That's what she said

By Hand On The Hip - 10/31/2017

Hi girls!

Wedding season 2017 has kicked in and this time, I am also a participant! :D The past few years has seen a revelation in the "hen party" side of the wedding shenanigans. Typically a bachelor's party is supposedly a guilt free pass for the groom to do everything he wishes to do before he ties the knot. But why should boys have all the fun? I have always wanted to have a cutesy, girls-only party of my own and since this was a highly requested post, I decided to write about my lovely bachelorette party weekend. Since Goa is one of my favorite holiday destinations in India, it had to be Goa or nothing! The planning began nearly a month before the date of travel.

We had booked our stay in Eros Boutique Hotel near Baga beach. Unfortunately for me, I fell sick a day before the trip, but who cares, right? I had to put it together for one fun weekend! The hotel had a beautiful, Greek decor and quite pricey to be honest. But since we were there for a night, we spent around 12K for 2 rooms and 6 people. The service was pretty good and they also arranged cabs for us.

We arrived in Goa at around 8 in the morning and went straight to the hotel to freshen up. After some light breakfast at the hotel, we headed to Britto's and gulped down some beer and gobbled up some sea food. In no time, there was a pretty "Bride-To-Be" sash on me and a funky headband on my head and the girls were bombarding me with silly dares like "get a picture with the hottest guy here" or "kiss that dude's girlfriend" or "get his number". The girls sure did have a lot of fun watching me embarrass myself (although the sash was a savior!). We spent the rest of the day chilling by Baga beach.

Once we returned to the hotel, the ladies were being sneaky and kept me hidden for a while. I had absolutely no idea as to what was cooking! And just like that, there was a delicious cake, some shots and a smug look on all of their faces waiting for me as I set foot in the room I wasn't allowed to enter. I was so overwhelmed to see that they had this whole "Koffee with Karan" kind of a game planned and had asked the groom a set of questions that I had to answer. For every answer I got wrong, I had to gulp down a shot (not to brag, but I did get most of the answers right :D) and boy, that was brutal! We then played some dirty charades (don't think it's safe to let out the details here :p) and headed to LPK to party all night long.

The following morning we checked out of the hotel and spent the whole day relaxing and recovering by the beach. We went to Sukho Thai for a much needed intense Thai massage, Baba Au Rum for brunch, lazed around the shacks at Candolim beach for some Vitamin Sea and took the bus back to Bangalore later in the evening. It was a really short trip, but a memorable one.

I wish every bride-to-be gets to spend quality time with her girls before the big day. And as far as my hen party goes, thank you, my dear girlies. I absolutely had a blast!
