The first bachelorette party I've ever been to was this summer - and I had to help plan it! With no experience, it required quite a bit of research. The party was for my husband's sister, therefore my mother-in-law was going to be there and I needed to keep it clean.

I'll spare you all the boring details of the weeks spent planning and just tell you - it turned out awesome, everyone had fun. Don't ask what's in our pink cups, you already know the answer.

We played 4 games with prizes awarded for each:

1.) the bride filled out a questionnaire about the groom and the ladies had to guess how many questions the bride would get wrong while the bride stuffed a marshmallow in her mouth for each wrong answer, 2.) guests had to see how well they knew the bride by filling out a questionnaire, 3.) the purse game where you dump the contents of someone's purse on the table and the ladies have two minutes to look at everything before it gets put away, then two minutes to write down and recall everything they just saw, 4.) and Pin The Junk On The Hunk - it sounds rated X but you can keep it clean by pinning paper cut-outs on the poster of junk such as a TV remote control, tools, beer can, etc. It's based on Pin The Tail On The Donkey where the person wears a blindfold and is spun around 3 times. After a few drinks and spins this game is harder than it seems to pin the junk near the hunk's heart [see poster photo].

To top off our evening we took a ride with Snow Pond Cruises out of Oakland. This was the party highlight. We indulged on the drinks and desserts we brought while Captain Gary gave us some history about Messalonskee Lake. I highly recommend taking a cruise on the Snowdrifter II for any gathering you have with a group of 12 or fewer.

Overall, the bachelorette party was a success and I know if I can do it - you can do it!
