The idea of getting away from the hassles of everyday life with your closest girl buddies is heavenly even when you visualize it. Group pedicures, spa days, beaches and cocktails…not to forget, the endless shopping.
However, the only way your trip can be as dreamy as you envision it to be, is when you have put in proper planning and attention into every detail. In fact, Schofields has even compiled a list of some flying tips, so the experience is fun right from the time you take off for your trip.
Here are some things to keep in mind, so you are able to pull off a successful all-girls getaway:
- Keeping group dynamics in mind
Having a compatible group is extremely crucial. You may want all your best friends to tag along, but are you sure they will get along together? While planning the guest list for the trip, one has to be selective. Dealing with odd behavior can be a mess. You don’t want to spend half your trip dealing with grumpy people or handling catfights!
Once you have decided on the group, it’s important to get everyone onboard while planning. This way, you get to know the common interests and can cater to them accordingly. Resorts are an excellent choice for first time group outings.
- The key lies in advance planning
A lot of clear correspondence is required for a group trip. It’s always advisable to give yourself plenty of time for planning. Also, ensure that you have a firm commitment from all the members before you actually book anything. This has to be given immense importance when you are getting a group discount because even if one member drops out at the last minute, everyone’s cost goes up as you lose a deal.
When it comes to group trips, the fewer the surprises are, the better it is. That way, everyone knows what to expect and things can go as planned.
- Being considerate of other’s finances
Be mindful of the cost limits of those who aren’t as well off as the others. Nobody should feel left out when restaurants and accommodation is booked. Flexibility is important. Apart from this, it is also important to be respectful of everyone’s difference. If the meeting time is at 8 AM, not everyone is going to be there at 8 sharp. And it’s okay. So don’t fret over trivial issues.
So pick up the phone, create a texting group and start sending invites out to your girl-gang for your next weekend getaway.
