No Hassle Bachelorette Party

By Vince Leona What would you say if you can have your entire Bachelorette Party taken care of without a second of work? Brenda Berkley has made that a reality. Her new company will completely plan out your Bachelorette party and all of the events surrounding it. Brenda has taken her company national and is now working is 75 cities around the country. She will plan everything from dinner, dancing, strippers, etc. She is truly a one stop shop for Bachelorette parties. I talked to Brenda about her company.   VL: Tell me how you got started, and how you turned this thing into a huge company. BB: I started the company when I was planning my best friends Bachelorette party about 8 years ago. It was so much work. Planning the bachelorette party almost became a second job for me. So I decided that I would make a business that wasn’t there at the time. So I started by making tons of contacts here in San Francisco. Then I started putting together packages. I had a great business going here in San Francisco, so then I added Los Angeles because my sister worked there as a party planner. We started adding more and more cities. Now we are up to 75 and adding cities every month. We don’t like to add another city unless we have tons of options and contacts. So we make sure to have all of our ducks in a row before we add a new city.   VL: It is actually cheaper for girls to plan their Bachelorette Party through you also. How do you make money? BB: Well since we drive so much business to these bars, restaurants, and clubs, they pretty much pay our fee. So the girl basically gets a free service that gets them a cheaper and completely put together party. We send the girls a full agenda, and we have operators in our offices any time a problem comes up. We ever have car and taxi services available to the girls. We plan everything. We want to handle all of the stuff that is not fun. We want to make sure that all of the girls have the best time of their lives, and then make it home safe. We even have day of discount rooms at hotels in every city. If the girls decide, they can always stay at a hotel at a discount. That can be booked before the party, or any time after the party. We are a full service company. We really have thought of everything.   VL: You really have thought of everything! What advice do you give girls who don’t use your service, or in cities that you are not in. BB: The main thing is to not be overwhelmed. Treat it like a football team, one game at a time. You never want to look ahead. If you just do one thing at a time, it won’t be so overwhelming. It will also make your life a lot easier. But of course the best advice I can give is to give us a call!
