Smart Ideas: Parties Revisited

How to Come Up with the Best Bachelorette Party Playlist

If one of the close girl friends finally get hitched, you obviously are one of the handful of people who’s utterly excited for the actual wedding day; but for the moment, you likewise can’t contain the same excitement for the upcoming bachelorette party. It may be true that you’re very busy with helping your best friend handle all the essential stuff in the wedding preparation, but mind you, you can’t afford to fail in your job of organizing the bachelorette party.

One of the best things about an upcoming wedding is the party that precedes it. As the person given the responsibility to throw this party for the bride, you need to value the importance of coming up with the best possible bachelorette party playlist. Although you usually will focus on other important aspects of the party like the venue, food, and drinks, any kind of party will never be that exciting and fun without the ideal music.

But you’re not just bringing with you any type of music. Be reminded that the party playlist serves a very important role because you expect it to set the tone for the entire party. Considering that the event is all about having fun before getting hooked up, it means dance tunes are a must. But even with dance tunes, you must strike a balance between new ones and classic ones.

Hyping Up the Party

You obviously are pretty much aware that the first tunes in the party will dictate the kind of atmosphere for the entire night. Therefore, pick a song to hype everybody up. For one, you shouldn’t miss out on Beyonce’s proven track for bachelorette parties, “Single Ladies.” But aside from Beyonce, you also have other proven tracks to fuel the fire like Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” “Happy” by Pharrell, Katy Perry’s “Fireworks,” and Justin Timberlake’s “Sexy Back.”

Old School

But right after the fire starter, you also need to tune down a bit. Today most popular songs are usually upbeat and fast, but you can keep it interesting by suddenly throwing in some throwback music. If you want the guests to appreciate your kind of music, give them something to reminisce and laugh at the same time; say like the tunes of Britney Spears, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and even the Spice Girls!

Closing Out the Evening

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.
