One of my best friends is a bride-to-be and her bachelorette party is next weekend. Normally, bachelorette parties enduce the “ughhh” feeling. I’m convinced that has to do with the forced you-must-get-drunk-and-have-a-sorta-good-time mentality and obligatory feather boas and genitalia tiaras. Or maybe the overpriced party bus, pin-the-body-part games or grossly-exaggerated inflatable male you-know-whats. For this one, we’re switching it up and giving the mass bachelorette party supply factories in China a break for a little bit. And don’t worry, we won’t lose the best part of embarrassing the heck out of the blushing bride-to-be. I can’t get into the details yet, but I’m attaching my mood board for the party for a sneak peek. The goal – a perfect juxtaposition of summer party with bachelorette party. I will be posting all the photos (with any how-to info) after the party.
