OCTOBER 2012: EDITOR'S NOTE
Author: Maggie Washo | Photographer: Photography by Anne
When we were trying to come up with a theme for our Bachelorette of 2013 party, somehow “Bridesmaids” seemed a natural fit. After all, just about any woman who has been single for a while has ended up in at least one wedding. Ashton Kelley suggested we recreate the poster from the recent Judd Apatow movie, and voila! We had our inspiration for the promotional ads.
Just for fun, we decided to take a few more shots, exaggerating the frenzied scramble for the bride’s bouquet at every wedding. Personally, I can’t think of a more ridiculous tradition, so it was easy for me to make fun of it. Needless to say, the bouquet toss will be integrated into our Bachelorette of 2013 party, with a $300 cash prize going to whoever catches the bouquet, which in a funny twist, will be thrown to the crowd at 10 p.m. by our current Bachelor of the Year, CJ Steedley.
We are really excited about this year’s party, which will be held at Reilley’s Plaza (a.k.a. “The Triangle”) on October 25. In addition to Cranford & Sons stomping it out all night, we are giving away over $1,500 in cash prizes for the best costumes (see details on page 9), will have a complimentary photo booth for our guests all night, and the first 100 people that check-in with us at Jump & Phil’s get a free drink.
So far we have about 40 beautiful ladies vying for the title, so come on out, and help them get into the top ten by voting and raising money for the Island Rec Center.
We can’t wait to see you.
