11 Tips For Hosting Your Successful Lingerie Party
It’s a great idea you want to host a lingerie party. It’s beautiful bringing the girls together in a very romantic and sensual mood. The first thing you must note about lingerie parties is that it is, of course, a lingerie party and not a pajama party. Well, I suppose you know the difference. While a pajama party is a sleepover party and any sleepwear is allowed, a lingerie party requires all attending – including you the host, to wear a beautiful and sexy lingerie. This party could be just for the ladies, it could as well be Coed. But one thing is for sure, a lingerie party is for fun while feeling sexy. It doesn’t matter the reason you are throwing this party, this is a complete guide to throwing a lingerie party, and making it a success.
Time waits for no one.
You must have heard this cliche time and again, but wonder how it relates to this issue. Well, it does. The more time you put into planning your party, especially your lingerie party, the more the result you get from it. It is a practical law of parties. You surely do need time to plan everything, time to send invites. You need at least two weeks, this isn’t much time, but it is possible to plan and execute in two weeks. You may want to hire event planners or professionals to help you out, the choice is yours; but you still need to give them time to plan.
Do not be shy about why you’re hosting your party
This seems obvious, but can be tricky for some people. The success of your lingerie party depends on this “obvious” reason because there are different types of lingerie party.
- Sales Party: Some people might want to host a sales party and decide to go lingerie. They may even use models, others invite women and make them be models for the night
- Shower/Special occasions – you may want to celebrate an anniversary, Bachelor Parties, bridal showers, or even reunions and a lingerie party are one of the most popular options.
- Girls’ night: Sometimes, you just want to relax with the ladies, play games, hang out, talk or just have fun with fellow ladies without the usual guys’ vibes.
- Sexy lingerie party: This type of party is mainly coed, and done especially in colleges/universities and places where they are matured enough to attend.
- Showroom lingerie party – these are lingerie parties done at a business where lingerie is specifically sold. Of course, they are different from the sales lingerie party since they are hosted in the showroom (or on the business premises) instead of in the house.
Just inform your guests what type of party it is. Marketing lingerie parties are popular too, so if it is, let the guests know upfront. Also, let them know if it’s just a sexy party, and there is no reason not to combine more than one reasons if you can pull it off.
Lingerie parties are also safe zones
It is completely in place for people to feel sexy in private areas. Places where they can go and feel comfortable and safe with other people who are like minded. These parties are an intimate affair, so it’s best to make sure all guests feel comfortable being present. Even in the academia, a certain degree of comfort is expected. That’s why the previous tip was to clarify the nature of the lingerie party. If your guests are there to have fun, and you end up selling them products, they will not feel comfortable in the situation. If you intend doing it for business or for pleasure, be sure everyone feels comfortable.
Always have the main room
You must keep a single room where most of the party events is going to take place. The room should be decorated to indicate that it is the main room for the party. Remove anything that is not in line with the theme of your party. All the intended games, eating, and drinking must be done in this room. This will make your guests comfortable as they will feel together in one room.
Get a theme for your party
Themes add flavor and spark to your party, themes are generally cool. Everyone remembers a themed party. To this end, you must always theme or have a theme when hosting your party. The theme gives the party life and it also personalizes it. Here you can fly your creativity as high as possible. Take, for instance, the mere fact that it is a bridal shower does not mean that the theme must be “weddings”. It could also be: “Genesis” or “A new beginning” “My Little Pony” or even “star wars”. You can check up on party planning websites to see amazing themes for your party.
Once you have known what your lingerie party is all about and you have got a theme, next up is to decorate properly. You do not want to decorate your venue with things related to weddings you’re your party is a valentine party, do you? These are two different things.
Prepare a good food selection
No matter the kind of lingerie party you do, food is a big part of it. You need appetizers and snacks, including a main course or two. It is also worthy to mention that having a variety of food helps spice the event. Fries and dips are not bad, but you also need finger foods. You will be on the safe side if you prepare something for both vegetarians and meat eaters, (unless if your lingerie party is strictly for vegetarians). If you are on a budget, do not push yourself too much, measure your expected guests and prepare for them, if you have a variety.
Match the bar to the party
Even if it’s a marketing party, do not shy away from drinks. Traditionally, the drinks for most of the best exotic women undergarment parties are wine. If you are marketing, provide the needed wine. Also, if it is a party where you have many wine drinkers, make sure you have more wine than liquor. If you are hosting a co-ed party, then liquor is expected. One of the numerous questions people ask is if it’s proper to ask your guests to bring something along, the answer is ‘yes’. However, if you want them to bring wine or drinks, you shouldn’t ask them to bring food, and vice versa. Then this must be disclosed earlier in the invitation.
Prepare games and gifts.
You don’t want your party to be boring, so you need to prepare activities and games which will keep everyone occupied during the course of the event. Plan all the games you want everyone to participate in, and prepare gifts to hand out to the winners to encourage participation. The idea of games and gifts is to create memories which will keep people talking for a long time to come. It also helps add spice and fun to your party, which is why the guests came in the first place.
Invites should be sent only after the planning is done
You should only send invitations after planning as stated in the tips above. It doesn’t matter if you have a date and venue for your event. A good party invitation is only sent after all the planning have been concluded. Having decided on all the tips above, you already have a theme for your lingerie party, which will help you craft your invitation. Remember, plan first, and then invite after.
Your lingerie party is here, have fun.
You’ve put in a lot in the planning and preparation for this party, if properly done, everything will flow naturally. Now, all you need do is relax and have fun. You don’t have to force it, just be calm and flow with the party. Remember, it’s all about you enjoying yourself.
