Elevate the excitement of your bachelorette party with these essential bachelorette party must-haves.

When your best friend is getting married, it’s up to you to plan the ultimate bachelorette party. And while it’s fun to put together a bash they’ll remember forever, it can be tough if you don’t have the right tools — like a bachelorette party checklist.

Who's in charge of the bachelorette planning checklist?

While the bride usually needs to approve plans for the party, the maid of honor will probably make a checklist for the bride and other group members. Together with the bridesmaids, the maid of honor will make a dazzling plan (and ideally some surprises for the bride!) and use a bachelorette party planning checklist to follow through so everything is in order for the big night (or weekend!) out. If you’re the maid of honor, you have a lot of planning ahead of you. Fortunately, some simple checklists can go a long way to decrease the stress and increase the fun. You’ll definitely want to create a shared to-do list to keep everyone on the same page.

Save the bachelorette party checklist PDF and share.

Every bachelorette party checklist should include as many details as possible. Think through the party itself and all the steps that lead up to it. Write down everything you can think of. You can use an app to convert an Excel sheet into PDF, or even a piece of paper. And if you want to share it with other bridesmaids, save the document as a bachelorette party checklist PDF. No matter what you use, just make sure you can access the list easily.

After putting together a paper or online checklist for the bachelorette party, review it with the bride. You can then send it out via email and let everyone edit the document online. Sharing the checklist as a PDF will allow everyone to access it from any device, including their phones. So if they need to make any last-minute preparations, they can look at their to-do list even on the go.
