It's Here!

Miranda's Bachelorette Party!

We all love Miranda and can't wait to celebrate her marriage to Nate with a unique, largely personal girls' day out! Our hope is that you can join us. What follows is a brief outline of the festivities and details regarding logistics, cost, etc. Just give me (Katie) a shout, either via Facebook or e-mail to confirm you are planning to attend some or all aspects of the day! Thanks! Also, Miranda asked that most of the day be a surprise, so mum's the word! At this point, she only knows the date!

Mir's Bachelorette Day

Saturday, July 13th 2013 at 8am

Multiple Locations!

8 am - Surprise Miranda with Breakfast:

We'd like to meet at Big Y in Mansfield at 8 am. Here's why - we want to surprise our friend with breakfast and by picking her up to begin the day. So if we all "shop" together, we can run in to the store, each pick up a breakfast item without duplicating any and go! Plus, we're having t-shirts made, and I figure if we show up at her house, all wearing one, it'll be cool (Nicole aka Niki B aka Nabs paid for these out of pocket - so we each owe her approximately $21 for these. They are super cute. Navy blue with light blue writing.) Also, Big Y will afford us the space to park the majority of our cars. So. Big Y - shop, throw on t-shirts, park, and go!

8:30 - 9:45 - Breakfast

10 am - Noon - The Adventure Park at Storrs:

Literally across the road from Miranda's house. We have a reservation for 10 am. Ropes course/ziplining is supposed to take approximately two hours. Cost is $40 per person (plus a few dollars each to cover Miranda).

Noonish - 2 pm (flexible) - Lunch:

We were thinking Moe's or Willington Pizza is on the way to our next location. We'll let Miranda decide? Bonus - there's lots of FroYo right near Moe's...

2:30 pm - 5:30 pm (flexible) - Decorating Wine Glasses

After lunch we'll head to our friend Jenn's (she lives in Willimantic) to decorate wine glasses. Between lunch and Jenn's would be an ideal time to pick-up any vehicles of people who may need them, so we'll have to keep that in mind. We plan to decorate two glasses each (similarly) - one to keep and one to gift to Miranda! Additionally, we thought it'd be a lot of fun to then use the wine glasses we decorated at the wedding too (but of course will have to run that by Miranda!). We were also hoping to incorporate a mini wine tasting or maybe treat it more like a "wine bar" - in this vein I am encouraging everyone to bring a bottle of their favorite wine. Not wanting to go out that night and drink on an empty stomach, we'll also either do a finger food type dinner or order in...again I think we should maybe base it on what Miranda wants.

6 pm - Whenever - Pub Crawl:

Not entirely sure which Willimantic bars we'll be hitting up, but I think it's safe to assume Corleone's, The Lucky Frog, and maybe Main Street. We're going to leave this a little less organized and kind of see where the night takes us. Safety first, though, of course, so Jenn has enlisted her husband to drive us from place to place in their ginormous SUV.


Everyone is more than welcome to spend the night at Jenn's, but of course, we understand if you have to get back to your families at some point or if you are uncomfortable staying at a friend of a friend's house (and actually, we haven't even told Miranda that there is a potential for staying over, although she may've assumed). We also are thinking about going to the beach the next day (RI) and all are welcome to join us, whether you stay over or not, but again, Miranda doesn't know this is the plan, so she may have something already going on on Sunday or something. We'll run both of these things by her some time during the day on Saturday!

Ok, ladies, I think that just about covers it! I've bolded any expenses throughout the day, but if you have any questions or concerns about costs or anything else at all, please feel free to let me know. We want everyone to have an awesome, worry-free time and can't wait to see you!
