Bachelorette parties are super fun, but it seems that they get more elaborate every year. What we really need to remember is that they are just a time to celebrate the bride and her last days of singledom. And who better to take some advice from that bride-to-be and lifestyle guru Lauren Conrad. She recently shared some of her best bachelorette party tips on her web site and they are pretty smart. Here are a few of them:
1. Make it about the bride
Conrad wrote, "The absolute, most important rule of etiquette when it comes to bachelorette parties is this: You are celebrating a very special bride-to-be, and this weekend is all about her. I’ve been to a handful of bachelorettes where some of the bridesmaids and guests lose sight of this, and make the festivities about them and what they want to do."
2. Be respectful when it comes to social media
Yes, we all love our Instagram and Facebook but not every single event of the night needs to be documented and shared with the whole world. You want the bride to cut loose and she may not do that if she is worried about her mom and husband to be seeing every photo from the night. Conrad wrote, "Bachelorettes can get a bit wild (depending on who you’re with and who you’re celebrating), and some of the photos you take should never see the light of day. Just make sure to get approval from the rest of the bach’ party before you post/tweet/etc."
3. Don't make it all about the alcohol
Yes, drinking is often a big part of bachelorettes but it really should not be the sole focus. You don't want to get so hammered that you literally cannot function the next and remember any of the party! Conrad wrote, "It’s definitely fun to have a few cocktails with your best girlfriends and celebrate one of the most exciting times in a friend’s life, but trust me, you’ll want to be able to soak up every minute with your friends instead of being stuck in bed with a hangover headache."
