First time Maid/Matron of Honor here..I was wondering what y’all did as far as planning the bridal and bachelorette parties. (for my wedding most of my bridal party was out of town so my aunts threw me a bridal shower). The bride said that her mom suggested getting a hotel downtown but she didn’t seem to into the idea, she also said that she didn’t want her mom to be in charge of the party planning. But she also hinted at having them in the same weekend, so I wasn’t sure who would all be invited, like maybe have the shower in the morning/afternoon then bachelorette party in the evening? I am just looking for some suggestions for what to do! We are still pretty fresh into all this but just looking at options!
The wedding is a year away but I am a planner and just wanted to see what was out there for ideas. I also don’t know any of the other BM’s, so I was thinking in about 6 months to email/pm them about themes, scheduling, budget…also the bride said she isn’t sure what theme to go with either, so maybe some ideas from BM’s would be helpful..?
I know everyone has different opinions but I thought that the aunts usually threw a bridal shower, but I have seem both done in the same weekend. Who else should I go to for help during this…I’d wait a few months but just not sure if I should ask who wants to help. I also don’t think 8 strangers planning would be a great idea…
Any ideas would be helpful here! Thank you!!
