Hmmm and hmmm. B-party is this weekend, and I can’t decide how “bridely” I should be. I already told my Maid/Matron of Honor that I don’t want the veil and the sash and all that, because, well, I tend to get very sarcastic and angry when random strangers feel the need to share their opinion on marriage … I’ve been to one too many bachelorette parties where random dudes at the bar say things to the bride like “Are you sure you want to get married? It’s not too late you know!” I know that I would respond badly to such idiocy (“gee, thanks random guy in the bar, YOU ARE RIGHT! I don’t want to marry this guy — I’m still so young and attractive! Let’s go to the bathroom and bang it out, you f***ing idiot!”), so I don’t want to invite it by being the most obvious bachelorette party in the world.
But at the same time, I know myself well enough to worry that once I’m there, if I’m just dressed in totally normal clothes I might feel bad that it’s not obvious that I’m the bride. I’ll wish it was somehow apparent that this party is in my honor! So I’m wondering if there’s some good way to strike a balance. Either with one of those bride tank tops from Victoria’s Secret, or something like that. I’ve also got a custom white zip-up hoodie for the day of the wedding (it says “I’m the bride, bitch! on the back), but that might be too much. I just don’t know!!!
What did you/are you planning on wearing for your bachelorette party? Did you do the veil and sash and all that, and if so, did people make irritating comments? If you just wore normal clothes, did you regret not standing out more??

I wouldn’t mind wearing a sexy dress with a sash and maybe tiara, but that’s about it!

I feel like your friends will make it known either way, and random jerks will be random jerks if they figure out you are the bride – it won’t matter if it is because a sash vs. a “bride” tank top. In my opinion, bachelorette parties are a good time to be over the top and ridiculous, so go for it! I like @Pearberry:‘s suggestion of a tiara too 🙂
As for the jerky guys, if you think it is def going to happen, I’d make a game out of it! Maybe print out some “tickets” to give to offenders, i.e. “Citation – Being a Predictable Asshole” hehe. To make it more of a game, have everyone take bets on how many uyou’ll hand out over the course of the night 🙂

I wore a tiara and a cute dress. The dumb comments are unavoidable because guys will figure out you are the bachelorette (mostly thanks to your friends saying “shes getting maaaarriiiieeed”). We went out three nights and I only wore the tiara one night. I honestly wish I wore it out more and I sort of have the same sarastic attitude towards these kinds of things.

@sarahbabs: Haha that’s an awesome idea!!! If I make a game of it, I’m less likely to get stabby 😉

@LGenz: Haha that’s exactly what I’m afraid of — that I’ll insist I don’t want any of that stuff, but then while we’re our bar-hopping I’ll be like “WHY DIDN’T ANYONE BUY ME A TIARA??? WORST FRIENDS EVER!”
Might just have to go all out after all!

I wore a sash, a “Team Bride” button, and a ring that lit up. It wasn’t overkill, but it let me have my bachelorette fun. 🙂

@PinkFlemingo: Haha that’s so funny, I literally would reply with the EXACT SAME COMMENT. But I enjoy yelling such things at losers in bars so for that very reason I’d wear it all, LOL.

@PinkFlemingo: LOL, less stabby is prob better 😉 I also think it would be hilarious to watch their reactions to getting ticketed.
