These days everyone is pinching pennies and watching their budgets carefully so when it comes to doing your duty as a Maid of Honor, we’ve got a great idea for how to throw a fun memorable party for your Bride-to-be without breaking the bank.
Bringing back the Slumber Party!
Remember as a little girl when the most fun thing EVER was 10 of your friends a ton of junk food and staying up all night gossiping and playing silly games? Well slumber parties aren’t just for 10 year olds anymore!
Here are a few suggestions for making your Slumber Party great!
If the Maid of Honor (or one of the other bridesmaids) doesn’t have a house or apartment large enough or local enough to host the party…look into getting hotel room for the night! Why not have your party, and not the clean up!
Start the night off with a fun dinner, find out what the Bride’s favorite meal is and order in or make the meal as a group(if you are the culinary type). Mix up a pitcher of Margaritas or a batch of yummy Champagne Punch, watch a couple of sappy wedding movies, decorate cupcakes and pamper yourselves with some at home spa treatments.
Another fun idea is to have a Romance Specialist at your party. Nothing says Bachelorette Party like Adult Toys and party games. If you are looking for a local consultant check out Amanda’s Party Gals.
