for opinions when you really need them. Having too many cooks in the kitchen can end disastrously with all of those different ideas flying around. Just remember that you’re the maid of honour for a reason, so you get to have final say.

3. Not Blowing Your Budget

Getting together with a group of girls means that there's probably going to be a wide range of what people can afford to spend. Make sure that you're not going to send someone into some deep credit card debt and respect everyone’s budget. And if there's something that you're all pitching in for, it's a good idea to collect everyone's money beforehand, that way you'll be good to go, and not worrying about who's paid and who hasn't by the time the bachelorette party rolls around.

4. Picking The Activities/Entertainment

Being thoroughly entertained from start to finish is the goal of every great bachelorette party, so make sure you have some sort of activity, show, or event planned. Don't just go to a bar and hope for the best - there's so much more out there than that. Whether it's pampering yourselves at a spa, signing up for a pole dancing class, or checking out the show at a strip club, having some planned entertainment will help to kick your party up to the next level.


5. Have A Few Surprises Up Your Sleeve

We all know that most brides want to be in control of every aspect of their wedding - they don't call them bridezillas for nothing - but having a surprise or two up your sleeve is definitely the way to go. They don't need to know every detail of the night, and they especially don't need to know whether or not you hired that stripper. Keeping your friend guessing throughout the night, and then surprising her with one awesome thing after another, will make this one of the most memorable nights of her life.

6. Get Creative

Bachelorette parties are the perfect time to test out your creativity skills by attempting to make all of those Pinterest-y DIY posts that you've seen on everything from cookies to party favours. Not only will the bride appreciate how much effort you put in, but it's also a great way to save some money, since you won't have to spend a fortune at Party Mania or the sex shops. Plus, it'll give the other bridesmaids a chance to help out.

7. Think Of The Bride

Most importantly, when you're planning your best friend's bachelorette party, you have to plan it first and foremost around what she likes and what she'll enjoy. This isn't your wedding, so keep all of those crazy ideas of what you'd like at your own bachelorette party to yourself. Just because you'd like to have the most wild and raunchy night of your life doesn't mean that she will. Or maybe you'd choose to have a relaxing night with your girls, and she's looking to beat the world record for most shots taken in an hour. Moral of the story, make sure you get a feel for what she's hoping for so that no one is left disappointed.
