We hope you’ll be able to join us next Thursday for the third annual Bitter Bridesmaid Bash! Below please find the schedule for the evening and answers to a few frequently-asked questions.
6-7 PM: Registration
Arrive at the Bridal Studio (610 Main Street) between 6PM and 7PM, wearing yoru donation dress (don’t forget to wear something underneath – you’ll be dressless by the end of the night!). By committing to donate your dress at the end of the evening, your $10 admission fee will be waived.
6-9 PM: Pub Crawl
Your admission will get you drink specials at many bars throughout MainStrasse Village. Have fun wearing your dress for one final night out!
9-10 PM: Prizes
We will all gather at Cosmo’s to raffle prizes! Changing stations will be available at The Bridal Studio, where attendees can donate a dress and receive a t-shirt in exchange. The first 100 guests will receive a bag filled with gifts from our various sponsors (stamps will be given at registration to designate the first 100) that can also be picked up at The Bridal Studio.
FAQ About the Bitter Bridesmaid Bash!
What if I have a dress to donate but I don’t want to wear it? We encourage everyone to wear their dress since it adds to the fun, but if you’re just not feeling it, you can still donate your dress when you register and your admission fee will be waived!
I want to wear a dress but I’m not ready to give it up yet, what do I do? If you’re not ready to part with the dress yet, but you’d still like to wear it, you can either bring another dress for your admission or simply pay the $10 donation fee and party in your dress all night!
What if I have more than one dress? You can donate them all at once or give them to friends to donate for a fun girls night! Or, hold on to a few of the extras so you will have one for next year!
What happens at the end of the night when it’s time to donate my gown? First, remember to wear a pair of shorts and/or a tank top under your dress so you are able to go out in public at the end of the night :) When you’re ready to donate your dress, simply go back to the Bridal Studio where you registered and someone will be there to guide you to a changing area where we will have t-shirts on hand.
Are boys allowed? Yes!! The more the merrier! If you have an extra dress on hand, you can give it to them to donate or they can simply pay the $10 donation fee. Heck, if they want to wear the dress, that would be even more fun!
What condition should the dress be in? We ask that you donate gently used dresses that you think high school girls would like to wear to prom or other formal events. We also accept accessories, so if you have some shoes, bags and jewelry that you think a girl would like to wear, please donate those items as well! Dresses do not specifically have to be “bridesmaid’s” dresses… any formal dress will do.
ALL GOWNS AND ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO KENZIE’S CLOSET
