The party playlist isn’t usually the first thing on your mind when planning a bachelorette party. On top of all the decorating and event planning for the night, it’s easy to let your playlist stay on the back burner. But the music you have at the party can make the difference between having an OK time, and having a blast at a night with lots of fun memories!
Bachelorette Party Songs Tips & Tricks
Figuring out the perfect playlist can be stressful and feel downright impossible. Especially if you have a big group for your shindig, how do you create a playlist that strikes everyone’s fancy? That’s where we come in.
We’ve created song lists for every bachelorette party occasion and put together some helpful tidbits to help you create your playlist.
Rule number one of creating a killer playlist, don’t procrastinate! If you’re running out of time and scrambling to get songs at the last minute, chances are, you’re going to miss a lot of bangers for the party. Not to mention, some guests might notice if their favorite song isn’t included. Plan ahead and don’t wait!
PRO TIP! When you send out save the date bachelorette party invitations, have people RSVP with a song they want to hear. This way, everyone gets to jam out to one of their favorite songs.
Here Comes the Bride
When you’re making your playlist, the bride-to-be should be at the forefront of your mind. If you’re into hip-hop rap but the bride likes old country, then DMX probably shouldn’t make the cut. Ask her about some of her favorites, especially songs she likes to dance to, because let’s face it, at some point in the night you’re going to try to get her to dance on a table.
PRO TIP! If the bride is being stingy with her music requests, ask her fiance. Odds are they know exactly what songs she likes to sing in the shower.
Know Your Guests
While the bride’s music tastes should be your first thought, the next should be the other guests. What kind of crowd are you rolling with? Do they regularly hit up the country line dance bars, or do they turn up at a nightclub? The point is, you want to know your audience and understand the musical tastes of the girls who are going to choose the best bachelorette party songs.
PRO TIP! Check out the Must-Have list we put together for songs that are bound to get everyone dancing to the beat.
center Bachelorette Party Songs around your Theme
If you’ve got a theme or a slogan for the party that revolves around an artist or song, then you bet your bottom dollar that it needs to be on your playlist. Even if you have a funny theme like mermaids, if you start playing ‘Under the Sea’ your group will most definitely join in for the chorus.
PRO TIP! No one has ever gone wrong with a Beyoncé themed playlist. Slay girls, slay.
Don’t Let the DJ Go Rogue
If you have a DJ at the party, don’t make the mistake of not providing them a playlist of songs. Odds are if you let them go rogue with their choice selection, the group probably won’t like it. Stay ahead of the game and give the DJ something to work with.
PRO TIP! If you don’t have a playlist or a list of songs, at least help the DJ out by giving a music genre and time period. That way you’ll have a chance of the DJ rolling out some hits that your group will love.
