I’m planning a bachelorette party! Yay!
Except…I haven’t even ever been to a bachlorette party, so I kind of have no idea what to do.
For my own “bachelorette-type party” some of my besties and I spent the weekend at one of their family cottages in Wallace, NS on the North Shore. It was charming, low-key, and included some delicious wine sampling at nearby Jost Vineyards. (Sidenote: we drank a lot of the hilariously named 4 Skins so the weekend did have a tip-of-the-hat to the traditional phallus-filled bachelorette.)
I feel so special that my kindred spirit from grad school is including me in the wedding party as a bridesmaid (Another sidenote: why is it not bride’s maid?) at her destination wedding in Cancun next month. Since we’re several provinces apart, I haven’t been able to partake in the usual bridesmaidly duties. To remedy this, I volunteered to plan a party for her gal-pals from afar once we’re all together in Mexico. I think the other maids will be happy to offer suggestions but I’m hoping to carry most of the weight of the planning myself.
I’ve picked the theme of Sparkle & Shine.
Maybe I’ve been hearing this song too often on the radio, I’m not sure, but I think it would be fun to have things glitzy with plenty of sparkles and bling.
These are the invitations I designed and I plan to bedazzle them (yes, BEDAZZLE. Jealous?) before mailing them out to the list of invitees
Now I just need to arrange for some fun games and activities. I’m also brainstorming ways to include lots of fun BLING.
To be continued.
