I love Bachelorette Parties. I think they are a great way to relieve some tension and have the Bride and Bridesmaids bond before the big day. So when we were asked to plan the Bachelorette Party for our Bride Rebecca, I jumped at the chance.
Knowing the Bride, she was not a big fan of embarrassing "adult entertainment" nor was she one to go to clubs, so the party needed to be planned so that she would have a good time and not feel uncomfortable.
The Bridesmaids decided to host a swanky cocktail party to be held at the Maid of Honor's house and then go out to a local comedy club. Since Rebecca is a big fan of "Sex and The City" and the premier of the movie was coming up, it was decided that the theme of the party would be "Diva and The City."
The guests were asked to dress in pink and black to match the theme. Strands of pink crystals and pearls were hung from the ceiling and the room was filled with candles and pink rose petals.
We designed unique centerpieces for the table that showcased sexy stiletto heels with pink and black faux fur purses, and over-sized "diamond rings." We also created an over-sized "Cosmopolitan" cocktail centerpiece.
Everyone nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and sipped cocktails with risque names like "French Kiss" (French Martini made with Chambord, Vodka, and Pineapple Juice) and "Dirty Girl" (Dirty Vodka Martini with a splash of Dry Vermouth and extra olive juice).
Each guest had to pick a handmade cocktail charm to tie to their martini glass that said fun things like "Smokin' Hot", "Bombshell," and "Little Devil."
For dessert, the guests were treated to pink cupcakes with our custom toothpick toppers that read "Rebecca's Bachelorette Bash" and mini cheesecakes from Cheesecake Aly in Glen Rock, NJ.
During dessert, the guests played "20 Questions for the Bride." Each guest had to answer 20 questions such as "If you had to marry one of your ex-boyfriends, who would it be?" in the way they thought the Bride would answer them. Then the guests swapped answer sheets so they could be graded fairly. Then Rebecca answered the questions out loud. If the answer matched the answer on the sheet that the guest was holding, the guest had to take a drink.
Then it was off to Bananas Comedy Club in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. One thing that I thought was really smart was that a couple of the guests' husbands hung around at the cocktail party to act as designated drivers for the night so no one would have to worry about driving while intoxicated. It was also nice that the boys helped clean up after the girls throughout the whole night!
Everyone had a fantastic time at the comedy club. Rebecca was very excited to see Bobby Collins which is one of her favorite comedians. After the show, it was back to the Maid of Honor's house for more food, drinks, and funny stories. I definitely think this was a night Rebecca and her Bridesmaids will never forget.
All the best,
