When my bridesmaids asked what sort of activity I wanted to do for my bachelorette party, I knew that the goal would be to do something fun and girly– pretty much the opposite of raunchy. The girls put on their thinking caps and did a great job coming up with ideas, ultimately allowing everything to be a surprise for me as it was happening.
Around 3:00 PM I was picked up from my apartment and shuttled around to pick up some other girls, crowns, a sash and a bottle of Barefoot Moscato. We were going painting!
The girls had booked a private party at a BYOB paint studio, which couldn’t have been a more perfect activity! I’m not a huge drinker and am usually pretty lightweight, but there was something so girly and fun about popping champagne and moscato bottles while painting up a storm. (Not that I’m an artist in the least, but the alcohol definitely helped with my confidence level 😉 )
Our designated painting was a dragonfly with an orange background—a really cute choice! It was neat to see how different everybody’s painting came out at the end. Katie and I were having some issues in the whole “letting go and being artsy” department, but we figured it out as we went 😉
It was an awesome time, and couldn’t have been with a better group of people!
After painting, the girls swooped me up and we went out for dinner at a beautiful restaurant in Coral Gables, then out to Little Hoolies to finish up the night with some dancing with a crowd twice our age. Gotta love the bitter comments about marriage from random strangers! Hah!
All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect bachelorette party. These girls know me way too well!
