We interview Sarah Patton, founder of Social Bliss Events:
Why did you decide to start Social Bliss Events?
SBE was started when I realized there was an absolute NEED for bachelorette curation. With over five years of experience in the event planning industry, this was not solely a money making venture but rather a way for me to express my creativity and provide knowledge about the city I call home. I’m a girl. I know what girls want for their “last fling before the ring”, and I can tell you exactly where to find all of the fun-filled activities.
What does this service entail?
Social Bliss Events is a full-service bachelorette planning company. We offer our clients the weekend of a lifetime. We are far from your normal cookie-cutter, pick your pre-designated package type of company. Everything is completely customized!
We coordinate the entire weekend so the bachelorette party can relax, hang with their friends and enjoy everything Nashville has to offer.
We start with a bridal profile to find out more about the bride-to-be, her likes and dislikes. Then we filter her interests and build out recommendations based on budget and time.
We offer 3 packages that range in price and experience.
1. DIY Bachelorette
2. Worry-free Bachelorette
3. Blissful Bachelorette
Who would benefit from this service?
Anyone involved with planning a bachelorette party. Our bachelorette knowledge is perfect for out-of-towners who have never visited Nashville or have only been here a few times. You tell us exactly what you want, and we’ll make it happen. We know all the fun spots! However, those who live in Nashville utilize our knowledge and connections as well. Many girls wait until the last minute to make dinner reservations or can’t find anything to do on Saturday night because everything is booked. We have developed great relationships with local establishments, and have had to call in last minute favors a time or two. We have connections that many find priceless.
Anything else you'd like the readers to know?
I’m slightly obsessed with Nashville, and our desire is to showcase the ENTIRE city. Most people come to Nashville to visit Broadway and the honky-tonks, but this city has so much more to offer. With over 10 years of Nashville-living, our team knows the city inside and out. We know the swankiest hotels, menus that will make your taste buds salivate, the nighttime hot spots, and we’re full of ideas to make your weekend one you can’t stop talking about. Did we mention that we ALWAYS inform our clients of what’s happening around town during their stay? We give them the option to incorporate Nashville the same way the locals do.
SBE takes PRIDE in what we do. We test out each restaurant, venue, hotel, etc. before sending our clients there. If we wouldn’t frequent the establishment, then we wouldn’t dare send you. All of our Nashville recommendations have been tested and SBE-APPROVED!
No two bachelorette parties are the same! It’s 2014. Bachelorette parties have moved from a one-night shindig to weekend extravaganzas. Your time spent with your closest girlfriends should be memorable. The MOH shouldn’t be worrying about how to get from point A to point B, what restaurant will take reservations AND split the bill, or have to sacrifice packing cute outfits because she needs to transport decorations.
At Social Bliss Events, we completely remove the stress for all parties involved. Whether you’re the MOH and overwhelmed with planning an unforgettable party for your bestie or the bride-to-be who swears she wants nothing to do with coordinating outfits, we step in and assist with ALL aspects of the bachelorette weekend. You can choose the hands-off approach and let us plan every detail, or you have the option of picking our brain for tips and suggestions.
Bachelorette Party Tips from Social Bliss Events:
1. Make it about the bride-to-be! Even if she wants to go bowling dressed in 80’s attire (while it may not be YOUR idea of fun) this is HER weekend!
2. Take charge! Have you ever tried to get 10 girls flying in from all across the United Sates to give you their itinerary? If not, you’re in for a treat! It’s a process to make sure everyone knows what is going on and how much each activity will cost. However, someone (most likely the MOH) has to step up to the plate and organize the weekend. If this sounds daunting, contact us! 🙂
3. Plan in advance! The earlier you book reservations, the better! We recommend booking hotels a couple months in advance, shortly followed by dining reservations and extracurricular activities (pole dancing, photographers, t-shirts, koozies, etc.). The sooner you get everything ordered and finalized, the better! Don’t wait until the last minute and have to call us to bail you out! Of course, we’ll help you out because we want everyone to experience an AMAZING time in Nashville — but avoid raising your blood pressure!
