Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! Today, I finally got to meet up with some of my bridesmaids to go over things for the wedding because 2 weeks from Monday we will officially be at the 5 month mark! From the start, I knew I didn’t want to be a bride who only met with her bridesmaids once or twice before the wedding. Instead, I wanted to plan many different fun activities that we could do all together! Not only is it fun to do different things with your girls before the wedding but it also gives the girls a chance to bond and get to know each other if they haven’t met the other girls before. So for today’s blog post, I thought I would share with all of you 5 fun activities to do that will help you and your bridesmaids to bond!
- Trip to the Zoo
Everyone who knows me knows I absolutely love animals and love to go to the Bronx zoo. This is why I immediately knew I wanted to go to the zoo with my bridesmaids before the wedding. Going to the zoo is a great activity because let’s face it, who doesn’t love cute animals! Some zoo’s also have rope courses and zip lines for additional costs that really can help your bridesmaids grow closer and rely on each other.
- Paint and Sip
Two Fridays ago I got to experience my first paint and sip and I absolutely loved it! It was so much fun and I knew instantly this was something I would love to do with my bridesmaids. It’s a great activity to do with your bridesmaids because not only do you get to drink wine, you also get to be creative and create a beautiful painting that you get to bring home with you. It’s even better if the person running the event allows you to create your own image for everyone to create because it makes it very personal to you and your girls.
- Amusement park
Going to an amusement park ensures a full day of thrilling rides, yummy food, playing games and just overall fun! This is a good bridesmaids activity because, similar to the zoo, it’s something fun you can go to as a group. Also, with all the crazy wedding planning going on, being able to scream on roller coasters is a perfect way to release that built up tension and stress.
- Beach getaway
Now this is actually the plan for my bachelorette party! Instead of just a one night party, turning your bachelorette party into a full weekend away with the girls lets you not only have more time to bond with your bridesmaids but also allows for a whole weekend away from all the crazy wedding stress. A beach getaway is especially nice because during the day you have the beach to relax, swim and tan and than once it’s later in the day, you have the boardwalk which consists of cute stores, fun amusement parks and of course, yummy food! There are also usually clubs nearby, depending on the beach, that allow you and your girls to go out, drink, let loose, and just have fun dancing!
So there you have it, 5 fun activities to do with your bridesmaids! Now I want to hear from you, if you are already married, what is a fun activity you did to bond with your girls? And if you aren’t married yet, what’s a fun bridesmaid bonding activity that you would want to do? Leave your answer below in the comments and as always, I hope you enjoyed what I had to say!
Until next time my darlings,
