Watch out, Wairarapa!
Super-short blog post from me today but just thought I'd touch base to say my hen party starts tonight when one of my bridesmaids and my mum arrive ahead of a weekend full of... well, I don't really know what's going on.
My bridesmaids have been busy prepping for this weekend's festivities while trying to keep me out of the loop of all their little secrets. But I'm notoriously hard to surprise so I've been on to a few of their plans.
It's been pretty hard for me to let go of the control of this weekend. It's not that I don't trust the girls - they're my bridesmaids for a reason - but I am definitely in Team "If you want something done right, do it yourself". And the inner-Virgo in me wants to be in on all the list making and task delegation.
So far, all I know is I am being taken to the Wairarapa this weekend. There will be wine and wineries involved. There will be costumes - or a theme, which apparently my darling picked out for me/us.
Knowing that, I'm assuming it's something quite slutty but when I questioned him he rightly pointed out that his mum, aunt and nanas are going to be present and he doesn't exactly like the thought of them dressed up as ... er, sluts. Fair call.
I think most of all I'm really excited about having a bunch of amazing people to hang out with for what will, no doubt, be a riot of laughter and inappropriateness.
I've heard rumblings of a piñata (penis shaped? One can only hope), and the infamous game where my bridesmaids ask Beyonce a bunch of questions to work out how well we know each other (or not).
Speaking of him, he's on his stag do this weekend as well. When saying goodbye to each other today we were trying to work out what the etiquette is with contacting each other while at our respective parties.
Am I allowed to text him to ask if his eyebrows are still attached to his face? Can I send a cheeky pic of whatever outfit I get put in to? Do I have to give my phone over so I can't contact him?
What do you think? Should the couple be able to contact each other? Or do I just have to wait until Sunday to get the cut-down version of what happened the night before?
I'll attempt to post some pics on Twitter (follow me here) but failing that, my blog post on Monday may just be a pictorial one due to the size of my hangover (Think: the closing scenes of The Hangover, but with fewer monkeys, hookers, babies and tigers. I think).
