It seems most people want a pretty standard, run-of-the-mill, raucous bachelorette party. It seems most people want a seriously wild "Fling Before The Ring" with lots of clubbing and alltheshots. Most people aren't my sweet friend Adair. You see, a standard bachelorette drunkfest just isn't her style. I mean, it isn't my style either, but for different reasons...I'm the Heather Dubrow of the group, if you will...a little bit fancy pants and a whole lotta granny. Hey, at least I'm self-aware, right? Anyway, my friend Adair is a music-loving, band-tee-wearing, record-collecting, festival-going, cat-loving, flower-crown-sporting, quirky little ball of adorableness, and I'm certain she's living in the wrong decade. So for her bachelorette weekend, we needed to do something a little more creative and unusual than wearing matching black dresses and making Ed Hardy-tee-wearing beefcakes buy us shots. So, for this little hippie love of ours, we threw her a Coachella-themed bachelorette weekend in Myrtle Beach. "Bachella."
Brilliant, right? I so wish I could take credit for that genius idea. Alas, I cannot.
We had a great time, and she LOVED it. It was all very her. We had a teepee, tie dyed shirts, VIP passes, custom temporary tattoos, Bachella wrist bands. I mean, I think it was adorable, but I'm biased.
We had these cute little hangover bags with hair ties, ibuprofen, Band Aids, and temporary tattoos that said something like "I'm with Adair's Bachella. I'm lost. Buy me a drink." Adorable.
I think we all still have like nine of these bracelets. I'm obsessed with them.
We wore VIP passes the last night we went out.
Oh and we also had tie dye tshirts to wear out. And flower crowns.
And lots of lots of alcohol, which, if I'm being honest, wasn't even really touched. I mean, a little bit, but not much. I'm telling you. Grannies.
The bride got a headdress with a feather and a tie dye Bachella sash.
And there was a teepee.
Harry Styles came too.
Instead of doing a lingerie shower, we gave her a bunch of fun presents. Lots of pjs and Coachella-like tshirts and goodies. I had my weirdly talented brother paint Coachella for her, and I think it turned out fabulously. I can barely write legibly and he can paint like this. Doesn't seem fair.
We had a blast. I loved the whole weekend and so did she, which is obviously the most important part.
Oh, and our big night out? We ended up at a bar with a bunch of old people. I think the youngest people there were like 60. And they were all dancing with us. And there was a band. It was SO MUCH FUN.
Anyway, that's bachella! We had so much fun :)
