COCKTAIL RECIPE: Bachelorette Weekend!
OUR 5 MUST-HAVES FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE BACHELORETTE WEEKEND
YAAAAS! Your girl is getting married!
Now it’s time to plan the bachelorette weekend. We’re talking back to freshman year, and having an all-out, unforgettable weekend. You’ve booked the perfect location, scouted all the most insta-worthy eat spots, picked a theme, and secured everyone’s deposit. So, here are our five must-haves to remind the other bridesmaids why you’re MOH.
The Bachelorette Box
What better way to say "I am the Maid-of-Honor" than to welcome the party with a Bachelorette Box?! Head on over to Target and get a few cute, hard-side boxes, some of that shredded paper, and probably some glitter. Glitter makes anything better!
Start this box with all the cuteness, like Ring Pops, plastic penises, and matching temporary tattoos (kind of like a Return to Tiffany’s bracelet, but cheaper and much more practical for the nights of debauchery ahead).
Of course, you will also need to add a miniature bottle of champagne to kick the party off (dare we mention that IG post of everyone popping champagne bottles at the same time).
For the finishing touch, add in a card to say thank you for helping celebrate our wife-to-be.
The Signature Cocktail
Did you seriously think you could have an unforgettable weekend without a signature cocktail? Of course not. There is no bachelorette party without a Blushing Bride, and here is how you make her:
- 1 Bottle of Pink Rosé
- 1 Cup of Vodka
- ½ Cup of Triple Sec
- Garnish with strawberries or raspberries
Seriously, that’s it! You sure aren't going to have time to make anything more complicated than that, anyways. This drink tastes great and, depending on how much you spend on the Rosé, should be budget-friendly. Grab some celebratory cocktail napkins to make this next-level!
You’ll want to send the bride home with beautifully curated memories to share with her groom. What better way to do this than an instant camera? Stock up on film, because all the guests will want their picture with the bride to commemorate the weekend. Consider setting up a backdrop for added points. After all, when it comes to maid-of-honors, you’re the GOAT.
The weekend is over, and it’s time to head back to reality. So pack a Back-to-Reality Bag to help everyone recover:
- Band-Aids: for hard-earned blisters during the all-night dancing
- Lip Balm: for the poor dehydrated lips
- Mini Pack of Acetaminophen: for those pesky hangover headaches
- Single-Use Hydration Mix: for the liver
- Water Bottle: because no one drank enough water over the weekend
- Toothbrush: for that weekend bender breath
Okay, so this may be a little difficult with pocket-sized cameras in everyone’s hands, but go ahead and make a pact. Drunken shenanigans have no place on the interwebs. So say it with us: I will not post any bachelorette party images without group consent. Furthermore, I agree to delete any photo upon request.
We’ve all got jobs and futures to go back to, and Wastey-Casey on the toilet is not HR-approved, LMAO.
