    When was/is your bparty? This Saturday/Sunday!
    What are you doing/did you do? As far as I know, dinner at Melting Pot, passion party and games/drinks at my BM's place. Apparently there are a few surprises.
    When was/is FI's bparty? His is this Saturday/Sunday also.
    What is he doing / did he do? They're playing paintball, and then spending the night in AC, gambling, comedy club, bar hopping.
    How involved were you with the planning? Not very much so at all. I gave some guidlines and my sister/MOH and BM rolled with it.
    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? We're aware of eachother's plans. We're actually having a "rebuttal" dinner out on Sunday night to talk about the festitives. I think it'll be a nice way to wrap up the weekend and share our funny and/or embarassing stories.

    The shower was the day before so my girls spent the night and we made it a girls' weekend!
    Have fun with your's this weekend!!!!

  • When was/is your bparty? mine was July 17th
    What are you doing/did you do? We had my shower. Then a limo came and took us into Boston and we went to the Liquor Store...we ended up staying there the whole night then came back to my parents. Slept woke up and layed by the pool all morning.
    When was/is FI's bparty? The weekend after mine
    What is he doing / did he do? He went to Atlantic City for 3 days and 2 nights, they also took a limo to Philly for a baseball game.
    How involved were you with the planning? I wasn't.
    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? I knew what FI was doing, FI knew what I was doing. But we didnt know what we were doing. I was really nervous about his. And after somethings that happened this past weekend. I'm not wondering if I got the whole truth about things that went down. We can say my trust isn't there right about now.

    What is he doing / did he do?  Went fishing in Mexico

    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations?
      Yep.  We knew.  Only stipulation was no cheating. (Obviously)

    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations?
    Yes we know of plans, no stips for me but I asked for no strippers/stripclub for him-with the party bus I don't know if this will hold true.  I think I will be okay with that as long as there is no touching~lookie lookie only.  I asked my girls for no male anatomy parts blown up or straws or suck for a buck t-shirt-not 20something anymore.

    When was/is your bparty? Don't think I'm having one since I won't have all my bridesmaids here until just hours before the rehearsal Friday night and FI and I said no parties the night before the wedding.
    What are you doing/did you do? See above.
    When was/is FI's bparty? His is the Thursday before the wedding.
    What is he doing / did he do? They're going to go out to dinner (at the restaurant we went to on our first date), go play laser tag, then go back to our apartment to play strategy games and hang out. I'm dropping off a cake for them to munch on as a surprise (checked with the BM already about it) since we're not doing a groom's cake.
    How involved were you with the planning? If there ends up being one, not at all!
    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? I know his at least. Only stipulation was we wouldn't do anything the night before (Friday night) since we have to be up early Saturday! (And of course no strip clubs, etc. but for us that's understood.)

    Finally Married!

    I love my puppy ... and my husband, I swear!
  • When was/is your bparty? Sat. July 31st

    What are you doing/did you do? Me and my best girls got a hotel room & limo in DC. Did a nice dinner out, then went to a...show.... then went out to some dance clubs and bars in the district!

    When was/is FI's bparty? This weekend!

    What is he doing / did he do? Good lord, who knows. Give me a man who plans and I will give him a million bucks. At least in this crowd. They are coming in town Friday and Saturday, then Saturday I'm sure somehow they will be going into DC drunkenly exploring the strip clubs and bars there.

    How involved were you with the planning? I wasn't involved at all with the planning of either. My amazing coworker and friend planned mine and basically just asked me: is this ok, is that ok? And I said, sure sure!

    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? We both knew/know about each other's plans. We're young and crazy, and so are our friends, so we just said have fun! We both did said we'd rather have the other go out to a strip club, than have one at the house or hotel, and that has worked out just fine! It means nothing, it's all in good fun!

  • When was/is your bparty? If it's not Labor Day weekend I'm not having one

    What are you doing/did you do? No idea

     When was/is FI's bparty? Last weekend

    What is he doing / did he do? Camping in the woods

    How involved were you with the planning? Not at all

    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? He was in VERY backwoods Pennsylvania... I told him if they went anywhere with strippers he had to take pictures... because I want to see what the strippers look like in backwoods PA.  And of course, no driving buzzed and no setting anything on fire.

  • When was/is your bparty? I had one in May when I was back east visiting family (majourity of my bridal party lives in Montreal) and I am having a local one here (in Banff) this weekend!
    What are you doing/did you do? The one back east we had drinks and a little party at my parents house then we all went out to a club that was playing 80's music and danced the night away it was THE BEST.  and I can't wait to see what this saturday entails!
    When was/is FI's bparty?  just this past May Long weekend
    What is he doing / did he do? We had a few friends also getting married this year so they did a joint Stag party and all went down to Vegas
    How involved were you with the planning? Only told them when i was available and that there were to be NO giant penises (peni? don't know the plural of penis) or anything too ridiculous.  I see those parties walking down Banff ave and find them obnoxious.  I would honestly prefer a weekend of camping with my girls but that's hard to do and I can't really ask them to do that.
    Do you & FI know about each other's plans and were there any stipulations?  I knew he was going to Vegas because we had to get our passports renewed!  and he didn't really want to go so i heard alot of complaining. No stipulations just know babies or tigers in his hotel room!

  • When was/is your bparty? It was Aug 4-7th and Aug 21st

    What are you doing/did you do? We went to Vegas the beginning of August, then we had a local b-party after my shower last Saturday.  Local was just a bar downtown.  Was super-lame.  I think we partied it all out in Vegas.

    When was/is FI's bparty? His is Sept 2-5

    What is he doing / did he do? He's going to Vegas too, eek

    How involved were you with the planning? I had no idea about either of mine, everything was a surprise except flight times.

    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? We both knew.  He was upset b/c I knew nothing of what we were doing in Vegas.  Once I came back and saw how some bachelor parties were acting out there, I gave him some ground rules.  Andplusalso, I told him no bottle service at the club.  The minimum was $1000 and I put the smackdown after trying to be frugal w/ wedding planning and my own Vegas trip.

  • wow, you girls sure have some elaborate and fun parties!

    When was/is your bparty? i had a mini one back in may before i moved from CA that my friend out there threw me. my east coast party fell apart at the seams.  which is fine with me, at this point rather than drinking and going crazy i would rather just lay on the beach and read a good book!

    When was/is FI's bparty? didnt have one poor guy :( he went camping on a boat one night in CA with two friends and they pretended it was his B party
    What is he doing / did he do? all he wanted was to drink and play golf.  his friends never got their acts together.
    How involved were you with the planning? i tried to help and gave my input for CA.  for east coast i did a little more organizing before i gave up.
    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations? he knew about mine.  no stipulations.  we are pretty trusting and neither of us are too crazy (aka no strippers would ever be involved).  my biggest fear for gerren's is that he would get too drunk and owuld get sick.

  • When was/is your bparty?  August 13-15

    What are you doing/did you do?  Went to the beach with a bunch of girls

    When was/is FI's bparty?  Same weekend

    What is he doing / did he do?  Went to AC with the guys

    How involved were you with the planning?  They asked where we each wanted to go and that was it.

    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations?  Yep.  He knew I was going out drinking and dancing and laying on the beach all day.  I knew he was going to gamble and go to bars.  I guess the only "stipulation" we had was no strippers in the hotel room.  They did go to a strip club, and the 8 or 9 of them had a table dance.  Then they left. FI did win $500 on blackjack though so I was supppppppper excited!!!!!

  • When was/is your bparty?  it was this past weekend
    What are you doing/did you do?  we decorated pottery, did a nice hibachi dinner and then went down to AC for the bars and dancing
    When was/is FI's bparty?  his was august 14
    What is he doing / did he do? he went paintballing, rockband and beer
    How involved were you with the planning?  Of mine, completely because my girls couldnt make a decision.  Of FI's, I knew what his brother's plans were and I knew what his friends wanted to do...so not much
    Do you & FI know about eachother's plans and were there any stipulations?  We knew each others plans.  My only stipulation to FI was to not let him or his friends trash the house (they wanted to use his rockband and our house and FI's brother didnt even ask if it was ok).  They were pretty good...apparently they played quarters with poker chips and dented the coffee table in our basement and FI didnt drink enough fluids while playing paintball and got dehydrated and threw up but good other wise.  He told me nothing, just to have fun and I did. 

    To those who have yet to have theirs:  Be careful of dares...my girls were all over them.  hugging guys, grabbing their butts, dancing with them...etc.

  • Hahaha I am such a grandma, and my friend is not, so she said, your "last night out as a single woman" is not going to be grandma, it's going to be young and fun! And it was actually fun because it was totally not something I would've planned or picked if it had been up to me! I had a BALL. I felt like I was acting my age (23 not 45) for the first time in a long time!

    I was this girl.... hahaha.... after a few drinks out in the sun during the day, we started chest bumping people, jumping on their rafts, I went up to a sunburned guy and sprayed my initials on his stomach in sunscreen....everyone was having a blast and the people we did them to thought it was hilarious.  At the end, a guy walked up with a serious issue in his pants, and i said "is that a boner or are you just happy to see me?" and my MOH spit her beer about 10 feet.

    For reals! It was not a good two weeks after that while everything was healing... I'm over it now and moving on. He was tied to a chair and they did all that to him. I gave his BM and GM's a good talking to about how nobody stopped it. Oh Well.
