Which is fine because we have a group of 20 girls (well 19 girls + Tonii) who are going to have a blast no matter what. I am so excited- we're staying at the Tropicana which is right on the beach and has tons of bars and restaurants inside of it so we never have to leave (can you imagine the nightmare of taxiing 20 girls across town?).
Anyway, onto the conundrum.
Me: Ok absolutely no tiaras, no sashes, no penises, nothing cheesy. I refuse.
Friends: Yeah we hate all that too.
Me: Ok good
Friends: Wait nothing else for bachelorette parties exists outside of penises, tiaras, and sashes.
We have encountered this problem in looking at all kinds of wedding things- not only do I despise tiaras and sashes, but pink makes me want to throw up as do all things cheesy such as the phrase "fling before the ring!" and shirts that say "Future Mrs. _____" on the back. I just can't. It's fine for other people and I'll have a great time participating in this stuff, but it's not me at all.
However, since this wedding is costing approximately a million dollars, and half the crowd is flying to get to the party I DO want random people to buy us stuff. But how would they know we were a bach party unless I was wearing a penis on my head or a tiara?
Not ones to complain without a solution, my friend Maggie and I decided we should start an Etsy Shop called "Bridal Sh*t" with the tagline not your basic wedding supplies or something along those lines. It would include classic girly wedding stuff but with a twist that everyone can appreciate (and sorry but no pink). And of course anything Beyonce because, Beyonce.
This sash, designed by moi in Picmonkey, would likely be the first product:
I'm also thinking along the lines of a baby shower my brother and his friends went to that involved playing "pin the mustache on the baby" and beer chugging contests out of baby bottles (by the guests, not the baby's mother). So how can I take ideas like that and turn them into bridal ideas?
Any ideas for our new Etsy store?
