If you’ve thrown a party in a home or hall, be sure to clean up once everyone’s headed home so the bride doesn’t have to. You should also collect all the photos from the guests in a group chat, and help your bride send out thank yous to everyone who came.

  • Make sure you have a clear idea of what the bride-to-be wants.

  • Create a group chat with guests to brainstorm ideas.

  • Keep a notebook where you can write down everything from game ideas to booking information.

  • Ask for help if you need it - you don’t have to do everything on your own!
