- Wedding: November 2013
So, my fiancee and I decided to go to Vegas for our bachelor/bachelorette parties. We live pretty far away and had to fly about 5 hours to get there.
To my surprise almost all of my bridesmaids came. So did my mother, with a friend of hers.
When planning, my Maid/Matron of Honor asked me what I wanted to do while in Vegas. I am a pretty conservative person and I don’t enjoy strip clubs, especially since my mother was going to be with us. I also don’t like being pulled up on stage or being the center of attention.
I told my Maid/Matron of Honor that I wanted to go see a magic show and do some drinking for my bachelorette party but if she wanted to, we could go to a strip club, but I didn’t want to be pulled on stage or anything like that. (she’s kind of a wild one, so I knew she was pushing for a strip club, and I didn’t really care as long as I didn’t get attention from the dancers)
What I was really hoping for was a limo or party bus to drive us around the strip so we could drink and bar hop in style. I never told any of my BMs about that idea because I knew they were already spending a lot of money to come out to vegas in the first place. I felt so happy and lucky to have so many friends that would travel that far for me.
Well, fast forward to my bachelorette night…I find out that we are going to a strip club. Then I finally get the name of the club. I did a quick google search in my hotel room about 20 minutes before we left….it was a FULL NUDITY strip joint pretty far off the strip. I read nothing but bad reviews about this place.
Now I’m worried. I don’t even want to go to a strip club let alone one where I would have to see full nudity! I thought for sure we were going to see ‘Thunder Down Under’
I tried to suck it up and I thought..’It’ll be alright.’ Well..long story short. It wasn’t alright. We drove pretty far from the strip, to the middle of nowhere. Walked inside this very small run down place. Sat pretty close to the stage. I was pretty miserable at this point, but kept pushing through it because I knew my BM’s planned it for me. Got a couple drinks..and waited for the show to start. An announcer got on stage and was asking where the birthday girls were…then asked where the bride to be was. Without missing a beat, one of my BM’s said ‘Me!’ Thank God for her.
So finally the first dancer came out…within 2 minutes (tops) he was in his underwear. Came over to my Bridesmaid or Best Man (pretending to be the bride) and started grinding all over her and spilled my drink all over my Maid/Matron of Honor.
Then he went back on stage took his underwear off. Ugh…this was so embarrasing. My mom was like ‘OH MY GOD’ (she had no idea this was a full nudity strip club) Here’s the kicker….he then took out a pineapple, put whipped cream in a hole that was already carved out…and then put his penis in the pineapple. He continued to have sex with the pineapple on stage….that was it.
I stood up and said I’m leaving. I went to the bar to get my last free drink. 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man and my mom followed me. My mom tried to convince me to stay. I told her to leave me alone. My mom and one Bridesmaid or Best Man went back to the table and I walked out. One Bridesmaid or Best Man followed me across the street to some random casino where I tried to get a cab back to the strip. The bar tender told me ‘Well you can try, but cabs don’t hang out here, they don’t like the neighborhood’
WONDERFUL. so now I’m stranded, alone and really really upset. Finally made it back to the strip by sharing a cab with some random dudes. Those guys paid for the cab, then bought me and my Bridesmaid or Best Man a drink at the bar. Those two random dudes treated me better that night than anyone else. All the other BM’s, Maid/Matron of Honor and mother stayed at the club and watched the rest of the show.
MY night turned into THEIR night. As I’m writing this now, I’m shaking because I’m so upset and angry about the whole situation.
I have no idea what I should do now. Am I overreacting?? Should I be pissed? I don’t even want to talk to my mother, Maid/Matron of Honor or other bridesmaids.
My poor fiance was in the hotel room when I came back from my night and I was crying hysterically (I had been drinking, so I was more emotional than usual because i NEVER cry…) I was so upset that he thought I had been raped or injuried in some way.
Sorry this is so long, but some advice would be helpful. I know i need to tell them how upset I am but I have no idea how to even begin telling them or if I’m just overreacting.
Thanks in advance.
