I’ve been to exactly one bachelorette party. It was a lot of fun. Just a few close friends, no guys.
We all got together at the bride’s house (my best friend), which was decorated in a Hawaiian theme. Drinks were had by all except me (I was going to be driving), dancing and listening to goofy music was also on the agenda. There were a lot of penis-shaped things: a penis-shaped drink container, penis-shaped candy… you know. I have never understood why this is a requirement for a bachelorette party, but if it makes people happy… haha. The candy was horrible and flavourless which made it even funnier, though. One of our friends gave the bride her first thong, which we all took turns putting on over our clothes.
Went to a few bars, wearing leis and flowers in our hair and carrying penis-shaped accessories. Drank… well, they drank, anyway, and we all danced. The band playing in the first bar wanted an audience member to sing with them, so I got up and did it. At another bar, the bride threw the thong up in the air and it got stuck in the rafters. The DJ came out to get it down.
Afterwards, we went to our favourite 24-hour greasy restaurant, and drove around in my car listening to music. Stopped at a park and played on the swings and slides. The night ended with all of us crashing on the floor in the bride’s basement and having a girly slumber party.
Nothing wild went on, but it was one of the best nights of my life. I’d love to do it again for no reason at all.
Neither my friends nor I are the type who are into strippers and male “entertainment”, though, we just took it as a night to be girly and wacky and do whatever we wanted.
(I miss them so much. Now I want to go home and see them even more!)
