- Wedding: August 2010
My bridesmaid in charge of my bachelorette party had said to me last week the theme will be “80’s.” I’d never heard of a bachelorette party with a theme so I thought this would be interesting. (We grew up in the 80’s). She said I could wear what I want but that if I felt like teasing my hair “retro” style I could. So the plan is for this Saturday I’m supposed to pick out a restaurant to eat at, and then we go to NYC for a surprise (rumor is an 80’s club, but it’s all a surprise.)
I know these ladies and that they won’t go all out with any kind of 80’s appearance, if they do it at all Saturday. I don’t think they’re going to dress up. But today I decided I AM GOING TO, and to the EXTREME! I found this lady on craigslist who practically has a boutique in her home of vintage, especially of 80’s. Spoke to her about an hour ago on the phone. So now I am going tomorrow and am going to get a full-out 80’s outfit (including jewelry, makeup, shoes, pocketbook, you name it). And I’m going to tease my hair to the ceiling (I’ve got a lot of hair). Anyway everyone’s going to be SO shocked on Saturday. lol. I’m going to look like a FREAK! lol
This is HUGE for me b/c I’m usually too shy to do this sort of thing. First I thought maybe I shouldn’t b/c people will be staring at me while we’re out but now I’m like, screw it.
A huge reason this is smart is b/c I had kicked out a bitch bridesmaid (if you read a couple of my posts on “fight with a bridesmaid” you know “Jennifer”), and I’ve been concerned one (“Brenda”) who is somewhat close to her might be asking me questions. I haven’t seen/talked to Brenda since I kicked Jennifer out and Brenda only heard it thru the grapevine. I don’t know if she’ll be mad or ok or what. We haven’t talked about it and so I know it’s possible Brenda would bring it up Saturday b/c the only next time I see her will be the wedding. My plan had been to tell her I don’t want to talk about it and just enjoy the party. But now I’m ensuring it. There is no way she or anyone is going to ask “drama” questions or take me seriously with me looking like freakin Madonna/Cyndi Lauper dancing around. 😉 I won’t even give her the chance.
I am SO excited! Wish me luck!!!
