The 'Stagette' is a tradition where the gals get together and half a girls night only,
usually a week prior to the wedding.
I hosted a luncheon and spa appointment at the Harrison, one day prior to the stag.
The attendants were fanning the Bride...trying to keep things cool.
You never know what those two are up to.....the ones fanning.
Brandi chose to be the 'Skipper' for the day!
Brandi is known for planning events filled with unexpected surprises.
Meanwhile at home...these two attendants kept planning the Stagette.
They found an old wedding gown...made to measure.
They packed it in a vintage style suitcase...and they all jumped aboard the pickup.
The half ton was packed to the brim...all this for one night?
They are off to have fun...Next stop...Pick up the Bride.
She's off to Manning Park to go fishing, her favorite camping spot.
She made heads turn when she was young,
and today...she was making headlines again!
And she leaps...and she survives.
They leap...they survive!
Meanwhile back at the campsite...
I was preparing the Bride's favorite menu for fine dining in the park,
as the Father of the Bride was preparing a crackling fire.
changed quickly into their formal evening wear...
and enjoyed the rest of the evening...while we sped away.
I can hear the Bride saying.....
"Wait till it's the younger 'sista's turn'"
