Fun and Unique Bachelorette Party Ideas

Honestly, I never wanted the screaming drunk mayhem that gets associated with bachelorette parties. I want it to be fun, adventurous, and different. I know I’m not alone out there so I am putting ideas up for those brides who want something to remember. I looked at our bachelorette party packages and picked some ideas that I think are off the beaten track. Send this list to your Maid of Honor and see what kind of memories you can make.

Move over boys it’s time for some  the women to play with big toys in the dirt!  Have you ever thought it would be cool to operate an excavator, bulldozer or skid steer?   Then now is your opportunity to play in the dirt.  On your digging adventure you can doze and excavate dams and ponds. Move and remove sand, gravel, rock, and other materials from your own individual work area. Continue reading →

What’s your favorite trend for weddings at the moment?
Although some of my associates might say that my favorite trend is the photo booths, my favorite trend is actually the choreographed first dance. I think it’s such a sweet moment between the newlyweds and I think it’s great that they actually took the time to learn a dance together. Plus people actually pay attention when it’s a choreographed dance!

What FireFly package would you pick for your bachelorette party?

I would definitely pick Dangerous Beauty – I’d like to try something I wouldn’t do out of the ordinary… Shooting range, trapeze and Pole dancing!

Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelorette party? Why?
I’d invite Ellen Degeneres because I admire her and she’d be fun to dance with, Kathy Griffin because she’s not afraid to laugh at herself and Gwen Stefani because she’s a talented musician, confident and classy with an edge!

What’s your most outrageous memory at a wedding?
Thankfully, I haven’t had too many outrageous moments at my weddings, but I think the one incident that sticks out the most was when I had a grumpy DJ. I mentioned this to some already but the DJ told me that he was going to charge the bride/groom $100 for providing a vendor meal instead of a guest meal. That threw me off for a second but they ended up acceptimg the veggie guest meal I offered!

Which wedding are you: Beach, Mountain, Forest, or Countryside?
Neither! I pick City – I just love clean simple lines and I really like having the skyline as a backdrop.

Your rich uncle Donald (trump) gives your $5 million dollars. How would you spend that on a wedding?
I’d spend $60,000 on my entire wedding with 100 of my closest friends and family. Then I’d use the rest to build an animal sanctuary so that I could rescue all the dogs in the shelter, spay and neuter them and get them adopted to loving homes.

Who would you rather deal with: The hung over Groom, Interfering Mother of the Bride or a Bridezilla?
I’ve dealt with all of the above and I’d definitely pick the hungover groom. Hands down, guys are easier to deal with.

Finish this sentence: If I could give one piece of wedding advice it would be…
to sit back, relax and remember that at the end of the day, all the details do not matter as much as you marrying the love of your life!
