Pampering Weekend, Bridal Shower & Bachelorette NightMonday, September 14, 2015
So I have record down some of the moments during that whole weekend from facial to bridal shower to bachelorette night…. Checkout my below videoss…
That weekend was reallllllyyyyy fun… It’s been so long I never been pampered like this… All thanks to all the girls who take their precious time out to celebrate my next level of life…
By the way I would like to share with you some of the info I found on Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night that I thought if you are bride to be or honoured bride’s maid or a guest of these party, you might want to know. Before this I have no idea how Bridal shower should be, totally no idea at all and then I went on Google and ask question on forum too. In Malaysia Bridal Shower is not so common and I have never attended one before haha.. Honestly I think there is no rules how it should be, so below it’s just a guidelines for those in Malaysia (which is where I live) and it is not necessary to be the same. I am the type of person that doesn’t really follow tradition or trend, I set them but off course I will also ensure people around me are comfortable with them. So I will put the FAQ on this Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night so you can digest them easier rather than a big chunks of wordsss…
1. What is the difference between Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night?
Both Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night are the same but it is carried out in a different way. Bridal Shower are usually more relaxing where usually people for for a vacation, spa or a party at restaurant with foods and some games sometime. Bridal Shower are about preparing the bride-to-be for her new life as a wife. Usually, friends and family join together to equip her with the right tools—from sexy lingerie to a toaster oven. Bachelorette Night marks the bride-to-be’s last night as a single woman. Usually the night will be filled with naughty humour, sexy antics and lots of alcohol.
As for me I prefer everything to be rather simple and casual and do not want all my brides maid spending big bucks on it so i share with my maid of honour that i prefer it to be casual. For my bridal shower, we gather in a restaurant and we talk about a lot of things from my wedding, to some of our study time and our blog event and alot more… It’s just very relaxing and easy ones no need make a lot of preparation as everyone is pretty busy. For my Bachelorette night, all of us went to the most happening club and dance and drink through the night!!!
Like I said, both Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night is not very common in Malaysia and many people does not know how it should go, so it is not necessary to follow those you always read from the web or those you seen in movie. Sometime, it is good to be realistic on organizing party and make sure it fit the culture and norms in that country. So if you are maid of honour remember to discuss with the bride and other bridesmaid see what is their thought on how the party to be. You totally can go for a casual ones or go all out with those super grand ones and even hire a party planner to plan the party. You can also includes some kinky games or not… It’s all up to you the bride to be (BTB) & Maid of Honour (MOH).
2. Who should host the Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night
Usually it will be host by MOH and if your assigned MOH did not organize one then most probably you will not have one. That’s what I’ve been told from a forum. Some of my friend told me that the BTB can express to the MOH that she wanted a Bridal Shower. So I am not sure if this is the culture here in Malaysia but again I think it doesn’t really matter because usually MOH is the BTB bestie she would be happy to throw her a Bridal Shower. and totally there is nothing wrong to share with your BFF your wish right? It’s better to voice out then keeping it in your heart and then your wish will never really came true… It’s the similar theory, if you see a guy you like go ahead and make your first move unless if you want your happiness to fly away...
3. Who pay for the bill?
Traditionally, the MOH and the bridesmaid and family member will share the bill for both Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Party. Sometime the organizer who is the the MOH will fork out money to pay most of the bill portion. Again in Malaysia is totally a different culture I feel. people don’t practise buying dinner for other in general. I don’t know but that’s what I feel. So for me I would feel happy that my best friend be with me to celebrate my soon to come wedding la… So I told my MOH that I will pay for the bill.. :) For Bachelorette Night we all pay for our own bill :). So, again BTB please discuss with your MOH how should the bill to be divide. You do not want the MOH to be stressed out on paying the whole bill right? Or maybe you can opt for a lower cost party venue or maybe can offer to pay part of the bill or maybe discuss with family member to help out on the bill?
4. Should Guest bring Gift to Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night
I would say gift is optional but it will be great if you are the guest to bring a gift. Like I mentioned earlier, Bridal Shower meant to shower the BTB with gift so she get herself ready to be a wife. If you are running out of cash, a nice card with thoughtful message is a great gift ideas too. I believe the BTB would be happy to read the message on the card.
5.When shall a Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night be on?
Typically it’s about 2-3 months ahead of the actual wedding date. You can do it one month before but it would be very rush and you might be already very busy with all your wedding planning. If you know you have very tight schedule especially nowadays women are getting busier with more task at work and at the same time need to handle housework you can also set it much earlier so you will have enough time to prepare others things for wedding.
So yeah above are some the guidelines… Below are some of the Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Night ideas.
Bridal Shower Ideas: Spa Day, Perfume Making Day, High Tea, Jewelleries Making Class, Vacation,Wine Tour
Bachelorette Night Ideas: A night at the most happening club in town, Spend a night at club out of your country and stay for 2nights there, Go for a Wine Tasting, Go to Chill at Pub and drink whole night.
So I shall end my post with some of the pictures I capture that day!!!
