After nude photos surfaced of Prince Harry and his crown jewels partying in Vegas the palace issued a blackout on the nude photos. But they’ve already made the rounds of most major news outlets reminding us of an important lesson– what happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas. And now we’re wondering, should you party like Prince Harry during your bachelorette bash?
While many antics can be brushed off as bachelorette party traditions, some activities will definitely stick around to haunt you. And that’s probably not the best way to start off your new marriage. Granted, Harry is a young, single guy with money to blow. He’s not tied down to anyone accept his prim and proper grandmother who likely fainted after finding out about the revealing Vegas snapshots. But Harry is a good example of what can so easily happen these days thanks to social media and camera phones. It isn’t enough to have the best bachelorette decorations and bachelorette favors. Be classy as well!
You could ask your bachelorette guests to sign privacy waivers before your party, but that doesn’t mean a compromising photo won’t end up in the wrong hands– or online for everyone to see. (Including your own sweet grandmother.) So in light of Prince Harry’s indiscretions, it’s probably best to follow these three cardinal bachelorette party rules:
1. Stay clothed. We’re not talking turtlenecks and floor length skirts, but at least keep your personal areas buttoned up.
2. Party only with people you trust. Your bachelorette party is a time to let loose, but it’s not the time to do that with strangers who could easily break any photography rules you had in place.
3. Think about the people that aren’t there. Your bachelorette party is one night and it should be a spectacular one. But in the scheme of life, it’s only one night and the people that aren’t there– like your fiance or your grandmother– shouldn’t be let down by anything that happens.
Obviously Prince Harry broke all of these rules and he’s now paying the price. And when he returns to Buckingham Palace he’ll probably pay an even bigger penalty with a stern punishment from his grandmother. Now we’d like to know– did you do anything you regret during your bachelorette party? What advice do you have for other bachelorettes?
