Bride Makes Over-the-Top Music Video Instead of Throwing a Bachelorette Party
Los Angeles-based TV writer Lauren MacKenzie was tired of going to Vegas. The last of her group of friends to get married, she had been four times for bachelorette parties and wasn't about to do the same when it came time for her own celebration.
So instead, she did the obvious alternative: She got friends and family to memorize complicated choreography, then hired a film production crew to capture them all in an epic music video montage. Naturally.
MacKenzie and her friends and family lip-synced to a bilingual "Be My Baby," then recreated Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" video and Kesha's "Timber." She even featured older relatives looking like the hardest ladies on the block. "The hardest part of the whole thing was trying to get my grandma to act like a bad ass," she told . "She wouldn't stop smiling!" The final product was unveiled at MacKenzie's wedding.
At first glance, hiring a film crew to make you feel like a diva seems like total bridezilla behavior. But this is actually genius. Instead of getting blackout drunk and eating penis-shaped cookies, MacKenzie got an experience she'll actually remember the morning after.
