Creative idea for a bachelorette party: "My bridesmaids and I did a triathlon."
Bachelorette: Monica Vazquez, Puerto Rico
Monica, a personal trainer, is serious about fitness so she wanted to take on a big challenge before her big day. She invited her bridesmaids to go to Puerto Rico for a triathlon.
Party payoff: "Five of my bridesmaids ended up doing the race. It was my second triathlon—I only learned how to ride a bike the summer before. My one friend is quite an advanced triathlete but it was the first time for the other three. They're really good friends and I'm a really convincing person! We ended up renting bicycles since we didn't want to fly our bikes down and three of the girls ended up racing on bright yellow bikes that said 'Rent Me.' It was absolutely hysterical. When people saw me go past wearing a veil, they kept screaming 'Here Comes the Bride!' in Spanish. The organizers of the race found out that I was getting married and I got a special announcement at the finish!"
If you try this: Challenge yourself and your friends. Your enthusiasm and passion may even inspire them to try something new they might end up loving! It worked for this woman.
