Planning to have a co-ed bachelor(ette) party, but aren’t sure what kind of party will appeal to both sexes? Consider one of these fun ideas:
- Wine Tasting. If your group of friends enjoys a great glass of vino, arrange a tour and tasting at a local winery or a weekend trip to a nearby city or area known for its wineries and sample a few. Make sure to arrange transportation for everyone beforehand, so guests can enjoy the tasting without worrying about how to get home later.
- Film Festival. Have a group of movie buffs? Attend a local film festival or plan a night out at the local drive in or in someone’s backyard and screen your favorite movies
I’m not going to lie to you, I love myself a girly ruffle. And it seems to me that there is no better time for pulling out the pretty than right around your wedding. Whether you’re adding a ruffled necklace to your shower outfit, decking your bridesmaids out in these killer peony dresses from Quail Bridal or adding a ruffle-y heel to your wedding dress, it’s a feminine way to let the world know here comes the bride.

There’s a pretty good chance that if you’re involved with a wedding you’re going to be heading to either a shower or bachelorette party where you’ll need to bring a lingerie gift. And while we’re all for a cute negligee, these undies from Mahoohoo have the advantage of being very wearable and totally different. They’re a little bit rock-n-roll tempered with a touch of sweetness (check out the ruffles on her punk pair below!).
So your friends are throwing you a lovely shower in the afternoon and then taking you out on the town for your bachelorette party and the big question is – What in the world are you going to wear? The two events couldn’t be more different – your shower calls for something a bit softer and sweeter while a night out on the town means pulling out the sexy and fun.
We found this rockin’ dress from one of our favorite online stores ModCloth, which makes the transition impeccably (and is only $52.99 to boot!) when paired with black tights and changing accessories.
