When people think of a bachelorette party , they usually envision the kind of Las Vegas shenanigans that wind up in movies like Bridesmaids. You know what I mean — bar-hopping, clubbing, and all manner of penis-related accessories. However, not all bachelorette parties need to fit in this restrictive (and honestly cliché) mold.
Bride-to-be Aisha Amjad decided to blow all other bachelorette parties out of the water by taking her gaggle of girlfriends to an unforgettable weekend Coachella.
(And yes, I am extremely jealous.)
“I’ve done 12 festivals total, this is my fourth Coachella,” Amjad tell TheBerry. “I’ve been to EDC, Ultra, Outside Lands. Hence, my best friends know that I’m a total festival girl and a bachelorette at Coachella would make me very happy.”
Amjad says that she’s also a California girl at heart, so Coachella was a total no-brainer.
“I work for a start up in New York and just moved from San Francisco. I (flew in from) New York and the Bridesmaids flew in from LA/ San Francisco and Seattle.”
Not surprisingly, the group’s festival style was totally on point, complete with full tulle skirts.
Especially Amjad, who had the festival-bride look down pat.
The group rented a five-bedroom villa in Palm Springs, which, of course, had a pool.
“We threw an invite only pool party at the house with just 20 close friends,” Amjad says.
And if you were wondering whether or not the bride maintained her style during the pool party — do you even have to ask?
Turns out, a bridal party at Coachella is a pretty incredible combo.
Who could ask for better bonding and partying time?
Aisha’s wedding to her fiancé, Prasid, is next march, and their wedding hashtag is #Mr&MrsPookie. (Because if you haven’t realized that this wedding party is a millennial’s dream come true, then you haven’t been paying attention.)
Aisha says that she hopes her unconventional bachelorette party will inspire other women to take chances with personalizing their own celebrations.
“I think its important for girls to realize that we don’t have to follow the traditional norms of a bachelorette. That, since we are celebrating our wedding, our bachelorette can be anything we want it to be.”
