My friend Diana and I recently threw a Stepford themed bachelorette for our friend Rachele. She's the kind of girl who loves a good theme and goes all out when she puts on a party, so the pressure to think of something bridal-related yet unique was on.
Initially, during our wine-fueled party planning sessions we'd been leaning towards a 1950's theme. It seemed fun to bust out retro dresses, decorations, and (of course) cocktails. But we sort of felt it was a little bit predictable, not exactly what we were looking for. We kept on brainstorming until we had a stroke of genius and came up with the Stepford Wife themed bachelorette. It was so perfect, we'd still have the dresses, the drinks, the decorations, but there was that extra element: the Stepford Secret.
If you've seen either version of the movie, then you know what the secret is..
..On the outside the Stepford wives seem perfect, eerily perfect...
..because on the inside, they're all robots. This meant we had a cyborg secret to reveal to the guests once the party got started. Hello ladies, you are not just 1950-style party goers, you are also robots. Cyborgs in pretty party dresses.
