My sister wants a paintball bachelorette party- I’m excited because it is very her and it will be fun and different. That being said, I am a girly girl who has never been paintballing in my life! My sister specifically said no shirts for the girls, but I still want to get all the girls who attend something. How do I make a paintball bachelorette party even more awesome? Team bride buttons? Get a cheap sash/veil for my sister to wear knowing it will be completely ruined? Favor bags with hand lotions or candles or lip gloss? For food my sister wants to get sandwiches and said I shouldn’t get a cake, but maybe cookies would be okay?

I’ve never been paintballing, but I know I’ve seen pictures of people in paintball gear wearing team bandanas around their arms or foreheads…maybe you could get something like that?

I’ve never been paintballing before either (I want to though) and I think the bandanas sound cute or you could offer them all plain white shirts and then take before (with white shirts) and after (with paint splattered) pictures for them to keep. If you wanted to do the Team Bride thing maybe you could make/buy really cheap garters for people to wear as an armband or outside their pants for a funny quasi military look.

There’s an awesome picture somewhere on Pinterest of a bunch of girls paintballing in ugly bridesmaid dresses and wedding gowns–like, ones you could get at the thrift store for $10. Don’t know if it’s even close to your thing, but I always thought it was hilarious.

Sounds like fun only suggestion don’t do this right before the wedding. Bruises and welts hurt if you don’t wear proper protection.
I second the bandanas really cute and not everyone thinks about covers their hair.

You will get bruised and it WILL hurt! Do it far enough in advance of the wedding so you and the girls have time to recover. You can get sashes or tutus or old dresses or something for the girls to wear, that would be so cute!

oh goodness- yes please do this early on. paintball bruises suck. they bust so many bloodvessles you didnt even know existed & hurt like hell. fingers crossed you dont take one to the neck! Fiance played paintball semi-pro for a few years. ive seen some gnarly injuries, so plan ahead!
they make du-rags for paintballing. you could get those embroidered… but they would likely never wear them again. maybe beanies or hats? covering the hair is smart- esp if you have any blondes. and getting hit in the top of the head sucks. any protection helps!!
