With wedding season comes a slew of other traditions, perhaps the most fun of which is getting to partake in a bachelorette party. These legendary weekend trips entail pulling out all the stops for the bride-to-be, so naturally they’re chocked full of champagne, hilarious games, and maybe a touch of inappropriateness.
Whatever your destination may be (Vegas? Vancouver? Cabo?), we’ve laid out a few ground rules to get you in the party spirit. Scroll on!
1) Know Your Bride: Your dream bachelorette party may be different than another bride’s. Bare in mind this weekend is all about her. The maid of honor will likely plan the itinerary, and while it’s okay to give suggestions, be prepared to stick to the schedule with a smile on your face.
2) Research the location: What you’ll wear in Atlantic City is different than Montreal, so pack appropriately!
3) Don’t Push Your Limits: Have fun, but at the end of the day it’s all about the bride. No one wants to hold your hair back, so brace yourself!
4) Don’t Be Afraid To Say “No”: If you don’t think it’s your cup of tea, or can’t afford to splurge financially, there’s no shame in backing out. Your bride should understand because more likely, she’d rather have you at the wedding.
