Most of us ladies have been dragged on the usual bachelorette party at some point in our lives. You know the type: get on a bus, go to a bunch of bars, get as drunk as humanly possible, go home, wake up, look for dignity, promise yourself you will never drink again.
Somewhere along the line, bachelorette parties designed to celebrate a girl’s impending nuptials have transformed into raucous, glorified bachelor parties complete with strippers, shot pounding and embarrassing morning afters. Well, ladies, it is time to take stock, pick up our dignity and put some class and fun back into bachelorette bashes. This guide will give you some creative, outside-the-box ideas, and a few spins on the old classic.—Julie Lay, Special to Metromix.
