NAS: Bachelorette Party Ideas

It's inevitable that we will plan our friends bachelorette parties at some point or another, but how do we make them fun without all the raunch? Give us your ideas for fun things to do with a bridal party without all the crazy.

If you have been around this blog for a while you know that I went to 5 wedding this past summer. And of course the weddings aren't just the ceremony and reception.  As a lady you are also often invited to the bridal shower and bachelorette party.  I am in the often unpopular club of "I love going to showers and bachelorette parties!"  Yeah they involve spending money on gifts but these parties' games bring out my competitive side and my mind begins to look like that Field Hockey scene from Mean Girls.  Also I love the whole get dressed up and watch someone open gifts thing.  You are allowed to call me crazy.  

Anywho there are two comments I want to make about Bachelorette Parties.  Know that when I say Bachelorette Party I do not mean bar hopping and strippers.   I mean girls' night, winery, sash/crown, personal gifts, etc.  The first, and probably the best idea I have ever come across addresses the whole drinking thing.  So you know how Bachelorette parties normally involve some short of "how well do you know your groom" and other such quizzes to stump up the bride?  And you know how the bride if she gets it wrong is supposed to take a shot?  Yeah, that could turn into a
stumbling bride in no time.  Instead, may I suggest swigs of a mixed drinkSame concept, different results.  The genius of making the bride drink a mixed drink is that if she gets more than a couple wrong she still has drunken enough to feel it but not enough to be friends with the porcelain throne.  Your welcome.

Secondly, lingerie.  Most of our good friends have striven for chased relationships through the game of dating.  They have said no, stayed modest, and read Theology of the Body.  Now they are getting married and consummation and the marital act will ensue.  Get the girl some pretty panties and bras.  Celebrate marriage as it was meant to be.  Giggle at the fact that a boy now gets to see her bra.   Though Victoria's Secret might be that Target has some beautiful options that are way more in budget.   


I also linked up @Amongst Lovely Things with her "Funniest Post".  I try to be funny but when I write I normally fall somewhere between not funny at all and a quick smirk. If Sarah can post two posts I figured I could too.  The  winners were #chorniclesnightshift and The Five Stages of Finals. Go check it out if you want a little smirk.
