If the bride-to-be is more the type to wear a sports bra and some cleats than a party tiara and a frilly sash, don't try to turn her into something she's not. News flash: Sports-themed parties aren't just for men! If your gal pal would rather spend her girl bonding time in the bleachers than at a spa or out clubbing, make her happy. Buy group tickets to a minor league baseball game, an MLS soccer game, or even a college football game. And, when picking bachelorette party accessories, forget the stereotypical veil covered in condoms and attach this sporty girl's veil to the back of a baseball cap that says "Bachelorette" on it. If heading out to the games isn't an option, why not set up a special athletic day at a local park? Break out the gear and play mini team events and maybe even give out cheesy ribbons to the winners and an MVP award to the bride. At the end of the day your buddy will thank you for letting her be herself.
