Way to go Jeff!
You can find the podcast between these two here, but let me give you a little run down on what they discussed and some of the awesome tips Ken gave for planning the perfect bachelorette party.
In the years that Ken has been producing plays, he has gained an immense amount of knowledge on event planning, specifically bachelorette party planning, because The Awesome 80s Prom and That Bachelorette Show had, and continues to have (with the start of That Bachelorette Show) plenty to do with bachelorette parties that want to attend his shows. While The Awesome 80s Prom 10 year run, Ken fine-combed his knowledge on this subject and he gives us a few tips and words of advice on this week’s podcast that can help any girl out.
Here are two of the many tips and ideas mentioned during the podcast.
Don’t wait! Ken warns that the longer you wait, the more likely it is that the things you want to do will be booked up by the time you get around to planning.
Plan for some free time. With a lot of bachelorette parties, not all of the attendees will know each other or will want to do the same things and spend days constantly together. People need the opportunity to go out and do their own thing if you’re spending a few days together.
