Being a bride brings on a lot of stress to make sure your big day is perfect! Not only are you trying to plan everything so your guests are happy for the whole wedding, but you also need to keep up with your normal life. That includes your social life!
You can’t just leave your besties out to dry; they have been keeping you sane throughout this whole journey. Carve out a day to show them your appreciation and do something you all would enjoy. Here are 7 activities that you can do with your girls to show them the love:
1. Slumber Party
Slumber parties are a chance for you and your besties to have your girl talk, pig out on whatever snacks you want, have a movie marathon, and give each other mani/pedis! You will feel like a teenager again but with the added bonus of not worrying that your little brother will barge in. Take advantage of this opportunity because you might not get the chance again after you start your new life with your groom. If you have to be up early the next day you can still do all of these activities but not have them sleep over.
2. A BYOB Painting Class
A bottle of your favorite alcohol plus painting with your besties while they have their own bottles, how can that not be fun? One of them is bound to be hilarious when they get tipsy, just make sure you all have a safe way of getting home afterwards! Who knows, maybe one of you will scream at a painting? No matter what, you should feel loose and stress-free after this.
3. Spa Day
Need I say more? Massages, manicures, pedicures, facials, maybe a sauna, and a healthy lunch. Yes please! Reserving a private space would be perfect for you and your girls to enjoy a nice relaxing day together.
4. A Yoga Session
You can arrange to do yoga on the beach, in a park, or even in a yoga studio room. This allows you to get your workout done while spending quality time with your besties. Yoga helps you destress and clear your mind. If yoga isn’t your thing, you could look into pilates or even zumba!
With this option, you can have the scenery be whatever you want. All you need is a day with good weather and you can enjoy the picnic at the beach, in a park, or even your backyard. Each person can make a sandwich how they like it, have snacks for everyone to enjoy, and you can decide if there will be alcohol or not. Enjoy connecting with your friends without technology and really catch up with one another. Preparing the picnic all together could be a fun activity to do as well.
An active way to have some friendly competition. You all could do a free for all against each other or find a group of people to go against for a “team deathmatch”. In a team deathmatch you and your friends will need to work together to beat the other team. Beware, you could ruin the outfit you wear so choose clothes you don’t care to have splattered in paint.
7. A Cooking Class
Find one that you and your friends can do as a group. You may need to schedule your own class for your group. All of you will have fun cooking together, maybe drink a little, and eat some delicious food you all made. Maybe you will learn a skill in the kitchen to impress your soon-to-be husband!
Whatever activity you all decide to do together, focus on your communication. Choose an activity that will fit you and your group of friends and have those heart-to-hearts. You will soon start your new life as a wife, but that doesn’t mean your friends are not important and special to you.
