From Bachelorette Parties to Baby Showers

There comes a time in almost every woman’s life when she’s asked to help plan a party for another female friend. These events are event held to commemorate a big event in someone’s life, whether it’s an engagement, wedding, or a new baby. Each occasion demands different things, although there are also plenty of similarities as well.

Here comes the bride

The news of a friend’s engagement is often met with cheers and requests to see the ring (if there is a ring). Then talk to shifts to wedding dates, and usually it doesn’t take too much time after that for people to start discussing the bachelorette party. The party depends on a lot on the bride’s personality. Friends of the bride shouldn’t hold the type of party they want; they should instead think about the bride-to-be’s wishes and desires. If the bride says she doesn’t want a male stripper, then by all means, don’t get her a male stripper. Some brides will want a night of hedonism; others will be perfectly content drinking red wine and watching old romantic comedies.

One thing most brides can agree on? The bar is played out as a bachelorette party venue. That’s why a night at a casino in Oregon might be just what the doctor ordered. If you’re feeling brave, take a few chances at the card table. It’ll probably be a lot more fun than simply drinking yourself under the table. You may lose a little money, but as long as you budget properly and don’t go over a set amount, you’ll be fun. Treat it as entertainment and don’t feel like you absolutely must walk away with a jackpot. That all-or-nothing thinking probably isn’t going to work out well. So have some fun, then head to one of the casino’s premier restaurants for some good food and a couple of drinks with friends before one of you becomes a Mrs.

Hey, baby

Speaking of weddings, the old playground song “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the marriage” is a bit outdated at this point. It’s certainly nice if love comes first, but more and more couples don’t feel the need to get married before starting a family. Regardless of the couple’s legal status, a baby is still considered something worth celebrating via a baby shower. Ideally, you’ll be able to plan the shower with some input from the expectant mom. It’s a good idea for her to set up an Amazon baby registry so well-wishers from all over can buy something for the little one. If you know your friend is having a baby girl and plans to decorate the nursery in shades of yellow and purple, then it’s a good idea to make purple and blue the dominant colors at the baby shower as well. Have the parents picked out a baby name yet? If so, get a cake from your local bakery wishing the kiddo a happy birthday by name. A few personal touches will go a long way towards making the mom-to-be feel like she’s surrounded by love and support as she prepares for a monumental moment in her life.
