If you’ve been anywhere around the wedding industry lately, you will have noticed that the bachelorette party is having a major moment. No longer is it just a simple girls night out-it is now common for the celebration to involve travel and last for days. I LOVE excuses for quality time with girlfriends and was totally guilty of having a girls getaway weekend before my own wedding (in Brown County, IN. so lovely!), but I also get that all the special events connected with modern weddings can start to get exhausting. And expensive.
But we still need bachelorette parties! I find it so odd that we spend so much time showering the bride with gifts for the cooking, cleaning, and decorating aspects of her married life and don’t take the time to honor and celebrate the sexual part of her nuptials. Maybe it’s just me, but I think sex should should overshadow the new mixing bowls. But that aside, one of my besties is getting married next month, so I offered to host a party for her. And lucky for me, she suggested a more low-key event instead of a trip to Vegas.
But low-key can still be fun. So, here’s what I did:
1. I mailed these adorable invitations (printed from Paperless Post).
3. I prepped this adorable craft (supplies from Michaels. help from Mom).
4. I planned some fun, lighthearted games.
5. I bought underwear.
6. I showed up!
Ta-da! Easy, classy, and no male genitals involved.
Anyone else have any fun bachelorette party ideas?
