It's wedding season! We all love weddings but have you ever really thought about what actually goes into the planning of a wedding? Having just been the maid of honor in my best friend's wedding, I can say from experience that this can be a very stressful time.

As the maid of honor, I was responsible for planning both the bridal shower and the bachelorette party, and let me tell you, it was no easy task.

Hendricks County has some great local shops and businesses that are definitely worth checking out if you are trying to plan a girls night out for a bachelorette party, a bridal shower or just simply need some great gift ideas!

Melissa Cain Art Studio  

If you are looking for a fun group activity to do as part of a bachelorette party or a bridal shower the Melissa Cain Art Studio is just the place for you. Located on the square in Danville at 68 S. Jefferson St., this art studio has everything to offer from art classes, painting parties, private lessons and even custom artwork.

An adult painting party would be a fun and interactive activity for a part of a girls' day or night out, and the best part is they can even come to you! The host simply chooses the painting project beforehand and then the group just follows the step-by-step instructions to create their own painting. No artistic experience is necessary.

This local art studio is definitely worth considering for your wedding festivities.
