My friend Sarah threw both my wedding shower AND my Bachelorette party, she's the best! :) They were both AMAZING parties, I had so much fun!
My bachelorette party was on July 9th, the Saturday before the wedding. I told Sarah to plan it for then because I knew that I would be WAY too busy the week before the wedding to be able to go out and have fun. :) The party ended up being INSANE, especially near the end. We ran into a bunch of NFL players at one bar and Macaulay Culkin at another. Now how many people can say that happened at their bachelorette party? And in Montana, no less?
Here's a quick rundown of the party:
Just the bridesmaids that were in town (Naomi, Jennifer and Krissy couldn't get here until a couple days before the wedding, since they're from out of town) came to the dinner before the party. During the dinner Sarah gave us our goodie bags that were full of bachelorette party favors, most of which were innapropriate!
Amanda, Kelly, me, Sarah and Suzy
After dinner we went bar hoppin! Other friends joined us at the bar and we all traveled around in "style" in a big van that the bridesmaids got for the night equipped with it's very own driver! The poor driver probably hated us by the end of the night, I know we must have been super loud and annoying, lol!
It was such a fun night. I made everyone take turns being the bachelorette, it was hilarious. Then I had a checklist that I was supposed to fill out, I wont even tell you what was on that checklist, but I made all of my bridesmaids complete each task on the list instead of me. Everything was checked off by the end of the night except two!
The following Thursday Sarah thew my bridal shower at my mom's house. She made SO much delicious food- and enough food to feed about a hundred people! (This is just some of it...)
A bunch of my out of town family and friends ended up arriving right when the shower was coming to an end, so the party kept on going. Even more people ended up coming over and we celebrated all night. I wish I had gotten more photos but I was too busy to think! I only have the few that Sarah took. :) I swear, the week before the wedding was pretty much a non stop party blur, but I LOVED it.
