If Anna Camp and Skylar Astin have anything to say about it, joint bachelor-bachelorette parties are ALL the rage. The Pitch Perfect stars celebrated their upcoming nuptials with joint festivities this weekend in California, and we have the fantastic photos to prove it.
The bride- and groom-to-be started the day with separate celebrations with their besties — a bridal shower brunch for Camp and a pool party for Astin, according to E! News. The photo evidence below proves that it was a grand ol' time — complete with pool floats for the boys and silly selfies for the ladies. In one such photo with his friends, 28-year-old Astin captioned it "KILLIN IT at the Bachelor Party!" and with all of his best guys jokingly laying face down in the pool. (Strange but punny guy you are there, Skylar.) In another photo of his entire crew, he wrote, "This is the face of a guy who's about to rendezvous with his wife to be!!" while he grinned away. Cue the 'awwwws."
As for the soon-to-be Mrs., Camp, 33, appeared to be enjoying herself just as much. She posed for a selfie with a crown atop her head and her BFFs all in the photo behind her (we see you, Brittany Snow!). The ladies-in-waiting treated the bride to a bridal shower luncheon to kick off the day, and then the rowdiness began (as evidenced by Snow's sassy note to the bride about getting her drink on, below).
After separate fêtes to begin the extravaganza, the two joined forces to have the ultimate bachelor-bachelorette party activity: line dancing! Outfitted in a short white dress and cowgirl hats (complete with a veil, obviously), the former True Blood actress piled into a limo with her best girls to meet her groom and his men for some country line dancing. This all went down at the Cowboy Palace Saloon in Chatsworth, California.
The happy (or should we say aca-awesome) couple announced their engagement at the beginning of 2016 after a NYE proposal — in which they both shared matching Instagram posts announcing the happy news. The two have been dating for over three years after meeting on the set of Pitch Perfect and seem to be super in love (let alone absolutely adorable). This is the first marriage for Astin and second for Camp, who filed for divorce from actor Michael Mosley in 2013.
It's safe to say that their weekend of fun was quite a hit — and exhausting, as an pre-wedding parties are, of course. "And that's a wrap on the greatest weekend ever celebrating true love and happiness!" Camp shared on social media after the festivities. "Thank you to all the wonderful friends that helped put a smile on my face. I love you all so much. Now... Sleep." If the bride and groom already had this much fun on their pre-wedding soirées, we can only imagine how lively their big day will be. See the photos of the fun, below!
