Your homegirl wants you to be part of her big day, but does that really call for glitter, bride-tribe swag, and a blowout party? Two Cosmo readers throw down.
“She made us do a scavenger hunt and it was really fun.”
“I was taking a nap at my parents’ house one afternoon—about two months after my brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law got engaged—when the bride’s sister stopped by. She woke me up, handed me an envelope, and told me to get in her car. She said that my brother and his fiancée had set up a scavenger hunt for us! We had to solve a series of riddles about important locations from our childhoods, which made sense since the four of us grew up together. The first clue sent us to my former middle school, where a bouquet of pink balloons and an envelope were waiting.
We stopped at five locations, including an ice rink where we used to hang out. The final stop was the church where they planned to get married. That’s when we found a small box waiting for me and the bride’s sister. Mine had a travel-size bottle of booze and bridal-themed nail polish (ya know, the essentials). There was also a note that read: ‘Will you be my maid of honor?’
