How do you plan a bachelorette party and a bridal shower?
The bridal shower is very simple. Choose someplace to hold it, maybe someones home or a room in a restaurant. Arrange for food and drink. Discuss who should be invited with the bride. Get invitations and invite them. Get a few simple decorations if you wish. Show up to the shower. Done. I would recommend holding it a couple months out from the wedding. Don't invite people who aren't invited to the wedding. Consider keeping it to close friends and relatives. People who don't know the bride very well aren't going to feel like showering her with gifts.
The bachelorette party depends on what the bride wants, those are much more variable. Speak with her directly and see what she has in mind. My only recommendation is to have it a week or two before the wedding so everyone is well rested for the actual wedding, don't hold it the night before.
What are good bachelorette party ideas where an underage bridesmaid can be included?
I went to a bachelorette party that was a Mani-Pedi-Margi-Marti Party. It was at a spa that allowed us to bring in liquor, and we had margaritas (Margi) and martinis (Marti) while we had our mani/pedis. We had one non-drinker (pregnant BM) and she enjoyed her spa time just as much as everyone else.
Another I went to was at a "paint your own ceramics" store where you each pick out a plain piece of "unkilned" ceramic and paint it. We each painted a picture frame and gave it to the bride, but you could certainly paint and keep your own.
The most recent one was for an underaged bride, so most of the BMs were also under 21. The MOB and MOG were also invited (I am a friend of the MOB, so that's how I ended up there) so the activities were VERY tame. We went to an amusement center where they have mini-golf, arcade games, laser tag, bumper boats, batting cages, go-karts, and other fun stuff. I was a little skeptical at first but everyone had a good time in the end. We even got the groom's mom to play Dance Dance Revolution.
What is bachelorette etiquette when it comes to one person planning a party?
Assuming that you all will be drinking, present it like the bus is the designated driver, and its not free. Plus, parking will be easier parking 1 bus, rather than 10 cars. Plus, if you go someplace where you have to pay for parking, this will just help that.
So, they can either pay a few bucks to ride the party bus, or drive themselves and not drink or risk a DUI.
Dude, Dianna has to be kidding me. I woke up this morning hoping Jason was going to be picked and watching the show tonite brought me to tears. Jason is this perfect guy with this awsome child and she just couldnt see how amazing he was. I'm just like blown away and I just can't get over it either.
I really hope she is inlove with Jesse because I would hate if later on in her relationship with him she realized that he isn't the one.
Also, I can understand she went for the total opposite of what she looks for but that's just a risk she had to take.
I can't say that I'm happy with her decision. I wish more hapiness to Jason than to her but I hope she's happy too.
It will be aired next Monday. I like Frank--seems to be down to earth, level headed and non-controversial. Justin reminds me to much of Vienna in last season. Kasey--what's with his voice? He talks like he has a sore throat and puts his words into rapid fire. I miss some of what he says. And why would he get a tattoo? You can't wash it off! Idiot!!
