Bachlorette Party Hits The Bars For A Creative Girls’ Night Out

A woman walked into a bar…and immediately had every guy in the bar eating out of the palm of her hand. You see, it was her bachelorette party and she was on a mission. Celebrating her last night as a single woman, her best girlfriends and I (the girls’ night out coordinator) had charged her with certain tasks to complete on this night of adventure. This was the third and last stop on our bar-hopping journey.
At the first bar, which happened to be owned by a family friend, I arranged for her to be the “Hostess with the Mostest” and wait on tables until she got $20 bucks in tips. Thank goodness, she was wearing a huge “Bride To Be” sash over her outfit so everyone was in on the fun. Because of her sweet smile—and tightly fitting blouse—she was able to get those tips in no time. And, off to the second spot we went.
This time, the challenge was a bit different. She needed her dancing shoes for this one because there was a long line of single guys waiting to get their dance with the bride to be. The DJ called her to the center of the dance floor, and you could see the perplexed and curious look on her face. Not knowing what was coming, she nervously stood there as he announced that she was the belle of the ball and needed to dance with 10 lucky guys before the night was through. Tall guys, short guys, not-so-sober guys quickly made their way to the dance floor. It reminded me of an episode of “Dancing With The Stars”—only she was the star! Having two left feet all of her life, this was especially challenging, awkward and extremely funny for us to watch. Thank goodness she had a few drinks to loosen her up.
By the time we got to the third and final stop, she was well on her way to being the bride of the year! Totally stepping outside of her comfort zone and having the time of her life, I had had planned for the last activity to be a fun, embarrassing way to give her a souvenir she never forget—and have a hard time explaining it to her new hubby! This time, she was given black marker as her sole weapon and was charged with getting 20 single guys to autograph her shirt. By the end of the night, she was covered in well wishes—and even a couple of phone numbers (just in case, I guess!)
We all left the bar thinking, “What a cool idea this was!” We created memories to last a lifetime and successfully ushered her into her new life with fun and frivolity. I knew she wouldn’t have had it any other way. Just before last call, I gave each of the girls a cocktail girls’ night out favor to remember the night that lasted until the wee hours of the morning.
