Our Take: It's 2018, so customize your vision around the guest (or guests) of honor. What's your person's idea of a fun, awesome day with her (male and female, because co_ed means more Best Humans involved) people? If she's more of a hiker than a pinkies_up tea drinker, throwing a campfire lunch at a cabin in the mountains would be a killer way to celebrate. And if you get the feeling that your BFF would rather be doing literally anything than having people watch her open a pile of presents? Well, you can either let people know you'll be skipping the ritual present opening, or ditch the traditional gift_giving.
Traditionally: The people that will be attending are also invited to the wedding. The party is usually thrown by a maid of honor, the wedding party, or a female relative of the bride. Wedding party members often split the costs, if the wedding party is spearheading.
