Planning a Bachelorette Party? Want to experience as much as possible but limited on funds? You don’t have to go to Vegas to make your event a success. Never fear, plenty of Brides-to-Be have had great fun on a budget. Here are some tips that will help you get the party started without depleting your bank account:

1. Pick a theme that speaks to you.

Although many women dream of living the female equivalent of the Hangover, their budget won’t allow them to pay for a Vegas vacation for all of their girlfriends. Contact a local winery to arrange a wine tasting or hit the Great Outdoors with tents in tow for a night or two under the stars.

2. Create custom invitations.

Hit the craft store and pick up supplies like glitter, ribbon, cardstock, buttons, scissors, and glue sticks. Use your creativity to create cards that reflect your theme and personality. Your guests will love the effort you put into creating your invitations.

3. Use daily deal sites to purchase items at reduced costs.

Everything from decorations to dinner can be arranged through group coupons. You can even acquire transportation this way. Bachelorette party limos are often offered at a deep discount. Keep your eyes open and plan ahead. The longer you have to look for bargains the better.

4. Rent a house not a hotel.

There are plenty of people willing to rent homes to Brides-to-Be and their guests for one flat fee. You can tell your girlfriends to bring their own bedding, choice of beverages and snacks, and their favorite movies for an adult version of a slumber party. Give each other facials, gossip, and eat to your heart’s content. You’ll have plenty of memories to share when you have this type of Bachelorette party.

5. Check out places to explore in your city.

Travel deal websites and your local Chamber of Commerce are great places to find inspiration. Gather up a whole bunch of brochures and see what a group discount would look like. There’s no telling the type of fun you can have with a little imagination and advance preparation.

Consult the Internet for more inspiration.

There are plenty of websites that offer money saving advice when it comes to getting hitched in style. Your Bachelorette Party is meant to be memorable. Don’t scrimp on the details. Although Bachelorette Party limos may seem costly, they’re not. You just need to know where to look for the deals. That’s why it’s important to get started planning your party several months in advance.
