Finally, one of your best friends is getting hitched, and while you and the rest of the gang is certainly excited about the wedding, you can’t hide the fact that you also are pretty much ecstatic about the upcoming bachelorette party. Yes, you’ve been quite busy as of late helping your best friend prepare for the big event and you’ve been the since day one; from choosing the wedding venue, looking at the prospective dresses, and other stuff; but one thing you can’t miss out on is prepping for the bachelorette party.
As someone close to the bride, you know for a fact that the party coming before the actual wedding is a can’t-miss opportunity. And if you’re tasked of putting the bachelorette party together, you should be mindful of the party playlist. Yes, it’s true that there are so many other important matters to attend to like the venue, food, and drinks, but they won’t give the party the kick it needs because music is responsible for that.
But because a bachelorette party is unique, it means you can’t just play anything you want. Be reminded that the party playlist serves a very important role because you expect it to set the tone for the entire party. It’s a fun engagement, which means dance tunes are a staple. But even with dance tunes, you must strike a balance between new ones and classic ones.
Getting the Party Hyped Up
You obviously are pretty much aware that the first tunes in the party will dictate the kind of atmosphere for the entire night. As such, be creative enough to pick a song that will hype everyone and get the party started. For starters, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” is a regular in this type of party. Aside from Beyonce, get all guests fired up with songs like “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk, Katy Perry’s “Fireworks,” “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, and Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass.”
But right after the fire starter, you also need to tune down a bit. Today most popular songs are described as fast and upbeat, mostly intended for parties like the one you’re throwing for your best friend, but it doesn’t mean it’s always about dancing since you also have to throw in there some classic and old school tunes. To make the night a lot more interesting and funny, go for music courtesy of Spice Girls, Madonna, Britney Spears, and even Cyndi Lauper.
Close Out the Evening With Sentimental Tunes
Lastly, the best way to end the night is by playing some slow music and change the atmosphere into a more sentimental one for celebrating your friend’s transition in life, friendship as a whole, and a showcase of your support to her.
