Organizing a bachelorette party

And need some help!

I'll take my chance that she will not read this

Her sister is on the way, so I contacted her through Facebook and she suggested a male strip club... she obviously doesn't know much about Basel

So any ideas?

At least don't do it the Swiss way and try to sell overpriced shots on the street with silly dressed friends please - what a low way of spending the best night of your life.

And how often do you then see the man group accidentally meet the girl group because the Niederdorf is about as big as a bread box?

Re: Organizing a bachelorette party

Hen's night?

Party, drink, wear funny clothes, make random challenges for the 'victim' or best yet fly to Amsterdam (Easyjet) thats what I did for my bucks. No it was nothing like that... we're all too mature to be sampling LOTN

Re: Organizing a bachelorette party

Hire simon_ch I heard he's a cutie

On a serious note I had my bachelorette high tea (I am 36 and have seen enough naked me believe me ---> I am after all an MD ).
So really I would recommend checking with her closest friends (other than you of course) ... otherwise there might be some nasty surprises..

Re: Organizing a bachelorette party

Sorry, I stopped performing 15 years ago. The Rate was CHF 600 in DK back then, so it would probably cost you a fair bit more today.

Doc.

Re: Organizing a bachelorette party

We need background on the victim... I have seen a hen night group which cured out their hangover in a mixed sauna. For icelanders, this probably seems as normal as for me... but judging from the discussions on here, it seems to be far worse than strip clubs for others...

Ok, well, it depends on the bride-to-be. Is she wild and crazy or is she someone who really doesn't like the party-scene? Typically, there is a theme for the night. For example, all the girls wear a certain color different from the bride and the bride has many fun props that distinguish her as the bride. Themes are a good way to unite the group, so no matter what kind of girl the bride is, I recommend a theme for the group...

If she is wild and crazy, then I suggest a bar crawl full of drinking and tasks she must complete. So you (and/or the sister) write down different types of challenges on cards that she must pick from during the night (things like getting a condom from a stranger or getting some random guy to buy her a drink, giving the first guy who approaches her her phone number, etc... how crazy she is usually determines the challenges). She has to complete a certain number of tasks at each bar. Usually we like to give the bride a couple vetoes so that if it is something she would never do, she can veto it. Otherwise, you girls watch her make a fool of herself all night long and get her really really drunk.

If she is tame, then I recommend a nice dinner out with the girls and then out to a club dancing (if she likes dancing) or maybe to hear some live music. This one is more difficult because it depends on what she likes to do.

Most importantly, surround her with friends/family that love her and show her a fantastic time. This is really all that matters.
