I was both maid of honor and wedding coordinator when my sister got married last year. Because so many of the guests were coming from out of town, we decided to combine the bachelorette party and bridal shower into one fun-filled weekend to save on travel time and ensure that everyone could attend.
But at some point, as I trudged through the pre-wedding and wedding day event plans—not to mention my usual full time job!—I started to wish someone else could take on more of the planning workload. I really wanted some time to actually enjoy these gatherings with my sister. I’m sure there are many plan-weary bridesmaids and maids of honor out there who can relate, so I thought I’d make a suggestion: enlist a bachelorette party planning company.
What a great concept! This way you can enjoy the special day with the bride and let someone else stress over the details.
