I am super excited! My bestie is getting married in 3 months and I want to throw her a party. I wish I could have all three parties (bridal shower, engagement party, bachelorette party and B&G party) but I can’t afford it mehn 🙁 My money no long reach that one now.
So here’s my question: Which do you suggest I throw? I thought about bridal shower but my bestie loves to party and I know she’ll appreciate the gifts she’ll be getting if I go with a bridal shower.
What do you suggest? What makes one party better than the other?
Throw all parties ke? Except you are loaded, I won’t advice it. Congrats again on your bestie’s upcoming ceremony!!
I’ll say go with bridal shower. It’s a female themed party and you and friends buy gifts off the couple’s registry or better still, you get her something nice you think she ought to have for her honeymoon! You don’t have to do this alone. It’s typical planned by the bridal party, and I have seen mothers of the bride even plan this as well. You can divide the cost of this event with other ladies on the train and either bring finger foods or something light. Don’t forget the games.
A Bachelorette party in terms of cost and responsible individuals is the same as the shower; and no, mother of the bride is not to be factored in. It’s a time to celebrate the bride and celebrate her last night as a single woman. It’s an all ladies event and could be a get away trip! Typical activities include drinking, partying, couple of dares etc. It’s really up to you guys but this can break a college student’s bank.
I am yet to hear about an engagement party or attend one. They are not as normal and typically serves the same purpose as a Nigerian introduction ceremony. it’s just a way for families to get to know each other. Plus if the date has been chosen, it’s announced here too. This is something thrown by the family not MOH.
If you want it to be about your bestie only, i advice against this except she has no preference. A B&G party is pretty much like a bridal shower except males and females are invited. However, if she doesn’t mind, this could actually be super fun. Make sure you give the guys something fun and crazy to do, LOL….Whatever you do, i advice against playing games like “How well do you know your partner” or anything of the likes. It can break up a relationship (you’ll expect people to know each other right).
Have fun!! 😀
