So your best friend's big day is just around the corner. Kudos for her! But before the ring slips on she must have fun with her girlfriends! And Twin Falls is full of places to let her hair down and go crazy and wild one last time before her fairy tale wedding. It's very stressful planning a wedding: finding the perfect dress, dealing with drama between you bridesmaids, hunting down flowers that are just the right shade, reprinting address labels three times so her announcements look flawless, and on and on and on. Believe me, girls, she deserves a night out on the town, one to relax, one to forget about all these things that make her want to pull her hair out, and probably most importantly, one to do all the things that she's too embarrassed to do in front of her fiancé because she's afraid he'll change his mind. So plan a night for her to let go, have a good time, and remind her that no matter what happens, her wedding will be perfect because he will be standing beside her.
