You know, penis paraphernalia, booze until you can’t see straight, semi-suggestive scavenger hunt type games, suck-for-a-buck bouquet? Is your fiance/fiancee ok with it?
EDIT: thanks for eating my post, WB.

Haha no penis anything (I don’t think so anyways, it kind of grosses me out) but we are going to Vegas, getting tables and cabanas, and having a complete bender weekend. Kingy will be there with his boys that weekend too and we’re having a combined pool party on Sunday so yes, he’s totally fine with it! Less than 3 weeks- I’m so excited!

I wanted to go to the strip club, but my fiance hates strippers and told me I couldn’t. Which is kind of the reverse of a lot of couples, but I’ll deal with it.
We’re going to do a quieter weekend at the beach type thing, maybe with a night out and a night in. There will have to be penis paraphenalia, though. I LOVE penis paraphenalia. In college, I had a three foot long inflatable penis and would break it out at parties (ok, also just randomly sometimes after dinner) and we’d all hit each other over the head with it. He was named Roy and I will be highly disappointed if Roy v 2.0 does not make it to the bachelorette party.

Mine was yes, though I couldn’t drink due to I am pregnant.

Nope, not really my scene. Definitely still having a party though. 🙂

Definitely not my scene, but that’s hilarious! My MOH was kind enough to plan me just a girls’ getaway weekend of wine tasting and general relaxation. 🙂

No most likely not! Just something fun and simple, maybe dinner on a cruise followed by dancing, all wearing matching tanks or something. I’m not wild, and I really don’t like to disrespect my SO by acting too wild, ex: dancing with other men, strip clubs, etc. I just feel like I’m not even single anymore, so whats the deal?
Furthermore, I totally respect those who do plan on going buck wild, to each their own. It is just not something I am comfortable doing within our relationship!

Well, I didn’t have a “hen party” this time around but when I got married the first time, well, I not only had penis paraphenalia, I had the real thing:)
Let me give a little background: My friend Celia was getting married a few months before me and she had this crazy party at the Hyatt on Sunset Blvd. There was this stripper named Shane and he was the MUST have at any bachelorette party. He was super hot (naturally!) and for an extra fifty would take it ALL off. It was worth every penny. I have to say that, even given the cirumstances, he was very professional (no touching and he wouldn’t hook up with anyone either. Some girl tried of course. And no, it wasn’t me. lol It was some hussy in a mini-skirt. She cornered him in the bathroom while he was getting dressed.
So anyway, it’s my turn for my party and I book him. My MOH Debbie has heard about the legendary Shane for months and she’s dying to see his “show”. My girls have bought huge dildos, handcuffs, all kinds of stuff like that, kind of like party favors. Debbie has been drinking all night. And waiting. Finally Shane shows up and she’s passed out on the couch. No one can wake her for anything. So, he does his dirty dance and I’m handcuffed (I swear, I still don’t know how they managed that) with my hands behind my back and can’t move. I’m basically getting a lap dance. And kind of freaking because all I can do is turn my head-can’t move. lol
As Shane is leaving, he tucks his business card into my friend Debbie’s limp hand and when she finally wakes up and sees the card, she’s sooo bummed. We still talk about it. lol
Ah, good times. Really good times.

We did a pleasure party (so def. lots of penis paraphernalia), then we went out all night and boozed till I couldn’t see straight. So yes, definitley all of the above. We did a ‘Bride’s checklist’ that was a blast, but we didn’t obsess over doing it past the first hour of being out.
FI was okay with it. I never go out, and he wanted me to have a good time. I was really well behaved, but he still says ‘I don’t want to know!!’ 🙂

I definitely can’t handle my booze like I used to, so I’m kinda hoping for a more spa/yoga/wine tasting type experience. We also have Big Bang here in Columbus, which is an amazing dueling piano bar that gets pretty rowdy, so that’d be fun too. I love to dance, I love themes, but I hate hate hate hate hate being hungover. Hate. I think the girls who would plan this for me know me well enough to arrange a super fun night out no matter what, even if we have a sleepover with chick flicks.

@KristenGotMarried: I feel like I could have written that post.. haha, but substituting St Louis for Columbus!
We are going to the Big Bang dueling piano bar in downtown StL for my bachelorette party, but I asked my MOH if we could avoid the penis paraphenalia.. haha. But I do still want a little bachelorette sash 🙂 Once hitting grad school, my tolerance went down significantly, and I decided I was done with the whole puking in the morning/being hungover for the next 24 hours, so now I stop at the “tipsy” stage rather than going to the full on “drunk” stage.. haha. I figured a piano bar would be a good setting for this since you can still sit back & enjoy the music etc if you want to take a break from the booze, whereas at just a regular bar I feel like you’re kinda just sitting/standing around.
I’m super excited about it, though I wish all my bridesmaids could make it! But, with everyone being out of towners, there’s no way we were going to find a time where everyone could make it.. Having it the Thursday before the Saturday wedding seemed like the most ideal time so everyone who wanted to come could just come an extra day early rather than having to fly/drive in a separate weekend & spend even more money on travel. So far I think we’ve got a group of 8 or 9. Should be a good time!
