Being the micro-manager that I am, I kinda took the reins on planning my bachelorette party. Who is surprised by that last sentence? I really wanted to thank my girls for being such great friends so I figured if I removed the planning they wouldn't have to worry about it. I ended up renting a house in upstate New York and we stayed there for a long weekend last August. Don't let that NSFWish poster in the picture below fool you - I was not out to celebrate the end of my single-dom. The goal was to have some serious quality girl time, maybe go out on the lake, definitely get into some mischief and laugh a lot.
It was a perfect weekend for so many reasons, and I have to thank each of my friends that were there for making it so special. I knew I wanted to give them a few little mementos to remember the weekend by, and to help them get through the baboonery that was sure to ensue!
One of my requests was to have a "neon night" where we all dressed up in bright neon clothing (I'm sure you've seen a gaggle of girls all in black for many bachelorettes, I basically wanted the opposite). Thankfully neon was super trendy last summer so it was really easy for everyone to comply!
I picked up some neon sunglasses down on Canal Street (I think I haggled them down to $5 a pop) and some bright and colorful makeup bags for $3 a piece at H&M. I stuffed them with the essentials: Advil, gum, throat drops, perfumed soaps, and of course, glow stick necklaces to complete the look!
