When a woman is about to walk down the aisle, a close friend is often tasked to organise a bridal shower activity in Singapore that will celebrate the bride-to-be’s last moments of being single.
To ensure that your best pal’s hen party will be as fun and as memorable as it can be, you need to make sure that you don’t commit the seven common mistakes below.
1. Not inviting the entire bridal party.
The bride has carefully handpicked the bridesmaids. They are women who are not only close to her but also play an essential role in her wedding and her life. This is why you need to make sure that you invite the entire bridal party and ask each of them to help organise the event.
2. Not planning the bridal shower ahead of time.
If you schedule the event too close to the big day, there’s a big chance that the bride and groom will already have a line-up of activities that they need to attend to. If you’re organising a friend’s hen party, make sure that you pick a date that’s a few weeks to a month away from the wedding. This is especially true if some bridesmaids don’t live within the same city.
3. Not sending the invitations on time.
A rule of thumb when it comes to sending out invites to everyone on your guest list would be four to six weeks before the bridal shower. This should give all of your guests enough time to prepare for the party. Sending them invitations ahead of time will also help them decide whether they want to attend the hen night or not.
4. Not asking for help from others.
Whether you’re planning to make your fragrance party, floral arrangement workshop, baking class, or spa day, holding such an event can be much work. This is why you need to seek help from other bridal party members, so you don’t get stressed out about it. The bride will indeed have friends or relatives who would want to pitch in to ensure the success of your bachelorette party.
5. Not sticking to the budget.
If you have a budget, as you should, it’s in your best interest to stick to it. This is especially important because the funding for most bridal showers is shared with the bride’s closest family and friends. It only makes perfect sense to ensure that you avoid going over budget – even if you need to do away with a few things.
6. Not including the registry information on the invitation.
Guests will appreciate it that you give them a head’s up of what the bride and groom would like to receive for their wedding. This is because people can be sure that the couple will appreciate the gifts they will be spending on.
7. Not sending “Thank You” notes.
Print out or purchase the “Thank You” notes days before the event so you can hand out each one of them to the attendees at the end of your get-together. These thank-you notes are the perfect finishing touch to make the bride and every guest feel extra special.
