You have been chosen as best man for yourbest friend's wedding, congratulations! After the effusions, the laughter, the tears and many thanks, it is flattering at the time... With a little hindsight, your smile fades little by little because only one word comes to your mind: ORIGINALITY! Well yes! A bachelorette party is a must before getting married. To help you a little, here is a beautiful idea of EVJF (as we say): A day in the vineyards!
It's better to do this day in the sun, for your feet (avoid the mud) and the happiness of your friend. For that, privilege the regions of the South of France such as Languedoc Roussillon , Provence. The landscapes are magnificent and the vines are everywhere! With a train journey, from Paris, which lasts only 3 hours, you will quickly arrive at your destination.
After dropping your stuff at a local's house, in an airbnb or simply in a hotel, get together and set up a little itinerary for your friend. Why not invent a treasure hunt or an obstacle course around the vine and wine? Write little words like charades, rebus or riddles. Be creative!
Put on your boots (you never know!), blindfold your friend and lead her to the heart of a beautiful vineyard... you've already identified. You will have done some research beforehand on the culture of the vine, the different means of production, the appellations to impress your friend! You may also want to plan a wine tasting in one (or more) of the region's cellars, a ride on a horse, a 2CV, or a gyropod in the vineyards. Be imaginative and make her dream.
To end your hen party, take a good bottle of wine, a few glasses, and toast the sunset, your friend will remember it for a long time.
And remind her that
"Love is drinking from the same wine, but each in his own cup.”
