Bachelorette Party Travel Tips
Bachelorette Party ChecklistIf you are one of the lucky ones to get out of town for you or your friend's last night out, get ready for some great times with the girls! Before you start planning and packing, we have some helpful tips to make your Last Night Out vacation an enjoyable and stress free experience:
 

1) Plan Early - The early bachelorette catches the great deals. Find out as soon as possible the "where's and when's" of the bachelorette party venue and call for volume discounted rates. Make this economy work for you since everyone is starving for business.
 

2) Look Online For Great Deals - Use the Internet by typing in the places of interest, visit online travel sites, call a travel agent you or the girls may know and also call the places yourself to see if they can beat online volume or discounted rates.
 

3) Use Your Diva Network - Does anyone going to the bachelorette party have connections to the places you are interested in, a AAA card or government discount? Work your magic and save lots of money for everyone.
 

4) The Bachelorette "Get In Free" Card - It can't hurt to ask if the bachelorette can have a free ride wherever you are going. Whether you are renting a limousine, going to a nice restaurant or hotel, every company is looking for your business and will make you a deal. Use this advice to your advantage.
 

5) Collect Money Early - Many times there is a need for deposits to be placed for the companies you may be using. It is common for the Maid of Honor (MOH) or other party planners to have the money collection burden which may last weeks after the bachelorette party. Don't be a debt collector, collect the money early and be up front with everyone attending. Collect emails and make sure everyone pays to have a confrontation free party.
 

6) Bride To Be Bliss - An important factor in planning our trip is to make sure you have the approval and appreciate of the bride. Understand what type of trip excites the bride since it is all about her. You don't want to plan a beach getaway with the girls if the bride doesn't like being in the sun or sand. It is okay to ask for her advice on where she would like to go and what type or theme of a party would be her favorite.
 

7) Proactive Traveling - Due to all the security when traveling, make sure to give yourself enough time on the day of travel. Whether you are taking cars, planes, or boats, make sure to leave a cushion of time to your destination so you are not stressing out.
 

8) Make a List - A fantastic idea is to create and send out a list of items the girls should remember to bring when traveling. You will be the hero when presenting the list to the girls who may have forgotten key items. See below for the bachelorette party travel list which is also in a printable format.
 

The most important key to success is to have a fun and memorable time with the bride and her girls. Plan early, be economically savvy, pay attention to the bride and you will have a fantastic and stress free bachelorette party extravaganza.
