When my best friend asked me to be her matron of honor last August, I was absolutely over the moon. I mean jumping up and down, crying, screaming, freaking out, “oh my gosh,” over the moon! And naturally, my mind started racing with ideas for all of the amazing parties I wanted to throw her and her future hubby! First on the party planning docket: the engagement party (I’ll post that next week!). Second, and arguably the best, party on the docket: the crazy, wild bachelorette weekend!
Let me preface this whole she-bang – the bride is a proud member of the Bey Hive (as am I). For AJK’s birthday last year, we went to see the Lemonade tour when it passed through Houston. I’m pretty sure we both died and went to heaven right there in NRG Stadium. So when it came time to choose a theme for AJK’s last weekend as a “Single Lady,” I took my queues from Queen Bey. We were all “Drunk in Love” in Vegas celebrating our favorite “Feyoncé.” And of course, we channeled our inner Sasha Fierce all.weekend.long.
