Preparing for wedding celebrations can be tough. You have to make a lot of arrangements and talk to vendors, suppliers and party organizers for a couple of weeks just to ensure that the celebration will go smoothly.
Too much stress from all the wedding preparations you need to handle can cause dull skin, puffy eyes and other sorts of problems.

How many women do you want to party with? Do you want to keep it exclusive to your girlfriends or do you want to include your aunts, mother, and granny?
It’s crucial to have the initial headcount as early as possible if you want to move forward in setting the dates, budget and even the party destination. Knowing who you want to include to the party will also help you decide what activities you can do.
Once you have your guest list ready, make sure you notify them about the initial plan. Talk about potential schedule options and the activities they might want to add to your itinerary.
Set the date and save it
Surely you don’t want to leave anyone behind when you choose the final schedule for the party.
Perhaps one of the girls can’t come on a weekday because of their office work. Maybe your best friend won’t make it to the event if you host it next week because of prior commitments.
Talk to everyone on the list and check their available schedule.
Also, try to use the power persuasion. It’s most likely that some of your girls will be willing to make a few compromises so they can make it to your bachelorette celebration.
After you decide on a date, update everyone included in the guest list. You can send them a save-the-date card for your hen party.
Finalize the party theme and activities
Earlier, we emphasized the importance of knowing who you should include to your guest list for selecting the type of activities you can do.
For example, paintballing won’t be a good option if you decide to invite your grandma to the festivities. The last thing you want is dealing with injuries and unhappy guests.

Don’t forget to finalize the venue of the party
It’s quite easier to pick a venue once you already have the list of things you want to do. When you’re choosing a venue, consider the logistics. If it’s too far for some of the guests, then you should pick a place that’s close to your hometown or city.
After all, it’s not really about the place you go to for the party. It’s all about the people you celebrate with.
