Everything You Need to Have a Great Time with Your Bridal Party

Your bachelorette party should be a time to goof off and recenter with your best girlfriends as you take a break from planning your wedding. Getting married can be an expensive, stressful ordeal, and you deserve some quality rest and relaxation. Taking a trip will help you take your mind off the wedding for a few days as you catch up with your friends. You can get away from your fiancé as you both take time to reflect on this major life decision. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Learn how to organize a bachelorette party to make the most of this special time.

Find a Central Location

There’s no point in hosting a girl’s trip if your best gal pals can’t make it to the destination. It’s getting more expensive to travel, so consider choosing a central location that is easy to get to. You can carpool to save money on travel. Make a plan for getting everyone to and from the location.

Oakwood Resort is close to several major cities and transportation hubs, including Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, IN as well as Chicago, IL. If someone is flying in, you can all meet up at a nearby airport and drive to the resort. Everyone will need to coordinate their arrival times if you plan on taking the same car.

Keep in Touch

Life is hectic and getting away for a girls’ weekend is often easier said than done, especially if you haven’t seen some of these people in years. Your best friends probably have a lot going on in their lives and getting them together can be a challenge.

That’s why it’s important to keep in touch with everyone on your guest list up until the day of your departure. Some of your friends may have kids or demanding jobs that prevent them from leaving town. Do your best to work with their schedule to make sure they can attend. If they need to work during the trip, encourage them to bring their laptop and work materials with them. Oakwood Resort has several conference rooms and quiet work areas onsite. Send them information about the location to help them prepare for the trip.

Plans can also change at the last minute. Contact your guests to make sure they can still attend right up until the point you have to leave.

Keep It Simple

This is your chance to bond with your girlfriends while you are still single. It’s a special time that’s not to be missed. You may only be able to get away for a few days or long weekend in between planning your wedding, so try not to overwhelm yourselves with too many activities while you’re here.

Oakwood Resort is full of fun things to do that require zero planning to give your brain a break. Getting everyone to the destination was hard enough, so you might as well relax while you’re here. Take a hike, go for a swim, and enjoy a delicious meal at our onsite restaurant. We also have a world-class salon to get you ready for your big day. Hanging out shouldn’t require a lot of thinking or preparation. Just zone out and have fun while you’re here.
