I feel it is my obligation to warned all you brides out there that if you know your friends are planning a bachelorette party for you do it way in advance of your wedding and here is my reason why.
I had my bachelorette Party this last Saturday exactly two weeks before my wedding, had a blast but before the night was over I fell and twisted my ankle, so I thought.
Since the swelling did not go away by Monday and I could not even put any pressure (not even to drive) on the foot I decided to go to the ER well what do you know it’s BROKEN!!!! Yes BROKEN two weeks before the wedding!!!
Talked to the specialist and he said there is slight chance of me walking with one crutch by the wedding with therapy and no cast.
So I am crossing my fingers and trying working very hard on getting better so I can walk down the aisle with out either crutch.
On a happy note I am able to put some pressure on it today, but please avoid the heart ache and stress I have right now and do yours way in advance.

Unfortunately, all of our wedding party is out of state or out of town, so we have to do it pretty close to the wedding so people don’t have to fly out twice. But I’ll be extra careful!

Ugh, get well soon! I had a friend whose husband had his bachelor party the night before the rehearsal dinner, and he fell on his face, had a big gash and had to wear makeup at the wedding!!

Also — avoid trampolines!
It wasn’t a bachelorette party but just a group of us (guys and girls) rented a cabin 3 months before the wedding of two of the friends. The bride, along with the rest of us, was jumping on the trampoline when "bam" she popped out her knee! We had to rush her to the ER and found out that she tore a bunch of ligaments. With a LOT of PT she was able to "walk" aka hobble down the aisle with her dad and have her first dance with her husband, bu after that she was on crutches for the rest of the night. She did it with a smile and it did make her day special and memorable.
I’m sorry about your foot! Good luck and we’ll all be thinking good thoughts for you!

Well, that could happen even if you had your bachelorette party months in advance. I mean, it could have happened if you’d slipped on stairs, tripped over a dog or something else.
On the bright side, I’d much rather have a cast on my foot than my arm (or a neck brace!!!) on my wedding day. Just a little perspective.
