What was once an excuse to hit every club in town, now has turned into an event all its own. Gone are the days of dinner followed by a visit to the local "ladies' night" before dancing the night away. Today's brides have a host of various party ideas available to them to make this last hoorah, truly one to remember.
The stagette has evolved to reflect all tastes and to represent more than just an all night party. From wilderness adventures to teeth-whitening parties, the options available have never been as plentiful as they are today.
What style of stagette?
Look no further than the bride-to-be herself to figure out what style event would be perfect for her and all the gals. Check it out:

Tips for the Budget conscious
Don't plan an event that involves overnight stays. Although, weekend spa getaways, or ski excursions are becoming a popular choice for bachelorette parties, the accommodations plus the cost of the activity itself adds up. Always check with everyone involved to make sure they are not being strapped with an "over the top" expense. Since the bride usually doesn't pay, remember to add the bride's portion to the tally.
Ask for special group rates when planning any activity to keep costs down.
Plan the activity for a weekday as opposed to the weekend. You may just get a better rate on a Tuesday than on a Saturday.
Do make sure to invite the fiance's female family members.
Do allow the bride's "likes" to guide the event's activities.
Do share the bill with all party guests, except the bride.
Don't plan the event too close to the wedding day unless very close out of town friends or family cannot attend until then. One to two weeks before the wedding is perfect timing.
Don't invite people to the stagette that aren't actually invited to the wedding. You don't have to invite all the female wedding guests to the bachelorette party but those that are invited should definitely be wedding guests as well.
Don't partake in an activity that is overly embarrassing or in any way cruel to the bride. In-laws and new family members may be attending the event; so, make the event comfortable for all.
