Do you have a friend who's about to tie the knot? Perhaps her nerves are starting to act up, especially as the big day draws closer. If you're looking to chase away those pre-wedding jitters, a rousing bachelorette party could be just what she needs. And what better way to leave a gal feeling like a million bucks than an evening of glamour shots?
You can always visit a professional to get some wonderful group shots taken, but if budget is a concern, there's nothing wrong with simply bringing a digital camera to the party. Make sure you head to a costume store and pick up a bunch of silly accessories. Fuzzy pink boas, sparkling plastic tiaras and cowboy hats are de rigeur for this type of shindig.
After you've donned your gear and taken plenty of photos, why not hit the town? Keep everything on and head out for a thrilling evening with your gal pals. This is also a great opportunity to give your fellow bridesmaids a little something to thank them for their time. Personalized round compacts are gorgeous and easy to carry around, and what better occasion to try them out than the bachelorette party?
Of course, it doesn't have to be quite so elaborate. You can keep things simple without much issue. Personalized stemless wine glasses are sure to be well received, and the recipients will fondly remember the great bachelorette party every time they reach for a glass. A cute flip flop bottle opener could be a nice addition to their keychains, as well.
Remember, the bachelorette party is all about the bride-to-be, so make sure to give her the royal treatment. Insist that she wears the most ridiculous outfit when you all head out. You can even set her up with a photo scavenger hunt, asking her to take pictures with three different bartenders or with a pink drink. There are plenty of things you can think up, and she'll love the challenge.
Weddings are always a unique mix of stress and anticipation, and it's up to you and your fellow bridesmaids to calm down the betrothed for at least one evening. She'll definitely appreciate the gesture. After all, what's a better way to sooth your nerves than to dress like a cowgirl and hit the town with your besties?
