{Wedding} Bachelorette

 photo ourwedding_zps0d13643a.jpg
At the end of the Kitchen Tea, the moms, aunts and family left and we entered into the Bachelorette Part of the festivities. The theme for the Bachelorette: Mardi Gras and Kerry-le-maid-of-honour had gotten in one of her local artist friends Shana to paint our faces Mardi Gras style -

We popped open some wine and all the girls had their faces painted.
Then my lovely bridesmaids and friends gave me my outfit for the night -

That small little thing in Kerry's hand?
That's the entire top half of my outfit.
To go out in.
In public.

Once the girls had had their faces painted we were dropped off on Florida Road for some cocktails. After a cocktail or two (and a shooter, maybe) we made our way back to Kerry's house where they had filled her apartment with all things Mardi Gras -

We played some {very tricky} bachelorette games, noshed some delicious hot-dogs with toppings extraordinaire, champers, wine, a chocolate or two, with a bottle of strawberry flavoured shooters thrown in for good measure. Then headed out on the town -

In our old age - it's been an extremely long time since we've all headed "out on the town" like this - So we totally maxed it out - We drank, we partied, we danced, we laughed, we sang at the top of our lungs. I took my shoes off and woke up with stiff abs from doing bicycle crunches in da club. Yeah. bicycle crunches. Well done, drunk self. Well done.

And that, my friends, is how you get a 2 day hangover.

Hahaha - amazing. So sad I missed it.

P.S. If you have a body like that, you should be embarrassed if you DON'T go out half-neked.

P.P.S. Now just imagine... if we had that night in Hongdae... Hey? I know. Toothpaste drinks and strawberry daquiris all round!

Che Kershaw said...

hahaha Hongdae bachelorette. THAT would have been EPIC.

equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.

I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.
