Here are some bachelorette party games to either break the ice, get to know the other guests, competitive team games or just to crack a smile. These games are great for bridal showers as well. In our experience, games that sound ridiculous on paper are a ton of fun. Make sure you give it a chance before blowing it off. A little alcohol can make any of these more fun as well.

Whoo Hoo! We got a little love in the Orange County Business Journal this past week. They did an article on how small business owners (that’s us) are coping in the current economy. It’s definitely a topic close to our heart(and pockets). If you want to see what wisdom we spewed check out the article: http://www.ocbj.com/news/2010/may/16/small-business-owners-find-different-ways-grow-rec/
When you’re gathering the Wolf Pack for your buddy’s bachelor party, you need to have a timeline. Plan the party a few months prior to the big night or weekend – this will factor enough time for everyone invited to clear their calendar. If you’re going BIG then your friends will also have time to figure out how they’re going to rob their piggy bank. Planning ahead insures that you get first choice on activities, accommodations, and transportation. An added bonus to getting in early is you can save some cash for the group. We usually advise our clients to budget at least three months for planning a bachelor party. The first month is getting ideas & sending invites; the second month is booking & chasing the money(we can help with that); and the third month is tying up loose ends and lighting a fire under the stragglers.

Is it just your closest that are coming to the bachelorette party? Or will Grandma and your mother-in-law be invited as well – do you want your mother in-law seeing you a little tipsy having a lap dance from Raoul?! It’s worth taking a moment and considering what the party tone will be. If you’re uncomfortable “letting loose” in front of everyone, there are options. You could divide the night into tame and crazy. Have a nice dinner with the whole gaggle then head out for some naughtiness with just the girls. Most moms, grandmas, and great-aunts will understand and even encourage you. If you’re considerate and plan ahead you should be able to have your cake and then lick the frosting off Raoul later. =)

What’s your favorite trend for weddings at the moment?
I love that couples are finding their own voices beyond just the oversimplification of picking colors but are showing who they are in their events, looking beyond wedding magazines and traditional floral centerpieces to creating an environment that speaks to who they are and why they are together.
Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelorette party? Why?
Carmen Electra or Kim Kardashian as both seem just sassy enough to spice things up and maybe Tim Gunn because he rocks.
What’s your most outrageous memory at a wedding?
A pick-pocketing mariachi followed by a freak wind storm which took out our centerpieces and ignited a number of small fires in the reception space, followed by a power outage, overflowing bathrooms, the mother of the bride falling in the pool, my staff and I having all of our clothes and shoes stolen and the fireworks guy getting arrested before he could set off the fireworks. After all this, ending the night by tumbling down cliffside stairs with 6 other vendors like drunk pirates on a ski slope…Clearly, this was in Mexico. And if I may brag, it was a masterpiece of coordination that we covered everything up so the guests had no idea that any of this happened including making new centerpieces in the 10 minutes before the guests arrived, putting out the fires, tripping the breakers to restore power, fixing and mopping the bathrooms, jumping in the pool with the mother of the bride to insinuate that it was an intentional pool party, stealing our clothes and shoes back from the vagrants who stole them and getting the fireworks guy out of jail then sending him out to sea in a rowboat so he could set them off from the ocean. All in a day’s work, my friends.
Which wedding are you: Beach, Mountain, Forest, or Countryside?
Countryside or Mountain maybe forest…NOT beach. I’m not a fan of sand as it’s a total menace and gets into everything…and prevents a girl from wearing heals. Winter mountain scene with birch trees, furs and hot toddies could be amazing…long dramatic countryside tables are always fab – chandeliers over an open table overflowing with estate silver and crystal and mismatched china with rich bustled layered linens is always delicious…or a long reclaimed wood table in the forest with candelabras and heavy rustic glassware and china, bear skins and leather accents like a mid-century post battle feast – rad.
Who would you rather deal with: The hungover Groom, Interfering Mother of the Bride or a Bridezilla?
Hungover Groom EVERY TIME. Interfering mothers and overindulged bridezillas who take themselves too seriously I have no patience for.
Finish this sentence: If I could give one piece of wedding advice it would be…
to make it your own. You have one shot at this and it’s the most important party you are ever going to throw….it shouldn’t be about anyone other than you and your beau. And if your groom isn’t involved, get him involved, find out which elements interest him as it’s as much his day as it is yours. And don’t forget humor – it should be as present in the wedding day as heart and style.
