Yes, it's still Wedding Season, and if your mailbox full of invites is any indication, it's going to be a busy summer filled with fittings, dinners and my personal favorite, bachelorette parties. While we all know geeky bride and groom cakes are all the rage, word is geeky bachelorette parties are on the rise as well. No, you aren't required to wear your geekiest tee shirt, or bring your laptop, but many video-game-loving ladiez opt to plan video game tournaments, karaoke festivals and Dance Dance Revolution competitions - mixed with a few cocktails and yummy treats of course!
For my guide to making your bachelorette party (or your BFF's party) a little more geeky (and a lot more fun),
Video Game Competitions: Plan a night filled with girlie cocktails, food and a good old fashioned video game competition. If you are renting a hotel room or in a foreign space make sure you plan ahead and have enough room for Dance Dance Revolution (trust me it gets a little wild) and wii sports because both will help you burn off all those drinks.
Karaoke: If there's no fantastically cheesy karaoke bar in your city or town (you know the kind where you think "gosh, a bachelorette party would be perfect here!") and you don't own a karaoke machine, consider getting a nifty karaoke program like Singstar or Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol for your video game console. If neither of those work, your local video game store will have an option for your console, trust me, they're a hit.
