I don't know if this is typical, but I have my future bachelorette party planned out way more than my hypothetical wedding. I got to the "I Thee Dread" article too late to make any comment that would be seen by anybody, so I wanted to start a conversation over here! What is your dream bachelorette (or bachelor) party? Or if you've already had one, tell me about it. Or the best one you've ever been to!
As for mine, my parents recently moved from a fairly boring (but very nice to grow up in) suburban house in the Twin Cities to a GORGEOUS house about an hour out of the cities. They call it the bed and breakfast because now all of our relatives out in Chicago want to come visit and they're always hosting people. My brother and I have also convinced them to get a hot tub sometime in the near future. So it's basically the perfect party house (and I know my parents would totally be willing to stay in a hotel for the weekend and let me use it). My dream party would be to have a joint bachelor/bachelorette weekend getaway where everybody flies in on a Friday night, gets totally wasted, hangs out in the hot tub, runs around the house naked. Whatever. All of our wildest college parties all rolled into one. Then the next day we all have a nice brunch in and chill. And that night we can split up into bachelor/bachelorette and if somebody in my wedding party wants to plan that part, they're welcome to. But the general "partying at my parents' awesome house in the woods with all of our mutual friends" theme is non-negotiable.
