The Bachelorette Fete - Part II: Labels AND Love

Thursday, May 13, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for the next Sex and The City movie installment. I don’t think any other series celebrates the relationships of girlfriends better than Sex and The City. There is usually a little part of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte in each of us, which makes it so totally relatable.

The girls in SATC shared life’s ups and downs, the dating disasters and delights, and were there to cheer each other on and celebrate their successes and triumphs, just like I’m sure you do with your gal-pals. So why not celebrate one of life’s best experiences, your marriage, with your girlfriends, by making your bachelorette party a Sex and The City themed party?!

My ideal night would go something like this: Ask all the girls to channel their favorite character from the series. Start by donning a fabulous dress (Dior is to die for) and killer shoes (Manolo’s anyone?). Invite everyone over to a central meeting place and start your night with the cocktail of choice, a Cosmopolitan of course. With your theatre tickets purchased ahead of time, head over to the movie theater to screen Sex and The City 2 with the ladies. Nothing is more New York than a late supper after the movie, so take the girls out for a nosh and maybe another cocktail or two.

Afraid your best girls will have already seen the movie by the time the bachelorette party rolls around? No problem! Anytime the SATC girls had something to celebrate, you could be sure there was a Cosmo or champagne around, so start your evening with a little cocktail party at home to get things going. Maybe you have a little raw food (think the restaurant Samantha first met Smith in) or some Chinese (a la Miranda calling the same Chinese restaurant for take out). Once all the girls are assembled, you could head out for a night on the town! Or, keep the party at home with a SATC DVD marathon and have a little slumber party.

To wrap up the fete, nothing seems more apropos than a brunch the following morning to dish about the night before and the fun you’ve had together.

Whatever you decide, enjoy this time with your best girls and above all, just be fabulous!
